what do you mean by dirty flash
a dirty flash is a improper rom/iso (both are phone bootable hard and software ) that isn't ment for your phone it's also a rom(or ISO which ever you want to call it ) that's broken or incomplete like a incomplete app from any app store

Hello, my phone (lenovo a369i) was stuck on the lenovo logo and nothing was happening so I wanted to flash my phone and downloaded the smart phone flash software and launched it. Then I followed all steps and I clicked the download button within the software after some time there was some power issue with my PC so the process was not completed. After that when I tried to open my mobile it was not opening and even the lenovo brand was not displaying now but was displaying before.

I think this is due to the incomplete process which killed my phone. So now my mobile is not opening and not showing the lenovo logo also are there any chances to repair my mobile.

Its very simple get to a pc and flash a new rom either custom or stock and flash it with your phone model's usb driver but if you had not backuped your data then there is no way to recover i just soft bricked my phone but i flashed a rom and my phone get started

Re: Difference between hard and soft brick

A dirty flash is when you already flashed a ROM, let's say Cyanogenmod 11 (KitKat), and then without doing a data/factory reset in the recovery, you flash a newer ROM on it (let's say Cyanogenmod 12 (Lolipop)). SOMETIMES this can work, but 95% of the time it won't without glitches.

This won't kill your device, merely a chance for a softbrick. When that happens, you just go to the bootloader > recovery and then data/factory reset, and you install the newer ROM.

You will lose your apps and data, though, that's why some people try a dirty flash first.

I did a dirty flash on my phone and it hard-bricked it, not soft-bricked.

I face this problem too, I try to uninstall Xposed Firmware but It boot me in to Recovery mode (I use TWRP). When I try to reboot again, It always boot me in to recovery mode.
But i can fixed, I flash rom with official firmware that change Custom Recovery to Official Recovery. Thats mean, You device is only soft-brick not Hard-brick.
