You get 0's for your IMEI on a TW based rom too? (all the ones based on KJ6). Make sure that it's really that the files in /efs are bad before you try anything else.

You'll wanna go back to stock and check your IMEI, make phone calls, send texts and make sure that all of these features are working, after this you'll need to follow the instructions posted here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki..._CyanogenMod_7

Remember you WILL need to use the efs-backup.zip and efs-restore.zip files in CWM to make sure that your efs files get restored properly on cm7 with the cm7 kernel.

I did this for the first time today. Worked as prescribed!
Just flash the backup zip before you heimdall the boot.img, and flash the recovery zip after pulling the battery after the heimdall. Then cwm installed cm7 after formating /system and doing a factory reset/wipe cache.

Thanks for these, FB!

I would agree thanks FB. Once you have that backup though feel free to flash away. In other words once the backup is put in place it will stay there. No need to reflash it. It's hard to make things simple but here you go


heimdall flash --kernel boot90000000.img



I think that might work for som

When I start from bml, I do the following:
  1. boot to recovery
  2. mount usb storage
  3. copy over efs-backup, efs-restore, and cm7 cwm zip files.
  4. flash fb's efs-backup zip
  5. power off phone
  6. use a usb jig to get dlmode, plug in the usb cable.
  7. heimdall flash --kernel boot.img
  8. after the phone reboots and you see the galaxy s screen pull the usb cable and pull the battery.
  9. boot to recovery and flash efs restore zip
  10. mounts & storage -> wipe /boot, /data, /cache, and /system... go back
  11. factory reset & wipe cache
  12. install the cm7 zip

Some of that may be my own extra paranoia, but that's how I roll. It always works for me (unless it's some experimental crap I'm not sure will boot or not )

I messed around with bluetooth tonight and found something interesting with bthid that may prove interesting. After turning the "#if 0" to an "#if 1", I didn't get the same behavior. I didn't run strace, so it might be interesting to see what changed in the user-space side.
