[Tutorial] How to revive a totally dead Infinix Zero X506 by joining Mother Board mount points

#1

There are a number of reasons why your Infinix Zero could go totally dead:

* Drained battery (Charge the battery)
* Interrupted flashing (Fix using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-808.html or take out and reinsert the battery using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-8523.html)
* Flashing the wrong firmware (Download the right firmware @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-533.html)
* Not detected by flash tools (Install VCOM drivers using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html)  

As you can see, each of the above already has a fix. If however, the Infinix Zero X506 is totally dead and no longer detected by the PC (no sound when connected even with a charged battery in the phone, different USB cords and PCs) then you might need to do a mother board jumper as this guide will explain.

Requirements

* Download the firmware for your variant of the Infinix Zero X506 @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-533.html
* Install VCOM drivers on the PC using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html
* Engineering / precision tools

Procedure
* Disassemble the phone down to the mother board using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-8523.html
* On the Mother Board, locate two golden points named GND and KCOLO (see the red arrows in the images below )

* Solder a thin wire to the GND point then join it to the KCOLO point
* Connect the phone to the PC via a USB cord just to test; the PC should now recognize it and make a sound, disconnect the phone
* Flash the right firmware using SP flash tool @  https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html
* Disconnect the wire from the Mother Board after flashing
* Reassemble the phone then boot up

See a video demonstration of this procedure using another board in the video below or @ https://youtu.be/jPn4FBAHib0

Thanks so much Hovatek. This (https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-14135.html) came in as a life saver. I been trying to get this phone together for more than six month (https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-9776-po...l#pid81892). During which I obviously got another phone. The problem went from bad to worse as it totally went dead. But this guide revived my phone. Kudos
