Yesterday I bought a bricked HTC Surround because I wanted to see what I could do with it .My observation was the dreaded stuck on the HTC screen. So I researched and also had a samsung focus handy and found out a key problem we all know about the corrupt memory cards. So I download stock roms of both the focus and surround. My concern was merely on the surround ;I flashed the surround to att stock rom: i bought a torex 8 in 1 and a phillip .00 screwdrivers and opened the surround and took the memory card out and cleaned the memory card then i put the phone back together without the screws or the memory card I did the reboot reset on; the phone partitioned on its own memory: THEN the phone would not connect to Zune so I went under the computer on the start menu right clicked on then opened properties and open device manager connected the the surround to the device manager and forced it to download drivers(unknown device will come up when on device manager). Next I disconnected the phone after i had gotten the drivers on my computer (reassembled phone with memorycard and simcard in) I made sure gb was in the about phone column before i synced it to zune. The focus I used as a reference for how it would update and wp7 build. AND now the surround enjoys mango .
