You need an EDL cable

So I've finally managed to make the phone work on edl and start downloading the image, but I keep getting this error

I've checked previous posts and tried to hit download right after it became available, but couldn't make it work

Hello, I need help :c

No, the partition sectors are different.....I've been working on that one since I posted yesterday, almost done, just need to figure out sectors 0-34.

edit: added rawprogram0.xml and the first 34 sectors before the sbl, which I have labelled (possibly incorrectly) as gpt.bin

Binarez, give that a go.

Edit 2: looks like my gpt.bin (first 34 sectors) is actually gpt_main0.bin

Edit 3: using the aforementioned guide, I created gpt_both0.bin with the mkgpt script and have attached. Scrap it, tested with gpt_main0 from the mido firmware and the resulting gpt_both0 isn't the same.

Edit 4: I have corrected the partition sizes and sector counts, please disregard previous partition and rawprogram0 xml files. Version 2 should be good now

Edit 5: added gpt_backup0

Edit 6: I have attached patch0.xml. I was able to get the ParititioningTool.py to run on my zf3 but it produced a slightly different rawprogram0.xml file (added 0.5kb to every partition?), lol. The patch0.xml file looks ok compared to other files, so I think we've got everything for someone to be the guinea pig, lol.

Here is the output of our parsed GUID partition table in case anyone is curious. I used the gpt_parser.py script.

I'm not sure how much help I can be, sold my phone last year. I might have some files kicking around, but they were never tested as I never bricked it enough to need them. I think most people in this thread resorted to going to a service center as an EDL cable was required, last I checked.

Pray for my Zenfone, lol

That is so sad

My phone just "die" after I tried to do a reboot from the recovery mode, that just because it "freeze" and didn't response (freacking impatient)

I've been reading a lot but i'm lost

So, if I have access to a functional Zenfone ZE552kl, could that means something?

My phone has the "symphtons" of and OLD “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” mode, is there any way I can fix it? :(

Thank you so much for your previous answer and your time

From what I've read in this thread, if you don't have access to fastboot or recovery mode, I think you're out of luck as you need the EDL cable. I know some phones need to be fully discharged or the battery removed for 1min to allow access to fastboot in these situations, but I'm not sure it applies to the ze552kl. If that doesn't work, I think your only option is a repair shop, unless you can find an EDL cable, but even then there's no guarantee it's recoverable.

嗨,如果这里有人知道如何使用Qualcomm工具或任何工具来解开我的手机,您的输入将受到高度重视!

我用砖砌了华硕ZE552KL ...,我知道怎么做:它已经装满了,我启动了一个渴望内存的应用程序,结果停滞了。该应用程序可能在本地缓存了一些东西。我按住“开机”按钮将其重新启动,但它根本无法启动(黑屏,所有LED均熄灭等)。在某些在线文章中将其称为OLD“ Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” MODE(最差的AFAIK)。将手机连接到Win7机器时,我有一个端口打开,名称为“ Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008”。我没有获得高通磁盘驱动器。

我找到了这个指南(不能发布URL,但可以发布网址。我尽可能地遵循了说明。这意味着我卸载了系统上的所有Qualcomm设备,安装了正确的驱动程序(QualcommDrv / Allx64,我安装了64位Windows)和QFIL的正确版本(QPST工具)。我无法从这部手机中取出电池,因此必须跳过“ 5秒钟取出电池”步骤。在插入USB电缆之前/期间/之后,我尝试了各种按键组合。

我到了要尝试从8675_W00刷新文件的地步,但是其中提供了MBN文件(prog_emmc_firehose_8936.mbn + rawprogram0.xml + patch0.xml),但我只是无法使它正常工作。我从QFIL收到以下错误:

[代码]
撒哈拉沙漠版:0
开始发送程序员
下载失败:System.Exception:无法使用Sahara协议下载Flash Programmer
QC.QMSLPhone.Phone.QPHONEMS_SaharaArmPrgDownload(String sFileName)
QC.SwDownloadDLL.SwDownload.QPHONEMSSaharaDownloadArmPrg(UInt64&version,String armPrgPath)
下载失败:Sahara失败Sahara失败
完成下载
[/代码]

