it prolly can be hex edited. we just need to find the block hboot is reporting from. ive been meaning to look into this for you guys,lol.. just have been busy lately.

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
