    The SP Flash tool seems to have bricked the phone – cant do anything.

    1. Veer Amrit Singh says

      Can you boot up your device now?

      1. Gan Pathy says

        No. (1) Tried to get back with cwm recovery. (2) Searched the web for Vibe S1 stock ROM… Couldn’t get one.
        Didn’t get anywhere in that approach.

        Then tried the adb way, since the phone didn’t come up, ‘adb devices’ didn’t list the phone. Any hard reset didn’t work either… However, although the display didn’t come up, I did see the phone vibrate a couple of times…

        It’s bricked as of now. Will wait a wider adoption of S1, hopefully there would be a solution.
