Thanks to this forum I was able to fix my phone after bricking it. So I feel I need to give back. I found out what caused the error and see there is no other post on the subject other than HELP, I bricked my phone, what do I do now. So figured I should give back. The cause is by doing one of 2 things. Either by removing "My Metro" or by stopping the "My Metro" service. (MetroPCS Easy wi-fi is also a suspect but not yet proven.) When the phone starts, just after the LG bios starts and is completed, the MetroPCS splash sequence starts. This splash is located as a series of pictures somewhere on the device drive. (Cannot remember where I found it at the moment.) This splash page sequence is controlled by My Metro. Disabling My Metro is the Security Error because this is the software that connects you to the MetroPCS network. DO NOT DISABLE "MY METRO" in anyway. Do not stop Services, start-ups, start-up triggers or disabling the application, or remove the application. This must be run or you will BRICK. My Resources: This is of course a lesson from personal experience. Even though I am a programmer of 30 years experience, this is not information from reading any code. This is an assumption from insanity. Meaning I did the same thing over and over again expecting different results until I got different results. When I stopped disabling My Metro my problem went away. There is one other application I stopped disabling and that is MetroPCS Easy Wi-fi. This is also be a suspect. But because I starts with MetroPCS I am not going to mess with it any more. The M Studio, Metro Block-it and Metro 411 are safe to disable or remove. I know what I know because of 30 years of breaking shat. Funny thing is, I need to get use to calling it Bricking instead. But it's all the same in the end.
