Default MobileAP on 2.3.6 generic version ?, where is the APK code?

Several months ago, for a short time Samsung had a 2.3.6 generic version on their website. We downloaded it, but it caused picture messages to fail, and required a work around to get market functioning. Everyone said don't use it, but it had this good app called MobileAP; to allow a mobile hot spot, or wifi tether.

The new simple install MetroPCS version of 2.3.6 can be written over the generic version. That means it does not cost anything to try out the generic version, and export the good apps from it.

I tried to find the mobileAP apk, but couldn't. Anyone want to share ideas on where it could be hiding.

Besides odin, you can get your phone back to stock by using the Metropcs official tool called MetroPCS_R720_Admire_simple_upgrade_tool_FF18

You could try backing it up in Titanium Backup, unzipping the tar.gz file that has the .apk and tada! Like I said in the other post, if you get it , then upload it!

well, not as we bought the phone, but with the MetroPCS update tool, I'd call it stock 2.3.6.
