Hi,

on lolinet I see two different types of firmwares: QPI30 and QPIS30. I seem to be able to install only QPI30 (without the S) on my rooted G8 Plus.

Can someone explain the difference between those two?

Regards,
Bornheim

I'm not 100% sure. I originally thought that the S was an indication of a security update. However, I am also seeing that the S builds start at the same time when A10 was released on this phone, so it may have something to do with that.

I recommend that you be very clear exactly which build you currently have, and then install only that exact build. If necessary, get the firmware from the LMSA download rather than lolinet to be sure. If you use a boot.img that doesn't coincide with your firmware, you'll break your touch-screen.....
