Hello, first of all, I apologise if this has already been posted or solved.

I totally formatted my LG G Flex yesturday after my phone completely stopped holding charge (It held at about 14% while on charge from the mains over about a 2 hour period). To my suprise, my phone began charging almost the same speed as it did when I first purchased it. I eventually got round to putting a new password on my phone. I forgot this password and my g-mail account is not working to recover my phone. I have tried multiple times to 'Hard Reset' my phone but the process doesn't seem to work (After holding the power and the volume down button, releasing after the LG icon appears then holding the said buttons down again the LG icon just seems too keep re-appearing).

What else can I do, or can someone tell me a different menthod of resetting my phone or unlocking it.
(Added detail: Almost all of the settings are default).

Thanks!
Matt.

If you just need to reset the phone, go to Settings>General>Backup & reset

My data partition is messed up, so I'm not able to enter settings. But I need to be sure that data is clean.

The reason so many people are messing up their phones is due to testing with out a custom recovery for a while but now that's solved and due this phone being in such early development. The rest is due to jackasses not reading forums and just clicking on the first hot link they see " ohhhhh kitkat and root and TWRP , I wonder if it gives my phone wings so it can fly n $#!+.". No you idiot you have to submerge it in REDBULL everyone knows that.

That's why we have all messed our phones up a time or two. From testing out recoveries, ota's , to kernels. So that you my friend and the rest of our wonderful g flex community can have stuff to flash safely with a custom recovery. And yeah the subject of hard reset factory reset has been covered on several occasions . And every where I googles looking for it gave me the correct method as well as the discussions on here.

Happy flashing.
