Hello guys,

My wife tried to do the OTA update, but the phone had custom rom and the phone is now bricked.
It is relocked and s-off

I downloaded RUU_M7_UL_JB_50_BrightstarUS_WWE_1.29.1540.16.exe (Developer Edition)
and RUU_M7_UL_JB_50_BrightstarUS_WWE_1.29.1540.3.exe (Developer Edition)

However, none of them worked. It gives me error 140: bootloader version error. I know it has something about downgrading, but im not sure what to do.

its been 5 hours since Im trying to unbrick it, but unsuccessful so far.
I will greatly appreciate any solution.
here are some info of the phone.
version-bootloader: 1.55
version-baseband: 4A.20.3263.16
version-main: 3.22.1540.1
platform: HBOOT-8064
modelid: PN0712000
cidnum: BS_US001

thank you.

1- no need to be relocked/locked with S-Off

2- error 140? (i thought it would give error 155), but anyway, it's due hboot 1.55, you need to first & separately downgrade hboot to 1.44, check my guide in my signature in post #1 there's the hboot download link and instructions.

DO NOT GO S-ON!

I am downloading the RUU 3.22.1540.1 right now and see if it works. If it doesnt, is it possible to s-off without a rom in my phone?
I tried revone, but i needed the phone to be working. How about rumrunner?

Because that way, I could downgrade and then finish the work.

Right now all I can do with the phone is get to bootloader and twrp recovery.

Thanks

first try the ruu you are downloading

revone will only work with hboot 1.43 - 1.44. you have to use rumrunner to s-off hboot 1.55 with a rom like arhd 31.6 or cyanogenmod 10 (because of their unsecured kernel)

or you can also go back to stock with a guru reset rom which you can adb push to the device and install via custom recovery.
