    Hi guys!

    I have a problem with my Phone. a few days ago I received an software update and I downloaded+installed it right away. when he rebooted during the install it went right away to the recovery. I couldn't get him out of it so i decided to download the factory rom that already was on my phone and flash that one but that didn't change at all. I just laid my phone down for a day because I was heading to work with my amazingly slow Galaxy txt as backup, I met a dead phone when coming home again. It would not turn on nor power up. When I hook it up to my usb power adapter the menu and back touch buttons flash quickly for a minute or so. It really does nothing else then that. When I Hook it up to my Macbook by usb it flashes but each flash will take about 2-3 seconds. this goes on for like 5 minutes.

    What I tried:

    Put battery out, press power button ( or every possible combination with the other hardware keys) and re-insert the battery
    Put charger in, battery out, charger out, battery in, charger in,
    let it charge for 2 days
    took everything (sd-card sim-card and battery) out for about 10 hours

    Could someone help me out? It's a hell of a phone. I really need it so before I ship it back does anyone have a tip which can lead me to fixing my phone again?

    I did notice something right now:

    when it's hooked up to the usb and it has stopped blinking, When I press and hold ( Volume up, Home and Power button) for a few seconds, the menu and back key lit up and stay lit. I do not know for how long. But i Guess this means that it isn't hard bricked right?

    No one who can help me? I should have thought a second time when purchasing this phone. So little support like roms and updates. but oh well, was a good phone.

    come on, is there really nobody to help me out? I hope the problem is unable to fix so I can trade it in for a new phone. Think it's gonna be the Galaxy S IV

    I actually don't know, It was a OTA update i believe about 2 weeks back now. An software update from LG themself.

    Press power and volume down while plugging in usb or charger. This will take you to factory hard reset mode. Press power 3 times to accept,dont worry about prompts,it will take you too recovery where you can do a restore.
