Hey everyone,

after spending about 5 hours trying everything I could think of and what I found in all kinds of forums, I'll try here before the phone is gonna be burried.

Got a "dead" P10 from a friend - booted straight to an error page with the headline "Your device has failed verification and may not work properly." My guess is that it was supposed to be updated, didn't have enough memory and then crashed.

Here's what I tried:
  • Factory reset - aborts at about 25%.
  • Download of a new firmware version via WLAN - aborts
  • Upload via SD-Card (dload) - firmware update failed
  • The phone is not recognized on the PC - so wouldn't know how to flash it from there.
I can still access it via fastboot, but I actually don't now how that could help me 😅

Can anyone think of anything else that could be done?
