Cool Bricked it! Deleted all apps, no USB debugging

LG Optimus M (MS690)

Well I rooted it, then I was getting rid of some apps that came with the phone and I think I may have accidentally deleted everything in the /apps folder. I know for sure LGHome or whatever is gone. I can't get into the settings menu.

Phone hangs at "Android" loading screen.

I tried to do a factory reset (big mistake because it turned off USB debugging) but the setup app crashes. I can't do a google search. "Connection problem ! Google search. [speak again] [cancel]."

So I've been screwing around with it all night. I downloaded Android SDK, but I get "device not found" when I try adb shell.

I tried "recovery phone" through the LG updater but I got the error, "Updating is not possible any longer due to a fatal error while the LG Mobile Phone Software Update." Exactly like you see it there, in broken English.

I do have all the original apps that I deleted on my SD card in a folder. My PC recognizes the phone, and I can browse the SD card when the phone is plugged in to the PC.

I wanted to try to push files back to where they were supposed to be but I get the device not found error.

If I try to turn the phone on, it hangs at "Android" loading screen. If I want to be able to connect to the PC, I have to do a factory reset via Home, Vol-, and Power.

A few interesting things that did happen were at one point, I don't remember how, I got into Wifi settings. I tried connecting to a network and was asked for a password but every time I tried to connect, the wifi would reset itself. Another time the camera worked.

Any suggestions?

With the Gingerbreak, you need to have USB Debugging enabled, and with the state my phone is in, it is not possible to do this as far as I know.

celebrated too soon... i can't get my wifi to work. if i try to connect to a network it says connecting then disconnected over and over again. also, under phone info it shows my phone number as 000-000-0000 and MIN as all 0's, meid hex as A then all 0's. although my phone bill at metropcs was due two days ago and i haven't paid it yet. i don't know if i'd be able to make calls. lol i just tried to make a call... a female voice said "welcome to metropcs" twice, then a beep, then hang up.

LOL I guess I was just really, really tired last night. I got my wifi working again. I realized the problem when I woke up this morning. J had been using the wrong password. LOL.

As for restoring MEID I will tackle that after work.

Thanks everyone.

im pretty sure i for sure fixed it.... found this site GSM-Forum - View Single Post - Blackberry 8330 ESN Change help???/

anyway

i did this

(zeroed out my ESN and MEID... when i started they were zeroed but the process i used to try to fix them changed them to something else. something i did on cdma workshop zeroed out my esn again.)

mode offline-d
spc 000000
requestnvitemwrite meid 0x[my meid hex]
mode reset

phone restarted, checked my meid and esn and they are back to what they are supposed to be.

i have yet to pay my bill however but i'm pretty sure this all worked.

Welcome!

You'll find better answers from people in the galaxy s3 forum. Troubleshooting can be very device specific, and it's best to get it from others with your phone.
