    pull the battery and start pressing button combinations and holding them and popping the batt back in... gotta find how to throw it into emergency programming mode. I'd guess the key combo won't be using the keyboard but I could be wrong.

    Thanks, have tried that before the all button combination but I will certainly try it again, maybe there is one combination I havent tried.

    Have you tried this?:

    LG Optimus Chat has a special mode called safe mode. It is designed for your phone to recover from any malfunctions. Here is what you need to do to get into safe mode.
    Turn off your phone;
    Reboot it;
    Press and hold the Send key while the Android Logo is displayed;
    The main screen should have "safe mode" shown in the lower left-hand corner.

    After all the fun and excitements are gone, now you are not satisfied with all the changes you made to you LG Optimus Chat. The good thing is that the LG Optimus Chat has a function to let you to return your phone to a know sate, the factory state.

    Before you reset your phone, please note this. All user applications and user data will be lost after the reset. Please be sure to back up all your data. So here is the procedure,
    Backup your data;
    Remove the back cover;
    Remove and reinsert the battery;
    Press and hold all these keys for over 10 seconds: Power/Lock key, Send key, and Down Volume key.
    When the power turns on, release these keys.

    Well then that would mean all your partitions are screwed.

    The only way to fix it would be to acquire the stock image and flash it to the phone with lgnpst.

    Where in the world is this phone supposed to live? I know it certainly isn't an American phone... I would suggest looking for phone modification sites frequented by the people that live wherever that thing is sold.

    Sorry I can't be more of a help.

    Let this be a lesson to everyone:
    Don't EVER use Rom Manager for something that doesn't show up in it's list...

    Hooray! after Days of my phone stuck on LG screen and many different pressing of different buttons as the phone started I finally found the right button combination on my phone to get it into emergency mode. I had to press end call button and press 'q' on the qwerty keypad and then the phone went yellow screen with 'emergency mode' written at the top - then I just took the battery out and re-inserted it and pressed the power on/end call button and hoorah the phone booted up normally and whats more all my apps were there too it hadnt deleted anything. Am very happy and feel like I must be on a winning streak so gonna buy a lottery ticket today! :) either that or god was looking down on me and felt sorry. Brill though. Thanks for people answering me even if in the end no-one suggested pressing Q and the power button.

    I was wondering if this method will work for an Optimus stuck on the "Android" boot screen.

    I currently have two phones - both Optimus - stuck on the android screen. One of them is a 2.2.2 and the other is a rooted 2.2.1.

    I am currently allowing the battery to drain.

    This method will fix any phone that will light up.

    Don't wait for the battery to drain, unplug power, pull battery, then hold down all the buttons and pop the batt back in or plug power in.

    I read this just as both my phones died. :rolleyes:

    Anyways, I'll try it out and report back in a bit.

    EDIT: Getting an error to load the Skin.dll message.

    EDIT 2: Ignore first edit. I fixed that.

    EDIT 3: Thanks a lot. It successfully un-bricked my phone. Now I have no signal or data connection at all. Anyone know how to fix this?

    EDIT 4: If anyone is wondering: I got past the skin.dll error by passing LGNPST.exe to C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST, and I am getting past the connection problems by following this guide: [GUIDE] How To Restore Service If You've Lost Your MEID

    it is a good chance your UAC user account control is on you should turn it off or it will not work.
