i9305 bootloader
Does anyone know where to go for a list of i9305 (LTE) bootloaders? Can't see them anywhere.

If you cant find any thread then u must do it yourself, believe me it is very easy just put some 5 minutes to read instruction, and you will do it by yourself, you can even make thread in i9305 section

p.s actually i could write the instruction in 4 sentences, but i decided to write the instruction in detail so users do it without any question...

Hi, Thanks for your detailed instructions on making the bootloader files. It's exactly what I needed to learn to do for my Tab s T700.

A question. I have just rooted this with Kingroot and had to downgrade from Kitkat ANL1 down to ANF7.
After rooting and keeping knox 0x0 I am left with the firmware back at ANL1 and the bootloader at ANF7. So to complete I was hoping to upgrade the bootloader back to ANL1.

Do you think this will be a problem in any way? I'm hoping that by returning to the correct bootloader to match the firmware there shouldn't be any danger.

Happy that my instructions helped you,

In answering to your question, i haven't downgraded my bootloader on any of my devices, never take that risk,

although in theory it has to work ONLY IF both bootloaders are for the same firmware, for example in your case both ANL1 and ANF7 are 4.4.2 so i think it might work but im not sure.

I am 90% sure that it is not going to work if you had new lollipop bootloader and you want to downgrade to kitkat.

And finally why do you want to match bootloader versions anyway? It is always good to have latest bootloader (recommended), newer bootloaders are always backward compatible, meaning that if you have kitkat bootloader you cant install lollipop rom(actually you can but phone wont boot to rom) but if you have lollipop bootloader you can install kitkat rom, got it?

Well no I have an older bootloader than the firmware. It's the other way around.
I used this method:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...itkat-t3129484

So I didn't downgrade the bootloader I downgraded the whole rom to ANF7. But in rooting it required that I use Flashfire to install ANL1 afterwards. Flashfire (mobile odin) doesn't flash bootloaders so I retained the old one.

So I'm hoping I can flash the newer ANL1 bootloader to make it match.
If there's a risk I could re-do this an maybe by installing ANL1 and then flashfire ANL1 again after but the whole point of downgrading was because Kingroot 4.1 isn't able to root newer roms and I would try 4.5 but I don't know if it will work.

Edit : I flashed ANL1 no problems only the CSC is blank now but I think it's fine. Thanks again for your nice tool
