Wow, I think I've read about 20 threads so far about this, and this is the first time I've seen this corrected... Lots of threads always mentioned locking the bootloader as the issue if you don't have stock hboot.
I actually had a few questions about this,
1. Does the hboot version have to match that of the firmware ? ( 1.54 for 2.24.x.x for example ?) or does it simply have to be any stock hboot ?
2. Are there any differences between hboot for various carriers ?
3. I've read multiple times that running an RUU will not allow you to downgrade unless you have superCID, I don't understand this. I thought the RUU wouldn't run if the CID didn't match. From what I had understood previous to reading that is simply that an RUU cannot be used to downgrade the firmware or the hboot version, that can only be done manually with S-off
Thank you for your time and for the clarification!
