I know this is another one of those "I need help!" kind of thread, but ya know, what can I do about it?

 

Anyhow, in my many attempts to SIM unlock the phone, I tried to do one certain method with involved using the DFU mode to flash the bootloader and basically erase and rewrite the NV memory, which got corrupted due to a finicky SIM card and then me putting my own card from another carrier resulting in a insta lock (went from 10 to 0 instantly), but that doesn't matter right now.

 

What does matter is that I have managed to brick the device to the point that it recognizes the device as the infamous QdLoader 9008 device. I know for a fact that it can be saved from that as well, because many other devices (such as some LG phones) were properly flashed using QPST Software Download.

 

I know exactly what to do, but I need some files for flashing. Mainly, I need the bootloader to just be to able to reflash recovery and basically revive the phone, however, I can't seem to find the right files on the internet. I have seen some posts on another certain forum you may know of, and it basically said that the emmc files can be extracted from the device using the emmcswdownload tool (apparently also in QPST suite).

 

Closest that I've gotten to actually reviving it is by using the chinese DFU tool; it loaded a PBL downloader arm program to the device, but it gets detected as an unknown device after replugging it without removing the battery. The files say that they're for MSM 7x27A, so it must be compatible with the Blade 3 (which uses 7227A).

 

What my questions are exactly - is anybody willing to extract those files for me to salvage this device and secondly, does anybody know an unlocking method that doesn't involve using any sort of external device (such as GBKey) or at least, resetting the counter back to 10? It didn't seem to detect the correct carriers' SIM card in CyanogenMod and if you put another carriers' SIM card it asks for the PUK number, even if it's correct it said it was incorrect.

 

Sorry for a long post, though. ;)

Hi it`s very cool you not givving up :)

 

when i tried to unblock, all atempts (in fact 2 because phone was used) went to 0 phone blocked (if you know when you can`t enter even a code)

 

only thing that i have managed to do is to install recovery and flash CM rom. At the moment phone works but neither one sim is recognized

Oh, sorry for a late reply lol

 

Yes, I was in that same situation as you were, but now this is an even worse brick because it requires to flash the phone using Qualcomm's tools. Luckily, I've gotten my hands on another Blade 3 and I'll attempt to download the firmware to my computer, however, I have installed CM10.2 on that phone. The only thing you need stock is the recovery image because unfortunately CWM replaced the diagnostic/FTM mode that the stock recovery has.

 

As for the unblock, I believe you can just download the NV memory from one working device and restore it to another. Simply put the phone in diagnostic mode (hold down while plugging in) and use the QPST Download Tool to backup the NV memory from a working device and restore it to another. (of course backup the broken device) Only thing I am not sure about is that it may change the IMEI, but that wouldn't be a too big deal as long as it's working.

Hy!

I also have a "qdloadered" blade 3. Did you find a solution? I tried on linux and winxp with qpst emmc software download, but had no luck...

Can you share your results? I couldn't find mprg7227A.hex, so i used mprg7627A.hex from an xda post, but qpst shows the "cookie can't recive..." or something like this massage...

Under linux i can see the phone as gobi modem and it mounts as ttyUSB0, but i don't know how to mount it's "storage'.
