    A Verizon phone can be used on Boost. You'll have to use one of the usual suspects of donors. Once you get the donor up and working you'll have to pull the prl off the phone and the details about profile 0 and 1.

    Once you get all that off the phone manually program all that into the lg and upload the prl file to it too. Make sure the phone is allowed to roam. Most Verizon phones only have one profile. If needed create a second profile if there isn't one or if there is one make sure to activate it. The mdn/msid combo needs to be put in manually too.

    LG phones are notoriously hard to work with. You'll probably get 1xRTT speeds without much trouble... getting it on 3G would be the trick you're after. Some have reported that using LGNPST to do all the programming will take care of things but I haven't done it first hand. I just stay away from LG phones.

    Good luck.

    Virgin Mobile is even more difficult to get a phone flashed to because of the odd way that they handle mms.

    Yeah I know. But I'll be running my own build of cm9 on it, so it should be fine. My sprint marquee running aokp receives mms perfectly. :D

    Root is a breeze. There's an all-in-one winderz batch file, which exploits perms on /data/gpscfg/gps_env.conf.

    Here's the meat of it:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. adb shell "rm /data/gpscfg/gps_env.conf 2>/dev/null"
    3. adb shell "ln -s /data /data/gpscfg/gps_env.conf"
    4. adb reboot
    5. adb wait-for-device
    6. adb shell "echo 'ro.kernel.qemu=1' > /data/local.prop"
    7. adb reboot
    8.  
    Also has a CWMT (touch) recovery with working adb.

    Best root experience EVAR!!! :thumb:

    So far, I've gotten everything in CM9 to work except GPS and 3G. Hopefully 3G won't be that hard ...

    I want to flash my Note 2 to Boost Mobile. I have a donor phone. My question is will have I to change the Modem/Radio on the Note to a Sprint/Boost one?

    thanks
