• BLU (Finally) Issues Software Fix for Bricked Phones



    If you're the unlucky owner of a bricked BLU Life One X2, help is finally on the way.

    For those unfamiliar with the story, this affordable dual SIM Android smartphone was crippled by a November 28th software update that applied itself on devices with an unknown password. Making matters worse was the radio silence from BLU. The good news is that now, almost a week later, a software fix has been made available.

    And how exactly would one apply such a fix to a device they're locked out of? I was wondering that myself... In a dispatch from their official Twitter account BLU is asking affected users to email [email protected] so that they can be walked through the procedure of fixing their phones.

    If anyone reading this goes through that procedure feel free to share your experiences here.

      Too late for me. I already did the factory reset. Not a word about compensation for the rest of us. Mistakes happen, I get it, but the was this whole thing was handled was so poor. I'm done with BLU to the point where I'm selling my 8 month old Life One X and getting an Honor 7x.
