1) They are indeed part of the problem as your "prop" are missing in the obvious areas and more still in the one you are NOT able to see via the GUI.
2) No. The file Davew41 compiled did not change "prop" just added SUPERUSER.
LOL,, ikr the Readme was not 100% accurate.. left some unfortunate wiggle room.
Im near the end of my helpfulness. But it sounds as if you build.prop file got corrupted thus populating blank baseband values as well as the other values.
IDK what to tell you other than perhaps you can take it back WW and replace., or wait till the REAL smart ppl make your acquaintance, offering you a method to realize satisfaction..
I can not fathom why the same package we used successfully, has rendered your phone inoperable.
What can you do with this phone, before the resets? Do you get the generic Blue Trackphone splash screen starting up the device?If you dont see the Trackphone splash screen then something is wrong with the loaded image.
In any case, Let's just start from scratch:
Delete all previous ODIN images, and get the one Murderousone archived. You will not have to go via Mega wait timer
Just Click and save to Desktop, 7zip>Open archive>Make Folder>Extract
Factory Straight Talk Precedent Root
BTW.. I never had to use the Boot.tar
only because ..as the directions hinted. only use if things get really messed up.
The directions are not there as to what sequence of what other files you are to use w/ Boot.tar..so you might experiment again.
IE Boot.tar alone
then follow directions assuming proper order.
Thanks for responding and good luck!
