If you see your L5 does not start the system, it is the LG logo, follow a tutorial below according to your case.
Note that this guide helps only in cases of softbrick. In cases of hardbrick, I recommend you go to a technical assistance.
If your device is in the boot animation forever:
Probably you should have modified the system and is very easy to recover. Just look for the ROM that you were using normally occur before it and reinstall.
If your device is not out of the LG logo and/or not go to recovery:
1 - Download the drivers here and install: http://depositfiles.org/files/8nbpilxsh
2 - Download the stock ROM here: http://lg-phone-firmware.com/index.php?id_mod=12
Download according to your device!
3 - Go to the download mode.
If the baseband is V10, remove the battery and insert it again (don’t turn it on!). Press and hold volume up button and volume down buttons and connect the device to your computer while holding the buttons.
If the baseband is V20, remove the battery and insert it again (don’t turn it on!). Press and hold volume down an connect the device to your computer while holding the buttons.
If it was not for the recovery, the stronger hold buttons! Worked with me
4 - Download the KDZ updater here http://www.unclenet.de/files/KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.7z
The file contains msxml.msi. Install it first before running the KDZ updater
5 - Start the program.
Leave the options as follows:
Phone Mode: DIAG
KDZ file: navigate to the file location. KDZ downloaded in step 2 and select.
6 - Click on "launch software update".
The process will take a while. No way, do not disconnect the device from your computer!!!
7 - If still not start, go to the recovery and format
To go to the recovery, will depend on the installed ROM. Each ROM is different. I do not know how to enter the recovery of all ROMs.
When you go to the stock recovery, will automatically format.
(Special case) If your screen looks like this:
Do as if you were standing in the logo of LG. However, in this case, will not appear on the screen written this in download mode.
To go in download mode, you will have to have plenty of patience to get out of this situation.
Hold the volume up and connect the PC;
Hold the volume down and connect the PC;
Hold the volume down and up at the same time and connect to PC.
You should try one of these at a time and wait about 10 seconds. While the screen does not look like this, keep trying and holding the stronger buttons.
Make sure it is connected. Go on the control panel, Hardware and Sound, Devices and Printers. If not appear, uninstall the drivers in the device manager and reinstall it.
After that, you just have to install the ROM on KDZ updater.
