    I'd strongly recommend not returning it to AT&T or to LG as any warranty will be instantly useless. Can you be more specific about where the loop initiates? Is this when you're attempting to boot into the bootloader or into recovery or is it when trying to start up regularly or both?

    ok so did some test and after following direction from xda >>Having root access from recovery is a must to solve problems if you run into them (run "/system/lib/cf3d_uninstall.sh" as root to remove the driver and restore the old one)

    1. boot into jb recovery mode
    2. run "adb devices" - to make sure the phone drivers are ok (should output a long hex string and "device")
    3. run "adb shell" from command prompt
    4. in shell prompt "sh system/lib"
    5. still in shell "sh /cf3d_uninstall.sh"
    .....................................................................


    well i figure it out lol ...

    command adb devices

    /system/lib/cf3d_uninstall.sh

    and it booted ..

    did this 50 times not sure what i did but its unbricked lol hope no1 else runs into this ...do not download for optimus g pro

    I can't find this firmware you speak of. I'm totally bricked, can get to homescreen after a factory reset from recovery, but then it reboots after 1 minute into a bootloop. A link would keep me from chucking my phone at my tv screen.

    I have a similar problem that you have, but caused the probably using poor judgement. I was deleting system apps and bloatware, but I went too far and noticed I could not get my settings anymore for my phone. I did backups of all the apps on titanium back up on my SD card, but don't know how to get it back on to the phone when it will not even boot up. Where did you get the following information? Can I do the same thing?
