Sorry if Iím not posting this in the right section, but i spent all night trying to get this phone working again and Iíve been mostly unsuccessful. I have a LG ALLY (yea i know its old, but i donít care, it did what i needed it to do)
It started yesterday, i was running the last OTA update available, rooted with ginger break, rom manager installed, i decided to mess around and try this stupid PS3 jailbreak thing, so i went into clockwork mod recovery and flashed the zip, the flash failed, which was disappointing, so i continued to mess around with it, and then i decided to install a custom rom, So i downloaded Raptor 0.1 and flashed it.
after the flash finished, i rebooted the phone, and it boot-looped, so i tried flashing the stock V8 rom, still boot loop, thinking it was something with the boot loader i decided to try and get the boot loader reflashed, being a novice that has most experience jtaging routers, i thought maybe i could flash the boot loader through clockwork mod recovery. So i downloaded i believe fast boot, installed it, it didnít help much, but i still had Clockwork mod....
So i copied the stock boot loader files to the SD card, connected the phone, went into clockwork mod, opened a ADB shell, mounted the SD, flashed the boot loader image, which removed clockwork mod, but i still had a boot loop, it went past the LG screen, to the Verizon screen, then the blue indicator light flashed, then the rebooted. So i did more research, downloaded LGNPST, put the phone into boot loader mode (well i think its boot loader mode, donít quite know what to call it, i held the 5 button while plugging the USB cable in) and LGNPST recognized it as in recovery, so i renamed the VS740ZV6_01.TOT file to VS740ZV6_01.TOT.bin so LGNPST could recognize it, and restored it
The restore finished successfully i thought i was on the right track to fixing it, until i tried to go through the initial setup and realized the touch screen isnít working, Iím thinking itís not loading the modules, but here is what gets me, When i turn it off, and hold down the proper buttons to hard reset it, it goes to the right screen, then 3 seconds later reboots, and it takes the same exact amount of time to boot as before the hard reset attempt, so i donít think it is resetting.
So, From what i can tell, This LG ALLY needs a new boot loader... due to the hard reset not working, also i guess i should mention, when itís in boot loader mode, it disconnects and reconnects to USB every like 10 - 15 seconds, Iím not sure if thatís normal, but i thought i might as well mention it.
The one thing i do know, is the MEID is probably gone, which i donít care about because i used this phone with Google Voice over WIFI only, didnít have service and didnít need it.
Please help, I really need this phone working, i have been using my Archos 101 tablet as my phone, and that is just awkward...
Any more questions please ask, Thank you forum
and before you flame me, yea i know i shouldnít of messed with the phone in the first place, but i didnít think it would be this difficult to restore to stock, heck my Archos 101 tablet is easy to restore, didnít think the LG ally was any harder.
Also, yes i did research this, and i did Google for guides, i couldnít find anything helpful... So please help.
(PS, i tried the VS740 thing, the KP500-Utils-EN.exe utility, it wouldnít get past 4 percent... just error'd out with a page error i believe)
