Download Android Terminal from the marketplace make sure you have root first then open your terminal.. It will prompt you for superuser permission select allow then on the terminal type in su this will give you access to your os so you can type your commands. Next you want to type getprop ril.MSL and hit enter.. The terminal will now show you your msl... Hope this helps!!!

Even with Terminal w/superuser permissions... you will not be able to find 6 digit MSL..

from my phones msldiag.txt

Diagnostic output:
Running as root.
Stopping rild...
Asking for MSL...
Starting rild...
Done.

Diagnostic error:

Default Ahhhh

I have done all of that, i have even copied the file system to a pc and gone through most of the files with a hex editor, NADA, believe me if it were as easy as a getprop ril.MSL i woulda had it by now and explained how to do it. The nv ram is locked so i cant get to those files ( NV_001, NV_002, etc. ) the only thing that i even found that was close was the fact that CDMA says that the full version can calculate the msl using the phone serial and such... this blows.

I used the alogcat app and method here (second post) Faster 3g Mod.

start alogcat, ##3282#, edit, put in random msl, back to alogcat filter using the phrase msl, msl was listed in green text

For those that need a visual guide. here it is:
Assumption: You have installed "Alogcat" from Marketplace and know how to hit the "Home" button to move between running apps.


Start Alogcat and pre apply MSL Filter



Hit HOME Button and
Bring up Dialer
Input ##3282#





Press Edit





Put in random 6 digits (msl)






Quick eyes will notice this message





Hit BACK Button and Hit Alogcat Icon to
restore the 'pre filtered results'




Thanks to amedasu for the verbose guide and HUGE Find!

Next You may want to Study PRL files and how to use them in xPureEvilx's Guide.

That's not the MSL, that's the screen unlock code - totally different.
