General :: HUAWEI Ascend Y300 - Flash Recovery With Locked Bootloader

May 29, 2013

Are there other ways to flash a recovery with a locked bootloader?

My Problems:

I can't flash my stock recovery through fastboot with a locked bootloader.
I can't boot into my recovery because my current recovery is TWRP 2.5.0.1 and I have a locked bootloader.
I can't unlock my bootloader because I have used an IMEI Hack Tool and set my IMEI to 0 (I guess).
I can't boot into my ROM because I used an IMEI Hack Tool.
I can't Force Upgrade too (Vol Up + Down + Power). It only shows a pink/purple screen.

Solutions:

I can only flash a recovery with an unlocked bootloader.
I can only boot into a recovery with an unlocked bootloader (except for stock).
I can only unlock bootloader if my IMEI has restored.
I can only restore my IMEI if I can boot into my ROM.
I can only boot into my ROM if I have a stock recovery.
I can only Force Upgrade if I have restored my IMEI.

If I could only restore my IMEI through fastboot,

General :: Nexus 7 Rooted But Cannot Flash Custom ROM

Mar 17, 2013

I used mskip's toolkit to root my device, which succeeded, but I am unable to flash a custom rom. I've tried to flash 2 different versions of paranoid android, using cwm recovery, but I get the following error :

'assert failed: getprop("ro. build. product. device")...
E: Error in /sdcard/0/download/pa_grouper...
(Status 7)

BTW, I had no problems flashing pa to my Nexus 4&10 and loving that rom.

General :: Android On Acer Iconia W3 / Bootloader Is Locked

May 19, 2014

it is possible to make Android and Windows dualboot or not. The Acer Support told me that the bootloader is locked, so it is impossible to install it without hacking. So what I want to know is how I can hack the UEFI? I like Windows,but only for school or homework. I need Android aswell...

General :: What Is Restricted With Locked Bootloader

Apr 7, 2013

What exactly am I blocked from doing with a locked boot loader? There aren't too many roms out there for my Stellar... I figure I'd try to port one from an SIII... but with the seller's locked boot loader could I even get that far? Or is it stock Verizon roms or nothing? SCH-I200

General :: Ainol Novo 9 Spark Locked Bootloader On Paranoid Android 3+?

Jun 23, 2013

I have installed the paranoid android 3+ rom but now I cannot access TWRP or the bootloader screen. Android boots normally and the tablet is perfectly functional. When the tablet is off, there is no way to get to TWRP using the keys (power on with Vol- pressed etc. I have used all possible combinations). Also, there is no option to boot into recovery mode from the menu in "Backup & reset". Also, when I try to boot into recovery through a terminal emulator it again boots into andoid normally as if I just did a normal reboot. The "reboot recovery" command issued from the terminal emulator does not boot into TWRP. Trying to boot into recovery mode from within Phoenix Suite again boots the machine normally rather than in recovery mode. It's driving me nuts. Could it be a corrupt/locked bootloader? Is it something else? It seems to me that the only possible path for the bootloader is to load Android.

Is there any way to blind flash the bootloader again? It seems that this is the culprit since I can copy TWRP to nandg through the terminal emulator ("cat /extsd/recovery.img > /dev/block/nandg; sync; sync ;sync" but then again rebooting goes into android rather than recovery mode.

The tablet connects normally through USB to my PC and adb sees it properly.

General :: Does Locked Bootloader Prevents From HARD-BRICK

Jul 7, 2012

is locked bootloader going to prevent hard brick? I want to flash some roms (stock kernel) but i am afraid of hard bricking it. There are a lot of people who say the only problem with locked bootloader could be just to soft brick it then just flash a stock rom and everything is fixed. Also what could happen if during the flash process i get a power off? NOTE: i have no recovery on my phone. My phone is Xperia Neo V -the best-

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Flash Custom ROM / If Are Rooted With Unrevoked 3

Aug 4, 2010

I havent seen a thread on this yet, and im sure this will help those of you wanting to flash a custom ROM (even a rooted version of Froyo!)after rooting your phone with unrevoked 3.1

Step ONE:
The first thing to do is to download and install Titanium Backup from the market, and backup all of your apps and user data.Once this is done, shut your phone off.

STEP TWO:
Press and hold your volume up button. then press and release your power key while continuing to hold your volume up button.

Your phone will boot into a white background menu that has green text at the top, followed by FASTBOOT highlighted in red, followed by text in orange, then 4 options. You can release your volume up key once this menu is up.

General :: Root Without Bootloader Flash?

Jul 28, 2012

Now that the mempodroid hack based on the memory leak discovered by Aedla has been blocked (since about kernel 2.6.42, and android 4.0.3), are there any remaining ways of getting root access without re-flashing the bootloader? Alternatively, any pointers to how I would find (or build) a bootloader for a tablet based on rockchip RK29 board (for which I'm unlikely to be able to get detailed documentation)? Or is there any way to downgrade the kernel without root access?

General :: S3 - Possibly Tried To Flash ROM Without Bootloader?

Mar 6, 2013

I rooted my S3 a few months ago based on some detailed instructions found online - no issues. The method used involved clockwork mod or some such.I was following these URL....

instructions to attempt to install liquid smooth (URL...) ROM. I had backed up everything on titanium backup and using the back up in ROM manager. In step 3.1, "flash a recovery image," I didn't think I needed to do this, as I thought it was a part of ROM manager.I proceeded onward, and after the phone finished making a back up, immediately after it started to install the new ROM, the screen went black (I assume the phone turned off).

I'm currently unable to get it to turn on at all, taking the battery out didn't do anything, and when I plug it into the comp via USB, it doesn't seem to recognize the device.I'm a broke med student on loans, and a new phone is going to hurt the bank account a lot.

