my phone has fallen and it cannot boot. The only accessible thing is fastboot, but even there I cannot flash TWRP.
When I try to flash TWRP 3.1.1 or 3.1.0 I get:
>fastboot.exe flash recovery twrp.img target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes sending 'recovery' (21100 KB)... OKAY [ 0.483s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (status read failed (Too many links)) finished. total time: 0.544s
The phone is unable to boot at all. So adb is out of question.
Additional info that may help:
>fastboot.exe getvar all (bootloader) version: (bootloader) token:OrhCgsF/c0ZJ0PDtn3UZAR4A (bootloader) sec_boot:TRUE (bootloader) variant: eMMC (bootloader) secure:yes (bootloader) version-baseband: (bootloader) version-bootloader: (bootloader) display-panel: (bootloader) off-mode-charge:0 (bootloader) charger-screen-enabled:0 (bootloader) max-download-size: 0x20000000 (bootloader) partition-type:cache:ext4 (bootloader) partition-size:cache: 0x18000000 (bootloader) partition-type:userdata:ext4 (bootloader) partition-size:userdata: 0x683bfbe00 (bootloader) partition-type:system:ext4 (bootloader) partition-size:system: 0x78000000 (bootloader) soc_id:251 (bootloader) serialno:10adc264 (bootloader) kernel:lk (bootloader) product:MSM8992 all: finished. total time: 0.217s
From this message I believe the storage chip is done for but you never know.
The phone claims to be unlocked (it should be as I use custom ROM). Physically there does not appear to be any damage, but when battery is connected it does not start at all.
I wanted to use TWRP ability provide data through MTP. There is TWRP installed, but it was accessible by updater application where was option to reboot to TWRP. So TWRP should be already there. But when pressing volume down button during boot I get only to fastboot.
Is there any way how to get at least to my data or is the phone completely done?
Tried advice from Robert in comments to directly boot TWRP.
>fastboot.exe boot twrp.img downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY [ 0.500s] booting... FAILED (status read failed (Too many links)) finished. total time: 1.150s
Also advice from alexcs in comments does not yield any results. The phone cannot boot to recovery.
