Can this be done by mobile Odin?

Sent from my GT-N7100

Certainly won't work, you can read first line of Mobile odin menu
It can't flash bootloader.
I highly recommend to not to try even.

I think only deodexed script won't work, you have to flash patch to make it working as what I understand this security.
Actually i have even not flashed mj5 ever on my device, i have no time left for now. But bash can be helpful but still I doubt you can make it to work on one go.
Still it will be helpful for users as they can get prerooted and deodexed rom.

Agree.
But I meant bash script using terminal emulator to run once and do the deodexing. Or maybe offline script from recovery. Let me see. I might succeed.

No no not for deodexing, what I mean to say even after making prerooted and deodexed, it may need to flash patch to activate wifi. So after running flashable rom zip, one have to apply patch.

Can someone explain how does the new bootloader affect the device?
Does it restrict recovery access? Custom roms and kernels?
What's the benefit of not upgrading to the new bootloader?

    You're the man doc.
    Great stuff.
    After doing that...
    I will try to write a script to deodex it and zip align it when time permits.

    hi @dr.ketan, i am not able to flash MJ5BLPatch.tar.md5 file through odin... it shows "failed"...
    What is your current bootloader version, check with Samsung Info app from play store, you will see it is higher than MJ5 so it must fail trying to downgrade.
