Bricked Android on Boot loop and I'm out of ideas

Hey there modaco community sorry for being a first poster asking for help which seems bad to any community i've always been a reader but since i'm out of ideas i've created an account...

 

The problem is i was trying to upgrade my phone tried some stuff from http://huaweig300.com followed all steps closely and fine but got stuck with a boot loop while on step 6 since the link was dead on step 5 and i read

"Continue with this guide if you want to install a custom ICS / JB ROM. Alternatively, you can stop this guide if you are happy with the official ICS ROM your phone is currently running." so i kept on bad mistake...

The phone turns on the huawei symbol appears then it reboots and the same happens again and again, can't enter in any mode vol up or down +power and my pc,running on linux, doesn't detect a thing.

Can only enter on a weird mode which i'm trying to learn what it means which is volume down+up+power button which leaves me in a pink screen.

Have imei,contacts,photos,etc backed up in case s*** hit the van and oh boy did it spread all over the place.

<- same bootloop

 

 

Info cellphone:

Was official ROM and was rooted...

U8815
2.6.38.6-perf android version Gingerbread
Baseband 109808

 

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1850464&page=2 seems like the same problem.

 

Will keep reading and lurking until i solve this which is a great challenge! But any help will be apreciated.

Gracias amigo, it's no problem i know a bit Spanish plus the translator it's like speaking the language.

Reading the whole forum there i hope i can solve it, my problem is the step one but how would i install a rom if i can't even access the phone i guess i need a tool will keep looking :)

Still can't get a good tool read most of the interesting stuff but I’m still stuck with the problem.

Will keep on reading and trying...If anyone is kind to help I’ll appreciate it.

 

The CWM(ClockWorkMod) i need to install the app and i can't even enter the phone.

The TWRP (TeamWin Recovery Project) doesn't support huawei g300

I love you ! :D It worked like a charm! Thank you so much i haven't been able to research as much due to tendinitis but comming here and seeing this solution has helped me a lot i don't have to use my sos phone anymore vhristenco you are awesome!

Will leave your post here for others to see.

 

 

 

From vhristenco:

1. Force Flash this file. This will allow you to flash ANY rom afterwards. After rebooting you can remove the battery, no need to fully boot to ICS.

2. Force Flash B895. AFAIK it's the latest european GB.

 

By "Force Flash" I mean copy to the dload folder on sd-card, remove the battery, wait for a few seconds, re-insert the battery and power on the phone while pressing both Vol+ and Vol-.

 

Backups if links die

So i found out what broke the phone specifically, so a fair warning to all,  in this step of the modaco huawei recommended website

http://huaweig300.com/huawei-g300-install-a-custom-jelly-bean-ics-rom-from-scratch/re-root-unlock-bootloader-install-clockworkmod-recovery/

it's on the step13.

Enter the following commands into the terminal:

chmod +x bootloader-g300.sh
sudo ./bootloader-g300.sh

 

 

shitty bootloader...

You shouldn't use that huaweig300.com tutorial to unlock the bootloader.

It does an unofficial unlock which can cause problems (3G reboots etc.).

Better to do an official unlock (or just stick with the inherently unlocked GB bootloader and 19808 baseband):

Wish i have known that before it got stuck on bootloop an i ran out of ideas, my baseband is 109808 so i'm assuming the bootloader is already unlocked.

 

Will leave my phone like this for now won't try much more I'm using GBXTREME from here

http://www.modaco.com/topic/368846-romgb-b895-gbxtreme-rom-%E2%9C%B029032014%E2%9C%B0-multibaseband/

which is very good i recommend to all g300 owners.

 

 

Peace out my arms are hurting.

Yes - the GB bootloader which goes with the 19808 baseband is inherently unlocked.

You can soft brick the phone by trying to unlock this bootloader rather than the ICS one.

In my opinion GB ROMs get the best out of this phone. 

I also recommend GBX.

Enjoy.
