Thumbs up How to unbrick Samsung droid Charge!!

Hey guys found a way to unbrick Samsung droid charge and revert back to stock.


1. Download and install Odin found here ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1085190 ) unzip and open

2.Download this file and unzip ( CI510_VZW_EE4_ALL_ONE-LTE-CP_REV03_user_CL1014954.tar.md5.7z) from here ( http://www.multiupload.com/6WJ2SFUKO6 ) or original thread where i found this file is from here ( http://androidflip.com/android-2-3-4...talling-guide/ )..

In case it fails and it just keeps failing try this other file is not stock but it is 2.3.4 and it works great here is a link to find the file ( http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5PUB8UY7 ) and it also find a mirror download here ( https://rapidshare.com/#!download|96...%2834fa3175%29 ) i tried it guys and it does work.

3. set phone to download mode, do this by taking battery of phone, plug phone into computer and hold Volume down, a Yellow triangle with a working android will appear.

4. Click on odin you will see your phone come up under ID:COM, now do not click on anywhere but on PDA thats where you will have to find the file you downloaded on step 2 and make sure is the unzipped file. once u find it, click on open then start.

5. Be patient this can take up some time, once is done the box will turn green and say pass, at this time your phone will no longer have the Yellow triangle and you can unplug and place the battery back in and turn phone on.. once again be patient when turning phone on it will take a little while to complete.

i tried this and it does work, my Droid charge was bricked and now it works.

Thanks to xda-developers where i was able to find odin and also thanks to androidflip.com where i was able to find the Droid Charge stock rom to flash it back using odin.

Hope this helped everyone needing help.

Thanks for posting this, but it isn't the end-all-be-all. I tried to recover from a bad flash using this method and it failed.

I got the error message seen in this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1111486

The method in that post failed to help me recover.

I finally found this method (which is linked much later on in the thread above):
http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/d...-software.html

and it worked perfectly for me.

So, if the first method from the OP fails, you have the Samsung PST flash utility that may help.

We've known about this for a while, but thanks. There's a "How to fix your phone" thread in development which also includes a pit file you use in combination with that .md5

Also, you were probably just bootlooped, not bricked.

I thought being bricked meant not being able to get into even Download Mode.

yeah but even then its not completely hopeless, there are USB jigs that can force it into download mode and this 'Unbrickable Mod' thing that requires tinkering with the internals which is supposedly fool proof
