    have you tried taking the battery out and holding down VOL down+HOME+POWER and then pushing the battery back in while still holding down those buttons? AND make sure you continue to hold them down for about 5 to 7 seconds after it comes on. It should boot into recovery mode and do a factory reset.

    Hey, I'm sorry to hear about your problem. Even though your not stuck in fastboot since you don't have recovery we can treat it as such. Please refer to Joneidy's guide to getting out of fastboot. I cannot post the link as im on my mobile, for that I apologize. However, I can tell you the guide is here in this subforum and that starting it in emergency mode plus using LGPST will most definitely save your phone but not the data nor apps...You're phones factory recovery may be broken if you delete certain system apps, so be careful with that. Also keep in mind that when using any kind of non-market software to also have the Lookout Mobile Security app. This will stop the installation of corrupt or malicious applications :)

    Edit: Since you're going to be doing a pure factory reset this might be a good chance to root your device, install custom recovery, and make NAND backups regularly this way you'll never encounter a soft-brick you can't fix in less than 10 minutes ;)

    Hey , I had the same problem until i read this.... It was kinda difficult but i pressed the poqwer ,up,and home buttons down hard for about 15seconds and then it finally came on and i continued to hold those buttons for a7 more seconds. went into factory boot mode, well i erased the catch and all the collected data and do a factory reboot/reset.... my phone turned back on but sat in the android loop for about 30 seconds, THEN finally restarted and works perfect now !!! thanks so much ..... and my advise it to try it again
