The original agreed deadline for the project, was on the understanding that we acquired sample handsets two weeks prior to the proposed ‘launch date’. Unfortunately, Samsung had a strict policy in place, meaning the devices reached us with only a few days to go before the planned launch. Additionally, Samsung added a new layer of bootloader security to its Exynos range. Intended to prevent attacks, these changes made firmware modification particularly challenging.
Our teams of specialists from two continents worked together, around the clock to solve problem after problem. Fuelled by a strong desire to understand how things work and to exceed the expectations of their customers, the teams were able to discern the causes and implement timely solutions to the problems.
