Call Google and explain exactly what you did. They will refer you to LG for warranty. After that put it in a box and wait to get it back. I doubt the charge will be that much. At the end of the whole thing you'll feel like a better person. And next time back up your EFS first.

There's also the possibility that "your local friendly mobile repair store" can fix it.

You need box to generate new EFS with your imei. Some repair shops have it.
