I formated the EMMC with MBR boot mode. The bad is that i unplugged the phone right after.

That nice and delicious. ;)
If you un-plug the usb cable, you can still re-plug, and your OS ill connect it and you can try to repair the partitions, if you remove the battery, thats the real end of the story.
Next thing you can do is emmc reflash with external adapter, thats a lot of work.
I used mbr when i was experiencing with Win 98, i was 7 years old...mbr is old stuff, nobody would use it in the future, the tech is changing every time.

Hi,

i'm currently stuck in falsh mode and can neither restore to normal boot mode nor switch to mass-storage mode. Activating the mass storage mode was my primary goal.
Situation:
  • OS Windows 10
  • Windows Device Recovery Tool 3.14.7501 is installed
  • WPInternals 2.4
  • Lumia 950XL
Unlock bootloader worked fine. These files were downloaded:
  • RM1085_1078.0053.10586.13169.12547.035242_retail_prod_signed.ffu
  • MPRG8994_fh.ede
  • RM1085_fh.edp

Switching to Mass Storage mode failed with. I wasn't yet able to find a hint to fix this. I attached the complete log (WPINternals.log), the log part of "boot to normal mode" (BootToNormalMode.txt) and the result of
WPinternals.exe /FindFlashingProfileExperimental (FindFlashingProfileExperimental..txt)

Perhaps some has an idea, how I can go back to normal mode. Thanks in advance.
Edit 1:
There was an error when first switching to mass storage mode:
Error: Phone is in Mass Storage mode, but the driver on PC failed to start
Error: Phone switched to Mass Storage mode, but the driver on the PC did not start correctly
Afterwards the phone was stuck in reboots showing a blue screen with :(
From the log
Found device on interface: 9e3bd5f7-9690-4fcc-8810-3e2650cd6ecc
Device path: \\?\USB#VID_045E&PID_0A02#5&326c0cbc&0&6#{9e3bd5f7-9690-4fcc-8810-3e2650cd6ecc}
Connected device: Lumia
Mode: Bootloader
Lumia disconnected

Edit 2:
I've read somewhere, that I should use an USB 2.0 port. So I'm up for a new approach.
I switched to another PC, installed WDRT, downloaded WP Internals. Started WP Internals, clicked "Switch to mass storage mode. "No FUF profile file found". Copied C:\ProgramData\WPInternals\Repository from the other PC, started WP Internals. Same error again. Used the downloaded section for downloading all files again. Profile file was found, entering Mass-storage mode and I was created with the blue scree ;(.
Clicked on "interrupt boot mode", which worked fortunatly and my second try to enter mass storage mode was greeted by a new device "MainOs" found Windows 10 notification. Currently running a backup. :)
I just hope, that I can switch to normal mode later on.

Hi! @Heathcliff74 and users of WPI.



Recently bricked my Lumia 920 while trying to unlock bootloader for cable disconnect failure. The cable disconnected while moving my device to place it on table. Now, it just connect in Emergency mode and PC recognise it like QHUSB_DLOAD and Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM3).



I really have the correct drivers installed since many months ago, and remember that in the past I solved a similar issue, but can't remember how it was.



Is projected to add in a near future, in WPI, any option that would recognise the Emergency Download mode, like Flash, Label and Normal modes? It could be great to make easier to work with this kind of issues with the same tool.



If not, is possible to access in this moment to the device and fix this? Tried NDRT and WPRT, but the first has servers now off and the second tool works now in this mode with Lumias that are just MICROSOFT Lumia devices, but no with NOKIA Lumia devices. This, get users of older Nokia Lumias in a kind of limb without official solutions.



Does anyone know anything that could help me?

Thanks in advance.

Ah! I forgot to really thanks to @Heathcliff74 for develop this magical tool. Without it, it could be nearly impossible to modify, restore, unbrick, ... definitively, to work inside with our Lumia Phones.



Would like to have the possibility to donate to you for your work, but I'm without job many time ago and get now my accounts to zero. But be sure that, the follower month after the day that I find a job, you will see an amount from DaniDeVega into your donations account. What possibilities will let me. :p

It DOES work on them, if it was bricked in an un-repairable way, that wasn't the fault of the SBL3
I unlocked another 521 fine without the sbl3.. I add the sbl3 in it bricks its strange I'm not saying it doesn't work ..I'm wondering why it bricked with the correct files .I'm not worry about the brick its such a cheap phone

    Hi all! Windows Phone Internals 2.4 is ready to download. It beats the modern SecureBoot implementation. And furthermore, it brings custom ROM's, Mass Storage Mode, Root access and many more hacks to all Windows Phone 8 and Windows 10 Mobile-based Lumia-models. There is also a new Download-section in the tool, where you can download everything you need for your phone.

    Short demo here:
    https://wpinternals.net/index.php/128-introwpi22

    Version 2.3 is released:
    https://www.wpinternals.net/index.php/129-wpi23released

    Version 2.4 is released (changelog in the link):

    What We do now? Microsoft kidnapped Heathcliff74

    Hahaha! No, I'm still alive and kicking. I released that intro video 2 weeks ago, because at that time i was sure i was able to release the tool within a few days. I still haven't released the tool yet, so I owe a little explanation.

