They are, in fact, not the same.

Wonder which block device it is. Maybe just infer based on what the resulting file sizes are and which one is 7 or 16 MBish.

I bought mine two days ago, and only this morning did I realized that there is a retractable antenna that is used for the SEG TV. Have you tried deploying it?
yeah, there is an antenna. 1seg App won't even attempt to tune. It's totally different behavior in the app after flashing a kernel with root.



... I've got a feeling the baseband is /dev/block/mmcblk0p8. I'm about to revert to a friends...

the gs2 is my first android and I would like to root it but after reading your posts it is freaking me out.
How do I rip my system and make a total baseband back up? is the basic back up app enough?
I was thinking of using lite ning rom, do you think it would be safe for the SC02?
Thanks

i'll have an answer for you in an hour or two on if you can install a root kernel and keep your GPS.

As of right now, what I've gathered is: you install a root kernel, you loose your TV for sure.

Install a full rom and loose your base band and your GPS is borked too.

My buddy is coming over my house right now and I'm gonna try to dump his good binaries and inject them into my phone. I'll let you know how it goes...

I was literally minutes away from rooting when I saw this thread. Thanks for your insight -- hopefully you get this figured out. I don't care about the TV, but I'd love to return to using my root required apps and custom roms without breaking everything else.

I'm 100% stock still -- I can't manipulate and hack away code myself, but I can follow directions and type out command line stuff if you want me to try and get something from the phone.

This will really all become moot the first time there's a carrier update and we can download/extract the files from off the Kies server. Then we'll have good PDA/Baseband files so we can always go back barring a total brick.

hopefully I can get this GPS thing worked out. Just waiting on anyone with a working GPS on an SC02C to send me dd dumps of their 2 through 6 partitions...

Code:
su -
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 of=/mnt/sdcard/mmcblk0p2.img
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/mnt/sdcard/mmcblk0p3.img
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 of=/mnt/sdcard/mmcblk0p4.img
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 of=/mnt/sdcard/mmcblk0p5.img
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/mnt/sdcard/mmcblk0p6.img
