I have recently purchased a HTC Touch / ELF (So i thought) from eBay.
Turns out it was a CLONE.

To make matters worse it is hanging on the Windows Mobile screen.
Also, a hard reset is not working. Im not even sure it can do a hard reset.

There are also no Red numbers when the phone starts.. does this phone not have a boot loader?

Can i fix this phone at all? I really would love too do so..

I will pay £5 maybe more, to anyone who can get my phone working!
Payment will be made through PAYPAL.

Thanks people!
Lee.

Sorry guys just got a reply from another seller of the same phone on ebay.
Turns out the phone does have a bootloader..kind of.. you can hard reset but flashing is not possible.

To enter boot loader you have to hold volume up, camera, and soft reset, then middle button i belive.. i presssed it anyway..

Thanks anyway guys.

Yep. Take a look at the link in the first post. There are tiny differences. Weight, screw placements, serial's, performance etc..
