    Has anyone else had this problem, and can offer any tips?

    My LG Optimus M was working fine (except a delay issues with text messages) so I figured I would check for updates (I already have the 2.2 installed).

    During the "updating" part there was a problem with communication and the process halted.

    Now, my phone is frozen on a "S/W Upgrade, Do Not Unplug" screen, won't turn off (I have to remove the battery, but when I reinsert it, the same screen comes up). I've tried to re-start the update, that doesn't work, and I can't seem to do a factory reset.

    Any ideas (or is C-4 my only option at this point?)

    Thanks

    What is C-4????

    You will have to do an unbrick here:

    You can skip the step that says to put the phone into emergency mode with the key combination because you are already in that mode ;)

    C4 is an explosive clay-like material. Very fun to use but also very dangerous.

    It should also be noted that C4 is a military grade explosive, and as such, is not obtainable in the open market.
