Default How To Get Your MSL Code

If you don't know what an MSL code then you don't need it

If you need it, here's how to find it on the Warp with Gingerbread 2.3.5

Following the directions in this post with caveats listed below:

[GUIDE] Easy way to get MSL without calling Sprint or using CMDA Workshop

When you open aLogCat, click Menu, then Filter.

Set a filter on the word "code" without the quotes

Wait a few seconds or more. Or go to phone and trying ##3282# again, select Edit, then Cancel. Go back to aLogCat, look at the results. You'll probably see two 6 digit codes listed. One of them is your MSL.

Go back to your dialer, enter ##3282#, select Edit. Try each code. One of them will work.

Be aware that if you enter the wrong MSL twice the phone will automatically reboot.

Just as I suspected, MSL Reader from Market fails miserably - doesn't pull the MSL even with root access. Probably because ZTE goes to significant lengths to obscure info on the Warp phone.

We tried several typical "getprop" commands yesterday with adb to try to find the MSL, none worked. So far the only solution that does work for sure it the one I posted above.

Default [Guide]How to change your MSL and PRL (Not CDMA Workshop)

Moderator note 1/6/2013- changing your MSL is a VERY bad idea. EarlyMon


You must already have your phones msl code for this to work



Click the link below to download DFS. Its a fully working demo

that you can use as many times as you want plus its better then CDMA Workshop and totally free


Download CDMA Tool DFS software.


DIRECTIONS


Using your dialer dial *983*87274#
Choose Only Diag or if your only internet is tether (like me)
Choose All Functions



Open DFS and wait till the countdown completes

If you did not see which com port your phone installed to. Dont worry DFS knows.

Click on the port button




Now in the port list look for ZTE Handset Diagnostic Interface and double click it once there's a green circle next to it its activated.




Find the SPC box and type in your MSL code



Click the blue circle next to the word SPC to send the unlock code


If you entered it correctly this is what it will say on the log
window




Click on the programing tab to get to the SPC edit area



From here go down below SPC where it says STR and enter any six digit number you want your MSL to be in the white box.



The last thing to do is to click the red write button and your

finished changing your MSL just reboot your phone for changes to take effect
You can also click reset in DFS to reboot



TO CHECK IF IT WORKED




When phone reboots open DFS
Go to place where you input the MSL code and test your new code and see if you get the unlocked successful text in the log.

Or find a place that needs your MSL code in your phone and try it.

If it works open dialer again and enter *983*87274# and this time choose AT or usb will not work.



TIPS


Write down the original MSL code in case you need to change it back later.

I am not sure if your new MSL has to be 6 digits or not.

The MSL can only be numbers.

I would call the dial code leaving out the last # first
Then in your call list hold down on the number click edit
before call and just add the last # so you dont have to
remember the code or dial it.

If you enter the wrong MSL more then twice your phone will ether freeze or reboot.

I am not sure if you have to be rooted or not

I take no responsibility if you mess up your phone doing this if that is even possible.

Find the SPC box and type in your MSL code
Click the blue circle next to the word SPC to send the unlock code

If you entered it correctly this is what it will say on the log

window





Locate the nam tab




Now its time to backup your original prl in case one of the flashed prl's cause you to completely lose signal as to where you cant update prl from the phone its self.
Click the blue button labeled read under the prl section.
Once your prl shows up in between the box above the read/write buttons and the world enabled, click save and save it someplace safe.



Now that's out of the way its time to flash a prl to your handset.

Ether put all of your downloaded .prl's into the prl folder located in the DFS installation folder. (this allows them to show up under the local tab in the prl area). or just click the load button and navigate to where you downloaded them.



Once you have the prl that you want to flash loaded click the red write button to flash it to your phone.



The log box should look like this in the picture below.If everything went ok every thing in list will say ok.



The final step is to reboot your phone click the reset button at the top if you don't reset you will not have a signal at all




If everything was successful open dialer again and enter *983*87274# and this time choose AT or usb will not work.

RESOURCES

The prl files can be found here

I am not sure if you have to be rooted or not

(Once I download all the prl files Ill rar them and upload them all in one rar so you can put them on in the prl folder of DFS so you will have them all)


I take no responsibility if you mess up your phone doing this if that is even possible.

maybe, maybe not changing the prl works on all phones the only problem you mite have is the dial code so try the dial code in my guide if it dosent do anything then you will have to look up how to put ur phone in diagnostics mode i know the samsung transform ultra has a different dial code because i just helped a frien do this last night

so reaserch to find the dial code for your phone if mine dosent work if you cant figure it out ask me an dill see what i can do

So I've seen people borrow 3G information from donor phones and put them on other phones, like, umm, the Touch Pro 2. I figure this would help those rebels...

i updated to the 60687 prl and it seemed to have added at least 100kb/s and this is at home where i barely get signal so i'm going to check how fast it is at work to see if it actually makes a big difference. the cdma signal also seems to be more stable. the file isn't in that link so this is where i found it Sprint released a couple of new PRL's - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

I'm just going to throw this out there. I havn't done any regular testing however I have found that the time of day makes a HUGE difference in speed as well. for me I've gone from .15Mbps @ 12:43PM to 1.9Mbps & 131ms (peak) @ 4:50AM that's with stock boost PRL. I'm going to manually update to the 60687 and see how that compares.. Probably won't get another early morning test in because I'm usually asleep at this hour. Ok so I just updated the PRL its now 5:16am and I have reached 2.01mps thats pretty consistent too. that 1.9 from before seemed like a freak accident. The new network graph has a much more stable look / average to it. There is a definate improvement. Very curious to see how this performs in the afternoon. Thanks for the how to aenoch!

