I looked over the internet and fount a msi file. Hopefully that's the official file.
I really appreciate your tutorial and letting us know such upgrade exist. By the time I have watched this tutorial, I have already installed KhalPower's SteelEpicBlueV4.

Thanks for sharing!

Question Stripped cbw.zip and current CinBell zip
Hi.

reverendkjr, did you modify the imgs in your stripped rom package? The cbw.zip linked in the youtube video isn't the same as the current cbw.zip found in Cincinnati Bell's xt720_files.zip. Or maybe they've updated their rom? I downloaded it today. md5sum successfully verifies both sets of files, but the sums are different between the zips.

*.md5 files from my cbw.zip:
Code:
3f28c64431c12075f8d1bcaae8f5ee51  boot.img
b54670747a8d8daeddc7eafee75c10f7  system.img
*.md5 files from reverendkjr's cbw.zip:
Code:
2c8a3b5452f9eddfa46217e61679d0d7  boot.img
7937a9c06a7d9794f3ba736ea21c7058  system.img
This is how I extract cbw.zip:
Code:
wget http :// www ultimobile net/XT720_Files/xt720_files.zip
7z e ACSetup.msi _883B25C497AFEB46BFAEB0A3A4F6A8FF
7z e _883B25C497AFEB46BFAEB0A3A4F6A8FF _BF775DB53FAC4E61B74E061A2095B331
mv _BF775DB53FAC4E61B74E061A2095B331 cbw.zip
I don't know how to open .img files, so I can't dig deeper.

Revs zip only contains nandroid image and a couple small things can't remember exactly, and the one from Cincinnati bell contains a whole bunch of crap, that's why theirs is like 3 times the size as revs.

That's quite interesting. FYI to extract .img files, use unyaffs. I think I saved the msi from the day they released it. If I can find it, I'll compare the sums.

CBW's has a flashing tool that makes it easier for someone who doesn't know what they are doing to flash it easier, it does the root and openrecovery steps automatic so that's why it's much bigger. We just use need the nandroid file here as we are mostly already rooted and have open recovery installed. In other words cbw package has training wheels lol

pydave isn't saying the size is different. The files have changed.

md5sums compute identifying strings (i.e. 2c8a3b5452f9eddfa46217e61679d0d7) that can be used as fingerprints. If the md5sums are different, then the content of files is different. What pydave has found is that the nandroid files don't match what rev posted anymore. So, possibly ultimobile's modified or updated something. The md5sum of the system.img could easily have changed simply by rev making making a backup nandroid and posting it. But, there's no way we can change the boot.img because of the bootlock.

What's strange is that the md5 sum of the boot.img again doesn't match anything I've seen before and it's different from the first one that CBW shipped.

I'm going to see if I can find out some more about this kernel. I'm still looking for the msi I downloaded the day it was released by CBW to compare.
