Prompt [Q] EBR missing in T699

Some of you may be familiar with my trials with my T699. To make a long story short, (see that story here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2528444) (thanks gee one!)
I was attempting to put CM on my Relay and I ended up hard bricking it.
I can now boot but I need a SD card installed to do it.

Recently I was playing around with adb and was running logcat which dumped a whole mess of wonderful information.
The line I thought was important was the following -

I/rmt_storage( 125): No EBR found

It is my guess that I messed up (corrupted) the EBR and that is why I am dependent on the external SD card.

My question is, does anyone know how to restore the EBR to working condition? I have tried to use odin to put the stock
image on but I think it is just over-writing the image on the SD card. If it can be done using adb that would be very great too since
it appears to be working well.

Oh, and the other thing I noticed, if I do not put the SD card, with image, into the slot I just boot into QHSUSB-DLOAD mode.
Which means much but is not useful at this time.

Thanks all,


I have added the first 25 lines of the logcat -

Prompt More on de-bricking

I have been continuing my hunt on how to permanently de-brick my T699. The following thread does not leave me with
much hope . I know it is for Evita on the HTC One but I see similar behaviour when I hook my T699 to linux.


If anyone can comment on this it is greatly appreciated.
