    Bricked my phone, was being stupid and mistakenly flashed CWM incorrectly.

    I'm looking for the P505 kdz. I tried this [ROMS] Original LG Firmware list - xda-developers but failed. Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks in advanced.

    All I can do is enter "Emergency mode" and I get a screen that says

    fastboot mode started

    I've tried this [HOWTO] Revive a bricked P500 on fastboot mode (the SHORT way) - xda-developers
    but It hangs at < waiting for device > for me. Haven't managed to fix it either.

    Same problem, can't get into fastboot either. Anyone have success dealing with this? I can't find the KDZ file either.

    I don't know how much it is going to help you, but I posted a link where I hosted the boot and system images on filesonic over at XDA. I know its not a KDZ, but it is a backup from my phoenix.

    With all due respect to Joban. If you have the p506 (ie Thrive), his instructions do NOT work.

    I had the same problem and tried using a kdz according to his instructions and this completely bricked my phone. Upon getting a new Thrive, I decided to try to flash again and got slammed into fast boot mode again.

    The right way to fix a Thrive is as follows:

    [HOWTO] Revive a bricked P500 on fastboot mode (the SHORT way) - xda-developers

    PLEASE NOTE in STEP 5 that you should get the recovery image created by Raenye (here)

    xda-developers - View Single Post - [Source] LGP506 (AT&T LG Thrive GoPhone)

    Use that recovery image and it will allow you to get into Clockworkmod from which you should be able to reboot. I am assuming here that you never had a chance to flash a new rom, if you did flash a new rom you should reflash stock rom from here:

    [ROM] LG Thrive P506 Stock FOTA 2.2.2 v11h - xda-developers

    That should bring you back to stock.

    Original discussion here:

    [Q][HELP][URGENT] Help restoring lg-p506 to stock - xda-developers

    Good luck

    what does the thread title say "Bricked my phone. Need LG Phoenix kdz" so im assuming who comments a Phoenix too! And im pretty sure u can flash a p500 kdz on the Thrive just like the Phoenix there isnt much difference in them! And to get into fastboot just restart the device without holding any keys. I was just trying to help to use my guide but i guess not?

    Sorry I missed the part about already being in emergency mode.

    If you are like me flashing a kdz file sent you from fastboot mode to emergency mode. At this point sadly i think you might be screwed.

    Do NOT flash any other kdz file. I tried that and it made my thrive completely brick.

    I thought I remembered seeing a thread about getting from emergency mode back to fastboot over at XDA, if I can find them I will post them.

    I dont know if this will shed any light on the matter. My phone was showing the same symptoms though I cant remember now if mine was going straight to the yellow screen on boot or if I had to tell it to go there but that screen is what you need sort of. The KDZ files are basically a factory install of your OS and all the accompanying stuff that went with it. Make sure the KDZ file you have for your phone is the proper one and make sure you have the right drivers installed on your PC so you can get the files on the phone correctly. Basically your phone is looking for an OS/BIOS at this point. Im not telling you to do anything or not but the way I look at it your phone isnt working now and you cant get CWM or stock back on the phone I would run the risk and try another KDZ (or the same file again I had issues with mine first time through the files was corrupted). You could always take it to AT&T and just play stupid too and get a new one. But that can be hit or miss they might try to send it in for repair in that case your kind screwed as you have voided the warranty.

    As far as I know there's no KDZ released yet for the Thrive. I had to send mine back to LG for a reflash to stock.

    You can kind the .kdz here: LGPhoenix.kdz - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    Just go into CMW

    Select:Install zip from sd card (KDZ will work same way, I tested it.)

    Select the .kdz file

    Select: Yes

    That kdz is just a rar renamed to kdz. it contains Nintendo DS roms cooking mama 3 and Super Scribblenauts. does anyone have a real Phoenix kdz?
