[Please help] hard bricked infinix x551. can not boot or charge

#1

Please help. I had soft bricked my infinix x551 but imanaged to instar cw recovery and i was only left with flashing the stock rom. I decided to see what SP flash can do so i clicked on memory test and checked on RAM. I ran the test and it started, but i accidentally unpluged the usb from the phone. Thed phone refused to boot completely, showing no sign of life. I tried to press power + volume+ but still nothing. I tried to charge it for an hour, 2 hours still no sign, even when charging the phone is cold and the adapter is also cold. I pluged it to my pc and it was detected Mediatek DA USB VCOM port but can do nothing. Tried to use sp flash tools but still nothing.

Am wondering maybe the memory test interuption might have damaged the ram, or cloud it be hard bricked , low battery charge , still i am not sure. Can someone please come to my rescue before i declare Infinix an unworthy phone with short life span.

Hovatek i need you help.

Thanks Hovatek .. but the method of recovering from an interuption of sp flash tool did not work. What i realized is that, that method is like waiting for a phone too discharge its self then start charging so as to recover from the baterry supply system failure. So what i simply did was to manually open the device and diconnect the battery from the system, and bam! magic hapend , i reconected it back and Sp flash tool could now flash the recovery, then i reinstalled the stock rom.
Magic right!.

the technique you used was also listed under ways to speed things up at the guide. It just doesnt work for everybody, glad it did for you.
consistent charging (not discharging) is the aim because the phone's OS thinks the battery is flat (batterystats.bin)
Please drop your own experience as a comment @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-808.html , it'll help give someone in the same situation hope and affirm that the fix works
