Default Mediatek 6592 / Newman K1S Unbricking

Hi all,

I have managed to hard brick my new Newman K1S MT6592 phone. It all happened when I was trying to re-partition the internal memory, and something must have messed up with flashtool. Now it doesn't switch on, respond at all, charge etc. I have a nice new shiny black brick.

But I understand that by shorting the motherboard, I might be able to fix it. So, with that in mind, I attach a photo of the motherboard and wonder whether anyone might be able to help me identify where to short and how the process works?

Thanks and fingers crossed.

Are you ABSOLUTY sure you hard bricked it (overwrote the preloader?) . If you remove the battery, and attach the phone to the computer , you see nothing happening in the USB detection of the computer?

Where did you get information that modifiing somthing on the mobo would do something?
