Ok Try this link called "How to Unbrick or Restore the LG G2 ATT Version"
ok, so doing that will probably wipe the phone clean. I am skeptical about trying the OTG cable option you suggested before because (if I read correctly), the phone needs to be in a specific USB mode for that to work, right? The cable costs $3 or so, so it's not an expensive gamble. Ultimately, I want to try to sell it, but I want to clean it before and i'd like to recover the files I have in there.

Ok clapper/anyone
I ordered an otg cable, connected a mouse and I was miraculously able to navigate the lock screen. However, I was not able to get past the exchange pin screen. The mouse disappeared at that screen and the light on the mouse turned off. The battery was at 3% so maybe that was the culprit; it is now charging.
Should I seee the mouse in that screen? If not, I am done with this journey and I have to kiss my files goodbye and I factory wipe?


DISREGARD, it was the low battery. I am navigating all over this beach.
Thanks a lot!!!!
