    Boot into Custom Recovery... On my LG Optimus One, I have Nandroid. Do you have the same custom recovery on your phone?

    From custom recovery, you can reflash your phone easily...

    you followed the procedure given in XDA? if yes, it states that Gingerbread theme is for G3 running Android 2.2 only. look here.

    well as there no other option, try install Froyo or you can go for some custom Gingerbread roms (if avl).

    you are stuck. can't factory reset mobile. so forget it. install a custom rom straightway. also if you are new to Android, you really should have asked for some guide or backup plan before taking such an odd step.

    they don't have Custom Recovery. but may try clockworkmod recovery. but most use a PC software. can't remember the name. some opin or so.

    i see you already have created a thread in XDA about your problem: need urget help!! stuck at bootscreen

    If anyone stuck on bootscreen or in any situation in which can't factory reset.Just setup Abdroid SDK and open cmd and type "adb reboot recovery" (without quotes), do a data wipe and reboot. This will fix all your problems....
