Help! SAT phone boots to insta-Download mode, won't unlock and having trouble getting EDL (9008) mode
So during flashing of LOS 17, Treble 5.1 and others, went back to Oreo8 and during OST flash cable loosened and seemingly stuffed bootloader unlock state. Now can go through unlock process, it insta boots to Download mode and says is not unlocked. Do unlock again and the process repeats. No ANDROID to boot to. Stuck in Download mode.
Attempting to engage 9008/EDL mode to salvage my SAT.
, following your video to enable EDL (9008) mode using testpoint method. Battery is disconnected, phone plugged into laptop USB port. Though I get no X to show battery is disconneced. Also getting no response from the laptop after touching motherboard testpoint to GND for 10+ secs to indicate it's seen the phone. Does your method work with SAT phones? Which 9008 driver are you using? Should the phone be turned on in any way? Thank you
EDIT: soldered a wire to the test point so could GND it while pressing button to switch phone on. Did that, laptop showed a new 9008 port in Device Manager. Proceeded to OST emergency flash SAT 127 CN firmware and now on way to rebuilding phone back to stock OREO with enhancements.
