    Turthfully I have no idea. I didn't have that issue. However only one other person has had the same issue. Please tell me step by step what you did so I can follow ur steps and approach the same issue then figure out a way through it.

    Load up the application again and check the top box where it says Device model and Comports in a Grid. Plug your phone in and tell me if the Device Model says MS690 or something else, if something else, what does it say?

    It says MS690, but I gave up and then an hour or so later, I had the 3g signal
    and market 3.0. But it updated itself, oh and right now I am using Joneidy's Gingerbread rom if that helps anyone. I was using his Sense Rom prior to that.

    Truth be told, I did want to put up screenshots but I am using a mac with parallels desktop so... I was murdering battery enough as it was and my brain with how slow my computer had become. -.-

    huh... maybe that will happen with the other user who had the same issue.. As for getting the 3G, (you lucky basta**) enjoy it. However the coverage seems to be very limited. Im just waiting and praying my area gets it soon.

    This isn't supposed to take that long, right? It's been about 30 minutes and the program has been still the entire time. As well as my phone. Is that common?

    No it should take 10 mins or less.

    try closing the program reopening it and doing it again. Make sure it looks like the pic before hitting the start button.

    So...If I'm not a lucky basta** will the 3020 strengthen my signal still? Also, will this take my phone back to stock? Oh and is the 3G actually 3G? I was reading that it was almost as slow as 1x.

    Well I noticed a slight increase in internet speed with 3020 but no 3G. No your phone will stay the same, as I said before its the same as updating your roaming list via *228. As for the 3G, I do not know by experience but people have reported a drastic difference in speed.

    Actually, I did restore a previous nand back up, from before I had the PRL 3020, and it didn't change. I basically un-rooted my phone (I thought I had over heated it in my air conditioned car, in this Texas heat) and went back to un-rooted stock 2.2. I guess that I will clarify my thoughts; for me, my PRL didn't revert when I did a restore from a previous nand back up. I can't guarantee that will be the case for everyone. :)

    Your prl like the meid and phone number is not affected by backups or restores
    If you do a back up using prl 3014 and then update your prl, to 3019 or 3020 and then go back to the back up that has 3014 you will still be on the new prl

    Right. That's what I was trying to say. :)

    That's odd cuz I remember doing a restore after a did *228 and my prl downgraded...

    its possible that metro pulled the prl update, and sent the old one in its place.
    Right now with the 3020 I heard 2 people say that after being upgraded to 3020, via *228, they later found themselves back on 3019.

    Also how did you do the restore? from a nand backup?
  16. teh_dude

    teh_dude Well-Known Member

    well if you've got the file and lgnpst, you can always push 3020 back on. :p

    btw, what the hell does lgnpst stand for anyway? LG is obvious, but NPST? I've observed a common thread (no pun intended) whereas other programs such as QPST also end in PST, but that's it.

    That is a good question, one I do not know.

    cdma workshop is another way to do many of these things, and obviously on more then just lg phones, however the price tag on cdma workshop is not so nice. which is why I am very glad LGNPST is around.

    Not that there aren't ways to get cdma of course :p

    I've wondered about that as well. :D

    That did happen to my wife's phone. The same day I got the 3020, she had gotten it as well. The next day she was back to 3019. Now today, a week later, she has the 3020 again (and thus 3G as well). Her phone was upgraded (and downgraded and subsequently upgraded again) automatically; it was pushed to her phone. After the downgrade, I had tried the *228 but it stayed at 3019.

    Pretty sure lgnpst is pirated, but I have yet to see where I could possibly buy a legitimate copy/license. I think that means we're not supposed to have it lol.
