'ello fibblesan, excellent
yep will do ... I'm flying thru phones as usual I think I've used some of your roms previously on some phones, poss the San Fransisco, maybe the Desire HD, can't remember ! This phone tho' looked good in the store & to be fair from a fairly unknown make it's a pretty stable & quick runner for what it is.
Here's the thing mind, by rooting & using root uninstaller to remove an app "vidloop" which I suspected was the cause of the demo video I kinda made the phone misbehave, the screen would lock up black etc expecting to run the video for a guess, I did call Best Buy & they said what must of happened is that they sold me one of their display handsets !
Anyway to cut a long story short because I'd semi-bricked the phone I downloaded INQ's own firmware update which of course refused to update my handset as the firmware was ... demo stock !!! at that point I was kinda concerned as there seemed to be no way to fix the phone or flash anything to it.
Then I noticed that in my running programs thru Win7 was "ADB" started I imagine by the 100mb exe file I got from INQ, with some experience before of ADB I fired up a new instance of that in a DOS window and ran ADB with a -bootloader switch (or similar) then thankfully the .exe file detected the phone connected in "emergency mode" and started flashing newer firmware.
Ok, so now the phone works sweet with a new F/W build it's running Android 2.2.1 build "126.96.36.199-cpw-13030" instead of "188.8.131.52-cpwdemo" so I guess I fixed the problem !
I read somewhere the phone company INQ had links to Hutchison Whampoa which is the parent company of the "3" network, and looking at the firmware it's also another Carphone Warehouse build as sold thru Best Buy adding typical apps from that chain of shops, Vlingo and "My Hub" the Carphone Warehouse backup solution.
I will go and make a backup now of the rom and get that to you, I gotta say mind already that I have used root uninstaller to remove some 'bloat' but you are welcome to check out the rom I have there
