Sorry,
before I go into some list of try this, try that stuff. Lets start with a simple question to you. Was your phone working before you flashed that stock backup?


If you can boot to boot menu, (hold volume up while turning on)

First try to boot recovery and do a reset.
If that does not help do these things:

Then -open to fastboot
- flash twrp
- boot to menu again
- open recovery
- flash magisk

If cannot get to boot menu.

- use sp flash tool
- flash patched boot.img

SIM Slot 2 Gone
Hi everyone. I've got a Blu Vivo Xi+ and received an OTA for a security patch dated December 5th (got the OTA push last night though). After updating (system update via settings - my wife just clicked it and didn't ask if she should first), it looks like it has completely removed sim slot 2 from every menu. I have two of these phones and on the one that I did not get the update from when I go to settings it shows 2 sim slots with 2 different IMEI numbers, on the one that DID get the update it now only shows sim slot 1 and IMEI 1. I can only use sim slot 2 (my sim card is tiny and only fits in slot 2, sim slot 1 is for the larger sim cards). Has anyone else had this problem or have any clue where I should start looking for a fix?

Android Security patch level - Dec 5th 2018
Baseband MOLY.LR12A.R3.MP.V22.1 2018/12/03 16:13
Kernel version 4.4.95
build number O11019
Customer Build version BLU_V0300VV_V8.1.05.05_GENERIC 03-12-2018 22:13
Hardware version P3.2

I'm new to the phone but not new to rooting and installing twrp and things like that. If anyone has any questions I should be able to answer them with no issue. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, if it is just let me know and I'll remove it. Thanks in advance.

I think this is a great place to post info on our phone. I started the thread, so I'm biased

I have follow your guide but nothing happen, maybe it need certificate file from BLU so that it can reflash the sw, using the backup one cannot flash back.

1. Can you get to fastboot mode?
If yes, try reset(wipe) from there.
fastboot -w


2. Can you get to recovery mode?
If yes, did you do factory reset?

EDIT:

I just went back to your original post with photo of flashing. I see you have changed the default flash from recommended "download only" to "format all + download". This was a very bad mistake. You may have very much trouble getting your phone to work again. All the help threads I have come across seriously warn against using format on ANY device that had secure boot layout. (99.99% of all new devices have, afaik).
Your friend who shared the auth file hopefully can help again.

I'm seeing this update now on my wife's phone. And it asked if she wanted to download it. It also explained that it is now eligible for Verizon service, and that the 2nd sim slot will no longer work. It's been there for 2 days and I've told her to not let perform the update.

We are in the US and use Metro as our carrier, so I'm going to go get her a new sim (the bigger one, hers is small) and do the update. You just need a new sim is all so you can use the other slot.

I wonder why they'd get rid of the second Sim, it was one of the reasons I went with this phone. I have yet to see this update. Also, I use Cricket and went in and asked if they had any of the adapters (usually the part that's left over when you pop the nano out of the micro SIM card) and they just gave it to me.

Blu added Verizon support, looks like they may have accidentally done some firmware pushes to non verizon users. I can't post an outside link but if you head to the main blu page, there is a pdf explaining the vzw firmware disables the second sim.


I'd contact support maybe they can push a non verizon build out.
