    So one day i turned on my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone and noticed that alot of apps was crashing. Like says " Chrome has stopped working" and among others. Then it kept restarting itself over and over. Then after a little bit of it doing that a would take me to only the recovery screen. Aaaand then it just bricked. Hard bricked. Wont turn on, wont go into download mode nor the recovery mode. Doesnt even say if its charging or not. Now i plug it into pc and it only recognizes the phone as "Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM4). Can anybody plz help? Thanks.

    Welcome.

    That doesn't sound good. The XDA guys have suggested a possible fix here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...t3403868/page1

    Our own members may also be able to suggest something.
    At the same time I'll try to elicit a response from team members familiar with Samsungs.

    If it can be recognized by computer that's a good thing , can you get into recovery again,? Or download mode ?

    Hello Mustang 7757. Im about to try that set of instructions you sent in that link but first i like to bring up that those set of instructions look like its for solely LG phones. Does that matter?

    That is no more than a guide to the procedures involved: you’d have to find Samsung equivalents to some of those files. I think it’s unlikely to work, but apart from replacing the motherboard, or perhaps indeed the entire phone, I don’t see what else you can try.

    Hi, yeah disregard those instructions in the link, I was reading over everything again
    The only thing I can recommend since your phone can be recognized by computer , is use adb commands and try to boot it up in bootloader , if you cant get there or download mode you wont be able to recover your phone at all

    Welcome to the forums. Can the battery be removed? If so, you can remove it, and then try to reboot it to recovery that way.

    Pretty sure enabling USB debugging option was not turned on before the phone bricked me. So i wouldnt think ADB would work. Besides i tried that already

    I also tried the taking out of the battery and rebooting it in recovery or download mode. Nope. Well thanks for the responses. I may be crap up a creek on this one.

    You downloaded the adb tools to recognize the commands on the computer?

    Like golfdriver said does the prime have a removable battery? Dont remember

    Yes kept saying something like no device found. Even though the device was plugged in and the pc recognised the device. Just not as a samsung though.

    And yes battery can be removed.

    You'll need to download the adb toollks for commands to work
    And yes battery can be removed.
    You can get another battery? Might be your issue

    Also. Dont know if this means anything but if i hold the power botton down for like 15 to 20 seconds while the battery is out and its connect to computer it like disconnect and reconnect.

    Ok hopefully it is the just the battery. And ill try ADB again

    Its should be enabled , if you can get another battery and be able to open the phone you'll need to open that menu incase the phone acts up again

    How about bringing it to Samsung guy at best buy and asking him to flash firmware? I know about all problems but maybe he can do something for you?
