i dont know what else to say
The Star 8000 uses WCDMA 2100 only and the frequencies you would need would be WCDMA 850/1700/1900. With that I have read that this is hardware dependent and I have also read that it is hardcoded into the CPU (if that is indeed true).
Anyway, what would be the chances to hacking into the hardware to enable WCDMA 850/1700/1900 or at least one of those frequencies with some success? Has it ever been attempted before too?
