    Had my LG Vortex for about a month now, finally decided to root it, on the advice of a friend. Lo' and behold within the first 10 minutes, I feel my phone is cooked.

    I acquired Root Manager, Rom Manager and Launcher Pro. I went to back up the phone's current state before really playing with anything (hadn't even deleted bloatware), and when the phone rebooted, it stayed showing me the LG screen. And that's all I've had since, is the LG logo.

    Battery tricks and hard resets won't work. Not about to bring it to the Verizon store, I'm sure I'll get laughed out for voiding the warranty. Is there ANYTHING I can do?

    If you can't get past the Verizon logo, then it's not likely Verizon will either. They aren't that clever. Call customer support, play dumb as in "I don't know what could have happened", and they will send you a replacement. Worked for my daughter.
