[Update: Instructions] BLU issues program repair for inadequate Life One X2 refurbish that left owners with obsolete phones

Around a week ago, BLU released a broken program update for a Life One X2 phone. In during slightest some cases, users who practical a refurbish were sealed out of their phones. Late this afternoon, BLU’s central Twitter account—which, most to a discomfit of influenced users, was wordless on a theme for roughly a week—issued a matter that a problem had been bound around a new update. 

For a full chronological details, we can check out a prior coverage on a theme here, though a brief chronicle is that an refurbish caused during slightest some BLU Life One X2 inclination to have an different pin/password applied, preventing users from booting and, therefore, regulating their phones. Allegedly a bureau reset could repair a issue, though would outcome in detriment of data.

AP’s possess James Sanders, author of a strange essay covering this subject, reached out to BLU and only recently perceived a following matter from a representative:

Hi James, we only wanted to refurbish we on a Life One X2, we have bound a issue, business are already updating and happy to have their inclination restored.

Details are unfortunately sparse, and nonetheless we’ve reached out to both a BLU deputy and a support line supposing by BLU for additional information and instructions, they haven’t nonetheless responded to a inquiries.

The files for a purported ‘fix’ have popped adult on Twitter, but since BLU has kept a compared sum secret, we aren’t certain how they’re dictated to be used. They could be practical around fastboot or flashed around recovery, though but a enclosed instructions, we can’t be sure. Since influenced inclination can’t foot past a PIN/password shade during boot, a preference of an OTA is approaching out of a question.

We’ll refurbish this post when we know a accurate sum concerned in a fix.
