Default Lg Optimus V Emergency Recovery Mode Walkthrough

So I'm planning on testing partition sizes and I want to start w/ stock. Good thing is I haven't found a good walkthrough for using the Emergency Recovery mode, so I will tell you my experience. If it works great, if not you can learn from me. I have a Nandroid backup, and a Titanium Backup. I feel prepared and confident.

I have KDZ (KDZ_FW_UPD_EN) and the stock cab (VM670ZV4_13.S4_13.P61007)

I've read shabby walk-through-esque deals...

but it's disenchanting how it starts with,

"NO ONE should try this. No one. Not ever. Donít do this. This will brick your phone."

but again I feel confident in my abilities now so let's see how it goes
Battery out; Power + vol down + back (very hard to push and plug in usb, but it's possible)

I'm not interested in shaking the phone.

After win 7's driver notification sound goes off a few times and disabling the LGE CDMA USB Modem in device manager, I watched to make sure it didn't re-enable after the drop/add driver sound. It's all good.

CDMA pulldown in KDZ wasn't pulling anything, tried 3GQTC and nothing popped up. When I selected "Read Phone Info" in 3GQTC info was pulled up then KDZ locked up, but I saw it said the battery didn't have enough charge, so I put the batter back in.

Checked device manager again....all good.
So just to test I shook phone vigorously in CDMA Emergency, CDMA CS_Emergency, 3GQCT CS_Emergency, and 3GQCT Emergency.

Just to see what happened I tried to use Lg's software updater....no bueno, couldn't communicate...no harm no foul...

And so then, while the battery was out, the usb cable came unhooked. I gasped, but after turning phone on all is good.

I will try again soon.

For now, the firmware put out by LG doesn't load in any of the updaters. It is assumed to be broken.

Default Started on something else, I'll come back later

I really want to figure it out, but I'll come back to it later.
