I am now going to try your advice, but I have never flashed a phone in my life. I am reading how to do it now. I have downloaded the Emma flashtool, but now have to unlock my bootloader - I have heard previously that this breaks the camera... will my camera break when I do this?
You have to use Flashtool
v9.14, not Emma, and flash the latest .136 FTF from Here
for your Model only, you don't have to Unlock Bootloader, you phone will be just fine and your Warranty will not be voided.
Turn Off your phone, keep pushing volume down and connect via usb the phone to PC, keep holding volume down all the time, let windows install drivers for flashmode, open Flashtool, before that put the FTF .136 in flashtool folder, now click Flash on flashtool and select the right FTF, uncheck everything except Wipe Data, Appslog, Cache, now click Flash, Hold volume down until the green bar of the process will start at the bottom, now you can leave your phone alone. Done.
IF I HELPED DO NOT SAY THANKS, CLICK IT.
