If that doesnt work we will need to do a complete reset of the device.

Ok, then I will need the exact model number from on the phone under the battery. That way I can make sure I give you the exact firmware for your model.
OK, its going to take some time (up to 24 hours) for me to download and authenticate the firmware, package it, and upload it to share with you. This process could be cut to about 2 hours but I refuse to send you a firmware that I have not tested and scanned to make sure its 100% original and not tampered with (malicious code inserted)... so please bear with me while I make sure what I give you is trust-worthy .
Thanks for being patient, hope to have it up for you tonight but by tomorrow-noonish I will be done for sure.
I have finished scanning the main package this morning, and will be done and have it uploaded for you right around the expected time (noon) give or take an hour .
Ok, this should do it for you. If not, we can move on and try something else .
Here are the four things you need to download (click on the "download original" button on the pages):
Ok, once you download all those, follow these steps:
Very Important: As soon as your phone loads, do a factory reset. Go into the Settings App, choose Privacy, and then reset the phone. This will complete the process and your phone will be back to an "out of the box" condition.
Hi Eric,Thank you very much.I downloaded the files and i'm ready to start.Before the i have 2 questions just to be sure.
about 5. How do i put the phone in download mode?The other question is about 'Very Important'. You say As soon as my phone loads do a factory reset. I assume that this is the moment that the battery shows in the display and then i have to press the menu button and the powerbutton at the same time. Then i have to choose the factory reset option. Is this right?
My apologies for not including the Download Mode instructions. For your Ace, here is how you do it:
The second part. No, you can let the phone load and boot up as normal, but after it boots up... do whatever you have to do to get through the initial setup and then open the Settings App and do a factory reset of the device. That will finalize the firmware flash.
I don't know if you received my reply so i type it again.
Thanks Eric.I'll try it tomorrow. It's 1.30 am and i'll try te get some sleep.I'll let you know the result.Greetz Remi
