    I had to remove my links from my original post, because I am a new member. This may affect my question so I will rewrite this best I can without them...

    BACKGROUND:
    The other day I was trying to fix a Doctor Who game, did not work, formatted the 64G card, and then the OS no longer boot. Spent hours and got nowhere and ended wiping the phone. Now trying to get this mod back on it.

    Put back in the older 2G card which has the Clockwork recovery on it and trying to get it to access it, but can not access the card.

    Cannot access WIFI (my password is 64 characters long and the stock OS keyboard not have the symbols, but was connected before for weeks). Trying to access the TXT document on the card with the long password, but cannot access the card with the stock OS I reloaded.

    I need some help how to access that text file for get the Cyan OS installed from the recovery off the 2G card (PC\VS920 4G\SD Card\clockworkmod), boot back up, and put back in my 64G card (which the laptop can not access from the phone).

    I have done my directions once and after 4h it booted into the Cyan mod. I was happy being in the OS again, changing settings, etc, but then after a reboot it has since gotten into a loop. If it is a battery issue, I have it plugged into USB to help but no good (I do know though that even though I have it plugged into USB, if I am using the phone the battery level still goes down even though "charging").

    I do not have a SIM card for this phone. It was given to me just to access WIFI at home and work. It is a Verizon 4G LTE Spectrum VS920.

    I like to know if anyone feel like my directions need a tweak to start ALL OVER again, before attempting to do so. Maybe I did something wrong.

    Right now, I can not boot into the Clockwork Recovery (VOL U and D and POWER).

    The only error I got in the setup process was this running bootloader from the SpectrumPwnageTool:

    PROBLEM! MD5SUM of download and actual file do not match! Danger!
    remote object '/data/local/tmp/pwn/pwn_success' does not exist[*] Fatal generic error[*] 1.) Either you exited the md5check.sh script prematurely,[*] 2.) Or MD5 check on device failed[*] Please try again

    If you see my directions need a tweak, update, etc before I attempt all this again, please let me know.

    Thank you.

    This is only necessary if you either soft brick the phone, or want to wipe it, or if the OTA update screwed the bootloader (this was the case with this one)

    > Put phone in download mode:

    Power off the LG Spectrum (holding the power button until the phone forces itself off).
    To confirm Remove the Battery.
    Insert the USB cable and wait for the charging screen to come on.
    Now Press and HOLD both Keys in the same order: Volume Down Button and Volume Up Button.
    Let go off all the buttons when you first see the LG logo.

    It is not yet rooted so answer NO then later YES (answer yes here the first time if towelroot is run).

    I can not find the reply button to the first response I got so....

    Took me awhile to figure out how to do that. I eventually got the Windows MD5 Utility and found I can open the MD% files for the code and I tested all these MD5 files in this SpectrumPwnageTooland they all were successful:
    boot_nowallpaper.img.md5
    cwmrecovery.img.md5
    mmcblk0p2.img.md5
    mmcblk0p3.img.md5
    mmcblk0p5.img.md5
    mmcblk0p6.img.md5
    mmcblk0p7.img.md5
    mmcblk0p9.img.md5

    Download SpectrumPwnageTool.zip Check the MD5 on the file you downloaded against the MD5 posted for the file. The original error message seems to indicate that you got a bad download. (There are free Android, Windows, Linux and Mac MD5 programs all over the web. You paste in the posted MD5, then point the program at the file. It calculates the file's MD5, then lets you know if they match or not.)

    Ahhh.... too funny. After editing my post, now I get the REPLY buttons (and yes, I refreshed the page previously looking for the buttons). Imperfect code by imperfect humans....

    mmcblk0p5.img.md5
    mmcblk0p6.img.md5
    mmcblk0p7.img.md5
    mmcblk0p9.img.md5

    I assume the "success" file is in the phone, but I have no access into the phone since it not boot. Nor would I know (yet) how to check those files.

    Is there a way to repair the OS or am I looking at doing all this all over again (be the third time overall)?

    Thank you.

    There always is - if you know how. (I don't, but probably many of the ladies on Linuxchix would.)

    How about just reflashing the entire ROM? (LG has a tool for that - check on the LG forums.)
