    I screwed up in recovery while trying to install Gingerbread. My phone is wiped clean, and I'm stuck at Fastboot Mode.

    I tried following the directions here, but it won't recognize that my phone is plugged in (see here).

    Is there any way I can fix this, or should I give up on this phone?

    I was following this guide, so I did all the stuff under step 4. I guess I screwed up somewhere along the line, though.

    I've fixed it! For anybody having the same problem, what I did was as follows --

    Shut down the phone
    Once it's off, hold down the power button + the "volume down" button + the home button. Let go once you see the LG logo flash on the screen.
    This should boot you into recovery. From there, mount your USB storage.
    Place the stock Optimus V rom (which you can find here) onto the SD card
    Install from SD card
    Scream "Yes!" out loud because your phone has been broken for two days.

    What did you do to get to this place? We might be able to help you if you tell us what you did, otherwise its a stab in the dark at best.

    And what exactly is it doing?
    If it's not even starting to come on, then the phone is dead. If it is starting at least some, then we need to know exactly how far it gets and what you did.
