    Cant Factory Reset A Mercury

    Has anyone seen this issue before? I cant do a factory reset the Mercury. I have already tried doing a hard and soft reset. Both "go through" but the phone in fact stays the same. The Mercury works but it foreclosure randomly. I personally think its a virus or something.

    I also tried upgrading the phone to ICE and or to a custom ROM.

    I already have seen it with 3 customer already.

    Any help in fixing this issue is appreciated.

    why do you need to factory reset?
    go install custom recovery
    and then install the latest recovery with all of the updates on it
    and besides that, you don't needa factory reset the phone if you're going to change to a different rom anyways O.o

    Not everyone out there wants a custom ROM. Some people might just want to factory reset for personal reasons

    its recommended to wipe when installing a custom rom, cache needs cleared so you dont run into problems.

    There was a batch of mercury where the factory reset did not work. That batch was one of the first ones. After updating the firmware I think the factory reset will work.

    Yes the 2.3.5 shipped devices are all defective, hence the reason cricket & huawei are replacing almost everyone's devices. Should check that out asap.

    You sold someone a broken phone without telling them?.. oh look how awesome you are!

    It seriously says a lot about you as a person. Good going.

    First thank you for your all your responses. But what happens if you replace the recovery.img but for some reason it doesn't change. I already have done it to other phones successfully, but for this devices it wont allow me. No custom recovery, no update to ice using the pc (cricket pst) or update through the sd. No factory reset. Sniff.

    what are the dates on the files in the image folder? If they are not right your screwed. The one I have shows created in 1980!
    Nothing I do changes the phone, can't replace or update anything.

    The craigslist post CLEARLY said broken speaker and people STILL called me "is there anything wrong?" Me "Nope its perfect except the speaker" them "ah ok nvm bye" I mentioned broken like 5 times in the post AND it was in the title. She didn't ask me so I figured she knew.
