    I'm going to hazard a guess and say you used Rom Manager?

    Well, I downloaded it then it seemed to risky. Therefore I never actually downloaded any roms or used them. Last night while I was on the computer my phone ramdomly shut off and went into recovery, I thought nothing of it until this morning when I could get it out

    I backed up my ROM, wouldn't that have installed it? Unless it installed with my root possibly?

    No, you have to install a custom recovery yourself. And you couldn't have made a nandroid backup without a custom recovery.

    Well, that says it then. Before I backed-up my rom I installed it.

    Yeah, but from where? Did you dl it from here, another site, or did you let Rom Manager do it?

    In any case, you probably need a different recovery. I recommend this one: [RECOVERY] Cannibal Open Touch v1.2 (latest update: 06/24/2012)

    Then you can flash a new rom.

    I let rom manager do it.

    But how do I select options on the recovery mode when its not working for me? I click the camera button and it just blinks then hovers over reboot system now.

    Ok, as you know now, rom manager is bad news. Does pressing the menu button select anything or is it not doing anything?

    Ok...do you know how to use adb? Does your computer recognize your phone when you plug it in via usb?

    I'm sorry to tell you but this probably isn't going to be a quick and easy fix...

    it recognizes it when I turn it off and allow it to charge, and never used adb before.

    I dont care if its long and hard I need this fixed before I get stuck in this city.

    Actually, no its not recognising it now. I thought it was, I can hear the sound though when I'm turning it on

    Ugh...

    Ok, so, you can't boot into your rom at all, and the recovery won't let you select anything.

    One sec, let me check out some links. I've never bricked my phone like this so I'm kinda leading you by what info I've picked up. Brb...

    Thank you so much.

    Why is mine so bad though? I don't understand. I installed rom manager and then last night my phone restarted at random.

    Idk if this helps but, the button did work once and it just rebooted it. but that was hours ago

    I tried this tutorial:

    [HOW-TO]Un-Brick Your Lg Optimus S

    But there must be a language problem because when I get to the last part I get some errors about missing pictures and all I see is tons of ????'s

    Rom Manager just does all kinds of bad voodoo to our phones bc they aren't supported. You're lucky you can get to recovery at all, even though it doesn't work.

    Alright, this thread you posted in: [HOW-TO]Un-Brick Your Lg Optimus S

    You were on the right track. To get into emergency mode, turn the phone off completely. Then hold the button combo mentioned in the post (if that combo doesn't work it's something like home+ both volume buttons+ camera+ power, you may need a helper monkey to help you press them all). When you do it right the phone will power on to a screen saying something about emergency mode

    This method is the only one I know of that will work when you can't access recovery or android. Try everything you can to get your computer to recognize your phone. If you do, it can be fixed. You may need to install the drivers for our phone onto your computer.

    Right, I know your buttons aren't working in regular recovery, but emergency mode is different.

    No, it's not that. I posted something different.

    I'm getting question marks when I try using the program.

    Let me take a screenshot..
