I've had an Optimus V for about 6 months now- Ebay purchase. But it has all kinds of issues with the touch screen and locks up constantly. So I've turned back to my friend Ebay and purchased another Optimus for $15 since the previous owner bricked it. Hard. It's in perfect condition just beautiful but whatever they tried made it completely useless. Good news it does go into download mode as I was preparing to use Odin but to my surprise there are NO Odin files for the Optimus V anywhere.
If you know where I can find them link me or if you know of an alternative method tell me I'd greatly appreciate it.
