    Post Mi 8 hard bricked but can get into EDL - What are my options?

    I ended up using a paid service on Telegram where a person with a subscription to some flashing software was able to flash my phone with a ROM from EDL mode using Teamviewer, so all good now and phone is working again. If taking this route be wary of who you use for this as I am sure there are...

    Thread Mi 8 hard bricked but can get into EDL - What are my options?

    I have managed to brick my Mi 8, I think due to trying to flash a Chinese rom but not sure exactly what I did, I had ultimately been trying to install LineageOS. The phone will only go into a bootloop with the Mi symbol showing, I cannot get it into recovery or bootloader by holding the buttons...

    Post [ROM] [7.1.x] LineageOS 14.1 OFFICIAL Builds (pme)

    I'm a bit confused by this 4g issue (which I have) and potentially being fixed by updating to the latest firmware. Is it possible to flash a firmware update without wipe? And I assume the latest firmware is compatible with this ROM so I don't need to be careful about which I install?

    Post The Nexus 5 Defects Thread

    Thanks. So if they receive the phone back and determine that there is nothing wrong with it they won't send you a new phone and presumably will just send your old one back? Does anyone have experience of the RMA process in the UK?

    Post The Nexus 5 Defects Thread

    I am considering requesting an RMA. I have read on here that some people are sent a phone prior to them having to return their defective phone, therefore they are never without a phone. Whereas some people say they have had to send their phone back before receiving a new phone. Why is this and...

    I've been getting really terrible battery life recently with several different nightlies. Like maybe only half a day with moderate use.

    I should have said in my original message, I have tried it but can't get it to work. Auto brightness is off, and brightness control is checked, and I've done a restart for good measure. I've tried it many times and with many different methods but I can't get it to work!?
