I successfully rooted my Slider, installed the BobZhome recovery tool, did a backup, and everything was fine.

Then I installed the Mobster rom, and it said it successfully installed and so I rebooted the phone.

Now the phone won't turn on. I finally got LGMobile Support Tools to recognize it although the SD card is not being recognized on my pc.

Any help would be great appreciated!

EDIT: After pulling the battery, I was able to get into Recovery. Just because I'm a glutton for punishment, I tried installed the Mobster rom again, and again, after waiting almost 20 minutes, phone still never came on, couldn't restart it or anything.

So back into Recovery and I just restored the original ROM to the phone and all is fine.

I followed all the steps, so not sure why I'm having so much trouble flashing the Mobster rom.

Only wipe cache and dalvik cache when installing a custom ROM on this phone.

Thanks very much, I really appreciate the reply. I couldn't find any specific instructions for flashing this particular phone and so the instructions I found had you format everything but the card. So I will definitely just wipe cache & dalvik cache only this time.

When using other ROM's you'll need to wipe data/factory reset FROM RECOVERY if you do it from the settings you will brick your phone
