    I tried to be a smart arse and root my Samsung S2, to do so I needed to upload some insecure firmware. I followed the instructions to the T, I downloaded an insecure firmware version that was as close to my current Kernel version, It successfully downloaded onto my device but now its stuck onto the reboot page which looks like this....

    It's been like that for the past 20 minutes now, I've reset the phone back to factory settings, I've cleared the entire phone from the debug menu but nothing is happening as it doesn't effect the firmware and still it remains on the reboot screen!!

    Surely I'll be covered on my insurence?? Will this be classed as accidental damage? Or would I be best of saying my phone was robbed?

    Can you boot into download mode? Switch off, switch back on while holding volumedown, home and power buttons.

    Well you could say it was robbed, but that would be fraud, wouldn't it?

    My phone has been stolen a few times now only hours after it has been dropped down the toilet or cracked screen. I'm amazed the thieves steal my phones in such bad condition lol. Easy to do just turn the phone off leave it to the next day phone the cops and get a reference number and roberts your mothers brother as they say