最终,我意识到8936是cpu型号,而ZE552KL型号是8953。我已经在Internet上几乎所有地方搜索了prog_emmc_firehose_8953.mbn文件,但找不到。

我找到了一些有关如何使用emmcswdownload.exe制作自己的mbn文件的文档,但是它不起作用,因为我正在使用的partition_boot.xml文件的语法不正确:

[代码]
C:\ Program Files(x86)\ Qualcomm \ QPST \ bin> emmcswdownload.exe -f 8660_msimage.mbn
-x partition_boot.xml -s 1G -g 4M

C:\ Program Files(x86)\ Qualcomm \ QPST \ bin> -f = 8660_msimage.mbn
-x = partition_boot.xml
-s = 1073741824
-t =

-x:解析分区描述文件...
CExParsePartition
-x:解析分区描述文件时出错:元素类型“ r”上的文档错误
oot”和名称/值“不再支持<image>标签”
[/代码]

结论:我是新来的,我不知道自己在做什么 :)

两个问题:

1-在这种旧的“ Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008”模式下,可以在擦拭手机之前从手机恢复文件吗?如果可以的话,我想保存一些女儿生日那天的照片和电影。

2-我如何复活这个坏男孩?它处于保修期内,我还没有对其进行进一步处理,因此,如果无法引导它,我将把它替换掉,但我发现ZE552KL特定的信息在网络上并不常见...也许我们可以修复这个东西作为社区,以备将来参考!

Thanks for any help with this matter!

我找到了一些有关如何使用emmcswdownload.exe制作自己的mbn文件的文档,但是它不起作用,因为我正在使用的partition_boot.xml文件的语法不正确:

[代码]
C:\ Program Files(x86)\ Qualcomm \ QPST \ bin> emmcswdownload.exe -f 8660_msimage.mbn
-x partition_boot.xml -s 1G -g 4M

C:\ Program Files(x86)\ Qualcomm \ QPST \ bin> -f = 8660_msimage.mbn
-x = partition_boot.xml
-s = 1073741824
-t =
-f:开始映像构建...
-x:解析分区描述文件...
CExParsePartition
-x:解析分区描述文件时出错:元素类型“ r”上的文档错误
oot”和名称/值“不再支持<image>标签”
[/代码]

结论:我是新来的,我不知道自己在做什么 :)

两个问题:

1-在这种旧的“ Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008”模式下,可以在擦拭手机之前从手机恢复文件吗?如果可以的话,我想保存一些女儿生日那天的照片和电影。

2-我如何复活这个坏男孩?它处于保修期内,我还没有对其进行进一步处理,因此,如果无法引导它,我将把它替换掉,但我发现ZE552KL特定的信息在网络上并不常见...也许我们可以修复这个东西作为社区,以备将来参考!

感谢您对此事的任何帮助!
我有保存emmc 备份 如果需要 我可以发送给你 你可以通过9008修复你的手机。 我不确定修复后是否会清除你的手机数据。所以你自己决定。

我不保证可以恢复 ,复活你的设备。但是这个文件复活了我的设备。

    Cool, I haven't returned mine for a repair yet, still hoping I can fix it myself. Keep me posted on your progress, I'll take a look myself into this toolkit.

    Hey binarez, have you tried the Asus flash tool with the raw firmware? take a look at this and/or this.

    I tried to extract the raw firmware in the hopes of finding the partition and xml files but to no avail.

    Hi, if someone here knows how to use the Qualcomm tools or any tool to unbrick my phone, your input will be highly regarded!

    I bricked my ASUS ZE552KL... and I know how : it was full and I started a memory hungry app and it just froze. The app was probably caching some stuff locally. I hold the Power On button to reboot it and it doesn't boot at all (black screen, all LEDs are off, etc). This is known in some articles online as OLD “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” MODE (the worst kind AFAIK). When I connect the phone to my Win7 machine, I have a PORT that opens as “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008”. I do not get the Qualcomm disk drive.

