Bricked on Mega and trying to brick theother one
pleonasm;54243018] As far as I can tell, the new update will puke if you don't have the original OEM screen. My screen cracked, I replaced it with a new one off of ebay, and all was well... until I took the OTA update. Now I'm in the exact same boat as you. Exact same behavior, and nothing I try works.[/QUOTE]
I have two mega's. cracked both, replaced both and one got the update, and after the update I lost all "touch". I could not unlock my phone, could not do anything but look at it. Samsung had me do a factory reset so now the phone is sitting waiting for me to enter my gmail address and set up the phone, I was severely corrected by a ATT tech for using the work "bricked". I told him that I used that word because ATT would not let me use the word of my choice, f&$#*d. He also wanted to know why i just didn't set the phone backup. I asked how to do that when there was no touch response from the screen, he also said to bad, if you dont want the update, you're gonna get the update so live with it.Now the update is going to take out my only other phone, as it too had a screen replacement. Was thinking of putting back in the cracked screen to do the update but would guess that once the new screen is back in, it will still lose all touch ability. What is this, some kind of way to ensure the carrier gets their full rip off price if you don't get them to replace the screen for several hundred dollars?
