    So, This morning I was texting away like any other day, and my phone froze up. I've had it only for a couple weeks, and no problems like this. So I turned it back on, and now, it's stuck on "Download in progress. Do not Disconnect Cable." Well, I've tried the power+volume to reset it, no luck, nothing happens. Is there anything I can do..??

    What does the screen show/say? Are you connecting to the computer when it happens? Do you have a browser downloading or updating anything?

    I'd say do a battery pull if you don't know what it is. But it very well could be an OTA update. But I can't say for sure because I don't have this phone.

    I wsn't, nor have been, connected to anything. Like I said, I was texting away, phone froze, rebooted it, this pops up. Just the circle arrows staying in the same place with the LG logo and says the download in progress thing.

    Also, I have taken the battery out for several hours, nothing happens.

    I'm gonna look in to this in a bit but it sounds like an update. Are you rooted and running a ROM or are you stock?

    Quick search landed this. Its an OTA update. LG or your provider pushes this to your phone. Helps fix bugs and sometimes gives you a whole new phone (so to speak). Only question left is why it won't just download. Which lands back to are you rooted..?

    That download mode isnt the OTA. It's kind of a failsafe mode built into the bootloader. It supports things like dumping memory and writing to the internal flash. To talk to the phone in download mode, you have to use proprietary software on your computer and a usb cable.

    i would send it back and get a replacement. you never rooted it would appear. seems to be a malfunction of the device. sounds like to me it failed during the update process and caused it to loop in the download mode.
