    Default Flashed Blu Kuban 1.0.5.2 ROM and phone wont boot....WHOLLY COW PLEASE HELP

    Hello
    I will try to calm down as I type this, but I need my phone for work and life, and right now I dont have one.

    I went from EL29 stock rooted to Blu Kuban 1.0.5.1. SInce I did not have CWM on my phone, I loaded EL26 kernel and CWM. After that flash, I had the yellow triangle, but it booted and worked ok. I had horrible battery life, so I factory reset data, wiped cache and delvik. In surfing the Blu Kuban thread, I noticed a newer version out (1.0.5.2), so I figured I would try it.

    What I did:
    Factory reset
    Ran formatall.zip
    wiped cache
    wiped delvik
    Flashed BK1.0.5.2.zip (not the upgrade). I thought I would start from full scratch.
    The phone rebooted, and it stays on Samsung screen with yellow triangle.

    What do I do? Wholly sh@#. I am about to cry.
    I see the Blu kuban thread has an upgrade zip file. I realize now I should have run it instead.

    Help please.

    Thanks

    In my panic and awaiting an answer, I downloaded the FI27 rooted ODIN, flashed it,and I have a phone....phewwww!!!
    Now, how do I get back to Blu Kuban? Do I have to reinstall CWM from auto root package, and then flash the 1.5.0.2 zip?

    Everything you did seems okay, although maybe a little excessive with the extra wiping (format_all does all that already). I usually do the same, except with Mobile Odin.

    You might have a bad download... Did you check the md5?

    Did you get the phone booted?

    If you haven't and it still sits with the yellow triangle with Samsung Logo then you are Ok -- it's not hard bricked and you should be able to boot into download mode and use Odin to restore the ROM of your choice.

    Boot into download mode (power off, power on+volume down) then use Odin to restore a ROM of your choice. Here is a link to restore the stock ICS build for our device: [ROM][ODIN][TAR]SPH-D710 FI27 (FI27 Modem/Kernel/ROM - Full Restore) - xda-developers

    Please note that the thread includes individual pieces such as kernel, modem, etc. You want a full ROM restore, which can be found in the second post titled [OC] FI27 Full Stock ROM One-Click.exe.

    There could be a chance that you may restore via Recovery if its still intact. But I'd suggest going the Odin route since its safer and you'll likely have few problems, if any, while restoring.

    Glad you got it working. Remember, if you can at least get the phone to start up and show something chances are that it can be restored. If you are not already familiar with flashing ICS or AOSP ROMs I would suggest reading through this: IMPORTANT! READ THIS - Regarding the EMMC Brick Bug on the E4GT

    Most, if not all, new recoveries are "safe". But, I still play it safe and Odin (or Mobile Odin) back to el26 (same as el29 method) when flashing new ROMs, especially AOSP.
