I am a newbie to Android, but a bit of a pro with IOS!
My Brother in Law has been passed down a Galaxy S II by his Father, and want's it unlocking to all networks, so once again I have been dragged in to do it as with anything tech related.....
I have read the forums and understand how to root and unlock etc., but here is my problem.
I can't connect the phone to the PC in any way, shape or form.
It is locked to T-Mobile and is model GT-I9100 on 2.3.3 Gingerbread.
It won’t connect to Kies, Odin, or show up in explorer as a USB device etc. I have tried the suggested methods of debugging mode etc., tried various cables, different PC's, drivers.
I believe the fault is the phone, as if I plug my friends S II in Kies see it right away and installs drivers no problem, however they and on version 4.x.x.
The phone will charge via PC USB and also when I connect the cable it brings a screen up showing a USB plug and says MTP Application at the top and says connected, press the home key to quit Kies. But other than that nothing.
I also tried to update the software from 2.3.3 to the latest software via Wi-Fi from the phone, but again it gets as far as connecting to server for about a minute then just says connection failed.
I can only think it either has a software corruption or a faulty dock connector? Or perhaps I need drivers compatible with Gingerbread 2.3.3 and Windows 7.
Any help please!
