    I have an old LG EnV2 (VX9100) that is stuck in a bootloop. I will make two things clear now:
    1. I do NOT really use this cell phone anymore, so I am NOT interested in asking the carrier or manufacturer for help. The warranty is expired anyways.
    2. This is NOT a smartphone. Do not mistake it for one.
    3. I do NOT care about any of the data that is/was stored on this phone.


    With that being said, I will detail the status of this phone. When power is applied, the phone displays the Verizon Wireless logo for a few seconds. Then, it goes black again and repeats the process until power is removed. This happens regardless of whether it is started by plugging it into a computer or started using the power button. There is one other thing I can make this phone do. If I plug the phone into power with the battery removed and the outside "5" button held down, it will display the VZW logo, "Downloading...", and the LG Electronics logo, all on a white background. I found instructions on some other site for using the LGPNST to flash new firmware to the phone while it is in this mode. However, as far as I remember, this utility only offered to copy the phone book, not to actually fix the firmware.

    Can anyone help?

    P.S. If I put this topic in the wrong forum, I am very sorry.

    It sounds like something is wrong with the OS. I would try loading the latest firmware onto the phone: How-to - Update LG enV2 (vx9100) to latest firmware - V07
    (unfortunately it's not exactly an easy process, but it's probably what verizon would've done if you brought it to them 4 years ago)

    Thanks for the reply.

    My phone is stuck in a bootloop unless I use emergency mode. I now understand that LGNPST 1.2 store won't actually flash firmware to phones in this mode. Instead, it appears I would need the lab version to do this. Also, V07 of the firmware can't be flashed unless the phone has V6 already. Where can I get v6 of the firmware?

    Eh, that's a good question. I don't remember ever seeing v6 anywhere.
