Can the issue be related to the provider not supporting newer OS?
no is maybe a hardware issue, latest official for vodafone is .132 right?
I suggest you use .141 or better still .141 and overwrite with Lyricidal 148/188.8.131.52 hybrid keeping the .141 radio.Works like a dream for me.
I have got to say I agree it appears to be hardware related and if so stay with original Os. Software may be locked.
But if it was hardware related how would it then work with an older version of the OS/radio?
I will try 654321ROD's suggestion of using the .141 radio and let you know how it goes. Btw, just to be sure, do you mean install the radio that came with the .141 OS? I believe the radio version shipped with the .141 os from vodafone was version .174 right? Cause I have tried the official .141 vodafone os downloaded from the bb uk site and that did not work either :(
Thanks everyone for your help :)
keep us posted please
Unfortunately the .141 radio did not work either. I still get the invalid sim error. It would have been ideal if i could use the .78's radio with the hybrid but that gives me an app error 523 :(
Will it be of any help if I wipe the device with jl-cmdr?
well you can try the wipe thing, but im not sure, do the wipe, reload the os with the sim in your phone, but try the straight before the hybrid...
