Default [BOOT] [GSM] Insecure boot image for IMM76I

XDA user stesmo has compiled an insecure boot image based off the IMM76I source if any one is interested. Completely stock with ro_secure set to 0.

He asked me if I could post it here given that his post count is not high enough to post in the dev section.

You can download it from this post.

This is NOT my work, so if you've found this image useful, thank stesmo in his post.

What is the difference between a normal secure boot and an insecure one?
I'm only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand.

An insecure boot image enables root access by default on boot.

Root access for what, exactly?

I enables root access for the shell user. When you start ADB and open a shell, you will have root immediately, whether your device is rooted or not. It also allows you to use "adb remount" to mount your system read-write from ADB.

Woops. I didn't see that. I did search, but I searched for "insecure" not "unsecured" . Maybe you should change the word in the title to insecure.

Mods, I see no reason for two threads. This one can be closed.
