### whos still having trouble with a V20 stuck in the firmware screen ( like me) and I have a theory so I'm posting this prior to attempting it but someone please let me know if I have this wrong.
I read this post on the first page of the thread by someone whos name I've forgotten now (sorry) but they wrote....
--------------- edit: Hrm. Seems to have cropped up again. Time to continue the battle *sigh*
edit 2: Got it! Thankfully I had a Win7 laptop that I was able to fire up. The HTC Aria's fastboot hardware ID is "USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0FFF&REV_0100" which means the vvvvpppprrrr is 0BB40FFF0100. So follow the instructions above but using the key of 0BB40FFF0100 -----------------------
and based on this --- my V20 hardware ID reads "USB\VID_0000&PID_0002\5&2BF451F8&0&2" or rather the instance path does and using this I should be able to correct the value of the binary string to fit this corresponding ID for the VVVVPPPPRRRR correct? so value will be "0000000252BF451f02" ????
Im making the key and binary value now and I'll repost results later
I'm so invested in this phone both in time and sheer ignorance of what else I can do to get this damn thing out of the firmware screen.
* I've tried loading the "LG drivers from both LG composite device and VZW versions" to no avail.
*On a side note, tapping the power button brings up a "download mode" sub screen where is searches for wifi connections and after finding mine I went ahead and tried to connect 1- normally 2- removing my wifi password 3- using the WPS button to connect, all of which ended in "connection failed" so can someone explain the actual purpose of this option if there is no way to connect? or am I finding the wrong signal so to speak>?
I'll gladly post all of my results or screen shots, (all failed so far) using ADB, uppercut, LGUP, odin, placing TOT files on the SD card, plus a few absolutely embarrassing methods but had to try something.
Please tell me someone knows a way out of this
