OK, so I bought a phone and considered rooting it. So I came here and read this post - http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-...-how-simplified-root-recovery-custom-rom.html I followed the instructions to the detail. However, once I had my ClockworkMod backup created, I set off to install a ROM. I installed a rom from the CWModapp list. Everything was good there and my then my phone rebooted. It became looped in the CWMod recovery. I read all about that in the forums and tried multiple fixes. Restoring the back up did not work, Installing a new ROM would not end the cycle either. I came back to the forums and read about Xionia Recovery. I installed that from the zip from within CWmod recovery. It completed successfully. I then reboot the device. Now the "Android System recovery" comes on and does what it does briefly. This is Followed by the LG splash screen. This is where it stays forever and ever. I can repeat the process, but each time, the Android System recovery comes on and the LG screen remains. Is there a fix or is this shot??? Thanks in advance.
