Hey, guys. Been quite a while, how are you?


I have a Karbonn A6 phone given to me by my friend because it was locked. It's asking for gmail user/pass but he doesn't have it. I tried to boot into recovery mode using Power+Volume Up button but all I get is a white triangle with an exclamation mark in it. I can't seem to go beyond that. USB debugging was perhaps not enabled unless it was enabled by default. There is no camera button, only power and Volume Up/Down. What do I do?


Simply put, I have a phone that doesn't seem to be able to boot into recovery(or am i doing it wrong?), has USB debugging disabled and is asking for gmail user/pass at boot. Is there any way at all to get around this? How? OS is Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.

Thanks a lot for at least taking the time to read through this post. You're doing this all for free, you've nothing to gain and you're still doing it. That's really appreciated. smile.png

Try searching over at xda-developers.com, it's where I go for research or tools to fix things. I've mostly had Samsungs so I don't know of that's how you enter recovery mode or not for that phone. Another option is to try and flash or connect using tools like Odin on your PC and connecting via USB.
