    Okay I put the 5 files on my sd card. I booted into clockwork mod and I pressed back and restore but there is no option for "nand restore". So I pressed "restore" and it says no files are found.

    ?????

    Im having the same problem.

    I copy and pasted that folder name but it doesnt let you post slashes.

    so i just named it nandroid and still nothing happened.

    use this method instead and after you finish you will have to install CWM again.

    Fastboot Method
    (Note:This method will work even if the phone will not start or go into recovery)



    Download the Following Package:
    MetroPCSStock Recovery Package with Scripts
    678041208774eab0aed1005f287d71ab MetroStockRecover.7z

    1)Attach phone to USB
    2)Power Phone Off
    3)Enter Fastboot (End Call + Volume Down - while phone turns on)
    4)Run script relevant to your OS
    metroPCSStock-linux.sh
    metroPCSStock-mac.sh
    metroPCSStock-windows.bat
    5) Your phone will automatically reboot

    Thx for trying to help nutmeg. When the black screen flashes on my comp does that mean I ran the file correctly?

    pull your battery for 10 sec put battery back in and connect the usb cable and run metroPCSStock-windows. did extract the whole folder to your desktop?

    if you have yahoo, add nutt0606@yahoo.com

    i was trying to see what v of clockwork i had after flashing back to stock from Icarus so i can try 2.2 it came up with a screen at the top it says android system recovery <2e> on a black background with blue letters
    then android system recovery utility

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    is this normal?

    and no matter what i click on it goes right back to reboot system now

    and the other 3 buttons go to a screen that says firmware update 1/2

    status bar

    and update failed whats happening?

    you didn't flash cwm 2.1.5.8 right. it should be a black and green theme with Clokwork Mod 2.1.5.8 at the top and bottom in white text.

    When I try to flash back to stock
    from the zip file, I always get that the process is aborted. I am running cwm 3.x, should I be running the 2.x cwm? If so, I can't figure out how to successfully flash back to the older cwm. I have Cricket by the way. Thanks!

    Try downloading the zip again. You may have gotten a corrupted download.

    I tried the anim mod and my phone kept trying to reboot. I thought my sugar turned to sh*t. I almost took it to Crickets store but reading your guide saved my phone & sanity. Muchos Gracias!!



    ps stay away from Anim mod! you heard it here first like MTV..

    it rells you to run the file that corresponds to your o.s. but the files are zipped into one file. has anyone else had this problem.

    ahh, I've not done the icarus mod, just cm 6 n 7 both from the fone itself.

    If I recall correctly theres a .bat file to run if your on windows.
