    I have a galaxy on 5 from Metro PCS. A friend (I use that term loosely) borrowed my phone, rooted it, then wiped the drive on accident. in less than 24 hrs. he brings it back to me and says "Oops! I screwed up your phone, sorry!" I am disabled and do not have the money to replace it. Android is supposed to be "open source" so where can I get a copy to install on my phone?

    Welcome to Android Central! You can try using Odin to flash the proper firmware: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...interface.html

    I would also pressure your "friend" to compensate you for messing up your phone. If this person is not willing to make amends, then you might consider taking him to small claims court.