General :: Can Recovery Flash Bootloader?

Jan 28, 2014

1. Can recovery flash bootloader?

From this link====>[URL] ....., I think it can do that. But I'm not sure.

2. Can recovery flash recovery partition itself?

I think it can not do this. Not confirm that.

3. We know in update.zip, boot.img is corresponding boot partition, but why system is a folder, not system.img? There is a system partition also.

4. While OTA upgrade system, why the update package downloaded under /cache path? Can we change it to sdcard?

5. Most important, what exactly update-script do things under recovery mode? How the command executed?

BTW, there are other questions, but not related to Recovery Mode.

1. How can I see the flash partitions? I know to use the command cat /proc/mtd, but as Samsung, it use emmc flash, while I type that command, no results printed. How to see?

2. About userdata partition, we know that when first run android OS, system will copy files from /system to /data, but does it do it every time that we turn on the phone or just do it once after the first booting after we update our system?

General :: Flash New Bootloader Through CWM / TWRP Recovery?

Feb 5, 2014

I have an AT&T SGS4 with a melted USB port so there is no way for me to use fastboot or Odin to flash bootloaders, etc. Is it possible to flash a Samsung factory bootloader through recovery?

What I am trying to accomplish:

I am on Touchwiz 4.3 and the 4.4.2 KK release was leaked in our forum. I used the dsixda kitchen to break it down and made a ROM out of it that successfully flashed in recovery but kernel panics at the AT&T splash boot screen because the RAMdisk doesn't match the bootloader version. So I need to upgrade the bootloader to the 4.4.2 version so it will boot.

I unpacked the RAMdisk and there is nothing in any of the init.xx files that points to the bootloader. I even used a hex editor to look at the init binary which references the bootloader but there was nothing in there that I could change (from what I saw).

General :: Bootloader Doesn't Exist On Nand / EMMC Flash

Jan 23, 2014

I have a phone called Y9190 that suddenly turned off and will not turn back on. I tried to flash it with flashtool, but the program sends me this error:

"Boot Loader does not exist on NAND / eMMC flash! Please download bootloader first."

At this point, I do not know how to go forward. The flashtool drivers are installed correctly and the rom is the right one.

General :: Can't Flash Kernel / Unlocking Bootloader - Xperia X10 Mini (E10a)

Feb 7, 2012

My android is rooted and sim-unlocked by Omnius.

I manually installed ClockworkMod Recovery. (to do this I had to remount the /system folder as rw, don't know if this is important, but wasn't in the installation instructions).

PC companion says my firmware is the lastest

I want flash this kernel. I think I can't unlock my bootloader...

I followed this guide to unlock the bootloader, using FlashTool or msm7227_omniusSL.cmd. Both processes complete without errors... But when I check with s1tool, the erom version has an uppercase "R".

When I try to flash, FlashTool throws the error:

Code:
06/056/2012 20:56:22 - ERROR - ERR_SEVERITY="MAJOR";ERR_CLASS="SECURITY_CLASS";ERR_DYNAMIC="SIN header verification failed"

Here are my s1tool and FlashTool logs:

Both BL unlocking methods were repeted several times, with equal logs...

General :: Flash Gapps - Rooted But No Recovery?

Jun 26, 2012

I have been lucky enough to been given a Huawei P1 and a P1 XL.

I have managed to root it successfully which is great but the rom on both does not come with Google Apps Suite.

I know it's possible to flash the gapps once rooted and you have a recovery on Huawei's as I have done this on my honour.

The Chinese recovery available for P1 doesn't work on my P1 or XL.

Is there any way to flash the gapps packaged without a recovery or to do it manually?

General :: Android Shows Custom Boot Menu As If Rooted?

Mar 22, 2014

I have a Samsung S4 - US Verizon - SCH-i545 Build VRUEMK2. It is currently on version 4.3. I've done some research on rooting my device recently but have not gone through with the procedure. In my research, I've read that once you root your device the boot menu will come up with an unlocked deadbolt symbol and a message that reads something about a Custom Rom.

What's tripping me out is that recently I started my phone and it shows the Custom with unlocked deadbolt on screen, but I have NOT rooted my device. What the heck is going on? Could my equipment be compromised? Are there known apps that would change the boot menu on the S4.... I'm at a loss here and whenever I google this I just find instructions for rooting...

General :: HKV Android Tablet - Flash Custom Recovery?

Mar 13, 2013

I just purchased a cheap 9.7" Android Tablet, Model AM09-D2. It came with ICS 4.0.4, has 16Gb ram and a dual core Cortex A9 CPU. I would like to know how I go about backing this thing up. It is rooted and has absolutely no blootwear installed. Is it possible to flash a custom recovery. Like TWRP or CWM to save a image of the rom. I have already did a data and app backup with Mybackup Pro. Now I would like to backup the Rom and maybe do dump. Is it possible and if so how? Not really that comfortable with ADB/fastboot, truthfully I don't understand what the difference is. I already have drivers setup for Samsung Galaxy Nexus on my Win 8 notebook. Will installing ADB/fastboot screw things up?

Motorola Droid : Flash SBF Files - 2.0.1 Stock That Replace Bootloader?

Jun 9, 2010

I know I've been posting lots of noob questions today, but I am a noob to rooting and I'm trying to get everything straightened out.

When I flash an sbf file, particularly the one that returns to 2.0.1 stock, does that replace 1) the kernel, 2) bootloader, 3)baseband, and anything else I can't think of? lol

I just like to have a backup plan incase something goes terribly wrong and I'm hoping that the .sbf file will replace every single component on my droid so I can start fresh if need be.
