Hi there
I've unfortunately gotten a faulty devices and I'm suppose to get it switched with a new device. (another story about not being able to make calls, scrathing sound etc)

I've rooted my phone and it worked flawlessly, but today I wanted to un-root and would install the apps i've removed with root explorer. Therefore I downloaded a system/ dump and tried restoring the "app" directory in system/ with root explorer. This resulted in random force closes
Then I used "adb" su to copy all the app files from sdcard (where I copied the files from the dump) to the system/app directory. After a while it was done and I type reboot... [Bricked?]

Now the phone keeps rebooting. Getting the LG logo with sound and afterwards the LG logo with progress bar... then rebooting...

I need help

Try to hard reset, turn off your phone press volume - and power.

Thanks for the response... When I press power+volume down, the "unpacking box with android person" appears for a 20 seconds or so... the reboots and I'm back to rebooting constantly

When I try pressing volume down and home key/returnkey I can get in to S/W update mode, but I cant get the ADB to work?

Other suggestions?

That's why its a bad idea to delete stock apps in the first place when we don't have custom recovery yet.

It wasnt a problem when deleting them, and the phone was alright... it was when restoring through ADB it went wrong... I need a suggestion to get it fixed not an "I-told-you-so"

Yeah... sorry... i was kinda an ass.
But sadly I'm all out of ideas.

Maybe if we had a service manual (not user manual)

Can you connect to phone by adb?
You need to clear dalvik cache.

Hi Doc
No... unfortunately I cant get ADB to work....
I can get into S/W update mode, but ADB doesnt work. I can get the Factory reset to begin too, but it just gets into the reboot circle again.

If there was just a way to get into ADB mode I could push every single file again

Damn... I hope it isn't bricked for good

If HR doesn't work. Just return for warrenty.

Cause if it reboots that a corrupted boot.img
Try to see if you can get alist of apps installed on phone.
If superuser.apk is not in there, return it for warrenty.

In one of the reboots I think I had a glimse of a connection thru ADB acouple of times. I had approx. 10 seconds before rebooting again.

Did a list... and guess I saw a dir called "root" but didnt have time to get into the system/app directory...

If we can't find a solution I think I'll try to return the phone and hope for a new one without any question asked
