What version of 4EXT have you used to try this? You tried what hasoon suggested (rebooting to bootloader after flashing rom and using the kernel flasher from PC)? What kind of "wire" did you use when getting S-OFF?

what kind of wire did you use? if it was un-insulated you could have shorted the phone...


also, didnt you say you formatted the partitions? could you have scrambled the partiton tables?

Insulated wire. The phone booted up fine after the process. Used it for an hour or so. After that went to instal another rom and now nothing will work. I appreciate the feedback, but I have tried everything that has been mentioned before I started posting. Tried every recovery, every rom, tried flashing from adb, flashing from amaze tool with different recoverys and different kernels, wiping and rebooting between each. Going to bed now. I think my amaze days are over been nothing but a hassle. On the bright side my phone is S-OFF....lmfao

Where are you guys getting the wire to do this from? Just a normal speaker wire or another place?

20 awg solid core wire you can get from home depot ( doorbell wire) . cut a long piece so you have about 6 inches and you can do it easy.

Yeah I just used some wire cutters and clipped a few inches off the end of a speaker wire.
