Default Bricked Lg p930

Hey swetness can u plz help with this:

i bricked my LG p930 a month ago by replacing sim cards, i have looked through this forum for methods to unbrick it, followed hereric's method and got it back to stock ICS and rooted it, but the device keeps rebooting randomly every now and then. i found in a different forum that this is will be solved by flashing a new baseband firmware but i can't do it since the cwm i downloaded from play store is old. will your method work for me? if so please provide me with the details on how to proceed with it since i'm a newbie in this world. thank you!

I have P936 with 2.3.6 and I can't root it by any methods... I tried everything... If I'll update it to ICS can I root mine device, install CWM and then CM 10.1 by this metod FOR SURE?? I'm confused because of posts I read in this topic.

Yes....only the original version of Gingerbread can be rooted. ICS IS the way to go.

Baseband won't do it....some Nitros just cannot handle ICS, but are stable with Gingerbread. What version of ICS, you might try 100% stock?

Hey Swetnes thx for replying, well i got back to Gingerbread using hererics method but it's still rebooting, random shutting, and freezing sometimes. i think it just got bricked once for all unless you can recommend something...

This might be a long shot, but have you tried a different sd memory card or SIM card? Just to eliminate those as possibilities.
