Default Start up problem

Please Login to Remove!

My brother has accidently deleted some files from his 8100 and now the phone will not start up.The only screen that shows is white with a flower shaped spinning symbol.If you take out the battery and replace it this screen shows and just stays there.I have tried wiping with the JL cmder with no luck and I have tried re-installing the latest OS using the app loader and this seems to work ie it installs everything ok but then the phone returns to the white screen with the spinning symbol.
Any suggestions before he pays to get it fixed ??

Don't delete random things unless you know what you're doing?

Thanks for that mate I will pass on your wisdom.
I got this sorted now by re-installing the OS and being patient whilst waiting for it to re-start.The first time I re-installed I got the white start up screen and presumed that it had been unsuccessful but got some advice that said the start up after re-install could take 15 mins and after waiting patiently it started and is now good as new.
