    Hi Jason!

    A friend of mine (who has no knowledge of ROMs and flashing) seems to have the same problem.
    I have searched a lot for a solution to fix this problem but to no avail.

    Could you please re-upload the recovery file?
    Everything else failed and your guide might be that phone’s only hope.

    Thank you so much!
