As usualy, please keep in mind that neither I or anyone else will take any responsibility for anything that happens to your phone through use of these files.
IF/When you enable and disable safestrap remember to format data/cache, causes bootlooping for me if I don't.
Warning, if you do this the way things are now you will not be able to get back to your bell software!! Only do this is you are absolutely sure you know what you're doing!!!!!!!!
You may have to be on the brazillian retail rom for this to work! You can find it in This Thread. You're looking for Fastboot package for UMTS XT860 Retail Brasil. At this point in time you can't get back to bell stock so again, it's at you're own risk!!
UPDATE: Thanks Rick2 for the recovery fix that allows us to swap between safestrap on the fly. Now when I need data I can get it anywhere. Works with Hashcodes newest safestrap (1.06). Go here to thank him and get the patch!
Update2: I've attached a CWM flashable zip that I've used to successfully get 3g working on Liberty and Mavs Rom, it does not work on cm7 but will hopefully work on other verizon based roms. It pushes the stock libmoto_ril.so(from the brazil retail), a new apns-xml.conf and a slightly edited build.prop(just made it en/US). I've had it cause the phone to fc loop if I installed it on an existing rom and didn't factory reset.
Update3: Watching this thread for info about me863 I think but according to that thread a user has flashed the brazil retail to his me863 and is trying to get data working
Update4: I've reworked the data patch to make it more universal. It should work on me863 providing safestrap runs on your phone. The patch will now copy files from /systemorig so you'll be using matching kernel/libs etc rather than using generic xt860 files. It also makes backups of the original files in the same location (just adds a .bak extension). This new patch IS SAFESTRAP ONLY. Huge huge thanks to Adamogle!!! If it weren't for him I'd still be banging my head up against the wall and no one would be using this patch. You may have to format data/cache, I left it out of the patch so everyone can test (if you phone goes into a force-crash loop then reboot and clear data/cache). Once I get confirmation of this working (or not) on the me863 I'll fix the thread again. I've left the old data patch(renamed as fit) as well in case anyone runs into troubles. Still not a cm7/9 patch, if one comes about it will get it's own thread but it works on all other custom roms based on motorola firmware.
if you see this and you're like "yes, finally some progress on the xt860!! Where do I donate???!?!!" You do that on Hashcodes website, it's ALL his hard work, I just basically wrote you a little story and pooled some files together. He really deserves it, he's working around the clock right now on cm9, seriously around the clock. Of course you can feel free to click the "Thank" button on this post if you like using my data patch
1./ Flash Brazil retail sbf from this thread
2./ root with Zerg from this thread. For some reason v3 kept tossing errors, v2 worked first try.
3./ install safestrap or whatever bootstrap (safestrap from Hashcodes site http://hash-of-codes.blogspot.com/
4./ profit (follow the directions to install a safestrap rom
Enable safestrap in options
Factory reset (formats data & cache)
Mounts > format system
Install your rom
Install my 3gfix
Reboot and profit
Again, my patch doesn't work on cm7 at the moment. Sorry Hashcode and everyone but I figured we'd be better off shooting for a known working rom. I'll update the post as I and other users test more roms. Thx thing on a spring for providing the patch "template", every time I threw one together and put it on my phone it turned out to be corrupt somehow so I just removed the files from your data fix and shoved in my own.
