so the lg flash tool fails almost right away because the erase command fails, the only way i can get adb to talk to the phone is when i choose to sideload from adb in the stock recovery options, no other adb command will even run, they all say closed. sideloading fails because it cant mount anything.
is it possibly this is actual hardware failure?
i know im a noob here, but responses arent as frequent as i had hoped. would it be wrong to repost this in the general g2 q&a section instead of here in the verizon q&a? at this point its less about saving my data and more about not being beaten if it isnt actually a hardware failure.
