USB brick/rickrolled/b0rked -> FIXED!

Recommended Posts

Just few points...

I've never bricked my desire, I sucessfully rooted my device and flashed Modaco's ROM. USB, Bluetooth... everything was working, just when I used USB Storage Mode... it was working, but it was strange... it just disconnects sometimes... but overall it worked.

I decided to try and apply the USB brick fix... and guess what, I did it and now everything is working... it isn't disconnecting from time to time no more!

Hi,

I have some weird issues with my USB connectivity. I have only proper USB connectivity in the recovery mode. So I can't find my CID. Does anyone have a solution for such a problem?

You don't have USB in fastboot mode? I mean, you should be able to install the correct drivers at that point.

And that's also how you find your CID. (by using 'fastboot oem boot')

Otherwise, you can dump your MISC partition in recovery mode. This should normally contain your CID.

I bricked this Desire and I copied the 2 files to my SD.

Then I used the commands in terminal emulator:

su

cat /sdcard/flash_image > /data/flash_imago

cat /sdcard/mtd0.img > /data/mtd0.img

Got no error messages, and rebooted several times, entered the same commands several times and still no unbrick :/

I tried the the chmod command chmod u+x /data/flash_image but got the message: 'bad mode'

chmod 755 /data/flash_image results in no error messages... but still no unbrick... anyone ?

reread the 1st post.

ow how do you mean? I see this in the 1st post:

"/data/flash_image misc /data/mtd0.img"

Do I have to input this command in the terminal emulator on my desire?

like this: cat /data/flash_image misc /data/mtd0.img

?

how many of you who bricked your phone, have you ever used a 2nd pc except your everyday pc??

today I bricked my phone and that happened when I plugged it to my usual pc for the first time after I have plugged it to another pc.

Hello all,

Now I see the "new" method in the first post...I download the update.zip and I decompress it for see what's new.

The update.zip contain "newcid.img" I edited with a hexeditor and the surprise is in the first line with "11111111" and not with a "valid CID" [eg. HTC__001]... why??

When you run the script on the phone, the script will "open" newcid.img and search for "11111111" it will then replace the ones with YOUR cid and then it writes the file to the phone.

Look in the file "killrecovery.sh" to see what it does.

It's quite hard for the script to know what cid you have before you run it on the phone. :)

I installed the update.zip and reboot. Now my desire is at 1.15 firmware and i want to update to 1.21, but when i press search for update(or wahtever the button is called in english) its says no updates aliveble for this device. I have updatet to 1.21 before. there is a huge batterilife diffrence between 1.15 to 1.21 on my device so i would like to have 1.21 again ;) without installing a new rom and reconfigure the phone again >.<
