I modified and replaced the original framework-res.apk on my LG DoublePlay (C729) and now it keeps bootlooping on T-Mobile logo. Even the recovery mode didn't help - the recovery mode displays only a unpacking icon and then it reboots the phone. I have the original framework-res.apk but I'm not able to get it into my phone. USB connection with PC is stable. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

If the USB connection is stable, try using adb push to push the apk in the right place. –  A--C Dec 9 '12 at 22:54
    
The command "adb devices" returns an empty list. Do I need a specific driver for it? –  Drejon Dec 9 '12 at 23:29
    
Normally the adb drivers are included with your phone, one thing I did overlook is that USB debugging needs to be enabled ahead of time. –  A--C Dec 9 '12 at 23:36
    
Well, it was enabled, but the recovery mode restored the settings to default. –  Drejon Dec 10 '12 at 0:07
    
@A--C That is incorrect. ADB drivers are separate .exe files - IE drivers that are needed by Windows to use the ADB interface. –  Liam W Dec 10 '12 at 14:37

  1. Have a backup of your system in case of problems.

  2. Root your tablet if not already rooted.

  3. Install a file manager with system r/w capability.

  4. Copy the framework-res.apk from wherever you have it stored to \system. Do not copy the file to \system\framework at this point or you will cause the system to bootloop.

  5. Change the file permissions to rw-r--r--.

  6. Move framework-res.apk from \system to \system\framework, letting it overwrite the original. You will have been successful if the phone does not instantly reboot upon copying.

  7. Completely power down your phone, then power it back up.

The user is using a phone not a tablet, they are unable to install any apps and/or root the phone because it is bootlooping and they also said that they can't push or anything because of root issues. –  ZnewmaN Feb 12 '13 at 20:43
