So this was my problem: "So last night my wife deleted "LG Home" from her phone when I wasn't looking (she didn't know what it was) and while I was looking at it I decided to see where mine was stored on my phone but when I opened Root Explorer (app name) it froze at "getting root permissions". I backed out and forced it to quit and tried again with the same result. So I restarted my phone only to have it show LG splash, T-mobile sequence, and then an Android with a box and a status bar. The status bar stopped after a couple seconds and the phone reboots only to do it again." This is how I fixed it: You will need Windows to do this so if you're like me and use Linux you will need to run Windows in a virtual box. I suggest VMware Player found at VMware Player: Run Windows 7, Chrome OS - Free Download for a Virtual PC After you download and install it you will need to install Windows on it (I don't need to know where your Windows came from ). Now that you're on Windows you need LG updater. I suggest http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1287222698 because other downloads I found did nothing but crash. This is a .7z file so you need to install 7zip found here Download Install 7zip and unzip the KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.7z file. Go into the folder and install the updater. Then you will need to download LG official firmware android version v2.2.2 build v10 found here http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata...00/V10E_00.kdz Plug your phone into the computer and it should ask to install drivers. Let it do this. If it doesn't ask or it can't find them you can find them here Cell Phone Support - Mobile Phone Customer Service & Cell Phone Information - LG Electronics US (NOTICE: Don't be dumb like me and forget to do this. If you are running Windows on a virtual box you will need to disconnect from your host OS and connect on Windows. Only one system can access the device at a time. You can do this through the VMware tools tab in the window after you start Windows.) Open the LG updater and leave all the setting alone except select the V10E_00.kdz file and click the start button. Not long after your phone should switch into emergency mode and approx. 5min later the phone will restart and should be back to factory settings. (I didn't loose all my stuff and settings just some of them and apps I had downloaded) This works in any screen I believe because my wife had a blank black screen with the "task bar" at the top and my phone was off with the charging battery animation on the screen. I suggest having the SD card out of the phone as I have read this process can sometimes wipe it. I owe some credit to Yeahha for helping to point me in the right direction. I really hope this helps someone. Post your success here or message me. Good luck and never give up, remember there is always a way.
