This was the only way for me to installing a custom ROM, since my device has a locked bootloader. I do wish that a) wipe would not be put at the bottom every time, and b) FlashFire would reinstall itself after a wipe. Otherwise, awesome work, and thanks! 😁 Also, when will this time bomb actually go off?
I was hesitant at first, but after reading about how to install a factory update, I decided to try it. Worked like a dream. Downloaded the factory image, followed instructions, unchecked recovery and hit the button. Saw how it was working and then it booted, then it stop booting for a few seconds, then started booting again and it took like 6 minutes, then booted up. Worked great. Still rooted and have twrp. Great work guys
Awesome with my not so well known devices. Just does not work with the 16 cm su, which comes preloaded with Lineage 7.1.1 Edit: Sorry. HeHeHe. SELinux has to be permissive in CM SU.
For years and through many different cellphones I've been rooting and changing OSes and this is by far the best apk to get the job done. Every hacker and hacker-wanna-be needs try this tool.
works amazingly well used on s5 Verizon extensively and on my lg nexus 4 thanks for your contributions to the android development world :)
For Nexus users don't bother using this for OTA's. Just abd sideload and reroot. 1 star until this app is easier than method mentioned.
