Question We need unbrick tool for Redmagic 6/6 pro

Search This thread
i've been waiting for my paperweight turn into a phone for a month now, i don't think it will be here any soon....
It’s like Cinderella turning into a pumpkin after midnight. Our devices went from being phones to paperweights overnight.

Someone get our fairy god mothers up in here to bipity bopity this crap back into a working state

Nubia Red Magic 6
Out of curiosity may I ask how did it get to this state? Also I was able to get myself out thru a combination of reflashing boot.img (i was on 4.12), unlocking and relocking bootloader, and factory resetting via recovery mode. Not in that order and each multiple times. Somehow it worked out. Possibly worth a try if you are just waiting anyways with not too much to lose?

I found that a locked bootloader is good at telling whether you didn't quite flash an img right. It kept telling me that things are corrupt and whatnot, and all of a sudden it booted.
 
So I'm pretty close to getting a working TWRP for this device. I have extracted a basic TWRP.img file and merged it with the boot image for the Red Magic 6. When I flashed it, the logo shows up but nothing happens.

When I have time this weekend, I'll mess around with it some more.

That way we can unbrick it with twrp and not have to worry about waiting for an unbrick tool.

Guys the unbrick tool is already in this forum: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/unbrick-tool-edl-flash-switch-from-cn-to-eu.4284797/

Note if you are rooted before going to EDL mode (9008) you should backup EFS via QFIL QCOM tool as a few people lost their IMEIs - I think it's in EFS Explorer the tool is free just Google it. Then do an EFS backup and save where you can't lose it. Here's a guide just ignore the Lenovo part, but you must go into diag mode Qualcomm 901D which is (try dial code *#7678# first it worked on the Red Magic 5 series, probably puts you in diag mode still) otherwise: adb shell; su; setprop sys.usb.config diag,adb before QFIL will see it: https://forums.easy-firmware.com/showthread.php/29143-How-To-Restore-Backup-QCN-EFS-on-Qualcomm-devices-(Giuide)

You can also back up the partition if you are rooted via adb shell. From memory, enable dev options (click build # under system until it shows up), patch your boot.img with Magisk Manager (should be in the ROM zip file you downloaded, copy to phone), flash back to the phone with fastboot (it will be in Downloads/magisk_patched_xyz.img "xyz" changes names just depends on Magisk) command is just after reboot to fastboot: fastboot flash boot magisk_patched_xyz.img; reboot and you should be rooted. Then from ADB do an ADB shell (it will ask to trust the device connected) adb shell (on PC), su (will ask for root access, grant it), $ dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/persist of=/sdcard/persist.img and copy that to your PC. That's your persist partition in case it gets messed up you should be able to: $dd if=/sdcard/persist.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/persist that assumes you copied persist.img back to your /sdcard/ in internal memory.

If I messed up a step feel free to correct it, this is all from memory no PC in front of me on vacation...
