Hard wipe the internal memory?

Hi folks,

Do you know of any way to hard wipre the 'internal storage' on the Sprint diamond?

I ask as my diamond is effectively bricked because of the .nbh on there (re-lock rom) is bad and as the USB port is not working, there's no way to connect to the phone to get rid of the file other than whacking 5v across some of the pins on the storage chip etc.

I already took it appart/re-assembled to try to fix the usb port so there's no taking it back to the store at this point...

Re: Hard wipe the internal memory?

why do you want to wipe internal memorty then? and why is it bricked? I don't understand, can you turn on the device and load wm?


are you saying you tried to relock it and now it does something funny, do you just get bootloader? can you give some more data?

He is stuck and can't boot up. But I don't know if you can.

Re: Hard wipe the internal memory?

have you tried to hard reset the device (with the buttons) and seen if that can get you loaded up?

Re: Hard wipe the internal memory?

yup, tried hard reset, no difference. it's stuck on the tricolor with a bad .nbh file and a broken usb port so no way to put a good one on there.

sounds like you might be scrooged then, the hard reset was about the only thing I think that may have saved you.

Re: Hard wipe the internal memory?

No one ever got stuck like this and needed to just wipe info?

Was hoping I could either sell it for parts on flea-bay or give parts to people here... Can't do it while my personal info is still on the internal storage though.
