    Hey there,
    I got this Droid, seems different than other's, but anyway here's the info,

    Model: p3a_sholes_cdma
    Firmware: sholes_cdma_ap_p3_21.0e.11i_24.06
    baseband: c-01.25.03p
    kernel vr: unavailable
    internal vr: eng.jsuttles.2009.1217.144820


    I pressed X+Power, it skipped recovery mode and went ahead boot the system normally. With "up" on the dpad there's no bootland but backlight, however the device can be discovered under RSD.
    So I then flashed VZW_A855_ESD56_noRADIO.sbf, aka the official 2.01 firmware using RSD light 4.6 (w/o radio), and I can't even get it start up - there's just backlight when I turned it on.
    Then I flashed the VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03.sbf, in the process of flashing the ROM, the device displayed "sw update complete", which indicated to me there's nothing wrong w/the connection, but the problems are still there.

    Any thought what I can do to fix it?

    Does it have the Verizon name and logo on it? If not, it might be a milestone. This isn't the exact same as the Droid. I couldn't tell you what it would be if it was a Droid though.

    That phone info looks very suspect. None of it is known Droid info. The baseband is different from the 2 we have and having sholes cdma listed as the model makes it seem like an old developement phone. Where did this come from?

    m9cdma: You will never get that droid to work. I think you should just send it to me, as you will never get it activated as a droid phone on verizon. 'cough, cough' where did you get it? I'll bet you cannot really tell? If the rest of you (except jstafford) do not recognize what he has, he surely ought to send it to someone like me.

    Sorry to bring this up, but what exactly is this? My curiosity is peaked and I can't find any information by using Google.:unsure:
