flash the v188.8.131.52 blob.EBT (using the "nvflash -r download 5 blob.EBT" command) but doesn't appear to be taking (WW SKU displayed matches one from AndroidRoot,
not the US SKU from the blob I'm trying to flash). Also downgraded to v184.108.40.206 as a test and all but the bootloader were updated. Same - has a US SKU, but still a
WW bootloader displays...
Without fastboot, can I use "nvflash -r --download 13 blob.EBT" to get it into staging, reboot and hope it takes? And to make sure staging is clear, is there any problem
doing a format_partition (within nvflash) on it?
Is there a better way that might get it flashed correctly? Would adb work (dd if=/sdcard/blob.ebt of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4) or would I need to have the entire blob as
the input file?
One last resort would be to try flashing the bricksafe.img. Sure wish I knew why I have the nvflash backup files saved in triplicate. Not very useful when I don't know how to use
them to get me back to SOP
