First of all-mods, feel free to move this if it needs to go somewhere else.

Anyway, I just flashed Cyanogenmod 11, after rebooting from recovery after flashing the zip, I get nothing but a black screen. Now here's the odd part- it is recognized by Windows when plugged in as "LG Android USB Device." I have tried everything to hard reset it but nothing works. My gut feeling tells me its hard-bricked but just figured I'd see what everyone thinks. Any input is appreciated!

No matter what i do, nothing shows on the screen, so no. Oddly,when its plugged into my computer, Windows makes noises when it connects and disconnects.

Problem resolved. Finally after hours of trying to hard reset it, it has booted into the bootloader. Back to stock Android we go!
