Fixing VZW GSM/UMTS - Asking AT&T & EU 2.2.4 users for help!
I think I bought myself some lemons, by getting VZW Pre3's and trying to get them working on GSM/UMTS here in the Netherlands
Seems like the GSM/UMTS firmware is quite flaky and causes a lot of issues (I only see 1 out of 3 supported networks on the 1800Mhz band for example).
I have some ideas on how to fix this using the Qualcomm tools QPST and QXDM but would need some backup files/info from people with AT&T and/or EU Pre3 with 2.2.4 webOS.
The things I need are actually quite straight forward to start with, so if anyone could post the requested info following the steps below, that would be very helpful and appreciated
1. Make sure your phone is in Devmode
2. Go to Linux Commandline (WOSQI or Novaterm would do the trick)
3. cd /usr/bin
4. PmModemUpdater -b
5. Wait for the process to finish
6. Copy the file from /var/firmware/palm_nv_backup.txt
7. PmModemInfo -e
8. Post palm_nv_backup.txt and the output of PmModemInfo -e here (You can actually leave out your IMEI and MEID from the PmModemInfo since I don't need those )
Thanks in advance!

Know this is a bit late, but saw no one answered. If you still want it...
From PmModemUpdater -b... (done in XTerm, so don't have exact copy...)
HW_VERSION = 2057A000 MOB_MODEL = fc5 EX_BUILD_ID = MU2.0.40(3004) RADIO TYPE = UMTS HW EXT ID = PVT HW RADIO TYPE = UMTS HW VAR = NA Firmware version from Modem is 3004... Disable memory protect ERROR:disable memory protect failed, Inappropriate ioctl for device No palm_nv_item.txt file in tar file Modem is in Digital Offline mode... Start reading NV item from modem (0 to 7200,8000 to 9250).....9250 Done! 2390 NV items have been saved to [blahblah] Your device is ready to use
MODEM MODEL=UMTS FW VERSION=MU2.0.30(2004) HW EXT ID=UNKNOWN HW RADIO TYPE=UMTS HW VAR=NA IMEI = :-P

Does data work for the GSM part? Which network, GSM, UMTS, HSDPA? Is the CDMA sim removeable / changeable?
I didn't see this post, if you need anything, drop me an pn. I have the US Pre3 with EU firmware (wanted the 16gb)
