    I'm guessing you don't have a cwm back up before hand. I don't think there is a way to do it without a PC. I might be wrong you can try flashing the stock ROMs but I doubt that will fix it.

    Is your phone in download mode? Power off your device, you can take out the battery. Connect it to your PC USB and hold power button with volume up. It should say Download Mode on your phone.

    At this point I'm not sure what might be wrong. What the possible error may be you can use lg mobile software tool to auto download it for you without using this. Instead try opening the first software without flash tools and perform a recovery upgrade.

    LG Mobile Support Tool after it recognizes your phone it allows you to do a recovery upgrade. This does the same thing as flash tools but it takes longer because it redownloads the kdz file every time.

    I use this for unbricking Unbricking.zip, i got it from the LG Motion unbricking guide, it works for this phone. I used this like 1,000 times ;)

    You will need the kdz file, First open up"KDZ_FW_UPD.exe" and then set the type as 3GQCT, Phone Mode CS_Emergency, Click the little folder and select the KDZ then launch software update
