Hello, i bricked my lg optimus 2x by somehow, and i've read some on the forums and it keeps popping up that NVflash is the way to go. But the problem is nothing happens when i do it No reboot etc... It do react and say: S/W upgrade...

Also when i try to boot phone nothing happens, it is all black and no reponse... So what should i do ? I got no NAndroid backup etc

I haven't tried nvFlash, but Smartflash sure worked for me. (Verified it 10 hours ago as I just soft-bricked my O2X as well. )

You may follow instructions here.

All of u is wrong. You have to use the method when you're holding vol up and vol down together. If u wait 'til I come home I can give you a link how its done.

The vol up + down method is used for NVflashing.

I used Smartflash so I didn't need to do that.

@random: Aside for checking for LG USB drivers, make sure that you have the battery pulled out, and you are plugging the phone to the PC with the volume down pressed.

smartflash
but it doesnt react to the volume down : P since what i've understand is that it should pop up a the LG bootup thingy
And it doesnt.... The only thing the phone reacts to is when i try to NVflash... but the nvflash seems to fail all the time by some reason :S in the middle of everything