Works great on the LG Marquee. Didn't even need use the hidden menu when changing prl. Just plug the phone in, set COM port, enter msl in spc box, click the spc blue button and BAM! It picked up my phone and I proceeded to change the prl. Worked like a charm.

Cheers aenoch. Thanks for the TUT.

Special thanks go out to lMonsterl for taking the time to share his wisdom with me and give some pointers. Thx Bro

My signal improve as well as my call clarity. I have read all the posts denoucning the fact that changing the PRL will not improve your speed or blah...blah...blah...blah, but don't believe it. It even got rid of the annoying echo I had when I used my speaker phone.

The only fall back was that it deactivated my phone service, but I could still access the Internet being tethered using PDAnet. This is probably a new featured they installed with the lastest updates and probably why I can't root this phone unless I go back to an older version. When you go back to reactivate your phone service, make sure you cancel the updating PRL or it will put your old PRL back on the phone.

Was your phone in DM and unlocked when you typed in the new code in DFS? After you type in the new code, you have to write it to the phone before it will stick. If the phone is not unlocked on the DFS log screen, nothing will change in your settings.

It will work for your phone... however yes you will need different prls... boost mobile is a subsidiary of sprint and uses the same network... which is why we can switch between each carriers prls... ill try doing some research on your carrier to see if there is a compatible network for you guys to use

Did you ever wind up finding a linux equivalent to cdma workshop? I've been running ubuntu 12.04 have to say some of the tools around these parts are not linux friendly

Does the program QPST 2.7 Build 323 work for changing the prl's on the ZTE Warp? I found a video on XDA about this software, and it looks easier (I think). Also which prl would you recommend for me, I live in the mtns. of northern Va, (kind of close to a major city, but my friends who have Verizon, and Straight talk get way better reception than I do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Just do what I did and ask a friend running Sprint what his prl is and use that. I was running 60686 and he was on 60690. When I changed to 60690 where I live (NorCal) it definitely was a good change. Your region makes all the difference

I'm now on 60690 prl. My friends Sprint phone is running here in Sacramento so I thought I should give it a shot. Nice numbers compared to 60686 I was previously on

On Montrose server since it was the one it found on its own. Not the closest though by a long shot. Screenshot is with 60711 running. Even better than 60690!

Cool Changing PRL and MSL

I used the root guide on this forum a long time ago and it was quite helpful, now, since I've been browsing around reading different forums, my interest has peaked about this subject. I posted a new thread on changing carriers for the WARP but if I could improve overall reception and speed I'll stay with Boost. I live in Alabama (semi-rural) and want to know how to find out what PRL number sets will be best for me. If any one has that information I would appreciate some direction. Thanks.

Well, I think you should start out by asking around to friends and family in your area, that are using Sprint, what prl's they are using and flashing those in. My girlfriend has a warp and she is on 61008 straight from boost and its blazing fast in our house. I was on 60686 from boost and not so fast. My friend on Sprint had 60690, and when I flashed that I picked up about 300kb in dl speed which I initially thought was great. For S's & G's I flashed 60711 and gained yet again and decided to stay with it. Every region is different in prl strengths so just start somewhere and play around with it. Changing is so quick and easy it won't take you long to find it

I asked a couple of my friends and they are like, "what the hell are you talking about"? None of them have a clue. Is there anywhere on the net that can give me that sort of information for this region or can I just start off with the numbers you guys have used?

Default A prl update about my phone

Alright, after trying to work this thing thru, I finally asked the advise from my friend nOve. We changed the prl from the stock Boost number to 60690.
We then then tried something different. We went in, and changed the Vocoder port setting to "WILD".
My phone had significant increase here at home. I went from 0-1 bars to 2-4, with 3G.What an increase from what I had.
We ran some speed tests, and it averaged out at 125 to 200 on dl, and 30 to 50 on Upl. (I was really happy with that). nOve told me to keep an eye on that, and watch it for a day or so.
So, the next morning, I'm heading to work (towards DC), and no signal, no 3G. I'm right on top of towers in metropolitan DC. I still get calls, and text, just no data.
I talk to my buddy(nOve) and we switch the Vocoder setting back to EvRC, and BAMMMM!!!!!
Signal like no tomorrow!! Constant 5 bars! 3G out the yang! I did a speed test this morning and was getting 275 on dl and 124 on upl.
We're gonna try another prl number and play with the port settings again. I want to hit the "BIG BANG" numbers!
My many thanks to my friend. For all of his help and advise. He's not only helped me get better service, but given me great advise and tips on my ZTE WARP!
When I showed my phone to my (business) partner (who is an avid Iphone user), all he could say was, " Holy S--t Man, That's Awesome! I'm dumping this thing!"
Thank you nOve, keep up the great work.
