Default Hidden Menu

I have shabbymod and I seen that Hidden Menu is on there, but ive never seen it on the phone, what does it do and how do i access it? I guess it could be a possibility since its a "Hidden Menu" that you cant find it...

I think this is what you wanted:


"Hello all! Today I will be helping you boost your 3G speeds! This tutorial will be for Windows so please do the equal on mac/linux

You will also need a copy of adb!(Comes with one click root and shabbymod)
First please connect your phone to your computer.
On your phone enable usb debugging!
Now open a command prompt (Start->Programs->Accessories)
Navigate to your copy of adb via Cd path/to/adb
type adb.exe shell getprop ril.MSL
now on your phone go to make call
Dial ##3282#
Enter your MSL number you got from the command prompt.

a menu will then pop up, scroll to others, scroll to multimedia. Change the ones that say proxy address to 0.0.0.0 then exit (there's two of them ;D)
RTSP Proxy address changes from:

rtsp.vog.sprintpcs.com

to:
0.0.0.0
and
HTTPPD Proxy address changes from:

pd.vog.sprintpcs.com

to:
0.0.0.0
Your 3g speeds will now increase significantly!
HOPE THIS HELPS OUT!
All Credit Goes To interdpth!

its a dial menu. you dial something like ##3282# and brings up a data menu. you need your spc code to acces it tho. be carefull tho cus you could mess up your phone and thats why its hidden by samsung.

It's supposed to increase 3g speeds if done correctly. Using the hidden menu to change any settings on the phone can be EXTREMLEY harmful to your phone's service if done incorrectly, so use at your own risk.

Default Re: Hidden Menu

I'm running cm7 with katokernel and tried it. I dont think any other roms except shabbymod you can do that. I tried on every rom except cm9. I think shabby added something while building the rom. Alittle off topic but did shabby ever complete the roms after 0.9 and not have a problem with them?
