Until you had ROM manager, I was gonna suggest just moving a ROM over to your sd card and flashing that, but since you do have ROM Manager, you should head to the sticky about this.

Wow, you did two no nos at once, rom manager and a privacy factory reset. Explain exactly the steps you took, where are you now,chat can you do, what does the screen look like ect. Without more information we can't really help. Remember we cannot see what you are seeing.

No clue if this will work or not but what the hell right?
Put this on your sdcard
http://db.tt/n9omjfxz (zvd update.zip)

Turn off sig verification in your recovery and try to flash it. If it flashes, you should be able to boot into stock ZVD and should also have the stock recovery installed.

I actually have almost zero experience with rom manager and data reset bricks so I'm just throwing out ideas for ya.

Good luck!

Honestly, the only thing I would try would be to wipe data/factory reset from your recovery. That often will break a recovery boot loop. If you can then get it to boot to android, you MUST install either stock recovery or xionia recovery (http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg...-100-automated-zvj-automated.html#post1381615) But you can only install a recovery from within android.

i was already rooted but i tried this and the only thing that happens is that the phone restarts and acts the same?

Looks to me that your recovery that you have installed doesn't use the edify scripting. If at all possible, go to your mounts and storage and see if you can mount via usb. If you can, you can try putting xionia recovery onto your sdcard and install that instead.

http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg...covery-xionia-clockwork-cwma-v1-2518-6-a.html

Can you run adb shell? You'll need it to install xionia.

Code:
adb shell
$ su
# mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
# flash_image recovery /sdcard/xionia_cwma_12518.6.img

If not, I have no idea how to help you, other than to tell you to look for the instructions to install kp500 and install zv9, then work your way back to either zvd or zvj
