First time post so bare with me, I really need you !
Ok, heres the deal... A friend of mine bought a padfone 2. He was into developing but not really into studying the matter. He wanted to try before reading so u can imagine what this does to a beautiful phone as padfone. I have always been into android but never had the opportunity to really own one. Expect this one day my friend called me and told me he had "bricked" hes phone.
He had rooted it with Paul's awesome one-click root method. Everything worked fine.
Then he started to delete some programs out of the phone. Everything worked fine.
He installed TWRP 2.4.3. Everything worked fine.
Then he said he was trying to install the new Pre-MCR onto the phone. That's when everything went wrong. I don't think he wants to tell me the whole truth but somehow he managed to delete the whole OS from the phone.
So that's where I come in. He got frustrated with it and he had already lost hes warranty on the phone. So I suggested that I buy it off from him. He did take my offer and now I'm an owner of a "bricked" padfone 2
So after a few days of frustration and turning my skills into action hasn't brought me any closer to victory. I bought the xda developer book to increase my skills. Still no success
I tried to connect the phone on my computer but adb devices didn't recognize the phone. Installed Pdanet. Working. Finding my phone both at fastboot & adb.
So after installing ADB SDK Pdanet and some other binaries (listed below)
I've started scouting around TWRP. Notice few things.
1. If I try to backup the system theres no data to be backed up.(recovery, system, cache etc.)
2. TWRP File Manager shows all the folders in the phone even when I adb push them.
Tryed to flash stock rom it always says:
archive does not contain 'android-info.txt'
archive does not contain 'android-product.txt'
error: update package has no android-info.txt or android-product.txt
So search continues... Found a solution saying try adb sideload(http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=35320569).
Checking for MD5 file...
Skipping MD5 check: no MD5 file found.
So the question is. Is there anyway to save my new phone ?
Really appreciate all the answers !
AND REALLY SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH ! ^^
So I got it working again ! Seems like I got a new phone for only a few beers !
tryed to flash Pre-MCR again. Worked like magic, everything smooth ! So thank you Paul !
