I’m sorry if this isn’t the best spot to post this. I haven’t found a forum dedicated to this device.
I’m looking for a direct download of the stock ROM, or at least the update zip for Android 5.1.1 (or perhaps any update zip), for the Verizon Ellipsis 8 (QTAQZ3). I have soft bricked it (doesn’t get past the Verizon splash/loading screen). I want to attempt to unbrick it & am not having success finding many resources. It does not have a custom recovery installed & I have not found a successful way to unbrick it yet.
It is not under warranty. I am the second owner, it was given to me (I managed to brick it within a few hours of receiving it). I have tried the following:
- Launching recovery & reformatting to factory defaults & cache (multiple times).
- Restarting in safe mode by holding volume down with power (does the same thing, doesn’t get past splash screen).
- Removing back of device & disconnecting battery (for at least an hour or more).
I’m not sure what else to do other than try to flash the original stock ROM or try re-installing the 5.1.1 update via sideload in the recovery menu. But I haven’t been able to find any direct downloads for the aforementioned. If anyone has either of these, or knows where I can get one of them, I would really appreciate a link. I have looked around on Verizon’s support website. I understand that the manufacturer of the device is Quanta Computer (I can’t post links yet: quantatw dot com), But I couldn’t find any information on this specific device from their site.
Edit: I have also read through some threads here on the XDA forums, but haven’t found a working solution. I manged to brick it by using Kingo Root.
Edit: On another note, I have gone into the recovery & selected “apply update from ADB”, which brings up the prompt “Now send the package you want to apply to the device with ‘adb sideload <filename>’…”. However, ADB on my system (Linux) is not recognizing the device:
