i hope i didnt break any forum rules by posting it here to receive more audience attention

my original post is at:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2765131

the content is:
i have a Japanese HTC One or HTL22. I tried to sim unlock it as shown in this URL.

Code:

adb push misc.img /
adb shell
# dd if=/misc.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p19
# reboot

Upon writing this codes in cmd, i made a mistake: instead of /mmcblk0p19 I input /mmcblk0p1.
There was a message saying
Code:

/dev/block/mmcblk0p1: write error: No space left on device
257+0 records in
257+0 records out
131072 bytes transferred in ...

So i think the misc.img is transferred into the device (though it said no space left). And now the device wont boot.

Please help. Thanks.

EDIT: The device is now unbootable, when plugged into USB is not recognized by computer and wont be charged.

You overwrote one of your secondary bootloader partitions. That partition is very small, which is why you ran out of space.

Can you get into the bootloader screen by hard resetting and holding vol-down? If so, you should be able to to fix it by reflashing your firmware.

If your phone is stuck in the black-screen-unresponsive state, you're pretty much done.

As you may understand now, manually writing to partitions the way you did is extremely risky. It should only be done by experienced devs/modders who understand what they're doing and can be very careful doing it. It's not for noobs who just want to unlock their phones.

Why do you have this thread in about 4 different places.

Welcome to the world of paper weights. I think this thread should be made a sticky.

KIDS, DONT TRY THIS AT HOME.

No need to be sorry, sorry you lost your phone, there is an unbrick service thread at the bottom of this page, take a look and see if it can help.

Regarding the other threads , you will need to contact a site moderator to delete those.

I only said to make it a sticky as a lesson to all, I wasn't being funny.
