[Q] "secondary boot loader" info?
Hi all -
I'm orienting myself to the boot loader on my Intercept in preparation for some hacking -- I want to be sure I understand all the various recovery options I have. Plus I'm curious.
The Intercept seems to have a "secondary boot loader" in /dev/block/bml2, which appears to be the well-known Samsung "sbl". I believe this is responsible for implementing "download mode", which is what SWUpdate talks to. Has anyone had any luck using a tool like Heimdall or Odin with the Intercept to talk to the sbl?
Also, from looking inside sbl, it looks like there are strings for a basic commandline interface not dissimilar from "grub" or more popular open source bootloaders (I remember one called "bootldr" on my iPaq years ago?). It has help for commands like "nandwrite", "loadrecovery", "loadkernel", and many many more. Anyone know anything about this?
Thanks, - Greg
