I tried to downgrade from ICS to gingerbread. My version is 2030 at the minute.

I downloaded the file to my SD card, went into CWM and did all the bits.... now though my phone won't even load up.

I just want gingerbread back. :(

I'm not very good at this stuff.

please help.

thanking in advance.

Ohhh, I have managed to restore it by going into backup in CWM.

Basically I am trying to go from ICS... 2030 to gingerbread.

I downloaded the downgrade file in one of the threads. I then copies that to my root of my SD card.

wENT INTO cwm.... i INSTALLED ZIP FROM sdcard... wENT DOWN, selected it... then i wipes and reset etc.

Thought I had sorted it, but went to reboot and nope. :(

I'm doing another 'back up' now... What do I have to clear once I've done the backup?

I know you have to go into mount and storage, but I don't know what fields to clear.

There's different options. Some are 'format', some are 'mount'....but like with the same name.

So it will say 'mount data'...'format data'... So I don't know which ones are which or what to do.

thanks.

This post explains how to do this:

If the two part zip version of B952 in that post is a problem for you then you can also download B952 here:

Hope this helps.

I think my phone is dead.

Almost certainly not and it can be revived. :)

Try the force update of B952 ICS first to see if you can get it back up and running that way.
If you can then I/we can help you get back to GB.

Thank you so much guys.

I feel really fed up now. I know it's only a phone, but it's really frustrating.

I really hope I haven't bricked the phone. What if I've taken the operating system away? I was messing about with things in mount and storage.

I've got work now anyway and it was suppose to be my day off. Will have a go at this when I get in tonight.

:((((

thank you.

When you say force flash?

Is that the option when it asks you to choose zip from sdcard?

Yeah - I'm a bit fed up with the G300 but I must be a bit of a masochist that I can't leave well enough alone and I keep messing with it! :D

I really hope I haven't bricked the phone.

Very unlikely that you have permanently bricked it. It should be recoverable.

OK. I'm home from work.

Once I have flashed it what do I wipe?

Is it the cache, the ... can't think now and factory/reset?

OK I tried to do it once with the B952. Copied it over to my SD card.

Tried to flash it, but it came up with 'Installation aborted'.

I don't know if it's because the file I downloaded was a folder within a folder, within another one.

I downloaded just the one zip file RE post #7 (second link).

I am trying to just copy the one file over...because within that download is a PDF document as well. Having problems just transfering the one onto SD though.

I have to copy the whole of the zipped folder over.

If that makes sense :s

OK, so I tried another B952 download.

Not sure if the other one I downloaded was corrupt or my internet connection went or something.

So I managed to flash it and install it, but still no luck. Just stuck on the logo screen. :(((((((

This was the one I downloaded: http://www.igottadro...-L-1967809.html

I have done twice now and both time when I've flashed it I get 'Installation aborted'. :s

That's the only reason I tried another B952. Tried downloading the original B952 again and still, 'installation aborted'.

OK will do it now.

I did read somewhere that your IMEI has to be 0 to install any UPDATE.APP which is what the B952 is I think.

Don't know if this is causing me problems?

Will try that one you've given me.

thank you.

That file isn't in a folder so I don't think my SD card is registering it in CWM.

When I click on it on my computer it asks me how I want to open it.
