      The red light indicator does not work anymore either, even if I connect it to the pc.does this mean that it’s beyond recovery? ;(

    1. Naresh Kumar

      Hi Rohit,
      if your Yureka/Yureka Plus going to Fastboot Mode, then it is display Resolution problem. you can flash Rom through Fastboot.
      Your Phone will be Ok.

      1. Nikhil

        Did you short the pins and press volume up key simultaneously and while doing the above connect usb. You have to do these things together.

    Hi Abhishek,

    I was trying to flash my Yureks with CM13 and tried to flash via fast boot, at first after flashing phone started but screen was flickering a lot, unable to read and do anything. then I again repeated same steps but after reboot phone was completely briccked.
    NOW I can see only Red LED light while connecting to USB. I have also tried above two steps but still no solution.

    when I performed 1st Method (mention in this post) , write eMMC on memory card it is converted to FAT and size is showing 18 mb. is it correct? did I follow right method.

  20. john

    I tried intstalling all the drivers. but whenever i try to connect my phone through USB i get the error “the usb device you have connected is MALFUNCIONED” can u help me out with this?

  21. Farhan Radhanpuri

    hello sir,
    your guide is excellent. i am able to enter in fastboot mode. but it stuck in fastboot mode after clicking flash all it only shows “waiting for device” .i think there is driver problem. i have tried so many adb drivers and usb drivers. but in device manager it shows “CODE 10” device cannot start.

    every time when i trying to install different drivers for different website it always shows finish successfully CODE 10 device cannot start.

    i have also installed latest android sdk and java but still problem remains the same.

    i think it may be because of USB DEBUGGING MODE disabled due to hard bricked.

    please sir help me i have tried so many guides to resolve this CODE 10 error in adb driver installation.

    please sir reply as soon as possible………

    1. Naresh Kumar

      hi farhan,

      this is a driver related problem, so think you try another PC/Laptop with another usb cable. make sure your cable connected in motherboard usb ports, so more many times drivers not supports so try again with passions. good luck

  26. Armaan

    hii !! I am Armaan from Bangalore. Can anyone unbrick my Yu Yureka in Bangalore ? I don’t mind paying a nominal charge for the efforts.. I have tried QFil method but it does not detect the phone as Serial Port. Also i have tried the SDCARD method but that also failed. Honestly, I have been lucky only once to get the phone to FAST BOOT screen but unfortunately nothing happened after that & after some time my Laptop Battery died due to which I could not try any options. I have tried atleast 20-25 times the shorting of pins 2 & 4 & also 2 & 6 I would appreciate some help from anyone in bangalore who could bring it back to life. Armaan @ 99006693599

  27. ravi rai

    sir pls help my Yureka also flashing this procedure but its gey automatically reboot again and again pls help sir what i do

  28. Dinesh Sharma


    I have tried your second procedure and followed by 4 steps from first procedure.

    After 4 steps I have short the 2nd and 6th point as described in the image and the same time I have pressed the volume up button, With this position I have attached the cable to my pc I released the volume up button and shorten cable from device but now I see the vertical lines on the screen as displayed when screen is broken. But, the is still there, no progress.

    I have detached the cable and pressed volume up button and connected the cable, now screen displayed normally with fast boot mode but driver is still missing, I think. When I tried to press Volume Up & down + power to see boot menu it displays Yu Logo with text “Boot ” and never gets the boot menu.

    I am having much hope in your post and I think you may be knowing this issue. Please help me to come out from this mesh.
