Project Status Partially Ready. Partially Working
Project Progress We have:
  • Amar Haskovic as tester
  • A Device to pull info from
  • Method(s) Deployed:
  • Loader Method via USB OTG
  • QFIL Method
    • NOTE:

    • This is a closed project therefore, you have to subscribe to access the unbrick files. You can subscribe from here
    • Do you have a working Nexus 5X? Help us support this project more by helping us gather some device specific info from your device. Contact me at arewa@devs.aryk.store. Thank you as you do!
    • You can also help us share this page in your groups and social profiles so that more people get to know this project. Thank you as you do!

    From the project info table above, you could see that we have listed two (2) unbrick methods to be deployed. Below here, I will give step by step instructions on how to unbrick your hardbricked Nexus 5X using each method.

    How to Unbrick Hardbricked Nexus 5X: USB OTG Method

    1. From the Nexus 5X Unbrick Project Folder, download the loader file and extract it onto a folder on your PC.
    2. Now, format your SD Card. exFAT is preferred.
    3. Download and extract DiskImageRev2 from here onto a folder on your PC then, open it.
    4. Slot your SD Card in a card reader and connect it to your PC.
    5. Launch DiskImageRev2 on your PC - as Admin preferably.
    6. On launch, DiskImageRev2 should detect and display the drive where your SD Card is connected. If otherwise, browse to select the drive.
    7. From DiskImageRev2, browse to the folder where you saved / copied the Nexus 5X Loader.img file on your PC and select it.
    8. Now, click Write and wait until DiskImageRev2 completes the process.
    9. Once DiskImageRev2 has successfully written the files on the SD Card, your SD Card is now bootable! You may now insert it on your Nexus 5X and boot the device using its bootloader key combo.

      Unbrick Method Intro

      The Loader method requires a full ROM Dump also known as a full blk0 backup of a working Nexus 5X correctly/rightly flashed or written on a pretty good and fast class 10 SD Card.

      The logic behind this method is that, as already demonstrated on Moto Z Play, LG G4, LG V10, Moto X Pure/Style and others, most Qualcomm devices can boot from SD Card formatted using the right system files written in the right order.

      That said, we might be able to unbrick hardbricked Nexus 5X using the same method. But because the Nexus 5X lacks SD Card Slot, we will attempt 3.0 USB OTG.

    How to Unbrick Nexus 5X: QFIL Method

    1. Download the contents of the QFIL Folder from the Nexus 5X Unbrick Project Folder and Extract them onto a folder on your PC.
    2. Download HS-USB QDLoader Drivers here and install it on your PC.
    3. Open the Nexus 5X QFIL Files folder on your PC to view its content.
    4. Launch/Open QFIL on your PC. You may download latest QPST from here if not installed on your PC yet.
    5. Now, on QFIL, choose Flat Build and for programmer choose the firehose file seen in the QFIL Files folder you opened in Step 3 above.
    6. Click Load XML and choose rawprogam0.xml and patch0.xml both in the QFIL Files folder in which the Firehose file is located.
    7. Finally, click Download. QFIL should successfully download the files on your Nexus 5X.

      Unbrick Method Intro

      The aim of this method is to kick your Nexus 5X out of the Qualcomm HS-USB DLoader 9008 mode so that full firmware can be loaded using the usual flash.bat method. Meanwhile, it should be noted that we may have to shut-pins to force the Nexus 5X into normal HS-USB DLoader 9008 wherein QFIL can download recovery files on the device without any interruptions.

      If that becomes necessary, I shall upload an illustrated picture displaying how to shut the pins here.
