    My Optimus V keeps starting up in the android system recovery. Is there a good tutorial on how to get out of this.

    Sounds like a simple wipe and reflash should solve your problem.

    When the phone comes on it says

    Formatting data
    cache
    factory reset
    rebooting

    then it starts up and i touch the android to get on my phone. It does this every time i turn the phone on. It resets over and over again.

    What caused this problem? Did you do a factory reset? What ROM were you running?

    Turn the phone off, hold down Home, Volume Down, and Power, and let it go when the grey LG logo appears. Does it enter recovery?

    I don't think that applies, he is saying that his phone re-flashes and he can use it, like another user who has a thread going who's ROM re-flashes after each boot. The posts aren't clear though, so I don't know for sure yet.

    This is a very strange issue. You're right, there have been a few people reporting that their phone is in a continuous cycle of looping and factory resetting. However I think that link may be.useful, because if I recall, it fixes most problems involving some sort of bootloop.

    No i did not. I put CyanogenMod 7 on and Xionia CWMA v1.2518.6 Thats it from the sd card. IT just starts up that way each time i turn it on.

    No i have tryed that multiple times to get it in recovery. I will try that link out the one poster said. At least the other rom i had on there was getting into clockwork but not this one.

    Well if pulling the battery and using the button combo doesn't get you in then I'm pretty sure its not there.

    When you shut the phone off it has options. It shows a recovery option to click on. I did that but it just comes back on like before. It just resets it self over again. It says at start up android system recovery then it does the formating
    data cache so on.

    I just keep getting device not found. I have SDK installed and fastboot.

    Try pulling the battery, putting it back and holding down BACK, POWER, and VOLUME DOWN at the same time, until the LG logo pops up and disappears. Then you will enter recovery and you can flash a custom Rom correctly. Sometimes my phone freezes entering recovery from the little pop up menu, so I suggest using the key combo to get in. Report back if it gets in.

    Okay, so you can boot your phone right?

    Let it reflash and get booted, enter the market, and download Terminal Emulator, if you don't already have it on there.

    Follow these instructions:

    Download this http://www.mediafire.com/?bx14hzq5i2pq3ps. It is a ZIP file, inside it is a file called flash_image. Copy it to your SD card (the extracted file, not the archive.)
    Download this file VM670NH_recovery.img to your SD card and rename it r.img


    Code:
    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /system /system
    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    mount -o remount,ro /system /system
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/r.img
    Type those lines into Terminal Emulator one at a time. If you get any errors STOP and report back. That should re-flash your recovery. If it goes well, type "reboot recovery" in terminal emulator and it should hopefully boot into recovery, from there you can flash a ROM.

    It has a symbol on it that's shaped like an actual enter key. Sort of an array going down and then to the left. I use swiftkeyx, and it's right underneath the delete key. It's probably near there on stock and swype.
