I would be grateful if someone could look at the pic and tell me if i have all the required things in place if I need to go ahead with the flash or do I run the file before I copy the rom in. Does it matter what .bat file from the converter is named and would I connect the phone and click on that file to start the process ,do i need any usb drivers and if so from where. and should i also have deleted fastboot erase ddr as well as user data?
Thanks again for any helpView attachment 5380897
All those files including the bat need to be inside the ocean folder

Excellent thank you. is it ok to run it from my F: drive then?
I havnt been able to get through to CpWarehouse to see if its covered under warranty and if it is would they wipe it. Im a bit nervous in running it incase I lose some very important data from the last week which i hadnt backed up
If you send it in for warranty, it will get wiped.

Flashing the firmware is pretty safe.

Try opening command prompt

In the firmware folder.

I just copy cmd.exe to the firmware folder.

Then run this in the command prompt

Code:
fastboot devices

If you get the device serial number and fastboot as the result,

Then try the bat file

Ran cmd, and all that should showed so ran the .bat file.
After completion the phone only booted as far as a message: your device failed verification.

I would be grateful for any further suggestions pleasee

fastboot oem fb_mode_set

The OEM locked is normal.
Just means you have not unlocked the bootloader.
You cannot unlock it unless it boots normal.
I'm not sure why it's not working.
What does getvar all say?
Remove the imei line before posting.
Code:
 fastboot getvar all

    Look for downloaded Firmware in something like
    Code:
     C:\ProgramData\LMSA\Download\RomFiles

    You may need to uncheck
    Code:
    Hide protected operating system files
    in View/Options/Change Folder and Search options/View
