    Tried rooting by flashing the australia rom onto china unicom phone, result: bricked. What am i supposed to do now? adb or jtag or is there any other method? holding the up or down buttons while powering up does not bring up anything, stays in grey screen...

    anyway, why is android not able to boot from SD?

    Install clockwork mod (intructions in this forum section) and reflash a different rom. Never ever ever try to install an update.app not made for your current version. BOOM.

    Because hopefully it's not dead, it's just not loading boot.img.

    Common Fix:
    Remove battery for 15 seconds
    Power & Volume down for 10 seconds (You may see it stuck on the OEM logo at this point)
    Connect to computer via USB
    Flash CWM (instructions in this forums section in many places)
    Remove USB
    Power off (I usually pull the battery again)
    Power & Volume up for 10 seconds (boots into CWM)
    Restore a back-up or flash a working rom
    Reboot phone again
    Working phone.

    Worst case:
    If you can get adb to connect to the phone you can flash CWM. Pull the battery and connect to computer via USB. Holding power and volume down for 10 seconds. Try to flash CWM.
