Stuck in download mode

    I had been flashing my stock rom back to my phone after trying out ICS, and I accidentally formatted my SD card while clearing all the caches to do it. Well, I managed to get the phone into download mode, not sure how I did that, but now I've found out that if I can get back into CWR I can use it to mount the USB and get a rom back on to repair my phone. But I can't get into CWR because it's stuck in download mode.


    Can anyone tell me how to get out of download mode and back into CWR please so I can either #1 put a custom rom back on my phone, or #2 use my Wondershare recovery to to recover my stock rom backup so I can put it back? All I want is to get my phone working again. Thanks.

    With the LG Optimus V it is referred to as emergency mode.

    Have you tried pulling the battery and holding down the power button for 30sec. ?
    Then try to get into recovery. If no go, you might have to use sammyz's KDZ Updater unbrick method.

    Question: What is the Wondershare recovery you speak of?

    It's a program that you install on the PC that's designed to recover data from a formatted drive/SD card. If I can get into CWR I can mount the USB and use it to recover the data on my SD card. No, I hadn't yet. I have the ZV9 baseband. My thing is just needing to get out of E mode so I can get into CWR, but I'll try that, thanks.

    Thank you! It worked to get back in CWR, now just have to wait for the battery to charge enough that I can do it. <33 it did unbrick, though, thank God. It would cost 100 bucks to replace it, I can't afford that because of a mistake. XD

    Thanks to my husband's card reader (Did not even know he had one installed on his comp) and a stock rom I found online, my phone is now completely up and running again. Thanks again to Sammy and Andy who helped me get back into CWM recovery so I could even flash a new rom onto it. I am going to be more careful from now on about doing double backups (Both to SD card and comp) so if this happens again it's much more easily recoverable.
