11.11.2011    Unlock/IMEI/TA repair –  SonyEricsson x8, x10, x10 Mini, x10 mini pro (e15, e10,u20 etc)

Resurrecting SonyEricsson phones is easy. Phone is auto powered on with USB Data Cable connected to the PC while battery is inserted.

With current resurrector you can choose Unlock or Resurrection operation to perform. During resurrection, you can select which areas to be repaired. Please note, in some cases phone reports failure during firmware update: in this case you may need to select option to erase Modem SW zone during resurrection.

Example :

During Unlock operation full backup of relevant zones is made, thus you have no risk killing your phone permanently – you have always an option to restore your phone to its original condition with the backup file. Backup files are created in JTAG Manager root directory, in the folder ‘BackupFiles’.

Example :

RIFF JTAG – Samsung Nexus S (i9023) Unbrick Boot repair supported

04.05.2011  Samsung Nexus S (i9023) Unbrick Boot repair supported

Samsung I9023 is based on the S5PCxxx Processor (ARM core is Cortex-A8).
Note, one simple way to connect over JTAG – connect USB cable to PC and insert battery. In this case phone is automatically powered on. But note, in very rare cases it is possible that you will have to hold Power On key during initial connection.
Current resurrector has two different versions of primary boot loaders (PBL) embedded. This depends on hardware version of your phone which boot to use, thus in case of failure (cannot enter download mode after resurrection) of first loader try selecting another.
In case after resurrection (after you have tried with both boot versions) the download mode is not initiated (LCD remains blank) do repeat resurrection with ‘Clone Gremlin zone’ option checked.

To resurrect Samsung I9023:

  • Solder JTAG cable to Samsung I9023 JTAG pads;
  • Connect microUSB cable to phone and PC;
  • Insert battery;
  • Make sure Samsung I9023 is selected in the list of models;
  • Make sure a fixed TCK frequency is selected;
  • Click Resurrect button;
  • Wait till software signals a successful operation completion;

Now phone is in bootable condition, that is, even if it does not start up normally, you can flash it using original Samsung downloader software to restore it to the working state.

To enter download mode:

  • Disconnect PC cable;
  • Insert battery;
  • Hold both ‘Volume Down’ and ‘Home’ keys and press Power-On.
