I pressed and held volume up key for sometime and my Lenovo Vibe Z is seems to be bricked (not charging or switching on). I would like to get into to the boot-loader screen to factory reset the device. Two things:

  1. Please help me with the key combinations required to get into boot-loader.
  2. Or ways to unlock the boot-loader in Lenovo Vibe Z.

  • How did you manage to brick it? Or is it simply not charging? – 1990clb Apr 15 '14 at 10:58
  • While I was on call I pressed and held volume up button..and that was it. Its bricked or not I have no clue. – Harsh Vardhan Apr 15 '14 at 11:01

    I would be more concerned with 'not charging' than anything else. Is the cable or the plug damaged? It may be a hard brick, i.e. damaged hardawre. Start with the plug and cable for the charger, try another socket and your PC to charge. Then try another cable / charger. Failing that, try another battery if you can get a hold of one, and so on until we can isolate where the problem is. – RossC Apr 15 '14 at 15:13

Done. Problem was with the charger, was using Samsung charger. But I still have no clue why it got off by holding volume up key and I am sure that charging was above 20%, it should have resurrected to life when I pressed power button. And while I am at it, this phone awesome except its antenna. Voice breaks(Rx and Tx both) with the jerks on road.
