    Hello, I got a new phone and decided to give my old one to my wife (LG Optimus V rooted running Amphetamine). She could not access Facebook or Gmail because the phone was still associated with my accounts. So I stupidly hit factory reset. Now the screen only shows ClockworkMod recovery v3.2.0.1. . None of options work will not reboot etc. Is the phone dead(bricked) or can it be fixed. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Jeff

    I just tried removing the battery and rebooting. Nothing happens. The screen has these options although none of them seem to do anything. Reboot system now,apply update from sdcard,wipe cache.install zip,backup and restore,mounts and storage,advanced,power off

    I have downloaded the LG drivers and mobile support tools. The phone is recognized by the LG software and shows in device manager but if I try to open it I get "insert disc into D drive"

    Touch recovery means you can touch the screen to navigate. Button recovery is where you use volume up to move and volume down to select. Did u use the volume buttons?

    Go into Mounts and Storage and click Mount USB storage. Then you should be able to access your SD card. Use the Camera button to select options in recovery.

    For the love of all things good. People. If a person is going through boot loops because of factory reset, 95% of the time, it's fixable simply by flashing COT recovery, flashing a rom, and selecting the 'STOP BOOTLOOP' option and rebooting. done.
