Default Any hope for a ENG HBOOT?

Do we have any hope of finding an ENG HBOOT? I would really like to change my modelid back to stock.

Can't this be done with the hex edit method posted in the development thread?

I checked the HBOOT and it's listed as PN0731000, not as PN073**** as listed in bootloader.

PN073**** = SuperMID

those who are S-OFF threw sonic have it, with the only way to get it back to stock is with ENG hboot, or maybe you can flash the RUU go back to S-ON then use rumrunner if you REALLY wanted it back to stock.

Yes, I know the significance of this MID. I doubt that the RUU will overwrite the modelid. I believe ENG HBOOT is the only way.

No, but setting it back to S-ON, *may* change it.

When S-OFF'd by Sonic's method, the JavaCard cleared the block (I believe it's referred to as the s26 block) which contains things like the S flag, MID, and CID. Turning S-ON will change the flag, but will not write the MID because it can be one of several MIDs (since the ONE is on several carriers).

nope... cid and mid will remain unchanged when you s on.

as far as the eng hboot,i *think* you can use the one from the dna forum,that the other one folks have used. it works on the sprint variant,and since sonic has flashed the gsm 1.44 hboot i would venture to guess it would work here too. despite that, id not really recomend trying it. it wont boot the phone due to the partition differences,and it is a freakish experience,as sometimes you dont see a bootloader,just a grey screen.

if you hang in there well look for the mid block.

if someone has one thats going back anyway,you can try it. youll need to:
-make up your own zip file to install the eng hboot
-fastboot oem writemid xxxxx
-immediately reinstall your old hboot,so have a copy of that ready and in your fastboot directory
