I'm very glad to hear that, but then I guess your phone could connect in qdloader mode, just an inappropriate driver was installed initially. Or if not, then I ask you to summarize your work. What did you do in what order and which driver did you install.
Thank you.

The driver that was automatically installed was the Marshall diag one, I tried different drivers from Qualcomm, TCL and others found on the net, and although they installed fine the phone was still recognised as a Marshall device, checked with usbdeview.

I couldn't get it to go into download mode (qdloader) mode or do anything else at all, tried with the debrick kit and Qualcomm software but without luck.

As a last resort I installed Xiaomi's MiPhone software which includes MiFlash which worked perfectly.

- Opened MiFlash and phone was detected.
- Went into MiFlash's advanced mode, pressing the Browse... button at the top left.
- Loaded up the files it asks for which are in the Q39 debrick .zip you posted, Flash Programmer, Boot Image, Raw XML File and Patch XML File, no need to specify the first two .bat files.
- Press OK then press Flash to start the restore process.
- It should take about 10 minutes to finish.

From there on I was able to get the phone into qdloader mode and use the debrick kit to get it back onto the original rom.

Just one question, Do the debrick/update files you posted wipe the phone's Modemst1/Modemst2 nvram partitions?

At least for me, after using them I've had to restore the two Modemst files manually or, which is exactly the same, the EFS backup made by TWRP, if not my phone can't get mobile coverage.

Cheers once again

Thank you for your summary. The TCL Q39 firmware wipes everything making your emax mini permanently useless if you haven't made a twrp backup. That was the reason to remove it from here.
I've got an emax mini in similar state like your one was and MiFlash was one of the first tools I tried but that's unable to detect this phone, regardless of the installed driver.

Is your phone recognised at all?

If you connect it by USB to your PC and hold down the power button for about a minute it should finally be detected.

If the driver is not automatically installed by Windows it can be installed by the driver installer that comes in the Unbrick Kit.

This flasher was tested on many machines, many times and it works properly. So, you should discover the problem on your own computer. Your antivir or firewall app might interrupt the installation process but I have no idea if you don't provide details about your operating system and the error message(es) that you get.

Just to let Bencebacsi and the rest of you know that I was able to unbrick my Emax Mini using Xiaomi ...

Hey,

I have the same issue with my phone.
The only thing that really works is the led that lights up when I plug the phone to USB.

Could you explain the steps to unbrick my phone too?
