PLEASE HELP ME I CAN’T FIND MY BUILD IN THE BUILD SELECTION SCREEN
Enter the number that matches your Model version and build.
To find your devices build goto Settings, About and make a note of the information on the Build number section. Use this to select the right option.
The Toolkit includes a selection of Insecure Boot Images to cover all the different builds available. As there are very many different builds it is impossible to include an image for every single build but some builds share the same Boot Image. If you have a build that isnt listed on the Build Selection Screen you can therefore use a similar build. The best way to go is up to the next available build as it should offer more compatibility with the build you are using but if that isn’t available then try the next build below your one as it
should still be almost identical as long as it is the same version [ie. JOP40C].
The Build Selection Screen is there so that if a task in the ToolKit requires an insecure kernel [to perform adb root commands] and your device doesnt already include one, a compatible boot image [with an insecure kernel included] can be flashed to provide adb root access.
If you have a Custom Rom flashed to your device then it will most probably have an insecure kernel included so it doesn’t really matter if your build is not listed on the Build Selection Screen and when asked [by certain functions] if you have an insecure kernel on your device you can answer ‘yes’. However if the function fails then your kernel may not be insecure in which case you can use one from the ToolKit. If you need to do this make sure the right build [or closest available build] is set so you use the right image for your device.
Symptoms of flashing an incompatible Boot Image may be your device getting stuck at the boot screen, going into a boot loop or certain things such as wifi or bluetooth not working properly.
After you have chosen your model/build a zip file will be downloaded with Boot and Recovery files specifically for your model. These files are not included in the installer so that the installation size is smaller and you only get what you need. Also having the model files as a downloadable zip means support can be added for new models and builds very quickly and easily via Auto Updates.
If you need to download the model specific files again then simply delete the boot-insecure files from the Toolkit ‘root’ folder, run the Toolkit and after you select your model/build it will trigger a download of the model files again.
