Will booting with the stock boot image from a06 allow me to apply the latest OTA, though?The stock A06 kernel from the original post will work to boot the phone running A07, I have used that. Do not flash it though, just do fastboot boot with the image. Either that or you can download the EU full OTA zip and extract the boot image that way, that's how Marco589 made the patched image in the first post.
That is the issue I am trying to resolve. I am on A07 and rooted. The A08 OTA fails, assuming due to my root.
Since I cannot unroot without a stock A07 image, I don't know if booting with an older image will allow me to apply an OTA, will it?
Thanks for your help
