Does anyone know where to find the cm7 version that shady metro stores put on to do a full flash? Its cm7 rc2-MetroPcs Edition I had this done to two evos the other day one for me one for my girl. I was having so much trouble to get the ports to show up on my desktop that i said f it. I could get the drivers to install on my labtop but not desktop. and the labtop has no com ports : ( stupid netbook. The only reason i ask is im flashing one more and would rather not pay. They gave me a deal on the two for 80 since i had them rooted already. but it was a good deal cause eveywhere wanted 65 for one or places that didnt do full flash wanted 50.

yes if you read the op, there is a link for roms out of the box ready for metro. in that link there should be a version of cm7 for metro.

Thanks My whole thing is im already flashed to metro i had a metro store just do it for me since it was gonna cost me to get the esn added i just had them do the full flash since i found it cheap. They put cm7 on the phone i am trying to get the drivers to install but everything i have tried wont work to show what com port it is on in order for me to force a prl update. they have it on 02004 and i was able to get 3g on 3023 in certain areas around me. Thats really all i need i just figured if i found info on the version i have i might find out the driver issue caues when i plug the phone in it says the drivers are properly installed. And now that there is cm7 on here ##DIAG wont work to try that route if you or anyone had any ideas please let me know tia

Hey guys, I have an EVO 4g flashed to Metro PCS. I have rooted it with Revolutionary but mms is the only thing not working. Do I have to flash a Rom or is there a fix for the stock Rom? I am coming from an Ascend to the Evo so I'm lovin' it. Also what are the advantages to flashing a new Rom? Thanks. I've been building my own computers for years but this is new to me.

There is a guide in the beginning of the thread I'm pretty sure the zip to flash for mms is there. Also of you know how to use cdma workshop and qpst. There is a tutorial with pictures of what all of your data settings should be at. I wish I could tell u more but I just paid and had mine fully flashed since it was the same price as the corporate stores Houdini flash. There is a metro edition cm7 which is what they put on my phone. I searched and could not find any info on it. Try metrodroid if you like sense roms though.

No 3g kind of defeats the purpose of even having a Android phone it seems to me, Seems like a fairly straight forward deal. But cant look up phone numbers or google anything, no purchasing of apps on the fly, i really dont understand the reasoning behind going Metro. Cant be the cash, you ponied up to get the Evo and the contract. Not trolling, just looking for the benes.

next time you get something weird like that or a bug or glitch try and wipe dalvik cache and cache first that usually fixes most issues.

Chances are if u had everything working and u didn't do anything to it,its metros data cutting out. I'm in south Florida in the 4g area and it happens to my evo and even my girls optimus.

Well first off,metro has been pushing out 3g on quite a few markets. South florida included.and not to mention metros phones are crap compared to the evo. So that's a reason enough to get the evo. Even if there's no 3g..I have an 8mpxl camera as opposed to the lg esteem which has only a 5mpxl (this phone is also like only a month old)..flash player and needless to say the evo has the best developement compared to any other phone. And I have working*web,mms, GPS and All for only 50 a month. Im calling rape on sprint.I'm sorry but 80 a month for crappy sprint service that cuts out more than metros,I'm ok on that. Lol I have tested on multiple evos on sprint and my metro evo gets better signal everytime. Half of my friends can even make phone calls in their house. Its sad.

Yea ive come to the conclusion that it was just metro. But on the otherhand i know all the qpst setting for metro by heart now. Im just hoping the reason i had no service was due to them switching on more evdo towers. : )

Its the same phone. But thus week metro finally got 3g I'm my area. Regular metro phones ota the prl update. But flashed evos don't. I updated mine late night. Went from a Max of 68 kbps to a whopping 1045 Kbps..so in reality, it feels like a new phone. And I loooooove this 3g speed!

so this 3g thing. I cannot figure out why i cannot get it. Im in a 3g area can hold an ascend in one hand on 3g but my evo will not get it. I have follwed jds dfs guide on cdma tool. Followed bloodykillers data provisioning guide all my data is correct cause my web even stays between rom flashes. I just cannot get the 3g to work. The only thing i can think of is if the esn was repaired i noticed somesaid something about that causing problems. But i know the esn was good on the phone but not sure if the metro store i had add the esn would of just done that automatically. Is there a way to figure out if thats what they did? I still talk to the girl i got the phone from on a daily basis and know the esn was good she still has sprint serice but bought a new phone. anyways if anyone has any ideas let me know

To write prl? I've tried every one 3020-3025 which I'm on now. I used qpst though. I've done everything from scripts to forcing hdr. When I force hdr. Evdo will come on but I will lose signal after a minute and reboots don't bring it back have to program back to auto. And advanced settings doesn't change a thing.

Do u have cdma workshop working on your computer? If so,have your phone in diag mode. ##3424# .then follow my guide. After the last step,reboot the phone.then your evo should have 3g

I just did my buddies evo like an hour ago.no problems at all. Just follow my guide correctly and u shouldbe good.

