I found that Vodaphone shop in Newport Wales would unlock the sim for FREE! if either it was over a year old or i had the recipt so they could void the warranty. Being desperate and not having the recipt I opted to pay £20 and get it unlocked there and then.
I have managed to root my phone OK and it is rooted because root apps work OK.
Now the problems:-
I am stuck on Vodaphone U8815V100R001C02B895 Kernel Version 18.104.22.168-perf android@localhost#1
There are no more system or firmware upgrades available for me.
I try to install clockwork Mod Recovery using ClockworkG300.exe and it seems to flash OK. The phone boots up OK. But when I try poweron and vol+ together I am stuck on the splash screen, after a few secs the capacitive buttons light up but that is all that happens I remain on splash screen until I press power button and reboot phone.
I try to follow guides like the 5 year old guides but important pages are missing or I cant find them.
I try to find a stock ics rom to use the iemi hack method but the page that lists the roms seems to be missing.
I really can't wade through 100's of pages to see if there is already help here for me, I hope you understand that. I just need a way to get back to ICS with a functioning clockworkmod.
Please please help me, I'm slowley loosing the will to live.
