Yes there is something wrong. That 179 counts the days that your device will eventually get bricked, it counts down to 0 then boom, you're officially ****ed.




























Actually im just trolling :P No there is nothing wrong, its just the hex address of the specific block in which the boot image is written on the internal memory of the phone. :P
Device: Xperia SP
Kernel: Stock CWM Enabled

Depends on kernel, but mostly should stay same addresses.
Don't worry, if it is different, nothing bad will happen.

I think its based upon the kernel. CM kernels might have a different address shown on there, Stock ones a different address and so on.

All these are speculations ofcourse, its what i make out of the lines. Its nothing to worry about :P

That address was absolute kernel blocks address.
0x00000148 - 0x00000179 = 32 blocks
1 block = 256KB
So kernel partition size :
32 x 256KB = 8192KB

Your device will doomed if you have alot of bad block.
