Default [Q] 4X hd bootloop

I recently tried to install a custom recovery on my 4x but now it wont boot fully just to the point of flashing lg logo.
i tried to use the lg mobile support tool and recover phone but it only loads half way and says lost connection to phone
any ideas what i can do here.
thanks

If you're installing a custom recovery then you have unlocked your bootloader which means your warranty is already void (If LG decide that you have done something to cause the problem).

Im not aware of anyone bricking this (non-DEV version) phone, LG's download mode is pretty low level, the kdz packages also contain a boot loader so you would find it difficult to irreversibly brick this phone

It would be nice of you to tell how did you do it, so that if anyone else has the same problem can solve it with a quick search instead of starting another thread
