Try to flash again.
If that messege apears again just press the power button of the phone for a few secs without disconnecting from the PC.
The download should begin. If not change the Mode to Normal and press the power button for a few secs.
Dont disconnect the phone from the PC, cause that messege apears because the GNQC is unable to confirm the state of the phone. By pressing the power button you are refreshing the connecting and the GNQC should detect the state of the phone.
Also you can try this using another USB port on your PC.

Feed back me :)
:crying: :(
Not Working
Actually my device is recognized as an unknown device
and i have allotted it to gionee driver.
is it matters ???

here is the guide to unbrick your phone if you got it hard bricked (no fast boot mode)

Disclaimer: do this on your own risk. I am not responsible if you..blah blah blah well what worse you can do you have already bricked your phone so pull your pants together and try this

USE only XP 32 bit (win 7 32 bit may work) nothing else works...
this method is to revive the device via accessing the qcom soc in bare board mode so that you can upgrade the firmware on device


1) download the flash tools given in the forum

2) download drivers and image of firmware (16gb or 32 gb) depending on your phone version (1.8 gb rar)

3) install everything

4) plug your phone via usb cable

if device manager shows

"qulacom HS-USB qloader 9008" under com port your phone is hardbricked and ready to go

if it shows more than 1 device under com port (gionee NEMA /GIONEE digonostics)your device is soft bricked and needs to follow steps for soft bricked device do not follow this guide any further

else if nothing happens hold power button for a long time (so as to make sure your phone is switched off) and try plugging in your device


5) open GNQC_download.exe and select path to bp-image folder in frimware image

6) AP image path is automatically selected (parent folder of bp-image folder)

7) select name as WBW 8901 or GBW 8900A (depending upon english or chinese version of flash tool)

8) select mode as emergence mode (bp + ap)

9)while qloader 9008 device is showing in mini window click download

10) after successful download phone will reboot in storage mode

11) if antivirus prompts for permission allow it

12) let it continue to download the files onto your device

after completion you can click tools and select which img files to download (let it be default)
click ok to save and now you can upgrade the firmware...


FAQ

Q) gnqc download doesn't works gives error "application failed to start"
A) install VC++ 2005 redistributeble SP1 ATL security upgrade

Q) receive incorrect parameter error.
A) you are using Chinese flash tool so make sure your copy of windows supports Chinese change local settings in control panel

Usb hid device

How can you tell if your device is fully discharged? I have had my phone off for more than a day. When I plug it into the computer the LED light comes on for a couple seconds and then goes off again. (I can't understand that spanish video) I have all the correct drivers installed. I don't think i'm ever going to fix my phone now :( Been trying to find help for a few days now.

Thank you for the links! I am downloading both now.
And to make sure, I flash 5831 (4.2) and then flash 8180 (KitKat)?
Last thing, do I use windows xp or windows 7?
Again, thank you for your quick reply :p
It is stuck on showing as USB HID DEVICE...

First step flash emergency mode GNQC 1.6.9 -> 4.2 rom
Second step flash GNQC 2.0 -> 8180 rom
If showing usb hid device -> the battery absolute 0%.
Connect the phone the pc, and waiting ... hopefully start the phone notification led blinking red. If blinking, the phone charging, waiting some minute, and off the blinking, the device manager recognize the qualcomm hs-usb qdloader.

I use windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

I plug phone into computer, and it installs as USB input device. >> So I wait 30 minutes (phone still plugged into computer) and it still says USB Input device :(
I don't know what else to try now. I wish it just worked like everyone else :confused:
I appreciate all of your help!
EDIT: Maybe I should charge my phone with charger?

I did same thing as mentioned on page and my cell stuck at 3% when upgrading Os, than i follow upper method, but i have done some changes due to 2 times i failed this method. if you done complete the procedure till step no 5 than wait 10 minutes, cell will automatically start, when start at first all portioned show, approximate 8 to 9 drives you will find on my computer, in all drive among you can access 2 drive one usb and one os drive where all files installed. At that time windows system also offer to format drive due to mobile all drives contain linux os. but dont format any drive, just wait another 5 minutes. mobile automatically reboot and all thing normal, after cell start go to system update gionee offer upgrade jelly bean to kitkat and done.

i hope people who struggle with brick phone may be they will get their cell on normal mode
sorry for bad english
