Secure boot status
So, i just bought this device from a friends friend who hasn't used it for a few months and even when i got it, it was 4.2 and WiFi was not working. But the problem is that i can't switch it on. When i try and press to switch it on, it doesn't do anything. Even in the notification bar, i can't turn it on.
So, what is the safest thing for me to do and fix this and is it even fixable?
The device is not rooted or flashed in any way. It's plain stock.
If somebody could reply with a step by step procedure to fix this, i would be really greatfull.
If that was my phone and I did not want to root it this is what I would do.
Download Ktoonsez International 4.3 kernel:
Then rename the file to "update.zip" and copy it from computer to the phone's
Before anything else, use the file manager which is in your app drawer just
to be sure that the filename is "update.zip".
(it cannot be anything else unless you root the phone)
Once you are sure of the filename, reboot the phone into the stock recovery mode
and select the option "flash update.zip" or the wording might be "install update.zip".
If you cannot find update.zip it means that you have re-named it wrongly
or you have not copied it to /sdcard.
It cannot be in some folder, it must be in the root of your sdcard.
If worst came to worst and it was my phone and the above did not work
I would simply root the phone and flash a custom recovery after that it
would be a very easy fix.
