SuperCID allows the flashing of any ROM regardless of the carrier it was meant for (special access) and it also allows for the writing of Ext_ROM (special access, again - see CID LOCK
No supercid is just a generic cid.
It has no hardware advantage over a stock cid. It's mainly used for unbranding.
I always have my devices on stock hboot and stock cid. Only s-off is what I want.
Haven't found anything I couldn't flash.
Like your link says VENDERLOCK thus software.
It's the unlock (xda-dev) part that provides the access of certain partitions.
With s-off even more is available.
S-off and hboot have no direct relation.
Example: Lower stock hboots can flash radio with only a unlocked device. Higher can't.
What's the difference a device unlocked supercid and a device unlocked unbranded cid. ?
Is there any rom custom that can't be flashed with just unlocking,
Lets make it supercid can I flash more roms?
Its just an coincidence that with the newer devices supercid was needed for getting s-off. It didn't used to be that way.
Hell easy unlocking didn't even exist.
It was s-off or bust mostly.
The link you give is not that clear.
ext_rom have you read there description?
I don't think that's a really secured partition. Do you?
Typing on a phone is fukd if it gets to big.
