rickywyatt, I take it you have the leaked ICS for our device? If so I think I have an xml that could work, I'm not certain we actually need to flash the IFWI.

Making sure you .tar.gz the leaked system folder and also extract the boot.bin. No guarantees it'll boot, but we should be able to flash back if it fails. Same flash.xml just the old files. I don't see why this wouldn't work though. The Lenovo ROM seems to have no signatures at all, unless it's compiled into the kboot.bin. In which case we still need the engineering bootloader.

I know, however this mode can be entered even with a brick correct? If so that means that it should be harmless to at least try. Then again, no harm in waiting for Paul to try it on his brick.

I can also only find reference to <project name="a/bsp/vendor/intel/mfld_pr2" path="vendor/intel/mfld_pr2" revision="8e611e8f77051ccdad56a60e70135bd99b67863a"/> and <project name="a/bsp/hardware/intel/mfld_pr2" path="hardware/intel/mfld_pr2" revision="6c192a29ae359e8167912fccd38d3aeacabd50f4"/> (Yes I have the repos manifest, no I do not have access to the git repo. It uses ssh and their gerrit uses HTTP authentication so I can't get at the source for the device). Now, both the OSD and the K800 refer to themselves as the mfld_pr2, so I can only assume they are both based of the reference design, the K800 having an upgraded screen and perhaps a few other changes. I don't think that's enough to break compatibility but try at your own risk.

@rickywyatt, sorry it taking so long, I have split to 6 and it is about half way uploaded, it is most likely my crappy talktalk network, it is shockingly bad.

I wonder if the k-boot matches ours ?

x900= SUNRISE_SMB_REV30_V2_B1202_1208.N

K800=SUNRISE_SMB_REV30_V2_1223.B

(I know the above is not kboot just comparing)

i would imagine the k800 to be sim unlocked, maybe if we flash the k800 rom successfully with the flash tool we may be sim free !

if i were you i would hold on for now as the soup thief says, as the san diego is a new platform and everything is trial and error.

you are not gaining anything really by updating just yet so i would wait like i have :-)

but its up to you !

The K800 seems damn near identical apart from the screen, this shows when looking at the strings. I think flashing the bootloader should be okay, but don't hold me to that. In addition, I'm not so sure it's an engineering bootloader as the ROM has been build in release mode and not engineering.
