Hi, i'm trying to wipe all data from my phone, to unlock my bootloader. when i tried to do so from the system setting app, the phone shows up a message in bootloader mode saying there was such no recovery on my phone (neither the acer one). How can i continue the process?

EDIT: the message (the phone was charging) is

"Recovery image verified failed

boot mode: fastboot!

Sorry I had problem accessing internet, i solved the bootloader unlock problem manually (the same exploit of the tool).

So, the question is, could i permanently mount r/w /system?

 

P.S.: Ivan69, se puoi rispondermi in italiano sarebbe meglio, visto che sono italiano anche io e a volte le guide sono incomprensibili per me, visto che sono nuovo del mondo del rooting android :)
