    Edit: Very few people seem to be getting this to work properly. Until further notice, I am calling this a busted method. I will be working on a better method and hopefully have it out by mid-april.



    Ok, this method assumes that you can still get into Download Mode on the phone. If you can't, you're at full brick status.

    Steps:
    Grab the LG Update Tool from here and install the program :
    LG Mobile Support: Find the Latest Drivers & Product Guides | LG USA

    Put your phone into "Download Mode":
    Pull battery, replace battery, hold down vol up + vol down, then while still holding insert usb cable

    Run the LG Update Tool:
    Start Bar -> All Programs -> LGMobile Support Tool -> LGMobile update

    If the program finds your phone you are in good shape, if not, you will need to trouble shoot your issue (missing driver, loose cable, etc)

    In the LGMobile Support Tool Program click on Customer Support -> Recovery Phone

    Choose Model : LGVS920
    Input your IMEI from your phone or box into the S/N box and then click "check"

    A box will pop up confirming your info. If all goes well a new window will pop up about downloading software. The file is about 800MB. Let it run it's course and you should be back up and running with a factory fresh phone.

    If anyone runs into issues using this, please let me know. I stopped at the downloading step as I do not feel like re-doing all my system settings for a 5th time.

    My phone isn't bricked, but I wanted to "recover" it back to stock and start over with root. However, whenver I try to connect using downloader mode, the phone isn't seen as connected by the LG software. When I connect it normally (powered on without downloader mode), the LG software finds it so I select "Recovery Phone", it goes through the paces and says that my phone has the current software, no update necessary, never goes to download. Any suggestions on how to force a recovery?

    If you must force it, then I suggest the method in this thread:

    Many people have gotten it to work, it just sometimes takes a few tries.

    Thanks, Neph. I've read the posts in the thread you linked to and just might give it a try later on. But right now, I've found that using LG Thrill (G) in WiFi Tether seems to work better for my laptop tether. Appreciate all your help so far.

    Why couldn't you use this method for returning to stock?

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    is your phone bootlooping? or bricked? what is the problem exactly?

    glad to hear you got it fixed.

    I'm not sure what you used rom manager for but you shouldn't need it for anything with our phone. It may work to boot into recovery but I don't know. I use rom toolbox pro to boot into recovery and it works perfect.

    after the ota update yesterday my phone will only boot into cwm recovery and i think it's because i deleted bloatware off my phone. not sure what to do, any help would be appreciated.

    you need the bootloop fix zip.

    http://www.joelperryproductions.com/...download-shop/

    Go there and scroll down to tools and download the cwm bootloop fix file. Or use this link http://joelperryproductions.com/spec...otloop_fix.zip

    Youll need to get that file onto your sd card. Once in CWM just install the zip and then reboot

    That should fix your issue. If not then I would try flashing back to v4 stock.

    I have a boot loop too , but mine was caused by my stupidity. I flashed the wrong nv file to my spectrum vs920 verizon, v6 .I've tried everything to fix the problem.....I've done the kp500 tool, and everything. its rooted with clockwork mod on it but im not sure how to even get to clock work. the worst is yet to come.....under lg restore tool it reads as the other phone as far as the firmware goes. I'm totally lost. the phone boots up into the activation screen for about 3 to 4 seconds...then touch screen becomes unresponsive and then it reboots. I'll try anything. anybody got any ideas.

    If you did the KP500 tool then you removed CWM in the process. You could try a data reset, but I doubt even that would work at this point. If you can get back into download mode, you could try to flash the correct cab file again as that is probably your only hope at this point.

    Hey Guys, I need help. I was looking through the Forum for some advice on what to do. Here is the thing, I have an LG Doubleplay from Tmobile, I am past the warranty and the phone keeps restarting every time it comes on. Now I have another one for my wife that seems to have issues with calling, it only lets us use the wifi and not the phone service itself. I am a bit techie so Id rather see if I can fix it myself with your recommendations. Thanks guys. what I was thinking was that I might have to Flash the phone somehow, so if you have a recommendation on what to use, that would be great.
