    just because it can be recovered doesnt mean its not a hard brick.

    Dude, I read the documentation you provided.. I read the XDA posts.. I believe you that you can recover an "almost" dead phone.. but QHUSB requires a cable connection.. a signal.. any phone that can receive a signal is not bricked... it is just not booting, but if it turns on, it's not bricked.. a signal won't be possible if a phone won't turn on.

    you cant turn the phone on. you leave the phone plugged in. it will automatically put it self in this mode.

    I totally understood the process.. I know how to do it now, but I won't gamble just to try it... the only thing I disagree with is assuming that it is a hard brick.. if a phone can still turn on, it's not hard bricked, a lot of things are still possible even without bootloader, as long as it turns on..

    its fine i still think people are confused what a hard brick is. not all hard bricks are unrecoverable. i think now the phones got more advanced. there are more Safety measures to recover. qualcomms implementation is living proof

    anyways... with all the terminologies set aside, I encourage you to do a "how to" in the proper forum.. I believe your process is doable.. and will be very useful to community.

    well they could follow the XDA forums as well. me and a few others in there talked about it. and someone wrote a nice tutorial . me him and a few others were the ones to recover from this so far

    I seriously think this thread is sad. Ok, people, we know all of you guys are top dog phone experts. I am just thankful that you shared your experience so, God forbid, I find myself in a similar situation that there is someone out there that knows what to do and has gone through it. I appreciate when people share their experiences with the OPO like this. Thank you kind sir.

    I call it an idiot that was messing with things he shouldn't have been messing with. Your quite thick and are not going to listen to anyone (that's pretty obvious considering you jacked your phone up that bad 5 times). You cannot recover a bricked phone, or it wasn't bricked. Its a pretty simple concept bud.

    Don't get me wrong.. I totally applaud the guy for sharing this.. I am not a noob in electronics, but knowing this is like breaking new grounds for me... I save the documentation and bookmarked the thread in XDA as well... bottom line, it's just a matter of disagreements in terminologies.
