Updated instructions, and 30 mins for each long wait time, 1 minute for each short wait time. Still no luck.

Sounds like your last resort is to exchange it.

I do have a question though.

When you first get to the black recovery screen - if you press the camera button, does the phone reboot?

If it does, then you just need to get the right key presses, if it doesn't - then yeah... no hope.

No, and I was going to bring that up and forgot about it. Thank you for reminding me. I'm guessing that's a bad sign

Yep, the first item in the recovery is Reboot. So if that's not even working, then you're just wasting time.

Ok so does anyone know if I can get my phone replaced by Virgin Mobile as defective? Or do I need to return it to Amazon (to the seller I bought it from)? Can I go to a Sprint store and get it replaced?

Virgin Mobile wont be able to help you, nor will sprint, for the simple fact that you rooted the phone.. it breaks any carriers ToS, your best bet would be trying the vendor from Amazon, or wait till someone comes up with a miracle cure for your phone.

I should of asked what wonshikee asked you, before I proceeded with the button presses.

His PC doesn't see the phone so adb/fastboot won't work.

And his black screen recovery doesn't work either.

The only other option is to try to cram the Sprint firmware into it using Emergency Mode. You will lose MMS and phone and 3G, maybe. I think you can call VM and get your phone's Vitals like MIN, PRL Version, and MEID. Maybe.

You will have at least WiFi, if it works.

Do you want to give it a try?

You want to use the ZV9 .cab file.

Boot into recovery
wait about 15 seconds..
press the Volume down button 2 times
press the camera button one time
press the Volume up button 4 times
press the camera button once
wait about 10-15 minutes (while it formats your phone)
press back button
press the volume down button 3 times
press the camera button once
press the volume up button 4 times
press the camera button once
wait 5sec (while it wipes the cache partition)
press back button
press the volume up button 2 times
press the camera button once
press the volume down button once
press the camera button
press volume up 4 times
press the camera button
wait 5sec(while it wipes your dalvik cache)
press back button
press volume down 4 times
press camera button
press camera button
press volume up button 1 time (it is very important that only the BACKside-IHO-VM670-02192012.zip file, was the only file on the root of your sd card.)
press camera button
press volume up button 4 times
-press camera button once-
wait 10-15minutes(while it installs the BACKside Rom)
press back button
press camera button
hopefully this will install the BACKside rom for you.. if not, im not sure what to tell you.

You could flash a stock rom, backup the apps, and restore them using titanium backup.

Where do I download the stock rom from? Really just want google play working. Is there a stock gingerbread rom that has google play on it? Or do I have to install it manually?

This will give you stock: http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-all-things-root/571325-using-lgnpst-1-3-full-stock-zv5.html

It's the best way to get back to stock.

Go back to the Backside thread. On the first post you will see a link for the gapps.zip, download that to your sd card, reboot into recovery, select install zip from sd card, scroll down to where have the gapps.zip. Select it, confirm it, reboot when it's done, enjoy. No need to wipe anything, or to return to stock.
