Default Xt1032 imei repair!

Hello All,

Seems UE has Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400,

which is a the same as the S3 mini/HTC mini.

I have a question, if anyone can shed some light on it.

In the Android FS, there is a file imei.bin usually in /data/rfs/data/ some path, can't remember exactly.


If this file was to be modified, how would things work? Or is this file only for the AP level stuff, because ultimately the modem connects to the network, i'm guessing this file is just read out of the modem at boot time?

what is MSL? I have seen a number of commercial tools available which can repair IMEI, just wondering why they can do it.

Would I need to be rooted in order to read/write to the modem fd?


Thanks AJ

Hello,


Please could you advise:

" There is not rfs on our g "

I managed to get QPST talking to the modem, by making the modem go to bootloader mode, then set it to BP tools...


I got 3 USB ports one of which is QC Diag Port, I installed drivers..


Then started NV Editor and read the PAGE files from the modem......

I changed some digits, then tried to write. QPST does not return any error or issues, however nothing has changed on the device.

I am guess the modem FD (part where the NVRAM is stored) is READ_ONLY as the UE is not rooted.


Thanks Aj
