This is mostly an FYI that if you run into this the chances are slim and none to recover. So my daughter's optimus died this weekend. No real problems leading up to this. But she hands me the phone and it won't boot. I see the LG boot screen then all four buttons flash continuously. I can get it into emergency mode but the LG update tool can't recover it. I looked at the log and when it reads info from the phone everything is scrambled. So after a few hours of tinkering I called it dead. I've called T-mobile and they're replacing the phone, however if anyone thinks they have a solution I'm open to suggestion.
