    I used flash recovery GUI to flash my system. I then preceded to reboot only to find myself in something called fastboot? What is this and how do I restore my phone ?

    Flashimgui is only used for flashing recoveries. You should NEVER use it for flashing system.img's. What you need to do is find someone's Nand backup of an optimus m. You really need to know how to use adb and fastboot if you want out of it? are you good with adb?

    It should still work though, the purpose of fastboot on the phone is to keep you from being bricked, hes going to lose all data though

    I thought you only lost data when you unlocked the bootloader? o.o At least that what it does on my Xoom. xD

    bootloader is not locked on the optimus :D but on the M/C it is only accessible when recovery or system is corrupted/bad flash

    not true, I have gotten into fastboot many times without losing data, if you only messed up recovery, u dont have to lose data, when in recovery you only " fastboot erase recovery" and "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"
