Default Update prl using QPST

This is what I did I have LG esteem
1. Make sure USB debugging is enabled
2. Download USB driver http://www.mediafire.com/?f2p9kneghvatdao and install on your computer
3. Download 3020 prl or New Prl 3022 Credit goes to LockLady OR even newer PRL 3023 latest prl 3024
4. Download and install qpst 2.7
qpst 2.7 the first qpst download did not work for me but this one did but popped up as trojan but it works http://www.mediafire.com/?gh98iae3vrc49yg
5. Connect phone to computer and enable internet connection on phone.
6. Open device manager expand ports and make note of what com port your USB device is on

7. Open up qpst configuration if com port is not shown select add port and enter com# (# being the one seen @ device manager)


8. Select service programming (phone must be selected to continue)
after phone selection choose this FFA3100-1900 hit ok


9. On the main menu setting tab click read from phone and will obtain phone info it will ask for ur spc

10. Spc code can be obtained through cdma workshop or by using checkesnfree.com or at http://www.whiterabbit.org/android/ Get Spc
11. Look for roam tab and there will be an option under preferred roaming to search for new prl locate it and select write it will ask for ur spc code again


note I'm not responsible for bricking ur phone I've done this before and familiar with the software even though this quick tut should be noob friendly

If one updates to 3024 prl and there are no 3G towers in their area, what then? No phone use?

Confirming this works and installs the new 3024.prl!


We'll done.


One thing was not clear or stated on your steps, at some point the QPST will ask what 'base model' your phone is. If you're using the LG Esteem select CARD5500-1900 from the 'base model' drop down list.

Hope that assist with that step.


Thanks ang great job again!

I used these steps to update the prl to 3024..there were two steps that were not included which I discussed a couple of post above.

One was; after connecting your device, to slide down the notification bar and select the usb option on the drop down menu, once you have selected that option, another screen will open asking what type of connection you want, make sure you select 'INTERNET CONNECTION' which will put your phone in full USB DEBUGGING mode and allow QPST to see your device and for your device manager (on mincrosoft windows) to show your phones port and tell you your com port #

the other step left out was for telling you what your 'base model' of the Esteem is, which you'll need to select from a drop down menu when QPST ask (it did for me, others it might not, but just in case). The 'base model' is: = CARD5500-1900

Yes, it did for me as well, that's how I knew what base model it was but after one of the steps it said your base model is not selected, please select your base model..maybe it was just me...idk

So having the 3024 prl installed. I've not noticed any 3g connection yet. Yes, I'm in the 3G coverage as the LG optimus my friend has, has 3G..

my question is, does the 3023 better over the 3024 or what's the diference, does anyone know yet between the two prl's?

If you are getting 4g it wont switch to 3g. It will work in steps 4g- of no 4g then 3g- if no 4g and 3g then 1x. Personally i have not lost 4g at all. South florida has great 4g signal

Hey are the PRL's location specific? I won't hurt my local coverage if I put one of the new ones on my phone, will it?

Thanks in advanced.

Yes, This I know. But when I had the Indulge and in my house theres one spot 4G just wimps out in and 1x would kick on.

I go to that same spot and the Esteem shows 4G but not light up with green text or the signal bar isn't green either. (not sure what the green vs white 4G icon and status signal bar means)

so on that note, even though its 4G with white icon and singal status bar it diesn't switch to 1x or 3g and I get not data even though it 'shows' 4G (white not green)

I have read somewhere that green represents good data connection to google sync services. Which is why I think it's only Android related.

I got the white 4g for about 10 minutes after i did the manual update amd when i first turned my phone on. Now i only get it for few seconds when switching from wifi to 4g. That might have something to do with searching for 4g signal. Today i was in a building with thick cement walls and it switched to 1x for me.

It came from an optimus M but it doesnt matter since it is just a signal file that updates the phone with metros towers. To go back dial *228 and pick update roaming list

I havnt had any problems with this prl

Where does it say "base model CARD5500-1900" on the QPST? I still couldn't figure where the base model drop down list at?

Default No luck here!

I did this to an LG optimus succesfully
Trying it on this Esteem but cant get it to work.
It wont detect my phone.
I went to device manager checked the port n its there on (COM7).
i noticed a difference on your screen shot from what i see on my hardware list.
Yours has "LGE Android platform USB GPS NMEA port" and "LGE Android Platform USB serial port."
On my list i only see the second "LG SERIAL PORT"
I added the port (COM7)
Then service programming shows "Unknown phone, ESN, and phone number"
When i click okay it says "Online connection failure, Unspecified error"

Just wanted to say that the site blaxican initially suggested for determining the SPC code (checkesnfree.com) was unable to get my code after I put in my ESN. But the site that fylpee suggested (android - whiterabbit.org) worked perfectly though.

Buddylo, when you plug your phone in and check device manager under ports, do you see "LGE ANDROID PLATFORM USB GPS NMEA PORT [COMXX]"?

I've been having a hard time pushing this PRL to my phone.
Drivers seem to be up and running since i just rooted my phone.
I noticed it shows that "GPS NMEA PORT" on the screen shot instructions.
I just dont see it on mine.

It didn't matter on my end, nor the diferent phone number it showed me on COM3 (which appears not to be your actual phone number)

Just make sure you choose "card5500-1900" when given the chance, or manually.

It seemed to be dangerous once you apply it, and not really worth it fro now I guess.

This can't be the 3G people have been talking about because this is useless. What speeds are you guys pulling on 3G? With 3G on the speed test app, I only got 200kbps down..right after pulling 3000kbps down on 4G.

As for me, I'm not rooted yet (waiting on something more oficial), but I upgraded to 3024 PRL, and haven't been able to go into 1x or 3G ever since. How do you force CMDA?

33463 West Palm Beach @ 1.5Mbps on 4GLTE

Did that, tested speeds, and didn't notice much change on speed tests. Basically I rarely go over 1.5Mbps on 4G, and over 300Kbps on "3G" on South Florida West Palm Beach.

Thanks to original poster for the tutorial though.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I don't see the option of choosing "card5500-1900"
@Qpst configuration i dont see "FF/SURF..........." under phone it shows "(804e5c19)"
under link it shows "38400 baud"
When i go to start client and service programming
Shows
Phone - Unknown
ESN - 804e5c19
phone number - Shows my MIN

What am i missing? Im going crazy here!
