Post Getting an O2 Streak back to a useful state - 01-05-2011, 11:00 AM


I had a stock standard O2 Streak working with a Rebel SIM II card until a couple of weeks ago when I installed the OTA Dell Froyo update. After that I had a pretty, new OS and the words "no SIM card" which means that the Rebel SIM aint working anymore.

I had a good read at and managed to get the device loaded with DJ Steve's early 2.2 release but still "no SIM card". I know I need to start from a 2.1 build (correct?) but I'm not sure where to find the ROM or how to install it on the streak.

Any help please?

Pop on over to the StreakDroid website, and follow the QDL tool guide, that will stick something new on there. However, as I recall, the newer versions of the OS don't work with Rebel SIMs, so you will need to check Steve's FAQ, to see if he's got a version that will work with it.

Ok, I found the info on the net. Here's a quick guide in case anyone has the same problem.

I used the tutorial below to restore my Streak to DJ_Steve's Beta Froyo build. This is where I found the "No SIM card" problem.

Tutorials: QDLTool (repairtool) | Streakdroid

The link below explains how to downgrade from DJ_Steve's Beta Froyo to Eclaire (2.1).

Then I used the guide below to upgrade to version 1.5.2 of DJ_Steve's Froyo ROM. Yay!

And now I'm rocking the latest Froyo build with my Rebel SIM back in use!
