My Motorola V535 stopped working properly recently so I attempted to reflash to fix the problem (text input froze the phone; it seemed like a software problem so I hoped to fix it). After reading up for a while, I tried flashing with a pack, but screwed it up, obviously didn't read enough. I used RSD Lite to flash an R374 file rather than and R376.
Phone is now dead, will not boot.
I can get it into something I suspect might be boot mode (white screen) only when it is plugged into the power, by pressing * and #. Off doesn't help.
The PC does not detect it, b ecause the minute I remove the power cable to put in the USB one; it dies.
I remember charging my battery before, so I would have thought it's not a battery problem, but I'll try that; once I can find someone with the same phone as me to lend me a battery. Does it sound like I'm on the right track here? Then I can plug it in, reflash it with a R376 file I've got hopefully.
Thanks for reading,
I was trying to get my my phone to stop saying contact service provider and accidently totally bricked it. So I reflashed with a few different flashes, and it would show the boot screen and it wouldn't go any farther. In the proscess of trying to fix the brick factor, I accidently flashed it with an R368 flash instead of an R364 or R365 and now it's stuck in flash mode. I have tried reflashing with various flashes mostly R365 and a few R364s. It says flash successful, but yet when I turn it back on it's still in flash mode with an R368 SW version.
Hi, I'm in need of a lot of HELP! I unlocked my black Cingular RaZr V3 yesterday and I have a custom font, custwakeup + custgoodbye, DRM set, etc.
But today I tried to install a DRM set onto my friends pink Cingular RaZr v3, it FAILED and now when the phone starts up, all it does is sit at the Cingular Welcome Screen...?
I see the splash screen and the wakeup screen, but it won't ... boot into the phone, I guess I could say.
I tried pressing "power" + "*" + "#" by itself, connected via USB... it won't go into the boot screen. If I plug the phone in USB before I start it, then turn it on, my PC will say it's connected... but when I try to flash it, it can't boot into flash mode...
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Thanks in advance!
[P.S. I also tried to find someone else with the same problem, but I can't... I looked through about 5 pages I think on this forum...]
I was trying to unlock my V3 razr with the downgrader_v2 and motorolla unlocker software. But i accidently clicked on p2kman while it was downgrading and I think this is what caused it to fail. Now the keypad only lights up but screen stays black. The phone is still detected when plugged into to computer, the downgrader just exits out now if I try that, but the unlocker says it found the fone and says Done after unlocking. I tried to flash it with a monster pack and Flashbackup as well as RSD lite but I get error messages and it fails..
Is there anything I can do to try to bring this back to life????? plz any info is appreciated
when i try to flash my phone with a monsterpack it says make sure PDS backup valid continue? and when I click continue it freezes. So I made a backup of the PDS and when i try to restore the PDS backup it just freezes when it's "Sending loader please wait"
Is there anything else I can try to fix this? Maybe use the PDS seem editor? because I still seem to have access to that!
If your phone doesn't turn on, or even powers on for half a second and then keeps going through a power cycle by itself, your phone has a corrupt flash.
This CAN be fixed though. You must take the phone and put it into bootloader mode. It varies on each phone how you do it, but holding * and # and then power is the most common way. If your phone wont even power on, then it may take some time to get it to turn on. Took me 3 days once. I did find that by plugging it into the USB port while attempting bootloader helped later on speed that process up.
Now your phone is on in flash interface. You should plug it in and your phone should be attached as a Neptune Flash Interface (or whatever type of phone yours is).
You will then need to use a moster flash to recover it. A monster flash is a flash that includes both a flash file and a flex. These are fairly common. I have no links but there are some on my fserv in the irc channel in my sig.
Make sure you find an unlocked one. I don't know all of the possible locked/unlocked ones, so that's up to you.
Some people have managed to flash their phone and flex it seperatly using the flash interface and the se....f9.shx flex, but I haven't had any luck with that.
Flash using MultiFlashFlex.exe included with PST, and your good to go.
Unless I missed something, I probably wont help you recover your phone. This DOES work, I've tested it several times with several phones using several flashes to mess them up.

Used fixing a brick guide can't remember where I got it I know the file is fixthebrick.zip Google it.
Ramloader with all the files recommended from Mr Bucket in the fixthebrick.zip.
Flashbackup(thank god I backed it up before I started modding)
RSD Lite 2.6
Had to erase it all and start from scratch bootloader and all.
If you ever get the damn thing back up back up everything in Ramloader.
Found original backup
had to reconnect the phone after starting Flash Backup to get it to see it.
It is finally back after about 6 hours of busting my chops!
All for a bad DRM flash!!! GGGRRR! good luck.

Not sure if this would be considered a possible fix, but..
My SLVR L7 appeared to be dead after I tried saving a SEEM from the handset to my PC. It wouldn't turn on at all, or enter into bootloader mode while pressing the *, #, and then the power button. Freaked out a little bit, then removed the battery and microSD card.. reinserted the battery, and the handset was then able to power on again.
Was able to get iTunes installed previously, but think I'll stop f'ing around with the phone until it's possible to back everything up first =)
