Angry Lg optimus chic e720 dead . help !

my phone , lg e720 , after installing rom manager and i got the permission from it , it asked me to reboot and i did reboot , but end up with a dead phone . i tried to start my phone many many times , did alot of researches trying to restore my phone back but could not help .

Here are my questions:
how to fastboot my phone or restore it?
how to get into dl mode or emergency mode in this case?
i had tried doing many kinds of key combo for emergency mode but still , starts with a Lg logo , ends with a lg logo hanging there smiling at me

The mtd partitions are a bit strange for the LG. Most of those tools mount to different partitions.
You may try emergency restore by pressing VOLUP+VOLDOWN and keep the power-button pressed when power up.
If USB is pluged you will enter emergency mode. This should do the trick.

btw. I am still looking for downgrade to 2.2 :-(
This damn 2.2.1 locked me out! Now google and LG are root on MY device! This sucks.

Okay guys - I answer this by my own...
The solution is really easy - simply use LG tools to flash that device!
I have a link how it works for LG P500 - but this also works for the E720!
First read this and get the flasher software:

LG P500 Firmware Download - LG Cell Phones Blog

I just downgraded 2.2.1 to 2.2. using this method.
The flash-programmer tool is KDZ_FW_UPD. I booted my LG to the 3e-menu when starting running the upgrade because when direcly connecting my pc to emergency-mode the USB-Drivers hang. Maybe this is local problem here - maybe not. It works better from the 3e-menu (that android with the yellow exclamation mark).
You also might try directly from emergency (press vol+ vol- and power - keep the 3 buttons press down and have USB PLUGGED IN).

the kdz firmware itself is from LG site:

The Android 2.2 version (rootable)
http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata/WEBSW/LGE720/ADEUBK/V10b_00/V10B_00.kdz

The new Android 2.2.1 (not rootable yet)
http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata/WEBSW/LGE720/ADEUBK/V10d_00/V10D_00.kdz

So LIFE IS GOOD for me, again and I AM (nor google neither LG) the only root and admin on my devices :-)

- ehm.. yeah - this is GERMAN version ADEUBK - you might download different!
AITABK for example for ITALIAN.

The available versions you find with this link:
http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/csmg/b2c/client/ezlooks_model_list.jsp?model=LGE720

Have fun!
and above all: have back the power! be ROOT
