I mean don't get me wrong I love all the devs and very much appreciate all there hard work but how come we haven't figured it out yet? who knows maybe by posting this, one of the devs will look this up and realize that they know this person and they will work together to help out our community for free because I know im not paying 50 bucks for that! Thanks!
The service you are referring to (provided by mobiletechvideos.com
) is not a simple software hack, but rather a full-scale hardware hack. That means taking your device apart and messing with the internal hardware. It involves taking your eMMC chip off the main board, reprogramming it, and soldering it back on. It is not DIY.
