I received the phone from a friend of mine, brand new, never used before and really wanted to try Windows phone 7. Upon turning it on, the phone just stuck at Samsung boot screen and hung there. I turned to Google, it appears to be a common problem fixable with WP7 loader.
Unfortunately, for some reason, when trying WP7 downloaded (tried 7.05, 7.21, and 7.41)it comes up with the same issue. Write fail on MIBIB and on two occasions when it gets passed that, it freezes on PDA write.
Few pieces of info
Able to get to download screen
Downloaded the supersport auto flash samsung-i917-focus-firmware-UCJK2-ATT-USA
Also Samsung focus USB driver
I'm really hoping its not a hardware issue cause I was hoping to use this for a while so if any of you can help out, that would be amazing.
