make sure fastboot is turned off
This is an essential bit of info. I followed instructions to the letter but i couldnt flash the phone with original rom.
Have to uncheck "fastboot" in settings before it will work. I was also fortunate that i even had a spare micro sd
and multi card usb adapter to hand. Without them, you cant really proceed.
One other bit of info that was not obvious to me was sending "dload" folder to root directory of sd card.
Apparently root is just a direct transfer to the card. And not in a sub folder e.g. admin / app / skype.
You can place the dload folder next to other ones on the card so long as its not inside them.
Thanks for guide. Returned the g300 today.
