[GUIDE] Get out of Fastboot Mode

Last Updated:

    I'm having the same problem, being stuck at "waiting for device".
    I've installed the LG drivers that joneidy included with the fastboot download but it's still getting stuck.
    I also tried other drivers downloaded from LG directly and get the same "waiting for device" with each and every one of them.

    I'm running Windows7 Ultimate 64bit if that makes any difference?

    When I try joneidy's manual driver instal method, it comes up with that drivers not found error as well.

    If anyone can help shed some light on this problem, it would be greatly appreciated!!!

    joneidy, THANKS BIG TIME for the work you do here!!!

    hey everyone! If you cant get out of fastboot after typing "fastboot reboot" make sure you unplug your usb chord before the lg screen appears after the screen goes black.
    Hope this helps! =D

    Yes! You can download ROM Manager and get CWM from there. It will be labeled as lw690 for Cricket, but it is identical and will work (does work, I'm using it currently on mine and my wife's phones) on our ms690 Metro PCS phones. Press the flash CWM twice.

    OK, to get OUT of fastboot mode, when you allow it to reboot, either pull the cable out (as stated, didnt try it) OR press the power, vol down, and home key all together when the screen goes dark and hold until the recover screen comes up. I mess this up twice and finally got it. My phone is now sitting there with the cyanogenmod 7 screen with the android on a skateboard in a circle with an arrow at 9:00, no longer turning.. for about 8 minutes now...hmm. Going to Mickey D's to get a sundae, hope its un-F'd when I get back or its back the fastboot screen and the stock img ROM.

    OK, installed a simple ROM AplusROM 2.2 and it booted up in about 2 minutes. My CY-7 must be a bad download.

    Hey sorry to bother but i followed your guide on how to remove the fastboot startup but i messed up at the end. Instead of selecting the rom i chose reboot and now i can't get back to the recovery screen, what can i do? :(

    Ok, so I followed the instructions but when the phone rebooted it just stopped at the LG screen and keeps blinking now...no recovery menu. Any thoughts?

    If you cant get to boot menu try powering off, hold home+ down volume then power. Hold until another menu comes up which could take like 5 seconds. If nothing helps, download Joneidy's Sense Rom and flash your phone. That's what i did and it worked.

    i fallowed all the instructions but after pasting "fastboot erase boot" it stays stuck in < waiting for device > and its been like that for the past 20 minutes.

    the phone version is right, everything else is where is supposed to be installed.

    what am i doing wrong?

    Disconnect phone, take out battery, put battery back in, turn on, reconnect USB.

    If that fails, make sure you have the phone drivers installed.

    If that fails, disconnect your phone and restart your computer. Then reconnect your phone.

    Ik this post is kinda old....

    After a TON of trouble trying to install the drivers in Windows 7 64-bit:


    Instead of installing the drivers shown in the screenshots, instead go into the folder called "64BITADB"

    From there, then it's the same as the screenshots.

    Thank you very much for the wonderful guide! It saved my M :D

    I had the same problem with my Windows XP, it was saying "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware". Then I used my friend's lap top with Windows 7 and it worked flawlessly. And took less than 10 min:) Thank you Joneidy for that guide. It saved my phone!

    everything would be the same EXCEPT, find a custom recovery made for your phone and replace the "somefile.img"
    also find the drivers made for your cell phone
