With some luck it may be similar to the omc. If you're feeling brave, go check out the process on the skate forum.

At the moment the update server only has files for the Roamer. (At least ones starting P736)

Could start by dumping what you can with QPST (partition.mbn would be pretty useful). Its possible it is the same as the roamer.

Hey unrandomsam,

I have the phone, and QPST - all I need is the knowledge of how to dump this for you - can you share?

Thanks,
Adam

I can get BOTH of mine into FTM, but I'm lost as to where in QSPT I'd dump the partition.mbn

Stock recovery, and I can get into FTM. Can run "Backup", but don't think this gives the mbm files you require...

I should point out at this stage the partition table for the Vivacity and the OSF2 are different...

Backup the nvitems (Same way as for skate). Could be they have improved the security but I doubt it.

Here's the qcn file from QPST for the SF2 - http://www.adsar.co.uk/sf2/sf2.zip - seems rather small though...

Don't know if this is error-free but I think I managed to cut the partition.mbn out of the ebi.bin dump I made using the QPST tools.

Attached File  partition.zip   301bytes   4 downloads

does anyone know of any tools that can be used to extract the stuff we need like amss.mbn from the ebi.bin dump?

Try this for Tmobile :

*EDIT removed possible bad link*

make sure you have backed up nvitems with QPST (Same way as for the skate).

This should work (fastboot flash the stock recovery.img if you have clockworkmod installed)

Should get clockworkmod installed to boot and stock recovery

You could probably get away with doing it on an OSF2 but the files are corrupt on the update server for the OSF2.

The method is the same as for the skate :

I cannot see any reason it would fail.

this might be a stupid question, but why cant we just use QPST to write and edited QCN file back to the device?

The unlock isn't in the nvitems afaik

It just gets removed by going through the flasher process (Or its in a part of the nvitems that QPST won't read).
