Recovering my Lumia from bricked / emergency state

2 days ago, My Lumia 625 started to hang and keep making problems, and I finally decided to reset it through the WPRT. So I proceed to WPRT and connecting my L625 to PC and install the software as usual.But suddenly , WPRT shows an error that “The Operation could not be finished” and my L625 turns black and can’t restart and even no sign of the phone alive ( Light Exposure, red screen , etc).

So i check again with WPRT and it could not detect my L625 , so i decided to go to “My Phone Was not detected” button and choose my Device Manufacturer, Lumia

After that , once it detected my L625, it brings me to the Software Version checking…  Refer image below

Ok now i know that my Device is still alive and in UEFI mode or QHUSB_DLOAD (the name of the device at the moment) . Then i proceed by clicking Install Software.

It will take a moment to download the Emergency Packages from Microsoft Servers and soon it started to flash my L625 with the emergency package to recover / return to the Red Screen mode.

At first , i have tried to install the emergency package for about 10 times but it always ended up with error message ” The operation failed” “Could not found device”

Screenshot (686)

That night, I try again and it succeed!. My Phone has been flashed with emergency package and return into normal UEFI mode ( The Red Screen with large NOKIA ) .

Then I proceed with software Installation, and again as expected, it failed again and ask me to reboot the device.So i try it and keep rebooting my device for around 3 times. You know what? Miracle happens…. I tried again while watching the Log Files in Temp Directory, and it started to install the software smoothly without the previous error.Screenshot (687)bScreenshot (691)

Ok Let me Summarised it :

  1. Disconnect your phone from your PC
  2. Click on My Phone was not detected button
  3. Reconnect your phone to your PC
  4. If you were prompted to choose your Phone Manufacturer choose either Lumia, if you are using Lumia Devices or HTC if you are using HTC One.
  5. Wait for your computer to detect your phone and follow the screen instructions. If the phone still not connected try reboot it by pressing the combination of Power Key + Volume Down Key 
  6. Once you have been brought to Software Versions checking ( refer Screenshot 2 ) Press on Install Software and it will begin downloading emergency packages and Software Packages and install it.
  7. You’re done

So far, in my case, i have not used any manual steps like install the Software via CMD Prompt using the suitable Hex for the phone etc…  I am grateful that my Lumia 625 back alive!

How to use Windows Phone Recovery Tool?

Its been a long time since i last update this site on December 4, 2014 . So today, I would like to guide on how to use Windows Phone Recovery Tool (WPRT) . Maybe you have been familiar with the Lumia Software Recovery Tool ( LSRT), for your information the WPRT is another synonym software or handy tools by Microsoft that is specially created for Windows Phone 8 users specifically for Lumia’s and HTC One users.

What happened to the old LSRT?

Don;t worry, the LSRT still can be used. It is used for Recovering Nokia’s Phone Software/Firmware.

You may refer here on how to use the LSRT.

Which tool should I use?

Use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool for the HTC One and all Lumia phones running Windows Phone 8 or newer. For all other Nokia branded phones use the Lumia Software Recovery Tool. To see which Windows Phone operating system (OS) version is currently installed on your phone, go toSettings > about.

Taken from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/mobile/support/faq/?action=singleTopic&topic=FA142987

So Let’s get started!

So , First, let’s download the Windows Phone Recovery Tool from Microsoft Mobile Website.

Screenshot (716)

 

Next you have to install it first

After you have successfully installed it, connect your phone and launch it

You’ll get this screen

Screenshot (718)

 

Now , click on your phone as listed in it. As mine it was the Nokia Lumia 625

Then you’ll see this screenScreenshot (719)

 

In this phase the WPRT will check either your phone has the same version of Software with the server or not..If not it will download the latest software and install to your phone. In my case, I already have the latest Software which is Windows Phone 8.1 Update or Lumia Denim. So, for who did not have the latest software just proceed by clicking the Install Software button, while for those who already up to date and wanted to reinstall your phone software click on the Reinstall Software.

This will bring you to the next step which is Checking for the compatibility of Downloaded Files ( The OS/ Firmware images ) for those who already downloaded it.For those who doesn’t download it yet , you may have to wait for WPRT to download your phone OS / Firmware images to be downloaded before you can proceed to next step.

For the next step,

WPRT will start installing the Phone Software, and if you noticed it has rebooted your Lumia or HTC Smartphones into UEFI mode or known as Red Screen mode for Lumia users ( Red Screen with large NOKIA logo).

The installation process will begin….

Please make sure that your phone battery level is full and you USB cable is untouchable or undisturbed in order to prevent the software from being failed to install.

If the software is failed to install, your phone will be bricked or cannot be use and it will activate or put itself into emergency mode/ emergency state which is in black screen.You may need to run emergency flashing. I will explain on this later.

After the installation finished, your phone will be rebooted and you’ll have to set it up back according to your preferences.

That’s all.Thank you for reading!

But first Let;s get started with our Nokia C3 running on S40…

Before you started to Flash your phone with LSRT , you’ll need to backup your phones before proceeding with it..because in the next step, LSRT will completely removed all items or format your phone.

Ok First of all :

Backup your phone ( in this tuts i’m using Nokia C3 ) using Nokia Suite, you can get it here : http://www.microsoft.com/en-my/mobile/support/product/nokia-suite/ 

Screenshot (103)

5th :

After the download done, LSRT will start to install the downloaded software into your phone.At this stage , do not touch or do anything with your phone. Just follow the on screen message.

