We are trying to determine whether IHOP international edition might brick Spanish (Movistar?) users. NO, please DO NOT flash the new unlockable bootloader yet.

First, I need you to root, as described here or using Gingerbreak or any other method.

Second, we need to know the contents of the
Code:
/sys/firmware/fuse/ReservedOdm
fuse, which you can "cat" in adb shell (after 'su') or open with Root Explorer.

Third, the following files would also be very useful:
/default.prop
/system/default.prop
/system/build.prop
/osh/etc/oshwt-version.txt


Finally, we need to know the signing keys from your build. AS root:
Code:
busybox strings /dev/block/mmcblk0p11 | busybox grep Motorola
(If you get a busybox error, PM me immediately and I will provide a better busybox and update the instructions appropriately.)


PS. It would also help to know your memory layout. If you could turn off your phone and adb this command:
Code:
adb wait-for-device shell "dmesg | /usr/bin/head -100"
Then, turn on your phone, wait, and pastie.org or attach the result in your zip on this post, that would be great.

Use the preinstall method to root. FYI, the Gingrebreak method wouldn't work on mine (Movistar Spain Atrix).

Btw, I've got a full system dump I made before the brick (except data & cache).

So I'll extract the requested files later and share them here with you.

FYI, Pzyduck from M3 managed to obtain the stock sbf for Retail ES, it's published in the Atrix firmware superthread just in case you want to inspect some more files. See here

Here's the info from my phone, dumped by MSU (MST.txt):

07/13/11 09:13:28 Technology: UMTS 3G
07/13/11 09:13:28 Flex File: UCAOLYPB1B8EU049.0R
07/13/11 09:13:28 Software: OLYEM_U4_4.3.3
07/13/11 09:13:28 PRI:

07/13/11 09:13:28 BootLoader: 0007
07/13/11 09:13:28 LangPack:

07/13/11 09:13:28 Carrier Name: N / A

07/13/11 09:13:28 AP ROFSExtension:
07/13/11 09:13:28 AP Flex: GAS_EMEA_USAOLYPRTES_P029

Is the BootLoader: 0007 relevant here?


EDIT: I've attached the files I could get.

webtop version is : OSHWT_U1_6.61.18

Big thanks to both of you!

I looked at the signing keys in that SBF but they looked the same as the other international ones =/ And if your ReservedOdm WAS different than all the other internationals, (and in such a way that could brick you by using their bootloader) I would expect Spanish Movistar users to have (big) problems flashing a LOT of .sbf files!

So, quick question: had you flashed any other, non-Movistar .sbf successfully, before your brick? If so, it is probably not worth bothering nothize to disassemble the bootloader in the Movistar .sbf. But then it is even more a mystery how you bricked =( Let us know if you find another Movistar Atrix...

Nop, I didn't flash any sbf before the IHOP one.

This is not the first sbf I flash (as I owe 5 Motorola phones, and one, the Defy I have had to reflash it quite a lot), but after updating the Motorola drivers and updating also RSD to 5.3.1 yes, it was the first sbf I flashed on a phone...

Actually to me it is a mistery too how it could have bricked. I have never seen that in RSD lite before. Now I'm pretty much afraid to flash any sbf on any phone, would the problem be in my computer (rsd, drivers,...). Don't want to screw another phone! And I don't know how I could safely "test" my setup, without risking another brick.

Well, ideal is you have a person with an Atrix from Movistar so we can look at the ReservedOdm fuse. If it is different, we check out the Movistar bootloader. If not, then I would say we still want to try IHOP on another Movistar before declaring it impossible. Using a PC which has successfully flashed the normal Movistar .sbf to the phone. Hopefully this friend would already have an insurance policy on their phone... wish I had more ideas but yes, it's a mystery. First time I hear of no screen output at all especially if the LED still lights up. Do you have the RSD logs from the day of flash? Though I suspect they say everything went OK, it is still worth to check... Probably in AppData/Local, or?

Hopefully I will get another one, so at least I should be able to get the commands output on it . Don't know yet if I'll have the b*lls to flash it again LOL.

I don't think it's just the screen that isn't working, because I tried to place it in RSD Mode (power + vol up IIRC), and RSD wouldn't see it.

Actually I can get the led light green in very rare conditions, like half-plugging the power-outlet usb cord in the Atrix. By half plugging I mean if I don't plug it totally inside, but I just "start" to plug it. IIRC, it's when I have the battery pulled. The green led lights up, then when I finish to plug the usb cord the led turns off again. That's not much...

Hi there!

On August 13th I received my Atrix 4G from Movistar and went out on holidays, I'd just arrived now and I would like to help.

I have a brand new movistar atrix 4G
System version: 4.4.33.MB860.Retail.en.ES
Android version: 2.2.2
Base band version: N_01.95.00R
Webtop version: OSHWT_U1_6.61.18

I'd read I must be root so I'm going to root the phone and please tell me if you still need my help, since the date of this post its a bit old...

PS: Im going to use OneClick Method to root the phone, it seems pretty easy and fast.
