greatest fears of every Android user is the fear of “bricking my device”. It’s  no longer news, the rates at which Android
phones are been bricked is beyond imagination. From the info I’ve gathered so

will bare me witness that some bricked android device are been fixed while some

like to summon  you to draw your learning
chair closer, let’s see how we can  unbrick it.
I’ll quickly
share with you two interesting ways you can unbrick your device, even though
you are been told by your device Engr that there is no more hope for the

How Can I Un-brick
My Bricked Android Phone?
First method
1. Get a phone of the same type that is not bricked
2. Boot the good phone into recovery mode (hold volume up + power button while
the phone is off)
3. Go to Backup and restore
4. Select Backup then yes to confirm
5. After Backup is complete, copy the backup file / folder from the SD card of
the good phone to the SD card of the bricked phone (maintain the file path)
6. Boot the bricked phone into recovery mode
7. Go to backup and restore
8. Select Restore
9. Select the backup you just copied and click yes to confirm
10. Your Android  phone should come back to life

If  perhaps your Android phone proves stubborn,
then try the next method

How Can I Unbrick It Using This Method?

of all extract the OneClick.jar file you downloaded (Right click the file and
select Extract)

==>Copy the file OneClick.jar (the one
from which you extracted the folder) and paste it into “OneClick>heimdalloneclick>resources>HeimdallPackage“
it, now run the file “oneclickloader” which is on same folder
will open and installation will be completed (grant access if it asks)

after installation, you’ll see the software running
your phone via USB and click on “Unsoft Brick” to unbrick your phone.

    • I think it depends on the network you love. I'll suggest you go for MTN or Etisalat network. Get your data from trusted 3rd party agent since it's more cheaper than the conventional data sales.

  4. Ok. Another thing. Does airtel bis data work on ipad or glo bis? I'm a heavy internet user,I want smthin affordable and sustainable.

  8. Prof, Thanks for your good deeds, Please how do I change the imei of Infinix x530, mobile uncle and engineer mode is not working for it as it is not showing the CDI Information tab..Please help

    • Since it's not showing cds information, then it simply means it cannot be changed over installations of these apps (Mobile Uncle, Engineerin mode.apk, and Terminal emulator) with the use of an hardware box just like Samsung user.
      However, I'll love if you can visit the samsung thread and call the guy who changed for samsung user if your infinix x530 can be changed via his octupus box

    • Thanks Prof, I will do just that. I also have a techno f7 but I mistakenly deleted a music player app and so my music player stops once a while, I know you wil ask me to copy from same model but how do I go about it?

  9. I need your help with a techno phantom a+ that is rooted and I mistakenly unistall an inbuilt music player supporting file/app, how will I go about fixing it by using another techno f7 phone?

  10. prof is the back up file the same as the stock ROM. Can I install clockworkmod in a bricked phone put a custom ROM in the phone even when it is not rooted.

    • It is thesame as stock rom. No it has to be installed before your bricked it. In a case like this, you can only install SPflash tool and flash cwmrecovery.img to your bricked phone in order to make an headway

    I just wonder on thing. I know all manufacturers wouldn't give you warranty if your phone is bricked but i don't know whether they would continue this warranty if i unbrick my phone. They would discover that your phone used to be bricked
