I'm looking for a copy of the MPRG8960.HEX file.

This file is used to build the 8960_msimage.mbn which is the OEM bootimage flasher used by the MSM8960 Emergency host down-loader (EhostDL) to boot bricked devices. The tool that builds that *.mbn image is: emmcswdownload.exe which is a program that come with the QPST software...

Apparently, some ZTE firmwares may contain these...

In addition it would be useful to be able to extract these files into pure images.
The HEX file content look like this:
Code:
 0 :020000042A00D0
11 :10000000D1DC4B843410D773FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFEE
3e :10001000FFFFFFFF500000005000002A348802005C
...
Any help would be much appreciated!

I think I might have found it. It seem to be here, but it's on a Chinese site that requires registration, and I cannot complete registration, since they're asking to complete a Chinese captcha! :(

Pssst: weasel.net / MPRG8660.HEX
Thanks I already have those. I have many, but not for the 8960. Which make me speculate that the MPRG8960.HEX is not needed, if it could be built into to one of the bootloaders and possibly extracted from there as well...

I think we should have a section for Qualcomm and Tegra based devices specifically for these purposes. Lots of people on forums with Qualcomm chips and similar issues that may unite great minds :)

I have checked latest QPST release(Q3 2012) and it did not come with this file, despite many other HEX files :crying:

are we 100% sure the file exists? if it is not packaged inside QPST.. where would it come from?

There's definitely code in the 8960 PBL for the programmer. The reason it's probably not included with QPST is because the programmer is signed and signature-checked in the same way as SBL1, which means there's a programmer for each OEM and probably a different one for each phone model by the OEM that uses the 8960.

I've been searching the web for the .hex and .mbn files.... I have failed to find anything. I did find on a Russian site that said the two files will not be able to be obtained because of the write protection on sbl 1, 2, and 3... I'm confident in the great minds of everyone here on XDA that we will find some way to bypass that wp without corrupting the files.

thanks to 18th.abn we now have 8960_msimage.mbn and partition_boot.xml:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=34274853&postcount=2256

have been searching everywhere for mprg8960.hex and tracked down a link in a chinese forum:
http://bbs.wpcnn.com/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=25317&pid=580675&fromuid=77335
unfortunately the link is no longer active. i joined the forum, pm'ed the poster and posted in the thread, but haven't heard back. maybe if he receives more requests he'll create a new link?

i also downloaded the full firmware file linked in the op of that thread in the slight chance that mprg8960.hex would be included in it, but the file is a single .binx; no idea how to extract its contents. also, pantech uses an online update utility that requires the phone to be plugged in for it to work, so doesn't look like that is an option to extract the contents.

I was able to register on that site (got English captcha), but it doesn't have the file, it's just a request.

I'm very HAPPY to announce that they have been found!

Here are your HEX files. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Code:
8064_msimage.mbn
8930_msimage.mbn
8960_msimage.mbn
MPRG8064.hex
MPRG8930.hex
MPRG8960.hex
GPP8064.hex
GPP8960.hex


THESE ARE NOT TESTED!
AFAIK. You could hard brick your device if you try to use/flash these, in case they have the wrong signature key, as expected by your HTC device. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY with anything that happens if you use these.

Thread Closed!
