Hi my friend. yes bootloader is unlocked, and clockwork was installed. she is on UK THREE network. its my fault. i went into i think the bootloader...*pressing volume down whilst powering off* and just started to delete things from there she asked me to do a full reset as her phone was sluggish. now i cant bring the phone up on the computer to drag files onto it to reinstall a rom. now when i boot the phone it just stays on quietly brilliant.

Can you still get into the bootloader/clockwork? Do you know which version of clockwork is on there? The latest version is here: 9/6 Mandatory Update Official Clockworkmod Touch Recovery - xda-developers.

The latest version will allow you to mount the phone as a disk drive to the PC so you can copy stuff (a ROM) to your SD Card.

If you've already got clockwork on there, are you ok with flashing the latest version?

The latest version is, flash that via the link above and it will allow you to mount the phone as a disk on your laptop.

1. Download the latest version of clockwork via the link above
2. Copy the img file to the folder that contains the fastboot.exe on your laptop
3. Boot the phone into the bootloader (the white screen with the 3 skate boarding Androids at the bottom
4. Select Fastboot and connect the phone to your PC, it should say "Fastboot USB" about a 3rd of the way down the screen
5. Open a command prompt, navigate to the fastboot folder.
6. Type "fastboot flash recovery XXX.img" (minus the quotes and replace XXX with the name of the recovery image
7. Let it do it's thing, then disconnect the phone from the PC
8. Boot into recovery
9. Once loaded, connect the phone to the PC again, head to mounts and storage and select USB, the phone should appear as a separate drive on the laptop.

Let me know if that works.
