@Ztelegend
It looks as if a video recording of your newly modded phone will be downloaded and viewed with much interest.




Guess I was wrong. Sorry
I don't know if Modaco has a vendetta against xda or it's playing silly buggers, but I can't seem to post the link. Google Search 'adam outler one click unbrick'
Although I don't think that program is designed for the Blade 3...

The Irony of it all :lol:


Thing is, i actually fixed a phone in worse shape and could fix this one too. It took me a windows box and a bit of help from konstat with a link to DFU. I have no idea how to even start to fix it in Linux though since he won't be able to get it into download mode at this stage.

It's been a while. All done. He replaced the motherboard,he said it was the most important part of a phone so he paid it a lot. A video will be up soon.

That would be the entire chipset along with the circuitboard it's on, pretty much everything but the battery and the screen.

 

I've done it before to rescue two broken phones into one but i've always called it the mainboard. It's, of course, not possible to exchange only the circuitboard without the chips on it like in a computer since everything is machine soldered in place rather than fitted into sockets.

Yup replace the pcb, and some devices have daughter boards.

Well yeah but this one doesn't, it has one mainboard and that's it. I haven't come across a phone that does in a long time though it was quite common 5-10 years ago, anyway the EMMC which he would need to replace would have been on the mainboard no matter what and since it's MSM7x27a all the integrated stuff is on there too so it's pretty much everything.

 

He still could have fixed it with DFU to flash a recovery and in worst case he could have used ADB and a backup of someone elses mmcblk0 and just dd it back, or go with a stock recovery and just copy the update.zip to his sdcard and flash it (if that would work, i have no idea what he actually did originally).

 

It would work since it got as far as DFU mode.

Ok guys...looks like I'm not staying away from rooting. I need a way to root-BUT A EXTREMELY SAFE WAY. I just can't risk another brick.Last time I rooted my phone home button didn't work and phone didn't ask me for a pass even if I'd put it. So recommend a very safe way. Thank you.
I'd also like to know if rooting your device removes network lock or I need to pay some bucks for it. I searched online and found few sites where you put your IMEI but the code I enter doesn't work.

Rooting your phone does not remove network lick. AFAIK no one has managed an unlock blade three accept by official unlock code from carrier.

Best way to root flash cwm as per instructions on cwm thread and then flash supersu. Make sure you take nandroid back up first by booting cwm before flashing and I would recommend saving that nandroid to your PC/laptop

I'd say that since you managed to brick your phone by installing CM via CWM (which is absolutely impossible to do) you should just leave it alone.

You should have told me that like 2 months ago. Never mind. Wonder if it would work.

You were told,  you ignored it.

 

It has worked in a great number of instances if you follow the instructions. Do NOT try to use it to flash anything else, it will brick your phone permanently to a point where nothing but a Jtag programmer can recover it.

 

The partition table is rewritten ONLY to flash recovery.img, flash anything else and you WILL lose your bootloader. If there is a genuine interest in adapting the rest of the partitions i may rewrite the rest too, it is extremely time consuming though so unless someone actually needs it i won't spend my time on it.

So guys,come on,how did you root your phone? Sound on ZB3 is average at it's best and I heard you can improve it with rooting. Any ideas? I'd also like to try the damn jelly bean...
