Do you have a backup of all memory blocks including nvram?
That was the first thing I did when I got the phone. It was worth it. It wouldn't be possible to fully revive these memory blocks without having a full backup. So if you don't have yours, your hope is to ask somebody to dump them for you from the same device and then hex-edit to change IMEIs.

If I got the phone back from the official repair store, what's the method of backing up the blocks initially?
How do I backup the files in the Root Explorer?
How should I tell me to prepare for me?? By what method in detail?

Use Read Back in sp flash tool. You must define rows having start address and length for each block. Use MtkDroidTools app to dump blocks map according which you can comfortably define blocks to read back.

Use this app http://forum.xda-dev...p?t=2160490����

Do you have a tutorial site on the process of backing up the blocks and how to store them back?

Yup. I had recently some fun disassembling my son's HP Pavilion DV6 :D One hell of a puzzle :D

haha laptops these days are ridiculous. especially thin ones that have a graphics card. the out vent for my i5 and gt660m is a pain in the arse to take off and reattach to the motherboard. though it made a hell of a difference replacing the stock thermal "paste" (read: burnt dust) with some proper arctic silver. drops the temps by about 4 degrees idle and about 10 degrees in crysis 3 (with the same capped frame rate). defo recommend to anyone if you are confident with your mits :)

I stripped it down and put it in the rice, just tried turning it on, it boots up but the digitizer still seems to have dampness in it as there are spots where it works and where it doesn't I think the battery is completely borked as it was fully charged when I dropped it and now it won't boot unless plugged in :/ . My contract ends in December as well why it couldn't happen then....


take the screen off and let the digitizer sit in the rice. you don't even have to fully dis-attach the cord to do this. sounds like the electronic are fine.

Thanks man, I did pretty much this. Although as i was taking the screen off I snapped the synaptic thingymabob, so any hope of getting it working again are gone me thinks. I could always get a demmic skate off ebay and butcher it for parts :P

Yer they seem to be pretty cheap atm.

i was guna sell mine on the bay. but with a pretty badly scratched screen it wasn't really worth it.

guna see if i can get cex to take it for their quoted £58 on the website (poor condition unlocked). if not. i'll probably keep it as a music player.

if you can pick one up cheap its worth a shot. also you get immense satisfaction when you fix a "broken phone(/any electronic device). When i brought my old blade back from the death it was such a shame to then sell it. though it did mean it was worth about 5 times more than it was broken (just using a soldering iron and and screw drivers).

My friend in Taiwan said the MtkDroidTools can not support on dumping the files for mtk 6589 devices? Is it true? If not, where could I find the version to dump the files?
