Default Droid 3 XT 883 ROM

Hiii


I am a noob so please forgive for any silly questions/statements.

I need Droid 3 XT883 ROM with GSM/CDMA OMH Configuration, googled but could not found it. One Blur_Version.60.2.200.XT883.ChinaTelecom.en.CN.zip - ?? link is there but could not download it after 3 hrs. It's all chinese & doesn't wotk with google translation while logging in.

I already have my phone flashed with this when I bought it from ebay, Works on CDMA & GSM both with OMH sim card, but can't safe strap the ROM (It's a known bug due to some different file system mapping). I want to try different ROMs or setting but can't dare as have no backup ROM in case things go wrong.

Can you install SafeStrap and then create a nandroid backup? This will back up your system and other files as an emergency restore point. The XT883 is the Chinese build of the D3... Are you sure you have an XT883? Check under the battery. You are able to use an XT862 (VZW D3) on U.S. GSM networks just by flashing the Chinese radio and there are guides on XDA Forums. There may be some XT883 ROMs available, but they're most likely going to be in Chinese due to the phone being Chinese.

Wow never checked that after purchase. Ya it's 862 flashed with XT 883 china rom. I knew that it's chinese ROM but didn't know that it's 862. I should have as it carry verizon logo.

Anyway I mentioned in my first post that safestarp won't work on XT883 it's a know bug due to different partition mapping. This phone is not launched in india, i think on eay the seller is flashing it with chinese ROM & changing language with more locale and selling it after customization, that's how i got it. But i got idea from you that I can try to flash 862 ROM & replace the radio with my existing one. But it will work or not i have doubt.

Do u know any good way with which i can keep my both radio working as it's right now so i can use a GSM sim as well as a CDMA OMH sim? & first of all how can i extract my current radio?

Thanx for your expertise

You need a ROM written in English but with the Chinese radio flashed.

This is for ATT/T-Mobile, but it essentially unlocks it for GSM usage inside the US, but will do the same outside I assume. (Never read into it much, not a concern of mine :/)

Guide - Unlock XT862 for T-mobile/ATT - xda-developers

These may also help. (Didn't read them)

Thanks, will go through these & see. Can u suggest any other backup method other than safe strap?

Edit : Also found the XT 883 ROM link finally, a lot of people on different forums are saying it's best ROM for droid 3 till now, very fast & efficient & with firewall, fm radio etc etc & minus bloatwares. Any way I never had any other rom so wouldn't know.

Bootstrap and SafeStrap (SS is the better option, as you nearly CAN'T brick with it) both allow nandroid backups to be made. Since there's an 883 ROM, there must also be a recovery (BS or SS) that works with the phone.

It should be there if it's a ROM. Anyway extracted from my zip & uploading it.
I think you need radio only, build prop u can modify the existing one.

Download XT883 ROM.rar from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

Do you have option to select GSM/CDMA in network options? if no,

did u follow the steps while flashing .57 & before updating to .60?
