Root [T-Mobile] What is your firmware number and did u use others?

My firmware for my Tmo is T-MOB010

1. Is this the latest?

2. Can you use other firmware?

actually that is your CID,or carrier identification. you can find the rest of your fomrware by entering fastboot getvar all in a cmd window.

mine is as follows:

this is the most current fimrware. im tryng pretty hard not to run other RUUs until a t mobile ruu is released,so ive not used any other firmware on this phone.

however,on my international m7,i have run the european firmware,the dev edition firmware,some asian firmware,and the att firmware.

so i guess the answer to your question 2,is yes you can change firmware. radio,hboot,etc can all be chanded by installing a matching cid,or supercid,and flashing another ruu.

cid is easily changed with a ship hboot: fastboot oem writecid xxxxxxxx (xxxxxxxx of course being cid,like T-MOB010 or 11111111)

mid is not as easily changed,but is possible. you need to install an eng hboot,wich is a lil risky,then: fastboot oem writemid xxxxxxxxx (where xxxxxxxxx is the modle id,such as PN0713000)

i would pretty strongly recomend not to run any other RUUs until an official t mobile ruu is released. or at least attempting to manually back up all important partitions(radio,hboot,boot,system,recovery,etc)

hope that helps :)

Thanks so much Scotty!

I will do my command this week and compare to yours.

Are you using your International M7 on Tmobile?

you are welcome :)

im not using it now. it is a factory s off pre-release unit that i bought thinking s off would not come. its is m7_u,so no LTE. id prolly rather have s off than lte,but once s off was released from 2 places i donated it to my dad and picked meself up a t mobile version since dayton has t mo LTE.

my dad is currently using it on t mobile,it works fine. since dayton is refarmed, it gets H+ in most places. he doesnt really care about lte becasue they are hardly ever out of wifi,lol.
