I have bricked my Cloudmobile

17 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

(Sorry for my English)

@Vache, i've read your twitter too late :-(

Yesterday i've tried too unlock the bootloader with Unlock_firmware.zip, reboot and... nothing, black screen.

You know why...

But the S500 isn't dead, when i connect it to USB port, it's detected as (on linux):

Product: QHSUSB_DLOAD

idVendor=05c6, idProduct=9008

I think we can download a firmware with a special tool from Acer ? But do you have one or an other solution ? i bet no...

I believe that i need to return my S500 to an Acer service repair :-(

Thanks.

Hi,

Sorry to heard that.

Had a CM in this state, was able to use this script : https://github.com/jcsullins/qdl-upload/blob/master/qdl-upload.pl and write on memory. But dunno what to do next.

Didn't find other tool to flash the phone in this state. (seems like the situation is the same for all MSM8x60 devices)

It's currently in SAV and waiting for news.

Yes indeed, thanks both of you to provide us with the CWM recovery and the root ! If i brick mine i would have to use my ZTE blade again (after I get my digitizer replaced). Although i have to admit that on that Blade i have the CyanogenMod 10 (Android 4.1.2) from KonstaT running, i will be very happy the day i can run that on my Acer CM :-)

OK guys....i`ve successfully unbricked my device.I will do more tests and after that i will post a tutorial with the instructions for unbricking Acer S500.This unbrick method will also upgrade the firmware version to the latest one avalaible for this device.Unfortunately the baseband will remain the same as it was before brick/unbrick the device.So for those with locked on Orange phones...the phone will remain locked.Also...the system will be allready rooted.

So it was not really bricked, looks like you tried to flash a custom boot.

A bricked phone will not let you enter in recovery :)

You`re right vache...my phone was soft brick not bricked at all.as my phone has a warranty i don`t care about it...i mean...i can allways change it with a new one as long as the phone is not slammed,dropped...or any mechanical damage.so...i`ve tried all the mods and firmwares from your ftp drive and i have found one that is working just fine after flash-it via CWM.but...i have one problem...after flashing and reflashing the phone...my wireless doesn`t work anymore.tried to flash the "Update" from your ftp folder again(because with this firmware the wireless worked) but now still doesn`t work.too bad...cause now i have to stay one week without my Cloud Mobile until Orange changes the phone for me:D

no solution. If your phone is seen as QHSusb_dload it's hard bricked and you have to send it to acer service center, they will need to change the motherboard.

You should edit the update.zip, on your SD card. Do not unzip, use 7zip or so to edit the following file directly in the archive:

META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script

remove the first line that checks for the correct device

I cannot assure that this will work for you, but it did the trick for me ...
