    Will this break any future Update functions for Android security, Google apps, Samsung apps, etc?

  • Hi,

    To install LineageOS… On your screenshot is a “platform-tools” folder. Where came this from? Odin3 runs without installation, so from where come this “platform-tools” folder to start the adb command?

    Regards,
    Daniel

    • LUNATIC

      Is there a chance of losing my phone ? Or software problems like boot loop ?
