I actually have been having a hell of a time getting mtk client to even detect the phone in windows. I cloned mtkclient in Parrot OS (linux). And have tried that way too but i guess I still have too much to learn about linux to get this to work in parrot. Think I'm gonna try ubuntu or try to clone the ReLive disc image to an unused partition on my HDD and try to boot it. I'm not sure how to add it to GRUB and make it boots that way. But I dont have a thumb drive handy any time soon. Was thinking about using drivedroid but I dont have a rooted phone atm. Could root this newly acquired s7 to do the trick but I would be stuck on a pieces together system using engineering from and I guess that's not terrible but this is my main device right now and can't afford to have the issues that go along with that until I get a properly rooted backup device.
Does anyone have any advice on where to find the drivers for windows to get mtkclient working? It seems that I can't even get python set up right because of permission issues and etc... in windows 11...
I'll try running the iso for the ReLive as VM i
When I get home today.
I know all of this is probably not necessary for most people to get their devices rooted as you guys are working on a simpler method to release. But for the sake of learning I'm gonna try the hard way lol. Any advice would be appreciated.
Also I know the s7 is d
But many of us would love the help of anyone interested in getting a decent rom and some issues resolved on the g930 now as they are being given away through cintex wireless and airtalk wireless, its twin sister when u sign up for the free lifeline/acp services. These companies offer the best free phone I've found so far. S7 in my book beats out any of what the other lifeline companies are offering right now

Omg your absolutely right. [Face palm!]
That should have been soo obvious.
Idk why I didn't think about that at all. I was so focused on trying to do this as mentioned by the OP, I completely overlooked a major major detail.
Sometimes I wonder how I even made it to adulthood Haha. Thanks.
Must remember to think instead of blindly following lol

My friend just got a new motorola G pure from assurance and gave me his U693CL phone. Assurance shut it off, they didn't want it back and he has no use for it now that he has a new phone. So I guess I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to upgrade it beyond android 9 or make it more useful? It's a little piece of ****, but I could find use for it if there's anyway to get it off android 9. Yeah, I know, stupid question or whatever. But I didn't feel the need to start a new thread.

    JuSt A FrIeNdLy- shut up senior citizen,messageboards are the past. Instant messaging is the future. Just now noticed this high and mighty comment,and woooow. Im siding with Pizza,get telegram or get left out. Might see if releases can be explciity telegram too,just to spite yall. Ill ask him later.....
    There are a couple of things that need to be addressed here...

    First of all, that is not the way we expect users to address other members. Rudeness, flaming, etc is not tolerated on XDA. Treat other members with respect (no matter their age, young or old) and courtesy. This is quite clear in the forum rules, under "Member conduct", so if you're not familiar with said rules I suggest you read through them carefully:

    Secondly, Telegram. Chat apps can be quite useful, especially when there's need for direct and quick communication. But, if someone wants their work available here on XDA there needs to be support for it here as well. We're not simply a gateway to other forums or platforms... We generally allow development projects to have a Telegram support link, but if the thread is used solely to drive traffic away from XDA it will be closed.

    XDA is about sharing, and you don't even have to be a member of the forum to be able to benefit from everything that's available here. We want to keep it that way, but if all support and development can be found under Telegram links it won't be so readily available.

    TL;DR: Tone down the attitude and while Telegram links are allowed support and development need to be available on XDA if a thread is to stay open.

    If anyone has anything to add on this, or have any questions my inbox is always open. Let's not keep posting about this here since we want to keep the thread on topic.

    Have you tried installing the custom rom zip file through the recovery that PizzaG inlcuded? I have had no problems with that (except setting up a lockout pin where it says pin not accepted even though it was correct).
    the PIN issue is due to disabled force encryption. If you NEED the ability to lock the screen,i have a debloated vendor of my own that has forceencrypt enabled if youd like it
    PSA - Don't cause drama

    Had to do some cleaning. A few posts have been removed, since they were abusive and had no purpose other than creating drama.

    Don't do that...

    The results can now be seen in the 1st post of this thread.
