I'm trying to help a friend with a phone he bought off someone.. He told me it wouldn't power on.
note: I'm by no means an expert myself
But if I tried holding the volume up rocker and power and I get a screen with 7 lines of red text.
RST_STAT = 0x1
PMIC_IRQ1 = 0x3
PMIC_IRQ2 = 0x0
PMIC_IRQ3 = 0x0
PMIC_IRQ4 = 0x0
PMIC_STATUS1 = 0x80
PMIC_STATUS2 = 0x0
From this point the phone only responds by powering off by holding the power button.
However, I can get it into download mode by pulling the battery, holding the volume rocker down, plugging it into the computer, then reinserting the battery.
I tried to flash back to stock by using the files found in the following thread:
[TELUS ONLY] [GUIDE] Complete Guide to Flashing Custom ROMs On Your Telus Fascinate - xda-developers
s1_odin_20100512.pit in "PIT"
T959TLJL3-REV03-ALL-low-CL763100.tar.md5 in "PDA"
T959TLJL3_FROYO_Phone-CL763100.tar in "PHONE"
SGH-T959D-CSC-TLSJL3.tar.md5 in "CSC"
Unfortunately every time I try and run ODIN it fails at Kernel... My ODIN log, reads as follows:
<ID:0/007> Odin v.3 engine (ID:7)..
<ID:0/007> File analysis..
<ID:0/007> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/007> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/007> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
I tried one other version of ODIN, but with that, I couldnt even get it to recognize the phone.
Not sure what my next step should be in hopes to help unbrick this phone... any help in this regard would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
