Hello everyone,

I was wondering if there was a way to flash aboot.mbn to the aboot partition.
I have tried Heimdall however it does not seem to be compatible with the s5 yet and odin v3.09 and v1.85 also gives me problems and thus far have been unable to flash it. I have also tried the dd command from and android terminal emulator
Code:
dd if=/storage/extSdCard/aboot.mbn of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6
which also did not work and i do not believe that mobile odin can flash aboot either.

So my question is is there any other way to flash aboot or am i stuck until heimdall updates compatibility?
i am on G900T s5.

Thank You.

I tried but i do not think that samsung adds support for fastboot at all since the use their own download mode for odin and stuff

No for whatever reason odin fails to flash when i package aboot.

i package it as a tar with 7zip, just aboot.mbn file nothing special and no special settings, or am i missing something that odin needs?

Odin doesn't flash zip file bro

Why not using Odin to flash your complete stock firmware?
