9900 bricked from update

My device got bricked from updating. Got stuck at "Connecting to boot ROM". Device died, does not respond to anything, device manager says to change settings in computer control panel, followed the steps, nothing helps. Connecting and reconnecting device doesnt do anything, battery pull doesnt do anything, device manager can wake up the phone.

Thanx, it woke up! :smileyhappy:

 

Do you know where I can find and download the multi-language bundle and how to install it too?

Hi!

I'm glad it worked! :Clap:

Access your device OS from your vendor site using the attached link,

Do you need manuals as well?

Thanks,

Re: 9900 bricked from update

if it's not too much problem, yes...

 

One more question though... Im from Sweden, and my carrier hasn't got the 9900 yet. However, there is one other carrier in Sweden that does. Can I use that software instead? However, that would mean a downgrade from the software that I just spent the whole night installing, to the old version I had... Do you know any carrier that has bundle 1672 or higher with multi-language pack?
