    OK so I rooted it with gingerbreak. It was working fine and then I tried to install a custom rom and I think I didn't flash the custom recovery right and now I just get a black screen for recovery and emergency mode. Please Help!!!

    You put a recovery not for your screen there's many threads on this it is fixable so don't worry. Can you start your phone?

    Ok, can you still boot to the bootloader?

    Most times this is fixable, so lets see what we can find out. :)

    Let me do a little research, hang tight. :)

    I also moved your thread to the All Things Root forum for your phone. This way the rooted uses with your phone can give you better help. :)

    I can start my phone up it just gets stuck at the android loading screen. I just can't get into recovery or emergency mode. They both pop up with black screens.

    HMMM, maybe I should get Andy involved? I'll see if he's around and send him over.

    It takes adb which Im not the best at. If it booted into the phone I could do it from there.

    Sounds great I have been up many night trying to fix this problem. I dont want to send it in just yet. I am trying to fix it myself. I believe its a better solution than sending it into LG or VM. Thanks for all the help.

    Ok,I'm back ready to help.
    To the OP: when you get back here with any questions just shoot me a quick but brief pm and no matter where I'm at as long as the phone is on I'll get a notification ring tone announcing you message.

    I'll then meet you over here.

    If I'm here in the forum I'll see your new post.
    What all have you done since the black screen?

    well I've tried using LGMDP to try to reflash it but the emergency mode it preventing my from doing that and that is about the only thing I've tried. I have also tried getting into recovery mode trying to restore but I get a black screen
