    aha!
    since it's an ext4 filesystem instead of mtd, flash_eraseall isn't required.
    try this instead.
    Code:
    adb shell cat /dev/zero > dev/block/mmcblk0p5
    adb reboot recovery
    and, vector84an makes a good point, it's hard to get support for one device in the home forum of another.
    Lucky I'm stubborn!

    The system cannot find the path specified.

    no /dev/zero
    try yet another method.
    Code:
    adb shell ls /sbin/
    so I can see what the recovery uses to format the mmcblk partitions.

    is it still bootlooping?
    other than clearing the persist partition, since the misc partition doesn't exist on your device, I'm out of information.
    Sorry

  9. jezzie bumatay's Avatar
    yup still looping... should i give up?

    don't give up, but you'll have to pester the devs who know what's going on with your device.
    without one of those in-hand to test things on, I can't help any more that what I've suggested already.
    Trying to format any other partitions could brick you permanently without knowing what's being done internally with them.
    or, well, you could clear the cache partition safely to test.
    Code:
    adb shell busybox mke2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p6
    adb reboot recovery
    a quick search implies the mpt partition may have LG crud in it too, let those devs know, they can advise whether it's safe to wipe that partition or not.
    it's located at /dev/block/mmcblk0p21

    Just a warning, don't use rom manager in the future to flash anything. It is not and will never be compatible with the v or s, in fact you got away lucky, it completely bricks the s.
