Phone stuck in recovery mode
A friend of mine recently gave me his old Optimus S after upgrading to a newer phone, and the device is stuck in recovery mode, displaying "ClockworkMod Recovery v126.96.36.199" along the top, followed by a number of selectable options. After looking around the internet, I attempted to install a working ROM from an SD card, but when I reboot it, it returns to the recovery screen. What can I do to fix this?

Re: Phone stuck in recovery mode
Your friend installed incompatible software on the phone, probably used ROM Mangler to install the wrong recovery. Check out the ROM Manager and Unbrick threads in the Rooting, ROMs and Hacks section.
