| | Bricked Bold - Please Help
Please Login to Remove!
Hi folks, any help would be appreciated!
History - I have a prerelease bold that had prerelease firmware on it. It worked fine but with minor issues related to that firmware. After wanting to upgrade it to a newer version I had deleted the firmware and this is where the fun began.
unconnected the bold won't start
once connected to usb - red light goes on black screen remains - red light goes off after 10 seconds and then a grey screen with a battery appears with the a thunderbold through it
What I have tried
I have tried running apploader with nojvm and with the oldest prerelease firmware I have (which is older then the original one, I tried the original one as well)
after connecting to bold and asking me what firmware/software I would like to install I click next where it loads the firmware the first step receives a check
it then tries to initialize the device takes about 2 minutes then reports errors in connecting to the device.
Any suggestions?? if it will help I can take pictures of each screen
