when my phone looks for "whatever".zip on the SD card it states the following...
No image or wrong image!
...also see attached picture. I somehow managed it to take a picture of it.
I tried with different SD cards (1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 16 GB). I also tried it with the card I usually use (16 GB). Tried it with the card that originally came with the phone (4 GB with all original data on it - out of the box). Formatted the 4 GB card to FAT32, FAT, NTFS... nothing seems to help. Also tried it with SIM card and without SIM card... so basically I tried lots of different combinations to get this running.
But still no progress. As soon as I select recovery and press the power button the phone restarts and I get a pinkish small pic (probably due to the T-Mobile Branding) and nothing else...
Stayed on that screen for at least 30 minutes. Nothing happened. So everytime I try that I'll have to take out the battery, place it back in... just to get the phone started again - just to get the reminder from my phone that there is a system update ready to be installed.
I hope this helps to understand my phone's problem.
All the best
