Oh, by the way, what does S-on prevents us to do? Since we can flash boot.img, the only thing I've seen so far that isn't doable without it is changing the splash boot screen.
I mean, it would allow us to skip a few steps, but besides that, is there a real benefit I don't see?
That, I already know, I use Google too ^^
But as of now, we can already do all this, or almost all. We can't change splash boot image or access every partition on the fly, but that's it.
So the question I ask is what would it bring us that we don't already have?
Apart from ease of use and full access to the phone's internal memory (which is rather a Dev feature), I don't see much point in going S-Off.
An example of what it would allow us to do, from an end-user point of view, would be appreciated
Sorry for going off topic here.
Furthermore, S-OFF also reduces restrictions on accessing the NAND flash memory on the device, allowing all partitions (including /system) to be mounted in write mode while the operating system is booted.
Yeah that was a part i forgot to add, I understood that it would allow us to flash boot.img through recovery (and if understand well, we could even flash it whenever we want?), but since we already have a workaround for that (using fastboot flash boot boot.img) it is not a "new" feature that S-off would allow, just an easier way to do what we already do today.
Hence my question, what would it allow us to do that we can't already do, even with such workarounds?
I'm asking because it seems really weird to me that so much people are investing so much time in getting S-Off if it doesn't allow new and unseen features.
But maybe we shouldn't post too much about this here, let's keep on topic
