I was worried that downgrading bl / cp would brick it but now I will try. Although I will be using the oreo/nougat backwards compatible twrp so I should be able to go from nougat to oreo and backwards
does this mean it is safe to restore nougat baseband from my nougat twrp backup once I have downgraded bl/cp?
Also I tried again and it didn't work, my nougat backup is ironman 1.1.0 which ends in BQK6 and I'm trying to flash the bl/cp for that but it comes up with fail. I can flash BRA8 but still gives me a bootloop. what do I do now?
Also if I restore my nougat twrp, everything in internal storage disappears, so I can't really restore my nougat backup if I'm on nougat twrp. If on oreo twrp or oreo/nougat twrp I can restore my nougat backups.
