Hello! Yesterday I was putting a custom recovery on my LG p500, and as I am a noob in phones and everything else I fcked up something, and now i have the ''fastboot mode started'' screen. Now, on this page, i have downloaded all the things listed there.

Now, my computer recognizes the phone, it doesn't open the ''removable disk F'' as it has always, but it says it is recognized.

WHen i downloaded Android SDK, on the page they say I should have a directory on disk C, but I DONT KNOW HOW TO INSTALL ANDROID SDK!! When i click on SDK manager it just opens a window similiar to cmd prompt, and then the window close after some seconds.. Please help me!!

Also, on that link there is the cmd program open and he says what to write to unbrick it, but I don't understand anything about it!! Please someone help me I am mad!!!

Instead of messing with the entire Android SDK, which isn't needed BTW, why not use Android Flash Recovery to install another recovery? Link for Android Flash Recovery ( AFR ) is in my signature. It's just a simple UI for the fastboot executable from the Android SDK. No command windows to deal with and nothing to type. Point and click...

As per you problem with the SDK, Android can't find your Java installation. Did you install Java 6 or 7 SDK as well?
