On the day I get my Volla Phone, I flash SailFish OS via UBPort Installer, which is what Volla said was OK to do.
I needed to Unlock : fastboot flashing unlock
Flashed Image via UBPort Installer, reboot to fastboot and then - fastboot flashing lock ..... fastboot reboot
Brick, no response on any buttons for any amount of time held down.... what am I to do now?
I am super confused, upset and quite angry that this has happened.
Anyone have any ideas?
EDIT: Sorry, I haven't given any information on my OS or anything - I am quite distressed....
Fedora 34 using the latest 0.8.8 UBPorts installer appimage.
I have had many phones in the past since Windows CE and have been flashing since then, have never been here though.
In my WIN10 VM, I can see a MediaTek 65xx preloader, so maybe it is not all lost?
I cannot share the above with my VM, it crashes - the Preloader is coming on/off/on/off....
EDIT: In hindsight, this may not be a UBPorts Installer issue - Admins: kindly move to appropriate board
Seemingly a SOFT Brick as it is detectable via USB and then reboots so then not detectable...
Opened case with Support : We will see how deep the rabbit hole is...
EDIT: (a lot of edits, huh?!) I have requested to return the product definitively due to the fact that I just purchased it, flashed SFOS as in March Blog states is allowed, device is now defective. I should be within my rights as a European Consumer to do so.
