  2. i have a problem with LG G3 Stylus D693N i was updating but it damage in 99% now i cant turn on the phone , is dead completely, i hope somebody could help me

    1. Sorry this time i have not any free solution, I think you can unbrick LG G3 Stylus D693N via ISP method, Use any jtag device that support ISP or direct eMMC, May be Easy-JTAG will have this facility.

    1. Hi thanks for being here, I have seen these pictures and i can see his model have MTK CPU inside, So we can easily unbrick MTK based phones. In most cases we don’t need to short pins we only using key combinations to connect phone on boot mode. If key combinations not work then by using boot cable. Please this post for detail

      You have not told about problem in your phone so have tried to answer as i understand.

      1. I have a brick in my phone for trying to install a recovery in 4.4.2.
        I can not enter download mode, only fastboot mode.
        Neither have I unlocked the bootloader.
        Can´t use lg flash tool.
        Ubunto Method, unless 🙁
        I don´t know what to do…
        Sorry for my English

  3. nothing worked…
    I tried the “shortpin” tutorial on the 4 and 5 from the microusb cable
    my pc did not recognized the phone, but I am not sure of making it right as I only put a piece of metal betweeen the 4 and 5 and then plugged the cable to the phone with that on it
    did you have a tutorial on how to make that cable from 0?

    1. This may be due to you have shorted test point before connecting with USB. Check also with other BoardDiag version. If still getting error then it should EMMC chip fault.

    1. If your phone have Qualcomm CPU you can read it with infinity cm2 QLM Module or any other supported device, Just make a backup from working phone and then write to bricked one. But may you will not have this professional device. So you can search unbrick method for lonovo or slimier phone then follow the instructions as i found this link will be best for you

  6. I think I’m in the right place, I need help I have a lg d851 but I can not change “LGE AndroidNet USB port” to “Qualcomm 9008” I do not know if I’m doing it right.

    1. Hi, first of all sorry for late reply, In your case you have AndroidNet USB interface so it’s mean your phone is not hard bricked. You may have fastboot interface. You can fix via fastboot. Google for more..

  7. board diag says “you can check PMIC trail after testing PMIC, what does that mean?

    Please follow video tutorial, and unckeck check pmic option.

      1. I have a g3 phone written on it d851 but the official rm i have d850 and the phone cover is written like this … d850 \ D851 …. I tried your style with the D851 but it did not work Do you try D850 What do you recommend

        1. Methods like this only work for those phones which have bricked by us using wrong firmware i or rooting. This type of phone can be unbrick using correct method and firmware. See model written on board and try using correct firmware.

    1. Ohh,if you have emmc test failed then it’s mean emmc (internal storage) not in working condition it should be faulty or disconnected from board due to board cracked etc,

  8. Hi dude, any idea if this tutorial will work with LG-K430AR (K10)? It was booting but got stuck in logo, I tried to fix the firmware with chimera tools but the program crashed and the phone got bricked…. Any solution to unbrick it? Thanks in advance for your time!

    1. Hi thanks for your message, It should be a hardware fault but if your phone bricked during flash then you must fix it first then may be you stuck on previous sate. I have not fixed this phone before so batter Google about it. If you have Medusa box or any other jtag device then check their listed models.

  9. Hey Sir I see Your Video And I like It Very Much.. BUT Problem is that I can’t Change LGE AndroidNet USB port” to “Qualcomm 9008”.. Now WHAT To Do CAN you Help me Out please

    Hi my friend, my g3 pass the lg logo and then shows the android logo charging and that’s it, no more… but it enters to download mode and it shows User B60 but doesn’t flash or anything…

    1. If you are unable to find your required test point for LG F460, You should try Google images if still no unable to find and can pay for it i can try for you. Because most of test point already posted in this post, i have not test point for required model. i need to spent more time to find new test points so it’s not possible for free.
