[Q] Samsung Focus Ver. 1.4 drama
I bought a Samsung Focus for a friend, unlocked it and it works like a dream down in Mexico on Telcel. Liked it so much that my OCD kicked in and I bought 2 more. 2nd one is unlocked and traveling Europe with my senior parents. It's that easy.... Great little simple phone.
So. Focus #3 has been a bear. It's a Version 1.4 and it's still locked. No big deal, I can handle that later. The issue is that it was in a drawer for a year or so, and it was never updated. It's on W7. I cannot get it to update like the others. Through Zune. I get Error 80004005. After hours of scouring these forums and trying the solutions, no dice.
I have tried Windows 7 Uploader v.7.21. It goes through the motions, but doesn't go back to 7004. I then tried Ver. 7.05, and it says the 4K rom is not a retail ROM.
I'm out of ideas. Suggestions on how to flash this back to a point where I can then upgrade to 7.5? The phone is basically useless without the update. Maybe the posts are old and there are better/newer solutions?
Any help / direction would be appreciated.
