This webpage offers the official download link for the LG K30 X410MK firmware flash file that you can manually flash by using the appropriate flashing tool (also available below) that works for your manufacturer.

You can flash the stock ROM on your LG K30 X410MK device to remove root access, replace the custom recovery with a stock recovery image, fix bugs that you might be experiencing with your current firmware version, and just to get a newer or older version of the Android operating system up and running on your smartphone. Before getting started with the flashing, though, there are some things you should know about the Android operating system, your device, and these stock ROM files.

An Android device that stays using stock ROMs the way the manufacturer and phone carrier networks intended them to be used will never make changes to the system partition. This is because the over the air updates that they receive are different updates, meaning they just generally patch over the top of the existing software instead of completely replace it. This results in less data being used and the updates having you money, but it also means that when you do make changes to the system partition, things are different in nature.

Anyone who gets root access or installs a custom recovery image might, in fact, have made changes to the system partition. It can happen just by getting root access (depending on the Android version you rooted), installing BusyBox, removing the stock applications by using a root app like Titanium Backup, and so forth. You can use a search engine such as Google to further research what makes changes to the system partition if you have root access or a custom recovery image installed. Those with system partition changes may experience unexpected behavior when going back to the stock ROM, which is why custom recovery and root file developers do not support official software updates from the manufacturers and carriers.

Those of you who have not made any system partition changes should have no worries flashing the stock ROMs as many times as you want. Even those who did make system partition changes won’t necessarily have unexpected behavior, but there is a chance of it happening.

What Is Android Firmware?

Firmware is the operating system and its applications that control how the smartphone or tablet that runs on Android operates. While you may see the words “software update available” on your device’s display, we call it firmware to highlight its close relationship with the device manufacturers hardware.

If you prefer technical jargon, firmware is the specific programming that gets written to a device’s non-volatile memory. The firmware gets added to the device during the manufacturing process and is the middleman in helping software run on the hardware. Firmware can be written as read-only memory (ROM), erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM), or flash memory.

The Android operating system is more open than much of its competitors in iOS, Windows 10 Mobile, and Tizen. You always get firmware running on your device out of the box, but if you do not like it, you can swap it over with custom firmware or other firmware versions that were made for your device. This flexibility helps with troubleshooting, or if you know you would prefer a different Android version that was made available.

Why Reinstall Stock Firmware?

Did you think you may need to restore the stock firmware on your device? Here are some of the things that you can achieve with stock firmware files:

  • Upgrade or downgrade the version of Android on your device
  • Fix common mobile device-related problems, such as unbearable bugs in the software
  • Remove custom recovery images such as TWRP
  • Unroot the Android operating system, regardless of what method/tool you may have used to get root access
  • Unbrick your smartphone or tablet
  • Reinstall the operating system
  • Fix invalid IMEI problems

How to Install LG K30 X410MK Firmware Using Qualcomm Flash Image Loader (QFIL)

Here is how you can use the Qualcomm Flash Image Loader to install firmware on a LG K30 X410MK smartphone or tablet with a Windows computer:

Notes:

  • If you do not see the “Download” button, it is probably because your device is not yet connected to the computer. The flashing only becomes possible if the tool detects a device.
  • The Qualcomm Flash Image Loader is only compatible with the Windows operating system. You can use it on anything ranging from Windows XP through to Windows 10. Newer versions of Windows will also become compatible, but you may need to download an updated version of the tool.
  • Flashing firmware files with flashing tools will result in lost applications and contacts if they are not backed up first. You should backup as much data as you can before flashing: use free applications such as Helium from Google Play, transfer files to the computer, use cloud storage, whatever it takes to be safe.
  • The Qualcomm Flash Image Loader tool is made by the official Qualcomm brand.

1. Install the latest version of the OEM USB driver on the same computer that you plan on using for the installation of the flashing tool.

If there is no OEM USB driver for your device, install the Universal ADB driver instead.

2. Download the latest version of the Qualcomm Flash Image Loader (QFIL) file on the computer, and then extract the file by right-clicking on it and choosing Extract from the menu.

3. Open the Qualcomm Flash Image Loader (QFIL) folder, and then double-click on the QFIL application so that the flashing tool launches.

Tip: It’s the file with the green icon.

4. Turn off the smartphone that you want to flash and hold the Volume Up key and connect it to the computer with the USB cable.

The smartphone should now be in EDL Mode (Emergency Download Mode) and ready for the firmware flashing. If yours is not in EDL mode, use a search engine to find how to get your specific device into EDL mode.

5. Under Select Build Type, select Flat Build. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

QFIL -- Select Build Type
Select either “Flat build” and “Meta build,” depending on your firmware type. Most will likely be flat builds.

6. Under Select Programmer, click on the Browse button and upload the firmware file that you’re looking to flash to this location. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

The firmware file you need is often the file with the .mbn extension at the end.

Browse -- Select Programmer

7. If your firmware has a rawprogram() file, click on the Load XML button and then upload the rawprogram() file to this location. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

Load XML

8. Give QFIL a few seconds to load the rest of the data automatically.

9. Click on the Download button, and the flashing will begin. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

Note: Firmware files can be quite large and subsequently flashing can take 10 minutes or sometimes even longer. You know the firmware is flashed when the device reboots for the last time.

That’s all.

FAQ

There are some common questions people have before installing firmware files. Here are the ones we are regularly asked:

How to Unroot LG K30 X410MK When Installing New Firmware

There can often be a variety of ways to unroot a device that runs Android, and they depend on what method you used to get root access. If you installed SuperSU for root access, then you can open the app and find the option to unroot directly from SuperSU’s settings. On the other hand, if you do not have SuperSU, and you do have a LG smartphone or tablet, then you can always unroot by installing the stock firmware. Once you have followed the guide above, your device will automatically be unrooted. You can verify that is the case by installing one of the many applications from Google Play that checks for root access. As long as you are using a reliable app, then typically it will not lie about the root status of your mobile device.

How to Restore Stock Recovery on LG K30 X410MK When Installing New Firmware

One of the most common reasons for installing the stock firmware is to remove a custom recovery image and revert to the stock recovery. There is nothing you need to do extra to reinstall the stock recovery on your device; when you install the stock firmware, it will automatically install the stock recovery partition on the device once again.

Additional Firmware

You can download Android firmware for other Android devices if you have another smartphone or tablet from a different manufacturer.
