Is your DEFY / DEFY+ bricked??

FLASHING WITH STOCK ROM

1.Download and install usb driver from here http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/...iver_5.5.0.exe

2.Download the sbf file from here
DEFY:http://sbf.droid-developers.org/umts_jordan/list.php (Based on your choice)

DEFY+: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/umts...nplus/list.php (Based on your choice)

3.Download RSD Lite from here http://www.multiupload.nl/8KGA2FPSMI

4.Remove your battery.

5.Press and hold power button and vol + button.

6.Put the battery back holding those buttons.

7.Now your phone will start and a blank screen will appear, now release those buttons. It will show the Bootloader.

8.Connect your phone via USB,now bootloader should display Transfer Mode:USB.(Drivers might install in your PC.If it install,wait till installation completes).

9.Open RSD Lite as administrator.

10.Hit show devies. Now your device must be displayed(If not drivers were not installed. Check for it.)

11.Now choose the sbf file.

12.Hit start. Be patient it will take some time.

13.Sometimes your phone reboots automatically and result column will say pass. If that doesn't happen,it will ask you to reboot manaully and your phone will be stuck in MOTO logo.
- Now remove your USB cable and remove battery. Hold power button and vol + button, you will get that screen.
- Now connect usb, now it result should say pass.
- Press the power button and start the phone. First boot will take some time (Min of 10 minutes or more).

If you are still stuck in bootloop

1.Remove your battery.

2.Hold the power button and vol - and put the battery.

3.You will enter into Motorola stock recovery.

4.Give factory rest and wipe cache.

Unhappy
I had already done all that, all the steps correctly, and the battery 100%.

drivers are updated but the problem is when I enter in the recovery mode <3e> I can not access any of the four options (reboot, apply recovery, wipe data and wipe cache) can change options but never confirmed, it seems that does not receive commands the power button.

below in yellow I see the following message :

Quote:

E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/caller
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log




also used the Chinese ROM to downgrade boot
Seriously, to solve this has to be Ninja

Try pressing both vol+ and vol- for selection. If doesn't work, try flashing Retail British rom in from that link. It will work i used that when my DEFY got bricked. It will work. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

when I press the two buttons at the same time, back on the previous screen (with the "Android +!") push the two buttons toggles in and out of the recovery options.

I have a Bayer Defy MB525. and was no downgrade, do not know why this so, because I was with the Ms2ginger before the problem

the link has 3 versions of british retail, I installed the second

but it is no boot, I'll try the latest version (or all if necessary)
anyway, thanks for the help.

Thank's art-jcd but the Chinese do not start, black screen only ... This recovery does not accept touch screen

... I know all the procedures and installation root, the problem is I can not apply the wipes

know what to do, just do not know how to do

SAMHUI94 ... Same Problem ?? (Click Thank's )

I think many people will still go through the same situation, a lot of confusion between kernel.

I applied last sbf british proposed by janeindiran, but it did not work

my Defy is MB525 (Bayer) can only do turn-on with the ROM DEFYPLUS_U3_4.5.1 134_DFP-231 I think is the Nordic ...

... does anyone know if there other tools to try access the recovery menu?

If you flash the rom all data will be lost. Why are you try to access recovery menu. Try this:JRDNEM_U3_3.4.2_177-003_BLUR_SIGN_SIGNED_USAJRDNEMARAB1B8RTGB03A.0R_PD S03C_USAJRDNFRYORTGB_P019_A010_HWp3_Service1FF.sbf .gz

Don't enter recovery until first boot gets completed. Usually recovery does show those messages.

Tell whether it works??

until now recovery always showing this message, i ever waiting for the end of RSD but didn't work ...

My bootloader is locked, I cannot downgrade, so I think the Defy ROM U32xx or U33xx not will work, I tried several but nothing happens, the red logo appears, enable recovery (corrupted as shown in picture) and stay in bootloop only when i flash 4.5.1-134_DFP-231xx

I Change to RSD Lite 5.6 - Win7(5.5.0 x64 Drivers), Win XP (with 5.5.0 x86 Drivers) <<< All Updated

A N D ...

Nada, Nothing !

in the past i loved motorola, today i HATE, my next Android only with unlocked bootloader


i think theres no Ninja who can help me

BTW : Thanks a Lot !

you might of upgraded the kernel to high. I tried to install 231 and it failed and I tried so many roms with all failing! I flashed with a 2311 rom and it worked.

Not sure if you used this kernel but anything lower will not work. Also you cannot root 231.

If you have 231 have a read of this link to root it

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1542956

You should be able flash them threw RSD lite it wone get you back to stock rom but it will get your phone working.

If you know you dont have 231 kernel I would try other options first as you cant downgrade from it thats why no other roms would work for me.
