Cnexus - any idea why yours is much smaller?
80mb vs 128mb
The 80mb file is about the same size as pre 4.3 images.

If the bootloader gets corrupted on the Galaxy SIII, you can flash the image file to an SD card and get the phone to boot from a fully bricked state (phone will not power on at all). The image file must match the current bootloader that is installed. There are other threads here for previous builds with the matching image files.

(If I got something a little wrong in terminology or concept, I'm sure someone will pop in and fix anything I got mixed up on explaining. )

Him or me?
Unfortunately, my phone hard bricked during some testing of ND8 and now it's a paperweight as I haven't been able to get it back. I'm sure we'll see more of this going forward. I bet there were a few when 4.3 came along as well but we weren't around for that release here.
Looks like Jtag for this phone and I haven't decided what to do in the meantime to replace it; temporarily or permanently.

Ha. He hasn't put on his cape yet. It will be exciting around here once he does.
