    First to get rid of confusion, this guide is strictly for the Optimus M + NOT the Optimus M (old)

    Optimus M + Model#: MS695

    Optimus M (old) Model#: MS690
    Image:
    [​IMG]
    The unbrick guide for the Optimus M (old) MS690 is here: http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-all-things-root/364080-unbrick-phone-lg-screen.html
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now that confusion is gone of which phone is yours, lets continue with what you need to unbrick this bad boy.

    Note: The files I am using do not use joneidy's unbrick PM guide files. LGNPST will not work with the DLL that LG supplied us.

    You will need to download everything in this mediafire folder: Free Cloud Storage - MediaFire
    Or everything in this quote:
    Once you download all that, extract it.

    Step 1: Install B2CAppSetup from the LG folder

    Step 2: Open LGMobile Support Tool>Install USB Driver>Select Carrier>MetroPCS>Double-click LGMS695>Reboot after installation is done.

    Plug in phone now and make sure it is in emergency mode. Put it in emergency mode by following this:
    Step 3: Open the KP500-Utils-EN-v0.4.2 folder and then Open "Open"

    Step 4: Choose J
    Step 5: Type MS695>Press Enter
    Step 6: Type the complete location of MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027.cab

    Example: You extracted it to your Downloads folder it would be:
    C:\Users\%USER%\Downloads\KP500-Utils-EN-v0.4.2\MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027.cab

    Press Enter

    Step 7: Copy and Paste this: MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027 >Press Enter

    Step 8: If a prompt comes up asking to restart, press restart. Once it finishes you are unbricked. Enjoy :D

    That's the worst operating system to use in general. Windows vista has its own problems.....it would be easiest for me to do it...

    Did you:
    -pull battery?
    -connect to outlet?

    What did you do before it wouldn't turn on?

    I was in Clockwork recovery. I went to flash a rom but chose the wrong one (I had Samsung roms saved from my previous phone) and it installed and just shut off. Now it doesn't turn on at all. I did everything I could, pulling out the batter, trying to go into recovery manually. Everything, but it just doesn't wanna turn on

    I don't know ! I just thought maybe if I modifed another rom from a different, changing the source code to match the lg optimus information maybe I can flash it without any problem. I guess I was wrong ^~^. And no, how do you put it in emergency mode ?

    My OP says how someone else was able to.
    Also next time if you're going to flash a rom, at least flash something from a phone that is very similar by hardware....flashing from a completely different brand is asking for a brick.

    Take out battery, then plug in phone and see if it turns on, if not, there's nothing we can do.
