hi guys, I've probably fried the emmc on my phone...

I've tried everthing from recovery from toolkit and from odin (remains just fastboot I had not time yet) whatever I wipe or I flash on my phone doesn't matter all sticks there when I reboot (and my phone keep gooing in bootloop on cm logo)

So since it's unlocked I'm trying to find a way to brick definitely my phone, so I can take in warranty.

Anybody has suggestions to brick it??

Pull something off the motherboard. This may/may not work to get it replaced but will most definitely brick it.

I woldnt advise that at all, on my nexus 7 2012 I was popping the back off and my screwdriver slipped and knocked a resistor off the motherboard (making my GPS not work). I accidentally erased my bootlader a few months later and when I sent it in to warrejty they rejected it due to "customor induced hardware damage".

My intention of suggesting omapflash was to unbrick your phone,not to brick it :P. And as for the headphone port,according to ifixit,the headphone port and speakers are easy to replace(http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Samsu...+Teardown/7182)

@fracama87 Then instead of the headphone port, try using omapflash. Enjoy your Moto G
