Hi Oli - thanks for pointing your skills at us Cheetah owners. Pof and I exchanged quite a bit of dialogue on this not too long ago, but he's been super busy focusing on Hermes work.

I'll volunteer - would you have some time on Friday evening? You're in the U.K. yes? If you shoot me a PM we can find a time that works well for both of us. Alternatively I can give whatever code and process you have a go and send you the results.

I've already got a cooked ROM set aside for testing once the whole signing thing is knocked out. =)

OK, here's what I have, and what I need

last night, I was given the WM6 leaked NBH; good news for you chaps is that it contains an SPL.

second bit of good news is that I've patched it with no problems.

the bad news is that obviously I don't own a Cheetah, so I need someone who does to setup VNC on their computer so I can VNC in and try and get the SPL to run on their device.

the chances of bricking your device in the process of getting the SPL to soft-load is pretty much 0%.

so... any takers? please?

P.S: on further investigation, I'd also like to point out that if we can get Hard-SPL working on it, sim-unlocking (if necessary for some devices?) should then be achieveable :)

Sorry Oli - was offline until today due to squirrels. You know, the little brown critters that eat nuts and nibble on coax... That was my ISPs excuse anyway.

I sent you a PM with my MSN ID. I'm set up with terminal access into the bootloader and whatnot, and have a cooked ROM which I *think* I've built with the proper parts in all the correct places.

yeah, but nobody's offered to help... still

OK Guys; major breakthrough... even though the person who kindly was helping went offline.

if anyone would like to get in touch, having a Hard-SPL up and running on these devices is going to be no sweat.

I'd also like to mention that from there, it'll be plain sailing to SIM Unlocking too.

Cheers guys!

Thanks

Thanks Olipro,

That pretty much wraps up the only downside about moving from the Vario II to the 750!

Now if only someone can figure out a way to program on on/off button that doesn't keep going back to the Today screen......
