    Loly is saying to upload to a host site the copies of both original US & original ID fw versions that you used to make the hybrid fw flashed to your unit. You can use ZippyShare or 1fichier for example to upload, or just tell us the version of US HWID 1582 boot.bin used and give us a link to the ID fw from which you've extract fw_all.bin.

    You could also try this, load your complete original US fw to updater.exe and leave it open and visible on your desktop with the radio button selected next to 'USB Device'. Plug a usb lead into a rear port on your PC [but not to unit yet]. Hold the upper left corner of the screen firmly and hold down the power button then connecting the usb to the unit. Hold power button for at least 30 seconds or as long as possible, if unit powers on release power button and press 'OK' on updater.exe immediately after you see your unit's detail appear in the window adjacent to 'USB Device' while continuing to hold the screen until update process finishes.

    If that doesn't work you could try opening the unit to disconnect the battery for a while before trying again to flash original US fw.

    I tried to re-flash original FW follow your method by
    1. Prepare original FW by drag to updater.exe then select USB Device
    2. Hold the upper left corner of the screen firmly and Hold power button for at least 30 seconds or as long as possible, Result==> can't turn on unit(also USB can't detect USB device)
    3. Open unit and disconnect Battery(wait 3-10min) then try again follow item no#2, Result ==> can't turn on unit(also USB can't detect USB device)
    4. Tried no#1-3 again result still can't turn on unit.
    Could you suggest me again for next action for repair it? (i have the knowledge about electronic circuit)

    Does your device not turn on at all ?
    Does it turn on when you plug in a usb cable ?
    Does it turn on when you press the power button ?
    Switch off all lights to look for a glow on touch screen.
