    Hello! Thank you for clicking on this and I appreciate it in advance for even trying to help.
    This is what it looks like:

    Sorry the images may be too big..don't know how to resize on this site yet.

    I decided to Root my phone on my way to to learning how to delete bloatware.
    And in my journey,
    I followed the instructions on this tutorial: http://www.theandroidsoul.com/install-twrp-root-lg-stylo-2-plus/
    I have an LG Stylo 2
    Plus. (don't know if the "plus" makes a difference, but just making sure).

    THAT tutorial, linked me to this tutorial: http://www.theandroidsoul.com/unlock-bootloader-via-fastboot-android/

    And in this step:
    " 6. Once your device is in bootloader mode, issue the following command to unlock bootloader:
    fastboot oem unlock
    "

    my PC's command prompt said [waiting for device..]
    for a solid 30 minutes.

    It became obvious it wasn't going anywhere, so I chose to "get out of fastboot mode" using this guide:
    https://androidforums.com/threads/guide-get-out-of-fastboot-mode.382525/

    EVERYTHING WORKED.
    ......except


    When I reached this step

    My computer gave me this:

    1. Highlighted "Android Platform Sooner Single ADB ....Version 1.0"
    [​IMG]
    2. ..............

    I just want it to locate the driver/ do anything possible to get out of fastboot mode.
    Also,
    the battery on my phone was 100% before this happened, and it's still connected.
    I'm not even sure if it's able to charge right now (doubt it), and I'm not sure if I'll be able to turn it back on after the battery is gone, if I don't find a way to 'fix' this.

    Please help, and
    thank you very much.

    -SOLVED-
    I took out the battery myself, and it still didn't work. BUT THEN,
    When I took it to MetroPCS, and when the employee took out the battery, it worked. :|
    I thanked her~

    Also, thanks for answering!
