Flashing Epic to Boost, quick question before purchasing donor
I have been in the process of attempting to flash my Epic 4g to boost for about a week now (with very limited time each day). Thanks to the help of some awesome people here on the forum I have made quite a bit of progress. I have however, hit a wall. I am currently attempting to use a Samsung Replenish which I purchased with GB 2.3.6 pre-installed. I have gotten to the point where I need to extract the HA/AAA keys from the donor and it is locked down tighter than (insert random virgin joke here...). I have tried two methods, method 1- reading NV Items 465,466,1192, and 1194, this method gives me four text files, each of which say access denied toward the top and give me nothing but goose eggs. method 2- using QXDM typing password (spc) which works fine, I have the right SPC and it accepts it, but then when I type the requestnvitemread ds_mip_ss_user_prof command (and I have tried prof 1 and prof 0) it says "error recieved from target". I am not familiar with anything more technical than what I explained, I know my way around these phones a bit and am technically savvy, but I do not know any code or anything like that.
I stated in my first post that I dont mind having to spend money to get my epic to boost but I would like to avoid it. With that being said, I would like to know if there is anything that I can try before pulling the trigger on a Sanyo Incognito (which to my understanding is one of the easier phones to use for this process). I have read that flashing back to froyo might help, but I cant find anything on flashing the Replenish back to Froyo as no one seems to want to do it. If anyone has any advice on flashing back to Froyo or anything else that I can try to get those keys I would be eternally grateful (well maybe for a day or two, after that I'd probably forget...anyways...)
thanks in advance for any help!!
