hi, i just had the same thing. it's not actually bricked from simply backing up. you can press home + volume up + power to enter recovery. then press power again to bring up the android system recovery menu, then make sure reboot system now is highlighted (is the first option and should be highlighted by default), press the volume up key to perform this action.

My I5S doesn't boot anymore, too.
I have tried to flash a newer Stockrom but it bricked my phone.
It still gets recognized from the Flshtool but I don't have a suitable Rom for my phone.

Plug Also looking for ROM: Goophone i5S MTK6572 512 MB Ram (goophone.cc)

Hi at all,

Yesterday I flashed the Rom (needrom website - goophone I5s 1gb version) the Rom worked a while then the battery gone empty since then the phone won't start any more.

I tried the delivered usb cable and an other no name cable ... Both don't work. What can I do to boot / load my goophone again?

If someone should have a solution for my loading problem:
Can someone please post a link to the original stock Rom?
Is there the possibility to flash a Rom with working softkeys for the back button?
The code "qemu.hw.mainkeys=0" didn't work

PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

Just try to press power+home button for 25/30 Seconds

this smartphone is very hard to understand.. usually when the smartphone go an preloader mode.. the battery starts to drain...

i think you have to connect the smartphone to a powersupply (not a PC) for 10 minutes.. and the try the POWER+HOME for 25 secs.
