16.10.2012    RIFF JTAG – LG P698 Optimus Link Unbrick – Dead Boot Repair Supported

Repairing bricked LG P698 is easy with the RIFF Box. But it requires non-beginner soldering skills (since JTAG pads on board are very small and are close to each other).

To resurrect LG P698:

  •  Solder JTAG cable to LG P698 JTAG pads;
  •  Insert USB Data cable into board and PC;
  •  Make sure LG P698 is selected in the list of models;
  •  Click Resurrect button;
  •  Wait till software signals a successful operation completion;
  •  Disconnect power supply, de-solder JTAG wires;

Now phone is in bootable condition, that is, even if it does not start up normally, you can flash it using known flashing methods.
