So as written in this thread my phone died, first thought was the battery... But after a long time trying to open it up, I found out that the battery and the rest of the hardware appears to be completely fine...

Now when I disconnect and reconnect the battery, and than connect the phone to my PC it's recognized as: RELINK HS-USB QDLoader 9008

There is a lot of info about this on the internet, but that info is mostly device specific, or the article states that I need specific device service ROMs...

Some tutorials allow me to get into the partitions of the device manually, but how do I get any images/files (maybe from a working A86)?

Or does anyone know of any other solutions now that I can get into some kind of emergency mode?

BAM, 350 euro's for a new motherboard :S

They could've easily fixed it with a software trick, but no, they have to charge me 350 euro's...

Hello,

Could you recognise your phone number with fastboot?

Some hopes remain

hi,
I've got some questions: is the mainboard physically damaged? If it isn't, why they can't fix it with software? And, what is the reason of bricking our phone?

They can'even swap the mobo... I paid the 350 Euro's, today I got a call that they dn't have the mother board anymore... So I'll et it back unfixed (and I'll get my money back of course)...

So... I'm screwed...

Do you think it really will come in March?
But doesn't the S2 have a 9" tablet?

I haven't followed the trends for the couple past months...

Damn it... Just after I send my NPFI for repair I accidently stumbled across a better case for it, and I bought it... If the S2 is 5.5 that's a lot larger...

Do you think I should wait a few weeks? I'm currently using my old PF, but it's pretty annoying since I'm used to the much faster NPFI :S

And it's Android version is too low, so I can't use any smartwatches with it...

Tja, for me, some issues with the current phone.

  • 16GB, with KitKat it is not enough (not rooted).

  • Dead zone in the display. Holding the tab on a certain place on one corner turns the screen of. (pressing the on-off button get the screen back to life.

  • Battery, not what it used to be.


I'm just wondering if i need a new tab, or should i go for a total different phone (just do not want a Samsung... everyone has one). and use the current padfone just as a tablet. Everything syncs nowadays.
On the other hand i do not want to have 2 devices, keeping the battery charged etc.
Choices choices

It will surely depend on the look and money...

I'm looking for a used NPFI (there is one on the Dutch Marktplaats, but it's 16GB which is too low for me)... I don't care about damage since I can switch the motherboard in my own Padfone if it is too badly damaged...

I can always sell it for the same price and get an S2...

BTW, I got my unrepaired NPFI back yesterday...

I think today I got the same issue, but for me the screen just went dark (backlight on). Like the app was hanging, so I left it for 5 minutes and then decided to do a force shutdown. Now it does not power on anymore.

I have had this situation two times before, but then the app closed down and I decided to do a reboot after which Android was hanging in the boot. A reflash of the firmware was necessary.

Sparky, I sent you a PM.

That doesn't really sound like my issue... My NPFI is in the Qualcomm emergency state... There is nothing to refresh without Qualcomm tooling...

I found a 32GB NPFI on eBay and bought it for 300USD (just the phone, nothing else, so I paid way too much but I just need a proper phone). Luckily the phone was in the same good shape as my own, so I'm good again...

I still have the bricked NPFI of course, so any suggestions on repairing it would be still be awesome...

I see, well I will start trouble shooting it from the beginning. Maybe there is some trigger in the process. I did notice that the battery seems to wear out a little, but I use heavy so after more than 2 years it does not surprise me.

If nothing works I will spend my money on the ZenFone 2 (4GB) I guess I am better off with a new phone with warranty and newer specs.
