Ok now that's a good start...but I guess it's not enough
On the desktop, do you have the little android which says 'Tips' or something like that? I think if you go on it, it might work out.
Let me know if it doesn't work and I'll see if there is any other option I can think of
I did like you said and now i'm even further yet always something has to go wrong. Now i see "set up your google account" but every 5 seconds pops up "sorry! the application dialer has stopped unexpectedly. please try again" and then i have to enter pin code again.... this happens even if i skip setting up account. Funny thing is that now i don't have "settings" i appdrawer
