I tried following this tutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2322820 to change my Modelid for OTA update. Download the files on the post and followed the given example, but when I tried to writemid, all I get is this:
C:\platform-tools>fastboot oem writemid PN0712000
...
(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!
OKAY [ 0.004s]
finished. total time: 0.004s


and when I run fastboot getvar all, I get this:
C:\platform-tools>fastboot getvar all
(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.57.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: N/A

Write super CID back again, Super CID allows you do get updates, if its the sense 6 update your after you wont get it cos they've found a problem / bug and pulled it from the servers until further notice, people who did get it have the bug.

C:\platform-tools>fastboot oem writecid 11111111
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: -1
(bootloader) Input CID is super CID
(bootloader) Start Verify: -1
OKAY [ 0.078s]
finished. total time: 0.078s


But when I input getvar, CID is still blank

i'm pretty sure you have a problem with MID not CID, try writing your original MID back, and hope for the best... and make sure it's your original MID, down to every single character (not an extra 0, and not a missing 0, etc), exactly the way it was before.

C:\platform-tools>fastboot oem writemid PN0771***
...
(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!
