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


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.


* 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

* 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
Hello Hovatek please can this be applied to other phones. I have a tecno m7 that just went dead without prior notice. Thanks
