This is not about credits or mentions. I don't give much about it. I have nothing in my thread that is originally my work. Nothing i could take credit for except that my thread is very comprehensive and has all necessary warnings and tries to educate people on what they do there.
My thread was created early and for the sole intent of trying to avoid threads like these with half informed stuff which lures people into thinking hboot and firmware flashing was as easy as a ROM flash.
There is one single reason HTC has locked everything but system, recovery and kernel away from us: its plain dangerous and can lead to a non-functional phone (from HTC's perspective a costly warranty nightmare). Fixing is very hard on the M7 as the disassembly is work only pro's can accomplish without damage to the phone. Yet, disassembly is required for jtag repair. It is of utmost importance to educate people on what exactly they do there, how to do it and what to do if things seemingly go wrong.
I also don't mind multiple threads of the same matter, thinking it through. Really not. There is always more and new info available that way.
I just object threads that throw edited hboots at people and say "here flash that and enjoy!" because for the aforementioned reasons, that is just irresponsible and, to play back the ball of the OP, not very intelligent.
I will now drop a report to moderation and ask them to judge whether or not to close this thread down. I am not the judge, i am one of many. I just have my opinion. Maybe i am wrong. I will leave it to those dudes moderating this forum. If they decide to leave it as it is, i will not show up anymore and leave the OP alone.
Actually, i'd appreciate the original poster to work with me to have synergy effects. Every bit of info is helping to make firmware works more secure. HTC does not provide any documentation and the true reverse engineering people like team revolutionary also do not share their findings generously, so if there is another member here with an affinity to look into hboot and firmware stuff, it couldn't be more beneficial if we shared our findings.
