!!!BE SURE THAT YOU DO SOMETHING AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
!!!FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTION FOR STEP BY STEP!!!


I want to say that Im not a real programmer, I found some way to flash CID LOCKED device and wrote only shell (with userfrendly interface) and collected some useful tools.
Special thanx to itsme for his tools (if i dont mistake...)

WARNING!!! IF YOU WILL SEE CMD WINDOW DON’T CLOSE IT!!!
WARNING!!! DON’T TOUCH YOUR PC OR DEVICE WHILE FLASHING!!!


With this tool and my instruction you could:
1) Get info about ROM
2) Extract only OS from whole nk.nbf
3) Flash this OS to your G3/G4 CID LOCKED Device (even wm6 rom or latest aku 3.3 rom).

In atachment there are:
1) ShellTool.doc - instruction. Read first and please, follow it step by step!!!
2) ShellTool.exe with some other files that it need
3) Cert_SPCS.cab/EnableRapi.cab - should be installed on your device

I tryed to flash diffrent rom to g4 CID LOCKED DEVICE and its were flashed on it and worked perfect. Have fun:)
_________________________________________________________________________________
If your device doen't boot after flash procedure with my shelltool you should
1) Hold "Camera" while short pressing the "reset" button. Your device will enter in bootloader mode. You will se 3 stripes.
2) You should connect your usb cable to your device and pc and run RUU and flash this rom. ftp://xda:[email protected]/Wizard_Love_2.26.10.2_WWE_Novii+CF2.rar
3) read my instruction once more and repeat all step by step. its very important!!
_________________________________________________________________________________


ChangeLog:
1) Several bugs were fixed. Now you can flash OS from every rom you want

Does it also install extended ROM's on G4 devices?

No, now it can install only OS. I think i include this (extrom writing) feature in next release

Still can't believe that!

Couldn't flash G4 CID-locked with "Faria 3.3 v2". The utility just doesn't flash it.
Flashing now with Orwell's WM6... let's see what we get :)

Yep! Worked that perfectly to me! No need to CID-unlock the Wizard :)
Great job mun_rus!

i tried installing wm6 pdaviet4...but now it is stopped at the screen with ipl spl

IPL 2.21.0001
SPL 2.21.0001
GSM 02.07.10
OS 10.1.0.011

no itsutils errors...nothing wrong while flashing...:(

EDIT: Now works. Entered in bootloader...flashed back old rom...e tried again.

Probably my error was a notification that poped up while flashing :(

I followed the instructions and when i go to flash the device, it goes pretty much instanly to

It works well.
What I understand is this thing flash the system rom part while runing the OS instead of putting the device in a flash mode.

Btw, I was used to work with a virutal machine (emulated XP becaause of Vista) and I wasn't able to flash correctly.
Each time, it wouldn't go to the end of the process.
