    I have an LG Optimus V that I bought from a friend, and I clicked factory reset from the Privacy menu. My phone shut down and after it rebooted a different menu came up. I think the phone was rooted because the menu that came up is, "ClockworkMod Recovery V5.0.2.7". I am not sure what I need to do next, in the bottom section the following occurs:

    Menu Key: No visible effect occurs
    Home Key: No visible effect occurs
    Back Key: 1st press; Highlighted selection moves up one space and menu disappears to reveal logo
    2nd press; Menu reappears
    Search Key: (same as back key, instead of moving up one space, the selection moves down
    Volume buttons: Up; No visible effect
    Down; Highlighted selection moves down, no other effect
    Power button: 1st press: Menu disappears
    2nd Press: Menu reappears with highlighted section at very top of the list



    Any further info, please reply...

    Welcome aboard!

    I am not familiar with your phone but if you are seeing a CWM recovery screen, the screen was most likely rooted. You can see if there are any "restore" files for your device to download and restore your phone to a stock (non-rooted) version of the most update software. Good luck!
