[Q] Modem from FTF to CWM
Firstly, sorry for bad english. Although I'll try to do my best here, I'm not american, nor english and I'm not very used with your language. My problem is simple and have been asked here before. The problem is that they guy who asked help wasn't very specific with his problem.
I have a ST25A, a latin american version of our Xperia U, which differs from your ST25i in its baseband (the modem). The ROMs we find here are all for ST25i and the baseband included is for the ST25i. Actually it kinda works with the ST25A model, but the signal is weak (even worse if you're not richie enough to pay for the best mobile service, which is my case).
Then I tried to flash the original ROM baseband for the ST25a, but for some reason, I wasn't able to boot my cellphone in flashmode. I tried everything I could try all around xda and other forums. Nothing worked. So, I couldn't use Flashtools to flash the baseband.
In another attempt, I tried to convert the original ROM from FTF (Sony format), to CWM, but I wasn't able to do that by myself (I'm not pro at this stuff and a friend of mine who knows about it a little better than me couldn't help either).
So I'm here creating this thread as my last attempt to have my ST25a with a CyanogenMod ROM, because without the right baseband it won't be possible. Below is a link of Sony's ST25a stock ROM:
(It's uploaded in my Skydrive account, so it shall not be a problem to download it)
I'm here to ask someone to convert it into something I can flash the baseband in my Sony Xperia U without needing the flashtool. To open the FTF file I used WinRAR (that actually seems to open every container format).
I don't know if I made myself clear, but it's not only a problem of mine, it probably is a problem all latin american owner of a Xperia U will have. If someone can help to extract the baseband and give me a tip on how to make it work in my Xperia U, I would really appreciate. If I didn't make myself clear enough for you to understand my problem, don't hesitate asking.
Thanks for your time and sorry for disturbing, oh, and Merry Christmas, ppl!
