Unbrick Qualcomm mobiles with Step-by-step guide.

If you have bricked you mobile having Qualcomm chipset, refer to our ultimate guide on unbrick QualComm mobiles.

Ultimate guide to unbrick Qualcomm Mobiles

First of all, all the credit for this long and highly useful article goes to tirta.agung from Xda-forums

It is literally impossible for us to try this method on all the Android devices out there. We rely on the comments we receive from users. According to comments received from many users, this guide will not help LG G series mobiles. So please do not attempt to use it for unbricking you LG G series device.

The process is really big and technical, so please refer to each and every word of this tutorial without skipping anything. Else there are heavy chances you will mess with your device and make it permanently dead.

Here’s the ultimate guide if you have got your Qualcomm phone hard bricked. The guide will work for most of the Qualcomm chip-sets, but better double check before going through the process.

Disclaimer: This guide is for technical persons only, if you are not aware about what bricking and unbricking a device, please do not follow further from here. We will held no responsibility if your device is broken or damaged. Proceed at your own risk and responsibility

Analyzing the Problem

In Qualcomm NEW firmware (not the HLOS part, but NON-Hlos, SBL1, TZ, HYP, RPM, and Aboot), especially ARMv8-A, Qualcomm diminished the famous “Qualcomm HS-USB Diagnostics 9006”, and introduce two types of “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” (source: fybon article ). So, before we proceed with the guide, we should analyse the phone first, on which 9008 mode your phone is in. To do this, follow these steps below:

Make your PC ready for the big day:

  • Please turn off internet connections.
  • Remove your mobile from PC or Laptops.
  • Install the latest “.net Framework” for your Windows.
  • Uninstall all the driver related to mobile, as well as any Qualcomm driver if you have install any. Uninstall them through Device Manager FIRST, then program manager. Here I used a software called “REVOUninstaller” to remove completely the driver softwares and Device Remover to completely remove installed unnecessary device.

Then run “CMD” or “Windows Terminal” as administrator and type:

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON

Restart your PC or Laptops, and you should see this watermark at the bottom right of your desktop, just like the pic below”
attachmentDownload QualcommDrv.zip from here, extract to an empty folder, then open the folder according to your Windows type (x64 or x86) and double click dpinst64.exe (if you have 64-bit Windows) to install the Qualcomm driver

  • Now it is safe to connect your Qualcomm Mobile to PC or laptop (I connected it in USB2 port). BUT BEFORE YOU CONNECT YOUR Mobile, REMEMBER TO UNPLUG YOUR BATTERY FOR FIVE SECS, REPLUG IT, AND CONNECT YOUR Mobile WITHOUT PRESSING ANY OF ITS BUTTONS. Your phone should now being detected as “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” and the driver version 2.0.8.7 (please check it through Windows’ “Device Manager”)

Analyzing the Process:

If you were just messing with system image, boot image, system’s framework or other things that does not related to Qualcomm’s stuff (modem-NON-HLOS.bin, aboot-emmc_appsboot.mbn, sbl1, hyp, tz, rpm partition, for example installing sound patch, etc, you possibly will enter the new 9008 mode, which is a combination of the old “Qualcomm HS-USB Diagnostics 9006” and “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008”. When you first brick the phone into this mode, you would experience such symptoms below:

  1. The LED charging indicator near the phone speaker will light red.
  2. Your phone will vibrate endlessly, and this vibration will end only if you disconnect your phone from your PC or laptop and unplug the battery.

If you open Windows’ Device Manager, you’ll see “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” under PORTS (COM & LPT) or “QHUSB_BULK” under Other devices, and “Qualcomm MMC Storage USB Device” under Disk drives, similar to the pics below (NOTICE THAT RED BOX IN PIC):
attachmentOR

attachment2

However, if you messed with your Mobile’s Qualcomm’s partition playing with NON-HLOS.bin, emmc_appsboot.mbn, sbl1.mbn, hyp.mbn, tz.mbn, rpm.mbn, or by other mean messing the whole Qualcomm’s eMMC partition, such as by using this zip I made while your Mobile is in Fastboot, then you will most likely go into the OLD “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” mode. You will find symptoms similar to below:

  1. The phone charging indicator would not light if you connect your mobile with PC or Laptop.

Device Manager only listed “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” under PORTS (COM & LPT) or “QHUSB_BULK” under Other devices, but no “Qualcomm MMC Storage USB Device” under Disk drives, similar to pic below:

attachment3

So, now you need to analyse your Mobile, whether it is in the OLD ‘9008″ or NEW “9008” mode, as the procedure to revive your beloved mobile will be different.

