I think it's like jcase said, it shows that it's changed, but it actually isn't.

If that's the case, I'd say you started a premature thread ...

Anyways, I learned a lot in one day..

Thanks bud.

Re: [BOOTLOADER] SuperCID 11111111
Yeah, it seems that /dev/block/mmcblk0p7 has a secure flag set that prevents writing to it. In order for us to get SuperCID, we need to develop a workaround for that first. At least we know now where the CID is kept. So that's something to work with.

Yeah, Maarten should update his post to indicate that it is unlikely to work.

Tutorial
A few things I've learned about this partition ( /dev/block/mmcblk0p7 ).
  • It has a secure_flag that acts like the system write protection. This flag is set from the bootloader before the kernel loads. So even though you appear to be able to overwrite the file using dd, it does nothing.
  • The partition houses the CID, IMEI, and radio config data ( rcdata.img ).
  • It is entirely likely that S-OFF is achieved through this file as well.
  • A hardware device exists that claims to support setting the Desire X to SuperCID. Others have achieved this on other devices using a procedure probably such as the one described here.
  • Your local mobile phone repair technician may be able to get you SuperCID if they have such a device.
  • Software hacks have been devised to defeat the secure_flag on other HTC devices by means of a kernel module.
  • It's possible that such solutions might work on the Desire X platform, but the software would need to be ported and tested by an experienced kernel hacker/developer.
  • SuperCID is desirable for two main reasons. First, it's good for non-European users who need to use the European RUU (the only one we have available atm) to restore their phones to stock ROM. Second, it will potentially enable the Facepalm S-OFF folks to port their S-OFF utility to the Desire X.

So when will a software solution to SuperCID be available for the Desire X? Probably not for a while. A hardware solution is reported to exist, and may be the only solution for now.

I will look into making the module for this phone soon. Thanks for the informative post
