# Bricked Intex Aqua Fish after failed update to Sailfish OS 3 [answered]

I wanted to update my Intex Aqua Fish to Sailfish OS 3 using

devel-su
ssu re 3.0.0.8
version --dup
reboot


The update wend well (no error reported), but the phone was bit lagging (this was solved by cache cleanup), the phone was working well, but it started to show update to version Sailfish OS 2, which was very weird. Otherwise, everything was fully working.

I tried the above commands once more, it failed with error about inconsistency of cache and possible breakup to the system. I performed factory reset, it hanged forever (several hours), there was no progress. I rebooted and since then the phone doesn't boot.

It show message that I should connect it to the computer (I use Linux) and run telnet 10.42.66.66, but it doesn't work (phone's network interface is correctly detected, network is running well), connection times out.

Is there now any way how to flash the system and unbrick the device?

When not possible you evtl. bricked the device then you need to reflash the device.
