    Sorry to say I do not believe that the hardware always varies between 2 variants. For most androids, a difference in the supported radio bands does not result in any hardware difference but only the firmware.

    Such modification may not have been explored for the BlackBerry's but that's another thing and not different hardware.
    Well, it's different hardware on BB10.

    Certainly completely inaccessible firmware at the VERY least.

    Possible to share how this was verified/concluded for BB10? Thanks

    That's incorrect. Android also has hardware variants that can't be changed, Verizon has historically required their branded devices to require legacy CDMA radios and LTE band 13, while other variants have other radio bands to support GSM carriers. That's the whole point of "variant". Because they vary.

    Yes for instance HTC M8 AT&T and Verizon variants differ that way. But all the other M8 variants are the same HW. Any possibility that any variant modification method is available for the Classic? Thanks.

    No. None. Zero. Full stop.

    Thanks for confirming this. I wished to unlock UMTS 900 for my Classic but that seems impossible for now.

    Does this also backup apps? I want to transfer apps no longer on BBW from my old device to my new one.

    I am having some major issues connecting to Darcy Tools.

    This is the error message I get:
    "root element missing"

    Here is my bug file

    System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.

    A little background.
    Many of my core apps stop functioning
    BBM
    Settings
    Wifi / Mobile access
    Accounts

    I can access email, contacts, maps

    I am trying to sideload my settings app which hopefully with fix the problem.
    My passport is not connecting to Sachesi nor Darcy.

    Any suggestions
