Phone Toast? No Emergency Mode or Recovery
Well this phone's certainly been strange..
I accidentally did the ##786 command to reset the phone. Bad idea. The phone kept looping into recovery. I reflashed a ROM, and then another, and same thing. Then I realized there's a certain procedure for getting out of it. Went to put the phone into recovery, and it wouldn't. It would show a black screen with the backlight on. Tried emergency mode once,it got into it, tried the fix, it failed, and now it won't even do emergency mode anymore. LGNPST says "Emergency" when I do the button combo, but the screen is black. Since I had all the numbers out of the phone, I attempted the destructive debrick that wipes 3g. Now I'm seeing this error in LGNPST "The number of Bad block exceeded the limit! Please replace flash." So now I'm thinking the flash memory got hosed. When attempted to start normally, the LG logo shows on screen, and goes no farther. Attempting to go into recovery or emergency mode just results in a black screen.
I have the original V, not the one with the Hitachi screen, if it helps. The phone is close to 5 years old now, and it was acting strange even before I did the ##786.. that's what prompted me to do it. Guessing there's no saving it but curious if any of you have any suggestions.
PS I did try completing the steps for debricking it using the KDZ Method. It completes, but shows error 92, the phone reboots, and it's back to the LG screen.
