[Q] Bricked M7-ul! Maybe beyond repair...??

OP bda714

17th January 2014, 12:43 AM   |  #1  
To anyone who wants a challenge....

First: I installed twrp in preparing for flashing a custom rom.
2nd: Format/wiped sys/dalvik/cache
3rd: when trying to flash recieved error: remote not allowed!
4th: received the advice to relock then unlock again and that would fix the error problem.
5th: relocked bootloader... (has always been S-on)
6th: felt I had been denied, critical, need to know information.... fastboot ver was 1.55 and no longer able to unlock. Is there a fix for this yet? Can anyone please help me? I will compensate for time if needed.... I feel I have tried everything and read a couple hundred pages of threads on the subject but seems no one has answered the same question or has had different variables.
7th: Begging for help.... PLEASE!!!

Well, it's not bricked, BUT you pretty much can't do anything at the moment!


For anybody reading this: STOP flashing a US Dev Edition firmware 4.06.1540.x on your non-Dev Edition phones with a relocked bootloader and S-On, chances of HTCdev getting to unlock bootloader again is close to zero, or really zero.

(please anybody feel free to correct me)


I don't know if this is due to updated hboot, or what HTCdev unlock generator takes into account, but if for example it takes into account CID and firmware, then your firmware .1540. is not "stock"; for CWS__001 it should be a .502. firmware.


So what are the options: wait for an ATT OTA 4.06 (or above) to be released extract the firmware.zip in it (which is signed) and flash that, then try to get an unlock token and hope it works.

I'm sorry this is not the answer you're looking for, but unfortunately it's the only I have. Maybe someone else has a better idea.

EDIT: since US-Dev Edition is supposed to be unlocked anyway, has anybody tried "fastboot oem unlock"??
EDIT 2: try it in both normal mode and in "fastboot oem rebootRUU" mode.

^^ doesn't work

I don't mess with any of that unless I'm s-off, so i won't be testing it anytime soon
