    Hi, thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
    The battery's fine as I'd checked it just before it died & it was at 80%.
    And when I try to charge it, it doesn't come up with the message 'optimised charging'.
    It's dead.


    I'm convinced it's because of the executor file I selected.


    What sort of person or expert can flash my phone? What name would they go by?
    'Phone flasher'? lol
    I'm in the UK by the way.


    I'll leave my phone for a day in the hope that it may spring back into life, but if you can let me know what type of person I need to contact, that'd be great!


    Thanks,
    Stu.

Hello,

the phone needs to be flashed for it to be revived again. Also are you sure its not a battery problem? Your battery might be the one that is dead, it might just be a coincidence that the phone went off when you pressed the game executor. But if you are convinced that the battery is not the cause of the problem, then your software files must have been corrupt.

The game executor has damaged the phone software or maybe it has virus that damaged the phone files and reinstalling the software is what is known as flashing.

Flashing a phone is like formatting the phone software and reinstalling another one afresh. After the flashing, your phone would seem as if its a brand new one.

Now, flashing the phone is not what you can do by yourself, except you have the equipment and technical know how.

There are experts that specializes in flashing phones. They have various phone cables for different phone models and brand, include the phone software.

I would urge you to look for such expert within your vicinity, so that your phone can be flashed and revived again.

You might leave the phone for a while, make sure the battery is fully charged, then turn on the phone again. You might be lucky that the phone turns on. You should at least leave the phone for a day. But if that doesn't work, you can then proceed for the flashing.

Good luck.

    Hello,

    sorry for the late reply. Usually, people who flash phones does not have a specific name. Phone repairers are the ones that do the flashing. Flashing involves software, while phone repairing is hardware.

    Flashing a phone is a matter of having a computer, phone cables and software. I'm sure if you take the phone to a local repairer, it would be flashed for you there and if the repairer does not have the facilities to flash the phone, the repairer should be able to direct you to where the phone can be flashed.

    So, take the phone to any phone repairer within your vicinity, and they should be able to flash the phone for you.

    Good luck.

Are you going through "file manager" then "all files" then "games" or "applications"
Or through main desktop (9 icons)
Problem could be available memory to run these applications, check available memory by pressing unlock phone and press simultaniously the two buttons rhs top of phone, on the side ( used for zoom with camera and volume ) this will detail specs of pysical and available memory.
Make sure there is enough, refer to manual for minimum spec.
Sorry cant remember minimum.

My k800 is completely dead


It is a very well known issue tha only appears after unlocking. Seriously :)
Go back to the guy that unlocked it and ask him to unlock it again, this time with "enable preloader security bypass" checked then to delete the executor application. If he doesn't know what the above means then I suggest you find another guy that actually knows what he is doing...

Cheers,
