Help w/possible bricked G2!
I gave my rooted (mahdi rom) ATT G2 to my teenage son seeing I was no longer using it. He said he tried to update the Mahdi ROM and now it is bricked. From my questioning him all I know is when he was installing the mahdi update, but he did not flash the D800 patch. Noticing there was a problem I think he tried to re-flash recovery or something. All he would get is "fastboot mode".
I think I am a pretty smart guy and have been on XDA for years flashing and what not with no issues - but this one has me stumped. These are the steps I have taken:
1) Finally got it into download mode and when I try to flash the tot file for ATT, it says incorrect model. Says the model is the D801 (t-mobile)! I was like what?
2) So I tried to flash the D801 tot and it seemed to work, but the flash would ultimately "Fail" in the LG Flash Tool. It would boot up into the t-mobile rom but I would get errors and reboots - very unstable. AND the IMEI was wiped!
Does anyone have any ideas what I can try next? I would like to somehow change the model back to the D800 and flash the ATT tot file. Maybe it is truly just bricked!?!?
Any help would appreciated! Thanks!
