    I don't think you can,

    maybe if you used a HEX EDITOR program and compared the first part of tha damaged file with the first part of a good file, you edit the damaged file to correct the header info

    the header info typicaly gives the file size, the bitrate info, the file name , and file type , and where the file itself actually starts

    in the past I have edited bitmap files and jpegs, and other file types (but never any video files) to put custom wallpaper on a phone that didn't have the option of importing any ( lg 3200 )

    create an edit a special bitmap file to overwrite the existing file in the phone.

    but i haven't tried repairing a recovered damaged 3gp video file

    up for this topic, I can't find a decent program that can revive this kind of format.

    hope one of the experts reply.
