BLACK SCREEN ON BOOT ISSUE FIX


First of all Big thanks to my dear friend Ano11 for the bootloader image

If you format /sys_boot by mistake from CWM recovery and you end up with Black screen no NOKIA and only Vibrating and cant fix it on NOKIA Care Suite or NOKIA Flasher this is how to fix it.

Human Beings Issue Details:
by formatting /sys_boot you have deleted the program that will connect your phone to NOKIA Care Suite so it will no longer recognize your phone neither any NOKIA Flasher and now this is how bring it back to let the NOKIA Care recognize it again.


Alians Tech Details about issue:
formatting /sys_boot removes the bootloader which has fastboot, the device will no longer be a phone it'll be just a flash memory with alot of partitions accessible from any linux device. and since the /sys_boot is located on /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 we just need to restore a bootloader image there and it will restore fastboot that will fix everything then with NOKIA Care or NOKIA Flasher etc. "WE HAVE ADB WORKING DO ANYTHING YOU WANT!!!!!!"


Now to how to fix it!!!

Requirements:
1- Ubuntu Live CD (Dont use any other variation or another Linux because i ONLY Tested it on Ubuntu)
2- Download Attachment File.
3- A Good USB cable( i strongly recommend the original cable to avoid problems)


Steps to FIX:
1- Boot up in a Working Ubuntu (or Ubuntu Live CD)
2- Download and extract the attachment in Home Folder
3- Open up Ubuntu Menu and look up (Disks)
4- Remove your NOKIA X Battery and Unplug it from any USB or charger, re-insert battery, then hold Power button untill phone Vibrates then release power button. after you do all that plug it in USB to your computer
** if you have done those steps perfectly you should see a new device in (Disks) application will say(something-qualcomm-something) depends on the type of your phone. you will see a table on the right when you click it that has 3 partitions and then many other partitions grouped up don't touch these at all**
5- click on the third partition from left it should be in size of 52MB.
6- right click it and choose (Restore Disk from an Image).
7- Browse to your Home folder then in (NOKIA X RM980 BOOTLOADER) and choose mmcblk0p3.img
8- it will ask you if you are sure click Restore.
9-Wait for it to finish. when it does close Disks then unplug phone, remove battery, re-insert it, power up your phone.


BANG NOKIA APPEARS!!! The phone is back to life!!! no cloning needed and no NOKIA Care Center Needed. you can now use NOKIA Flasher and NOKIA Care Suite to restore your phone to factory firmware or use XDA Furoms to install CWM back and your favorite Custom ROM

since we all do mistakes, i alongside alot of people have formatted /sys_boot partition on our dear RM-980.
that partition is actually the bootloader and without it the phone bricks.
the signs of that brick is black and no screen lights but a vibration that indecates "PLEASE HELP ME!!"
connecting it to windows will cause seeing a drive that windows can't detect and it will ask to format it which is the worst IDEA EVER!! and fastboot will never detect the phone.
if plugged in to Linux you'll get full control over all phone partitions including internal SD, system, boot, bootloader etc.
its easy to flash images from linux side using gparted or "disks in ubuntu which i use" but also fastboot can't be used.

all we need is an mmcblk0p3 dump to save all dead NOKIA X lives!!

it can be easily done on ADB on any computer if you are willing to help follow the following easy steps:

start up your nokia x RM-980, enable debugging, connect to USB and find an ADB then give it next comand:

Code:
adb shell
you should be in your phone shell. then:
Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p3.img
that will backup your bootloader as mmcblk0p3.img in root of your sdcard

now compress that in a zip and donate it here with your phone CODE (you can find it in the back of your phone)
I will collect the bootloaders for all the CODEs you people will send.
i don't think there will be much diffrence between them but.. we need to archive that since Microsoft is banning everything NOKIA X related out there!!
Thank you very much in advance

In case you do not see any partitions, In that case you have not only formatted ("emptied") this partition but removed all partitions, I assume. So you have to make a new partition (or even all partitions) prior to restoring the mmcblk0p3.img disk image. I have no experience with doing this on a phone (don't know how critical the location and order of partitions is), but I guess a partition listing of a working Nokia X will help you further. Later today when I am at home I hope I can post the partition listing for you.
