Repair and Reprogramming Guide for VIA CBP7x Chipset

We have guides for just about anything here on XDA. If you need to fix a soft brick, reflash stock firmware, root your device, unlock your bootloader, or use a custom recovery, there’s tutorials all over the site for it. So, what about radio chip set repairs and reprogramming? Those are a little harder to find, as they are a bit more complicated than flashing stock firmware. Such guides do exist though, including one that was written for the VIA chipset found in most newer Samsung phones. This includes, among others, the CDMA/LTE Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and Sprint.

XDA Senior Member autoprime has released a guide that will help anyone looking to repair or reprogram their VIA chipset devices. The guide is quite extensive and includes a number of methods, fixes, explanations, processes. In short, if you have a VIA chipset device (specifically the CBP7, CBP7.x, or CBP7+), this is a thread worth reading.

There is quite a bit of information to digest. Users can find anything from PRLs to an ETS Mode tutorial, from MSL acquisition to EVDO reprogramming. One could even repair their MEID and ESN. However, it should be noted that cloning ESNs is definitely not allowed. If any info regarding that shows up, the post will be immediately deleted, and the user will get into some trouble. Educational purposes only.

For additional information, check out the original thread.

When the company announced Apple Music, it directly took aim at the user base of iTunes which had migrated to the streaming convenience of Spotify and later, Google Play Music.
