LG Update failed: Now I cannot even power on my Optimus T
Hi. I'm a noob. And what makes that worse? I'm a stupid noob knee-deep in some... you know what.
Anyways, my problem:
I have a 3-month-old LG Optimus T, rooted and running a custom Android 2.3 ROM. I heard that the 2.3 update was available from LG and I wanted to try it. BAD IDEA.
Despite the warnings against updating a rooted phone, I did it anyways out of stupidity. It was also probably because I forgot to disable the modem driver or it may have been the battery being too low.
The update was going fine until the it was actually installing. I got a yellow screen and the words "Emergency Mode". Naturally, I followed the on-screen instructions: take the battery out, redo the update. I did exactly that but this time, the phone wasn't recognized by my computer. (could it be a missing driver?)
The phone refused to turn on after taking the battery out for a few minutes and wouldn't even start when I tried a factory reset (volume down + back + power).
Right now I'm trying to charge my phone, but I don't know if I'm doing it in vein or not. (no indicators.)
As far as I know, it's been bricked.Now all my phone is good for is a paper weight probably with no hope of recovering the OS.
This case is unique to me in that I could not even get into a bootloader, let alone a single button's light like others that had the same problem could. I'l try starting up after a while..
UPDATE: I tried restarting after trying to charge but still no response whatsoever. Prognosis: bad.
Am I doomed?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
