I have looked in depth through the "My Android Solutions" and tried flashing a 512.pit and also tried a new semephore kernel without success, I still had the battery bootloop.
My phone does work if started with charger plugged in but its a worry if im out and about and the phone dies. theres no way i can restart it without the charger boost.
Im looking at the Recovery Kit now.
"i9000 Rescue Rescue Kit for i9000 using heimdall packed by ldq"
I have never used heimdall and the files within the rescue kit are confusing to know how to use them correctly.
I have looked within the forums for a "how to" guide using Heimdall but it feels like its over my head, and to be honest, it seems that if i make any kind of mistake i could hard brick my phone which scares me
A total NOOB guide would be so greatly appreciated, or if there are any other solutions besides using the rescue kit Id love to know about them.
Thank you very much for your assistance
