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
Attached Files
File Type: zip palm_nv_backup.zip (44.2 KB, 1 views) Email Attachment

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)
