    Hello everyone. I'll start by admitting my incredible noobness. :eek: Right after FroYo came out last year I got the WWE firmware instead of waiting for it to come to Japan. Since then I haven't been able to SMS properly. And then, after I allowed it to perform a minor update it went into a startup loop. The only thing I could figure out to do was to wipe it.:eek:

    Since I've already done the hardest thing(wiping without a backup), I just want to return to the stock Japanese firmware. Ihave tried both RUU_Bravo_SoftBank_JP_1.18.762.2_Radio_32.34.00.28U_4.05.00.30_2_rel_123706.exe and RUU_Bravo_SoftBank_JP_1.18.762.7_Radio_32.34.00.28U_4.05.00.30_2_release_128910_signed.exe. And they both give me an error.

    I made a goldcard back when I changed to WWE, but I don't know if that's still good or even necessary for what I want to do. I don't understand this stuff well enough.:thinking: I also tried this: RUU_Bravo_SoftBank_JP(X06HT Rooted to Unroot):

    I'm thinking of moving to CyanogenMod instead. What do you think? Is learning how to do all this worth it?

    At least if I had the factory firmware back I could use SMS. It gives android a bad name when I tell my Japanese friends that I can't use SMS (or s!mail).

    What error did the RUU give? You dont need a goldcard to go back to (your) stock. Have you tried doing it without the goldcard?

    Error would really help though
