LG Tribute HD LS676 USB & ADB Drivers Download & Install – Tutorial

LG Tribute HD USB drivers are necessary for ADB mode, Diag Mode, and Download mode.

The most common use of ADB mode is unlocking the bootloader and download mode is used for flashing a stock ROM. The Diag Mode is used for CDMA programming.

Even though the bootloader of Tribute HD can’t be unlocked, at least we can use the ADB mode to enable adoptable storage. This feature was added in android marshmallow and addresses the low internal storage problem to a big extent. This way we can adopt a part of sd card as internal storage which can be used for storing apps and game data.

So, Let’s proceed with the USB Driver Installation –

LG Tribute HD LS676 ZV3 Stock ROM / Firmware Unbrick Guide

At one time getting a Stock ROM for LG smartphones was an easy task. I got it many times from LG’s official website. Today LG doesn’t have, even a PC Suite program to restore the phone back to factory state. If your phone gets bricked you have to keep on searching all over the net for the stock firmware. People have even started charging for it.

I was looking for Tribute HD Stock ROM since a long time. I found it on few websites for a fee. Only recently I got it for free. Thanks to SickySticky @ XDA Forums for sharing this ROM.

I would suggest you flash your phone with this stock firmware only if you’ve exhausted all the troubleshooting steps.
Small issues can be addressed with a factory data reset. If the phone is not turning on then your last resort is flashing.  However, flashing can be done only if the phone is soft bricked i.e it can boot in download mode.

If it’s completely dead, then the issue may be with battery, charging port or motherboard.

Even if you Tribute HD is working fine today, you should have the stock firmware handy for an adverse situation. To get going Let’s download the necessary files from below download link –

Save the downloaded files in your computer. It contains LG USB Driver, LGUP DLL setup files for Tribute HD LS676 and LGUP setup file. Install all of these.

And finally, install LGUP. This is the main software for flashing the Tribute HD stock firmware.

Don’t run LGUP after installation. It won’t work until the time you connect your phone to the computer in download mode.
