2nd EDIT: Downloading .167 from Oman (i tried Taiwan version before)... maybe their Radio files will be compatible anyway

are you trying to use DM to load the os?

So far, I tried installing - .141 official Vodafone UK, .167 official Taiwan, .167 official Oman
All ended up giving me an invalid sim (just like the OP).... of course, even in august, the only compatible radio files are the .78 and they just seem not to work with newer OS, hence hybrid is not going to work...
I dont know if I should waste more time on trying to upgrade, because there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel, and I don't know if the .151 will work, unless there's a hybrid running around which I missed using .78 radio files, but I couldnt find it..
one thing i hate is giving up on these stupid technology!!!

I fully understand your frustration. I have stopped posting on this thread as I could not take it any longer with the old software on the storm so I decided to swap with the Curve.
I have spoken to Vodafone Malta over and over again regarding the software issues and my need to upgrade the phone in order to make it do the simple things like sustaining a complete phone call without the line dropping, etc. and the last thing they promised me was a release of an official update by the end of July!! We're in the end of August now and the software has not been released!!!
and i just swapped my curve for the storm.... pfff i kinda like the storm, except for the horrible battery for now...
ill try phoning them when i have the chance.. i wont give up.. and the only thing i can think off is getting the phone unlocked..........
It will be impossible to unlock it with any of the online services available. I have tried many times and always ended up getting a refund. One helpful unlocking service provider told me that there is no point trying to unlock with any of the online unlocker services because they will not have the correct algorithm for the Storms that are available in the Maltese market.
Vodafone Malta will charge you €70 to unlock, I thought its unfair to pay €70 when the only reason I want to unlock it is because of the crappy software and them not releasing timely updates!
Its worth mentioning that I also had issues with the screen, dead areas (no click) in the far end corners on 2 different Storms, so that also put me off the Storm.
