    There's the pin out; get the hard mod installed and make sure you can read and write first

    Hook it up to a pc with the SD reader and then rip the band with windiskimger. Do two dumps and see if the md5 match. Once ripped change some things on the desktop like add a folder or something then write the nand back to see if it works

    Cheaper to pay me to downgrade it or install a hardmod.

    Yeah you'll need to dump the nand before downgrade, imop hard mod is the way to go. 10.5 dg and otp are the top two reasons

    Requires a hardmod and patching a few files. If you have zero soldering skills do not attempt.

    Yeah, I know. I saw your video on YT. I'll probably pay someone to do this.
