    Hello

    So ive bricked the mid8024 really good. I have a vast knowladge of linux, android, even u-boot.... Ive read this forum and others up and down tried everything. The pin short method does nothing. When pressing the power button lights stay lit untill released or ~10 secoonds.

    How did i brick it? well i was trying to flash the rom ... said it updated recovery, bootloader, and failed at zimage (kernel).

    Is there any info on the serial pin out>?

    Open to suggestions
    Will

    I suggest getting pissed and try to destroy it!

    Well, not really...

    Sounds like either a hardware or software issue. If it is a software issue, a different ROM should fix it. If it is a hardware issue, not sure how to fix that. Could be a loose video cable, bad board inside or many other things. It will probably need to be returned and replaced or repaired to fix it.

    Also, welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to stop by.

    found out it was the wrong bootloader. always use the stock bootloader!
