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.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
