Ruus won't even try cos it won't boot, official branded roms with the right cid the same android version give a same version error before it even tries to flash.
Different version roms that are right cid freeze on flashing bootloader be it in the form of a PG88IMG from SD or in fastboot.
And unbranded roms used with a gold card freeze on flashing bootloader.
The phone won't restart to bootloader from bootloader and any programs that try to restart the boot loader fail to managed it at the bootloader freezes with battery pull being the only way to shut phone down and try again.
When I got this phone from a friend it never booted past t-mobile screen and he says it just stopped working one day, its not keen messed with and as a result I think usb debugging was not enabled ether although fastboot does work for some commands strangely.
Basicly anything that trys to work with the bootloader gets told where to go by the phone lol
If it was s-off I could have used the work around from booting the o.s from the SD card but its not.
I think the emmc has corrupted from agressive multiple app updates from the marketplace and think its beyond help, I've spent hours trying everything lol. Now I just want to know if the gold card I made can be reused in other phones and what a format would do to the card.
