Prerequisite:

1) 3G Flyer
2) S-Off (get yours from Alpharev soon!)
3) Root

Using root explorer or your favorite text editor edit the build.prop file under /system/build.prop and edit the following lines:

Code:
ro.ril.reject.cs.ss.enabled=0
ro.ril.reject.mo.ussd.enabled=0
ro.phone.function=1
To enable Bt Headset profile change the following:

Code:
ro.bt.profiles	= 4270403
service.brcm.bt.ag_supported = 1

Save your changes and reboot your device. Look under the programs menu you will see the phone app :) you will now be able to make and receive calls.

Tested on a 3G UK unlocked flyer using an AT&T SIM.

EDIT: now with full BT support!!

Enjoy!

Just out of curiosity, would a modification of this work on the view? I realize that our plans don't include it but it would be nice to mess with.

Hello clubtech,

Can this be done with just temp-root? Since /system/build.prop is the only file we need to edit.

Thanks.
This is unlikely because the changes made in the said config file:
1. Cannot be saved and
2. When you reboot, root is lost.

S-Off is what we now need. Indeed, fingers crossed.

with temp root:
adb shell cat /system/build.prop > /data/build.prop
adb pull /data/build.prop

open pulled build.prop with notepad++ or whatever text editor you like, make changes suggested by OP. save file

adb push build.prop /data/build.prop
reboot .. and done

theory says that if a different build.prop file is in /data will overwrite the one from /system (same principle applies to apps from /system that when are updated in market new versions are installed to /data and system uses the ones from /data instead of ones from /system)

Did not work for me.
I changed both build.prop in /system and /data but after reboot both of them back to default!

Did the settings hold/work on your temp root Flyer?

What is your answer to my earlier question?

Not work for me with temp root as I said.
It won't work with temp root only. You need permanent root and s-off. The reason being is that the phone is designed to (when s-on) check on boot if any changes have been made to system files. If they have been made, it will automatically revert them back to the original file. That is why "temp-root" won't persist between reboot, and this is the reason I believe it is not working for you. When you reboot the phone, it is just reverting the changes you made to the build.prop file. Sorry, but I think that you will have to way until AlphaRev releases their s-off method.

Once they release their s-off method it should work.
