What you mean with black ? Black screen ?
And what was the last you doing.
Are you tried to restore the FW with the LG mobile Tool.

Ok. I rooted stock, then downloaded lg update. This resulted in a boot loop to cwm. Then - big mistake - I installed a cwm boot fix for a lg handy from cwm. This surely screwed up boot entry. After that it is black no matter what I try.

I flashed this: http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-...-bootloop.html

Yeah, f***. I should have followed the rules of survival. You are in a dangerous situation, stay calm, do not rush. Now think twice, no fast solution. Which is the logical course of action? Too late. I was downloading recovery from LG Mobile support tool 1,5GB, thought, lets see if I can have a faster solution...

What is LG Recovery Program?

I think the only thing helping would be a jig.

My gut instinct is that a jig could get you into download mode but I have no idea what pins to use.

Sent from my LG-V500 using xda app-developers app
