okay im following the unbricking guide in the General forum. i have an at&t p930. had cwm and flashed a rom but didnt format /system. thus i bricked my phone, boot loop galore. i have all the necessary files. everything with v10f goes great and when the phone reboots i get the pink LG Optimus LTE boot screen. only problem is that it freezes there, the candy cane loader stops moving and it just chills there forever... please please please help me get this thing going. its a company phone and i have no option but to fix it myself.

I am right there with you-absolutely nothing under the sun has worked. Finally got the updater to work and am stuck on the Optimus LTE screen just like you...even tried two computers, tried doing the .kdz about 12 times now, reboot, etc...stuck

Did you flash the V10f or the V10i? The only v10f I could find was a small file...well much smaller than the i. I've tried flashing the v10i about 15 times now with no luck...it obviously flashes as the boot logo shows up but thats where it stops.

Also when I get it to go into recovery it has the open box and arrow with the android guy and stays on that screen for about 10 seconds before it goes onto the LTE screen where it stalls.

Does that help anyone?

same thing for me exactly. my v10f file was like 400 mb, my v10i was 350ish. ive tried em both, neither work. same thing for me when i go into recovery as well. on the thread for debricking the last poster said he found the correct v10f file and will upload it tonight, maybe itll work being that the hotfile server or whatever Manillion used doesnt work.

The SU640 ROM will not work on the Nitro HD, much the Nitro HD ROM will not work on a SU640. I found this out earlier this evening.

Might you be able to share a link to the appropriate kdz then? I think we've exhausted the resources currently available especially considering megaupload is dead. May the schwartz be with you...

If the v10i is rootable now, I'll just update my guide with a link to download the .kdz directly from LG (I'd been having trouble reuploading the v10f .kdz anyway because my internet connection is flaky). What I'm gathering from all this craziness is that there may be bad .kdz's floating around because the unbrick method I used has eventually worked for pretty much everyone, albeit with some teeth pulling for a few people :s. Either that or people are flashing the phone wrong, but I'll give you guys the benefit of the doubt lol. I'll be updating the guide with screenshots provided by [email protected] in a bit.

Is there anyway to format whatever might be on my phone? As in do whatever I can to start as fresh as possible?

The best way to reformat everything and start over is to just reflash the .kdz from download mode. But since I know you've probably done that a couple times, it's possible your .kdz is corrupted.

Any other options? Ive redownloaded numerous times from different sources (even lg) and still no cigar...just doesn't make sense...

Got it-thanks everyone for your help. I didn't have CDMA selected in the R&D test tool-straightened that out and am off and running. Thanks again!

I would only download it from LG or if someone has the v10f they downloaded from LG.
