Most LG Android users know that LGUP is a excellent tool for flashing LG official firmware like KDZ and TOT package. However, sometimes, LGUP cannot identify our LG device or invariably encounter some problems, frustratingly, it has a higher probability.

Now, to get a better sense of LGUP, XDA recognized contributor autoprime developed an instant tool called UPPERCUT. By using UPPERCUT, LGUP will quickly recognize your LG device.

You know, LGUP is a Windows tool, from that point on, UPPERCUT is the same thing.

Then, how should we use UPPERCUT?

Preparatory Files

The version of UPPERCUT is currently 1.0, it supports almost all of LG devices powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 MSM8992, Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 MSM8976, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 SoC.

As you see, LGUP you downloaded is version 1.14, why use LGUP 1.14? That’s because UPPERCUT requires LGUP 1.14, and also LGUP need to be installed in its default directory.
