How do I flash a bog-standard, plain vanilla Amaze 4G? No unlocked bootloader, no root, no S-OFF. This is a virgin phone that hasn't been modded in ANY way, except for a custom launcher and the usual assortment of apps. Furthermore, at this point I don't want root, S-OFF or an unlocked bootloader. I just want ICS on my phone. Since this is an official ROM, it should be simple, right? Unfortunately after sifting through this thread for a couple of hours I'm not seeing it.
I've placed the PH85IMG.zip file in the root of my external SD card. From my reading it seems I need to get to HBOOT. Holding down Power+Volume Down to boot the phone doesn't get me anywhere special. Where am I going wrong?
