As you could have read it, my friend's g300 is sort of ... bricked. I did everything that the guides told us to get Infusion's ICS rom on his phone, we downloaded and installed the stock ICS from Huawei, rooted it, etc.
For some time, it was great. After a week or two though, he found that his phone shut down and when he powered it on, it only showed the splash screen. When I get into the recovery, it writes:
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
It shows everytime when I do any function call in the recovery.
I thought that reflashing a recovery would help. Unfortunately it didn't, it said that the installation was successful, but the recovery didn't get flashed itself, when I restart the phone the old (and corrupted) recovery comes back. The recovery version that I used is "CWM-based Recovery" v126.96.36.199 .
I tried to TPT the stock ROMs from Huawei's website (via the volume up-down and power on method), but at around 30% the installation stops.
My last idea was trying to flash a recovery via fastboot, but when I do it closes with a warning:
sending 'recovery' (5898 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.565s]
FAILED (remote: flash write failure)
finished. total time: 87.952s
And I'm pretty much out of ideas. As far as I know as long as the phone can be turned on it's not literally bricked, but I just can't get it back to life. Any ideas? It would help a lot.
One more thing. He mentioned that whenever he shut the phone down and then powered it on in the morning, it went straight to the recovery without holding the volume up button. I don't know why he didn't mention it when things were still working, but I can't go back in time, I guess...
