I have hard bricked my phone by flashing wrong bootloader. My phone wont show any signs of life but warming of the back side.

I have some private photos, messages, etc that i don't want the repair man see them. He said to me that when you JTAG the phone, all the phone memory contents such as ROM and internal memory are completely wiped. Is this true? Cant he recover internal memory sdcard before or after JTAG?

Please only answer if you are 100% sure

Thank you

  • What do you mean, "when you JTAG the phone"? JTAG is the name of a standard used by hardware debugging interfaces. Are you going to connect a hardware debugger to your phone's mainboard?

  • Yes, its exactly what you mentioned. However i dont have the hardware... The complete expression would be "JTAG unbreak recovery".My phone wont boot up and using such hardware a new rom/bootloader will be forceably installed to the phone. Commented Sep 12, 2013 at 17:31
