Running from SD card
I managed to damage my i9300 board so that now, even without a short on the resistor, my phone skips the eMMC and goes directly to the SD card.
The damage happened when I tried to revive it from the "SDS" state, and used the Samsung service center solution.
I now get 3 lines of texts saying its tries to copy the sloader to the eMMC and fails (because my eMMC is now officially dead)
Can I ran the whole system from SD?
I imagine that my IEMI is lost, so it will never work as a phone, but a nice media player or a development platform could be useful.
I don't know much about this, but my guess is that if I can partition the SD the same way the eMMC is partitioned, and put everything on it - it should run.
I have a version of ODIN, that has a "t-flash" option, and I have a working i9300.
How do you suggest I go about making a "bootable" SD card?
and even more important - how do I protect my working i9300 from being bricked while I try this...? (If you have a solution that does not involve it - it will be the preferred one!)
