Hi all,

I've been trying to get a used i317M to work on the Wind network. I tried several times to use the .qcn AWS unlock here with no success (only "Wind Away" network found). So I then tried to edit a NV text backup taken with the Qualcomm NV tools in Gaz's "EFS Professional" and write it back. Big mistake.

I'm now locked out of using any Qualcomm tools, the SPC isn't 000000 anymore apparently. "Wind Away" is still the only network I can see.

I've tried flashing radios (only Canadian i317M versions), and roms (like these root stocks). No improvement.

Using the CDMA Workshop free NV-items reader, I got another .txt dump (except for items secured by the new SPC). Comparing the two shows changes in many places across the NV settings. I can share the text files (minus IMEI) if it will help narrow down the problem.

So, what should I try now? I have:
  • Root
  • .qcn backup of NV-items
  • .txt backup of NV-items
  • TWRP recovery working
  • efs backup (taken after the NV screwup... yeah i know)

I don't have
  • SPC
  • MSL (typing getprop shows no MSL in the list)
  • an intact Knox flag

Any ideas?

This is just a guess but maybe reflashing the modems will help
