The Official 'I bricked my San Diego' Thread

34 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Did you brick your Orange San Diego recently? I did so my phone is currently on it's way to the top secret repair facility.

Did anyone else end up having to send the phone off for repair? How long did it take? How did you cope without it?

Orange gave me a loan phone.. a really really really basic Samsung flip phone lol.

Life without Android is hard :(

Top tip: Don't flash any updates to your phone unless they come from the Orange or Xolo websites. Even if they are user builds with the correct keys they will bugger your phone up. I found that out yesterday.

Nope I flashed an updated Orange UK ICS ROM I found that has been signed with device keys and was a user build so it should had worked. but it didn't. Something properly upset it. I'm wondering if it's because I flashed a different logo image to get rid of the Orange logo and that messed something up? Shouldn't do but.. meh.

Good job I made a full Android backup before I flashed. when I get the phone replaced I'll restore it all :D

How close are you clever people to bringing us custom roms? Where did you get those keys?

I've not logged on here for about a week. What else did I miss??

I think he means he found a properly signed official update that seems to have bricked his device.

Is it beyond repair ? I thought mine was until ricky sorted it out, don't know if you can go through this thread - http://www.modaco.com/topic/359286-xolo-software-update-available/ and find something that can help you fix it.

Okay, glad I didn't choose that option then, when I was messing about with it, really must try and learn more about adb and such like.

I am back, I got fix brick to work after flashing K800 files, or maybe fixbrick worked as I done it while in bootloader whereas before I done it while at logo ?

Either way........Amen to fixbrick!

Phew. Now next time don't format system!

Only time you will get 100% brick is by flashing a non-production bootloader. Like I did. :(

btw ricky somebody previously flashed with the update and fixed recovery by booting into bootloader and fastbooting the images over and wiping cache. Or did I read it wrong?

If you are bricked to the point you cannot boot then, go into bootloader mode and start AIO for fix brick, kill adb server with task manager and the tool will start sending update.

I solve my brick with the tools that i post the link .

I don't understand why AIO Tools don't work , but probably because i don't kill adb server with task manager .

As long as you kill adb in task manager and restart the tool in between each option you should be fine.
