Default [how to]change your MID without the eng bootloader

this thread is for the folks who wish tochage their MID in order to fully convert a device and recieve OTA updates. the method described here is not the only way to skin the cat,but as long as your careful the risk is very minimal, its quick and easy and doesnt require any hboot downgrades,eng hboot install,data loss,or having to run an ruu.

please note that s-off is required!

standard disclaimer: use this information at your own risk. it has been tested,but copying the command incorrectly could have consequences. if you melt your phone into a smoldering little pile of aluminum goo, its not my fault.


IF you are an advanced user with adb/fastboot set up and some basic knowlede of the cmd window,you can skip to #2
1)set up adb






2)change your MID
warning: *do not try and type the command. please copy and paste it

-AT&T,developer,google play MID:




__________________________________________________ ______________________________________
-t mobile MID:




__________________________________________________ ______________________________________



your command window should look like this:
Code:
c:\miniadb_m7>adb shell
root@m7:/ # echo -ne '\x50\x00\x4e\x00\x30\x00\x37\x00\x33\x00\x31\x00\x30\x00\x
30\x00\x30' | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=1 seek=16384
00\x30' | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=1 seek=16384                          <

i dont think im going to add any more MIDs in the above post,as i dont think many(any?) will be flip flopping to something other than those 2. it could be dnagerous to try and convert m7_ul to m7_u or m7_wlv

if you need to change to something different let me know,and i can put it here,so all the comands are in one place. this post is for reference only.


for international m7_ul PN0710000
Code:
echo -ne '\x50\x00\x4e\x00\x30\x00\x37\x00\x31\x00\x30\x00\x30\x00\x30\x00\x30' | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=1 seek=16384
for m7_u PN0711000
Code:
echo -ne '\x50\x00\x4e\x00\x30\x00\x37\x00\x31\x00\x31\x00\x30\x00\x30\x00\x30' | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=1 seek=16384
for verizon,m7_wlv PN0731000
Code:
echo -ne '\x50\x00\x4e\x00\x30\x00\x37\x00\x33\x00\x31\x00\x30\x00\x30\x00\x30' | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=1 seek=16384
