    I'm trying to figure out if my lumia 800 has a qualcomm bootloader. I'M doing that with this guide: "To simply check if your Nokia Lumia 800 is having Qualcomm’s bootloader, Turn the phone OFF, then press and hold VOLUME UP + POWER until it vibrates then connect it to the computer. If the phone turns on in “USB Storage Mode”, then you have an unlocked Qualcomm’s bootloader – Windows PCs will report you to format the disk, Just don’t do that. If the device detected by the computer as “Nokia DLOAD” then you are out of luck and your Lumia 800 is having an locked bootloader and unfortunately you can not downgrade to Qualcomm’s unlocked bootloader."

    The problem is: my lumia isn't showing up as a Nokia Dload but it isn't asking me to format either. So my question is: Do I have a qualcomm loader?
