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 :: 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 :: 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:
s1tool:

Code:
Welcome to S1 identify tool

[Code] .......

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

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,

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.

Motorola Droid :: Get Bootloader Screen / "SE Flash OMAP3430 MI"

Jun 22, 2010

This so frustrating. I am trying to root my droid that is currently running the 2.1 firmware. I have researched and it seems that the only way to do so is go back to the 2.0.1 firm. So, I download RSD 4.6, the 32-bit 4.2 usb driver zip, the vzw sbf file, and the apk file. Proceed with everything as instructed and the start button on the RSD Lite stays greyed out. I believe because I do not have the "SE Flash OMAP3430 MI" driver on my PC. Does anyone know how I can get past this? Does this "SE Flash OMAP3430 MI" exist somewhere that I can retrieve it? Is there an easier weay to root or change my 2.1 to froyo 2.2?

HTC EVO 4G :: How Could You Possibly Brick An Evo?

Nov 30, 2010

I was just talking to someone about bricking mobile devices and I couldn't even think of how I could accidentally brick my own phone. Couldn't you always just go into recovery and wipe/reflash? Unless there was a way to stop you from getting into recovery but I don't see how.I'm not an expert and I've learned everything I know from reading here and on XDA so I could be missing something.

Android :: Backing Up SMS Periodically (possibly Timestamped)

Dec 18, 2009

I currently use SMS Backup & Restore, but that has two drawbacks I see

-I have to manually initiate the backup
-It only stores and restores one file, so I have to overwrite and rename

I just lost my texts and only had a two day old backup. I'd love to see the same thing but that can do it with a timestamped file such as backup_2009-12-18-15-08.xml (pickable when restoring) and can run at a preset time each day or each half day.

Samsung Captivate :: Possibly Moving From Windows To Android

Jul 29, 2010

I presently have a windows 6.0 phone, an older htc fuze on at&t. it's getting long in the tooth and a little quirky so I'm looking to upgrade.I saw the captivate appear a few days ago on at&t's website and did some research on it. Although it has a few potential problems, I don't think they outweigh the pluses.What I'm really concerned about is I have quite a few Excel spreadsheets and Word docs on the fuze storage card that I would like to be able to continue to use on the captivate.Is this possible?Keeping in mind that I do not have to upgrade now, does the forum think it would be better to wait until the at&t captivates ship with 2.2 or go ahead and get a 2.1 unit now and do the android upgrade later?Or is the 2.2 release date still to iffy to wait?
