Re: Noob question help!

1) go here : [STOCK ROM COLLECTION] RhodiumW Stock ROMs [Telus VZW SPCS USC] UPDATE 3/19/10

2) Plug in your phone via usb cable (select activesync) - Make sure you have activesync/windows mobile device center installed on your pc

3) run the .exe you downloaded.

What OS are you running on your computer, if it's XP your going to have active sync and if it's Vista/7 you have WMDC. You can also back out into the upgrades section and flash it from your sd card. Do you have anything come up on your computer screen when you plug in the USB cord? Better yet, did you get the instruction booklet with the phone, IIRC it explains how to get the correct software onto the computer to sync with your phone.
