You mean the windows fasher I used? It did keep a backup without me asking it to? Nice, I'll see if it works
Doing that :/ I don't know. Still, will try the first bullet.
Yes, this guide! And the custom Gen2 v5 (recommended) is what appears to have bricked my phone.
About the chinese hardware. I suppose it should get into the network after entering the correct IMEI. With IMEI of 0, it stays in airplane mode (all networks off).
Edit: Restoring from the channel1.nvm hedgepigdaniel told me worked! I have now the correct IMEI. I'll try entering the sim now to see if I can get into the network. Thanks!
Edit2: I can't seem to be able to get into the GSM network. The phone stays in airplane mode. What should I do there?
First, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess what happened to you the first time. You tried to flash using my guide, but the flasher failed at 98%. Everytime you turned your phone on, the words FTM appeared on the screen. If this is the case, then I suggest option 2, if you feel daring you can even try the custom v5 again. If you run into the same problem again, it can be fixed by restoring channel1.nvm as you have just done.
Maybe that is all wrong though. You have two options. You can either try something to get radio to work on the Chinese firmware, or you can try to flash European firmware. (flashing European firmware means you will have to follow that guide again and hope that the same problem doesn't happen, but it also means your phone will be restored properly to the way it began)
Option 1: try to fix up the Chinese firmware:
Get the firmware files (partition.mbn, amss.mbn, etc) of the Chinese firmware. Replace amss.mbn with the one from a European Gen2. You can use the one from the custom Gen2 v5 package. Use this tool
to create an image.bin file from those files. put this file on to the root of your SD card and power your phone on pressing menu and vol+.
Option 2: flash uropean firmware
Follow the guide again and choose the stock Gen2 package