Screenshot (107) Screenshot (108)

 

Finally :

After the installation completed , LSRT will attempt to restart your phone in around 2 minutes.If your phone isn’t restarting and in my case it showing Test Mode , you are safely to remove the battery and restart your phone and you’re no longer need to connect it back since the installation has done..

How to re-upgrade Windows 8.1 after reset your pc back to Windows 8

Since long time i didn’t post anything here, now i would like to share something that may be useful and ease your day.

Re- upgrade Windows 8.1

Maybe before this you reset / refresh your PC or even restore to Factory Default/Settings due to some malfunction or error that keeps happen on your PC.. Then you wanted to re-Upgrade to Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store , but suddenly your actions were stopped by a message saying that you need to update you PC to the latest Update Definitions..

As on my experience, just in this month, i have installed all updates and keeps getting the :

Failure  configuring Windows Update

      Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer

This might been more frustrating since you are trying to install all of it and suddenly it come and again, and again..and the most frustrating is when your PC is stuck in the boot loop / in the error message for more than Hours.. As for me i tried troubleshoot it by entering safe mode and everything but it only a temporary since i can’t find what updates actually failed to be configured.

Screenshot (2)

 

 

So let’s back to the point , i go to Google and search for Windows 8.1 Windows Update Definition and finally i found it. (you can get it here : https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2871389 )

Screenshot (60)

Ok , grab the versions the matches with your Operating System bit , like mine was x64 for 64-bit .(TIPS : 32 bit also known as x86)

Screenshot (61)

Next , install the downloaded Windows Update package.May take a while.

Screenshot (8)

Once it is done, restart you PC to make your PC configure it.

Then, go to Windows Store and click on Windows 8.1 Upgrade..

Voila, now you can re-upgrade back to your previous Windows 8.1 .

How to build your own Web Browser using Chromium

First of all you need this things :

  1. Prerequisite software:
    • Windows 7 or later.
      • A 64 bit OS is highly recommended as building on 32 bit OS is constantly becoming harder, is a lot slower and is not actively maintained.
      • At least 60 GB of free space in an NTFS volume. Tip: having the chromium source in a SSD drive greatly speeds build times.
    • Visual Studio 2010 Professional or Standard.
    • Windows 8 SDK.
    • June 2010 DirectX SDK.
    • (Optional) Cygwin
  2. Install Visual Studio 2010
    1. Make sure “X64 Compilers and Tools” are installed.
    2. Install VS2010 SP1.

  3. Install the Windows 8 SDK.

    Note: If you install the SDK in a path different than C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.0 you need to set the following following environment variable:

    GYP_DEFINES=windows_sdk_path=”path to sdk”

  4. Install the June 2010 DirectX SDK
    Note: If your install fails with the “Error Code: S1023” you may need to uninstall “Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable”. See this tip from stackoverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4102259/directx-sdk-june-2010-installation-problems-error-code-s1023

Next you’ll need to patch Windows 8 SDK

    1. Parts of Chromium build using the winrt headers included with the Windows 8 SDK. All the headers we use, including the WRL, can be compiled with Visual C++ 2010 with the exception of one file, asyncinfo.h. This file uses a strongly typed enum which the VS2010 compiler doesn’t understand. To workaround this for the time being, a small patch needs to be applied to the Windows 8 SDK to build with the winrt headers in VS2010:

      Patch for Includewinrtasyncinfo.h

      Index: asyncinfo.h
      ===================================================================
      — asyncinfo.h
      +++ asyncinfo.h
      @@ -63,7 +63,7 @@
       #pragma once
       #ifdef __cplusplus
       namespace ABI { namespace Windows { namespace Foundation {
      -enum class AsyncStatus {
      +enum /*class*/ AsyncStatus {
         Started = 0,
         Completed, 
         Canceled, 
      This patch should be applied to the file “Includewinrtasyncinfo.h” located in your Windows 8 SDK directory. If this patch is not applied, the parts of Chromium that use the Winrt headers will not compile.
      Note: By default the Windows 8 SDK will install to C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.0. This directory will require admin privileges to write to. Easiest way to do apply this patch is tostart an administrative command prompt, cd to C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.0Includewinrt, run notepad.exe asyncinfo.h and comment out or delete the word “class” on line 66.
      Note: For Googlers, this patch has already been applied to your SDK, everything should Just Work.
  1. (Optional) Install cygwin

Next Build Chromium.

First of all you need to download the depot_tools from here . or the installer ( the installer is not from The Chromium Authors but I creatd it for you to easily extract it without have to waiting for a long time

After you have download it extract it to C: . Next you will need to :

  1. Check out the source code using a direct svn or git checkout. Do not use a tarball since it is not compatible with Windows’ svn client.
  2. Set up the component build (or else creating chrome_dll.pdb may fail laterl) and then regenerate the build files by running “gclient runhooks –force” in a cygwin/cmd window.
  3. Install API keys.
  4. Open the chrome/chrome.sln solution file in Visual Studio and build the solution. This can take from 10 minutes to 2 hours. More likely 1 hour.
  5. If you just want the Chromium browser, and none of the tests, you can speed up your build by right-clicking the chrome project in the solution explorer and selecting Build. You may want to make sure this project is the Startup project (which will display as bold) by right-clicking it and selecting Set as Startup Project. This will make Chromium (as opposed to some random test) build and run when you press F5.
