    All,

    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

    Instructions:

    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...)

    Code:
    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
    Just noticed from this that I had Data turned off. Does this botch things? Anyway... the file output ("blahblah") is attached, compressed due to forum limit. Output from last command:
    Code:
    MODEM MODEL=UMTS
    FW VERSION=MU2.0.30(2004)
    HW EXT ID=UNKNOWN
    HW RADIO TYPE=UMTS
    HW VAR=NA
    IMEI = :-P

    Hi Herrie,

    Just curious...
    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)
