So, you've broken a rom and xRecovery wont start? Given up... dont!

I suppose it has pretty much every other use case.

Without futherado heres the guide:

All you need to do is in 7 easy steps.

What you Need:
Flashtool 0.2.5

A Stock Rom FTF file (for now)

If you are not sure download the GENERIC version for your device.

1: Unzip Flashtool to your desktop

2: Place ftf rom file in %desktop%/FlashTool/firmwares

3: Run FlashTool.exe, Click the Flash button and select the Firmware you downloaded.

4: When Prompted to connect your phone in flashmode. Hold the back button, and plug your phone in to the computer to connect in FlashMode. The LED will go green, if it doesn't, turn your phone off again and try again! or come here for help.

5: Press OK

Quote:

If you receve an error, please open the 'drivers' folder (%desktop%/flashtool/drivers/) and run the exe file. to install the flash driver, once installed. try step 3-5 again!

6: Wait 15 minutes. Make yourself a coffee or beer

7: Now your phone should be stock. You should be crying and happy at the same time.

BONUS STEP: for easy root, turn on phone and open flash tool (connect phone.) and press ROOT (make sure you have USB Debugging enabled)


If this helps you, comment confirm and thanks

SEUS won't work if you rooted your x10. SEUS tells you that there isnt any firmware for your phone. So this way if you rooted and used a custom rom you will get it to work again.

I was under the impression, brick means turning your phone into a worthless paper weight.

It does, but as we're not yet flashing bootloaders the chance of it literally happening is next to none, so it's more of a "soft brick" right now because we're able to unbrick quite easily by using SEUS or the flashtools.
