Problem with skate

Hi Guys new to the forum, so hello :),

Ive recently got hold of a unbranded Skate v690. Brilliant phone, but ive managed to bugger it up. I went on to the uk website and downloaded the system update tool, and update the system. Ive lost everything and it has reverted to what i think is the Chinese factory settings. Everything is in chinese and google play, maps ect have gone. Any idea of how i can set it back to uk?

regards

Jared

Best I can suggest, is either finding what the word 'Language' is in Chinese and hunting it down in settings and changing to English. Or same thing but factory data reset and choosing English as your language on setup.

It's been so long since I was on the stock rom and stock recovery tool, I can't remember where everything was.

Sorry i can't be more help mate.

Sorry, My explanion was not very good. The setting ect are all still in english, the home page and apps are all chinese, I can still use the phone and work my way around it. When i got it, it was like my Atrix I had, but since the update its reverted back to what looks like the chinese os?

Finding a stock TPT in English is probably your best bet.

You can make t-flash - but your stock rom and everything will be deleted so you at the end you will have Skatie 1.1

If you want i can tell you via pm or just search it

You now have clockworkmod. So you can backup and flash any rom you find here on forum through it. Look around and try some of them and decide for yourself. It's always hard to recommend something specific since everyone prefers something else. You get to clockworkmod recovery by holding volume down while turning on the phone.

btw, your mobile data connection problem can be sorted out by defining APN in settings / wireless / mobile

Depending on your operator.

Thanks for that APN now sorted, thought it might be something simple. I will look into diffent roms, thanks everyone for all your help. So glad I came across this forum.
