Wow, cool tool! No difference in the outcome though, screen goes black for a few seconds and then the phone reboots.

So.... We've got to basically the same point I got to, using basically the same technique. What's next? I've done a fair amount of googleing I can't find anything on debuging initrc issues.

Does anyone know of any methods to see where/what in the boot-scripts is failing so that we can fix?

hi,

It's very quiet here. Is this a bad sign? Just wondering.

Yep. It is... Basically I failed, then grarak failed, and what we need now is someone with the knowledge/experience to sus out why it won't boot. I've ran out of ideas.

Default Bounty?

My thinking is that all we need is one good ROM for this phone. Maybe we could get a bounty started for the first dev with a stable port of any of the popular ROMs. That might get some interest. I don't know if bounties are still allowed, but i'd be willing to put in at least $20. If a MOD could let me know, i'll start a thread.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-900T
Bought on Swappa, Blocked by T-Mobile
Given life again via Chainfire's RegionLock Away

Hyperdrive KK RLS3.1
Effortless ROM Rev 6

ROM: Back to Stock

Hi m8, I'd happily contribute to a bounty too. I've tried and failed myself so it's going to need somebody who has done it before. I'll match your $20.

Sent from some dark corner of my imagination from my Mega (or) Note.

Whats with talk about needing a custom rom? The stock one is perfectly fine. Dont like the TW interface, use a different launcher. Feel that the stock rom lags, use a debloated stock rom. Be glad everything works unlike on the custom roms. I love custom roms on my note 2 but I would always be flashing because everything was a work in progress. Sides, I mainly use them mostly because I can turn down the dpi down to 240. But now that the mega is already at 240, I can learn to use the phone again instead of using a custom rom and sacrificing this or that feature. By the time the features come in, its already time to be upgrading your phone which you never got to fully use because you were waiting for the next big release of <insert custom rom name>.
