    Now if we could only flash a real recovery and get rid of Knox entirely.

    But at least we can fix a soft-brick, SD card boot to fix a hard brick, root and flash a custom ROM, all thanks to these guys. And remember to do a full file backup and save it somewhere (that's another trick one of the guys used to fix a brick), but you'll need a large enough SD card to do it. My 16GB ran out of space before it finished. I suspect that a 32GB will have enough room.

    Not a backup, but

    This is how to stuff MJ5 into the phone. (A lot of work.) Some slow downloads and I don't have a current fast server to put them on.
