[Q] Fastboot woes with i9505G
Ive got an i9505G and Ive already done "fastboot oem unlock" to unlock the bootloader. I'm able to "fastboot boot recovery.img" using clockworkmod-touch recovery image. However, I am unable to boot even the stock boot.img with "fastboot boot ...". It appears to try and do it, but the transfer happens really fast, and then the phone just hangs there forever.
$ fastboot boot /home/j/android/galaxy_s4_ge/boot.img.stock
OKAY [ 0.568s]
OKAY [ 0.019s]
finished. total time: 0.587s
My boot.img matches the one which is only the phone and boots up fine.
# md5sum `pwd`/boot
$ md5sum /home/j/android/galaxy_s4_ge/boot.img.stock
Is there some trickery needed to get fastboot to launch the stock boot.img? Or is everybody just flashing the kernel and booting it to test it and then using recovery to fix it after testing?
