ONLY FOR SG1 (Aquos S3 mini) MODEL!!!

Files below are done by me and prepared for you. I don't own Sharp Aquos S3 min myself (borrowed), device is only interesting for me for experiments. All sharing of information below must link to this message.
I don't take any responsibility on bricked devices or by crooked hands.
Do it on your own risk!!!

This tool and rom are for normal flashing "from the box" and unbricking from fastboot or hs-usb mode 9008.
How it works:

2. Download nb0 firmware https://drive.google.com/open?id=11c...-03rF9yp56NivE
3. Enter "Download mode" (Hold Vol down + power at reboot while connected via usb OR "adb reboot bootloader" via usb debugging)
4. Install from OST with options : Normal Download, Erase data
in case of 9008 brick: use Emergency download option.


OST



5. Click Next and patiently wait for download finish.

Trying now! I'm soo Excited!

---------- Post added at 06:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:04 PM ----------

I have sucessfully installed stock rom, and flashed TWRP. Could I use Supersu here, or do I have to use Magik?

---------- Post added at 06:19 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:09 PM ----------

When I try to unlock bootloader, the fastboot driver isn't working and fastboot doesn't see phone. It works for installing the rom and twrp, but fastboot doesn't work. Is there a different driver for fastboot commands?

Do you mean launch the command prompt from that folder? Or actually RUN (double click) fastboot from that folder?

Hey heineken78,
I noticed after starting over that when you install twrp and format data and reboot system, the phone will continue to reboot to download mode unless you unplug the phone from the computer before restarting.

Sorry about that heineken78, I was hurrying and only glanced at the name. I have to get the fastboot working before I can install root.
