Default [Q] CUBOT ONE - Bricked - Chinese android phone

Hi everybody,
recently i bought phone from China - Cubot ONE. I've been happy with it until i lost signal bars and cant connect to any network. So i google it and i found out how to fix it. Just reflash your firmware with another one. So i could not find any FW for Cubot so i downloaded for Cubot GT99 what is very similar phone and i hoped its would be working. Unfortunetly its didnt work good. After flashing this FW i could not switch on my phone or get to the recovery. I think its probably hard bricked, but iam not sure if its can be fixed when i send it back to supplier or if its any chance to do it by myself... Please iam desperate and i need any advice. Thanks.

what kind or core does Ur phone have?

I have a mtk6575 azense one, and as far today I couldn't find the original rom (i have backup of the original rom)
and I see a "universal mtk6575 rom" on internet, but I dont trust in it. because I read it can be dangerous using a kernel
from other models.

If u cant access to the recovery to flash another you may need to use "Flash tool" with the correct rom it'll fix the bricked status
I also use MTK droid tools

I have my backup but I doubt it will work on yours.

Hello, Thanks for your reply. I already sort that out. I use MTK droid tools to flash older android on my Cubot One. I think its was hard bricked, because i cant switch it on. So i try just put cable in with removed battery and hold down volume down button and after that my windows recognise phone and install driver. So i quickly flash it with stock android v0.3 and its works. But unfortunately still i could not get any network. There show me just no service... I find out that maybe i have lost imei, so i put it back with MTK Android tools. Now i got Imei numbers for both sim cards, it can recoginze my network provider but still ŃO SIGNAL! Could anybody tell me what is wrong now? I have no idea. Thanks anyway for any ideas. Regards.

Its quad core MTK 6589T, 1GB RAM, 8GB Rom, with two sim slots.
