    Epic fail! Look at the "I hit the factory reset in the Privacy Menu, now what" section of the post.

    Yeah, it might make your phone show up on your computer. Go to LG's website, for our phone, and hit the download link. Usually you have to do this to root your phone... I'm assuming you're rooted?

    So you probably installed the drivers. Can you boot into your ROM? If so, what ROM are you using?

    No offense but if you can't remember if you're root or not you probably shouldn't have tried messing with your phone like that to begin with.

    Plenty of stickies to assist with your problem, I would suggest reading now since you didn't before.
    sellers86 and terthii like this.

    I agree. At this point, I would just read and try and figure it out. I haven't ever factory reset my phone, so I don't have much experience with this. Sorry.

    I have no clue how to do this

    plug your phone into the usb cable connected to your pc.

    open a command prompt (windows) or shell (linux).
    you need the path set for adb to work already, or you'll have to go to the android sdk's /platform-tools folder where adb lives. again, using adb is covered other places, you'll have to search if you don't know.

    cut-and-paste this line into the command prompt but don't push enter yet:


    Code:
    adb shell flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd8; adb reboot recovery

    ok so i tried the [FIX] ADB method to break factory reset bootloop by wiping /mtd8 method to fix this problem. but i don't really understand how to do this part:

    cut-and-paste this line into the command prompt but don't push enter yet:


    Code:
    adb shell flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd8; adb reboot recovery

    As soon as the silver LG logo diasppears and LGE factory recovery starts, press enter.
    the timing may need to be adjusted on either side of where LG logo fades, and LGE recovery starts to format the two partitions, if adb says 'no device'
    you can paste the line again and again until adb talks to the phone at the right time. you don't have but a few seconds each boot to get the command through to your V.
    once the adb commands punch through, /dev/mtd/mtd8 is cleared so the boot loop should be gone and you will actually boot into recovery.

    Where am i supposed to post this exactly i tried to do it in platform tools and in C:\android-sdk nothing happened

    Its
    C:\android-sdk\platform-tools
    Because that is where adb is

    [EDIT] try android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

    (Only put windows if your using windows)
