There are 2 different Radios:
Radios that you can flash using HardSPL
For installing a RADIO ROM you need to use HardSPL on your device: it won't hardreset your device.
Changing the Radio in the ROM
: XBmod is working on a CAB to change the Radio in the ROM, thus in the future you will be able to send the CAB and change the Radio.
At present use the instructions below.
To use a different Software Radio you need to change the Part00.bin
in the 7004 Data.zip
and start the process to 7720 all over again... As for the regular HD2 radio we can continue to flash away
Download the radio you want to use
You'll get a part00.bin
In the V1 or V2 ROM you can find a data.zip file
Replace in data.zip the part00.bin
with the one you downloaded
Go through the usual process of installing the ROM
For EU Leo users who want to try 5.51 (without the t) see this post
Simple guide to replace the radio:
- Download 7zip from the web and install it.
- Download V2 rom.
- Download my radio attached.
- Extract attached radio to a folder (inside is part00.bin)
- Extract V2 rom to a folder
- Go to the extracted rom folder.
- In there you'll find Data.zip
- Open this folder with 7zip.
- Open the folder where you saved my attached radio (part00.bin)
- Simply drag file part00.bin inside 7zip window
- Wait a few moment and you're done
- Just to be sure, if it went well you'll see that file part00.bin has 2 dates changed
The Radio I’m sure will become a topic in its own right! what you have to remember is that there is no right or wrong Radio, it’s all about how close you are to a tower, Signal strength, country etc etc etc, right now to change the ROM radio you need to flash, hopefully someone can figure out how we can flash it without needing to Flash the ROM, perhaps a CAB.....
RADIO TABLE (need Data from folk for this)
If you have SIM locked device from your mobile provider, before you upgrade to WP7 you must unlock the device (if you want SIM lock free). unlocking not working under WP7. For unlocking you must have unlock code... in most case, you must buy this code from any trusted GSM unlock site) or contact your carrier and ask them for an unlock code, typically they will give you one.
Thanks to dxdy
SD cards and unlocking them.
Once WP7 formats your SDcard, your computer won't read them since WP7 locked them this is part of the security feature built into WP7.
But if you need to, you can format the cards in certain devices, you should use one of thre following reported methods
Nokia N or E series
Nokia Symbian OS phone
PDA like 5250
If you don’t have one of the above and rather than buying a new SD card, borrow one from a freind, or even go to a store and ask the store guy, and ask him if its ok that they let you use one to do it.
Custom and Special CAB's
(this will install the unlock tool for your sd card (providing the possibility of dualboot))
(as always a second CAB removing the above function "unlock tool" Warning your SDCard will be relocked at reboot resulting is dataloss.)
