I can't get my CID back to CWS_001. Any help? I would like to revert back since there is no benefit for me to have SuperCID.

Directory Does Not Exist
Many thanks for the noob guide. All goes will can read the original CID and can see the device in the command prompt. However when writing new CID it reads, "Failure, no directory exits..."

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks

So I'm trying to write my factory CID back and I entered the command exactly as directed, however CMD says "invalid CID". It's the exact same cid I pulled from the Hex writer back when i used the SuperCID scripter. So i don't get it.....

Edit...I JUST saw the comment made above about my problem. Sheesh the one time i don't read everything....

ONLY download ADB tools if you do not already have it!

1. Download adb tools here: download for WINDOWS or download for LINUX or from the attachments below
2. On your pc click on your local disk C: Drive (or D: drive for some) (WINDOWS users: Start > My computer > Local Disk (C)
3. Create a new folder called "adb" and extract the files from into it. Make sure it doesn't create another folder in the adb folder when extracting

4. open command prompt (or terminal for linux) and type "cd" "followed by the path to your adb folder" (windows users can type "cd C:\adb")
5. Ensure your phone is switched on (regular home screen) and connect it by USB in charging mode (Ensure usb debugging is on settings)
6. enter the command "adb devices". This is to confirm your phone is connected. (It should come back with list of devices attached and your serial number)
7. enter the command "adb reboot-bootloader". (nothing further required device WILL reboot in bootloader)

IF it doesn't you can Manually put the phone in the bootloader/hboot mode
Navigate to fastboot by pressing volume down and pressing power button to select (power off > vol down + power on)
It will take you to the fastboot bootloader screen on your phone
Connect your phone via USB
Your Screen should now read fastboot USB

8. Enter the command "fastboot oem readcid". Make a note of your original CID.
9.enter the command "fastboot oem writecid 11111111"
10. enter the command "fastboot read cid" [it should confirm your CID is 11111111]
11. Press the volume down button twice on your phone and navigate to reboot bootloader, then hit power button to reboot the bootloader.
12. Bootloader will also say "CID-11111111" now to confirm You can now flash any ROM you like.


i wrote on step 8 make a note of your original CID

follow all the steps above and then in place of step 9 enter the command "fastboot write cid YOURCID" where YOURCID is the CID you made a note of

so for me this would be "fastboot writecid O2___001"

Can this be used to flash firmware of other CID?

Out of curiosity, what's the difference between this and the other guide with the text file? That one makes you do the same steps. I never really understood why we had to edit the text file if we're going to write in the commands to change CID, MID anyways. Any explanation? Is it that the text file method allows OTAs and this one doesn't?

Again, I've already used the text file method and successfully received OTA 4.2.2 through it, but I was just curious.
