    Please anyone,
    Is there anything I can try. I'm desperate now. I will get a custom ROM, kernel, etc just to get my phone on and working. Last time I flashed a ROM iI had no connection whatsoever. No phone number, carrier, or signal was ever available. So I have to be careful with the ROM selection. Please? Any suggestions are welcome.

    OK, since you have a working recovery for your device, you need to load a custom ROM. Try these in order:

    ZVJ ROM (Dante)

    ZVD (Quatt)

    One or the other will get signal and such. That will help determine your baseband. Note that you don't need to flash GApps on Dante, but you will need to do so on Quatt to get access to the Play store.

    Do that, and let us know what happens.

    Note: You can load them onto your SD card from Recovery under "Mounts." Simply press "Mount USB Storage" while your phone is plugged in and it SHOULD pop up as a drive.

    DanteRom won't install on my phone. I got the LG Optimus S driver software installed but then when I went to install DanteRom from TWRP it said install successful even without the md5 file. I tried to wipe cache/dalvik (successful) and hit reboot after I hit the back menu and it loaded right back into TWRP. Is there anither recovery I could try? Maybe this one is not compatible with my phone? I cant install gapps on Quatt so i didnt attempt it.

    You can try this http://db.tt/xnGZbJHs.

    It is xionia, just tucked it into a flashable version.

    Interesting. I wonder if you're stuck in a recovery boot loop. Try COT (NOTE: I couldn't find a forum post, and I hope Drew isn't mad. Remember: You are responsible for what you do to your device). and look under "advanced" for "fix recovery boot loop" and see if that helps. It's one of the best recoveries out there, and should work on your device.

    It still won't install. Nothing is installing properly on TWRP because it will say "successful" on install but then when I go to reboot it, it just goes right back into recovery, as did CWM. Are there certain settings or precautions/guidlines I should use/follow before trying to install it on TWRP?

    What is COT and how do I flash it through TWRP? I'm not sure but I think TWRP just made flashing a recovery/ROM worse and/or harder.

    You have to flash a recovery through ADB.

    If you have your custom recovery still they're gonna know it's rooted most likely.

    I assume since you said you were about to go to sprint, this is going to come to late. The truth is, unless sprint has changed thier policy recently, it is not against policy to root thier devices. It is frowned apon but they will work on them. The service techs are not dummies and most likely root themselves (the ones I know do LOL). Just be honest but not forthcoming if you catch my drift. Tell them what's wrong. Hope it goes/went well and let us know!

    even if they charge you to fix it it's gotta be cheaper than buying a new phone.

    At sprint, if you take it into service if you dont have the extended warrenty the worst case is $35 for the repair or a refurb. Heck, if they can fix on site it is usually free.

    Thank you to everyone for all the responses! I have made sure to thankeveryone and the repair will be free or I can just get a free new one because of my mom's insurance. Thank you and have a nice night everyone!

    Okay nevermind. I went to the Sprint store and they aren't allowed to touch rooted phones anymore. The guy showed me how to do it and he said it would surely work, but it didn't. Here's the link
