    I am not sure if anyone can use the 'no drm' version, I have been on many a website and not seen one review/comment of this firmware so far.

    Maybe the Eastern Asians have had more luck, but certainly the European camp is pretty quiet.

    Follow the instructions, and it works great. :haha:

    Edit by lyricidal:
    If you are unable to install this on your 9520, follow these steps:
    1) Install .402 and .428 leaks
    2) Delete Vendor.xml
    3) Navigate to either:
    x64/64-bit users: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files
    x86/32-bit users: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files
    4) Click and open the 9520 .428 folder - select the CDMA and Java folder and Right click > Copy or Ctrl + C
    5) Go back and open the 9520 .402 folder and Right click > Paste or Ctrl + V
    6) When asked to overwrite files, click Yes to all until both folders are copied over
    7) Uninstall .428 from Control Panel
    8) Install as you did for .402 leak

    Tell me... after this procedure... on the phone... options-->about
    Does the platform read 4.2.0.182 or 4.2.0.171?

    If it still reads 4.2.0.171, then the OS has not been upgraded in any way.

    I think I will wait till someone else can post an 'About' screen to verify this procedure or a DRM leak.

    I know lyricidal is renowned for his hybrids, but my question would be the alx files in the root of the installation folder that make specific reference to the file name of the sfi file.

    If these names do not match (and they don't), then how can it work?

    I see from the response in the other forum that the OS has indeed gone untouched and remains 4.2.0.171.

    What you may find now is that because you have only updated the application layer the applications may start to get pretty buggy as they are making calls on the OS that it doesn't understand.mfg:

    Did you delete the .402 CDMA directory prior to moving the files and the temporary cache of .402? Or did you just copy them over on top of the existing .402 installation?

    The .402 sfi file name is different to the.428 one so copying the folder over would not overwrite the .402 sfi file. PLUS there are a number of .alx file in the root of the installation (e.g. platform.alx etc.) that are still pointed towards the .402 filename.

    If you look at the filename PL4.2.0.182 - it has to be getting the OS of .402 from somewhere on your PC.
