About LG V10 Hardbrick Issues

A hard-bricked which is also known as hardware brick is an expensive issue that renders the device completely useless and almost totally inaccessible. Unlike the soft-brick issues (software brick) that can be rectified by simply flashing certain partitions on the phone, hardbrick issues take you some lengths further.

Since hardbrick issues usually have effects on the phone's hardware, some corrections or modifications need be made on all or some of the affected hardwares of the phone before it can be fully restored.

Having said that, JTAG happens to be one of the commonest and near 100% successful corrective solution for a hardbricked LG V10, JTAG does have its own costly shortcomings which then gives you the reasons to consider JTAG only in last minutes of giving up on the phone.

Meanwhile, provided you have access to the right tools and tutorials, you can actually unbrick a hard-bricked LG V10 without loosing up the phone.

A Hardbricked LG V10 Will;

  1. Not power-on
  2. Powers on but displays blank screen
  3. Only vibrates when the power button is pressed and nothing more
  4. Shows either QHS-USB QDLoader 9008, QHUSB_BULK, QHUSB_BULK PID_9008 (in Windows device manager) when connected to the PC; if it is powered by Qualcomm chipset
  5. Have unstable connection/communication with the PC (when connected)

What Can Cause LG V10 to Hardbrick
  1. Uncompleted/interrupted OTA update operation
  2. Over-heating; when the device is heated to a temperature too high for a long time, it may shutdown itself or reboot incessantly until it goes to EDL mode
  3. Flashing operation that goes wrong. When you flash your LG V10 using wrong files, for example; when you flash an LG V10-H900 using the flash files meant for LG V10-H901, the phone would most likely hardbrick. Another instance of this is when the LG V10 flashing operation was interrupted
  4. Some root attempt may also get your LG V10 hardbricked

About this LG V10 Hardbrick Fixes

The idea of having these LG V10 unbrick files created came as far back as mid 2017 when one of our team members met his LG V10-H901 dead while plugged-in (charging). All attempts to turn on the phone failed, wondering how possible a phone that was working perfectly okay could become dead only by charging.

He brought the phone to the office, completely immersed in the work, following several days of teamwork and individual suggestions, we were able to revive the phone with all the files in it gone though.

Meanwhile, it was only the LG V10-H901 unbrick files we had until we had followers requesting for the VS990, F600L and later H900 model. Our LG V10 unbrick files folder now contains full unbrick files for nearly all LG V10 variants.

This LG V10 Hardbrick Fixes Will Not Work for Your Device If:

  1. That device becomes dead due to high voltage (passage)
  2. Devices with broken/spoilt external storage slot and or spoilt USB port
  3. Devices with broken screen. Ensure your device's screen is still okay (displays fine) before attempting this fixes
  4. Ensure your battery is still okay and can retain charges

  • Make sure your phone's battery is at the least 80% charged before you begin the process

  • You must not disconnect the phone from the PC amid/during the flashing process

How to Unbrick Your Hardbricked LG V10

Initially, it was the QFIL method we were using to revive hardbricked LG V10 and it works really fine with virtually all the LG V10 we have used it for but, the loader method proves to be a lot more simpler, less time consuming and a much faster method to recover hardbricked LG V10 so we begin gathering the loader files for different LG V10 variants as well.

Today we have 4 loader files for 4 different LG V10 variants and QFIL files for several others.

Depending on your LG V10 variant and the method you choose to go for, see the unbrick instructions below:
