Opened my K3. Pulled out battery, fired up ATK, connected the K3 and held down - volume. ATK says "No USB detected. Please check your USB...."
I put back the battery, fire up ATK, (first screen imx, mmdr, usb, click next)
plug in K3,(I hear device mounting), slide power, wait till orange comes out, press -volume for 1 sec (sound from computer again), slide back power 1 sec (hear sound again), release -volume.
second window: Click Flash tool. Click Go.
3rd window: mmc/sd, program, 0x0, partitiontable-header-uboot.bin, click PROGRAM:
Failed to initial flash or Do not support this Flash, please reset the target
After a few minutes, I hear it unmounting and mounting again and then again, and then again. LOL.
