Default I softbricked my lgl55c

I accidentally removed the write protection on launcher2.apk so when i reset the phone it erased the app. Download mode does not work. Recovery does not work. USB debugging is off. Fastboot does not show anything in the command prompt. abd does not work(disabled).
Because launcher2.apk is gone i cannot get past the touch logo/welcome screen.No root permissions. No CWM or TRWP recovery.
bootloader does not work.

what do I do?

Is this phone now a glorified paper weight with LCD screen?

You probably won't find much info on that one here as we tend to focus on more carrier or popular phones. I don't think LG ever put out the official firmware. You might have better luck asking one of the guys over here:
