TEKHD - You da man!!!

Now I'm gonna have to dive in and root this bad boy... I love the device, but root will really help me make it mine!

I know several of you have been working on all this stuff, just want to say thanks to all who have participated in making this happen!

I've never owned a device and been a part of watching it all happen from the beginning of the device being released.

Very cool to see it all come together.

Nand Write Fix - Worked for Me
@TEKHD - Thank you for this guide - very cool

Just a suggestion. I had trouble with flashing the kernel and twrp initially getting nand write errors every time. I did follow the suggested solutions at that time

Anyways i found renaming the kernel and twrp to show as .tar at the end instead of .tar.md5 worked for me and a couple others. Just a suggestion maybe to add it as an alternative Nand Write fix solution.

Thanks
Glen

okay... so... We have to use the tar then? I have a Flashable zip in the guide (Kernel as Flashable zip).... that doesn't work then? I basically need to change Step 6 and include the Kernel as tar format?
