Thank you for this! I have a Verizon Samsung S5 and the eMMC CID starts with a 15 so started with that instruction.
Got further than I have with any other method!
I finished steps 1-3 just fine. I'm at:
"4. Flash and let the phone process the file. It will reboot twice and you should be dropped into Android within a minute and a half."
Exactly how do I do that? I rebooted it normally and it is DEFINITELY not the same version of software that was on there just before.
There's a box that's see-thru with yellow lettering with a line that starts with the words:
It looks like some sort of overlay. How do I get rid of that?
Thanks. I read the OP and started with that.
I just cleaned them up a little I'll Pm you the changes
