    go to tmobile, say you charged it last night, went to go turn it on and now it doesn't turn on. do it at the store, the guy will try a different battery, when that doesn't work he'll replace the phone for you.
    Please don't you have another solution? I have the same problem but the phone is older then 1 year so no warranty...

    When you use this boot combination (at least on my V525 previously flashed to 55R) THE PHONE MAY VISUALLY APPEAR TO STILL BE DEAD (NO SOUND AND NO LIGHTED SCREEN OR NO KEYPAD FLASHING) EVEN WHEN THE BOOT IS ACTUALLY SUCCEEDED.

    You will only be able to detect that the phone has booted by connecting the data cable to your PC and Vxxx, and then running a program such as "MultiFlashFlex" or "MSS" -- these programs should indicate that they have connected to the Neptune flash bootloader for various Vxxx models.

    Also, if you have previously installed the 55R flash, you will apparently have to reinstall the same version and no other release (most likely someone tried to flash over an installed 55R flash with another release and that is what killed the phone in the first place). You most likely (as I did) have to use the MSS application to perform a full flash and flex after the application erases the existing bad flash.
    This is exactly what I have run into with my V635, it appears to start up the boot loader but nothing on the screen, etc.

    The problem is the phone seems to die and reboot after a few seconds because PST can never successfully force another flash to it.

    Looks like I've just created a $400 paper weight.

    OK, got my phone working again, I'll leave a note for other V635 owners who kill their phone and might look to this sticky for guidance.

    After flashing the V635 it seems that some combination of putting it on the AC adapter and removing/re-inserting the T-flash wakes the phone up.

    I put my phone on AC, re-inserted the T-flash and used the "*" "#" and pressing/releasing power button to load the boot loader and voila the phone came back up.

    V3 dead?

    Hi,

    My V3 battery just died and I'm on the road so I didn't get my AC charger with me, when I plugged in the usb cable to the phone the keypad just blinks every few seconds but the power doesn't come on.


    Removing the battery for a few minutes made no difference, as soon as I insert the battery in again, the phone starts power-cycling again. Holding down "*" and "#" doesn't bring the bootloader up or keep the power switched on (the keypad just keeps blinking every few seconds with the time between power-cycles increasing)

    I didn't flash/flex or do anything other than uploading ringtones to the phone, so this is EXTREMELY weird.

    Any ideas? Could it just be because the battery is out of juice or is the flash corrupt and should I just return the phone and get a replacement?

    my V80 freezes all the time, and I can rarely get it to turn on. Most of the time the keys will just light up, stay lit for about 20seconds then turn off.

    I've been thinking of flashing it to a newer version, is this right?
    Can i just use a flash, or do i have to flash and flex it?

    Backing up is an option?

    Hello there.
    I have bought a V180 today. It's unlocked, came from Spain.
    Reading this thread it came to my mind something: how can I make a backup of my flash?

    I mean, if this (a dead phone) happens so often, why not make a backup of the firmware of the phone?

    Is there a software that can READ the flash?

    Thanks,
    Freddy

    sorry guys, but im another n00b whos buggered their phone.. can someone help.

    I got a V500.. flexed it to a V600.. everything was great. But then I got greedy, - I saw this: http://xlr8.us/hofo/map.txt - it mentioned a VideoCamera. So I edited my mma_dcp file to change what I had on my smartkey from 'ACalculator' to 'AVideoCamera'. - And of course, this didn't work.
    When booting up, the keys will light up and it will display the bootscreen, (but not animated like before) it will also vibrate (I had it set to vibrate before the problem), but and thats it. It just sits there with the bootup image.

    I struggled to get it into bootloader mode, * and # then power didnt seem to work, however it did once, dunno how though. So I tried to reflash it with TRIPLETS_G_0B.09.4FR_reflash.shx because that was the only flash I had laying around. but that didnt seem to help. I then read that I need a monsterpack, so I went and downloaded TRIPLETS_G_0B.09.1DR_A1_LP0039_JPG_0B_TRIPLET_04_0 5R_SE6403AXXB30F3_1FF.shx but now I cannot get MultiFlashFlex to detect the phone at all.

    How do i know if the phone is actually in bootloader mode? when pressing * and # then power, I get no lights, nothing on screen etc.
    Sometimes windows tells me a usb device has melfunctioned, but then that error message disappears.

    please, is there anyway I can save my phone?

    Try reading the thread. There's nothing you can do that hasn't been discussed in here.
