once its downloaded, make sure you are able to use fastboot (should be in the folder for the tool kit)
open a command promt, navigate to the toolkit folder which should have fastboot.exe then type:
fastboot flash recovery cwm-recovery-image-name
let it finish then boot into recovery. this will allow you to flash the 4.0.4 rom.
there is no reason to relock the bootloader and as soon as you boot up, stock recovery will place it self back on the phone since you're not going to root.
the GN toolkit has the disc image file "recovery-cwm-188.8.131.52-toro-lte"
what do you mean when you say make sure I can use fast boot. in the folder I found a application that is named "fastboot-toolkit", but when I click it it opens then closes before I can do anything with it.
also typing in the run box, I'm also not having anyluck, can you be more specific as to what you mean, I tried typing in "fastboot flash recovery cwm-recovery-image-name", and "fastboot flash recovery-cwm-184.108.40.206-toro-lte" because I thought that is the name of the file Im tring to flash, correct?
Is there no way to apply this via the stock recovery?
