What does this resister do? By jumping across it you are delivering higher voltage to something

I find this interesting.

I'm curious if anybody was ever able to downgrade the bootloader using this method.. I saw several people say they were going to/willing to try it, but never saw any positive or negative results.. I know lots of people would be interested in this if we knew one way or the other.. In a few months my wife will be due for an upgrade and I'll get her hand-me-down and I can give it a shot then if nobody else has, but that won't be until February of 16..

I haven't tried rooting this phone in years but I went through the same thing as you. Verizon did something so that (way back then, I don't know about new rooting techniques) this phone wouldn't run anything but a stock recovery. As a matter of fact I tried to install the same recovery and got the same results. I got mine back using this video and haven't touched mine since I got it back up.

Enhancing SD boot .img for SCH-I605 ND7 (locked) bootloader
@KOBOL:

,could you give us a hand a bit with experiences / methods - as there I have a similar case of corrupted SCH-I605 - but with 4.4.2 ND7 bootloader (locked one) and 16GB EMMC .pit

I grasp the resistor switching to SDcard.

What I do not know yet is what is necessary , and how can we enhance this SD boot to download mode with assembling an SD .img for 4.4.2 ND7 corrupted bootloader - in this case 16GB EMMC (i.e. .pit) version of SCH-I605 that seem to be corrupted, therefore losing the bootloader.

(In more details, the brick happened before, or during flashing via ODIN while on a bad battery or something-totally out of the blue receiving FAIL! and being bricked afterwards.
Anyway, I want to construct SDcard boot to download mode for that reason , and not to lose the existing data on EMMC.)

Question:
-What are important stuff to modify from the older bootloaders SD emergency boot .img ?
-Just on top off my head -> Can we extract bootloader off SCH-I605 4.4.2 ND7s' firmware to assemble the SDcard unbrick image or which way to go?

I want to solve it for 4.4.2ND7 - but would appreciate your help/experience on this.

Resources: (FYI)
I also have dedicated thread on solving SCH-I605 ND7 problematics as it becomes a legacy phone.
There I have resources posted , like Samsungs' open-sourced SCH-I605 4.4.2ND7 kernel and platform source on their open-source page for their handsets, etc.. (I know, that goes after the bootloader)

For the EFS stuff - I have a backup from my own ND7 so that is supposedly not a problem.

That leaves us with the point: how to get the system in download mode so that we can flash firmware correctly back to EMMC , with the correct .pit so that the existing data does not get destroyed?

Also, as a next possibility, how to fix if .pit is damaged as well , or ultimately - how to just read the existing EMMC data and ditch the motherboard?

Cheers,
DMRtech
