    if all fails, power the phone down, hold volume down and power button until it boots to a white screen which is the bootloader. use your volume button to scroll down to factory reset and hit the power button

    This will wipe your data. If you're rooted, try reflashing the rom without wiping data. That might do it.

    No, I know and agree with you. I just didn't want to come back to the forums all surprised and angry: "Hey, all my apps are gone! What did you do to it/me?" (not saying you would, just saying it to be safe).

    Back in the Optimus S forums, simply installing ROM Mangler on the optimus would result in a temp brick on reboot, and if you were unfortunate enough to press the "Flash Clockworkmod Recovery" button, you'd pretty much get a perma-brick. Despite having the top sticky in block capital letters warning people against doing this, we got more than 1 thread per month with people with one post raging against the world (and sfhub, who made the root application) for bricking their device. Than they would disappear after waiting 15 seconds for an answer, and never come back to check the thread they started again.
