    Plug in the phone and run lgnpst, look on the right side, if there is a bunch of 0's you need this guide:
    http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-...-restore-service-if-youve-lost-your-meid.html

    If on the side of lgnpst your phone number and other random numbers appear, you probably need to update your prl, this guide will help you:
    http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-m/391622-tutorial-manual-update-3020-prl.html

    If you manage to get service but your phone number is wrong and not zeros I am working on a fix for this, hang tight...

    Hi, I take it from the drivers you mention that you have a windows machine. I got to the point of having the right key combination to get the software upgrade screen. USB finally is recognized, even though it's not in fasboot mode. However, it's recognized as a modem, and fastboot and adb don't recognize it. Anyway, what should I do after I get that screen on a mac?

    Man on a MAC you will not be able to unbrick it. In order to unbrick the phone you need to run a program called LGNPST.exe. If you really have to do it on a MAC you will need to install windows as a Virtual Machine. Then follow the whole guide.

    Hope you get the phone back.

    Reboot the PC. If that doesn't work reinstall the drivers.

    After being up half the night and trying again in the morning to stop that Lg logo from flashing. Why when i held the power, up, camera, and home button and pushed the battery in, the phone booted back up like nothing ever happened. The only change to the phone is no recovery

    type *.* as the file name and the bin will show up if it's in that folder.

    it also works to remove battery, do buttons then plug in. right into emergency/dev mode. in lgnpst install scr, eri in emergency then prl. go to "meid fix" thread with qxdm and reprogram from all zeroes. you can skip the write esn line, probably won't work. then you're back to 2.2.1 stock. gingerbreak to root. easy way to downgrade from 2.2.2.

    Hello I wonder if you can help me I seem to have bricked my LG Optimus Chat C550 Android phone by using a rom manager and it didnt like it. Now all I get when I turn on my phone is an LG boot screen and its stuck and the lights on the qwerty pull out keyboard flash on and off, the computer dont recognise the phone when plugged in by USB cable. Have tried your suggestion but my C550 has no camera button and the back key is not a key as such its a 'touch' sensitive key - the only proper button keys are the send and end buttons and the volume up and down button and the pull out qwerty keyboard - am I stuffed do you reckon? please help if you can I really liked this phone before I bricked it :(. Thanks in advance for any help/advice. Andy from Ireland.
