    The only thing I can think of is: in the compartment where the SIM card is, there is a white plastic slip that you can pull out. It will have the model number on it. Mine specifically says "Model: D5803". You have to pull the strip almost all the way out to read it. I recommend using a pin...

    This is what you are doing: - flash to old kernel (575) - install recovery - flash back to new kernel (291) You don't actually need to move those kernel*.ftf files anywhere. Just click on the Lightning Button in Flashtool, then browse to wherever those files are.
