PLEASE HELP ME I CAN’T FIND MY BUILD IN THE MODEL SELECTION SCREEN
Enter the number [i.e. 01] that matches your Models version and build.
To find your devices build goto Settings, About device 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 Model 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. 4.1.1].
Some options also cover a range of builds [AMA2-AMB5] so if your build is within this range [AMB1] you can choose that option for your device.
The Model Selection Screen is there so that if a task in the ToolKit requires an insecure kernel [to perform adb root commands] and your phone 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 phone then it will most probably have an insecure kernel included so it doesn’t really matter if your build is not listed on the Model Selection Screen and when asked [by certain functions] if you have an insecure kernel on your phone you can answer ‘yes’. However if the function fails then your kernel may not be insecure in which case you can flash one from the ToolKit. If you need to do this make sure the right build [or closest available build] is set so you flash the right image for your phone.
Symptoms of flashing an incompatible Boot Image may be your phone 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 I can add support for new models and builds very easy.
If you need to download the model specific files again then simply delete the model folder from the Toolkit ‘root’ folder, run the Toolkit and after you select your model/build it will trigger a download of the model file again.
