    Hello all,

    I have a weird problem and I can't seem to figure it out. I have searched high and low and can't find an answer or even anyone that has this problem.

    I was running a custom 2.2 rom with clockwork recovery installed via Rom Manager.

    Anyways, I started having a few problems so I was going to take it to stock and redo everything.

    I have the stock 2.1 sbf file and I put it back to my phone using RSD lite.

    It installed fine except it changed my PRL number to some weird higher number and now I can't get my phone to activate because it has the roaming triangle and is roaming on US Cellular.

    I reinstalled my custom rom and used rom manager to restore the image I had saved before I recovered and all is well except I cannot activate my phone because I can't see a verizon network.

    I even went into the programming menu and replaced the SID, MDN and MIN with all the settings in my Droid X but no dice.

    Any suggestions or tell me what i did wrong?

    I have found a way to write a new PRL but I can't get the HW virtual port app to work. So basically I am stuck.

    Thanks.

    Try flashing one of the radio files listed there? It should bring back the Verizon radios.

    Well that didn't work. Since I took it to stock 2.1, it no longer has SPRecovery or Clockworkmod recovery so I booted to the stock recovery and wiped and then tried to update the baseband (renamed the baseband file to update.zip).

    When i tried the update, I got an verification error, so it aborted the installation.

    When looking at the phone status after the recovery, it shows to have the latest baseband on it.

    Anything else to try? Can't believe no one else has had this problem using the stock recovery sbr image...

    Try a factory reset via settings? That's the only other thing I can think of.. there may be something else but I don't know what.

    You could always reroot via one of the many 1click apps and flash a recovery back on to try a diff baseband.

    SID, NAM, MIN, PRL, etc.. are NVRam. I don't think a factory reset can fix that. Those values are usually provisioned at the factory depending on the carrier the phone is made for (at KWC we had several lines, each for a different carrier and they were all provisioned differently). It sounds like you were trying to switch carriers and something went awry. Without that information your phone wont be able to talk to the correct base station and you will never be able to OTA provision. Best bet is to either take it into a vzw representative so they can fix your values - unless you know the correct values.
