Could you give a short tutorial on wrangling
Roughly the same issue here. Except this is a refurbished phone that I just received today. My other one had a shattered screen. Anyway, i have no idea if this phone has ever been rooted before but I do know that it hasn't since I have had for a few hours. Anyway,
It originally booted up fine the first time and I was letting it do it's thing but it never downloaded my apps. So I started over from the beginning. Nothing. I tried again and this time it downloaded 3 apps and that was it. So I tried wiping it once again and starting all over. Nothing. Will not go past the activation screen.
I guess I could try to sideload something else on via update.zip method and see if I could get it to work. The only problem with that is, i was going to leave it stock for a few days just so I could make sure that everything on this refurbed phone works before I go to rooting etc. Basically, I was trying to narrow the possibility of potential problems in the future. Good thing I didn't immediately root because I really would have been chasing my tail. Anyway, I'll let ya know what i come up with. If anyone has any ideas, by all means chime in please.
