    Hey guys, I think I bricked my phone. So I was trying a new WiFi app, and it made my WiFi stop working, so I went to the GNM recovery to do a factory reset. There, being the noob biscut I am, wiped EVERYTHING. sdcard, cache, system, all of them. Then i restarted my phone. It goes to the G'Zone lighting up, and does nothing. I have tried wating for device on adb, but nothing.
    Am I totally screwed?:( I now want the download mode like on the samsung devices...:(

    When i go to device manager, it shows that there is a Casio Virtual USB Serial port COM5! Can I use some application to transfer the operating system to the phone that way? Please help me...
  3. you might be able to reboot into recovery from adb, but not likely
  4. I've never used odin, but that might help you, maybe?

    I cant reboot into adb, no os...and therefore tried odin and hiemdall, no use. i tried sending files via the serial connection and no luck. Going to verizon tommowow along with getting a larger sd card to be able to hold nandroid backups. *sigh*

    the com port is the modem. the android side would be an android adb device.

    if your device detected as Casio C771 Bootloader Interface , maybe you can do send you System .img with :
    update.zip should be your ROM/system backup zip name --> rename to update.zip

    Battery out, usb to computer, battery in, adb wait-for-device reboot recovery?

    it does not, just the serial port and generic "usb composite device" however, i gathered parts from mine and my friends de-activated commando to make one that works, and it does. just finished re-building it. I call him, "Frankendroid"

    As I was curios about this, I attempted the same thing to see the results, although, I took my sdcard out first to preserve my backups. Here is what I did:
    Reboot recovery - via terminal emulator on commando.
    It booted to GNM Recovery.
    Factory wipe, wipe data, wipe cache, wipe system, wipe dalvik.
    Since there were no recoveries to use, since the sd card was out, I pulled the battery and then rebooted.
    It boots the main bootloader, then attempts to load the os, but at gzone screen shows loading and nothing else. (this is concurrent with willsters issues).
    There is no acess to adb or fastboot (I believe fastboot is disabled in the kernel and/or can be released by bypass boot in the program screen, ##program from the dialpad of the phone screen, however mine was not set to bypass.
    I can access the modem side through QPST, and am looking at a way to flash that way. Any help would be appreciated. The phone is not my daily, so being without it is no heartbreaker. Lets see if we can really open her up.

    Good luck. I'm following this thread to see how it goes.

    And adb wait-for-device reboot recovery doesn't work?
    Recovery should still be there. That should still be there. Wiping system doesn't wipe recovery.
    As I suggested previously, maybe put the wait for device line in, plug it into computer and pop the battery in?

    adb wont work as it does not load the drivers. fastboot does not work as it does not load the drivers.

    The only access is through the modem side, i.e. QPST, RevSkills.
    I can sucessfully get to download mode, however, the bootloader drivers do not load. Currently there is no way to go from download mode to recovery. It would be nice if there were some AT commands that could do that.
