    Have you bricked your Karbonn A9+ smartphone? If yes then our experts can help you to recover and unbrick your Karbonn A9+. Read this Ask Expert thread to know step by step procedures on how to recover bricked karbonn A9+.

    Hi sir, I have bricked my cherry mobile flare s100 while charging. Now, It does not charge and only shows cherry mobile logo while booting. Fastboot mode and download mode opens but recovery mode doesn't. And in laptop it shows qualcomm diagonistics mode 9006 while opening it in download mode. So i tried flashing bp frimware with emmc downloader 1.2.3 bit, it shows zero 0*0 error elapsed:1s. And while flashing with emmc 1.2.4, it doesn't responds. I tried this process in windows XP, windows 7 & 8 but result is same. And too tried qpst 2.7 build 399 but while opening emmc downloader afterqusp config, it shows some cookie error failed to load image. And tried directly to flash ap firmwares with QUALFAST2.0.5 in fastbootmode but doesn't have any response because my phone is not detected in fastboot mode. So, what can I do for it, I need help.
    Please Help me. I am waiting for positive response.

    As you can see the cherrymobile logo while booting your device, so it is a softbrick and can be recovered by flashing original or Custom ROMs. Now, as you told above, I can make out the problem is with you Karbonn A9+ drivers. Try to check if your device is being properly detected while connecting it to PC. For doing so, connect your Karbonn A9+ to PC via USB cable. Now, press and hold volume up key and power key so as to enter Fastboot mode. Now when the Fastboot logo appears on your device, just right click on "My Computer" and select "Manage". Now click "Device Manager". If you see an exclamatory sign (in yellow) on any of your drivers (probably the device drivers), then you need to first fix this problem.

    To fix this, you need to first download ADB drivers from here:

    Now extract these drivers and install them on your PC. Now head back again to "Device Manager" and right click the driver which is marked exclamatory (in yellow). Then click "update driver software" and then select "browse my computer for drivers". Now select the adb driver which you downloaded and click next to apply the changes.

    Now, disconnect and then reconnect your Karbonn A9+ to your PC and enter the Fastboot mode. Now, you can flash the official or any custom ROM for your device without being getting into any errors. However, I recommend you to download and flash the official firmware.
