    Use zefie's guide to returning to stock next time you get a chance to sit down next to a computer.

    And dude, please use at least some grammar lol. I imagined a little kid rambling on uncontrollably when I read this.

    I used the guide to return my Optimus to stock so I could sell it as I just bought the Evo Shift. I succesfully got back to the stock rom. The only thing I didnt do is take off the custom recovery.

    When the guy called sprint to activate the phone the data wouldnt work so they had him do a dialer code and after the phone rebooted. Since it rebooted it is now stuck in recovery. I'm able to flash thunderom and use the nandroid to restore to the stock backup but no matter what I do it reboots back into the custom recovery. Did I permanetly brick my Optimus?

    Plan C... goto this Thread, follow the instructions and return the phone to completely stock using the lg tool? (not sure if it'd work, but it might)

    Apparently I fail at the URL... here: http: //forum.androidcentral.com/lg-optimus-s-roms-hacks/52145-how-unbrick-your-phone-using-kdz.html

    If you can get the recovery, why don't you just follow the instructions again to unroot and return to stock, this time, including the step of replacing customer recovery with stock recovery?

    My Phone Goes Blank but Its On. I Cannot Get Into Recovery Is There Anywhere To Unbrick Or Is It Permanently Bricked.

    P.S. I Used z4root To Root It Does That Mean I Had A Custom Recovery Installed?

    No, you don't have a custom recovery and your probably suffering from http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...ine-later.html

    Oh thats weird. How did this happen? Did it just start one day or was there a series of events (or single event) that caused this?

    This warning thread is for people who have a custom recovery and who wipe from the settings menu rather than recovery. Applying a recovery image is a manual process which requires either ADB or a terminal emulator and since you werent sure if you have a custom recovery, i'd guess no.

    From what your saying is you cant even get to recovery (stock or otherwise) or even past the splash screen for that matter which means a computer wont be able to connect to your phone. Without a connection to a computer, theres not much that can be done but warranty it.

    Wow thats a bummer. So you cant get to recovery at all???? Do me a favor and try this

    1) Shut the phone off, heck pull the battery for 30 seconds.
    2) Put battery back in
    3) Press and hold the home button (bottom left). Don't let up till i say
    4) Press and hold the volume down button. don't let up till i say
    5) While still holding the home button and the volume down button, press and hold the power button. Dont just press it but press and hold.
    6) After about 5 seconds, maybe a few more, of holding all 3 buttons down at the same time, are you in recovery??

    Try it, and let go of the buttons as soon as the splash vanishes. Thought it was normal for all devices, but if I don't let go of the buttons, I don't go in to recovery :P I've never tried holding it for a long period of time, so no idea if that could cause an issue :P

    Default Thunderom booting to recovery

    Hi all-

    I have two phones running thunderom 1.5. Both have been running for about two months with no problems.

    Today one of the phones started booting into recovery. I tried just restarting and that did not work. Neither did pulling the battery and restarting.

    Any ideas on what I should try next? I was thinking of updating of 1.6.2 and seeing if that helped.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I would try to figure out why it was happening or do a full wipe before installing 1.6.2 just to make sure some app is going crazy nuts.

    is it possible you went into Menu > Setttings > Privacy > Factory data reset?

    Also as Beezy said, 1.5 is kind of outdated. Might be worth the effort to try the following ...

    1)Put 1.6.2 on your SD card and wipe cache and dalvik (not data) and flash the ROM. See if it boots. if no ....
    2)Wipe cache, dalvik AND data, flash the ROM

    Just talked to my son and it sounds like he tried to do a factory data reset....arggg.

    Going to try to unroot and see if that takes care of it.

    Mike did your PC or laptop see the device how did you get to push the files on the first instructions my phone is in the spot that yours was and all my girlfriend did was the same thing as your son did and I'm stumped I can't get the files on the phone its the second command and it just shoots a error saying device not found?

    I was able to use adb on my pc to push the files to the phone.

    The phone was on the recovery screen the whole time.

    Well… My phone is stuck on the load screen. If I take a brick to Sprint do they freak out or what?
    I really think it’s a soft brick but I just have not the talent to unbrick yet.