Guide, if you are NEW “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” MODE

If you are that lucky person, who is stuck in the NEW “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” mode, to be honest, the steps to be taken are a lot easier. However, you need somebody having the same phone as yours to upload your device’s complete eMMC image for you. To get such image, you could ask your friend to do these steps (root the phone first):

  1. Format your external MicroSD card with “exfat” system file, and the size of this SD card should be morethan 16 GB , which is the size of the whole partition.
  2. Do a full factory reset, meaning wipe your cache, data, and internal storage using either CWM, TWRP, or PhillzTouch.
  3. Insert the SD card to your phone and connect your mobile with ADB, type:
adb shell 
su
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/storage/sdcard1/backup.img bs=512 count=30535646

The size of the “backup.img” is around 16 GB, However, if you compressed it, it would be around 2 GB.

Now, if you have the backup.img in your hand, you can do these steps:

  1. Download partition tools from the net, I recommend you to use “Minitool Partition Wizard”.
  2. Download “HDD Raw Copy Tool”, it is a free tool that can copy your “backup.img” to your Mobile’s eMMC sector per sector.
  3. Now connect your phone, remember to UNPLUG YOUR BATTERY FOR FIVE SECS, REPLUG IT, AND CONNECT YOUR Mobile WITHOUT PRESSING ANY OF ITS BUTTONS.
  4. FROM NOW ON DON’T YOU EVER DISCONNECT THE PHONE FROM YOUR PC OR LAPTOPS.
  5. Open “Minitool” and you will see that your phone has 29 partitions in total, similar to the pic below (this pic was taken from Windows’ “Disk Management Tool” just to describe Qualcomm’s partitions):attachment4
  6. Delete all 29 partitions and click apply (remember don’t remove your phone while “Minitool” is completing the process).
  7. If all process finished successfully, open “HDD Raw Copy Tool”, and you’ll see things similar to this:

Choose your “backup.img” and click “Continue >>>>>>”.
raw partPut a highlight on “Qualcomm MMC Storage USB Device” and click “Continue”

raw part 1Check every things and click “START”.

raw part 3However, if you can’t find a good fellow, who is willing to give you the “backup.img”, then I’m afraid you have to do it the hard way, which is forcing your beloved Mobile to go to the OLD “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” mode. You can do this using “Minitool“:

  1. Open “Minitool” again.
  2. Delete all 29 partitions.
  3. Then choose “Create Partition” on the whole “Qualcomm MMC Storage USB Device” (making it one big 16 GB partition) as “Primary Partition” with an “ext4” file system. By the way, DON’T GIVE THE PARTITION A NAME.
  4. Click APPLY.
  5. When “Minitool” completed all the process, disconnect your Mobile from PC or Laptop, UNPLUG YOUR BATTERY FOR FIVE SECS, RE-PLUG IT, AND CONNECT YOUR Mobile WITHOUT PRESSING ANY OF ITS BUTTONS.
  6. And I have to greet you, “Welcome, now you are in the OLD ‘Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008’ mode”.

Guide on how to recover “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008” MODE

Download “QPST 2.7 build 422 (QFIL)” from HERE and extract it to an empty folder. It has to be this version of “QPST”. Install QPST by double clicking setup.exe

  1. Download 8675_W00.zip attached with this post HERE, and extract it to an empty folder. You will get a folder called “8675_W00”, just open it.
  2. Download and Extract your Mobile stock ROM in the folder you made. ( Make Sure the ROM you download is flashable file and not a ZIP flash file)
  3. Now open QFIL from start menu
  4. Insert all the necessary file needed by “QFil”:

(1)The programmer will be prog_emmc_firehose_8936.mbn found inside the “8675_W00” folder;

(2)Use the rawprogram0.xml found inside the “8675_W00” folder;

(3)Use the patch0.xml found inside the “8675_W00” folder;

(4)Hit “Download” button.

