Recommended Posts

Where did you get your phone, and have you done anything special with it? Yes, that's your CID, and that could be very interesting...

He may have found the "DEV" CID????

We already know that 1111111 is a super CID from earlier hacks on f.e. the Hero.

But we have no way of getting that on our desires :(

Norwegian Desire:

CID: HTC__Y13

ROM: 1.15.405.3

I'm running a 1.21 ROM (MoDoCo r3) right now though, so it looks like the ROM string in misc is whatever was on the device when it was new(?)

Thanks guys so much for this, well done!!

Sorry, could not reply earlier had to get some food with the missus, she was already complaining me sitting in front of the computer all afternoon hitting the refresh button every second.

So here the story how I got to the phone:

I wanted this phone for a time, could not order it online so I went to a THREE store. But the only desire they had was the one which was their demo unit, after some discussions with a few people and offerings of many other phones, which all are "much better" and "newer" with "bigger displays" with "better OS's". I still insisted on buying this phone and I said to them if they don't sell me one today I will find someone who will sell it. So finally they offered me their demo unit, and I took it. I then was looking at getting a custom rom on it, I tried first a early MCR, can not remember which one. Went then to XDA tried Evil Desire rom, and finally ended up with Pays rom version 1.5, and then I read about the usb bricks and stopped flashing new roms.

I update the radio to 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.02_2.

And that's it.

Oh of course I rooted with the goldcard method. Using a Windows 7 x64 machine HxD.

But I think I might just have had luck to get this phone. As I think many of you guys went through all these steps as well and they should not change the CID as far as I understand the whole thing. But bricking/recovery changes it. Ahh I don't understand it at all.

If I can be of any help with my phone let me know, and try to explain it in some kind of a newbiesh way. I have some experience using Linux and Windows, programmed in C but don't know anything about kernels and android development.

Hi,

thanks for the good work, being free to flash new roms makes it so much easier. My device was never bricked, but I tried to get my misc.img. I did it with the phone running via adb, I attached it. However, I could not find my CID in there, so I tried it with the fastboot command with following result:

... INFOsetup_tag addr=0xA0000100 cmdline add=0x8E07D98C

I have not seen this here until now, is my CID now 11111111 ? And what means super CID?

Or did I do something wrong?

this is great finding... does anybody noticed that he has propably full write access to all partitions ? can you please do for me a small test ? can you try the following in normal boot :

adb shell

mount -o remount,rw /system

mkdir /system/test

ls -l /system

rmdir /system/test

and paste here the output ?

su

cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/mtd0.img

From a terminal app inside a booted phone. mtd0.img will be your backup, stored on your SD card.

It's only been stated 10 times or so.

Usb-bricked misc.img generator is online here : http://ks33673.kimsufi.com/misc/

you have to provide your cid and your rom version.

it's a quick and dirty generator written in php, but it should work :( I did some diffs with a good misc.img and files generated and it's ok...

it's lite, so you can access it thru your device.

have nice unbricking...

edit : change script, so the downloaded filename is now mtd0.img

edit2 : source code here

mtd0.zip

u can state that 100 times and it will still make no sense to me, im a new user and dont know what a terminal app is. im guessing su and cat are the commands?

Might have been better to phrase the question differently to express that you wanted a little more explanation. :(

Download Better Terminal from the Market and launch it

Enter su and hit enter to get superuser access for that session - you may get a prompt asking if you want to give it superuser access if you haven't used it before.

Then enter the second line - cat will read a file and output it, since we specified the > operator, to the file path we specify at the end.

su <- superuser mode

cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/mtd0.img <- read mtd0 out to mtd0.img on the SD card.

Make sense?

Good news for you, maddoxus. :( You got nice and lucky.

is there any particular reason why you are using 'cat source > destination' instead of 'cp source destination' ?

no, i use cat because in the first post the command is cat, and as i know there is ni difference between cp and cat without parametres

but the copy of these two files to the data folder is ok

the probleme is when i try the misc command i just get the error message "[1] illegal instruction

no way to unbreak for me, or i missing something

give me help please
