Factory Firmware Recovery Method (Using Uldr OEM NCK/ USBSafeLoader.Bin File)
In this method when you boot short a device and flash it with USBsafeloader.bin file, it will accept downgrade/factory firmware without creating any error and its NV data will be safe. The NV data will not be erased and after getting your device in download mode you can easily execute NV hash commands to get unlock code/datalock code for your device. After getting the hash codes from your device, you can easily flash upgrade/normal firmware of your choice to restore your device in normal working condition.
This method is very useful in this sense, there is no need to flash dashboard/ WebUI, no need to repair/ write/ restore IMEI , no need to correct serial number and also no need to write WIFI hotspot connection information on your device.
Note: This method will not work on all devices, If it works on your device then you are a luck one, usually it works with devices having signed firmware but version below 21.300.xx.xx.
Important: Bin file and Boot Point Schematic Diagram for every model is separate, look into Download Section of our website and download respective file of your model.
