    Okay. I managed to get back into TWRP recovery. Unfortunately, the phone is still not recognized on the computer, so I can't push a ROM over.


    I went to reboot into bootloader, but I got a warning from TWRP that there is no OS.

    So aggravating. I can't mount seem to mount the drive at all.

    Many thanks, this saved my phone after an unsuccessful flash attempt. IF you could link the qualcomm drivers to this thread it would be complete, i had to find he qualcomm drivers on another thread.

    So I bricked after trying to update CM11 to 44s, and I didnt have access to a computer for 2 days. So I just got to my computer, and my device isnt showing up in the device manager at all when I plug it in. I left it on charger while it was bricked so battery shouldnt be the issue. The buttons dont seem to be doing anything. For a while it would vibrate if i held down VolDown and Power, but now its not even doing that. I feel like this tutorial should definitely work for me. But it should at least SHOW UP or something in device manager... but its not. any ideas?

    I've read that the battery will not charge if kernel is really messed up or something... So now I'm thinking the battery is dead and thats why I cant get it to plug into my computer. I'm wondering my options. I see the battery isnt too hard to get to and unplug. If I unplug the battery, and then plug the device into computer USB, will it receive power that way?

    If people didn't tinker and root, guess what?
    You wouldn't have the amazing device you're enjoying right now.
    Innovation requires boldness and risk-taking.
    Often foolish? Without a doubt...but also necessary if one is to reach higher and go further.
    No risk. No reward.
