    I have the Virgin Mobile LG Optimus Slider. I did a wipe/data factory reset. Where can I get the stock rom of which you speak? The reason I was re-flashing was because my sd-card died, and it took my nandroid with it.
    Here is the thread that contains the stock rom: [ROM]Stock, untouched, unrooted, Slider ROM

    So.... I take it that there is still no fix for this?
    I was going to give my slider to my friend, seeing as how I bought the Motorola Triumph.
    But now I am unable to give it to him :-/

    I must note that I have attempted to fix this phone using multiple methods...
    Primarily the KDZ method that is used to update almost EVERY OTHER LG PHONE BESIDES THIS ONE >.<

    I downloaded the KDZ file here:
    http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata..._03.P61007.cab

    This is the CAB that contains the firmware that comes preloaded on the VM701...
    Are there any programmers out there that might be able to make use of this?
    And maybe find a way to unbrick the VM701s that are out there lol

    WARNING

    If you have installed a custom recovery, DO NOT FACTORY RESET YOUR PHONE THROUGH MENU>SETTINGS>PRIVACY>FACTORY RESET.

    The above action will give you a $200 paperweight. There is no fix for it at this time.

    WARNING


    I've made a zip file that i am not confident at all will fix the issue and not willing to do this to my GF's phone just to test

    - DOWNLOAD THIS FILE
    - Place the file on the root of your SD card. I dont care if you put your sd card in another phone, mount that phone to the PC, drag it over, then put the SD back into the slider. I dont care if you use a microsd to usb adapter. Basically, just get the zip onto the root of an SD card, then get that SD card into your slider
    - Boot into custom recovery
    - Flash the zip

    This is a test, i make no promises and it comes with no warranty although it should go without saying that, how much worse could it get for your phone. If you're testing this, you're already SOL.
    The zip didnt work =/

    After months of searching I found a way to recover my phone. I went here
    Break from recovery boot loop!! (Slider too) - Android Area51

    you have to register to get the file needed and you have to install AreaRomQ 1.4 then install the zip and reboot

    Is there a solution for this if you cannot access the cwm recovery? All I am able to do is access the emergency mode.

    I had the lg optimus q for straight talk with a similar problem. After I factory reset the phone through settings, my phone would bootloop into recovery. I found a fix by flashing a zip file containing stock recovery. The phone booted normally after that, but I had to re-flash CWM recovery through terminal emulator. The Lg optimus slider is very similar to the optimus q, so I assuming theres a similar fix somewhere out there. Try this link:

    I have the same problem with my son's old phone, and would like to drop a whole KDZ on it, but I can't figure out how, as SU isn't working and I guess Clockwork whacked out Recovery.

    Does anyone know how to drop maybe via KDZ on this phone?

    It is currently a paper-weight!

    I have been searching for weeks!
