hello there
i have changed my rom and now i want to go back to my stock. i tried to use pc companion to restore the phone but when i did i got a message saying that i don't have the official rom (or something like that) and that i can not restore my phone to original. so i tryed to change my rom to the stock manually. but i dont know what .ftf file should i use. i made a try with one and now the phone bootloops and i can not even go to cwm to restore it from there.

please please please help me i am so lost.

You have to use flashtool to flash a stock ftf to your phone. There are some here Any one of them would do.

Cool
i think the problem is you are flashing a kernal instead of a full rom.
also you'll be able to use PC companion and all it's functions when you have a stock rom
