    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 8 2016 (giza)

    That doesn't really matter, it's still a USB3 controller. And yeah, USB passthrough isn't a good idea either. I'm not sure what do you mean by "2 bootrom modes", but I'm pretty sure (or at least, as far as I know) there's just one bootrom mode (and Preloader, which is the second stage of the...

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 8 2016 (giza)

    The revelant error here is the RuntimeError (in this case, ERROR: Serial protocol mismatch). It usually means you're trying to run the script while the tab is in Preloader Mode (0e8d:2000). That's weird, the output of dmesg you posted contains the bootROM USB VID/PID(s). I noticed you're using...

    Try to grab logs while you reproduce the issue (include kernel logs as well, so I can check the kpd status).

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    If you read my comments above, you will see that they use a partition called unlock (which is not a real partition, but a small sector of the boot1 partition) to store the unlock code. So yeah, their "backdoor" (if you can call it like that) is basically (something like) fastboot flash unlock...

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    There is no possibility. The commands have never been there. I have already decompiled the stock bootloader image with Ghidra and there is not a single reference to any of them.

    We actually booted 64 bit LineageOS 14.1 on karnak (using blobs from some Asus MT8163 tab). However, almost nothing worked.

    Post [ROM] [unlocked] [douglas,giza] [OTAs] Lineage-15.1 [02 JAN 2022]

    I would prefer to keep the LineageOS sources as stock as possible. You might hate the default sounds, but other people might like them. So yeah I think it's best to just leave them as is and let users change them afterwards if they don't like the defaults (like you did). As a side note, since...

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    That won't work either, Amazon removed all these commands (check by yourself by running the GNU strings command over the LK image). They simply allow you to flash the unlock code to the "unlock partition" (which is a small part of the boot1 - idme - area). Note that flashing a big file to the...

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    That's just the output of mtk payload which just disables DAA/SLA/SBC until you reboot the device. So no, that's not the bootloader unlock option.
  13. Rortiz2

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    No, the "unlock bootloader" option of mtkclient won't work here because Amazon isn't using the seccfg partition to handle the bootloader status of their devices. However, all the other options are working correctly (read, write, boot patched images, etc).

    I have read that in one of your gizas you had to disconnect the battery to be able to unlock it. By any chance, the tablet that gives you problems is that one? If so, I guess you should check the battery connector.

    Post [ROM] [unlocked] [douglas,giza] [OTAs] Lineage-15.1 [02 JAN 2022]

    Unfortunately, I'm still not sure of what's causing deep sleep to not work at all (even though I tried to debug it a lot of times). So yeah, I can't give you an exact date (or estimated) of when I'll fix that issue.

    Post [ROM] [unlocked] [douglas,giza] [OTAs] Lineage-15.1 [02 JAN 2022]

    Yes, there were similar reports here, but I thought they were already resolved (with the wi-fi HAL update). Since the patch I sent to anujdatar didn't work as expected, I guess I'll have to debug this issue as well. If any of you experience the same problem again, please try to get a kernel log...

    Thanks for the log, but unfortunately it's kinda useless since I can't see how does camera init. Could you grab instead a log while you power on the tablet (Amazon Logo -> LineageOS bootanimation -> Home Screen)?

    Not sure what's wrong with MicroG then. The patch is there (and applied, I double checked it). Can't do anything else, sorry. As for giza camera, try to grab boot logs, they should be different now.

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 8 2016 (giza)

    Yes, that's an expected behavior. You must temporarily brick the device to enter bootROM mode using the volume rocker.

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 8 2016 (giza)

    If you can't root you need to follow the second post instructions. You need to downgrade to 5.3.1.0 with the Stock Recovery (using Apply Update from ADB option) to downgrade the preloader. Once done, just run bootrom-step.sh and plug in the tab while you press the left volume button.

    Post [ROM][testing][mustang] Lineage-16.0 [12 Mar 2021]

    Im not sure if model number has something to do actually. But yeah, if it's a patched HW revision nothing can be done (at the moment). If it's not a patched HW unit, all I can say is keep trying and make sure you're shorting the correct pin + you're using something conductive.

    Without the output of the scripts I can't really tell (nor guess) at which point it failed. Assuming it installed 5.3.1.1 bootloaders, try to follow this steps: Power off the tab (use stock recovery - if accessible - or just remove the battery). Download the latest amonet (giza) zip and open a...

    Post [ROM][testing][mustang] Lineage-16.0 [12 Mar 2021]

    This isn't the correct place to discuss about the unlock. You should ask for help here. RuntimeError: ERROR: Serial protocol mismatch Means the tablet was in Preloader Mode (08ed:2000) when you tried the script so probably you have a patched (HW) revision which prevents you from triggering...

    Post Fire HD 8 (9th Generation) Onyx Engineering Sample (with Root access, full fastboot)

    This really looks promising. However, someone may need to check if the node is present here. Unfortunately, after reading the article I figured out the node isn't accessible through the user-space so I'm not sure if it helps us at all. However, the aursys vulnerability looks interesting as well.

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    If you want to try it, patch both LK and Preloader and ONLY dd LK to the eMMC. After that, use mtkclient to boot the patched Preloader. If you can't get it to work, I'll provide you more detailed instructions later.

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    Of course the device is dead. The images patched by that tool are supposed to be used with mtkclient to temporarily boot them to temporarily unlock the device. So yeah. It indeed unlocks the bootloader but you need a PC every time you want to reboot the tablet. It's basically some kind of...

    Post New Fire HD10 2019 Bootless Root Method + Bootloader Unlock Brainstorming

    If it was that easy do you think people would donate 100$? Unfortunately to use Magisk you need an unlocked bootloader and we can only archieve bootless root with mtk-su (which limits us from editing the /system partition).

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] FireTV 2 (sloane)

    Since your firmware is too new (and you can't root with mtk-su nor any other SW root method) you'll need to open up the device to short it and follow the directions of the second post.

  43. Rortiz2

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 8 2016 (giza)

    I assume you previously ran step-1.sh and it temporarily bricked the tablet because the image versions were too new. If that's the case, try to run bootrom-step.sh minimal without the battery connected.
