I've been given an Orange San Francisco by my boss to fix for him. At the time he claimed it was bricked but its not as bad as first thought.
His initial problem was that the phone was unable to connect to the mobile network, despite having: a sim inserted, mobile tower in range, APNs configured correctly.
I have got a clean Gen 2 Cyanogen Mod 7.0.3 flashed with no problems. The APN settings are correct according to the Cyanogen APN list but it still doesn't connect to mobile networks.
I myself am a Desire man and so I have little real knowledge of the Blade. If it was a Desire I would try reflashing a radio rom but I'm not sure of the Blade equivalent.
Can anyone suggest what I should do next?
