bricked my new phone

Hi there

Got my new Pro 5 today and tried to change to international version. After a few minutes the screen got darker (but not off) and then it shout down. Now it’s bricked. I can got to recovery, but not more.

  • I don’t have the fastboot drivers
  • I don’t have the right update.zip in the storage

How can i unbrick it? Need help.

Regards

If the device does not reacts to Volume Up + Power it is a hard brick.
Otherwise try Volume Down + Power and connect it to your PC to see if it still reacts.

I can connect it with volume down + power but don’t have the driver. it shows android 1.0 in device manager

so… not a hard brick? how can i get the update.zip to root? with fastboot?

got the rigth driver with “Mobogenie3” hope i can find out how to send update.zip to root directory

If you have working fastboot you can try to force your device to reboot in recovery :

  • fastboot reboot recovery
    Then you can flash it back (putting the correct update.zip) in the recovery device shown in Windows

If recovery isn’t bootable you can try to flash it back

  • fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    Extract the recovery.img from firmware update.zip

Be sure you battery is charge enough ^^

Could flash the lastest Flyme OS 5.6.1.19 test firmware (Pro 5), this was accepted by the recovery.

Got it unbricked!

@ch_swat_89 try chinese one (with English)… as you tried at first to install the international firmware, i guess the original wasn’t one
