    Hey guys i bought this phone knowing it was bricked hoping i could revive it, however it has not been as easy as i hoped...

    Heres the situation:
    as soon as i put in the battery it goes straight to the boot loader saying

    Bootloader
    2C.7C

    Code Corrupt

    Battery OK
    Ok to Program
    Transfer Mode:
    USB

    I feel like there still maybe hope.. but i have tried the following SBFs and they all fail at
    Error Switching phone to BP pass through mode (0x70BE)

    VZW_A855_ESD20_QSC6085BP_C_01.3B.01P_SW_UPDATE
    VZW_A855_FRG01B_QSC6085BP_C_01.43.01P_SW_UPDATE_01
    VZW_A855_FRG22D_QSC6085BP_C_01.43.01P_SW_UPDATE_01

    all from Peter Alfonso's site... i have used RSDlite 4.8 and 4.6

    also using windows 7 i have done this multiple times with my DX and had it bricked pretty bad a while back but got it fixed... so i'm hoping the same can happen here..

    is it too far gone?
    Thanks i know your busy...

    Don't know for sure, but I have never heard of or seen one specifically say "code corrupt" on the bootloader. But that's just me, and I'm no expert......but sounds like u have tried everything, so I would say to far gone. Hope u didn't pay a lot for it!

    Have you given any thought about trying to flash a recovery on it first like RZRecovery? Try that then see if you can either SBF or flash a ROM to it. What's the worst case, you brick it!?!? LOL That's my two pennies shot into the darkness!

    Try flashing a boot icon.

    Just a shot in the dark but I think they tried flashing a bad boot icon sbf.

    You hold the physical "X" on the keyboard while holding the power button. As soon as you see the "M" logo you release the power button while still holding "X." If you're using RZRecovery, it'll go straight into recovery.

    If you want it back to stock, Peter Alfonso has sbf files for that. There was a thread on here that I read about flashin the FRG83D sbf using RSDLite, then downloading the FRG83G from FRG83D zip file. Use recovery to install the zip after sbfing.

    Oops, that was an accident. Anyway, you could flash the 2.0.1 sbf, and if the feature is in that sbf, you will get notifications for an OTA update either to 1)FRG83G/D or 2) the next update after 2.0.1 (2.1) and you'll keep updating through those versions until 2.2. I'm not 100% sure about that so don't take my word. But if you sbf a stock file then you'll get OTAs. That's for certain.
