Great - thanks! OK, going to take 2 hours (slow broadband) - is there anything I should be reading while I wait? How does it install?
Are there instructions?
And once I am back to stock, default (bootloader?) how should I proceed differently to getting KitKat on here?
These were the instructions I had put together before from other guides: https://gist.github.com/digitaltoast/11364569
My mistake this time was flashing the radio - perhaps there are other different things I should be doing too?
Thanks again for your help.
1.Just run the ruu.exe file on the windows pc
If the install works, you should have a default ICS with s-off.
2.installing 4ext recovery.
Download this image from here.. http://db.tt/1QYlMnp5
adb Command "......... fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"
Must be in fastboot mode ...
OR even better for flashing stuff, use android flasher from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=794638, be careful........
Once you have 4ext recovery, install via recovery, a root or a rooted rom
download 4EXT Recovery Updater app from http://4ext.net/
install via sdcard or adb command "......... install 4EXTRecoveryUpdater.apk"
run app and tap on update, it will find you model etc ... select the latest .. install
Backup in recovery (just in case)
Click my thanks box if this helps
