Factory reset only wipes user data, it isn't going to restore bootloader or recovery.I was able to get the bootloader on, su installed, the recovery says it flashes but it won't boot in to it. Not sure what to do at this point?
I tried su -c "reboot recovery" as well as fastboot reboot recovery, neither work. I get a brief black screen flash and then goes back to the BL.
Considering a factory reset and trying all over. Any other suggestions?
Yeah that makes sense... Any thoughts on the best Android version to install also? 4.2.2 is working fine but wasn't sure if there was a better one at this point.
I really don't know, but I doubt it will work.I have the Rhythm Software File Manager. I tried using the one you recommended but i got a parsing error. My guess is it's too current for this old af first gen. Look man i just want to put youtube on it. Is that even possible or should i stop trying and just use it for its intended purpose.
