    Thank you so much:)
    what i basically did was a slightly modified version of some of the tipsters i read here on lomography. I boiled the film with the container on for about two minutes. the lid popped open in the end so i took the film and directly dunked it into salted water for a minute. most of the tipsters said to remove the roll from the container and dry the film off with a blow dryer or put it near a radiator. neither options where possible to do. so i put the film back in its container and gave it sun for 2-3 hours a day for a few days. then i loaded the film in my camera and left it alone/ gave it sun for 2-3 weeks till the film advance wheel started turning smoothly...and you're ready to shoot away!