I'll try cdma workshop too. I've done it from both cdma tool and qpst. I'll see if it makes a difference on there. They have written to the phone though. From the others. Did you have to turn hdr only for then to work? Still a no go with cdma workshop. Ive come to the sonclusion that the shady metro store i took my phone to to get the esn added just assumes all phones that are brought to them are stolen or something. I lose service when i try to force hdr and i noticed jd on xda says the meid repaired phones t=do that when in hdr it causes the phones prl to go to 0000
when miines in hdr in the settings about phone prl stays but. everytime ive tried that through qpst. ill get evdo cooverage for like two miutes then lose all service. I think i might have to do a HARD reset. and start over and have the store by me do it houdini flash and then do the data myself. If that store did repair my esn or meid what would be the purpose? to clone my phone? Is that possible on metro?

Cloning is illegal. But I'm not sure why it wont write. Did u put the phone in diag mode before trying to write the prl?

Oh i know. Its a shady store in a shady ass area. The prls write no matter what program i use i have taken my computer to 3g areas and changed frowm 3022 to 3025 and so on. now i got it at my house but it wont switch to evdo . the only time it does is when i force into hdr mode only but when i do that it stays for like a minute then i lose all service and hav to go back into qpst and re program to auto. What band is metro? Thats one thing i noticed that i think might be different i cant remember what my ascend was but my evo is 1800-2000ghz for some reason i think my ascends was like 1650-????. So maybe thats it.. What radio version are you using i want to try to control the variables so i can get to the end of this.

Hello all,

First let me say, "HAPPY THANKSGIVING!". Im a noob and I was wondering could anyone help me with a problem im having. Im having trouble with receiving and sending text messages. This just started 2 days ago. Currently I can ONLY receive and send text messages to other metro pcs phones. I CANNOT send or receive text messages to/from other carriers(at&t, verizon, t-mobile,etc.). I had the phone flashed months ago and everything had been working perfect. I have done everything possible I can think of. I just took the phone back to the person who originally flashed and still is not working. I even called metro pcs twice and had them refresh my system and still not working. Does anyone know what the problem could be? If so, what can I do to fix it. Personally I think its a software issue. The thing that is really weird is my gf has a flashed evo to metro by the same person BUT with older software and her's works perfect. Anyhow, Here's my phone info:

ANDROID VERSION: 2.3.3

BASEBAND VERSION: 2.15.00.09.01

KERNAL VERSION: 2.6.35.10-gc0a661b
htc-kernal@and18-2#1

BUILD NUMBER:
4.24.651.1 CL61076 release-keys

SOFTWARE NUMBER: SteelRom v1.08

BROWSER VERSION: WebKit/533.1

PRI VERSION: 1.77_003

PRL VERSION: 03015

Thanks in advance friends!!!!

p.s. I also want to flash to another rom. Any advice on which rom would be best for my phone on metro pcs? Thanks

have you tried any of the fixes in post #1? sometimes things just go hay-wire without any explanation and flashing one of the mms fixes might do the trick... also seems post #1 has rom recommendations as well... just browsing this thread for the first time so that's all i can come up with off the top of my head...

not sure on the steel rom if it works with metro or not. have you flashed the mms and web script? it is linked in the op. you might want to try some of the suggested roms in the op and see if they help.

if you mean mikg, then yes mikg is awesome. as for battery life, roms may play a little part in that. but, where you can really adjust how the battery is run is by using a custom kernel. if you are going to flash a kernel make sure to make a nandroid backup and only wipe dalvik cache and cache.

kernels will vary from phone to phone so it is hard to recommend one. i would try the aggressive freedom kernel and give it a few days for the kernel to settle in before moving on to the next one down the list. also you will want to get an app called setcpu to fine tune your kernel.

here are some things to read:
KERNELS For Dummies

SetCPU Guide

I have tried everything. Wiped both caches, reflashed rom, reflashed several mms scripts and still no text message to other carriers. I can still only receive and send text to metro pcs phones. Anyone have any other suggestions?

yes and no(well sort of no). yes you can root your phone and get it over to metro. but not necessarily for free. you can pay some people or even i heard metro shops will do it as well or you can buy cdma workshop (i think they are like $99). there are some cracked version you can get for free, but you have to google that. most do no work.

that i'm not sure of. i would first make sure that metro will do that for you, if you bring it in. if they will then i would say go for it. and as far as cdma, that is up to you. it looks like a very long process, but it could be fun to try it.

that is definitely a good deal. i would go that route. but they will most likely say that you can't flash other roms. but that is not true. so go to metro get your evo flashed to their network then comeback here. read the op to this thread, it has some recommendations as far as roms go. and it has some scripts that you could flash to get data and sms working on the rom you choose.
