  2. hi santosh, can you help, i followed these instructions, now what happens is my phone boots up, and when it gets to the start screen saying swipe glass to continue it switches itself off. then automatically switches on then off endlessly


  3. If you do this though, it wont restore the kernel though will it?

    Im sure I’ve tried this in the past and the kernel had the word “root-” at the start, surely that’s a slight giveaway that it was previously rooted?

    kies just says (your device does not support software upgrading via kies)
    i have not done any think to the phone as in flashing to or illegally installing firmware sooo please help
    all the best


    1. I think you need to go with the ebay receipt and claim for a service first. The other thing you can try is to do a factor reset that would restore your phone to original condition. And then try using Kies. If nothing works then do think of flashing but that would make you ineligible for any warranty.    Santosh Singh Chennai, Tamilnadu IN Mobile: +91 9962205273 san1378@gmail.com http://about.me/santosh.singh
