dla5244,

Although this is slightly off-topic, I thought I would ask here instead of a pm:

1) Do you know how to dump the bootloader from a Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

2) Have you seen an engineering bootloader for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

3) Will your exploit (i.e., the go.lol exploit) allow flashing of a custom bootloader on a Galaxy Nexus?

Thanks.
At present, I am not readily available on the forums or via PM -- if you are in need of a moderator, please contact someone from this list.

I do NOT answer technical questions via PM. Post in a thread.

Tip: How to install Blackrose custom Hboot to your Nexus One on Mac:
1. Install rEFIt
2. Reboot Mac two times
3. Use Unetbootin to create linux live usb, I use Parted Magic
4. Unpack Blackrose folder to the same Usb flash
5. Reboot Mac, choose Boot from Linux, what linux to boot
6. Use Disk Mount tool to mount USB flash drive
7. Start console, then mc, and then start blackrose installer from usb flash in /media/

1.You need to dump nand flash(start at 0x0 ~ ?)
0x0 is x-loader
offset end of x-loader is SBL

2.No.

3.I don't know, because i didn't disassemble Galaxy Nexus bootloder

I think Galaxy Nexus(OMAP4460) boot process is
Device Bootloader -> x-loader -> Second Bootloader(called bootloader) -> Kernel
If x-loader is signed itself and authenticate Second Bootloader at boot process, you can't boot custom bootloader until bypass TI secureboot chain

maybe bootloader.img is x-loader + Second Bootloader + etc

Thanks, but what is the command to dump? I would like to have an image of my current bootloader.

When I wanted to update from 111208_3 to 111217 I first did:

- Edit blackrose to 150-5-281
- No password protection or anything
- Flashed hboot_brcust.nb0

Then flashed it on my phone, cleaned cache etc as usual and rebooted and got stuck on the X screen. I never had any issues before updating blackrose...



The very ONLY difference I did was set cache partition to 5, usually I took 60, so with cache partition set to 5 not working I decided to try again with cache set to 60 like I always did but this is ALSO not working. So now I can't use my phone anymore and decided to switch back to the old 111208_3 version, which to my surprise ALSO doesn't work. Now I'm totally lost again. Please advice.

Mine hung on X too, I just pulled battery and ok

I am running texasice ics atm

My procedure was to execute the new br installer and install it thru command window as usual--reboot bootloader

it still showed the older br that was on phone with ics

I then took the hboot_blackrose.nb0 from new br binary--resized with splhexeditor to the ics sizes 220/16/200, saved and copied to tools and flashed

rebooted bootloader and had the new br with my correct sizes

I think the last reboot was were it hung, just pulled battery and all is well

You could try flashing the stock nb0 in binary and wiping and installing a fresh rom like cm7

You are juste using a live linux to use Linux Blackrose installer ?

I'm sure we can make a script to flash this directly on macosx as it's an UNIX os

I also flashed the STOCK blackrose, which also didn't boot my ROM. I can paste here what I can see in the commandprompt after doing this:

Code:
Select Code
- fastboot flash hboot hboot_brcust.nb0
- fastboot erase cache
- fastboot oem brcmd brec
then my phone reboots into recovery BUT with the following lines in commandprompt:

Code:
Select Code
INFO0
INFO0
INFO0

INFOjump_to_kernel: machine_id(2304), tags_addr(0x20000100), ker

C:\Android\blackrose_111217\binary>
Seems like he's unable to read something from kernel? Can you please advice dla5244? I really don't want to wipe /system & /data as I just completely reinstalled everything and configured etc.

well, I guess what I was saying was to flash a new rom, not your existing one after flashing the stock blackrose and wiping all including system 3X before flashing rom

check the stock blackrose with splhexeditor for correct sizes before fastboot flashing it--145/95/186

I found why occur this problem.
problem is BlackRose Editor(total partition size - 2)
I will release fix version soon.
I really sorry...

Edit: Fixed
Unfortunately, once you faced stuck X screen caused by wrong partition
You need to full wipe.

if you reinstall rom(full wipe) on Custom Partition BlackRose 111217,
you need to backup and restore all when you upgrade 111217_2
