Default Hacks for WIND Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4G?

I picked up a WIND Samsung Galaxy S 4G today. I looked in the Android Dev thread here and I don't see anything specifically for this phone.

The model number is T-959W so I don't want to try anything with hacks/roms etc meant for the T-Mobile version.

I'd be happy to supply a dump of my phone for any devs who want to play around and help us here in the great white north!

Thanks

System dump would be nice if you can provide it. I'd advice against installing any mods you found here. Good thing you're cautious

Great, thanks! I have never done a dump before so I'll have to look into how to do it. I will let you know when I do.

I see it has 8 gig internal, we only got 2 there's a tutorial somewhere for system dumps, let me find you the link.
You need to be rooted I believe.

Default Source files found

I found the following source files from opensource.samsung.com

SGH-T959W_NA_Opensource.zip

SGH-T959W_NA_GB_Opensource.zip

Will these help XDA with support for the Wind SGS4G?

Sure but idk if our devs are gonna build you guys stuff. Also, go to sampro.pl, it is a polish site so use Google chrome to translate it, then create an account for the site, go firmware downloads for your model if you see. If you do, then post a link to the latest version.

Default Imaging phone

I have heard that there may be an update in August. It may be prudent to wait for this update before capturing a ROM image, in case important fixes are made.

I guess a good question would be whether anyone has had any experience flashing T-Mobile SGH-959v ROMs on to this device.

Another avenue could be to ask someone inside Samsung whether they changed much between models.

Absolutely! I'm currently taking a little break (gotta find a job... like two weeks ago.), but when the dust settles, I'll take a little look at the source and see if we can help out.

What you could start with is a diff between the SGH-T959V-TMB_GB_Opensource.zip and the SGH-T959W_NA_GB_Opensource.zip drops.
