Nope sorry. Mj6 will trip the counter. You can still try installing from sammobile and dont root it.

That's right, but try to root it.... You now have the new bootloaders that trip when you root, and if something goes wrong forget using Kies 3 to fix as the newest firmware Malaysia has to date is MJ1, the old bootloader.... Welcome to bootloopssville, population - You....

I don't know about the branded version, but I succeeded in flashing MJ6-BTU on my french XEF phone. Root is working - Knox is 0x0.

Universal RDLV is able to create the system.img.ext4 and cache.img.ext4 files, but you have to include some other files from the Samsung tar.md5 file or camera and WLAN will be broken. DO NOT include the *.mbn files - DO NOT include the unmodified system.img.ext4 - this would result in Knox 0x1.

Hello do you flash a rdlv version or a non modified one?

The safest way to go up (providing you currently have nothing higher than MJ1), is to create a URDLV Firmware, to keep the old boot loader.

Then flash the modem and NON-HLOS file from the original Samsung tar file.

You flash a RDLV version, but you have to add some additional files from the Samsung firmware. At least you have to add NON-HLOS and modem, but in my case this wasn't enough, so I built a new .tar.md5 file with almost everything. The only files I didn't include were the *.mbn files. System+Cache from the RDLV tar.md5, the rest from the Samsung tar.md5 file.

You will understand how to create your UK MJ7 firmware unbranded and rooted. Don't flash a newer firmware than MJ1 to keep the old bootloader and don't use kingoapp or vroot .... They use an exploit which won't exist anymore when samsung will decide it ! You will be happy to have the old bootloader at this moment ...

Thank you, i understand that it's important tout keep the old bootloader. So my iinterrogation is about i update my mi7 directly to rdlv mj7 or i update first to mj1 and after to mj7.

Bootloader on mi7 and mj1 is the same?
