It is possible to flash stuff with ft in flashmode in win8.1-64. (lights off)

fastboot mode is not so good I believe. (blue light)

PC companion still overflashed (no light) the E1 after messing with ft. I left the bootloader untouched = locked.

overall, I like ODIN & Galaxy better for flashing.

you do need ft ! after ONANDROID restore, you easily get into FC loop. PC 'companion' will let you down. Only FT in flashmode will soft-unbrick your E1 !

though ergonomics in ft is kinda messy. anyway.

General BACKUP hints on E1

conclusion : no nandroid on E1 ! very bad !



solution: we must manually use dd for read write partns !




since E1 does not have CWM or ASR for nandroid backupping, we use ONANDROID after towelroot.

no E1 patch file developed yet, so only SYS and USER partition backup poss.

its nice to have a NANDROID on E1. But its bad that it cannot be restored by NANDROID MANAGER, because that relies on CWM for restore, which is non existant on E1.

hotboot fail

hotbooting E1 stock .elf or .Image kernels fails.

maybe its not proper "boot.img" format
