Unhappy LG Thrill 4G Stuck at LG logo screen

Hi, I am new to this stuff and committed the cardinal sin. No viable back up. I recently rooted this phone and was exploring Busy Box and Rom Manager. Now I believe what I did next was clicked on a default setting in Rom Manager (fix permissions) the screen flashed and code began filling the screen. I stopped this, rebooted. My icons had shrunk and there was zero text. When I tried the hard reset it became stuck at the LG screen.

I have no experience with rooting phones or the programs in question but it sounds like you are going to have to reset to factory defaults. I had to do this the other day due to the phone being stuck at the AT&T Rethink Possible screen. It sucked to lose data but at least the reset and recovery was simple enough.

If you can't find any other recovery method, the steps below should get the phone functional again, although you will lose data.

This is a pretty desperate step you can try.

Turn the power off. If your Android device is locked with password, pull
the battery out and reinsert it
Hold the Volume Down button
And then, Press and hold the Power button until you feel the device
pulse vibrate.
Quickly release the Power button but continue to hold down the
Volume Down button until the Recovery Mode screen appears.
Use the Volume keys to scroll up or down and highlight Yes.
Press the Menu key.
The device will master reset.

Well it seems I have really screwed the pooch on this one. No problems pulling up Android system recovery <3e>, however as it attempts to reboot the following command lines appear: E:Can't mount CACHE:recovery/command E:Can't mount CACHE: recovery/log E:Can't open CACHE:recovery/log.

It doesn't sound good. A little bit of hope though, over at XDA it sounds like a couple folks were able to recover: [Q] E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command - xda-developers Note it is a different phone so don't use the linked roms but the steps might still work with the proper ROM.

Take the LG Optimus 3D, put it on AT&T's network, and what do you have? The LG Thrill 4G. Inside the Thrill 4G is identical to the Optimus 3D... and that's a great thing. With both 3D recording of pictures and videos and the ability to ... Read More
