  1. Hello!
    I couldn’t do the hard reset on my smartphone so I’ve searched on others websites and I realized that in #Option 2 is missing a step.
    On step 4#, While doing No.3 steps, we will see LG Logo, at this time we can release Power Button (keep press Volume Down Button) and press and keep POWER BUTTON again.

    After this, you can continue doing the others steps.
    Thank you !

    • I accidentally unplugged the cable of my g2 mini from the USB port of PC while updating my firmware or software into lollipop. Now, I can’t open my g2 mini even doing the hard reset you mentioned. Can you help me? Is there any chances to fix it? Thanks.

      • Hi, the stop processing while flashing or upgrade the operating system at your LG G2 Mini can make your phone become bricks. You also have already done hard reset using hardware button, but your phone still can not turn ON. Please consult with LG authorize service center.

  2. i have tried option 2 hard reset so many times, when the factory data reset screen appears i select yes and then the next screen i select yes to start and factory reset processing appears for 3 seconds and then goes back to firmware updade locked screen.

    • Hi, usually after choose factory reset at normal standard rom, your LG G2 Mini will start to reformat several seconds and after finish it will reboot automatically and start your LG G2 Mini from beginning. But we are not sure why this problems happen. Maybe you should consult with LG authorize service center for more information.
