bootloaders are also different story ... each and every device these days has a private key as i said earlier this key gets checked before booting by something in chipset (hardware side) and if key mismatch the device will enter a qcom mode for debugging etcetcetcetc........

trust me you don't want to brick a 600$ for simply to flash a bootloader
Thanks for the info. So here a related question, what would happen if you took an i9295 with 4.2.2 on it and flashed the i537 4.2.2 firmware minus the bootloader? Would it fail to boot due to partitioning or would it work?

hi man i dont think you right because my last phone was xtreamer joyz which is the exact same phone as the newman n2 and i could install both official framewere with no problem and those two phones have the exact same specs and also the i537 and the i9295 so i think it should work just fine.

but my knowelge isnt good as yours so correct me if im wrong here but i think it should work

EDIT: I still asking my question but also joining to Devo7v question about what will happen.

If we get a way of unlocking the bootloader we can do this ... I will explain further ...

A stock Sammy ROM comes in the form of a tar.md5 package the .md5 part holds the signature of Sammy , this signature is a type of code that makes the bootloader understand that this package is a signed one with a Sammy key ... When we take the bootloader out of The package (sbl1.bin , sbl2.bin and sbl3.bin) we have to take other parts such as the rbm after taking these we have to repackage the remaining parts in a new tar package ... After doing this we can sign it with an md5 key but this key will give missmatch errors during flash so we have to get the keys of Sammy ... Even if we find those we will have find away to unlock the bootloader to unlock more things
Respect

Try to remmber that development on xda is not for money or publicty but is for fun !

I have to say that i didn't really understand why i cant install the official samsung i537 over the official samsung i9295 because the both signed by Samsung.

like if i have flashed the i9295 4.2.2 official stock on my i9295 so i can flash the i537 4.4.2 official stock no? they both have the Samsung key no?

So u have a gt-i9295 i thought you have i537 any way that can be possible as i did it already just wait and you will get it ... i have ensured it won't brick any phone but wifi and camera are not working
