Masters I need your help you let my phone alive!!! My phone is only a week to me...

I have an Acer Liquid EMEA CUS4 1.6 used A1_DL_Tool_[Intra][Single]_v3.100_20091027 to flash the ROM to Froyo 2.2 bin 4.002.02_EMEA-GEN1_05.01.04_A1_Pass_protect_MbD for 256 and it works well for 3 days... Was on my way home from the Mall and decided to change my 3G network to 2G so i could save battery...

When I got home after charging it to 67% i switch back to 3G network but it wont go back to 3G even after 3 reboots w/ battery pulled... so i decided to try the gingerbread leak for liquid mt EUU_Acer_LiquidMT_3.008.03_EMEA-GEN1_03.08.03...

Unzipped the file and replace the bin to A1_DL_Tool_[Intra][Single]_v3.100_20091027 ADT ... it has md5 fail but as been an avid reader of this forum, i know its just ok... but there are some more files missing the ADP and some with .img which i dont know... it went along well but after it reach the end of amss i guess it was said that my phone was disconnected, checked my laptop - its on working status (not freezing) and the ADT just stucked in there... i leave it for 20mins hoping that it will proceed but it didnt... so i remove it from the USD and tried to turn it on ....

Not its not turning on and not even charging.... tried all the combo buttons here and nothing worked...

I wonder what to do next... log file attached

There should be more button combination for different version of firmware.
you may try

unplug the battery and replug after 30 sec and connect the usb cable

Press "Camera button + power button + column up"
or
volume down + power button
or
camera + power button
or
camera + "<" + power

sometimes the phone will over vibrate twice without turning on, it is okay. you can use acer tool to flash again.

My phone also didn't turn on any more after flashing. This is what I did:

I removed the battery and plugged in the power adapter. After a few seconds or minutes the display switched on and showed that there is no battery. After putting the battery in again I could turn the phone on again.
Then I followed a tutorial I found here (the first comment): the Unlockr
_________________________________________________________________
For those who faced the "death step" or "black screen" and can't get the phone recognized over USB on PC/MAC, here is a solution (step by step):

1. Put your MicroSD on your computer with an SDHC Adapter.
2. Now open the MicroSD and paste "LCR_1.7.3-signed.zip" (use THIS and not the 1.8.2) renaming as "update.zip" on the memory card.
3. Press "Volume minus + Camera + Power" and wait to vibrate 3x then leave it booting.
4. Now the system will get automatically your update.zip file and rebuild the system.
5. If the update don't happens please enable UMS and ROOT on the menu and then "Reboot the system".
6. Now you can switch OFF removing the battery and ON with power button.
7. Wait to boot into the LCR MOD custom system, it will be really slow... be patient.
8. If it crashed try again with the fastest move you can before it crashes on some important steps =D.
9. At the HOME screen go to "System -> Applications -> Development -> Debugging mode".
10. Now your PC will recognize the phone and you can use the "A1 DL tool intra" to load any Eclair or Froyo BIN image if you disliked the speed from LCR ROM.

My Liquid has now the "Acer_LiquidF_0.007.00_EMEA-GEN1_05.01.01_57ab23c1cf32cd66f8b94e4be24993d4.bin" from FROYO on it. If you still want custom ROMs then try to use the superboot with a newer zip update, but i won't recommend you to do it again... it's not worth anymore.
_________________________________________________________________

Hope it will help you.

Did everything on the guide.... remove the battery and plugged it when ac adapter and usb.... the computer is not recognizing it....


"Im restless right now but i am planning to look for another acer phone and borrow their battery and try.... coz in the process of flashing it, i wonder why the phone was turned off and the ADT said not connected" I am thinking that the battery is all drained but how come? its 67% before i did the flashing...

If anyone have any advice please express it in this topic...

all your help will be appreciated... thanks and still waiting...

for me it only took a few minutes, about 5min.
don't know what u can do more, maybe just putting the battery in and out while charger is pluged in. i also just tried everything without knowing if it will help...

download the official firmware from acer page, its 2.1, run it and when it asks you to connect the phone do it, there should be a screen where itll show if the phone is connected or not, there you connect the phone and try one of the buttom combo, one of them should make the program recognize the phone, even if the phone doesnt show anything, its the last resort for a dead phone, hope it works for you
