I am working on getting a proper MJE SDCARD debrick image. I will need memory dumps of the boot partitions.

From ADB shell or terminal emulator run the following command

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/unbrick.img bs=512 count=524288

This will place a file called unbrick.img into /sdcard (not your actual memory card (extSdCard) but your internal device memory. All I need you to do is upload this file anywhere you see fit so I can download it. I greatly appreciate your time!

At this time, I am only looking for retail SM-N900V MJE dumps.

No sensitive data will be dumped with this command, and you will be helping the community out greatly if you have the time.

Retail or DE? Or does it matter?

Preferably retail, but if you have DE, go ahead anyways. Maybe I'll be able to find something new. As long as it's MJE.

That may be a problem. While baseband is MJE, ROM is CM11. That surely won't work. Sorry about that.

It won't grab anything from CM11, don't worry. These are just the boot partitions which would remain unmodified after installing CM11.

Sorry for not getting in touch - I know I disappeared as if I had died. Life - and work - intervened to the point of needing to drop something on the floor, and unfortunately that was my XDA involvement. (As it is, even this post is a little bit of hooky). But all is well; I see you are still fighting the good fight. Thanks for your efforts.
