yes, ive tried 2 different ones with the same results, so i formatted them both and tried again and havent had much of a problem with it yet, if i power the phone off and then back on i still get stuck at the LG logo for a little while but with persistence and alot of battery pulling it boots back into the phone.

Earlier this week I downgraded to V8, went to V9, then to VC. Had NRom and GB working fine. Going between the two a couple times this week. I had found a fix to my main issue with GB (Rotary behind calls) so I formatted my SD Card, rebooted my phone, and I am stuck at the LG Splash. So everything was working, after this restart it fails to start up with or without the SD card. I attempted using this but when trying to go into E-Mode I do not get the "Emergency Mode' screen in red letters as I should. I am unsure what needs to be done...
I was able to get into E-Mode, but when updating it doesn't continue. This is the log from the updater.

Do you think this would work on an Optimus V? (I can get into custom recovery and adb, but I can't mount /system)
Would I need a different cab file, and if so, any ideas where I might find it?
Edit: Yes, it requires a different cab file that can be downloaded from LG. But as of this writing, the cab file for the Optimus V on LG's site does not work correctly for this flashing method.

Ok, I'm really stupid, but i decided to flash a ROM (CM7) without doing a factory reset (this was an accident) . I tried this unbrick method a bunch of times, because it worked the LAST time i was stuck at the LG logo indefinitely, to no avail. BUT... I did it once more, this time using the V9 cab, and it went through and my phone works again. So, if at first you don't succeed, try to use v9 and it might work. But more importantly, don't be stupid like like me, please wipe factory before flashing a rom.

I was stuck at the LG boot screen and couldn't boot to recovery. Tried this method about 20 times and it failed at 99% every time. I finally tried the V9 cab and Version: LS670ZV9_20. Success! Now the phone boots every time and I get to recovery. Working on upgrading & rooting again now.

i still had no luck with this method of unbricking so after a trip to the sprint store i now have a fully functional phone that i can turn off and back on without any problems. unfortunately its not my original phone the store rep tried a few tricks of his own with no change in outcome so he did a full equipment swap for a brand new one.

Which problem are you currently having? No service or not being able to get KP500 to complete?
- 02-26-2011, 08:16 AM #88
His issue is not being able to get KP500 to complete. I've never had any issues with KP500 so I figured I'd send him along to the only KP500 thread I remembered seeing.
Whoops, my bad. Sorry!

Hey just thought I'd post my find, even if it's kind of un-specific. Honestly I'm not sure how or why it worked.
I've been going back and forth between this thread and another thread on the same topic, the theory on the other being that if you plug it in enough without the battery, it will eventually give you the "Insert Battery" prompt, which magically un-bricks it. I didn't have any luck with that, so I tried here. I tried multiple times with the VC update, and then tried the V9 update instead, like pomeray suggested, and didn't SEEM to have any luck with that either. However, once the V9 update failed, I disconnected my Optimus from the PC and plugged it into my wall charger (all without the battery inserted) and finally got the "Insert Battery" prompt! I did so, and voila! Un-bricked. Not sure what kind of black magic i stumbled upon here, or if it can be repeated, but that's what worked for me.
Granted, I'm letting it charge up right now, and haven't tried to shut it off or get into recovery, so I'm not certain just HOW fixed it is.
Update: Shut phone off and attempted to boot into recovery - re-bricked.
Update: I've managed to brick and un-brick my phone 4 times now this way. It seems to only remain unbricked until I reboot. Any ideas on what I need to do? My end goal is to have the latest baseband version so that I can flash the latest version of thundeROM.

Much thanks to all of you good people. I finally got UnBricked!
I had installed VC through the LG updater. Installed Thunderom 1.7.0. Life was good. Then I turned the phone off, and BAM. LG brick. My situation was compounded by the fact that even with my wife to help press buttons, I could NOT get the Emergency Mode screen to turn on. It just sat there with a blank screen. With the hard buttons at the bottom lighting up though, I figured What the hell... Using the VC wad wouldn't work for me. After getting to 99% it would error out and no boot. I tried the V9 and it errored out again at 99% only this time, my phone went into the 'Battery Required' Screen. I put the battery in and it went to the charging screen. Figuring What the hell, I tried to boot into recovery. Success! Flashed to Stock Rom and recovery just to be safe and upgraded to V9. So far so good. I've reboot and Shutdown completely with no ill effects.
The big thing for me was that even though the 'E-mode' screen wasn't on, I was still able to get the k500 to see the 'E-mode' function.

First I want to thank all the people working on making this phone better than sprint ever will.
Second, I wanted to confirm what lowwang posted. Exact same thing happened to my brothers phone. Followed the directions except I did what lowwang posted. In recovery I wiped data and caches and went straight to Thunderom 1.6.2. Everything seems to be working fine again.

A few notes...
I got a brick here too. Experiencing the same black screen issues as others are reporting. Don't see nor can I get into a visible E-Mode, just a blank screen and the bottom buttoms illuminated.
I've recovered this phone twice while messing with it. Here's a few of my observations:
1. Remove the SD card!
2. If the LG updater tool keeps throwing up on you at 4%, try removing the battery, disconnecting the USB, then reconnect the USB and press retry at the same time. (do not power up the phone) If the updater gets past 4% after doing this, then reinsert the battery. It successfully started uploading the firmware for me afterwards
3. If pushing the ZVC firmware still results in a brick, downgrade back to ZV9. This unbricked for me. However, I removed thunderc and restored the stock recovery ROM, then tried to upgrade to ZVC. Bricked again!
If anyone's got links for how to thoroughly remove ThundeROM and Thunderc and upgrade to ZVC, i'dappreciate it!

I'm starting without the battery in; is that why it's puking on me at 4%? I've tried pushing V9 and VC and they both stop at 4%. Do you remember how you plugged it back in? Were you in e-mode or just normal? With or without the battery?
I feel like I'm SO CLOSE to unbricking this beast. Thanks for your help.

It kind of reminds me of unbricking a Linksys WRT54G after a bad frimware upgrade. When you first plug the router in, it starts a TFTP server for a few seconds on bootup and, if you can catch it during that time, it will accept firmware and reboot. Same with this. Plug it in and try to catch it with the retry before it starts dropping and bringing back up the USB. For me, no crazy vulcan neck pinch button pressing was necessary, just plugged in USB and pressed retry. If it fails, just try it again.
The upgrade from ZV9 to ZVC is what caused my brick. Pushing back to ZV9 worked for me. The CAB i used came from http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata..._20.P60671.cab. Use Beezy's steps, just use my filename and answer LS670ZV9 instead of LS670ZVC for step 9.
Let me know if that helps.

I'm going to try this later if I can get the steps right and in order. I'd just bring it back to Sprint and start over new, but my car is busted. Yeah, it's been that kind of week. Any tips on the best method to get V9 loaded? Just follow Beezy's steps with the new alteration and new .cab?
