    Post Need help to get bootloader

    No, I get 'error: closed' when I run the .bat file as Administrator and it outputs a boot.img file that is 0 bytes in C:\ Yes the OA6 ROM is a ZIP file that Windows is able to open by itself, and I see a boot.img file in there. But even if this is the boot loader how can it be turned into a...

    I do not have a .TAR or .TAR.MD5 file of any bootloader and that command you gave does not work it says "%%a was unexpected at this time" after the second line.

    Ok it is SM-G900P w/ Android 4.4.2 NE5 rooted and Knox 0x0. I'd like to upgrade to Android 5.0 OA6 and keep Knox and root. Yes that is a good explaination of what the TAR.MD5 file is. I'm never able to find a TAR file without MD5 as that verifies it. I've read that to upgrade to Android 5.0...

    My Sprint Galaxy S5 is rooted what kind of file does this command output? Is it an IMG file? I'm looking for a TAR.MD5 file, and need it from a firmware/ROM that is not on the phone.

    Wow I had no idea Odin is a Samsung only tool Yes it is Sprint Galaxy S5, does thread need to be moved now? I see is any way to know if the bootloader is unlocked? And if not, then can it be done?

    Thread Need help to get bootloader

    Hello How is a bootloader available as a tar.md5 file to flash in Odin? Is it possible to take the bootloader out of a Stock or Rooted ROM? Does it come from the boot.img file in some way ? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance

    Well, I never claimed to be an expert on this matter. But the video I followed to root only mentions SuperSU and not KingRoot. I need to go at this the best way. It looks as if a factory reset is first option and if that does not fix lock screen ads then will try to reinstall the firmware. I...

    SuperTool uses SuperSU, not KingRoot so internet is not needed. And factory reset should retain root since it does not alter the SYSTEM partition. However, it's quite possible a factory reset will still not fix lock screen ads.

    I use SuperTool, which is desktop (tethered) so do not need internet to root. Do you know if SuperTool retains root after a factory reset?

    It's been awhile since I rooted this, but do not recall needing WiFi to root, why would that be required? Well, then I should definitely try a factory reset first before re-loading the firmware.

    Yes, I was lucky that I rooted it quickly and disabled OTA updates at the same time. The Wifi was disconnected when I did both of that. I'm thinking If I do something similar it should end up as is now. With WiFi not connected, there is zero chance of OTA update, right? Will factory reset keep...
