Boot loop after factory reset :(
I know what you're probably thinking "Idiot, you didn't read the numerous warnings did you?"
The thing is, I just bought Optimus V from a dude on craigslist today. It appeared to be running a stock rom etc, so I performed a factory reset to make sure all his data was off the phone.
It's now stuck in a boot loop where it shows the LG logo then a white box with an orange arrow coming out next to the green droid bot.
I've followed several posts on fixing this, and they all include flashing a recovery image.
The problem is, I get "can't find recovery partition: No such file or directory" every time I try flashing it.
I'm assuming the previous owner tried rooting or something. Or perhaps he flashed a stock rom after rooting.
I'm able to adb shell into the phone, and I'm assuming the phone has already been rooted since I can run "su" and no error occurs.
Any ideas on how I can fix this?
I'll be using this phone for testing mobile websites on, so I actually prefer if it were stock, but I'll take booting at this point.
