Solved it.
Test point right under the sim2 metal cover. It is labeled
Used a resistor leg to short it to metal sim holder (ground) - insert the cable - drivers were already preloaded.
Keep open control pannel - device manager and flash tool.
Download started.- keep the test point shorted during the time of upload (no battery)

DONE

I knew that my image was good enough ( some known flows) so I choose to flash all packages.
Otherwise is safer to load what was reccomended in this thread.

Thanks,

It Only Works Temporarily!

Hi guys,

A good lesson learned after rewriting PRELOADER and DSP_BL with another phone's.
The phone was dead, no led when connected to usb and of course no activity on flash tool as the usb port was not activating.
Basically as i understand the critical blocks are the first 5, PRELOADER and DSP_BL (that's why flash tool has them with red text) and also MBR, EBR1 and UBOOT.

Anyway after having the phone in this condition i was searching for unbricking methods and i found this good thread in the Russian site forum.china-iphone.ru/viewtopic.php?p=730752
I understood the principle although the translation was not good, i searched with the multimeter for points that with connected the usb cable will have a voltage near the battery voltage as was suggested at that post. Finaly i found the two points that are shown in the second picture (points 1 and 2).

Without battery, connected the usb cable to the pc and opened the device manager.
I turned the multimeter to the location that acts like jumper, using the multimeter cables was very handy for that.
I touched it some times, nothing was happening and decided to keep it alittle more, the list moved in device manager but nothing special.
So i decided to keep it more than 5 seconds, the device manager recognized Mediatek USB port, that was. The drivers were there installed from previous attempts. I also had installed manually as legacy devices some extra from the mediatek driver list.

I started flash tool, loaded the scatter file of the ROM i use for this phone and selected only the first 5 blocks and pressed download.
I connected the two points and kept them like that till flashing finished.
I placed the battery and pushed it to touch the pins (cause without the back frame don't fits ok) and the red led was working now.
Assembled it back, loaded again the flash tool but now with all the blocks selected and did the flashing now using the usual way with the battery.
That's it after flashing finished the phone booted ok and started the setup.

I had a complete backup that i did with the MTKdroidTools and got back the phone as it was exactly before flashing the wrong rom.

For anyone that has the phone in same bad condition and wants to try this method of course as usual i must say is done AT YOUR OWN RISK
If there is a possibility to have the phone replaced do it.

I have the Cubot A800 (MTK 6575) in which I tried this method but when I connect the two areas, it is detected by the computer but goes of after a few seconds. Is there anything specific that I need to do?

You do not have the right drivers.
Check site needrom.com look for your phone # and install all the drivers package.
Also there are different flash tools. I have one that flash my phone without battery
another one require to insert the battery a few seconds after cable is insert.

Answer for question above regarding flash without USB...I am not sure but there must
be JTAG tools. However if USB port is broken can be re-soldered or wires run to a USB cable
if board is totally destroyed.

Hi

Anyone know what type of battery fit in Tinji I9300 because original Samsung Galaxy S3 battery don`t fit.
Thanks

If you are still serching a battery for the Tinji:

I solved my battery problem :good:
On german e..y I found the original one for my Tinji (GT-I9300) for a good price. I am not shure about different Tinji GT-I9300 models, my phone has the simcardholder underneath of the battery and the battery = 2100 mA/h S/N:AA1C511NS/2-B.
It fits 100%, I am happy with this part.
It seems to be not possible for me to post some link, sorry.
So only a hint is possible: You have to serch on e..y . for ==> Akku Batterie Star s9300 i9300 4,7" 2100 mA/h S/N:AA1C511NS/2-B <==.
Good luck.
Regards
Manfred

thank you very much for your advice, I finally have got the phone to work again all through your explanation about if all else fails! well I connected to the dot on as shown and liked that to an earth connection which is the steel sim card holder and pressed sp flash to hear the driver connecting on and off, I just kept the loop on all the time while flashing and it worked. this phone would not light up nor the drivers would stay installed (a bricked phone) it is a tinji i9300 s3 quad core, I had tried multi roms {it is what bricked it} I would advise anyone to give this a try as reading a lot of people have gave up or no idea how to fix the phone thank you once again for your great advice

I am new to mobile phone flashing.
I own Tinji mhi9300_wh with H800 mainboard. I bricked it with some firmware. My USB does not respond.
After reading this thread I decided to disassemble the phone - only then I have learnt it is H800 mainboard.

Could you please explain me based on my photos where the points is? Under which cover? How to remove this cover? What is it going to be short with what?

I would appreciate your assistance.

Best regards,
CyberMars

Hi all

I also have a Tinji i9300, and I'm trying to find a way to install google play services on my phone.

My phone specs are these:
Android version: 4.1.1
Baseband version: MAUI.11AMD.W12.22.SP.V8.P1, 2013/01/04 12:53
Kernel version: 3.0.13 [email protected] #1 SMP PREEMP Tue Jan 22 20:22:27 EST 2013
Build number: ALPS.ICS2.MP.V1.5

I rooted the phone with Root by B1n4ry :)

I tried to install the recovery from N2K1, Taiwan101 and other recovery but I can't get the onscreen menu from CWM, which should allow me to install gapps.

