When i try to go into recocery by pressing Start+volume down+camera button, i am unable to get into recovery also there is no droidboot icon, just XOLO logo and then black screen, no intel inside logo.
Please help me anybody, i am in big trouble.

First off have you tried turning it off(wait a few seconds) and then rebootiing? If no success then try to follow this guide from Ricky(start about halfway down and try everything he suggests :-

I have same issue. When i boot up it shows xolo then goes to black screen then starts going through colours.

I can't send it back because of the Xolo boot logo.

I've tried adb shell but says device not found.

*edit* Nevermind Orange are sending me a replacement today.

Congrats Arcticfox. For me, they will replace the PCB as the ROM is corrupted.

How did you do so? I tried but all I got was a receipt sent in the post to have it repaired

Mine is only 24 days old that's probably the only reason why they didn't want to send it for repair.

I have the same problem....flashed update.zip after 12mb update
Some things you might wanna know:-
1-The phone is not bricked only the display driver or something is gone....I am saying this because:-
a) I can still take screenshots...see this one below(somehow i unlocked the phone it and copied it from usb storage)
Posted Image


B) I connected my television with hdmi and had a brief glimpse of the lock screen
c) It vibrates when someone calls me

The problem:-The touch screen isn't working so I cannot unlock the phone while i see the display on my tv and it goes as soon as the phone locks after 15 seconds.

Any new suggestions for this particular problem?
I don't have root

When you say you flashed the update.zip, are you now on a basic Xolo install? If so can you use the tool to obtain root and then flash the alternative GPU drivers?

I thought of that but still i have to enable usb debugging and unlock the lock screen....can't do that as the touch is not working
Any other suggestions?

I can get on to the android bot thingy by pressing volume down and camera button with power...can see that on my tv....can we do something from there?

If you've got the Xolo update.zip in the root of your phone you can get into recovery. Turn the phone on holding power & volume. When you see the droidboot, release your fingers and then hold power & tap volume +. You'll see a menu. Select recovery, clear the cache and then update from external storage,

Thanks BlueMoonRising for helping !
Solved the problem !
Things you need:-
1-Your phone whose display is flashing colors after flashing update.zip after 37mb or 12mb update
2-hdmi cable
3-a tv or display that supports hdmi

turn on your phone and connect it to the tv via hdmi cable....you will see the xolo logo on the phone and the remaining booting process will be visible on your tv!
Now the tricky part is that the touch on your phone is working but not in the right orientation ie when you see landscape on your tv, hold the phone in portrait and vice verse. you have to use your imagination and touch the screen according to what you see on the tv
Go to settings->about->advanced settings->check show pointer location...this will help you see where you are touching and adjust your gestures.

Now the final step...turn on your wifi or packet data and go to settings->about->system updates->update via ota and download the 37 mb update and install it !

Reboot and Volla!! your display is back!

Glad you got it sorted.

I don't have a micro hdmi cable, could you confirm that the recovery screen I mention above is viewable on the tv? It would be useful for other people in the future.
