[Q] Couple of questions
I have a X10 since september, but I'm kind of a noob with all this X10-modding thing. Please move my topic if it's not in the right place. I have a couple of questions, and sometimes you're gonna think that I'm an idiot, but I prefer to be sure of what I have to do exactly before I do anything.
So my X10 is branded with a Orange France rom, which is still in firmware 2.0.A.0.504 (baseband 2.0.46). I don't have multitouch at all and it's laggy.
First, I read this topic
about backing up my current rom (in case I have a problem and/or I have to send it to repair). I have downloaded Bin4ry's flash tool and seen that I can use it to extract .sin files from FILE_XXXXXXX files. Is this method still ok ? The link to the jerpelea SIN Reconstructor is dead, so is it possible to reconstruct the ftf file with Bin4ry's flash tool ? If yes, what files do I have to put in the bundle (I don't obtain the same files as in the tutorial) ? And when I get the ftf file, in order to get my phone back to its original firmware, do I simply have to add the ftf file in the firmware folder and then flash ?
I also have another set of questions ^^. For example, if I root my X10, then I modify the build.prop file (as described in this topic
) to match a generic code, and then repair my phone through PC Companion / SEUS, will I get a generic rom ? And if I want to switch back to my original firmware, is putting back the original code and updating enough ?
About basebands now : if I download a rom, is the baseband file already included or do I have to include its .ftf file too ? How exactly does this work ? (I have read a lot of people saying that it's important to have a baseband matching your rom, but I didn't get how to actually do it
). I assume that SEUS / PC Companion do the baseband update automatically ?
I have read quite a lot of tutorials, not always understanding every step. Thanks a lot to those who will answer my noob questions...