I can boot in recovery mode, and connect with adb, adb devices shows my device and says that it is in recovery, so I guess that recovery is working.

I'm also tempted in installing Tinji_i9300_deodexed_by_knski_2 but I don't know how to.

Can anyone tell me how to install google play services ? or install a CWM recovery to install gapps from there ?

Thanks a lot in advance

I use Gunsmoke v.2.1 which you can find here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=42521066#post42521066

And it works since months very good! Except the camera app which I have replaced already.

Cheers




Acording to my build.props I have a H800 board, which is not compatible with Gunsmoke :(

I'd be happy to get my hands on a CWM recovery image from where I could install gapps, or some procedure on how to do it from recovery mode via adb.

OR, some instructions on how to flash Tinji_i9300_deodexed_by_knski_2

I have a white screen (back lit) - that means the phone does power on. Do I have to test point?

My Star Note N9770/MTK6577 (ICS) was bricked using SP_Flash_Tools v3. with a N9770 custom JB rom. Nothing came on and no keys worked and it was recognized as MTK usb port/com.
using USB_deview I uninstalled all MTK drivers and other USB not in use. I reinstalled the mtk VCOM USB Driver pointing to the version of my OS.
After that I downloaded the Factory Rom and Flashed using the Sp flash tools and with the battery in my phone it worked. It flashed the factory rom and my device was reborn.

Hi guys

me and my friend are having hard times since weeks to develop a custom rom for our tinji.

Ubuntu, cygwin, sp flash tools, xml editor, hex editors... we're spending nights working on it and studying a lot.

Pretty fun, actually :)

The very good new is that we found a suitable rom from another device which has an official Android 4.0.4.

And good support from developer ;)

Tried many roms as the Lenovo ones... it was a tough search since the start.

Countless bricks.

Just one advice: use preloader and other files from H640...b06.rar rom while flashing. Just change system.img into rom folder during your tests.

Well, anyways...

In the beginning the BT and wifi weren't working. Solved.

Absolutely no problems with wcdma, internet connection speed test with Italian provider Wind more than 400kb/sec.

No more noises during phone calls. Ever.

2,4gb internal memory (no more room problems installing apps in internal memory)

New rom will not have the problem to modify vold.fstab file because it will automatically recognize sdcard as external memory.

Gps properly working (final release will be set to it.pool.org, to set it to your country you will have to use fasterfix from market)

Camera focusing, the flash is just a shame.

At the moment we are working on the power menu so that we can have on our rom "reboot from recovery" option.

framework-res.apk is a pain in the ... to recompile -.-

And more...

The device is showing nice skills. We keep bricking 9 times a day but there is no problem in revive it.

There is a lot to do still, but prepare an IMEI backup with mobileuncle tools and learn the basics to use sp flash tools because

soon we will upload a stable release.

We are working for you, don't throw away your tinji already.

Peace.

What happened to the ROM:confused:

    My experience with Tinji i9300

    Hello guys,

    First i want to thank you all, i got many ideas and solutions from this thread.
    My phone was bought as HD|C i9300+ but came as Tinji i9300 which finally was for good as i found this thread.

    I rooted the phone using Taiwan recovery and mkroot script that were mentioned earlier in this thread.

    Thanks for the wifi solution ideas, finally i did the aluminum tape mod and the results are fantastic, at location that i didn't had any signal i now have three lines. I tested also the wire solution but the signal was getting very low when i had the phone in hand.

    For the gps the only solution that worked very good for me was the wire, but is not a handy solution and the gps is not so important for me, so i don't care.

    Initially i was disappointed cause the phone was almost unusable as phone, either very low volume or interference noise while in call.
    I tested some ROMs (Taiwan/Stock) but my voice problems were not ending.
    Finally i found a link at a German forum at chinamobiles.org/showthread.php?31647-Star-GT-i9300-MT6577/page13 see post 249
    This solved my voice problems, also there are no Chinese apps.
    Flashed the same way as Taiwan ROM, then flashed recovery and then rooted it with the mkroot batch script.
    One thing to mention for the root process to start is to install the Android Composite device drivers in windows if the phone is not recognized by the system, i used the android sdk google usb driver.
    Another is that the HOME key was not working after flashing this ROM but the solution is provided at the same thread posts 272 till 296.
    I don't speak German but Google is our friend, not perfect translation to English but i was able to understand, a big thanks.

    The Bluetooth worked for file transferring but not with sound. I found the solution in this thread forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1899592 (Thank you), is the "test fix for Bluetooth problem".
    I downloaded the signed_BJMOD_fix_BT_test2.zip and installed it with CWM recovery, the Bluetooth sound after reboot was perfect.

    Anyway, this was my experience and i decided to share it as may also help other people.
    This is my first post so i avoided the http prefix at the links.

    Thank you all.
