    I hope someone on here can help..I wanted to install new ROM and I wiped data, cache, and dalvik. for some reason there was an error when i tried to install the rom zip file from internal sdcard and i restarted the phone..now the phone boots up but i dont see any icons i only see the status bar on top but i cant pull it down to set usb to mass storage. and worst of all I can't boot to recovery anymore. but my computer does detect the phone through usb but i cant see the drive in My Computer.

    If anyone knows a solution please let me know because I don't wanna buy another phone.

    Take out your battery put it back in then press and hold the volume up and down button plus the power button tell u see the lg screen then release power button and press it 3 times then it will ask are u sure you want to wipe date but dont worry it will take you to recovery then you can flash another rom are a backup if you have one.

    Gonna have to redownload the rom and get it on your sd card or you can upgrade your phone using the lg update tool me i like zvb but others say zvd is better.

    Always put anything your gonna flash on your external sd card.

    I've never formatted my internal sd. I'll manually delete files before i do that.

    Sounds like it was a bad download. Put your sd into your computer and put several roms on there and flash into cwm. Try one until one works.

    i guess it was a bad download because when I tried to open the zip file on my computer it said it was corrupted and couldnt open it. I redownloaded it and now atleast the zip file opens..ill flash it later thanks
