as the title says, my phone is not booting anymore, after I transplanted the motherboard from a frame with a broken screen into a new frame (from china).
RR => Resurrection Remix 5.8.5
CWM => ClockWorkMod Recovery 126.96.36.199-kitkat
TWRP => TeamWinRecoveryProject 3.2.1-1
I was using RR from the Rock Stable Setup on it before and it worked beautifully.
I performed the mainboard-transplantation according to the iFixit guide
I held the power button to boot the phone:
- It vibrated
- It showed this screen for a couple of seconds
- It vibrated
- Back to step 1
Then I tried to boot into recovery mode by holding the key combination on boot:
Same as above, but with this bootscreen
Then I tried to boot into download mode by holding the key combination on boot:
The warning to confirm download mode poped up and I got to see this screen.
I connected it to my PC and opened odin 3.09 and it recognized the device.
I tried to get adb and fastboot to see the device, but nothing worked. (In the old frame and before I broke the screen, it would be recognized at this stage)
I flashed TWRP with odin, odin showed the green "PASS!", but booting to recovery still failed.
I proceeded to flash a stock ROM, which had worked when I had issues with RR.
It worked, I went through the Android 5 setup process, enabled debug and connected adb.
adb saw the phone.
I rebooted to recovery and stock recovery booted correctly.
Sideloading anything with adb failed due to signature verification.
I then went back to download mode and flashed CWM successfully.
It now boots into recovery, but whenever I try to flash anything with CWM, it fails showing this screen
Or something similar (the photo comes from flashing RR 5.8.5)
I have both linux and windows properly setup and used both with adb, fastboot and odin (only windows)/heimdal (only linux).
I checked drivers and usb cables.
I opened the phone back up and checked all connections.
But I can't get any version of RR, CyanogenMod or LineageOS on there.
I've searched the internet, but people that have these kinds of problems after replacing parts of their phones, seem to only have driver issues or skipped steps in the manuals of custom ROM installations.
If you have any idea on what I could try or what I'm doing wrong or not doing, please leave an answer.
I'll keep this post updated below here:
(no updates, yet)
Thanks so much in advance
