Bricked Keon with 2.1
« on: November 08, 2014, 12:07:52 PM »
Hi everybody,

I bricked my keon with the 2.1 firefox version.

-Firefox OS System recovery doesn't work => reboot fails and sticks at the geeksphone logo and wipe date and wipe cache doesn't work. What can I do now? I have no microsd card reader.
Restoring from internal sd doesn't work as well

I can't load anything with adb sideload, because it can't find the device.

When the geeksphone startdisplay is shown, adb can finde my keon, when I then send the command adb reboot recovery it can't find my phone....

Ok, what did I do:

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot erase userdate
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
fastboot flash system system.img

and after flashing system:
writing 'system'....
Failed (remote:unknown chunk type)
finished.

What can I do?

Did you manage to find a fix for the device that was bricked?

My Keon was also bricked with a failed update...my brother flashed it with the Flame v123 base image.  Do you know if it is still possible to recover the device?

@Devon : Wow, you should not give your phone to your browser !!
Yes it is possible to recover your device, but I guess it won't be possible to recover your data unfortunately (flashing the base image, what your brother did, overwrite your data).

You should download the image you want from http://downloads.geeksphone.com/ and try to flash it back.

For @ulix :
Have you downloaded a fresh image from geeksphone website ?

@autra:  The device does not even switch on.  How do I proceed in this case?  :-\
