USB brick/rickrolled/b0rked -> FIXED!

343 posts in this topic

As most of you know, people have been hard at work to fix the USB issues we've been seeing due to recovery setting us into USB debugmode.

After unsuccessful attempts to change the kernel commandline , eg. to:

board_bravo.disable_uart3=0

board_bravo.usb_h2w_sw=0

we've been successful in discovering (with the help of XDA-developers) that these switches are stored in the first NAND partition, mtd0, or 'misc'.

Step-by-step guide

1. Follow this r5 rooting guide to do Step 1 of the rooting.

That will give you a basic ROM to work with, with root capability.

2. Enable the SD Card functionality. Boot your phone in FASTBOOT mode (back + power), and enter this command: 'fastboot oem enableqxdm 0' . This will re-enable your SD card.

3. Put THIS update.zip on your sdcard.

4. Power off your phone. Hold Volume-Down + Power to turn it on, and select Recovery.

5. When in the screen with the big red exclamation mark, Hold Volume-Up + press Power, and select apply sdcard:update.zip.

6. This will automatically fix your MISC partition with the correct CID. Reboot, and your done!

Credits:

-kubino @ XDA for providing us with the 'misc' information

-TheProfessor @ irc.freenode.net #modaco for being the first test subject + debugging

-adam235 @ irc.freenode.net #modaco for being a test subject as well + debugging

-SgtDavePwnage @ irc.freenode.net #modaco -> moral support + debugging :lol:

-DrMon @ irc.freenode.net #modaco -> being brave enough to test on his non-bricked device!

Click here to DONATE :)

I was unable to apply sdcard:update.zip, as my sd card can't mount.

When I applied

# cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/misc.img

cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/misc.img

cannot create /sdcard/misc.img: read-only file system

#
So, it shows my sd is read only. Recovery says
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0
And Android says
SD card removed. Please insert new one.

I'm expecting to resolve it with your help as somewhere I read that this too is a condition of brick.

Hy guys, thanks a lot for this tutorial! My Desire has come back to life. Now I have a question, I did the first step of the rooting guide and now I have an Eclair ROM. I can't see the superuser app in the drawer, can I flash a new rom or I have to root again? Thank you.

I am trying to re-enable my SD card on the Desire but every time I press the command I am getting waiting for device.

How can I fix that?

EDIT: I managed to run "fastboot oem enableqxdm 0" command but my Desire still can't see the SD card.

What else I can do? Should I try to do a reset factory?

I've fixed usb brick for my HTC Desire (CID T-MOB005) (Rooted, S-OFF)

Simple method (putting update.zip and install it from recovery) didn't worked for me.

Steps I did:

1. Downloaded image file "misc.img" (with my cid) and "flash_image" and put them on sdcard.

2. Installed Android Terminal Emulator app (from market)

3. Opened emulator, typed "su" command, accepted to give root permissions

executed this commands:

cat /sdcard/flash_image > /data/flash_image

cat /sdcard/misc.img > /data/misc.img

chmod 755 /data/flash_image

/data/flash_image misc /data/misc.img

4. Rebooted phone and now USB works!

Thank you all, guys!

Hey guys,

I have the problem that still after using "fastboot oem enableqxdm 0" and the shell says "OKAY...finished..." can't use my SD- Card. I formatted the SD and renew the partitions. I tried to use another SD-Card but it's not working. I can only use the SD-Card on my computer via Cardreader.

If I type "fastboot oem boot" I can find this as well:

"board_bravo.disable_uart3=0"

"board_bravo.usb_h2w_sw=0"

i read in a Forum that there should be a "0" --- so everything seems to be ok-- BUT IT'S NOT WORKING.

And without the SD card I can't flash.

PLEASE HELP!

i see no one has answered this post for a long time.. still im gonna try ask

I got the unrevoked 3 and unrooted my HTC Desire... everything went ok... The problem came next... Now it does not read any micro sd card, like most ppl complained..

I've been searching and trying several things for the latest hours and got no luck...

Most ppl said it's an usb brick, still following instructions here and in xda i cant fix it, cause i just cant copy any files to sdcard.

The sdcard is working fine cause it reads on computer. I already reformated it...

I tried using the fastboot commands but nothing worked...

I didnt thought about this before rooting, but i think the phone is locked to an operator.. Dont know if it mattered.. Still.. the root is working... had no problems.. Only it does not recognize any sd card.. in OS or in recovery.

Any lights out there of me???

Thanks to this post, I managed to recover from a USB brick. Ihad the usual suspects : could not mount USB, fast drain, no bluetooth.

Applying the update.zip did not work for me so I got a little worried, then I found the flash_image solution and it did the job. Great.

I believe I bricked my phone when removing the battery while in recovery mode. I thought I was doing a normal reboot but I had done a reboot recovery instead. My bad.

Anyway all sorted now, thanks again ...
