Skip flashing bootloader as you already have newer
Thank you @dr.ketan. I was trying to flash VGA. I downloaded VH7 and it flashed fine.
You can try, don't flash bootloader & modem. If that doesn't work then you have to wait for new. I have omitted VH7 because of other project. Next will be based on Sept sec patch
Yes, N985 bootloader files are old, just skip flashing itSo, Im coming from android 11 very stock with magisk and root done the "organic" way.
I'm following every part of the tutorial and when I get to flash the BL, AP and CS from the tutorial on the last step (after flashing super.img and installer.zip) I get the same error, when flashing everything fails because phone is on binary 4 and the one i'm flashing is 3, flashing stops and phone gets soft-bricked. Flashing stock works without any problems to recover the phone.
Should I just skip flashing the BL then?
I've never touched IMEI and I don't think it matters where I am, carriers don't really care, I used to run a IMEI-less phone a few years ago without any issues.
EDIT: Also, my phone is a 985F, My guess is I should NOT install the 986 kernel on installation setup, right?
