About a week ago, contact me Domenico for advice on buying a new smartphone, since its THL 4000 it was dead. After several emails, we discovered that Windows still recognized its THL 4000 after connecting it to the PC via USB cable.
Following some requests on the forums, Domenico was able to get his THL 4000 working again, then he wrote and sent me the guide for restore this smartphone, via Flashtool.
