thanks, im just want confirmation method..:)

when the person who has posted it after LOTS of testing, has clearly indicated that ITS ONLY FOR UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS, that what more confirmation do you want?


maybe someone can prepair tft file for who has locked BL in a short time

sure give me the secret certificates/signatures and I will prepare an FTF for you :D
