Bricked Defy? Not yet, but almost
This is another of those bricked defy thread.
Everything was fine. I was on 4.3 (a couple of nightlies earlier version) and just downloaded the latest one from Quarx.
I went to TWRP and wiped cache, dalvik, system and data.
Now, what was strange is that I got a prompt that you do not have root, do you want to have root or something. I swiped for that.
The next thing I remember is that the phone rebooted and stuck on the red M (with honey bee) and showing version 7.1-11 (which has always been the boot up screen for me for last two years).
So, I removed the battery, pressed volume down and then Power button. I was in the green android bot screen. Pressed volume up and down and got into some recovery screen.
There are options to wipe cache, wipe data/ factory reset, install update.zip and reboot. I have tried all of these. Unfortunately none of those help me in getting back to normal.
I have an SD card, where I can copy the latest 4.3 ROM from my computer and rename it to update.zip. Will that help?
