Hey guys,

I have a Lumia 800 with a "messed up" Qualcomm bootloader. Here's what's different about it:

- Power+Vol.UP button combination doesn't work. Every other combination works great (FTM, Hard Reset, etc.).
- Since that combination doesn't work, I can't get to OSBL mode without NSSPro.

- When in OSBL mode, it shows up as Qualcomm CDMA Technologies MSM on Windows, OS X and Ubuntu but doesn't show its NAND partitions.
- In the Device Manager on Windows, the device has a tiny yellow warning sign like it's not working properly or it doesn't have the correct drivers. I tried installing/uninstalling the Qualcomm drivers from the other thread but nothing changed.

Is there any way to "repair"/reset the bootloader or force it to show its partitions ? Obviously I'm very careful with it so it doesn't get replaced with a DLOAD one.

I can put the USB debug logs from any/all of the OS if it might help.

Please help if you have any idea. Thanks.

I have tried all kinds of things on Windows.

I tried forcing the generic USB Mass Storage Device driver but it said it couldn't "start" the device.

I also installed all kinds of Qualcomm drivers I could find. I found the correct one, Qualcomm HS-Diagnostics 9006 (COMx), though unsigned (and still showing the yellow warning sign). Lumia still doesn't show the partitions.

Installed QPST (had weird errors about not being able to register a lot of DLLs while installing) and the Lumia didn't even appear in the devices list. (might be because of the broken install, I don't know)


Any ideas ?

Mine does the same thing... My guess is that it is a intermediate version between full dev qualcomm bootloader and nokia dload that they rushed out.
What's your phone info?

My Lumia's information (weird bootloader):
Firmware: 12070
Hardware revison: 112.1402.2.3

Friend's (Nokia DLOAD):

At least, I'm not the only one.

Here's mine:

OS: 7.10.8107.79
Firmware: 1600.2489.8107.12072
Hardware revision: 112.1402.2.3
Radio SW version: 1.6.00.24
Radio HW version: 8255
Bootloader version: 7.35.0.0
Chip SOC version: 0.74.2.1
IMEI: 3592890464xxxxx

Product Code: 059L702
Basic Product Code: 059J2N6
Type Designator: RM-801
Production SN (PSN): 004370FAB (< copied this because it seemed interesting)

That's all I found on WP, NCS and NSSPro. Where did you find the other info ?

I know that mine came from Vodafone Spain and 11414 firmware. Interesting, right ? Both from Spain.

My phone is the Unlocked Spanish country version, came with 11412.

I got the information from the diagnostics app (dial ##634#). I don't know if the diagnostics from 12072 has all this data (it should), I haven't updated mine from 11500.
Where did you get the PSN?

The question is: it is related to the country variant or to the production run?

I found the PSN on both NSSPro and NCS. Look in the Extended Info in NCS, I think.

My Lumia's info from Diagnostics:
ROM Language: 0C0A (doesn't say "(Spanish(Spain))" or anything, just 0C0A)
ROM version: 7.0.8107.0
OEM Device Name: RM-801 EU 214
Mobile Operator: VOD-ES

So far the only similarity is that they're both from Spain.

Nothing new, I guess ?

I'm thinking of trying NCS' "Refurbish" or "Recovery".
Anyone care to explain how do they work or what do they do exactly ?

I still don't want to replace the bootloader with Nokia's; I'm looking if there's a way to "refresh" the bootloader or something like that.

just take the battery out and insert after 10 or more second..then press and hold the vol up and insert the usb cable while holding vol up ....usb should be connected to pc from other end...after u inserted usb in phone u feel a short vibration, then leave the vol button and u'll be in qpst mode..

@debbuger

Are you sure that would work ?
I mean, did you have the same problem and you fixed it by removing the battery ?
