    Search for hard reset, or factory reset. Same error message I got but I wasn't doing anything like rooting.

    Without SPRecovery, you (or your brother) might be in some trouble.

    Are you from another country? I'm curious because if you are, nobody should be giving you a hard time. If you are an American, well...
