This does work. I have just gotten to download mode after coming from hardbrick QCMUSB_DLOAD mode. You MUST use something > 32g SDHC. I Used 64g SDXC, still worked. I'm back up and running.
Excellent! truly Excellent. XDA community is GREAT!
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
