So I am trying to activate the testpoint on the P10, as it is mentioned in several tutorials, e.g. here:

https://forum.xda-developers.com/p10/how-to/unbrick-p10-vtr-l09-vtr-l29-unbrick-t3916694

However, I could not get the device to register as an USB serial device and it is unclear to me how to achieve this - how exactly do I shorten the testpoint? I could not find any Video or similar information. Do I need to shorten it all the time, or just for a few seconds? Does the device have to be turned on or turned off? Should I turn it on while shortening the testpoint?

its simple, u must unplug batery, usb cable, take any metal think (a wire exemple) and connect test point pin to metal shield on mother board, while u hold short, plug usb cable and in device menager u will see usb serv (if no driver installed) or com 1.0 (if driver installed) then u take back short, plug batery and u have what u want
