I was recently trying to update a driver on my laptop for my LG optimus one p500 k phone. It was updatign the driver while my phone was connected onto the computer, then it went into a yellowish green screen and in the middle it said "emergency mode." At the time i thought that this was part of the update but my phone has been in this "emergency mode" ever since and i am not able to view anything else but this greenish screen. What do I do to fix it!! Please help

Have you tried while the phone is on taking out the battery and SIM Card for a minute or so then replace them and try it again.

Unfortunately, the only way around this is to perform a hard reset. If you've performed a backup of your device using the Android Recovery Utility, you should be able to restore your device back to normal. If not, you will lose everything (i.e. contact info, music, pictures, apps and so on).

Press and hold the Home + Volume Up/Down + Power buttons simultaneously. The LG P500 will begin the reset process immediately and will reboot itself reverting back to factory default settings.

This next method will allow you to boot into the Android Recovery Utility (ARU). This method is only useful if you've made a backup using the ARU and want to restore a backup. You can also scroll down to wipe data/factory reset and perform a hard reset.

The Volume Up/Down keys will allow you to scroll through the menu, while the Power button acts as an Enter or selection key.

Press and hold the Home + Volume Down + Power buttons simultaneously for approximately ten seconds, you should now see the Android Recovery Utility menu.
