Lg sunset L33L boot logo stuck & kill switch
« on: June 17, 2017, 02:05:17 am »
My good buddy who lives next door has the LG logo stuck screen issue after he let someone borrow it a short time. He can get to the 'disabled by kill switch ' screen. But thats it. All the tech talk and acronyms only make it harder for him...and me. His phone is still in original....operating....program running it. Not customized in any way. Unless the dork that borrowed it did something...help me help my buddy please!? You guys are awesome

 Hey, SuperFreak !  My handle here is Killswitch and no, I didn't disable your Sunset !   Just wanted to make that perfectly clear.  I'm currently Developing the LG Destiny which is the big brother GSM version of your CDMA (Verizon)  version and, as a Rocket Scientist, there's no optimistic overtones going to be offered by myself.  This seems to be a McAfee Security issue and, I do NOT see eye/eye with McAfee on ANY level. It's my understanding that you won't be able to do a simple Hard Reset on this fone but, you can try it anyway.  Turn fone off.  Push and HOLD the lower Volume button while you push the Power button ON and release it until you hear it vibrate or see the LG Logo screen. Then, push and hold the Power button again until you reach a Factory Data Reset screen.  Use the Volume buttons for  YES twice and, with any luck, it'll Factory Reset your Sunset and wipe the fone back to complete Stock.  Maybe Ryan ( the Admin)  hasw a zippedy-doo-dah answer but, I foresee a MAJOR problem here that will require you to be the proven Owner of the Sunset and, you'll need to interface directly with McAfee on this one. This is what you get with Tracfone.  Rocket Science.  But, I don't know spit about this issue and, I would encourage Ryan to step in and lend his level of expertise. He's a little more savvy than even myself. In the meantime, search for answers in the direction of McAfee Security.  Oh, my Gawd !  That's NOT good !  But, in the meantime, have a goodday from Phila PA.

Thanks killswitch! Maybe i can get a job working for yall since we seem to be educated alike. But i would appreciate Mr.Bossmans input too. They are pretty cheap phones so i guess he doesnt lose alot of money on the issue. Just wut he didnt cloud. I do have a little computer experience...up to windows xp... im assuming to do the McAfee trick, i need to hook up to my puter and download sum...drivers...transfer anything...if anything...is still on his phone, to my puter, then access wutever i must access thru McAfee on my puter?

Never seen that error before, but I might be able to provide some insight on how to fix it.

Try this method: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28939

It's will work on your phone as it basically the same thing as the Leon.

That is really the only thing I can think of.

  Oh, Damn !   You've got a Hard Brick on your hands.  Something that even Ryan (or, myself )  would probably fail attempting to Disable the Kill Switch.  One of the more difficult ways of totally Unlocking this Sunset is being done by something called an  Octopus Box  which, is very similar to a method of reprogramming stuff called  JTAGging.  I'm VERY familar with doing JTAG and,  I would bet serious money that the Admin at the site I'm a part of WOULD be able to connect his JTAG and, write Code to totally UNLOCK every Lock that LG has put into place  ( even the BootLoader which has defeated me for several months ) .  However, this is the equivalent of Frankensteining your Sunset and, doesn't come cheap.  However, there ARE a few magic tricks I might be able to pony up before anything like that becomes necessary . I'm at the point where I actually enjoy restoring Hard Bricks back to normal for shits/giggles.  If ya wanna send it to me, let me know and, I'll give ya my Email Address and, will explain a little further what's up.  You CAN ship that badboy to Phila PA  or less than  $5 bucks.  I'll do it on the cheaps  ( 40 - 50  bucks ) .  This IS a **** Brick.  But, I'm fairly good at what I can do. let me know at your nearest convenience. Goodday .
