[Q] Bell HTC Raider LTE - Not recognizing Sim
About a week ago I received notification to update to ICS. After downloading the file and the phone upgrading it get locked into a boot loop, then after about 14 hours it finally escapes form the loop and starts up only to have the SIM not get recognized, I tried restoring to factory default but it didn't work... I then sent the phone to Bell to get repaired but now they are asking for $200 to fix the phone as apparently the bootloader was unlocked and voided warranty.
As you can guess I'm saying "screw you" to that and trying to fix myself... I'm not experienced with android and when I originally upgraded I didn't back up my original software so i have nothing to restore... So basically right now I am wondering what I should do... the phone is being returned to me not repaired and I want to fix this but don't have the knowledge how to... I'm not dumb when it comes to unlocking phones as I used to unlock old Nokia's and jailbreak iPhones but I have no idea when it comes to Androids.
I'm guessing I will need to try and find an official ROM for this but Bell canada isn't the most open with their OEM software so I was wondering if anyone could help in this area by providing a ROM I could use... secondly I guess I will need to S-off my device in order to install the software?
I have searched the forum to find somethings that may be relevant to what I'm trying to do... but I'm getting confused as to what i should do (The curse of being a Noob)
Any info would be great... thanks
