Is there a way to format my phone and start over via computer? I believe the only things I've seen mentioned that can do this are Windows-only, which is fine as I do have a Windows partition but if there are format/install utilities available for Mac I'd prefer that. Thanks in advance.
For future reference: When I see a new modem appear in the OP of a SKY ICS update, should I install it? That was the only difference between my previous upgrades and this one.
Edit: I should clarify that I understand/followed the instructions for flashing this firmware; my question is more about an alternative way to get into recovery mode. (Or just start over completely.)
Let me ask you this, you can't pull the battery to shut the device down, then hold the power + vol up + vol down to boot into recovery?
And in your clarification you do not mention searching or reading through the thread concerning radio/modem flashing procedures. Radio/modem flashing has been covered many, many times in this thread.
