So you pulled the battery, put it back in, and held both volume buttons while powering the phone back on and it won't boot in to recovery?

Correct i tried it... loop begins. When plugged into the computer the same thing happens. Not recognized by the computer. Tried charging it, and the loop begins again. I'm going insane

with the phone turned off, press and hold the vol up and down buttons at the same time, and then plug the phone into a computers usb port.. does that bring up a screen saying the phone is downloading???

If that works, then, there's a tread on here about how to unbrick this phone.. super easy to do, as long as you can get to the screen I"m talking about.

What causes the android to LG logo boot loop, with phones with cwm.

Is it caused by factory reseting from the settings menu.
