    ok somedood that didnt work idk what to do
  4. Weird. You connected to it fine in lgnpst didn't you? When you chose you com and click ok does that box disappear?

    Try using a different usb port, or even rebooting your pc...

    got meid reset and esn back now i need to program and i dont have another phone to call them on lol wt*
  6. Call them on it and pretend your on another phone and write down all the numbers they give you. you start with ##626* and enter 587846(i think) and it opens program menu, first number is supposed to be your phone number, second number is the one you need, just write it all down and pretend it all worked to the metro agent and hang up and go thru it yourself.

    I love how they assume people are to stupid to do this and you have to lie to them to get your numbers, lol.

    lol yeah i know what you mean im on my 7th xbox and i got my phone working thefirst time when i call the crazy ariabic gave me wrong min by one number lol im doing prl update now then back to root and no more cm 7 till all the kinks are worked out lol
  15. There isn't really any kinks to cm7, don't be afraid. Besides you now have your MIN and the know-how to completely restore. Just make sure your data is working before you switch away from the stock rom again.

    I don't know what messed up your phone in the first place but it wasn't cm7, my guess is a bad recovery.

    how can you fine out if data working i just did prl 3020 upgrade and phone works fine so yeah i mean ill figure it out i prefer c-r 2.2.1 over cwm recovery img what would you suggest to use and or do
  17. Just turn off wifi and launch your browser, if the 1x icon pops up top then you have data, no icon, no data and the page wont load.

    I would use GNM or CWM. Just don't use Rom Manager to install CWM.

    and how do you fix the screen wake up cuz mine would freeze at wake up this is my last ?
  19. on first boot menu>cyanogensettings>display turn off screen on/off animations. Any other lag on unlock can be mostly fixed with a live wallpaper. Reppards rom has both of these by default.

    Okay im stuck as hell here too. I did the downgrade from 2.2.2 too 2.2.1 using lgnpst. My phone responds to qxdm but says error response recieved from target for both esn and meid, rest is fine. I cant get nothing....
  21. Did you confirm in about phone that meid is zeroed?

    Also it sounds like you might not be entering the commands properly. the meid needs to look like 0xA000043345746A

    23:19:56.988 RequestNVItemRead esn
    23:19:57.144 DIAG TX item:
    23:19:57.144 esn = 0x00000000
    23:19:57.144 DIAG RX item:
    23:19:57.144 esn = 0x807Exxxx
    23:20:22.307 RequestNVItemRead meid
    23:20:22.417 DIAG TX item:
    23:20:22.417 meid = 0x0000000000000000
    23:20:22.417 DIAG RX item:
    23:20:22.417 meid = 0x00A000002870xxxx
  24. you cant write esn, thats leftover in the instructions fro another device I believe.

    This should be alright... is your spc still 000000?
