    Just curious, but has anyone thought of the idea of using one of their update packages? Modify it into installing a couple binaries?

    What about the zte backdoor. I remember reading somewhere online like 4 or 5 months ago. Something to do with a weird 4th su. Cuz if i remember correctly dosent having root and unlocked bootloader on zte change the api to 2. Think it was DooMLoRd root. Not sure tho. Could be flailing rn for despiration.

    What if we found a way to clone the device signature keys instead to the files and find a way to block ota check during update. Looking at a few files and hidden apk's I'm my phone through es and I came across a few I've never seen in any previous phones besides the sprint flagship HTC desire 626s

    Could it be possible in our phones to inject root and SuperSU on an update zip and flash it. I know that @GameTheory has donevit in the past. I know he did it for the LG Stylo. Which I had same in several other devices... I have been trying to get in touch with him butvit has been impossible to find him same with @viperdink (very good fellas) that have done a lot for the community.

    Still modifying part of the code. If not done thoroughly with proper signature keys you will fail to flash without starting from nothing. A literal powered weight.

    I'd assume that's the security bug part of b21 they found. But it's proving to be a wall with any updates after I'm reading. So if your on b21 stay. Google rolled out a new security update that hasn't hit this device yet that I know of. I'm on b21 so I'm still in the green if they figure things out.

    Not sure if I'm new to finding this but when powering up spam press the volume + & - to get into ftm. Was really weird. Looks like this on my phone

    I love you. Thank you for keeping us updated. I know it's been a long time coming for this device and hearing news of there being a big possibility from someone reliable in the past is the greatest news I think I've heard so far

    Also side note. My friend has the same phone as me but he's on Android 7.1.1 already. He said that his phone bricked and they replaced the CPU and RAM and loaded nougat. His settings all check out. I don't know what those guys did to his but I might go through them if it means I'll be able to send the released files instead of encrypted and locked. Sigh. Zte really should have thought about this device a bit more

    Today I found something weird. My phone stopped blocking me from deleting certain system files. I disabled a bunch of system apps and prevented the permissions to them and then my phone got a little weird for a second and when I went to my backups inside of phone / backups/ .system config there were 2 files I haven't been able to delete before but can now. As well as I went to Android and tried to brick my phone all files but one deleted. Here's my pics. What did I just do to my device. Haven't noticed any issues yet but I'm nervous.

    Thought this may help in dumping firmware on qualcom, although the keys are still a issue.
    On a side note I completely gave up and bought a new phone with twrp xposed magisk all that good stuff that we all deserve. Anyway if this serves nothing please disregard. It may help other Qualcom etc. Hovatek is an excellent source for all levels
    Good Luck
