New optimus said to use lgnpst, which makes total sense, but wasn't clear as to whether or not to JUST provide the prl file to lgnpst, or if other files have to be provided as well.

How did you flash it?????????????

I'm sitting here in LGNPST, wondering if i need to use the upgrade tab, or the prl tab, and if so, do I just flash the PRL itself, or other things with it, or what?

Okay, but I don't want to re-flash a stock 2.2.1 rom with the BIN file and so on, and have to redo custom recovery, sense rom, all my settings, etc etc etc just for a PRL file. are you saying that's necessary?

You made it sound like you went back to stock by letting lgnpst overwrite with a new bin file, etc. are you able to provide a much greater amount of detail? I'm asking if *in addition* to the PRL file, if you also had listed in LGNPST the bin file and the scr file, or if you *just* had the prl file listed.

Ok guys sorry for the delay, I went to eat.

Yes just do what teh dude did, click the prl tab and put in the 3020.prl and start. No messing up your phone, like blax I did it the long way, using upgrade, however I did that because I was not sure if my custom rom was hindering my prl update so I returned my phone back to factory, did that last night waited till this morning to see if the prl would update. no go on that plan.
So this morning I updated the prl and "tried" to update to rooted stock, thereby jumping forward a step on the way to reinstalling my custom rom.

but ended up scrubbing my esn and had to go the "really long" way to getting service back and updating everything.

If you just do the prl update you will not need to worry about any of that unless you unplug phone while its doing its thing.

OK well i'll try it in a bit lol. I wanna switch to GNM's recovery so i can do a real full phone + sd-ext backup for once, and then i'll flash this, just to cover myself if something goes awry. but before that, i gotta start laundry and run errands lol. sorry i was so impatient with you blaxican. sometimes we all just expect answers instantaneously i guess lol.


YAYYY NEW OPTIMUS FOR TEH CONFIRMSS!!! K still gotta run errands lol.

Well, I flashed it and nothing fried (lol), but I have yet to see 3g. Still good ol' 1xRTT.

I had also tried switching to EvDo only, and it just killed service, so i switched it back to CDMA Auto (PRL). Tried CDMA Only, but obviously that's pointless I'm pretty sure lol.

well it was intended as a funny quip, considering you were worried that was the reason for the smile but also because as teh dude found if you dont have 3g enabled towers you still wont get them. but if you go to an area with the 3g towers you will have it.

I did? Wow cool didn't even know it. LOL. Makes sense/seems self evident though, now that you mention it. Too bad I'm concerned about gas enough to want to avoid driving around the metroplex for a few hours just to try it out haha.

the spc is different for each phone, if you have cdmaworkshop use that to find your spc.
or just use adb shell or terminal emulator and type in


getprop ril.MSL


just like that, caps are required

I was going to post a cdma workshop tutorial, but it figured out that my demo license expired and I'm not paying for the full version right now lol. Tried that adb shell command out of curiousity even though I already have my SPC, and it took it, but it didnt gimme any feedback other than the typical repeat of the command that you give.

hmm through adb shell isnt working here either but you can get it by putting your esn into CheckESNFree.com
select metro and it will calculate your spc

How i said, when i got to school i had 3g already.. i think my phone did the update automatically because i never updated the prl... if you want to see if theres 3g in your are try to put the 3020 prl in your phone manually with lgnpst how everyone is doing it??? and dont worry if metro pcs is getting 3g then they wont just put it in someplaces they are going to put it everywhere...

Im in miami too. First i tried the *228 but was still in 3019, then i downloaded the 3020 prl from the link on the first page and just put it in the prl tab in lgnpst, clicked start and had 3020 but my "Mobile network type" is still CDMA and no signs of 3g life, guess we will just have to wait.

did u write a new spc to your phone? the spc that esn site gives is the one ur phone came with from lg.
and that number is very important if u brick your esn or lose your data connection. you need your 10digit phone#@mymetropcs.com as user name and the original spc as password

No, nothing has changed with my phone. My spc is still the same. I haven't had any need to retrieve my SPC--that's what I thought I made pretty clear. All along, I was trying your alternate methods of obtaining my SPC, ***even though I already have it saved from prior retrieval***, just because I was curious, like I stated above. So when I said "it doesn't work," that means the website didn't work. Saying the website didn't work means I that when I put in my MEID, the website says it doesn't recognize my MEID. So, the whole issue is moot, because I was just curious anyway, since, like I said, I already got the information a while back via CDMA workshop. Have I made it clear this time?

EDIT: The above probably seems unkind. I was irritated because by what you had asked and said to me, it seems as if you hadn't read what I originally stated about my efforts in trying your suggestions.
