BIG THANK YOU TO ULTRASHOT!
Without you I couldn't have done it!
NOTICE: Testing full unlock (XIP unlock etc) with ultrashot. Will post new files as soon as I get a working build which doesn't get stucked on boot ;)

You have a mirror of all the stuff on mediafire on xdafil.es: http://xdafil.es
Thank you mousey_!

PLEASE DO A FULL BACKUP OF THE NAND BEFORE PLAYING AROUND.
If you are developing fixes for the bootloader 'problem', feel free to grab a copy of the rest of partitions and stuff I posted over this thread here: http://www.mediafire.com/?kknt4lnc3tn7w


INSTRUCTIONS:
Requires an unlocked bootloader (a.k.a. qualcomm development bootloader).
Easy to check: Turn the phone OFF, then press and hold VOLUME UP + POWER until you notice a short vibration. Plug in to the computer. If the phone turns up in disk mode (USB Mass Storage Device), then you have an unlocked bootloader. IF you're in Windows, it will ask if you want to format the disk. SAY NO OR IT WILL EXPLODE (it won't explode but you might break it)
If the device detected by the computer is Nokia DLOAD you have a locked bootloader and you're out of luck, at least for now.

I used 'dd' in Linux, I guess you can do it with Windows version too (http://www.chrysocome.net/dd) but it's more involved to find the appropiate partition:
dd if=./os-new.nb of=/dev/sdX9
Where X is the disk detected by your linux distribution.
After that, you'll need to hard reset the phone. Hold Power button for 10 seconds to exit Qualcomm's disk mode, and press and hold POWER+VOLUMEDOWN+CAMERA until you feel the phone vibrate. After that, RELEASE power button but KEEP HOLDING volume down + camera for five or more seconds. This will trigger the hard reset.

Now time to play with bootloaders and try to get this to work for everyone!

Can't reproduce here.
I press both volume buttons and power and I get 'Nokia DLOAD'.

If I stop holding volume buttons, it boots WP7.

The method you've described is how I do dead-mode flash. I don't see why it would show a USB disk.

The only other thing I did was change usb mode from Zune to Serial on diagnostics app, and tap a bit on the 4 serial ports it shows when in serial mode, but I tried and for me it still works even in zune mode.

Also, what I have is a retail phone, not a development one.. just in case:
OS version: 7.10.7720.68
Firmware rev: 1600.2475.7720.11414
SoC version: 0.74.2.1
Bootloader version: 7.35.0.0

What do you have in your phone?

Sent from my GT-I9100 using XDA

I'm in Zune mode. I'll try this serial mode. Edit: Serial is same. I just get 'Nokia USB connectivity' instead (in Windows). Shows nothing on Linux.

Okay, I kept digging a little deeper, and this is what I know so far (if you want copies of dumps, files etc, just ask for them :))

First of all... Thank you Nokia!

LUMIA 800 FLASH FILE SYSTEM LAYOUT:

Partition Begin End Blocks ID
/dev/sdb1 * 1 1000 500 4d Initial Bootloader - SECBOOT

/dev/sdb2 1001 4000 1500 46 Second stage loader? - OSBL, also looks like it has the download mode and seems to init LCD, enable USB etc.

/dev/sdb3 4001 304000 150000 c W95 FAT32 (LBA) - Writable partition with EMMCBOOT, AMSS etc.
EMMCBoot is responsible for loading Windows Kernel (nk.exe). I got a copy of Samsung Galaxy i9001's emmcboot.mbn, and putted it in there. It tries to start, but seems to crash (expected). But hey! it tries to boot it (it even vibrates for 1/10 of a second), so getting something else (did anyone say...android?)running on this phone should be easier than in lots of other phones... Does anyone have u-boot ports for Qualcomm 8255?

/dev/sdb4 304001 31037579 15366789+ 5 Extended partition which holds the OS
/dev/sdb5 304006 304133 64 ef EFI (FAT-12/16/32) - Linux detects it as an EFI partition, but it's just 64Kb size, and seems to have some markers, not sure yet what it is, but could be anything from IMEI and simlock to an actual efi partiton for WinCE...
EDIT AGAIN: this partition contains phone serial number and product code, and possibly imei and simlock. For sure its not an efi partition :p

/dev/sdb6 304134 310277 3072 58 3Mb size
/dev/sdb7 393216 399359 3072 4a 3Mb size
/dev/sdb8 399360 405503 3072 4b 3Mb size
These three partitions have similar start and end data on their partitions, no idea what they are, since I haven't been able to see if it's even a file system. All the documentation I see seems to tell Windows Mobile uses exFAT for the filesystem, but can't seem to find its header anywhere on the flash... still looking. It could even be where WinMo stores application installers for first boot on the device (but could be perfectly wrong)

All of them start with the following header (hex):
7D 8D 27 82 D7 40 F8 90 53 22 82 43 6D EC 6F 69 49

/dev/sdb9 524288 31156362 15316037+ 48
This las partition is 15Gb size, and contains all the Operating System and all the data on the phone.

Anyone know about how does Windows Phone manage filesystems on NAND? Some help would be really appreciated...

EDIT: A little bit more... The file system for the 15Gb partition has _wmstore header, still incompatible with some kitchens, but still looking...
Here's part of the header:
_wmstore
!zLH?k
_wmpart_B
_wmpart_S
_wmpart_S
_wmpart_N
_wmpart_U
_wmpart_D
_wmpart_I
_wmpart_P
_wmpart_U
PSBdX
GFCB
SRPX

Once we can mount this thing and inject some files we'll have interop unlock :)

Apparently there's no need to downgrade. beidl said he managed to get it working using 12070 firmware

but on lumia 710 man on lumia 800 diagnostic app is updated on those firmware and is lack of serial mode
It seems it has more to do with firmware version than Serial/Zune menu availability on Diagnostics app. I haven't updated my Lumia, so I can't know for sure. Try powering down the phone and holding vol+, vol- & power. If windows detects a USB disk and tells you it's not formatted, it probably works for you (you can check it by going to Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management)

AGAIN, BE CAREFUL, YOU CAN BRICK YOUR PHONE.
