Hey everyone,
I really have a problem!
I somehow destroyed my software, by trying to do an partition on my own.
I found a solution for my problem in another forum, but I really don't understand how to do it.
This is the solution/answer:
__________________________________________________ _____________
Yes, this is a big problem.
Had one same incident before, and my technical colleague came up with a solution. You can only fix this by flashing your phone:
For GURU's only!. The alternative is to use the windows flasher tool
1)Download the original image ww.fairphone.com/downloads/softw...-07-31.zip
1)
unzip the file
2)
enable usb debugging
4)
push EBR1 on the phone
adb push Fairphone_1.6_Cherry_FUSE_Image_31-07-2014/EBR1 /mnt/sdcard/
5) (become root)
adb shell
6) (override the partition inforation)
dd if=/mnt/sdcard/EBR1 of=/dev/ebr1
7) reboot info recovery and wipe data
reboot recovery
and wipe//format
Hope this helps

I have two problems. First of all I don't undertand every step and secondly the first link (ww.fairphone.com/downloads/softw...-07-31.zip) is no longer available.

Is there an other solution do flash my fairphone and revert the partition ???

Does this link sove your second porblem? http://storage.googleapis.com/update...2014-07-31.zip

Have you tried a factory reset? https://forum.fairphone.com/t/how-to...-fairphone/209

Where do you run into problems while following the instructions -any specific steps?

Cheers!

I'm not sure what your exact problem is, and what the state of the phone is, or what operating system you're running on the computer that you're using to fix the phone. That being said, if it is completely bricked, the instructions on the wiki may be of help: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...lly_bricked_it . This is the alternative mentioned in the post you quote - if you feel uncomfortable using adb, this may be easier (though I have not tried it myself). You will need the image binaries for your model that are available at the bottom of the page here: https://fairphone.zendesk.com/hc/en-...iple-versions-. This is the same file as you need in step1 of the instructions you posted. The update to version 1.8 was postponed because of problems for some users, so you may want to stick to the 1.6 binaries.