QFILIf the process you did with “QFil” finished successfully, the phone will reboot by itself.

  • After the phone rebooted, it will suffer from an endless bootloop. Don’t do anything, just disconnect it from your PC, and straight away put your phone into bootloader by pressing “volume-up” button while connecting your phone again to your PC.
  • Go to “8675_W00” folder again, and run FlashAll(AfterQFil).bat by double clicking it.
  • Your Mobile will reboot normally to stock ROM.

There you are, your mobile will finally come back to life. Let us know if this process helped you by commenting or using our social media pages.

    • This is a generic guide for Qualcomm mobiles, and basically formats all partitions and reinstall factory image (Google for your device). You can give it a try because if it is already bricked then this process want damage it more. Let us know the progress and errors if any, we will try our best to help you out.

    • Dear sir.. all the partitions are read only.. what should i do? did try lots of methods shown on lots of webs yet still cant do anything to those partitions.

      “Open “Minitool” again.
      Delete all 29 partitions.
      Then choose “Create Partition” on the whole “Qualcomm MMC Storage USB Device” (making it one big 16 GB partition) as “Primary Partition” with an “ext4” file system. By the way, DON’T GIVE THE PARTITION A NAME.
      Click APPLY.
      When “Minitool” completed all the process, disconnect your Mobile from PC or Laptop, UNPLUG YOUR BATTERY FOR FIVE SECS, RE-PLUG IT, AND CONNECT YOUR Mobile WITHOUT PRESSING ANY OF ITS BUTTONS.
      And I have to greet you, “Welcome, now you are in the OLD ‘Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008’ mode”.”

  38. I read all your pair Article saving devices with Qualcoom and drivers QDLoader Qualcomm HS- USB 9008 and you talk LG spite of my being a Motorola MOTO G3 1544 that possesses the same settings.
    He’s dead, only recognizes the player to the computer in QDLoader Qualcomm HS- USB port 9008 3 .
    I tried to use your program in which recognizes my phone but without any effect .
    I downloaded the 8675_W00 folder as taught and I hope to see the cel work again .
    It did not work and gave FAILURE the end .

    I will best describe him my problem and maybe you can give me a light :

    I have a Moto XT 1544 brikado the following conditions after an unsuccessful update …

    He reniciou when, caught and had nothing.

    On the computer, appeared as Qcomm driver that easily this part solved the bringing of votes with perfect communication.

    But even connected as QUALCOOM HS-USB QDLOADER 9008 (COM 3) no program for cel recognizes as mobile. Only they see the door 3.

    What happens is that he lost everything, despite the computer identify.

    Does not accept the command to enter the boot (vol- + power), is black, nothing, zero … as a full brick.

    I found various forms of recovery for motorcycle G and G2 to G3 but not function.

    I tried some things like: blankflash and direct qboot for him to understand and be able to put the firmware but without success.

    Someone would help or solution?

    Grateful

    In short … locked bootloader and nothing works or it accepts.

    I know that it is a G3 model XT-1544 MOTO and was with Lollipop.
    In an attempt to root it restarted and got black screen, without turning, without accepting any command.
    All the time I decided was the driver for Windows as Qualcoom HS-USB QDLoader 9008 at 3.
    Oh yes Windows recognizes, but the phone nothing happens.
    He accepts no ADB command, blankflash etc …
    It seems to have lost the intsruções the cel.
    The closest I saw some light was here with you to because I knew ressucitarem MOTO G2 under the same conditions this.
    I downloaded to QPST but I confess that the instructions for use here are not very clear but the QPST identifies the device in porta.Mas the instructions of how to use are confusing and did not get to do anything.
    I downloaded the Androidbrick Qualcomm Snapdragon Rescue – unbrick that seemed to actually be the recovery of cel but besides also complicated instrauções the program asks for a password not found and only the request not to ask the password and read to the end.
    I read everything and did not understand what the program password for WinRAR.
    If puer give me a light, I will be grateful friend.

    And as it is based on Qualcomm 9008 would like to know and try this method if your could relive that my cel .
    And if so, how to access the password for your program. If I have to pay , donate something …
    Grateful friend and thanks for any help you can give me .

