*Mine doesn't have to testpoint ( my computer auto recognize it as HS-USB QDLoader 9008), if you don't then search google for testpoint)
First make it to identify as edl mode on your computer (HS-USB QDLoader 9008)
next open the image file of the rom(extract from tgz file )
replace it with this file :" prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf " ( search google for this file)
important: only" prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf " not prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_lite.elf
then flash it by miflash.
if you have error then read this:
( first my computer did identify but mi flash didn't, it just show error: " cannot receive hello packet " so i try to open the back of the phone, unplug the battery connector, next plug it back and now it work. Then just flash it :) )

Hi,
My phone is hard brick too. I have some questiong about you solution:
1) which version of miFlash that you are using?
2) Do you remove the "mi" folder in your miFlash folder?
3) which "prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf" that you are using (there are many file on google)?
4) while you unplug the battery connector, is EDL mode still connected?
5) while you plug back the batterry connector, is EDL mode still connected?
Sorry for asking these questions, but I tried so many guide like this. And my phone still hard bricked

hi efazul,

where did you get this tool? is it really safe?

I have been downloaded these files and extract it, and immediately there are 2 files got deleted due to a virus by my eset smart security.

and here are the reports:

For anyone that is still looking for a solution to their bricked Note 7, the tool efazul_fayad linked works like a charm! You do have to disable your AV, I used Malwarebytes and turned off all protections except web and ransomware and it did the job!

hello guys it took me a long time to find this totirial with all the files ready to revert the damaged phone i installed all the applications that are in the video description and it works 100% the phone came with the global rom but the original phone is chinese so i had to install the rom of Chinese origin. I put the folders on drive C of the pc. I hope that you will be able to reverse the situation in this way.https://youtu.be/scP-PF5NLl0
