[Q] Fastboot boot openrecovery hung my phone. Any hope?
I was trying to update recovery and I typed the wrong commands in fastboot.
fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-18.104.22.168-m7.img
fastboot boot recovery openrecovery-twrp-22.214.171.124-m7.img
When that failed because "recovery" didn't exist I still didn't notice my mistake, and went with:
fastboot boot openrecovery-twrp-126.96.36.199-m7.img
creating boot image...
creating boot image - 10240 bytes
OKAY [ 0.232s]
OKAY [ 0.003s]
finished. total time: 0.240s
Since then my phone pretty much stopped working. The screen is on, but is hung - the power buttons and volume buttons do nothing. Here are some commands I tried
fastboot getvar all
getvar:all FAILED (command write failed (Unknown error))
finished. total time: 0.588s
rebooting into bootloader...
Even the reboot just hung there with no change in the device. Is it a paperweight now or is there a way back? Obviously I can't remove the battery and I've not unplugged the USB cable just in case
