Hey. My uncle has this 2 year-old Galaxy S Plus, which has been giving him a couple of problems. First, the phone's mic stopped working (which he got fixed somewhere), then the phone got... bricked? It doesn't turn on, anyway. The battery's fine, the guy at the place he took it told him it's a motherboard problem and will cost him Rs. 6000/- ($100) at the Samsung service center.
So i'm new to this phone and moto phones altogether. I had rooted, put 2.7twrp on, and then flashed a couple roms tonight after getting the phone earlier today. I just went into recovery and thought since I don't have much space on the internal sd I would erase the stock rom and now the phone wont boot even though i flashed liquid smooth.
First of all, lets get something straight. Most people use the term "bricked" improperly. A bricked phone means one thing: your phone won't turn on in any way, shape or form, and there's nothing you can do to fix it. It is, for all intents and purposes, as useful as a brick. A phone stuck in a boot loop is not bricked, nor is a phone that boots straight into recovery mode.
I bricked a guy I work with's phone. He asked me to root it and I have rooted a few other items (Droid Eris, Droid X, and Kindle Fire). I found the correct files, was following the instructions fully, and now it is bricked.
Hello~ I just wanted to ask whether my phone has a chance to be fixed or not. My bro just installed a chainfire 3d app on it and the next thing I know, my phone was bricked and stucked on the android logo.
My phone is rooted but I dont have clockwork mod, but I can still access the recovery mode.
Ok I'm just curious to how many people have bricked their evo v.
I didn't brick mine I'm just curious. ;) I think if you pulled the battery from the phone while it was updating the radios (in the bootloader) it would get bricked. Other than that this phone doesn't have a high chance of getting bricked :D. So.. anyone bricked it ? Hard brick? Soft brick? :)
