    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...

    Diagnostic error:

    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.

    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!

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