Pop Icon Forum Locked?
« on: December 16, 2016, 02:51:31 pm »
Hi guys! Just curious why the Pop Icon forum is empty and locked to new posts. We have two active phones in my house, and I keep one for a backup (which I'm compelled to use while I sort out my Note4 bootloop/EMMC issues).

There was work here and elsewhere on a rooting process, so it seems potentially worth discussing (though most discussions seem to lead to the conclusion that it's the world's most unrootable device). Aside from the horrible OS that accumulates junk data to the point of inoperability, this is one of the best phones TF has put out, and I really wish it could live up to its potential...

:)

The forum is still open to posts, it's not locked. You probably looked at the locked icon below, it's in a icon guide box.

Almost all the root methods I have tried appeared to work, but they don't stick after reboot, and the phone doesn't seem to have the rooted installed correctly. To some there is not to much purpose pushing a phone on when it's over 2 years old.

One thing I can say is I managed to enter the stock recovery mode, so it might be possible to extract and modify it to install a custom recovery where root could be force installed, or a ROM for that matter.

Sure there is potential, but there is a small margin that could unleash that. There is a huge factor of unknown in the phone. I take a quick look at it over the week.
