Have you tried using Odin to restore stock Gingerbread. ?

Odin (Return phone to Stock/Factory)

There are other images too. Just Odin the one that you want. If you have not tried this, please read the thread and instructions thoroughly .

I am downloading this file as I type :

DOWNLOAD EJ06 Gingerbread Stock Image made by Koumajutsu

http://bit.ly/AuxVgI

Try a different browser . You're not trying to downloading this to your phone are you ?

The link seems to be working fine . I've already got over half of it downloaded .

EDIT: I'm using Google Chrome and it just finished downloading without a hitch .

I just opened mine and it is all there . Are you using 7zip , winrar or winzip to open it ?

The problem is not in the download , it's something on your end .

Are you using a trial version of Winzip ?

Try downloading and opening it with 7zip .

Ok ,, here we go

See were it says OPS ? Select that and go to the folder that you just unzipped . You then select the SPHM820.ops file

You then select BOOT and select the SPHM820_EJ06_boot file

You then select Phone and select the SPHM820_EJ06_phone file

You then select PDA and select the SPHM820_EJ06_pda file

After you have done all that >>>>> SELECT START and let it run .

Make sure you have a zip program installed to your pc.
Winzip winrar etc.

If you are on stock browser you may need the download crutch apk. It will allow you to download normally. Not sure if it is on Market but it has been included on many custom Roms.

Dolphin HD downloads with no problems.
