[Q] Changing Bootloader - Discussion - What's the safest way?
Hi guys, I want to change my phone bootloader and also to a friend of mine. But I have some nasty experience with bootloader upgrading so I though that a discussion here would be good, so everyone know what to do in the future.
For example, I use ODIN for firmware upgrades, but as you all know it has a quite big rate of failures, caused by different reasons. On the other hand, we have Heimdall which is supposed to be safer and has more options than ODIN (bootloader flash only and such things).
The point is, while we are in download mode, and the flashing of bootloader fails, after restart... well... there won;t be a start anymore. The phone will be dead. What I was thinking is: what if we don't thick restart on ODIN or Heimdall and if flashing the boot loader fails, the phone will remain in download mode. Couldn't this be the opportunity to try again? After all, all we need is download mode.
We could try second time with Heimdall, or another full firmware with odin... what do you say guys?
Remaining in download mode gives us a second chance to bootloader writing?
Sorry if I've been really fuzzy in my ideas but I'm very sleepy right now.
