When you use the tool you got to put your phone in fastboot by holding the volume up button while inserting the usb call into it.

I read somewhere tracfone had lg leave out all the boot options except factory reset.

I tried fastboot, and recovery mode. No luck.

I believe they can be flashed back onto the phone. Just not when its bricked.

Great phone. Tracfone just seems to lock em tight.

Only had this thing 3 weeks. First android/smartphone experience. Still learning these phones.
I now know these devices brick fairly simple.

I need to learn more about these before I brick another one.

There is a lot to learn about the phone. And even more to learn about android.

Most phones don't brick this easily, I guess Verizon/Tracfone don't want people messing with their service so they have to lock down their phones super tight, and LG from my experience usually does things really well. The first L34C I had I bricked after removing the OTA system update apk (stupid move) and now it's impossible to get into recovery. Just bootloops endlessly.

At least it was only a $10 phone... Honestly if you're gonna mess with this make sure you have a recovery installed that you can regularly access first. Really making any small changes to stock is just asking for trouble with this phone..

Just got my new phone.  ;D
The flashlight doesn't work.

I'm worried about rooting this one.

I've had both an l41c and l34c rooted for a while, it's safe so long as you're not actively deleting things in the root directory.

There's a guide around to set up a custom recovery that seems to be working %100, you should root your phone and then do that immediately (and then make a backup of the stock ROM) if you feel like deleting stuff. I got a list of bloat safe to delete listed in the l34c forum, though really the 1gb RAM is more than enough.

I know that you you are probably over this thread but I am in the exact same position as you were with the Ultimate 2. I was wondering, what exactly did you tell Tracfone because I want to pull it off like you did. Thanks!

You just have to make something realistic up and play along with then and just follow what they tell you to do. That will get you a free replacement ☺

Yeah I bricked mine to just called tracfone and they are sending out a replacement. My one only worry is that they find out I tried flashing the rom and send me something. I don't know maybe I'm just paranoid

TracFone doesn't care. I have had that happen before they just sent me a new phone.

Yeah that's good too know. Luckily I called them days before my 1 year warranty expires.
