    @CaptainBeavus Yeah thanks for fast reply =) But my problem is that I can’t root it. I can’t get the universal androot to work (it says No ~~~Fu Goo or something) and I can’t get into the the bootload (Volume up + power on) where you can root the phone. I know that my blade is unlocked but I don’t know how to fix this problem. Do you know how to fix it? Thanks again!!

    I will subscribe 😉

  6. CaptainBeavus says:

    @philxter You need to install clockwork recovery to get into the boot menu!

    Make sure your phone is unlocked, Universal Androot should work, if not google other options…I have only used that one.

    If you have clockwork, you hold down VOLUME DOWN AND POWER ON together.,.

    Thanks. Already done; rocking and rolling!

  10. CaptainBeavus says:

    @thegallery yes this is how you install froyo and other ROMS out there!


  11. thegallery says:

    what’s the reason for this? I understand I have to ‘unlock’ it to use off the orange network, but is this for how you install Froyo? Or is this something else?

    @pipmdirector wooo!!

  14. pipmdirector says:

    my bad it works (:
    just didnt realise there wasnt a dot in front of the com

  15. pipmdirector says:

    the driver link is broken :/

  16. CaptainBeavus says:

    @TheCHFighter Also, before emailing.. try this..

    DOWNLOAD THE DRIVERS *link provided ^^*
    Take your battery out..put it back in..hold VOLUME UP and POWER ON button..

    THE android Logo will stay..now connect your phone to the pc and install the drivers…go through the process again of installing fastboot and see if it works then..

    @TheCHFighter My gmail is address is in the description… email me there with a picture..do you have a tft or oled san francisco… email me

    @CaptainBeavus My friend did it too with the same guide, and he had no problems.
    But you have not understood my problem! I can’t do anything on my phone right now, I can’t reach clockworkmode, my PC doesn’t recognise the phone, if it is plugged into the PC (WIN7).
    I don’t want to say that it is unuseable anymore, because the hardware is allright.
    But if I turn it on, it simply stays at the black screen, where the ANDROID sign is shown, and it stays there.
    Btw, what’s your GMAIL Adress?

  19. CaptainBeavus says:

    @TheCHFighter I Don’t see what could have gone wrong…When you are at command promt did you connect the phone at the right time, and did you hold VOLUME UP AND POWER ON…

    Also..have you downloaded the correct JJ rom..its the first one on the list…

    You might not have drivers installed properly..

    Have you tried it on vista or win7?

    DId you turn your phone of and reboot correctly at the right times..

    try to re do all the steps…

    If not email me on my gmail account…
