Motorola Edge 20 Lite
Is there any way to unbrick my hard bricked Motorola Edge 20 fusion?

I tried to flash stock rom via lmsa tool and it failed.
Whenever it is connected to pc / is charging, only response is the white led blinking light.
It is also not detected by pc too.

Edit : Changed the board under warranty and is working fine!!

I don't have a solution but... it's been 11 days now. Have you had any luck getting this device to work?
Asking 'cause I own one and plan to root it.
 
If you are able to power your device into the bootloader (usually to hold power button and a volume key when powering on), and you are able to scroll down to "unlock bootloader", that will then allow your device to be able to post into fastboot mode.

You will just need the fastboot drivers from google https://developer.android.com/studio/run/win-usb installed on your pc, then you will be able to send fastboot commands to your device.

Your options at this stage would be to find the stock images for your device, or just download TWRP and Lineage.


This video below is for the Shield, but the process is all the same for android, minus how you power into the bootloader.

The shieldroot tools will not work for phones, but you can dl them and ammend the code to flash your OS.

This video will just teach how to unlock the bootloader, how to install the fastboot driver, and some TWRP knowledge if you are unfamiliar. Starting it at 1:08 would skip the shield stuff

I just came to know that edge 20 lite and edge 20 fusion have different hardware. Mine's edge 20 fusion(Indian variant) and I accidently flashed lites rom which resulted in hardbricking the phone. I searched for edge 20 fusions rom and it is nowhere to be found. The Motorola's flashing software (lmsa) also downloaded the wrong rom for my phone as both the phones model number are same. So I recommend you to wait a bit longer if you have edge 20 fusion.

Thank you very much for your help but my phone is working fine now!!. I hope this post will help others.

As for my phone, It was totally a hard brick and the only solution to it was to change the phones board.

Whoa, thanks for the heads-up! There should be a separate forum thread for Edge 20 Fusion since it runs different hardware.

BDW, if you don't mind answering, how is the Motorola warranty and service in India? Did they charge you for the replacement? Was it a good experience?

The service is good. If the phone is under warranty, then there is nothing to worry. I've got my phone repaired completely free of cost.

i just recently purchased an edge 20 fusion (australian variant) and am currently in the 3 day waiting period for OEM unlocking to become available.

i'm still mostly a novice at all of this, however hopefully someone can confirm for me or correct me:

does unlocking the bootloader, and then rooting the phone (install magisk, etc.) not require a rom? do i only need a rom if i want to change from the factory stock (+updates) rom i currently have?

or do i need a rom in order to get magisk working properly, and pass safety net, etc. too?

I also have a fusion, I've used lmsa to download the stock rom but I can't tell if it's for the moto edge 20 lite or for the fusion. How can you tell?
