I have a question regarding Mike's post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2182823
I am currently S-on and I have UNLOCKED and *TAMPERED* in my bootloader. My software version is 188.8.131.52 and the phone is locked to O2 UK (CID O2_001). My hboot version is 1.54
What are the implications of me flashing the x.xx.206.x firmware version in Mike's post? The CID and MID of my phone match the firmware. WIll this entirely brick the phone as soon as it is booted up?
I have a nandriod version of JB 4.1.2 for O2 (not sure of the version, think it was 184.108.40.206). If I flashed that, say, then flashed the firmware and carried on with my OTA's will this by any chance a) brick the phone, rendering it a very useful hat weight, or b) remove the *TAMPERED* message from the bootloader?
Or, in fact, is there even any way to remove that dreadful tampered message from the bootloader without a RUU?
