I have read many similar posts implying different solutions with this problem, tried tons of methods to make it work, but unsuccesfull.
Anyway...a few days ago I recieved an X1 from my cousin. No hardware problem, scratched or dropped device.
The main problem is (i've met this problem on different posts, but no one could find an answer): the X1, when booted, it starts on bootloader/ flashscreen (the 4 colour screen) everytime showing info :
If I connect the X1 to the PC via USB, or if I plug the charger in, it boots normally, and the phone works just fine. ANOTHER PROBLEM is that the PC does not recognize the X1, so I cannot HardSPL it using OliNex....!!!!?!
I know the current SPL version is a SSPL, so I can't flash custom ROM's. It's frustrating because I've spent days trying to get a solution, I'm not a newbie on this one, I've done it many times before.
I used up all the methods I could think of, including flashing an official ROM, radio, and returning to SSPL (I recogn it wasn't the case...but still). In this moment, I flashed it to Official Vodafone UK bla-bla-R3 doesn't matter, because it is not branded.
I really could use your help, guys, because I can't take my charger or usb with me everywhere I go just to start my phone, in case I need to turn it off or something.
I'm stuck, and don't know what else to do, I know the procedure to HardSPL and flashing a custom/ official ROM, but I can't go on because of the fact that by any ways, I can't get the X1 to be recognized by ANY PC. Tried ActiveSync on XP, WMDC on Vista and Win 7...the Mitty procedure is buggy, couldn't get pass the recognizing of the USB (lol !!!!)....also tried using SE Update Utility Service, no result since the X1 is not recognized... It already has SPL 0.78.0000, so I guess SEUS fails from the point of idea.
I've also tried using X1-Manual-SSPL.exe....no chance..!
Tried also to flash from MicroSD a custom ROM (knowing and assuming through the absurd that it will work inspite having SPL 0.78.0000), but it always get's stuck at the grey "Loading..." screen
I would really apreciate some proffesional help, because I'm starting to think I'm not skilled enogh for an X1 ))) I don't have the necessary resources at this point to bring the phone to a GSM Service
So...kindly...PLEASE HELP !!!
