[Q] Unlocking Bootloader
Got a question about unlocking bootloader and the current state of my phone:
First up, this is the current state of my phone:
- Bootloader locked
- Dual Recovery installed (??)
- RomAur 4 installed
So basically the state of my phone is that I followed to guide in the RomAur post to install their ROM.
When I reboot my phone I get the extra buzz so I can hold Vol up/down to enter recovery.
I have root, but the sys partition is not mountable as R/W in RomAur 4 but I can flash zips in recovery.
I want to install iHackers v2 ROM and maybe also unlock bootloader as it seems all camera issues have been sorted (correct me if I'm wrong) (are there are reasons I should/shouldn't unlock the bootloader?).
What do I have to do to go from RomAur 4 to iHackers 2.0 with the current state of my phone? Should I bother unlocking bootloader to use a 3rd party kernel?
Are [nandroid] backups done in CWM any use at all as it seems that when flashing a ROM you then have to use flashtool to flash a kernel and radio so I'm guessing that the backups wont be able to restore these either?
Thanks for all the help and bloody hard work you guys put into developing for our phones.
