Info 2 donate

I'm ready to donate about 20$ for rooting and 30$ for bootloader unlock way.

a bit of offtop:
i researching how to hack bootloader and find a way how to put our device into low-level pre-bootloader mode. In this mode you cat flash Blank Boot by special qualcomm utility.
Also, i find the same theme at xda here
and found interesting information how to change values into protected memory blocks to remove validation of firmware parts - by JTAG.
If somebody wants to know about it, i'll share this information.
But i think - it's terrible, very dangerous way even trying to unlock this method. But, as i think - it's 100% working, 'cause it program into low-level mode, like at the factory.

Since I had to pay for a service to get root, I'm going to withdraw my bounty contribution here.

I'll withdraw my $50 from the bounty, I've unlocked my bootloader and am trying to assist others who wish to do the same. I just ran into some significant, unexpected expenses, and every dollar will count for the next few months.

Thread cleaned.

I have deleted everything not directly related to the bounty, we'll want to keep stuff involving amounts of money like this transparent and uncluttered. If you want to discuss something not directly related to the bounty, i.e. something not about adding or revoking your contribution, do it in one of the many discussion threads. Let's keep this thread on rails, people.

Please withdraw my $100 towards the bounty (note that my post to bump from $50 to $100 got deleted).

For me, there was a lot of interesting stuff going on in this thread (~66 pages worth), which I have been monitoring at least daily since it was created. While the reasoning and work behind cleaning up a thread is admirable, much of the information that is now lost does not exist elsewhere. I suppose people (myself not excluded) who post interesting things slightly off-topic are to blame, but the primary reason I want to withdraw my bounty is because I no longer wish to monitor this thread if it's just going to be about the money and not the status of getting root on our devices. If I had any value to add to the root discussion, I'd create such a thread myself.
