Hi,

I have a Samsung SM-Z9005 phone that I purchased on eBay last year.  It's currently crashing on boot but did work for about 3 months before that and was used as a daily phone.  I hope to resurrect it sometime over the next few weeks, perhaps with stock firmware.  I thought it was a prototype but I now think it was actually a pre-production model for Orange France as it had Orange France icons preloaded and "Sent from my Orange Mobile" (in French) as the default email signature.

Does anyone know more about the device as I was going to add to the Wiki but wanted more information first.

More pictures of it here - http://imgur.com/a/IXa2x

Yes  pre-production almost ready for release but was never released .

At the minute can't type anything in as it's doing a kernel crash at boot, yes the Store was installed but could never get it going as it said I think I was in the wrong region, or something like that.  I did buy an Orange France Sim card from eBay to trick the store but unfortunately it died before i had a chance to try it.

Thanks, that first story sounds exactly like it - http://www.tizenexperts.com/2013/08/samsung-sm-z9005-to-release-via-orange-firmware-z9005xxeamh4/

From the back label:

Model: SM-Z9005
FCC ID: A3LSMZ9005
SSN: -Z9005GSMH

Interestingly the battery is marked "Not for sale".  It's a EB-B455BE battery dated 14/10/2013

Regards,

Jonathan

For me this looks like the Upload Mode... Ramdump...

Debug Mode is set to HIGH

Reason looks like something Modem (AMSS) related... NV item stuff...
If I remember correct... this is Qualcomm based device...
You see something with MSM...


Hmmmmm.
In theory you could connect to some Tools...  ;)

Minimum... you should see if USB cable is connected 1 COM Port... Modem...

Maybe key pressing is required...

Maybe try all Hardware keys to press...
Maybe you find combination to leave...

I don't know....
Try 3 times short press power..
If nothing explode...
Try the other keys...

Remove SIM card...
Maybe this helps to bypass.

Remove also SD card...

Is Recovery Mode possible?
Is Download Mode possible?

Without Tools + Firmware + knowledge low chance...  :-[

Best Regards

Thank you adfree, I'm going to have a good go at it over the weekend with your suggestions.  Also going to try to see if Kies can see it.  Someone else has mentioned ithor which looks very geeky, but I'll see what happens then.
