Hi! I've completely bricked my OPEN C. Is there a any chance to wake up it, or the garbage is the only one option?  :rolleyes:

Thank you in advance!

 

P.S: Sorry for my bad Enlish!

How about you start by telling us how you got your device 'bricked'? What did you do? Does it boot in recovery/fastboot/diag mode? What happens when you plug-in charger?

First of all, thank you for your reply! Second, sorry for my bad Enlish!
So, i'm not a quite sure when the things goes to wrong way, but i will try to expose what i remember.
I wanted to install your Firefox OS build, but as you mentioned, i was installed Android first, then i started to update, but when i got a failed update i was remembered i have no installed  „ClockWorkMod recovery“. So, i started to flash recovery image and in first view everything was fine, but rebooting the device in recovery mode, it rebooted in Android recovery. (Here i must say, i'm not claim the recovery image is bad. I was tested few weeks ago and it was installed and worked fine, thanks!) So, unable to flash recovery image, make me to think it is possible over a Firefox rom only, so i've decided to re-flash to Firefox, but got „update failed“ again, so i decided to try to update via ADB, but during sending the package to the phone, i got: „failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)'“. Then i decide to reboot in Fastbood mod and then to boot ClockWorkMod recovery image without installing, but it was not possible, because Fastboot was unable to see the device......(next many similar actions as all of above, but always head the same result)
And now next most interesting: i,ve booted the device, holding Volume Up, Volume Down and Power alongside. Fastboot was steel don't see the phone, but i mentioned the EMMC is mounted, but it has more then 20 partitions, but more of them had undefined file system. So i,ve deleted all partitions and then formatted the EMMC. After rebooting, the phone is not able to boot in any mode!
And once again: I,m really sorry you must read my English, so thank you very much!

Well, it would be surprising if it booted if there's absolutely nothing to boot to. If you really formatted the eMMC there isn't even a bootloader to begin with.

 

You would need a full copy of /dev/block/mmcblk0 from a healthy device and some serious JTAG magic. I don't know anyone who could help you with that though. Any 'normal' debricking methods are not useful if you can't boot your device in any mode.

 

Answer to why ClockWorkMod got replaced with stock recovery:

 

Have you flashed ZTE updates to your device? It means that you'll likely have a script (/system/etc/install-recovery.sh) that will replace your recovery with the stock one during a reboot.

 
Boot the recovery without installing it (fastboot boot recovery-cwm60xx-kis3.img) and make a backup of your stock ROM like instructed. When you select 'reboot' to boot out of recovery it should ask two questions. Something about root (you can ignore that) and then a warning about your custom recovery being overwritten. Select the option to prevent that. You should be able to flash it to the recovery partition so that it will stick after that.

I have a backup, made by recovery-cwm60xx-kis3.img, but it's no matter anymore... That what i need to know, is there a any chance to boot device via USB-JIG method, or it is for Samsung phones only? And if i will boot the phone, can you give me the files that i need? Thanks!

ClockWorkMod only backups few partitions (/system, /data, /cache, /boot, /recovery). It's in no way complete backup of your entire eMMC and nowhere close what you'd need.

I won't because it's highly unlikely you're going to get your device booted without outside help (considering if you really formatted the whole eMMC).
 
You could always play dumb and try to return your device under warranty...
