Looks like my phone will be going to its grave shortly as I can't find spare parts for it anywhere!

I had kind of the same thing here. I don't know HOW to fix this, but I at least just ordered spare parts (power button) from some ali express shop. Who knows...

It sucks that these phones aren't readily made anymore. They're so awesome.

Has anyone successfully replaced a Jiayu G4S screen and has no issues whatsoever with flashing kitkat or lollipop?

@TsakosGr Did it work for you? I just ordered a Jiayu G4 screen + digitizer and am curious to see if it will work well....

I've been using my jiayu G4S for a year (at the beginning I had to replace the loud speaker and change the ROM cause Chinese' was awful, I did it using flashtool without any problem).
My phone fell down to the floor once more, but this time the phone wouldnt work.
- When I plug it to the laptop or the charge it gets energy, and the simbols of charging are shown on the screen properly.
- When I try to turn it on it simply doesnt work.
- When I run the test memory with the flashtool it says that NAND FLASH WAS NOT DETECTED
- Of course the recovery mode doesnt work.
- I've tried to "install" different ROMs (officials & unofficials as well), I've tried to upgrade the firmware. Nothing worked.
- So I tried formating "the whole flash except bootloader" (didnt work) and the "whole flash".
- Ive tried dozends of different combinations of the mentioned operations, including pushing combinations of buttons, putting back the battery in the middle of the process, not removing it, etc.

- Everything, I've tried everything what I could read about or I thought about, without any positive outcome.

Showing the charging symbols, percentages and the green led makes me have some hope, but Im starting to believe that the NAND flash is physically broken

So, Could anyone help me pleaaaaase? I would really apreciatte any advise or option.
You can answer back in this forum or send an email to sellocom@hotmail.com

Millions of thanks in advance

My gut feeling is that the NAND is dead, but I lack the experience to say for sure

Notifications also sound from the rear speaker when headphones are plugged in which really annoys me too (Samsung devices do this too).

Did you find a solution?
