    There is an unbrick guide sticky at the top of the all things root forum, use that guide and it should get you right back up and running. First time I bricked my phone (Last year, I accidentally erased my SD card and had to figure out how to return to stock so I could fix it) it worked like a charm. Should get you back and running within an hour or so.

    They have to be done from e mode, in case you hadn't tried. I've never seen a phone so badly bricked it couldn't be recovered, but I suppose it is possible. If neither of those methods work SammyZ might be able to give you more advice.

    Look at the 3rd and 4th sticky. Read every post in the AAA sticky.
    Go here: Unbricking your Optimus V
    This is a last resort and could leave you with no 3G. Phone,txt (no picture txt), and WiFi will work.
    Toward the bottom of the post in the AAA sticky there is some hope of regaining the all important AAA code, but not tested or proven to work 100%.

    Try again, it will work. Follow eveything to the letter. Read,read,read then try again.
    I had a stone cold brick for over a year. The tutorial I linked to you work on it.
