    Post [ROM] [Experimental] Stock Pie (F800L30e) for H990DS

    Just for the Experience I was thinking about if I can use QFIL (QPST) to flash F800 Nougat partition tables, I may be able to flash its Nougat stock rom such as F800L10e_00_0914.kdz. Then, from all the dirtySanta unlock bootloader, TWRP, etc., etc. I may start replacing the modem partition...

    [/COLOR] Oh! Well, I am not alone then. Thanks for the reply. Cheers!;) BTW, hopefully, we'll get the "non-replaceable" battery kind of restriction lifted soon, so that we can have a much wider choice in selecting our devices. I don't even value "waterproof" kind of gimmicks.

    Doesn't show-up in data/ts-bind The first thing you will do, IMO, is to make sure the installation have created a brand new "/data/ts-binds". If the installation fails to re-create that folder with its contents it's all going to be futile to run any meaningful terminal command.
