    Hello,

    I have two smartphones, one is completely working, and the other is hard bricked.

    It is about HTC Desire 820.

    so I wonder is it possible to extract ROM from working phone, and then extract required

    files, such as .mbn and .xml programmer files ?

    I have found this tutorial: https://www.droidsavvy.com/2021/03/unbrick-qualcomm-mobiles-with-step-by-step-guide.html

    but I dont have required files, such as .mbn and .xml programmer filesfor flashing phone.

    my phone is detected as Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008.

    Thank you

    your phone would need to be rooted to be able to read and write onto the os. no root=no access to those files.

    how is your phone hard bricked? what happened to it?

    Which phone needs to be rooted ?

    I have two HTC Desire 820.

    One is fully working, and the second one is hard bricked.

    I bricked the phone, because i flashed wrong ROM.

    Now this bricked phone only is detected as Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008

    and when i connect the phone to charger, the led light is flashing.

    I thought I'd take all the content out of the working phone, and then transfer everything to bricked one.

    but i dont know can I extract required files, such as .mbn and .xml programmer files ?

    mikedt 你好

    I'm sure you'd definitely need to root the working phone, in order to obtain the system files you need. Of course that's not without risk, and you might end up with two bricked devices.

    Good luck!

    can't you flash a RUU for your bricked phone? can you get into recovery mode? it's been a while since i worked on HTC phones.

    ....maybe @Hadron can chime in on this one.

    :(

    therefore there is a possibility of doing more harm than good ?

    so with making a backup from working phone, i can make a new brick :D


    i cant use RUU, because the bricked phone wont go into recovery mode.

    :(
