Lightbulb [Guide]Restore to Stock "Bricked" "Unlocked" LG Optimus G f180,E97x

The problem starts when you unlock F180 Bootloader with "freegee":

Unlock the bootloader
:

There are 2 ways:
Method 1: Unlock the bootloader
http://www.mediafire.com/download/kz...1.2_edited.zip
Advantages:
- enough fastboot functions: Start, Power Off, Recovery mod, Restart Bootloader
- Easy on the function keys
-Cons:
- To Relock, just you have to flash KDZ

Method 2: Unlock by app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gee_free&hl=en
Advantages:
- Add.
- Can be easily Relock by app.
Cons:
- Right to Recovery through app (on Stock Rom & 975).
- Loss of function fastboot that this very important function.
- When crashes, not able to Recovery by pressing hard.

It is recommended to use the first way.
on E975, E970, E97.x unlock, select KT or SKT. Because E975 and the S / K has Same bootloader unlock.

i have already faced this situation to unlock bootloader with freegee and stuck with google logo and fastboot mode

not even KDZ flash working, always result in fastboot or KDZ tool stop working. also tried different KDZ and flashing Tools

Tried "TeenyBin" ,not success but get twrp working, then flash CM10 as suggested but got this

Subsystem Crash!
------------------------------------------------------------
DemiGod Crash Handler : Subsystem Crash! : External_modem (Undefined error)

Press key to choose Dload Mode/Reboot/Fastboot.
1) Volume Up : Dload Mode.
2) Volume Down : Reboot.
3) Power : Fastboot.

------------------------------------------------------------

to solve this have to remove sim card and change baseband in TWRP using ADB
then perform a hardreset.

now the device comes in life again

but you find the device is not properly working may be sim or gprs or wifi or something else.

now have to unlock bootloader again by adb with this method

Everything was done witouht problems using nand back up with CWM
But later I realiced that M5 was out and, once again tried to install it but I couldnt

Dont know what happen but now while device is turning on, or trying to go into recovery or dowload mode screen is BLACk.
Device is working properly, I mean I turn it off/on and no problem. Just cant enter fastboot, recovery or download mode.

I tried a couple method to go back to stock using KDZ but proceess stop and nothing, just keep pressing power buttom and phone reboot (just black screen during the process)

Please, any ideas/suggestions


O no please.
I follow method one, I get succes message and now my wifi refuses to turn on. WTF

Update 2:
Now Im screwed. I tried to install another recover with Rom Manager and now phone refuses to turn on.
Something is detected in the pc while conecting it but I have only a black screen

Please what can I do??

It appears to be that certain functions are sensitive to low power states.

Without downloading the fauxclock app, I took out the SIM from the phone. This allows the phone to work well enough without crashing due to the modem being initialized in a low power state.

Got into performance and set the minimum clock at 1000MHz (for now).

Phone works again.

Default Recovery mode only

Hello,

I have F180L, I upgraded it to 4.4.2 kitkat then rooted it with freegee and installed cwm via freegee. then booted into recovery and installed Sling 2.2 kitkat. every thing was working great until I factory reset the phone. Now, the phone is stuck in cwm. It starts and boots into cwm . even if I turn off the phone and plug in the power, the phone boots in cwm. it is not even charging because of the led light which is always on in cwm. I have tried everything but nothing is happening ....
someone plz help me and suggest me something to charge and unbrick my phone

thx for post my friend i have e975 i use freege and mako unlock .I used the first two months trouble-ROM but i have Subsystem crash error.... (external modem ) and i back to stock kdz but no root +bootloader unlocked i use my rom but I found something new
----------------------------------------------------
This problem can easily be solved, I spent 20+ hours on researching this, it's not an operator problem, but a common problem with both the Optimus G and the Nexus 4.

What causes it? Extreme low power states of the processor, some modems are too sensitive for this kind of deeeeeeep sleep (depending on production batch). These states are called C0 (WiFi) until C3 (complete power collapse).

Disable C2 and C3 and enable C0 and C1 and voila, it will never happen again

How? Buy and install Fauxclock, I don't know how to do it manually nor I couldn't find any other app.

You can thank me, but you should also thank Faust because he brought me this solution. Joying all the custom roms for months without problems

---------------------------------------------

x_justin :
No some power state of the processor, linux terms. Nothing to do with core numbers. As far as I know the only app that can change this is FauxClock from the play store, but it's worth the money. Just disable C2 and C3, it's still good for the battery. Stock roms from LG also have this disabled.

C0 Operational state. CPU fully turned on.

C1 First idle state. Stops CPU main internal clocks via software. Bus interface unit and APIC are kept running at full speed.

C2 Stops CPU main internal clocks via hardware. State where the processor maintains all software-visible states, but may take longer to wake up through interrupts.

C3 Stops all CPU internal clocks. The processor does not need to keep its cache coherent, but maintains other states. Some processors have variations of the C3 state that differ in how long it takes to wake the processor through interrupts.

Hey thanks a ton bro! I just had a few questions before using the first method to unlock my phones bootloader.
Is this method safe? Has it been tested enough yet? I dont want to use FreeGee again (soft bricked my phone the first time around using it).
If yes, can you please tell the steps to unlock using the 1st method?
Thnks again!
