Question [Q] G2 stuck at boot logo no download mode no recovery device manager wont recognize

ok i see lots of threads about G2 stuck at LG logo with no download mode etc but none specific to my situation so figured id start my own.

my phone is stuck at the lg logo when i try to boot, when i try to go to download mode it shows the blue dots but windows, flash tool, nothing will recognize the phone as being plugged in, and not even the little sound windows makes when a usb device is plugged in, its been a little while so i cant remember EXACTLY what the last thing i did that bricked it was, something i did on command line with aboot something, i can try to dig it up if absolutely necessary but it would take some digging...when i try to boot into recovery it freezes at the "loading recovery screen, when i try to go to download mode it sticks at the blue dots and wont respond to anything, when i try to do a factory hard data reset it says "hard reset processing" or something similar then freezes there, ive tried reinstalling the drivers, using different pcs, read through countless threads, but have had no luck, any ideas what i can do to unbrick my brand new g2?? thanks in advance

This is what i would do....looks like your cable works, looks like you know how to get into Download and Recovery Mode. You have to get it to be detected, if it boots into Download mode it should work. Try re-installing the drivers.

Here is the ZVC tot file if u dont have it: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2702422

Your download mode is broken. The laf partition needs fixed.
I'm looking for a way to do it from recovery.

Well that sucks. I have the same problem and I just need to get back into download mode. Is there a key combo for DL mode?

with the phone off (completely), hold volume button (up i believe), and plug usb into computer. This should bring up download mode. If volume up doesnt work, try volume down. If you get just to the dots, then your download mode is broken.
