Axon 7 EDL Tool
BAT-program for Flash / Backup / Restore / Unlock the phone in EDL mode
Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM ...)

!!! Whatever you do, you do at your own risk !!!"
!!! If you are not sure of yourself do not use this program !!!


Special requirements (read first) !!!
1. The program must be unpacked :D
2. Before using the program, make sure that:
- It is desirable to copy the program to the root of the disc, for example: C:\Axon7_EDL_Tool\ or D:\Axon7_EDL_Tool
- You launched this program as administrator
- You have drivers installed, preferably original for Axon 7
3. Read carefully what the program displays on the screen (I specially wrote the tips, the information is very useful, many questions disappear)


Features of the program:
1. Automatically reboot the phone into EDL mode
2. Finds the connected phone and forces the COM-port speed to 115200
3. Can flash , backup, restore and unlock
4. Flash unlock files: aboot version B29 6.0.1 A2017U - (tested on A2017 (china): 6.0.1 and 7.1.1, as well as A2017G (europe): 6.0.1 and 7.1.1), returns the ability to boot into EDL mode via key combination, Google FRP Unlock
4. Analyzes folders for missing required files
5. and others ...)))


Structure of program folders:
1. Folder flash - in this folder you need to copy the files you want to flash
Subfolders:
folder full - if you want to flash full firmware (official, adapted for EDL mode), then in this folder you need to put all the files from the firmware for EDL mode:
its name usually looks like this: A2017 _......._ FULL_EDL
folder boot - if you want to flash your kernel file, you need to put a file named: boot.img in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
folder recovery - if you want to flash your recovery file, you need to put a file named: recovery.img in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
folder modem - if you want to flash your modem file, you need to put a file named: NON-HLOS.bin in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
folder splash - if you want to flash your splash file, you need to put a file named: splash.img in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
2. Folder backup - the folder contains backup copies of the phone partitions created by the program
Subfolders:
folder all - this folder contains backups of all partitions, except userdata
folder full - this folder contains backup of all partitions included in the FULL EDL firmware
folder boot - this folder contains a backup of the boot partition
folder recovery - this folder contains a backup of the recovery partition
folder modem - this folder contains a backup of the modem partition
folder splash - this folder contains a backup of the splash partition

3. Folder unlock - contains all the necessary files to unlock (do not touch it!)
4. Folder logs - contains all the logs of the program
5. Folder tools - contains all the necessary files for the program (do not touch it!)

I know it seems obvious, but if I flash the 'full edl' does that completely restore my phone to stock? Will i be able to receive ota as well? Thank you so much for the hard work btw! This is awesome!

yes, but receiving OTAs is overrated and usually non functional. like, if you have a G you probably won't get anything. If you install TWRP you may receive the OTA but you won't be able to install it. Just come hither and get the TWRP flashable update if you receive the OTA notification

New virsion!!! 2.03.2018
Changes:
1. Corrected the translation
2. Removed a message about the error of loading the programmer (it did not affect the working capacity of the program)
https://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=4435128&d=1519989507
Thnx for adapting (2.) !
It was indeed not a real error but just occuring on doing possible 2 or more steps after each other without reboot into edl.
Thnx for fixing that on request :good:

Ok, that's a good point. I'm currently running Darken's stock rom because it's the only one that has wifi calling which I need right now. I guess I'll just keep it like that for now. :D Thank you!

I'm trying to restore full EDL and it's stuck at "Loading the programmer: prog_ufs_firehose_8996_ddr.elf".

EDIT: Got it to work by either restarting my phone back to EDL mode or by restarting my PC.