    I found this guide (cannot post URL but dotandroid dot com/android-root-guides/unbrick-qualcomm-mobiles) that offered me some hope. I followed the instructions as best as I could. That means I uninstalled all the Qualcomm device on my system, I installed the proper drivers (QualcommDrv/Allx64, I have a 64 bit Windows installation) and the proper version of QFIL (QPST tools). I cannot remove the battery from this phone so I had to skip the "battery removal for 5 secs" step. I tried all kind of key combinations before/while/after plugging the USB cable.

    I got to the point where I try to flash the files from 8675_W00 but the MBN file provided in it (prog_emmc_firehose_8936.mbn + rawprogram0.xml + patch0.xml) but I just cannot get it to work. I get the following error from QFIL:

    Code:
    Sahara Version:0
    Start Sending Programmer
    Download Fail:System.Exception: Unable to download Flash Programmer using Sahara Protocol
       QC.QMSLPhone.Phone.QPHONEMS_SaharaArmPrgDownload(String sFileName)
       QC.SwDownloadDLL.SwDownload.QPHONEMSSaharaDownloadArmPrg(UInt64& version, String armPrgPath)
    Download Fail:Sahara FailSahara Fail
    Finish Download

    Eventually, I realized that 8936 was the cpu model number and that the ZE552KL model is 8953. I have searched pretty much everywhere on the internet for a prog_emmc_firehose_8953.mbn file but I can't find it.

    I found some documentation on how to make your own mbn file using emmcswdownload.exe but it doesn't work because the partition_boot.xml file I'm using doesn't have the right syntax:

    Code:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin>emmcswdownload.exe -f 8660_msimage.mbn
    -x partition_boot.xml -s 1G -g 4M
    
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin>-f = 8660_msimage.mbn
    -x = partition_boot.xml
    -s = 1073741824
    -t =
    -f : Beginning image build...
    -x : Parsing partition description file...
    CExParsePartition
    -x : error parsing partition description file: Document error on element type "r
    oot" and name/value "<image> tag no longer supported"

    Conclusion: I'm new to this and I have no idea what I'm doing :)

    Two questions:

    1- Can I recover files from the phone before wiping it while it is in this OLD "Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” MODE? I have some pictures and movies from my daughter's birthday that I would like to save, if possible.

    2- How can I resurrect this bad boy? It's under warranty and I didn't mess it further yet so I'll get it replaced if I can't get it to boot but I figured that ZE552KL-specific info was not commonly found on the web... maybe we can fix this thing as a community for future reference!

    Thanks for any help with this matter!

    Hey binarez. There are a couple of devices out there that uses our processor. (my device is bricked as well) one of which is Xiaomi Redmi note4 mido. That's the best option to work with cause Xiaomi utilities Qualcomm edl mode to reprogram their devices. So I'm hoping to use some files from the mido softWare to get my ze552kl repaired.

    Cool, I haven't returned mine for a repair yet, still hoping I can fix it myself. Keep me posted on your progress, I'll take a look myself into this toolkit.

    I tried to extract the raw firmware in the hopes of finding the partition and xml files but to no avail.

    i have checked the raw file! its all the raw partition images, i believe there are in correct order! i even tried the sd card boot repair with them but it didnt work.the OTA update zip and the raw file combined both have identical files to xiaomi edl firmware pack but files like xml an others are nowhere to be found. which partitions are needed to get our devices to boot into the bootloader?

    I believe you need sbl1 at the least, but possibly some others like rpm, tz, devcfg, and aboot.

    How did you open the .raw firmware? I renamed to zip but only got 800kb of the 4gig image viewable?

    use 7-zip exe, thats what i used to do the extract the raw file! if my memory serves me right, all the files that you have listed are in the raw file, the extracted files are in my hard drive at work, esle i would have sent screenshoot. is it possible for someone to edit the partition file(xml) of the xiaomi mido to match that of the asus ze552kl?
