Hi everyone. It's my first post, but I've been following your activity with some interest. I did a little research on goldcards and QMAT/PSAS.
Turns out that as of a year ago anyway, the PSAS dev team was two people: viperbjk and cmonex, who are members of this forum. I also discovered that the latest version of PSAS only generates goldcards for older devices like the G1 unless you register the software and pay viperbjk a fee. Here's some of the drama surrounding that decision (not a full link since I'm not yet allowed): showthread.php?t=485364&page=21
Before there was QMAT, there was a Perl script called typhoonnbfdecode.pl which was developed by itsme, also a forum member. This script was written for HTC Windows Mobile devices, but I gather that the CID encryption algorithm is similar for our Android devices. I think that QMAT/PSAS is just a another implementation of the algorithm, although extended for newer devices (i.e. some extra reverse engineering that viperbjk & cmonex are now charging for). There's lots of old information in the forum about the itsme Perl script, but the links for the Perl script seem broken. However I found a copy on the web (don't know if its the latest version), and it is attached.
So anyway, it seems to me that we either need to rediscover how to make a goldcard for the newer Android devices (starting with the itsme script), or start paying off the PSAS dev team...
