    There is no alternative to rooting... no working USB= no root

    The alternative to getting the nv items would be to read the file with a CDMA workshop type program, which is touchy with the prevail... and would still require a working USB port

    Couldn't you still copy it with a standard file manager? You don't need to be rooted to find the file and forward it to yourself in an email (I don't think.)
    A few months ago I copied my cousin's Cloud.ogg notification ringtone from the /system folder on her galaxy tab. Bluetooth'd it to my Asus transformer and used it as my notification ringtone. Her galaxy tab wasn't rooted. Just try to go there with something like astro manager and send it to yourself somehow. Read-only doesn't mean no-access

    Stl5 isn't /system tho... It's your nv data... If it was in /system it would be formatted when you wipe... It requires su or cdma...
