Hi,

What do you mean "block"?
Do you have PC Companion?
Try to reinstall firmware using PC Companion.

hi,

you got a baseband incompatibility.
you have to flash your baseband to 015.

cheers

go back to Eclair 2.1.1

shutdown phone, launch PC Companion.
connect mini usb to phone
hold back button of phone and plug USB to PC
PC Companion will re-install software to your phone.

cheers

Hi,

you got an incorrect baseband version.

you need to revert back to original software using PC Companion.

Default stuck wid stock os!

hey gabe!

i ve been using gingerDX for almost a year now. i downloaded their latest update in the weekend and took a backup of d whole thing using cwm recovery before installing it. after installing d new rom, i got stuck in boot loop (SE logo), so i used pc companion to do a hard reset and tried to root again. superoneclick shows root successful, and su is installed as well, but d prompt for su access is not showing up for anything (even for su test at end of rooting). i tired to do it multiple times, both rooting and hard resets but d same thing is happening...
what do i do? and is there any other way to restore d complete backup of gdx rom i took using cwm recovery as id be content wid dat too for now?
just not able to tolerate stock os..
please help asap!


baseband always been...15, always been on stock kernel. superoneclick asks to install lot of drivers, some it was able to (and never asked for those twice) and for others it said no more data... so i just skip those drivers in the reruns i ve tried...

swaraj

are you sure that the phone is rooted and that you are doing the copy-paste operation after giving r/w permission for system folder...?

Hello Gabeyong the links for rooting are not working anymore, can you reupload xperiarecovery0.1.rar and rootexplorer 2.19 again and PM me the links? I'm trying to root my mother's phone because of the bloatware creating problems.
