Followed inst to letter thru step 11. "Droid2_X6_2.2...SECURE.sbf" failed but I could not expand it to find what error. So I did it again. It failed again, went thru to 100% then just said "failed".
So I flashed , "BL_D235...HSPart.sbf" and it passed. The phone rebooted and nothing has changed.
I am using Windows 7. Wonder if I should try it again, or leave well enough alone?
I rooted my phone and then uninstalled the messaging app after I loaded Handcent and now I can not MMS send or receive.
I thought I could follow this tutorial and get things back to square one and start over.
Appreciate any advice.
I read this at the above link(I am new, they won't let me post a link): "Also, be sure your SBF file is good. If your file was originally zipped, then unzipping it would have given an error if it was corrupted so you're OK. " So I decided to use 7 zip on the jpg file again.
It said there was an error with that first sbj file. I deleted the jpg file and downloaded it again. Then I 7 zip'ed the new file and had no error messages.
Then I went through the processes again and it all worked. I am at the *22899 part now it has been doing something for about 15 min now. The call is still in progress and the notification bar is flashing green/grey. I will just have to leave it alone, I guess.
I did notice that all the bloat is back on the phone before I started the current call.
I noticed a few posts that mentioned "failed" so maybe this info will help someone else.
I will update whatever happens.
I was supposed to listen when I dialed *22899 but the dial pad went away and the notification bar started blinking. So after about 30 min I got back to the dial pad and there was a message that activation failed. I hit a "next" button, the phone dialed, operator gave choices to reactivate phone or upgrade roaming. I chose 1. and the phone reactivated. I have my 3G and am un rooted. So I stop after 12 a in tutorial. I have all the original apps back and can MMS.
This means I now have a backup on the computer to get back to stock. Now I will root again, and make sure I pay attention to what I am uninstalling.
Thank You and I will hit your paypal link.
