    So I did something really dumb. I flashed a zip in cwm called superwipe before a flashed a Rom. Superwipe was a file I got when I had my thunderbolt. It wipes everything off the phone including system. This is the only thing I did out side the norm. Now I have no 4g service. When I dial ##3282# WiMAX is not in the list. I tried flashing a backup I made when I first rooted my phone and no luck there. Every Rom I've tried won't restore this setting. I have no idea what else to do. Can some one help with this issue? Thankx in advance for any info and suggestions.

    Look at what mount points the updater script formatted on the norm only partitions 26 & 27 (data and system) should be your concern if you touched the wimax partition or your keys you are pretty much screwed....

    You should always check what a script is doing before running it...

    Just noticed not for this device.

    Ok so I unzipped n copied this from da updater-script file

    ui_print("Formatting System");
    format("ext3", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p25");
    ui_print("Wiping cache");
    delete_recursive("/cache");
    ui_print("Formatting data");
    format("ext3", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p26");

    I have no idea what I'm looking at here

    But if it didn't mess with my keys how will I go about restoring my WiMAX?

    Well pretty much. I have no option for you. Always check your updater-scripts.

    Hard lesson to learn it this way.

    I don't believe restoring your backup will restore the wimax partition. How ever if you have the keys before you messed them up you can restore them to fix the issue. How ever I will have to look to see how to do it. Which won't be till probably sunday.

    Did you do a backup before you wiped the keys? If so they are in the backup. I just don't believe cwm will restore them.

    Probably will have to use dd to write to if the partition is unlocked that is.
