I was flashing rage kernel v2.6 on my st15i. The screenshot below has this S1 partID......... which i pointed out. Does this mean there is something wrong with my ST15i. I'm not new to flashing kernels and roms. Please clarify.

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

So every time I flash a kernel different addresses are used OR a particular kernel uses only particular address ???

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.
