Jetdroid Basic Guide (For beginner)
=========================================================================================

~ | PURPOSE OF THIS POST:
==============================================
To help beginner :
  • Know their own risk.
  • Easier take part in Jetdroid Project.
  • Avoid almost unwanted errors.
  • Find out an answer without asking and waitng ;) .

~ | INTRODUCTION:
==============================================
The Samsung Jét (GT-S8000/GT-S8003) is advertised to be smarter-than-smartphone. Unfortunatly the phone software is in some aspects not very smart. The hardware however, is quite capable. Thus nothing is more likely than using an open platform like Android to overcome the obstacles of the original software.

~ | KNOWN YOUR RISK:
==============================================
Your phone will be turned into a brick if there is any fault in first step (Flashing JetQi).

It is spoke that a phone with simlock breaks itself without fail. So only normal phones can be flashed.

It is important to say that flashing with a bad bootloader cannot be rollbacked. Any mistake with it will turn your phone into a brick! As flashing via USB is a feature of the bootloader a broken bootloader will not have this feature. Also the phone after it may lose an ability to load current OS. So the phone will not work!!!

The JetDroid project is not functional right now. Thus it advised to flash the bootloader only if you are a developer and you know what you are doing. Regular users should not use it now! As the project is not fuctional right now you have more chances to break your phone than to have anything useful.

But don't worry. Just be sure :
  • NO phone lock, NO sim lock, NO network lock (How-to-check in A | Preparation)
  • Flashing RIGHT JetQi bootloader.
  • Do NOT turn off your computer or UNPLUG cable before flashing progress complete (this progress may take couple seconds)
