Need to completely restore my phone
Backstory: I was trying to free up space by deleting stock apps. I don't know what I deleted, but I ended up messing up a ton of features, including not being able to download anymore applications. I've spent all day trying to fix it, finally ended up backing up all my contacts and factory resetting it. However, this doesn't restore the default apps, and am still unable to download anything from the store. So, I am trying to completely restore it as if it were new.
What I have read/tried: I don't know if this is right, but I read that I should try to flash a ROM onto it(?). I downloaded it, however I have no idea how to flash it. Every method that I've found says to use an app to do it, but I can't do that since I can't download any apps. Also, I have not found any PC programs that are able to detect my phone through USB. LG PC Suite is unable to connect to my phone although I am able to use it as a storage device from the SD card.
So, where do I go from here? Thanks.
- I can't download anything from the app store.
- I have not found any PC program that is able to connect to my phone.
- I am able to use access the SD card from the computer.
- Initial approach is to try to flash a ROM, but I don't know how to do that given the above conditions.
