True. But I would think there would be a way to duplicate the fastboot behavior and boot from an alternate image file without requiring the use of a PC.

You can only issue fastboot commands from an external device via USB while your Rezound is in fastboot mode in the bootloader.

Not quite. I don't believe the fastboot method actually flashes anything to the boot image, so this method leaves more room for error due to the process of saving / flashing / restoring the boot image.

That is the only way to do it without fastboot.

I am building a GUI for this so it will be pretty sick. Should be out tomorrow night.

Sure, but this method doesn't require a computer (or other external device) for those times when you are away from a computer. You can't do the fastboot method without a second device.

The 3D had a program called Flash Image GUI. It did what we're trying to accomplish here. Interestingly enough the program "worked" but it wasn't nearly as reliable as the fastboot method

And please don't take any of what I say a hating. I am merely discussing and spitballing. Lord knows that with the drama over at the 3D forums and Chad kernels I am not trying to bring that hate here. Not in the slightest.

I will post this in the other thread too. Thanks for all your hard work sir!

I am almost finished with a recovery file that will unify all the functions of Troy's tool as well as adding a couple extras with a single zip that uses the touchscreen in recovery.
