DONATE TO ME
s-off :

-Downgrade/upgrade the hboot
-Return to stock including locked bootloader is easier for warranty
-no more boot.img flash needed when changing roms
-flash recoveries from within the recovery with a zip file
-flash any firmware from all regions (like a wwe version on a honkong version)
