seightch: Just re-checking this thread(for the 100th time) and?realized?I hadnt event said a thanks to Pineapple Express for his help so far, dont want to seem?ungrateful?on the Internetz! ?

Oh and yes Ive tried a factory reset, but it seems Ive gone to far down the rabbit hole


So for those of us just about to head down the rabbit hole, I'm assuming the thing to do is once you have a custom recovery installed the first thing to do is make a recovery image of the rooted stock rom and save a copy to your PC? I have done this with previous devices but they have always had removable SD cards. Or would that not have helped in your current circumstance?

And finally to round off the rabbit hole analogy, remember Alice did eventually get home :)

Yes I did get home, It was all pretty easy once I got that RUU .exe.

Any one else heading down, I would highly recommend that they obtain the aforementioned file first it completely returns it to its original state. of course Vodafone/2Degrees owners need their correct RUU .exes.

I would also recommend that they do a backup from clockwork recovery prior to flashing(this saved my arse the first time I stuffed up)
