Everything seems to work, we just need to fix tge Market. I seriously don't think it's just me, but the Market won't allow me to download the apps I've always had since 2.3.4, but now I can't get them. Is it the Update or MarketEnabler?

Skype for Android is just one example, but I can't even download the damn backported ICS Keyboard without going "elsewhere."

DaKid, did you properly follow the instructions of the guide? If you didn't, you may want to take another look.

I believe I can claim the title of being the first to soft-brick 2.3.6. I don't know what I did to get that way, but I just reflashed and my Data is still there so I did something right. Rerooting, flash, and all the other good stuff.

Fixing MMS (Send & Receive)
1- Download and place these files into the system folder (click here) you could use ES File explorer (Free Click Here To Download)... go to its setting and activate the root access along with changing the home directory to "/" you could do the file copying
2- Download & Install "APN Settings Shortcut"
3- Place a shortcut for the "APN Settings Shortcut" on one of your desktops
4- Restart your phone.
5- Run the "APN Settings Shortcut" and push on the menu button and choose "Reset to defaults"

Now you should be able to send and receive MMS messages.

after fixing the MMS the market will not work, if you need to download something you have to run "MarketAccess" or "Market Enabler".. this will disable the MMS and to fix the MMS back you have to restart your phone and apply the APN reset again.

:: looking for a fix for this is on the way


i dont understand can someone please help me with thiss? pleasee

I've been playing around with my Admire (Android 2.3.6) "build.prop" file. I'm considerably tweaking it, and I may be able to upload it soon. I recently discovered a tweak that I want to say 'unlocks a "hidden" wallpaper'. I'm looking to speed it up more, I'll see what I can get.

Anyone else notice the battery draining faster after updating to 2.3.6? Or just me?

I want to say that 2.3.6 has relatively same battery life.
My battery started overheating on 2.3.6 though.

Here is a .ZIP containing 2 Build.prop files. One is "HQ" and the other is not. They both contain the same modifications except the "HQ" uses an experimental code to change the resolution of the phone making the UI look slighly smaller.

It is experimental, I'm not responsible for damage to your Admire.

>> For use with 2.3.6 ONLY <<

Comments included for quite a number of tweaks. Change to fit yourself as well.
If anybody needs help, I will post a full installation guide tomorrow. Advanced users only tonight, please.

Short Installation:
> Using ADB/the SDK or a File Explorer with Root Access, install either Build.prop to /system/:

Permissions should be: rw-r--r--
Owner should be: Root/Root
Attached Files
File Type: zip Build.prop.zip (4.4 KB, 85 views)

I'm not sure about this

But if you deactivate the MetroPCS so it is no longer in the MetroPCS network list it should be able to get register at the Cricket network.

this is a guide to activation process.

I think that activating it automatically or manually inserting the information with QPST will get the phone working on Cricket.

So this how it would go

1- Deactivating the phone from MetroPCS.
2- Activating the phone by registering the phone ESN with cricket.
3- If needed edit the connection information manually with QPST.

I never done this before and I'm not sure if it is going to work (it's just the basic way of activating any phone)... the only different is that you want have the OS that is shipped originally with Cricket Admire phones.

Default Mms

Hey there,

Tried this out today and the data/market fixes worked great. The MMS fix I have not been able to get to work.

I went through the instructions and copied the system files using ES File Explorer into the system folder right from the phone. I have root access and enabled it in ES File Explorer before doing this.

I then downloaded the APN Settings Shortcut from the Market, put the shortcut on my desktop and rebooted phone (power off and power on). Ran the APN Settings Shortcut app and did the reset to defaults. I'm not sure if a profile is supposed to appear once I do this, but none did. Tried to send an MMS message with a picture and never sent, eventually kicking back a failure icon.

Can we add these settings manually to the APN Settings Shortcut app or does it need to pull from those system files to work properly?

Just out of curiosity, on 2.3.6, is the Notification volume still horribly low?

Well I saw that I missed the 2nd Part of the MMS how-to fix by deleting and copying the new mms.apk file. You should probably edit the first post and make this easier to find..

After copying over these files and re-copying the system files, rebooting the phone, then re-applying the APN settings to default, I was able to send/receive MMS.

take the battery out and place it back in. (don't turn the phone on). plug in the usb and keep holding the camara button, when Odin recovery shows up press the volume up button.

i finally got the data servies to work after weeks of trying the steps in this forum.

Thanks for the help all, but i suggest you explain everything in detail. the reason why it wasnt working for me. was that the userid in the pip-an and um tab wasnt clear, i was putting my name instead of myphone@mymetropcs.com

now i just need to do the mms to work.

I just never got around to programming the MMS from the tutorial. I checked my phone to see what was to be after the "MarketAccess" app (the last step in the tutorial before programming your MMS), and all is well. This thread worked wonders for my bricked admire.

could someone still using the 2.3.6 upgrade please upload their startup and shutdown sounds, as well as the coresponding .qmg files for the animation type files for start up and shut down? i can help you locate the files if you need, they should be in:

/system/bin/samsungloop
/system/bin/bootanimiation

/system/media/bootani.qmg
/system/media/samsungani.qmg

/system/media/video/shutdown
all shutdown.png files

/system/media/audio/ui/shutdown.ogg

/etc/poweron.wav

I'd be forever greatful to whoever can help. i want to see if i can get rid of the annoying metro startup and shutdown S***.

thanks

If someone have a working 2.3.4 OS in the android can you do this for me.

get me the prop name for that holds the MetroPCS name in it.

How to do that....
1-Enable debug mode in your phone
2- Download and install the phone driver from Samsung (I think most have it already installed)
3- Download Java JDK and Android SDK (no need to download anything after installing Android SKD)
4- Copy the link for the ADB utility in the Android SDK folder (In my case it is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools")
5- Go to Start-->Run or in the Search box type "CMD".
6- The command prompt will pop up ... type "cd" follow by space than paste the link of the ADB folder .... hit enter, this should get you into the adb folder
6- type "adb shell" and hit enter (this should get you connected to the phone by the adb utility)
7- If you want to use the ADB with root privileges type "SU" and hit enter and from your phone click on "Yes" To allow the ADB to have root privileges.

** Now Type "getprop" and a list of properties and their values should show up .... I am looking at the property that contains the MetroPCS values... it should be next to operator.alpha ... I also would like to know the operator.numeric and the operator.iso-country

Thanks

note :::: to copy things from the CMD right-click with the mouse and select "Mark" after that select the text from the CMD and hit "Enter" than you could paste your selection anywhere.

I have updated the first post with the new custom ROM released by MysteryEmotion it will return you back to 2.3.4 and it's much faster.

I remember using this, even if samsung releases this for metro, i wouldn't recommend, eats up battery toooo much. removing bloat ware + adding the speed tweaks is almost the same thing..

Lots of great information here . I want to root and move a Cricket Samsung SCH-R720 Vitality ( same as Samsung Admire so I've read) to Page Plus Cellular ( Verizon MVNO ) . I think that there is enough here to get me started ( noob )but I would like to have a quick summary of what to do specifically for setting it up on Page Plus Verizon MVNO (voice, mms, data)- Thanks

For the texting can we use copies of the 2.3.4 and put them on the 2.3.6 would that work? if so does anyone have the files?

copy it to your sd card. start your my files program, click on it,let it install and it will be in your apps drawer. then you can run it from there or put it on any of your desktops if you want.
