I'm not sure how I can do that, because as I was mentioning before - I can flash a recovery, but when I try to access it the phone still goes to the red triangle. It's as if the custom recovery didn't flash, even though it says that it was flashed successfully.

Thanks. I haven't tried firewater before, so I will have a read up on how to do that. Unfortunately I can't flash any ruu as things are at the moment, because fastboot oem lock command won't work for some reason. I do ultimately want to be s-off though, so I guess I will have to be careful with newer RUU's.

I will post back my results.

Send it back. Your phone is dead.

OK, well I knew that it wasn't going to work as soon as I executed the first "adb reboot" command. The phone rebooted as expected, but it had also performed a factory reset in the process. Despite this I continued with the instructions, managed to copy the files and obtain temp root, but then the firewater process just terminated at bottle 6. Oh well...

I guess that must be true, so I will create a return tomorrow.

It just seems so strange that I can boot the device, install apps and otherwise use the device completely normally. I guess it's time to admit defeat and send it back though.
