Added knowledge 3: Download Button


Download option result. There are tree option before download start in selection may affect result to device here are below..
1. Format + Download
2. Download Only
3  Firmware upgrade

The Format + download if you select is clearing all nand/eemc partition also such as security,nvram,calibration data. meaning if you flash program the device in this condition the IMEI and baseband erase, make it sure you have backup this file to restore, The other way to fix if you dont backup is to using PAID Tools like sigma box ! be care full to select this option

Download only is to insert ROM file without clearing calibration security data, its clear only userdata.
Its safeway option.

Firmware Upgrade is to insert ROM file which is per partition erase, its clearing also userdata or change address partition by preloader address.
