    3. Open the LG G5 H850 QFIL Files folder on your PC to view its content.

    4. Launch (Open) QFIL on your PC. You may download latest QPST from here if not installed on your PC yet.

    5. Now, on QFIL, choose Flat Build and for programmer choose the firehose file seen in the QFIL Files folder you opened in Step 3 above.

    6. Click Load XML and choose G5 H850 rawprogam0.xml and patch0.xml files both in the QFIL Files folder in which the Firehose file is located.

    7. Finally, click Download. QFIL should successfully download the files on your LG G5 H850.
    Once QFIL has successfully downloaded the files, your LG G5 H850 should reboot automatically. Note that first boot may take up to 15 minutes to complete!

    How to Unbrick (Debrick) LG G5 H850 Using Loader File / SD Card

    1. From the LG G5 H850 Unbrick Project Folder, download the loader file and extract it onto a folder on your PC.

    2. Now, format your SD Card. exFAT is preferred.

    3. Download DiskImageRev2 from here and extract it onto a folder on your PC then, open it.

    4. Slot your SD Card in a card reader and connect it to your PC.

    5. Launch DiskImageRev2 on your PC - as Admin preferably.

    6. On launch, DiskImageRev2 should detect and display the drive where your SD Card is connected. If otherwise, browse to select the correct drive.

    7. From DiskImageRev2, browse to the folder where you saved / copied the LG G5 H850 Loader.img file on your PC and select it.

    8. Now, click Write and wait until DiskImageRev2 completes the process.

    9. Once DiskImageRev2 has successfully written the files on the SD Card, your SD Card is now bootable! You may now insert it on your LG G5 H850 and boot the device using its bootloader key combo.

      Brief Note:

      The Loader method requires a full ROM Dump also known as a full blk0 backup of a working LG G5 H850 correctly flashed or written on a pretty good and fast class 10 SD Card.
