It's nearly 11 months since the last update v1.2. Now I will introduce the new version of Myth Tools with a big improvement.
Thanks to all your comments which helps me to complete the features of Myth Tools. All feedbacks are always welcome.

Please read instruction carefully before using. Thank you.

I am not very familiar with Myth Tools but my #1 rule when it comes to XDA is "Read Everything" and this is the very first thing on their thread, it says, "BE SURE YOU ARE UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER BEFORE FLASHING..." -- It really can't be much more explicit than that.

With regards to saving your device, my recommendation would be to try to unlock your bootloader if you still can. If you're able to boot to the bootloader (from powered-off state hold down power+vol up+vol down) then you may be able to salvage the device. Make sure you read all of the instructions that come with the unlocking tool because when it comes to these types of tools, it is very important that you educate yourself before you go and fiddle around with the software because if you don't know what you're doing, it's very easy to end up with a brick on your hands. I'm very sorry that you had to learn that the hard way (we've all been there) but I'm sure it will be a valuable lesson that you take with you for next time. Here is the link to the bootloader unlocking tool: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2226504

Feel free to PM me if you need help and I will do my best to answer any questions that you have, or you can ask your questions right here in this thread!
