what VID/PID do you have in Device manager?
Hi Kramar 111,
thank you for your fast reply. Here is what I found:
USB\VID_05C6&PID_9006&REV_0000&MI_00
USB\VID_05C6&PID_9006&MI_00

which I got under hardware ID`s

Hi Kramar 111,
I appilogize for my ignorance... still I do not get everything:

It's seems to be not bricked :)

download .bin from Amazon (for example update-fire-phone-35.4.6.3_user_463001620.bin for Unlocked GSM)

extract
images/emmc_appsboot.mbn
images/NON-HLOS.bin
images/rpm.mbn
images/sbl1.mbn
images/sdi.mbn
images/tz.mbn
boot.img
from .bin and flash throu EMMCRAW_1.4.0.0
I cannot open the .bin.
how can I extract those files then?

emmc_appsboot.mbn it's aboot
NON-HLOS.bin it's modem
sdi.mbn it's dbi
all others accordingly names
what do you mean with this?

First of all, instruction is not tested on the device, I am not responsible for anything :) :(
let's try with GNU/Linux because i see some posts about Windows + EMMCRAW get even harder brick

Only if your Fire Phone does not power on and detected in GNU/Linux with ID 05C6:9006 (QHSUSB_DLOAD 9006)
1. Download update-kindle-35.4.6.6_user_466001420.bin Stock Software (or search other version) to any folder (for example, /tmp/123). Version must be the same with installed on your phone before bricked.
2. Extract
images/emmc_appsboot.mbn
images/NON-HLOS.bin
images/rpm.mbn
images/sbl1.mbn
images/sdi.mbn
images/tz.mbn
boot.img
from .bin (.bin - it's archive)
3. Run terminal and execute
ls -l /dev/sd*
find which of sd* have 19 partitions and substitute sdc to sd"your letter" in dd commands
4. Unmount all sd"your letter" volumes (if mounted)
5. Back to terminal and execute as root
Code:
dd if=/tmp/123/boot.img of=/dev/sdc15
dd if=/tmp/123/emmc_appsboot.mbn of=/dev/sdc14
dd if=/tmp/123/sbl1.mbn of=/dev/sdc9
dd if=/tmp/123/tz.mbn of=/dev/sdc8
dd if=/tmp/123/rpm.mbn of=/dev/sdc7
dd if=/tmp/123/sdi.mbn of=/dev/sdc4
dd if=/tmp/123/NON-HLOS.bin of=/dev/sdc6
sync
sync
sync

6. If dd's & sync executed without errors, unplug USB cable from computer, power off and power on Fire Phone.

Many Thanks.
Before the brick there was CM11 Version on the phone. I bricked it while I was trying to put the kindle stocj software on it. So should I take the CM11 or the stock then?

Stock, sure
CM11 was installed thru Safestrap, "on top" of stock
Safestrap have special images for reverting to stock - http://forum.xda-developers.com/fire-phone/development/safestrap-v4-flashable-stock-image-t3150531
But now is too late to talk about it.
Okay, Kramar111,
Thanks for that.
There is just one thing that I need for now and I think it is a novice question:
How can I extract files from the stock .bin file that cannot be opened.
I need to see what is in there....
Do you get my question?
Thanks for your helpful support!

Thank you Kramar111.
You are right. I do not get how I can look inside its archive...
I would be happy about a further hint.
Thank you

Terminal

Hi Kramar111

My bricked fire phones got in my focus again. So I started to try fixing them again. I follow your plan.
The (windows) terminal does not understand the order
ls -l /dev/sd* like you mentioned here:

3. Run terminal and execute
ls -l /dev/sd*

Under Ubuntu it is not possible as well...
Or do you mean a certain terminal in the Raw Tool?

Cheers for further help!

Did u find a solution to this problem brother??

I had my old Fire Phone on ice as a back-up running SlimKat: just in case my OnePlus One went kaput, I'd be able to flip the SIM over to the Fire until I'd get a new phone up and running.

Then, I got a hair to play with FireOS again, so I used the TWRP to sideload 3.5.1 and rebooted, but then I've had the blank, black stare ever since.

When I connect the phone via USB, adb and fastboot do no recognize the phone (although they see the OPO just fine). I get 6 new drives and only one is readable with a folder called "image" that contains adsp.*, cmnlib.*, dxhdcp2.*, mba.*, modem.*, playread.*, tzskp.*, wcnss.*, and widevine.* files.

I lurked around xda and found references to QPST and loading that up found a phone labeled "Q/QCP-XXX" with "*Download*" under the ESN, Phone Number, and Banner tabs on COM3.

Did I fry my eMMC? Or is there some way of transferring a bootloader via QPST that I haven't found yet?

Many thanks!

    [I can't seem to link to the image directly since I haven't posted enough, so I added a few random spaces to the link.]

    Thankfully and graciously, Amazon is replacing mine and I'll have to send the brick back.

    It doesn't hurt to give them a try.
