    1. My Phone is bricked – Please help!!!

      When power on – Black Screen – No Response – No Lenovo Logo etc – Dead 100% ! !

      Cannot access recovery either

      When connecting usb red light flashes once and that is it nothing after.

      Nothing detecting when connecting via USB on computer either.

      Advice any one?!

      1. Hi,
        Hard brick can only happen when hardware problem like power short, burning ic and etc else soft brick mean only software problem and to fix soft brick is to re flashing firmware to you device. As long your computer can detect your phone you still can flash firmware to your device, look at download section on usb vcom driver, try to install it first

    2. Hi Andy..

      Recently, I smartphone have problem. Then I flash my smartphone using your instruction on this link http://www.androidrookies.com/2014/06/a-guide-to-flashing-official-rom-lenovo.html#.Vh7spG4n7EZ
      Its working great but I cant understand china. So I flash again using your instruction in this page (http://www.androidrookies.com/2015/02/how-to-update-lenovo-s860-with.html#.Vh4mqG4n7EZ)
      However my mistake, after I click Firmware Upgrade, I forgot to tick DA DL All with Checksum and click cancel when flash running 5 %.
      Oh no, my smartphone became brick now. Nothing I can do on my smartphone. Cannot turn on, flash or anything. I search over internet but unlucky me, nothing work.
      Mr Andy, can you help me to solve this problem?
      Thank you
      Jamal

      1. hi,
        sorry to hear that, is big mistake interrupt flashing progress. should let the flashing process finish and then flashing again with DA DL All with checksum checked, it will be more safe.
        and i hope it not brick your board or partition.
        first check if device still recognize by your computer. and see what it recognize as.
        if still MTK preloader VCOM then you free to re flashing the new ROM on your device.
        maybe this movie give you something https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3TmXtOA0IA

    3. Hi Andy

      1. No i dont have video tutorial for this, and the scatter file is only one and it inside the target bin folder. Once you extract the sownloaded ROM you will found target bin folder and inside it you can find scatter file
