[TUTORIAL][NOOBPROOF] Return to Stock Rom after flashing CustomRom

Hey guys.

It is a really often asked question. And especially for noobs who managed installing a custom rom (because those always ask )

So what I have done is to develop a GUI Flashing Tool (useful even for advanced users) which will make it easier and quicker to flash images via fastboot.

And to show you how to use it I wrote this tutorial, hopefully helping those who are uncomfortable with command lines and internal knowledge.

As an example I will use Stock EU 2.3.5 as it is suitable for most users.
--------------------------------------------------------

Step 1: Download everything we will need

1. Download PG76IMG.zip from here
2. Download the Flash-Tool here (download the flashy.zip)

Step 2: Extract the zips

1. Extract boot.img, system.img and recovery.img from PG76IMG.zip
2. Extract all files from flashy.zip

Step 3: Take your phone into fastboot mode

1. Run Flashy.exe (.NET Framework required)
2. Click Bootloader and Fastboot Button (USB Debugging must be enabled)
3. Wait till the device rebooted into the bootloader.

Step 4: Flash boot image

1. Select Flash Boot Option
2. Choose the boot.img file you extracted
3. Click Flash!

Step 5: Wait till a message pops up and tells you flashing is done.

Step 6: Flash system image

1. Select Flash System Option
2. Choose the system.img file you extracted
3. Click Flash!
4. Wait till a message pops up and tells you flashing is done.

Step 7: Do a factory reset ! (Wipe data partition and all caches)

OPTIONAL: Flash Stock Recovery
(There is actually no need to do this)

1. Select Flash Recovery Option
2. Choose the recovery.img file you extracted
3. Click Flash!
4. Wait till a message pops up and tells you flashing is done.

--------------------------------------------------------

Now reboot your phone and be happy that it was just a point-and-click-adventure

Yes, for noobs who install a custom ROM without first doing a backup of the stock ROM in CWM Recovery!

BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP!

Thanks for the great utility and guide.

which first bootup? you mean after pressing the "Bootloader and Fastboot Button" ?

If yes, I can tell you it will take FOREVER unless you activate USB Debugging in your phone settings :P

how did you factory reset? if you have a custom recovery you have to wipe caches and data partition.
