Hi All -- Device has been running very well until a couple weeks ago when I left the phone sitting for probably the better part of a week without being plugged in to the charger. Presently, my phone does not power on at all with any charger I try and it is 100% unresponsive to every combination of press/hold buttons during attempted power on. I purchased a replacement battery with no change, I charged both of my batteries with an external power supply (at proper voltage/currents) and no response from it. when I connect touchpad to computer and boot it with PWR+volume down, it is detected as QDLoader. I found the Qualcomm drivers and have them installed. Touchpad is repeatably detected in Loader/download mode with PWR+Volume down. I found QPST -- a software utility package from Qualcomm used to work with several devices, including the touchpad. QPST's "SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD" module detects the touchpad as a device in download state. The software gives me the option to backup/restore the device and it looks as though it would perhaps be able to bring my touchpad back to life. I know I'm not the only one with this problem -- i've read hundreds of threads about touchpads "stuck" in Loader/Download mode. If I had a Qualcomm-formatted dump, I'd try restoring it to my device and properly document how to recover from brick to functional (if it works..) Is there any way someone with a working touchpad would consider booting your F160k into QDLoader mode (power + volume down) and doing the dumps with the "Software Download" module from QPST? There is a "backup" tab that creates a QCN file that it looks like I can restore to my touchpad and bring it back to life. Anyone tried this already? If not -- would someone be onboard to help? To summarize what I'm asking and be 100% clear, here's the drill 1) backup with rom-manager/clockworkmod or whatever 2) wipe data/cache 3) boot LG f160k in download mode (turn off..press volume up and down) 4) connect phone to computer, run SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD module of QPST -- click backup tab -- do the backup, send the backup file my way or post on forum. 5) back into clockworkmod -- restore the backup from step 1. This would give me a clean qualcomm-formatted backup that would contain zero of your personal data or account data. You could restore right back to your functional ROM with no mess and no fuss. Final note -- if someone has already tried this and succeeded (or failed) please let me know!
