I thought the same at first then worked out that the test proves it's not the SD causing the sim not to make contact with the pins causing the sim not register, so it must be something in software

You should read once again. Both sims worked. So I, too, have no idea what Heik meant.

Both sims work with the SD physically in the tray, but with the SD connected (no tape) the second sim gets disabled. Thus the problem seems to be in software... Awaiting dmesg output to confirm.

Android people seem to suffer from the same problem so I don't think it ever worked under Android and we are facing another Sony trick to cripple functionality for people that are too adventurous.

This next to the DRM keys that make sure original functionality can never be restored after re-flashing a once unlocked boot loader if you are not careful and make a backup of said keys etc...

The nail that sticks out must be hammered down!


I would try to cover SD card pins pin by pin and see when I loose the SD and get the 2nd SIM card back.
But that could lead to non-desired results I guess

My first question was 'does it work in android', as the conversation continued I assumed that was a yes.

Still will be interested to see if the sim gets 'seen', if not it's hardware - anyone willing take one apart and look for joined traces?

Any comments?
The one who invented the alternative SIM/SDcard slot should be fustigated.

yes. I know that in the early days of hybrid trays that trick did worked but lately it doesn't even on some cheap chinese phones. And all higher end phones are marketed as either dual SIM or single SIM+ SD card.
