Hi,

I smashed the screen on my SF1 yesterday so I need a new phone and im looking at getting the SF2.

I followed this guide..... http://www.sanfranci...isco-zte-blade/ ........ for my SF1 and found it pretty easy to do as a begginer and had no problems.


however Ive been doing alot of reading up over the last couple of days and the guides for the SF2 seem a lot more complex and need some prior knowledge. is this guide the best one to follow http://android.modac...d-now-complete/


or is there going to be an easier way to unlock/install new rom ect


any help much appreciated


jamie


(or is the motorola defy going to be easier for me to unlock/install new rom ?)

Yer the guide is for windows.

As long as you are methodical and follow the steps to the letter you should have no problems. If you havn't got access to a windows PC i cant help i'm afraid.

Finaly got to this stage

  • If you are sure you want to Unlock your phone press "START!"
  • Sit and wait it out, Should take no more than two minutes until it is finished and Unlocked!

but when I pressed start the progress bar hasent moved after 5 mins of waiting, what have I done wrong now ?

sorry for all the questions

Happens to me occasionally. Have had the battery out for about 10 mins and tried again?
Failing that can you get into cwm?
