    Your likely stuck at a boot loop. Did you make a backup before flashing the rom? Why didn't you wipe data+cache before flashing?

    You will need to get into the recovery that you flashed. And if you made a backup you need to restore with that backup.

    With the phone off you hold SEND+MENU+PWR until the LG logo screen comes up then let go. That boots you into recovery

    -Then power off your phone.
    -Hold SEND+MENU+PWR until the LG logo screen comes up then let go. That boots you into recovery
    -Did you make a backup? If you use the restore option to restore with the backup you made.
    -If not, go to this thread and download the Ally Stock v8 rom http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/162973-high-speed-download-links-ally-software-es.html
    -Then at the recovery screen select USB-MS Toggle and place the Ally v8 rom you downloaded into root of the sd card. Then follow the instruction to close the USB connection.
    -Once the rom is on your phone do a data+cache wip and use the flash an zip form sdcard option to install the Ally v8 rom you downloaded.

    The backup will restore you phone to the rom you had previously
    Yes as long as the recovery is flashed in this it is you will always be able to boot into recovery and restore with an backup or flash with a new rom.

    Okay the best thing in my opinion would be

    Do either 1 or 2 (try 1 frst if that dosent work then try 2)

    1. Boot into recovery and do a data+cache wipe then try restoring the rom.

    2. go to this thread and download the Ally Stock v8 rom High Speed Download Links for Ally Software(es)
    -Then at the recovery screen select USB-MS Toggle and place the Ally v8 rom you downloaded into root of the sd card. Then follow the instruction to close the USB connection.
    -Once the rom is on your phone do a data+cache wip and use the flash an zip form sdcard option to install the Ally v8 rom you downloaded.

    the reason i tried that clockwork thing is because it showed a picture of different looking this you could do with the ally, did i just do it wrong? and is this v8 this like the same thing?

    -The Ally v8 stock rom is a copy of the rom that shipped with the phone.
    -I have no clue what you mean with "a picture of different looking this".

    First of all i want to make sure your phone is usable. Are you able to use your phone like before the boot loop happened?

    Okay good glad we got your phone working again. As far as how to flash roms and the whole clockwork thing. I'm making a guide that will include pictures that should make things easier. Won't be posted until sometime tomamrow though.

    Clockwork Recovery is not a rom. It is a recovery image that gets flashed to your phone and you use SEND+MENU+PWR to boot into the recovery.

    You likely experience that boot loop because you did not wipe data+cache like you said in your original post.

    It is a lighter ROM than stock that adds a few performance tweaks. More than that its rather new and really all we have at the moment

    It will be up tommarow
