Default AnyCut Metro PCS Hidden Menu

I was browsing through any cut and I stumbled upon Metro PCS Hidden Menu. I made a short cut. Once I opened the short cut it took me to a MENU (No Surprise There) but it containded many things

http://www.flickr.com/photos/75709851@N07/6820494945/

I entered network select

http://www.flickr.com/photos/75709851@N07/6820495631/

The thing that got my attention is; What is the LTE USB Disable/Enable DO? and why is the Disable the DEFAULT?

Please explore this hidden menu and publish what you discover here.

That's DEFINITELY possible but what would "USB" mean?... Hmmm, can't think of anything. Wish we had a MetroPCS Corporate Tech among us... can you say "The REAL LG Esteem Optimizer!" LoL

Well I messed around with it a little bit, i could not get it to work.

-If you enable LTE USB and connect it under "Internet Connection" it tries to install a driver "LG UDC-AHB Subsystem"

I turns out this was a driver for the LG VL600 LTE Modem for Verizon Wireless

-This driver was defective and a Firmware update was released to solve the problem

Does it let you know where the firmware update is? I have just made a backup for this so I am all set and ready to go. Since this is the HiddenMenu the settings are stored in the apk which will be reset with a restore if you guys are stuck. NOW!!!, since we know that the initial driver it tries to install is invalid and that there is a firmware update, we have to figure out where the firmware update is. I will be doing some searching.

Do share

EDIT: Go to Network Mode, and you can enable CDMA only, or LTE only mode. This could be used to disable 4g when you don't want/need it.

Do you mean you can have 4g on all day and it wont drain as much? If so can you tell me how you did that?

I know its been said BUT PLEASE DONT ENABLE THAT MODE, if you are to enable it and forget to change it back and lets say your phone gets bricked, unless you have cwm you wont be able do anything nothing that setting stays in the phone NAM even though its for modem it completely changes the regular usb mode so no matter what you do unless you disable that LTE usb mode your computer will never recognize the phone had this happened to me couple of months ago and i ended up installing drivers for hours many different ones and nothing would recognize the phone so just wanted to tell you guys my experience since this forums is awesome and cares.

The only PROPER way to get the driver for this device is either...

A. If anyone knows someone with a VL600 and can copy down the driver for us

B. Someone GETS the VL600 and downloads the proper driver, then uses VZ
Access Manager and the LG VL600 Software Upgrade Tool to ENSURE we
have the most recent driver.

P.S.: This is in fact going to be a USB Tether Mode available. Enabling this
option will harm you device in ANY way. In order to attemp to install the
driver properly you MUST connect to PC, enable "Internet Connection"
mode, THEN enable "LTE USB". If you enable "TLE USB" before entering
"Internet Connection" mode the computer will not even attempt to
recognize the phone. So this means if you DO enable this option, before
you can have it connect to the computer again u MUST disable the
"LTE USB" option before your computer will recognize it.

But don't you have to reboot the phone again when you want 4g. Is it simply like lte onoff ?

Well I'm still experimenting it. Go create a shortcut in any cut and look for LTE Configuration. Then open LTE configuration , select "system selection " and for scan duration = put 3-5min. And the rest of settings put 2mins. I'm testing it to see how effective is.

AFAIK, it should just go ahead and enable and disable immediately like Plug N' Play.

Anything that can be configured to reduce battery drain is defiantly a plus!

Thanks for your work on this ya'all

Default whatever became of this sleuthing?

Hi, anyone come up with anything interesting?
There's a ton of settings to play with, like:
Data, enable admin.

As far as the driver itself, i used the LGMobile Support Tool to get the latest updates for both Revo N Esteem. I have them both unpacked and sitting in computer, but don't see anything obvious pertaining...
FYI this tool is a biatch to use--it always wants to re-download AND reinstall usb drivers, ditto for phone update. Re the latter, phone can't be disconnected before download is complete (all 290˝MB) & u see the unpacking process beginning.

I also used VZAaccess to obtain latest VL600 update.
Funny, this program detects esteem(connected to usb) in both Internet & Mass Storage MODES(the latter which doesn't work with PG's kernel & rom),
BUT NOT when Lte Usb Enabled....
NEITHER does windows(7 64bit Home Premium), it just pops up Unknown Device in Device Manager.

As well, LGPNST is no help here. Even when pointing at the dll from Revo download, it only recognizes phone as Esteem model.

As far as BOTH the LG & VZ downloads, i don't see unpacked folders totaling anywhere near ˝ the size of the downloads...almost 300 & 90 respectively...w/o even factoring in that unpacking should produce even larger size.
And yes, i searched computer thoroughly.

I was tempted to try scattershot approach-- apply Revo update, followed by Esteem's(this would create additional ZVC headache).

PS VZAccess, while installing, did throw a message of 'Updating Firmware', so an option could be to try this while phone is connected, because once phone is connected, checking for update only returns message of no update needed.
This program does know it's been installed, so it would entail uninstalling & reinstalling.

But at the end of the day, that seems an overly unnecessary risk w/ little benefits-- besides bricking phone-- the update could just hard code verizon access settings...and there are so many third party usb n wireless tether apps available.

FYI anyone playing with VZAccess, after phone is recognized--prompting dialog to insert current Verizon number, the program freezes(since no verizon number can be provided) and can only be closed thru 3-finger salute Task Manager...and even then it reappears there-- it requires 2 or 3 closes plus the final confirm prompt from the program itself.

Irregardless of the Enable LTE USB, setting, there are so many other hidden settings which could benefit us...

if some of you more knowledgeable Gods wish to sleuth around for the rest of us...
