Default prl update pop-up?

I got a pop-up that said my prl was going to be updated and there was an "ok" button that I could click. I was scared of the unkown so I clicked the home button and haven't been prompted again.

Anyone else get this? Is it safe to click "ok"? Don't want to click something from boost that's going to unroot me.

Prl update won't unroot. And even if it did, this phone will ALWAYS have root... We have Odin

Same thing happened tome. Its just a force of a prl update. I did it and it just changed my prl to 61009. Weve always got cdma workshop if you wanna change prls anyways.

Yep, 61009 is the newest PRL. You could always try the corporate PRL's too.

As for CDMA to change the PRL, that's no longer needed. There's a way to change it with a free app now.

Here's a TUT on how to do it with the Prevail.

Do a Google search and find out.

Edit:

Looks like 12121 but I just did a quick search. You may find a newer one with a more detailed search.

Your prl (preferred roaming list) tells the phone what towers it can use. The Corporate one(s) include(s) some that are excluded to boost users

PRL=preffered Roaming List Its basically a list of what towers you connect to. The corporate ones have more I would guess because sprint gives preference to postpaid costumers and gyps the Boost and prepaid. So maybe you could get better service. Maybe not.

Will PRL's from other carriers work on Boost?

edit: I found this on XDA, it's for the Galaxy Nexus, but PRL changing, to my understanding, is the same from phone to phone. It seems easy enough if it could work on the Prevail.
