LG Tribute 5 LS675 Firmware Download – Unbrick Tutorial

Now boot the phone into Download Mode.

To do this, turn OFF the phone. Keep the volume UP key pressed & Plug-in the USB Cable. The other end of USB Cable should be connected to the PC.

The phone will boot into Download Mode with “Firmware Update” screen showing up. The computer will start installing drivers for download mode automatically.



Once the drivers are successfully installed, Run LG UP flashing tool.

It should show up the connected phone as shown above.

To browse for the downloaded stock ROM, click on the 3 dot icon.



Browse for the file LS675ZV5.dz file in the downloaded folder and select it. The stock ROM is usually in KDZ and TOT format. Our flashing file is in Dz extension.



After loading the firmware file it’ll show the current android firmware version. Click on “Start” to initiate the flashing process






Let the flashing complete. Even when the “Progress” says 100%, wait till the phone is rebooted. Once the phone boots to the home screen, the Status will change to “COMPLETE” as in the above screenshot.

On completion of the above process, my installed apps were intact, GSM unlock was also not affected, but root was gone.

  1. Good day!
    Many thanks for such valuable and detailed recovery instructions (firmware) for the LG Tribute 5 LS675.
    I have a Tribute 5 LS675, and only thanks to you I was able to get it back from the soft brick.
    But you write “… If you have LG Tribute 5, you must have rooted it with ease. However, his successor LG Tribute HD is one of the latest LG Sprint prepaid phones that work on marshmallows, which is still not possible … ”
    I still can not translate LG Tribute 5 LS675 from CDMA mode to GSM (my attempts turned into soft brick).
    I ask your help in solving this issue. Thanks in advance.

  2. Excelente post, otra consulta: por que al darle actualizar desde mi tribute 5 despues de reniciar queda en el logo android. ?

  3. Im sorry if this was answered already but …
    I get 4% of it before it ERRORS! CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE. w/ floating window Error:flashing fail.
    Thanks for your knowledge. I hope you can help my Lg. 🙂

  4. phone boots firmware updater, even after trying recovrty mode, it goes back to firm update. With LGUP, it gets to 99% and then displays error message

  5. phone will connect but wont start downloading drivers tried just to run LGUP and goes to 4% before error pops up and then nothing

  6. Press volume up + vol down + power button simultaneously to bypass configuring your phone does not work for me. I followed the tutorial and everything seemed to work but can’t get past configuring your phone.

  7. How do I get the phone into Download Mode when nothing comes up on the screen, All my Tribute 5 will do is connect to my computer as qhsusb_bulk. I tried holding the volume button up and plugging it in but it does nothing but connect.

  8. Nvm I found it and it worked!! Thanks. I bricked it in the first place from trying to install supersu and accidentally deleted the wrong file but all good now.

  9. I downloaded the LG driver to my local library computer but I dont know where to find it on the computer. There is still a file in the download section and I installed it but I cant find the installed version. Do you know where it might be located on the PC?

  10. The bootloader unlocks on the Tribute 5 nearly exactly the same as its sister variant, the LG K7. Therefore TWRP for the K7 is very much compatible. Faatboot mode can be entered into on the Tribute 5 by temporarily nuking the /laf partition. Once in fastboot mode, bootloader unlocking is as simple as: fastboot oem unlock.

  11. I followed all steps and installed the stock firmware but the phone hasn’t changed. it’s still stuck on the Lg logo screen. It turns off and restarts all over again.. when I attempt to reboot into recovery mode it states it’s loading then screen goes black. idk what happened. I’ve tried this before and it worked perfectly. Help!

  12. Fam, you saved my phone and my @$$…thanks sooooo much…really easy…and I’m extremely appreciative! You just saved me the back and forward with LG. Grace and Peace

    very useful tutorial i highly appriciate you to the absolute fullest thank you thank you thank you

  14. Thanks for the information. This helped me to restore the phone, but the GSM unlock process is gone. I am back to square. Also, i see WIFI is not working as expected, seems the firmware may be different for my LGLS675 model? where I can find latest version?

  15. Im lost I installed the lg drivers went to download mode on the phone installed all the drivers loaded lhup found my phone opened the bin file started the flash and it stops at 4% with an erroe: unmount userdata sucess wtf is that? i cant flash the phone because of this error.

  16. Sir….

    Please clarify …

    We are rooting the phone for unlocking…
    After the unlocking procedures are done Can we remove the root?
    Will it affect the Unlock?
    The OS will be safe as non-rooted phone. No?

    Am I right or wrong? Pls tell me.


  17. Thanks , you saved my phone, while replacing Kingo root with supersu, it was stuck in bootloop. However, were you able to root after recovery by updating firmware.? I see when I run Kingo root, it boots cellphone and does thing.
