  1. Hiya, my phone (e400) really appears to be bricked… it does not respond to either power or power+vol dn or vol up + vol dn + power… totally non-responsive screen. I know that the charge was at 80% before the reboot where everything went awry… I now connect it to my machine and the usb connection is not picked up by my machine. Have I lost my phone?

  2. To Resolve the Keep Restarting Issue turn off phone or remove battery and insert it again then Press And Hold Home + Vol Down + Power Then Release it When It Vibrates it Will Hard Reset And Wait and it Will Reboot and Then Congrats

  3. DONE! At first time (downgrading from Cyanogen Mod9) it was stuck in boot loop and does not go past there – even with the hard reset!! Tried to “flash” the same .kdz the second time, and still boot loop, but this time made hard reset again and… VOILÁ… working! Be patient. Google it… because, from my experience… if the phone still responds to our inputs… is probably “fixable”!!
