    Two things:

    1. Don't do ##786# if you are running LegoRom! I did this today and totally messed my phone up. It went through a crazy loop of failed processes, reboots, recovery boot loop, etc. Thankfully I am now an expert at force flashing so I was able to repair things by forcing V9 through KP500 and letting it do the hands free activation and PRL update. I thought LegoRom was safe because I was running CWM Xionia recovery. It is not.

    2. junkshow, please post again to confirm that you are able to power down normally and power up without the phone getting stuck at the LG logo. Had you been stuck at the LG logo before when you tried to run VC? The reason I ask is because I went through the same steps as you and was not able to avoid the LG logo sticking problem. Can you move this discussion to the potential fix thread?:

    Were you running either the stock recovery or the CWM recovery when you did this? As mentioned in the other thread, ##786# WILL NOT work properly if you are using the thunderc recovery. Other than that, there's no reason I don't think that Lego ROM shouldn't work. It's based on the LG firmware/software, so it should be fine.

    CWM recovery. I still can't figure out what happened. It looks like clearing out the data somehow corrupted the application files, because everything was force closing (phone application, google framework, keyboard) while it attempted to run the setup wizard.

    Thankfully the restoration process was pretty painless because I had a good nandroid backup.

    Works fine here on TR 1.7. PRL and Profile update fine now. Did not fix my power down issue though (rebooting normally or rebooting into recovery mode work fine as long as done though the Quickboot options or CM7 reboot options, so not a biggie).

    From what has been posted before, the "Baseband" version is just a hard-coded string in the ROM. It isn't dynamically read from the radio to determine the version. Thus even if your baseband in the phone status says VC, it may or may not be VC, it just means your ROM was built off one that was bundled with VC.
    Well, I updated to VC via the LG updater, so unless something got screwed up during the update, I'm not sure what to do? I updated using the instructions provided by Robchaos in his thread.

    I dunno. Maybe I'll try it again...

    If you updated to VC (and didn't revert later), then you have the VC radio.

    Yes, cold boot works completely normally. Sorry the steps didn't work for you, I really thought accepting the OTA first might be the key. As requested, further discussion has been moved to the LG Logo Hang Fix Thread.

    Yep. According to LG Update, I do have the VC radio and it won't let me update. Unless of course, I force it back to V9...

    So, I wonder why I can't OTA update my PRL or profile then?

    You probably have some NVRAM problem/corruption related to the login profiles.

    You can try what was discussed here:

    It fixed the problem for others.

    I tried punching in ##786# and it asked me for a service code. Any idea what that might be?

    It's your MSL. Call Sprint and they will generally provide it.

    You can try doing a ##786# reset (which will erase data/cache as well as reset NVRAM data) You will obviously lose your data, so backup what you need.

    Only do this if you have the stock LG recovery or Zefie's recovery. The other custom recoveries might brick your phone.

    There's some chance that your problem is with software/radio mismatches, which would mean even after resetting NVRAM, you still can't do HFA, Update PRL, and Update Profile. In that ase, you might be left with a phone that cannot get data set up, until you correct the software issue.
    this worked for me, just started up an online chat with a sprint tech. told them i couldn't update my prl or profile. they tried something on their end first which didn't work and asked me if i was ok with doing a hard reset. Of course i am! they then gave me my msl which i used to do the ##786# reset. did a restore from recovery then updated my profile (had to turn off roaming to connect to sprint signal first). now im back to perfect working order. thanks.
