Yes, it is a shame that the V12 firmware seems to be nowhere to be found. Phone dealers are still selling the LG Voyager, in new or remanufactured form, because it was such a popular phone. It still is in my opinion, a very good basic phone. But what the phone sellers are not telling you, is that most of the new units being sold are V11 firmware, which is no longer supported on Verizons network. You must have V12 in order to download data from Verizon. So you endup with a phone that cannot utilize some of its features....thanks Verizon.
Just for anyone still trying to update this phone to v12. It won't work. All the rapidshare links are broken.
* the VX10KS.dll in LGVX10000S_VX10KV12 is not correct for LGNPST as it can't be registered and doesn't have GenericModel dependency.
* I did find a LGNPST_VX10000.dll that correctly registers but it's broken trying to read setting.xml
* it is possible use another model definition such as vx9600 or vx8560 (and using the vx10k setting.xml) to view data on the phone, but no way would I attempt to update the firmware.
Verizon has dropped support for this phone so it can't be reprogrammed in-store. Wasted 2 days searching and trying, hopefully this post will shorten the pain for anyone after me.
This really is a waste of time. The DLL file does not work, and the procedure is so easy to screw up for novices that it really is too risky. I have tried numerous variations of the files offered, on various computers, and with various operating systems. All of them have the same result, in that the DLL file will not register. Save the frustration folks, and head down to your Verizon store. You might get lucky and find one that still has the software to do this.
I appreciate the time and energy that folks have invested into this sequence, and the LG app and the drivers do work fine. But without a functioning dll file, this whole procedure is worthless.
I know it's been quite a while since anyone has posted in this thread....Is this possible to do using Windows 7?
will this update get me past the catalog error when I try to get vz navigator to work
Post #18 leads to no where. Can you give me a new link and tell me where to put it? thanks
Would you be nice enough to help me update mine too. I just bought a phone off ebay also and have to update to V12 also. but I'm not doing so well. it seems my phone but won't reg. it. So I can't get any further. thanks Rachel
I updated the links in the first post - try it now. (sorry it took so long)

Run this and replace the corresponding files in files_for_upgrade (under the model folder) with the ones that were originally downloaded. Rename the .dll that the extractor makes to LGNPST_10000.dll, and replace the one in the VX10000 folder. Can someone PLEASE upload the DLL installer linked above? This link leads to a blank screen.
I am having the same problem as many posters: LGNPST will not recognize my phone and I cannot manually register the DLL included with the .BINs and such. I am stuck at the very end of the process, and just need the LGNPST DLL. Thanks very much!!
I bought a LG900G smartphone. It's not in the list of phones anywhere so i can't ask my question on the forum because i have no phone info. Like verizon has the *228 to update, how can i do it for this phone?. my reception is not good.
