Re: LG Optimus F3
A friend on another forum site, who goes by the 'handle' LOveWerks posted a fairly urgent message about his LG F3 (LG720) phone, and asked for help. He has PM'ed as it seems that no one on the AF has offered any real help. I was just wondering if any of you might have a few suggestions.*
Here is what he posted...
"Well, I've done it now. *The LG F3 (LG720) phone is frozen in the LG screen logo, due to my inadvertent system upgrade, which had been hounding the phone's screen for a couple of weeks. *It's the only phone we have. *I am desperate to find answers; I've been PM'd by people in the know, and I still don't see how I can unbrick a 'soft-bricked' phone without a working USB connection, and a working recovery program - which the phone doesn't have, because my fiancee made it very clear to me not to screw this phone up by adding anything other than Saferoot. *My rant is toward myself; I was a confident Android flasher back in the days of Gingerbread... however, as the operating system gets more modern and more developed, it becomes just like an iPhone. *If there's anyone out there who can walk me through the process, you can PM me here. *Desperately, LW"
"If you don't get any answers on this forum, PM me your e-mail address, and I will foward your issue to some of members of other forums I am on."
LOveWerks replied.... *
"Man, I am so embarrassed. *I used to have no problems bringing root to HTC and Samsung phones, back in the easier times of Gingerbread and Honeycomb; after I tried to get all of the tools to help me (LG Flash tool, driver installation, et al) - the Toshiba laptop crashed after an errant Windows 8.1 update, and my fiancée really hit the roof - our relationship almost ended. *She shipped the phone to LG's repair facility in Ft. Worth, TX, and they re-flashed the phone. *We're both disabled, and I am so upset at the timing of both events; phone, then computer... of course, she blamed me. *All I want is to get Saferoot back, and get CWM
working so the phone's limitations will be eradicated, and I will be able to run the apps
that require root that I (we) paid for. *We're on a fixed-income, and I can't screw this up... ; but, she doesn't want me to root the phone... if someone would be willing to walk me through it - even via chat - I could prove to her that we'd be better off with a phone that has root, and I can get my apps
back, and be able to move most of the data to the 32 gB
micro SD, to kill the bloat problem that is what plagues the LG F3 (LG720) Boost Mobile phone... if you have a heart, and want to help a disabled 52-year-old cat get this phone that we share working with the freedom that root brings. *LW"
If you all have an answer, either post it here or PM me and I will send you the guy's e-mail address.*
