Stock 1270CN rom for flashing via OST (unbricking/edl)

ONLY FOR SG1 (Aquos S3 mini) MODEL!!!

Files below are done by me and prepared for you. I don't own Sharp Aquos S3 min myself (borrowed), device is only interesting for me for experiments. All sharing of information below must link to this message.
I don't take any responsibility on bricked devices or by crooked hands.
Do it on your own risk!!!

This tool and rom are for normal flashing "from the box" and unbricking from fastboot or hs-usb mode 9008.
How it works:


1. Download OST portable and run launch.exe. It will install all needed drivers. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1X9sihCc_RzTfSe6PhW9saZbnRsMLK4j7
2. Download nb0 firmware https://drive.google.com/open?id=11ciRw31-Pk5sL1X2dD-03rF9yp56NivE
3. Enter "Download mode" (Hold Vol down + power at reboot while connected via usb OR "adb reboot bootloader" via usb debugging)
4. Install from OST with options : Normal Download, Erase data
in case of 9008 brick: use Emergency download option.

Trying now! I'm soo Excited!

I have sucessfully installed stock rom, and flashed TWRP. Could I use Supersu here, or do I have to use Magik?

When I try to unlock bootloader, the fastboot driver isn't working and fastboot doesn't see phone. It works for installing the rom and twrp, but fastboot doesn't work. Is there a different driver for fastboot commands?

try to use fastboot from OST folder

You can use only Magisk here

Do you mean launch the command prompt from that folder? Or actually RUN (double click) fastboot from that folder?

Hey heineken78,
I noticed after starting over that when you install twrp and format data and reboot system, the phone will continue to reboot to download mode unless you unplug the phone from the computer before restarting.

the power button does not work. i held it in for over 5 min and nothing. i have to let the phone die and plug it back in to computer. Hopefully that will send it into download mode.....If not I have an expensive paperweight.
Sucks!

@heineken78 is there any chance to get Treble on Aquos S3 mini like you did on Aquos S2? Anyway it's so good to have at least custom recovery and ability to install gapps. Thanks!

hold volume + and power for 10 seconds- reboot, immediately press the volume - and power - bootloader mode.
This is the Unlocking bootloader problem. As an option to reflash according to the instructions, and everything will work.
