Q9h and WiFi response from HorizonWireless

Posted · Report post

I was going to send my Q9H in the this company to get the Wifi turned on or hacked on. Here is the response that I got the company

Hello Jason,

Sorry for the delay in response, we have been inundated with questions and requests. Over 500 emails. We have been weeding through them, answering each individually.

Some Q9H's that are floating around have wifi radio's. It seems that early Motorola Q9H's have the hardware. We did the mod on Rogers branded Q9H'S that were given internally to a Rogers corporate office. As many of us in the industry know, Motorola sometimes turns off features or bands for that matter. I asked our chief technician Steven Vasco (the actual person who found the mod) and he said that in order to determine which unit you have you would either need to open the unit, or check it using special software. We don't recomend you actually open the phone yourself though. The software is a program that is given to actual service centers and repair shops. Im not sure if its available on the internet though. We do have a local drop off spot, we are located in Montreal I hope that answered some of your questions. If you have any more, feel free to ask away.

So, is it that we need to start building a new ROM. I have a lot of firmware writing experience and I've been trying with a install of linux to create a rom reader but not having the best of success.

What do I need to look for inside? I will crack my ATT Q9h open in 2 seconds to check. I've already had it apart to change the faceplate, so I know the procedure.

I guess we would need to know the chipset that you find inside. Broadcom for the Wifi I don't know. If any of you have a nice camera you can post pictures here and I'll look up the chipset. Also are there any connection ports on the system board?
