  1. landreths added a post in a topic rooting Galaxy s   

    Hello all
     
    I have just been given an Australian Galaxy S (I9000) and have had some trouble getting root - I wonder if there is a root for it as the numbers seem diferent to the ones in europe that I see on here.
     
    GT-I9000
    Firmware 2.2
    Baseband I9000DTJP3
    Kernal version 2.6.32.9
    root@SE-S604#7
    Build Number FROYO.DTJP5
     
    Can anyone point me in the right direction to how I can root and what can be done to the phone after that to improve is operation?
     
    Thanks

  2. landreths added a post in a topic [GUIDE] How to unbrick the G300   

    Hello Modaco
    I think I have a similar problem to many but am unsure which fix option/road to go down
    This is what I have found so far
    I bought an G300+ from ebay.com.au and it is running gingerbread 2.3.6 and has a baseband 109808
    I have managed to root the phone using instructions from www.huaweig300.com
    All of the other instructions were followed and worked ok until the pink bar stopped and 'load failed' while trying to load the official ICS firmware - also the phone froze at this point and needed the battery removed to proceed - the phone restarted again to the old firmware which I guess is good.... The tutorial asked me to copy the 'middle file' into the dload folder onto the phone's sd card overwriting the one that was there and I did so and retried the firmware load
    This time the pink bar went quickly further along but again stopped at stage 2/2 displaying 'load fail' and the battery needed to be removed and replaced before it would allow a restart of the phone
    BTW - I have also found that I have Samsung memory inside the phone - I am not sure if this has any bearing on anything, but it might...
    OK - which fix route do I take???
     
    Thanks for your help i advance

    Hello Dr Dre
    This sounds promising
    However being quite NooB I will need step by step direction
    Or maybe a link to a good page with directions for what I need to do
    I did try searching for flashrec but could not see the way to go...

    Thanks for your help

    I was almost certain that it was - however I did a one stage try the factory reset - could that have set me back to scratch?
    the 'about phone' details are...
    firmware version 1.5
    baseband version 63.18.55.06EU_6.35.06.18
    Kernal version2.6.27-8dd6deee htc-kernel@and18-2
    Build number 2.73.405.5 146733 CL#61267 release-keys
    Software version 1.0.0.A6288

    Which seems to be saying when I did the factory reset, it wiped the modoco stuff that was on there... bummer!

    Where do I go from here?

    Hi Dr Dre

    Well I have made some progress,
    I have cooked a new recovery image and it uploads fine to my Hero but not my wifes...

    I managed to mount the SD card and download the image OK
    When I power on with the home key down I still get the ! in the triangle but
    I have discovered if I push home + power again it advances to some sort
    of boot options menu, however there are only three options (unlike mine which has lots).
    they are; reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    and below that in yellow it says E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    I renamed the image to image.zip and tried again to apply sdcard:update.zip command
    The process gets part way as follows
    Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:No signature (730 files)
    E:Verification failed
    Instalation aborted

    I'm thinking that the SD card has got a problem with its format
    How do I setup the SD with the correct format / partitions etc

    Any other ideas?

    Oh Oh, Trouble
    Hello there,

    My Wifes HTC Hero has suddenly developed a problem ( drops incomming and outgoing calls randomly)
    It is running Modaco 3.2, so I thought it might be a good Idea to reload the ROM from the SD
    I reboot it holding the home key down but instead of the various options there is a ! in a triangle with a dead phone laying below it on screen.

    I am thinking that this is not a good sign...
    The phone is locked up on this screen and the only way I can reboot is to pop the battery out and start with out holding the home key

    Is there another way to reload the ROM than the power button + home method that I could try

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Goldcards... What the...
    Hello there

    I have an HTC Hero which when I bought it from Ebay came with te SD card removed. I went to the supermarket and bought a 2Gb SD card and poped it in no problems..
    Or so I thought. Since then I have been reading on Modaco various snippets about Goldcard SD cards and am now wondering if I need to have the sd card set up like this.

    Can some wise one please fill in the gaps in the Goldcard mystery for me.

    1 What is a goldcard?
    2 What will it do for me?
    3 How do I go about making one? (Small steps please)


    Thanks

    Hi again Dr Dre

    The next thing I want to try is installing the 3.2 Rom you mentioned above

    Trouble is, I really have no idea what steps to follow...
    (I have been trying to read up on what to do - but most instructions
    are written as if I had a stock hero, which I no longer do...)

    Is there a step by step for where I am at with my phone?

    Thanks for your patience :P

    Hi Dr Dre

    I have my Malyasian handset with me at work which I bought on Ebay earlier this week.
    Looking at the 'about menu' it seems that the previous owner has already
    rooted the rom... I think...??

    here are the details
    Model No: HTC Hero
    Firmware version: 1.5
    Baseband version: 63.18.55.06EU_6.35.06.18
    Kernal Version: 2.6.27-mck-teknologist-1.9 root@neutrino
    Build Number: MoDoCo Custom Rom 3.0 Core, SSH Password NeQTCW
    Software Version: 1.0.0.A6288

    Can you tell me what has been done to the phone by the previous owner? also is there further inhancements that you would recommend?
    Can I return it to the original rom from Google if I wanted to?
    Are you able to explain why the google maps Icon is missing altogether on my phone?

    Thanks for your help

    Noobie question
    My wife and I bought two HTC Hero handsets
    My wife's one originated from Europe (not sure which country)
    while mine was from Malaysia

    Is there any difference with what can be done with either of these handsets? (which ROM will work with either handset)

    Thanks
