Welcome to this unbrick tutorial
NB: I state immediately that i'm not responsible for any damage that occurs on your phone. This process worked for my Nothing Phone on 1.1.3, but maybe not on yours.
I do not suggest following this tutorial if you are on 1.1.4 but since your phone is already out of usage, you can try on your own.
In the next lines we will see how to restore our device to its original factory conditions, after unlocking the Bootloader. Note that all your data will be lost.
You are missing some of the phone partitions? This might solve your issue.
MATERIAL REQUIRED :
Latest platform tools correctly installed Link
- Unlocked bootloader both classic and critical unlock Link
- Sh4ttered Tool (download the version that matches the version you are trying to restore when you bricked your phone ) Link
- Super partition listed in post #2 and corresponding to your device version and region
- PC with Microsoft Windows 7-8-8.1-10-11
- USB type C cable
- Drivers of Nothing Phone installed
STEP 1 : Prepare everything
Extract the super partition from the zip to the platform tools folder and rename it super.img. Boot your device into Fastboot mode through power + Vol -
Once into fastboot mode, launch a CMD window into your platform tool folder by typing cmd in the search bar of your platform tool folder.
Then, connect your phone to the computer and type the command :
If a line appears, your phone is correctly connected.
Type the command :
If it flashed correctly, you should see something like this :
C:\Users\Alex\Desktop\platform-tools>fastboot flash super super.img

Finished. Total time: 167.087s
Once that step is done, your phone has now working super partitions.
STEP 2 : Flash stock firmware
After flashing super.img, you have to flash all the left partitions. For that, with powershell, run the Download.ps1 made by Sh4ttered and downloaded earlier.
Download the correct region and version of the firmware.
Once the Firmware is downloaded, you should see a new fw.zip
Run the flash_all.bat script, it should flash all the partitions without issues.
If something went wrong, tell me in the comment section.
Then, your device should reboot.
STEP 3 : Check your slots
If your device is still not booting, simply change the slot you're on with the following commands :
You should reboot into fastbootd.
Then use :
Look for the line where it says current-slot and it will tell you if it's A slot or B slot
Once you know on wich slot you are, try booting on the other one by running this last command :
If you're on a slot, or :
If you're on b slot.
Reboot your phone after that, and you should boot normally.
If not, let me know your issues in the comments by posting your logs and explaining me where you had an error.
