    Ok so I got this phone from a guy that renewed his phone and couldn't fix this problem so I am now trying to fix this so i can use it. Upon start up it goes directly to the boot loader screen with the code 2C.7C. I can boot and hold x to get to the /!\ and then into recovery but it seems like stock recovery, there is no android robot so I don't think it has sprecovery installed... What can I do?

    You could try using the method in my signature to root it, or sbf the frg22d fullfile on to it to return it to stock.

    ok so i got all the way to sp recovery but the phone did not have any sd card in it when i got it. I put a 2gb card in and then copied the zip file to the sd card but it is saying that E: cant open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory

    Flash a stock SBF to make sure the phone works, reseat the SD card, download the file again in case you got a corrupt download.

    Please say that again a little more clearly. :) I'm not 100% sure on what you're trying to do at this point. If you're asking about flashing a stock SBF image instead of the SPRecovery image it's the same except for the booting into SPRecovery and installing the update.zip.

    If its going to the bootloader after you SBF it, it doesn't sound good to me. I hope someone will be able to help you with this.

    Okay, honestly it's starting to sound like you bricked. When you say you installed the update.zip, what update.zip are you talking about?

    So you successfully sbf'd the frg22d fullfile furbearingmammal linked to, and you still go to the bootloader?

    Doesn't sound good man.

    yep... Is there anything I need to do when loading that sbf file... Since there is no update.zip do I just let it restart as usual or do I need to hold anything down?
