try flashing a new radio version

By anthonyburnsred October 03, 2010 06:09 PM

lol did you install HSPL first? I had that same problem and realized i forgot which one


By jonash97 September 29, 2010 07:14 PM

i've tried running the installer and it starts off ok but the progress bar on my pc and phone stay at zero then the program stops and starts the recovery? anyone know what i'm doing wrong?

Hey jonash97 i was having the same issue, turns out you need to flash a file first. Check out this website from xda. Biggest thing to look out for is if you have the 512 version or 1024. I'll keep checking to see if you have any questions, good luck!!!


By esparza2k October 01, 2010 03:20 AM

Hey Judeh, sorry I am new to this, but I got it i had to flash the spl. Also which radio do you use, or which one do you recommend? Thanks in advance....