    Two weeks ago I was just wrapping up some final pieces of code. But there was a problem with the implementation of the bootloader unlock. It had to do with updatability. When the bootloader was unlocked, the phone could not be updated anymore, which makes sense. But after relocking the phone, the phone still couldn't be updated anymore. That means, that when the phone was unlocked once, it could never be updated anymore, unless you would flash a stock ROM and start over. I realized the impact of this problem later on. Because many Lumia models only have WP 8.1 based stock ROM's and the update-process from WP 8.1 to the current W10M build is painfully long. Doing experiments this way would be agonizing. And this implementation would never be useful for people who want to use this on a phone which they still want to update regularly.

    So I was looking for a solution for this problem. It took me a while to get it right. I needed a new hack and many attempts to get it implemented correctly. But I have fixed it now. I still need to finalize some stuff, but it is almost ready. If I wouldn't have been able to fix this shortly, I would have released the tool without this, but that would really have been a big disappointment for me. Because you only make a first impression once.

    If I knew all this in advance, I would have waited to release that intro-video. I mean, I worked on this for two years already. And I've worked on this in silence all that time. Because I knew that when I would publish about my progress, I would also get questions about ETA's all the time. And I simply can't answer them. I need to focus on my work. I didn't release that video to tease a lot of people and then sneak out again on purpose. I'm just as anxious as others to release this tool. And now that I have this problem fixed, I guess I can release the tool soon. But you got to realize that it is important for me to test everything properly. It is important to get it right, or else phones get bricked. So, it is ready when it is ready. Sorry to test your patience. Hang in there just a bit longer.

    Heathcliff

    PS. I will try to answer all other questions when I release the tool. No time now.

    Hey Heathcliff74, Please is there a fix to turn off reset protection after what you software has caused to many Lumia phones? It be nice if you could build a program that does a cross scan between each device IMEI and upon Microsoft Reset protection status site that states on there site that is off which will force it off on a phone that should have been off? Or at least give us something were we can disable Reset Protection. The bypass solution is a pain even though that works. Though not idea to do for any owner of a Lumia especially for us Lumia 950/XL owners.

    Wow, wow, wow! Hold it right there! The tool is full of warnings. And when you started the tool for the first time, you agreed to the Disclaimer. This text is a part of the Disclaimer-text of the Windows Phone Internals tool:

    This software is a "proof of concept" tool which uses dangerous and largely untested techniques on Windows Phones ("Target Devices"). By using this tool the target device may start showing unstable behavior and crashes. There is significant and real potential that irreversible permanent damage will occur on some devices. As such this tool must only be used against target devices which it is acceptable for such damage to occur (for example retired devices used only for test purposes). This tool should not be used against target devices, which are intended as your primary means of telecommunications, because in some circumstances you may not be able to place calls (including calls for emergency services), or you may experience increased data charges. Use of this tool may void the warranty of any chosen target device.

    It is not my software who caused problems. You took the risk and used the software on your phone. So YOU caused the problem and YOU are responsible for the problem!

    That said, I investigated the issue. Reset Protection is only present on US phones. So I was not aware of how it could be triggered, because I am not from the US. To prevent the issue, I made changes to WPinternals 2.4. It will try to backup the Reset Protection Response Data and restore it when the bootloader is restored. So there should be no new cases of this problem when using version 2.4.

    There are a couple of ways to get around Reset Protection. Some people already succeeded by using a certain ROM version in combination with Interop Tools but that is indeed very cumbersome. I contact users all the time to help with various problems. Not because I feel obliged. Just because I want to help.

    Will this work on any w10m build or we will have to downgrade to an specific version(i'm at 15254.12 in both 635 and 550)??

    WPI only works on supported OS versions. Version 15254.1 and 15254.12 are both supported.

    So HTC one m8 for windows is suporrted?

    HTC One M8, HP Elite X3 and Alcatel Idol 4S are not supported. It would take me a lot of time to research. I have to see which hacks are compatible. And where I would need to find new hacks. I don't think I will have time to do this, unfortunately.

    Will the new WP Internals work with my Lumia 730 now?
    It will support lumia 635??
    If this is the case, then for sure the 1520...I hope...
    Any chance this could work on the Lumia 435?

    WPI 2.2 still supports all old Lumia's. It is now also successfully tested on Lumia 1520, 435, 550, 630, 640, 650, 830, 930, 950 and 950 XL. So I think it is fair to say that it works on all Lumia's.

    Heathcliff74,
    First of all, thanks for the hard work you've put into this. Quick question: If you unlock the bootloader and gain root access, can you remove root access and re-lock the bootloader? (I'm assuming you can, but I'd like to verify). I like the fact W10M is a secure OS. I would only want to unlock the bootloader and gain root access on a temporary basis.

    Yes, this is possible. However, there are still some issues with updates after having relocked the phone. I'm working hard on a fix for that.

    With this tool, will it be theoretically possible to install Windows 10 on ARM on i.e 950xl, when it's released?

    In theory.. yes. But you would need to merge the drivers into the OS. Not an easy thing to do.

    Heathcliff74.
