    The foolproof guide should work... Might possibly be a driver issue stopping you from doing it. Try this:

    Uninstall LG drivers (Add remove programs)
    Reinstall LG drivers from LG update tool or use this link as a walkthrough:
    LG Shine Plus?

    If doing the hold 1 + plug in USB cable doesn't work, not much you can do... The LG updater must have gotten stuck while upgrading the bootloader, which bricks the phone... Sadly, I haven't had the possibility of trying to fix this issue. There might be a JTAG solution (Flashing the device with a physical JTAG box, implies soldering box onto phone's internal circuitry) but you'd have to bring it to a cellphone repair shop. If it's still under warranty, get it repaired... Otherwise, JTAG might be your only avenue to explore. :|
