HTH....

Running Kies 2.0.0.11014_49

HIDSWVER I9000XXJPO/I9000OXAJPO/I9000XXJPP/I9000XXJPO

Product Code GT-I9000HKDTMU

Model Name GT-I9000

Doesn't work unfortunately - it offers me an upgrade, appears to download the file then gives the Disconnected error.

I've also tried manually editing the registry as per kies 1.5 but no more luck.

I've tried on 2 PCs too.

HIDSWVER: I9000BUJP7/I9000GVD2JP5/I9000BUJP5/I9000BUJP7 (SofwareRev is same)
FW: I9000BUJP7/I9000GVD2JP5(CSC)/I9000BUJP5(modem)
PCode: GT-I9000HKDVD2 (VD2)
Kies: v2.0.0.11014_49
OS: Win7 Ultimate 64bit

I checked my registry but to no avail. Also tried deleting DeviceDB key to force kies into reconstructing it. It doesn't offer the fw upgrade option at all.

At least it's good to know someone is trying to develop a way to spoof kies 2.0. Did the patch work with any previous versions of kies 2.0?

I just got some another idea: could we try to hack ProductCode on device instead of on Kies side?

AFAIU ProductCode == CSC. I've googled we can change CSC in following ways:
1) *#272*HHMM# on Android 2.1 and older
2) *#272*IMEI# on Android 2.2 and newer
3) Opening preconfing with ADB
4) Editing /efs/nv_data.bin

Would it make Kies detecting different ProductCode?

There is still one more thing we have to consider: what if Kies detects our changed ProductCode but also firmware versions that were never released for given ProductCode?

I have thought about it too. But we still need to change the PDA and PHONE aswell. But I have not yet located where they are stored. My guess is it's hard coded somewhere. Still the drivers need to take it from somewhere, the question is where.

There is something like
getBasebandVersion, but I can't track RILRequest, how is is reading RIL_REQUEST_BASEBAND_VERSION... That could show us some file with baseband version maybe.

I have had some progress.

I have managed to change all necessary codes in the phone to be able to spoof Kies. This time I passed the step that the patch didnt!

Unfortunately it's not that simple, it requires root and changes system properties. But it's all reversible. I think I'll try to make an app of it during next week. First is a final exam on Monday.

watch this space.

well, it's much more fun to develop android application then study for an exam :P

I have successfully switched from XEN to XEE and to DBT.

I'm almost done, just some more bug testing. I'll probably release it tonight

The application is done! I just had to make sure that it's completely reverisble before releasing anything. I have now successfully changed from XEN to XEE and back to XEN.

But as you might understand, messing with system files is always dangerous and the possibility for a brick is always present. Hopefully this will not occur I'm doing my best to avoid that.

For everyones safety I would recommend doing a manual backup of /system/build.prop and the complete /efs folder including nv_data.bin

The app does this automatically to the internal SDCARD, but just to be on the safe side I would recommend a manual backup to the computer aswell.

There is two steps where a reboot is required between. The app will tell you what to do.

So here it is: SpoofFw - requires ROOT and BusyBox


Direkt market link

If you get problems to connect to Kies after you used this program, try remove the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Samsung\Kies\Devic eDB"

Please let me now if it works out for you.
