Hello, I have seem to soft-bricked my device. I was installing a ROM using TWRP (I forgot the version) and it was taking a very long time, then I stupidly shut-off my phone, and when I turned it on, it was stuck on the LG logo. I cannot boot into recovery using Power + Volume Up button, and I have no idea how to fix this!
Thank you.
EDIT: Got into recovery. The whole /system was wiped, I re-flashed CM10.2, now stuck in boot loop of the Cyanogen Mod boot logo,

It would appear that I did something very similar and is stuck at the logo boot loop. How were you able to get back into recovery?

Do you have the LG bootlogo coming up, if so try this:
Turn off phone, then when off, hold down power and volume down button until it reaches the LG logo and then release and hold it down again, if that doesn't work, when just hold it down until you see a screen that says something like: Hard reset/ factory reset. For me it took me to my recovery screen, where I just flashed a older ROM onto it. I then later flashed a recovery file. I hope this helps, and if you need it any clearer, just reply

Thanks for the reply! I was able to get into the factory reset but had to follow slightly different instructions. The way I've seen it on most wiki sites is that you hold Volume Down and Power button at the same time until the LG logo shows up, then release them and press them down again. This never worked for me.

What I had to do was hold Volume Down and Power button until the LG logo shows up, then release ONLY the Power button while still holding the Volume Down button, then press the Power button again. This method got me into the factory reset consistently and was able to get back into recovery.

Best,
Colin

LG G2 VS980 not booting, system folder permission is changed accidentally
My LG G2 VS980 phone was rooted by myself. It was a factory unlocked phone. Then using Root Browser by JRummy apps i have removed some system apps and just for a try i have changed the permission settings of system app folder to ro. Then on reboot my phone was stuck, it turns ON and after LG and Verizon logo, says "unfortunately, phone has stopped" and i could see some basic apps such as file manager, calculator etc. but i cannot use the phone at all. It is stuck. How to get back to the original factory unlocked condition? Any ideas plz!
