    I had rooted my phone and it was working fine, but the past few days it's been freezing a lot, so I removed root. After I had done that, my phone came back on like it used to and everything was fine. So then I factory restored it. I know you're not supposed to do that when it's rooted, but I thought I had removed root but I don't know. After that, it won't do anything but go to CMW-based Recover mode. I tried restoring it in hope that it would go back, but it didn't work. It won't do anything but go to Recovery mode. How do I get my phone back to normal?

    You will need to flash the xonia recovery or cot recovery then select fix bootloop

    The only thing I can access is recovery mode, how do you flash something from there?

    Nevermind, I figured it out. Thank you.

    It worked, the Virgin Mobile logo popped up when it came back on, but now it's just stuck at that screen. Perhaps it needs time and I'm being impatient. Should it do that?

    Did you install one of those recoveries mentioned by adamhos? If so they have an option to "fix bootloop." Once you do that you can restore a backup or install a new rom.

    Yes, and I did that and all it would do is get stuck on the Virgin Mobile logo when it turns on.

    Did you restore your backup
    You may need to install a new rom if your backup didn't stick

    Personally I like gingersnap
    However there are a ton of great roms here and they are easy to flash so I recommend trying a few

    Here's a list of roms for the ov. It's a few weeks out of date, but it may give you some ideas:

    Well, I've tried other roms. The outcome is the same.. but now instead of Virgin Mobile coming up and freezing, it turns on shows the LG logo, and then freezes.

    Did you wipe/format everything (cache, dalvik, boot, system, data, sd-ext, sdcard)?

    I sure did. I'm not even sure if my phone is rooted anymore. I don't know. Nothing is working though. I don't know what to do.

    Which recovery are you using?
    Which roms have you tried
    Try wiping everything again
    Boot
    Cache
    System
    Dalvik cache
    Then flash your new rom
    Flash gapps
    Then try the boot loop fix again
    Reboot 2x

    If it freezes again pull the battery and reboot

    And I'm using COT Recovery. I don't remember what Roms I did, I deleted them as soon as I saw that they weren't helping the issue.

    Very strange. Can you type out in detail how you are flashing the new rom? Be as detailed as possible, down to which options you are selecting in the recovery.
