Re: please, diamont problem

I'm pretty sure you messed up. Orange is GSM I believe. MightRom is CDMA. Not sure if you can recover from this I have no experience with bad flashes. Goodluck!

Re: please, diamont problem

I googled Cosmote and it looks like they are a GSM carrier and when you flashed MightyROM you flashed a CDMA ROM. You will have to get it back to bootloader and flash a GSM ROM. Or back to the factory defaults.

bootloader = (volume down, Power down and reset button all at the same time for a few seconds)

Check out XDA-Developers.com for GSM ROMS

CDMA is a completely different wireless technology from GSM. The only difference you need to worry about is whether or no the phone has a SIM card.
  • SIM card=GSM
  • No SIM card=CDMA

CDMA phone are programmed via the devices unique MEID, while GSM relies on the sim card for service reception.
  1. To return to factory settings:
    1. Find your carrier's (in this case Cosmote i guess) SHIPPED ROM. Not stock. Shipped.
    2. Flash that on your phone as you would any other ROM
  2. To use your phone on another carrier:
    1. First off, we've established your phone is GSM.
    2. It appears that your phone is already carrier unlocked, seeing as how you switched it from Orang eto Cosmote.
    3. All you'll have to do is switch SIM cards to switch carriers.
    4. You will only be able to move your phone to and from GSM networks. Basically, if the carrier doesn't use SIM cards, you can't use this phone on it.

Hit thanks if i helped.
