The problem is that I didn’t find the required file “loader.e88loader.bin”. Should I use another branch for this purpose? Also I think that I already bricked my C118.


Best regards,
Robert,

That said, I added some changes a while ago locally (not in the repo) to flash my c139 phone and haven't gotten any bricks yet (cross fingers). I was working on getting nuttx-bb flashed as a sole app on the phone, debugging startup problems and re-flashing repeatedly.
