This is funny. Indeed, as it relates to WFS marvelc Virgin Mobile is a US carrier. Three marvelc carriers I've spied so far are aforementioned VM USA, US Cellular, and MetroPCS

Disassembler for ARMv6 instruction set would also come in handy.
Thank you very much.

Here's where I'm at:
- HTC Wildfire S (Marvel) [Model HTC-A510a] GSM
- Android 2.3.3, Kernel 2.6.35-10
- Bootloader 1.08.0099
- Platform HBOOT-7227
- CIDNUM BM__001
Here's what worked:
- I unlocked the bootloader
- I root'ed it
Here's what's failing:
- I can't flash any ROMS on it at all! (Can't flash a recovery image ROM, nor can I flash a "regular" phone ROM on there.)
I've tried various methods of applying a custom recovery UI (via "PG76IMG.zip" file on the SD card) but EVERY time I get the same error:
"Model ID incorrect!"
If I try to SuperCID to 11111111, I get:
"(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!"
I suspect that the current CID or Bootloader is not the "right version"... but I have no idea what to upgrade/downgrade to in order that I may start applying custom ROMs!
Any help at all will be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance.

HTC has added the Wildfire S to the list of supported devices.
I have not tested it (yet).
It's been supported for quite some time now. I've unlocked the day the unlock was provided and it works, but only on a Windows PC. You have to upgrade the radio before performing the unlocking and the utility that flashes the radio update is only provided for Windows. It does lots of low-level stuff, so no chance of running it on Wine (it won't get through the Linux Hardware Abstraction Layer), but virtual machine with Windows running on a Linux host will probably work, provided you can map the raw USB device through.

i used a command to install recovery image "clockworkmod 5.0.6 or something" from boot loader "i am S-on still "
all i can remember is i had the cid error so i unziped the recovery.img "i guess" and put it in c:\android with fastboot and ran the fastboot command
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
the mobile must be in fastboot usb mode of course
anyway i have a noooooob question i installed a nightly build from http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1395973
which is this one unofficial-CM7-marvel-nigthly-01_15_2012.zip
it woks great everything works :):)
what i wanna ask is i did overclock to 245-768 with a slight performance increase but
does that even count without overclocked kernel ??????
i don't understand all this mumbo jumbo about the kernel and why i am still s-on with unlocked status

There is a binary flag in the Radio that is called secu_flag. It might be on ("S-ON") or off ("S-OFF"). On a "regular" phone (that consumers can buy), it is on, on "developer" variations of the phone (which will be shipped to companies doing Android development for example) it is off.
The flag basically tells HBOOT to check signatures of the recovery before flashing it and as long as you have the stock recovery, you can't flash custom ROMs. This is why you couldn't get a custom ROM on an "S-ON" device prior to the HTC bootloader unlocking thing. Additionally, it causes HBOOT to issue commands to the MMU (memory management unit) of the MSM7227 (this is the phone's processor, it's basically a replica of an ARM 1136EJS) to mark the memory pages that contain the Radio firmware read-only before booting a kernel, so you can't tamper around with the Radio on an "S-ON" device.
Now HTC provides bootloader unlocking, which disables the first security measure (checking signature of the recovery), but leaves the second one (protecting the Radio) intact. The phone is still "S-ON" to protect the Radio, but as the signature checks of HBOOT are disabled, you can flash a custom recovery (e. g. ClockWorkMod) and use this one to flash custom ROM. So it's some sort of "intermediate state". You can basically modify anything but the Radio. It's probably relatively easy to find a way around the Radio protection as you can get a custom kernel flashed with an unlocked bootloader, but "officially" the Radio is still protected on an "Unlocked S-ON" device, while it is totally unprotected on an "S-OFF" device.

Thanks all involved including, but not limited to:
Alquez - for all his work on cm7
Modpunk - for his continuing work porting cm9
Now I need to double-down on helping the marvelc guys.. maybe they can see an official build before the phone goes by the wayside.

- I'll try this ROM and test it during 2-3 days. I'll send results after that.
I've installed this ROM
You have to be patient during the 1st boot with the rom...
But it works

Does CM7 or 9 makes it any easy to use a bluetooth keyboard as the apple keyboard with my wildfire s? There seems to be a workaround using a "bluekeyboard jp" app, but does not really work with android 2.3.5 on the wildfire s.
Also, where can I find a list of bugs for alquez's cm7 port (sorry if it is obvious, but couldn't find)
Thank you very much.
