    ^ I believe so. But personally, I'd use a custom rom to do it. Then there should be a couple of extra files to flash to get your metro voice / text working. Not sure, MikeKelso would know, and he'll probably be checking this out at some point.

    Well the roms are (usually) downloaded from the internet. I am using MikG, which is a modified version of stock 2.3. You just wipe and flash (as in the Rooting for Dummies Guide). There are also files (such as VR-SuperWipe or Caulkin's Format All) that you can flash and they wipe everything for you.

    Just make sure that you make a nandroid before (!!!) and backup anything you need (contacts, sms text messages, data for apps).
    You can backup contacts to google, sms with SMS backup (app) and apps with Titanium Backup (app).

    Just read through the Rooting for Dummies guide a couple of times, it's probably the most complete guide anywhere online (that I've found) for rooting your evo (and anything about rooting as well).

    Sorry I'm late guys. There is no way to unprogram your phone from metro as far as talk and text. When u flash a rom, usually the only thing that u lose is data ans mms. Sometimes only mms. But there are 2 zip files u flash can use to fix data and mms after a rom. 1 is for sense roms that are ota based. And a second for Aosp roms. These are used to program data and mms for metro PC's after flashing a rom that may have undid it.

    if you go to the top of this thread and go to the same page on XDA that has the metrodroid ROM on it,there are also .zip files used to get MMS and DATA working after flashing other ROMS..not ALL roms will work with these .zip files though....im running the new SYNERGY ROM right now..but i found that the provided .zip files are working for me,so im trying to figure out metro's mms settings to manually program it,since im using a sense ROM,im able to use programming codes...such a pain in the ass though...there needs to be more dev's working on metro-stuff...of maybe if i wasnt such a noob i could do it myself..lol a man can dream right.lol

    So to be clear are you saying the mms is not working with the files you added?

    mikekelso421 Well-Known Member


    Correct. But only with SOME roms.the aosp.zip has worked with any aosp Rom I have tried. But the sense zips seem to be hit or miss. Like the azrael sense Rom works perfect after flashing the sense mms .but like if I try the mms fix on myns warm or synergy,my mms doesn't work.

    i have my evo 4g on boost mobile i want to know if i put a costom rom on my phone and root the phone it will stay on boost mobile or i have to do it again thank you for you time :D

    mikekelso421 Well-Known Member

    i never used boost mobile..but assuming that its the same concept,you should try to find a boost mobile compatible rom for your phone...or maybe there is a .zip file similar to the metro programming .zip for boost mobile..
    as far as talk and text goes,flashing a rom SHOULDNT screw with that..BUT as far as web and mms goes,im almost certain you will need to re-program..but again,ive never had boost mobile and know nothing about it...sorry i couldnt be more help.:confused:

    Hello everyone. As with anything I do, I do lots of research b4 plunging head first n2 the unknown. I really wanna get an evo on metro and am no stranger to rooting and flashing find... what I'm wondering is which Rom is the sense Rom by azrael. Is it azrael x 5 or stock Rom.... I really love the sense UI... that's y I ask...

    Any help and answers would b greatly appreciated

    yea.azrael x5 is the newest release..if you go to the links i put in the top post,there is links to the .zip files you will need to get mms working after the rom flash..basically the aosp zip will get mms working on ANY aosp rom...but the zip for the sense roms is kind of hit or miss..ive used it on the azrael sense rom and it works perfectly..right now im running the new SYNERGY rom with the latest ota gingerbread build..my mms seems to work pretty well with minimal problems..but the azrael rom is flawless for everyday users..hope this helps..go to the links i posted and you will learn a little more about this :)

    Hey So You Now Have the mms working now cool. Now I am ready to try flashing the metro droid flash i have with the SYNERGY ROM. Is it possible i can get links to the right SYNERGY ROM to flash over the metro droid there are many and some looks like they will only work for evo on sprint.

    You need to boot into recovery, then flash the metro web and mms script for sense 3.70,then reboot. You should be good to go after that. Lemme know if you have any trouble.

    hey mikekelso,
    does that work with only froyo or can it work with the gingerbread roms?

    just curious.

    edit: ok after reading some of your posts i got my answer which is it is a hit or miss on sense roms. thanks mikekelso for this thread. keep up the great job.

    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    moved your thread here. i believe that you have to have someone flash this onto metro pcs for you. i'm not sure if that is correct or not.

    So I have to ask, and my searching has frustrated me beyond belief. We recently had our EVO 4gs flashed over to metro. Suddenly, our mms doesnt work. They guy that did it put cyanogen 7 on them. What im wondering is, could someone be kind enough to direct me to the tut, etc, that would include our particular system ????? Greatly appreciated...
