    Why would u change the rom? Iho is the leading rom for the OV....
    READ READ READ AND STUDY WHAT U DO OR U WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE.
    IM ASSUMING THAT WHATEVER ROM U FLASHED (you didn't specify it or the recovery you were using so u won't get help til u do) wasn't compatible with the recovery u had.
    Here is with happen:
    The recovery was on my sd card. I told u....DOWNLOAD A RECOVERY FIRST!!!!!! THEN FLASH THE ROM.

    Ill be nice and help... research,research,research, and some more research first... make sure all of the files you plan to flash are compatible with your phone and with each other... from where you're at now as per the post... if you literally have no recovery to access.. download flashimage.GUI and flash recovery that way...... don't forget to thank the dev... I hope this helps...

    What rom, what recovery?

    So long as the phone boots into something, it's probably salvageable.
    If you still have root, andcan get into the rom, you can flash a recovery from inside the rom. Otherwise you will have to hope you can start over with root and install a recovery through ADB shell.

    hello. my name is Jayson and im having a problem with my Sprint samsung epic 4g. its from the Galaxy S line and i got it from a friend. it had a pattern lock and i was trying to unlock it when the Android system recovery. all i know is that the model number is: SPH-D700 I DONT KNOW IF THAT HELPS AT ALL OR NOT.
    heres what i keep seeing and keep running into:

    Android system recovery <3e>

    Enter: OK Key. Select : Vol Up / Vol Down
    reboot system now
    apply update from sdcard
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition



    # MANUAL MODE #

    i tried everything to reset the phone to its factory defaults but nothing happens. i have even tried pressing every button and it seems to have froze with the exception it the 4 front panel buttons: menu, home, go back, and search with nothing happening but the button flashing one time after each press.

    please help me!i dont know what it was using for an os and i dont know what software it uses.
    please, if you can help me to do this i would most appreciate it.

    THANK YOU!

    also im having to use my sprint incogneto as a medium to transfer data.

    First off it might be better to get help in the forum for your phone, since this is a thread about LG Optimus Vs. That said, pressing the volume up and down keys and using the ok key like it said, will select stuff in recovery. The ok key is probably the camera button... unless you have a dedicated ok button. That said... if you pull the battery you can reboot the phone. However if I understood correctly you forgot your password to the lockscreen? If that's the case you can just click the forgot password on the android lockscreen and login using your gmail account on the phon
