What I think he met was to ask the device specific forum. This is a pretty unique problem and the device maintainers would likely have a better understanding. It is yet another testament to not mess with things you're not familiar with. Let the developers do that.

I would suggest just buying a new phone. It looks like a disposable smartphone, anyway. Get a mainstream device with developer support so you don't have to try to edit things yourself.
