    My LG ally is about 5 months old. I love the phone and am always on it.

    I rooted it yesterday and it worked fine.. I went in to flash it and re-install v3. but when i re booted i got a blue screen (Fastboot)

    IT says:

    Fastboot mode started
    udc_start()

    I cant do ANYTHING here.

    I can get to recovery and I try to mount my card on to my computer but it doesnt work.

    Any ideas on how to fix this, and please I need to get it working, thanks ahead of time.

    did you make a backup? If so, you can boot into recovery manually by pressing the volume down, home key and power key at the same time. press and hold for a bit and release. you should see the recovery console

    You wouldn't mount from recovery, you would mount from the bootloader. Did you install a custom recovery, like Clockwork or AmonRa?

    I think he meant mount from recovery so he could place a rom on his sdcard and then re-flash.

    Have you gone into Device Manager on windows and see'ing if drivers needed to be installed while you were in recovery?

    cmd?, Ill tell you what I'm able to do and we can try from there.

    I'm a noob when it comes to this.

    No SDK afaik

    If i let it boot w/o recovery i get to fastboot blue screen where I cant do anything.

    Am I able to mount my SD card, if so can someone explain.

    If your able to mount your sdcard. Download a rom and place it on the root of your sdcard and try flashing it.

    So to prevent this issue of happening again, get the sdks and make sure I have a backup?

    Just make sure you make a Nandroid backup in recovery. and the android sdk just provides some tools.

    Well one thing i would deffinelty recommend is always have multiple copies of a backup you make. Like once you make one save a copy of it to your pc. I've learned from expereince as my stock rom backup has gone poof :(.
