Hello Friends,

I am new to the forum and have recently hard bricked my LG G Stylo (LG MS631 MetroPCS). In spending MANY hours on Google, I finally found the thread at
Unbrick LG G4 Brick hs-usb Qdloader 9008 Without Box
but my model isn't supported in that thread.

I have been without my phone for SEVERAL days, and I need help in getting it to work again.

If anyone can team up with me in TeamViewer or some other software... or just offer instructions on how to get it working again... I will do my BEST to make it worth your while. I have searched everywhere for a solution, but have had no success so far -- Howard Forums, XDA Developers, Android Forums, and others.

The phone shows no sign of life, does not power up, has no led light, offers no boot screen -- but when I plug it into the laptop (a Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1) using a USB cord, it shows up in the Device Manager in "Other Devices" (after selecting View--->Show Hidden Devices) as "QHSUSB_BULK" which means that there must be SOME hope for it -- ???

There was absolutely nothing wrong with the phone before I flashed the wrong firmware to it. I was trying to downgrade it from Android Marshmallow 6.0 back to Android Lollipop because I couldn't figure out how to root it while it was running Marshmallow.

Using the LG Up tool, the phone accepted the firmware package -- the MS63110J kdz file -- it said 100% complete... looked like it was going to restart on it's own -- but NEVER did -- and has been dead ever since.

Anyone able to assist, please let me know!!

Most Appreciatively,
1BlackHat

kabzfredo,
I'm in almost the exact same situation, only it's not my phone. A friend of the Boss upgraded the Bosses phone and got it stuck in a soft brick (Security booting error 1003). Because everyone thinks I have some secret knowledge about Computers and smartphones the Boss asked me to fix it for him (I'm an iOS guy secret knowledge=Google search). After beating my head against the wall most of the evening (LG Stylo with a MetroPCS model number and a Sprint Sim Card) I found a solution. Downloaded the files I needed and started the Flash process. While I was waiting I dozed off. When I woke up about 90 minutes later the process said it was complete, but the phone was DOA!!! To make a short story long, I ended up in the same place, a dead phone that shows up in my device manager as a Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM24). Again I searched and started asking questions. I was told that there were fixes but not for the LG Stylo G. Before I walk into work, with my tail between my legs, I though I'd try again, and found this thread. Do you have any insight into a solution that would make the phone functional again? If not then I'd like to be added to the list of inquiring minds.

Thanks

The Schmerd

4. Slot your SD Card in a card reader and connect it to your PC.
5. Launch DiskImageRev2 on your PC - as Admin preferably.
6. On launch, DiskImageRev2 should detect and display the drive where your SD Card is connected. If otherwise, browse to select the correct drive.
7. From DiskImageRev2, browse to the folder where you saved / copied the LG G Stylo H631 Loader.img file on your PC and select it.
8. Now, click Write and wait until DiskImageRev2 completes the process.
9. Once DiskImageRev2 has successfully written the files on the SD Card, your SD Card is now bootable! You may now insert it on your LG G Stylo H631 and boot the device using its bootloader key combo.

Brief Note:
The Loader method requires a full ROM Dump also known as a full blk0 backup of a working LG G Stylo H631 correctly flashed or written on a pretty good and fast class 10 SD Card.

Please after repairing the phone upload the documents already downloaded to help others.

Thank you for your attention.

I've got the files but they don't seem to be working. I've tried both solutions/methods. The QFIL method just says Sahara failure and download failure. The loader method is to suppose to make my micro sd card bootable but when I put it the device nothing comes up. I was thinking about doing both but idk what will happen and I don't want to mess anything else. Does anyone have some advice?
