    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...

    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...

    Post Need help to get bootloader

    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...

    I see, according to Settings-->System Updates it is FireOS 5.1.1. Does that mean the one linked here is the correct build for me?

    Appreciate if you could answer the first question and any question about SuperTool. Or else, if someone can chime in that'd be fine also.

    Actually the ads do suck overall I agree with you, just want to know why or how to fix it, that's all. If I use the FireOS 5.1.1 in the link provided will that be the correct build for me? If I disconnect WiFi, will that guarantee not being force-fed an OTA update? Which version of SuperTool...

    I recall choosing the options to root and disable OTA updates, and that's all. I did not pick the one to turn off lock screen ads. So if I root and then disable OTA updates, the ads will stop completely? What does OTA updates do with lock screen ads? If that is the case, there is really no...

    I see, but we also have an old Fire HD 7 2nd gen that is rooted and still shows ads. How can it have ads but this newer one does not? If I re-install FireOS 5.1.1, will it turn off OTA updates and/or remove root? Where can I find the right version of FireOS 5.1.1? I do not want to lose root...

    I have Fire 7 5th Gen that is rooted using SuperTool on FireOS 5.1.1. I disabled auto system updates. For some reason, Ads do not appear anymore. I tried rebooting and shutting down, but none of that helped. I have ADB setup and all, not sure what to do next. Thanks in advance

    I may have figured out how to make software update to work, but have no time yet for trying it. But I still get "initializing application" when updating PRL or profile, and the 'Software Update' service remains greyed out and disabled. Please any help would be great. Thanks in advance

    Hello I have an SM-G900P Sprint Samsung Galaxy S5 on KitKat 4.4.2 rooted by towelroot, and whenever I try to update the Profile, PRL, or software I get a small caption that says "Initializing application..." and that's all, it never does anything more.

    No, factory reset fixed it, I just lost text and viber messages, but pics, downloads and whatever was on SD card is intact.

    Post Stuck in Boot Loop, can it be fixed w/o reset?

    I was afraid so, it's too late as I already did the factory reset, but i still have root, that's obviously very good. I lost my text and viber messages, i hear there is a way to get those back by data recovery or forensics tools, though.

    Post Looking for rooted NC6 tar/rom

    What are the odds of someone finding a way to root Kitkat without affecting Knox? If Knox 0x1 only voided the warranty and did not disable it then i would not care about it. I've found alternatives to Knox, that may have to be enough for now.