    Hugs,

  56. Hi Kunal Barchha,
    I have to fix an USB issue on my LeTv1PRO X800. Could you help me please?
    The issue is as follows : from the first switch-on after purchase everything was OK except the phone was not seen by PC. So I never could transfer any file or flashing a new Rom. After connecting the phone to a PC I hear Din Don meaning the PC recognize some usb device is connected but cannot identifaing…I go to device manager and I see the phone is not recognized. It says : unknown/not recognized device. I install Qualcomm drivers but nothing. I cannot do also QFIL application as it cannot recognize any port where the phone is connected.
    Probably the Bootloader is blocked by supplier but I don’t know how to fix it.
    The phone is totally well running, the PC connection only is impossible from the beginning.
    The phone is from Gearbest. It is new (20 days!).
    Do you have any idea how to fix?
    The battery is inside, not removable.

    Thank you.

    Luciano

    • Hi Luciano,
      here is your answer. also ignore if you already solved.
      At first go to setting/developer option/ use debug mode – click to confirm. Download adb with fastboot package on your pc. unzip it and Pressing the Shift key + Right click, then you see a notification info. Choose “Open command window here”. open the “cmd” and type this “adb kill-server” and there after “adb start-server”.
      Now you got a pop up when you connect with your pc. confirm the rsn key with tick & ok. your device manager prompt showing your device as normal.

My phone will initially be detected but when it is to be switched to Downloader mode, Qfil will report phone not detected. Need further help.

    Also I came across the old TWRP backups I made before the phone got bricked. Is the backup still useful? Can it be used?

    Waiting for your help. Many thanks.

  80. Dear Kunal, thanks for the posting on how to unbrick smartphones. I tried on my bricked samsung s5 sm-901f but it didn’t work :-(. In my case I also got the message: Download Fail:Sahara FailSahara Fail
    I saw your article is from Nov 2015, maybe you have some newer improvements/hints ?. I would like try them instead of throwing the phone to the bin …
    In my case, the phone was working perfectly and all of a sudden the screen got frozen and it was not possible to turn it off. I took then the battery off and it never started up again. Based on your article the symptons match with the second case (9008 mode OLD).
    If you had some hints I’d would give them a try just for the sake of experiencing and learning …
    Best regards…

    help pleas !

  86. HELLO, YOU SAID WE CAN ASKED FRIEND TO DO THIS. BUT I FOLLOW 2 STEP 3 STEP I DONT UNDERSTAND,
    CAN YOU EXPLAIN ME WHAT YOU MEAN BY CONNECT ADB? AND
    WHERE I AM SUPPOSE TO TYPE STEP 4 ? db shell su ….?

    Please need your help
    thank you for your hard work.

    could ask your friend to do these steps (root the phone first):
    1.Format your external MicroSD card with “exfat” system file, and the size of this SD card should be morethan 16 GB , which is the size of the whole partition.
    2.Do a full factory reset, meaning wipe your cache, data, and internal storage using either CWM, TWRP, or PhillzTouch.
    3.Insert the SD card to your phone and connect your mobile with ADB, type:
    adb shell
    su
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/storage/sdcard1/backup.img bs=512 count=30535646

    The size of the “backup.img” is around 16 GB, However, if you compressed it, it would be around 2 GB.

  87. This procedure works with the Moto G2 XT1068 ?
    Would like you to help me, because I join a group that everyone with hardbrick the device.
    I would be very grateful if you can help us

  95. So how about moto g 2014(xt 1063)?
    Xda have been breaking their brains for almost 2 years trying to resurrect it with no success.
    Some ppl are saying that we need prog_emmc_firehose_8226_ddr.mbn instead of 8936. Are they compatible or we still have to wait for a miracle leak from motorola? I hope you can help us out.

  96. Hi Kunal,

    For step2 in the latter case —
    “2. Download and Extract your Mobile stock ROM in the folder you made.”
    Where exactly should the stock rom be extracted so it can be flashed?
    In QFIL steps all files are from the 8675_W00 folder. From the description it seems the stock rom is in a different folder.
    Just want to make sure before I do it.
    Thanks.

  97. What folder should the phone’s stock rom be extracted? How does QFIL download the stock rom if all the files are from the 8675_W00 folder? Just want to make sure before I start. Thanks.
