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?

did you fix your problem ?

I have edited my build.prop and since then my K1S is in a boot loop. I lost somehow my superuser rights, so I am not able to rename my backup file to the original anymore. I am simply not able to mount /system r/w - However I am able to access it via adb. I have tried a lot of rooting soft, but none was able to "root" it again. Before my experiment I have easily rooted it with RootGenius.

So at the moment I have also a nice black brick.
