  1. Everything worked as outlined. I got the factory reset statement, the robot, then the LG symbol, then it froze up. nothing else. No Joy!

    1. Hi Don. I am sorry you had no luck with the reset procedure from your Lg. If the phone is damaged (inside, the flash memory that contains the Android OS files, or by any chance you did delete or modify a critical system file), the reset procedure will not be able to conclude. There is no “hidden copy” of a factory default Android OS inside any phone: The reset procedure just erases your custom configuration, data and files, leaving the OS in vanilla new state.
