Default DIY: How To Change Your PRL

Decided to write up instructions on how to change your PRL in a step by step procedure as this way is the only way I have learned everything I have done. This is actually very simple to do.

Just wanted to return the favors of others.

Thanks go to Slayer72 for one set of instructions, h2o for a very nice find
and CasDroid for an equally nice find.

DISCLAIMER: The codes involved in this procedure require you to enter into the phone menu. Changing, modifying, or playing around inside these menus CAN AND WILL result in undesired affects to include but not limited to a bricked phone. DO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

THIS IS FOR ADVANCED USERS ONLY!!!!!!!


Prerequisites - CDMA - MSL code - PRL file/files

First thing you need is CDMA Tools - Link -> CDMA

Install on your computer.

Again, the below codes are AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!

Sprint users - If you are a custom ROM Method #1 will not work for you. The apk responsible for this will not reboot as it should nor will CDMA find your device properly.

To get your MSL code

Prerequisites - Rooted device and Terminal Emulator






For Sprint PRL's -> SPRINT PRL'S
For Boost PRL's -> reserved - Do not have any at the moment (help any one)


Method #1 (Thanks to Slayer72)

1. Bring up your stock dialer.




3. Type in your MSL Code.
4. Then tap DM for DM Mode - It will reboot and come back up under DM Mode.
5. Now you can go back to DFS CDMA Tool.
6. Click Port.
7. Double click the Diagnostic Serial Port - This will enable you to use for the port it'll flash the PRL on.
8. Click connect after the port selection box.
9. Now click in the SPC box and put in your MSL Code and click the blue button to the left of the box, in the log window you should see something to the effect of DEVICE UNLOCKED.
10. Now click on Programming Tab.
11. Then click the NAM Tab.
12. Then under PRL to the right click the READ button.
13. Once it shows your current PRL then click SAVE button to backup your current PRL.
14. After that's done click LOAD to load in the PRL you wanna try.
15. After it shows in the box click write and look at the log, at the end of it it'll say complete.
16. Now bring up your stock dialer again and type ##7678# enter your MSL Code, then click UMS, then it'll reboot, now you can go to about phone then status and see if your new PRL is displayed.


Method #2 (Use this if stock)

1. Bring up your stock dialer.




3. Tap USB.
4. Follow steps 5-15 in method #1.
5. Goto "Settings" - "About Phone" - "Status" to see your new PRL.

Method #3.1 (If Sprint Follow this)

1. Reboot into CWM.
2. Plug phone into computer.
3. Follow steps 5-15.

Method #3.2 (If Boost Follow this) Thanks h20

1. Follow steps 1-4
After device reboots [now in dm mode]

2. Reboot into CWM.
3. Plug phone into computer.
4. Follow steps 6-15.
5. Reboot and enjoy your new PRL.

Method #4 (Use if Stock or Rooted - Boost or Sprint) (Thanks to CasDroid)

Use this method if getting into your phones actual programming is too risky for you. This method does not change your PRL to whatever you want but it does give you is the best PRL for your location.

1. Make sure you have your msl number (refer to steps above)
2. Make sure wifi is turned off and data is on
3. Turn phone off
4. Pull battery
5. Wait 2-3 minutes (to clear cache)
6. Insert battery and reboot (allow sd card to finish scan at reboot)





8. Enter msl and press "ok" (you will see a dialogue box that says "SCRTN is change to factory default value for DSA")
9. Select "yes" (phone will reboot...again allow sd card scan to complete on reboot)
10. A screen will pop up that says "we will now activate your device. Contacting network please wait" (this is the hands free activation screen)
11. When that is complete, the screen will say "congratulations device activated"
12. Select "ok" (no quotes)
13. The next screen will say "checking for PRL update please wait." When this is complete, it will say "PRL has been updated press ok to continue"
14. Press "ok" (no quotes)
15. The screen will now say "checking for firmware update please wait"
16. When it is completed, press "ok" (no quotes)
17. The screen will say "device will reboot" - press "ok" (no quotes)

Once rebooted you can go to settings, status, and you will see your new prl. If for any reason you don't see the message from step 10 after entering msl and rebooting, simply reboot phone (don't pull battery), and you should be able to continue from step 10.

Method #3 (Thanks to h20)

1. Reboot into CWM
2. Plug phone into computer
3. Follow steps 5-15.


should be
steps 1-4
after device reboots [now in dm mode]
boot into clockwork. then connect cable
follow steps 6-15
reboot and enjoy your new PRL

windows will show diagnostic port while booted in clock work even if not in dm mode but DFS wont be able to unlock the device unless you have booted in dm mode first then boot into CWM
this is a work around for those that are on roms that for whatever reason wont make the diagnostic port available even after rebooting in dm mode
basically after rebooting in dm mode you only see your device as a modem make sure you have the correct drivers installed if that's OK and you cant connect to or see the diagnostic port.
then try this method. niteNarmor maybe you can write this better. i am by no means an expert on this subject. this is just what worked for me.

I understand. Not a problem but doing the steps I did after you told me about clockworkmod works. On Sprint ROM's the DM does not reboot. So by going straight into CWM, DFS does see and read what it is suppose to.

This method was tested by myself and worked.

ohhhh ok.... on my boost starscom rom it worked as stated in prior post just as long as folks can see what there options are.. even though it might be some what confusing.

So by going straight into CWM, DFS does see and read what it is suppose to.
when i tried it without dm mode on "boost starSCrom" DFS did see it. and DID connect but did not unlock the device, after sending spc just hung on searching device..

Do me a favor and test method #3 as stated in the OP. Trust and believe it works. If you have your MSL and enter it into DFS then it will still unlock, read and write.

I tried one time and took the hiddenmenu.apk from starSCrom because the hidden menu would not let me reprogram phone in MegaTron. So I changed apks to see if that was it. It was not. I could not reprogram even with that apk.

For the time being, I have edited the OP to reflect the changes you described. The changes will stay until another Boost user can confirm or deny.

you asked for boost prls, so thought I'd let you know, I'm zip code 29501 (Florence, SC) and mine synced to 61009.

Which brings me to a thought/question; has anyone considered putting out a post for folks to follow the procedure I posted http://androidforums.com/transform-ultra-all-things-root/491861-megatron-6-0-4-updated-10-02-12-a-55.html#post5100803 across the country and then post the boost prl that they get by zip code. People would be able to then find their zip and enter the best prl...would that work? Wouldn't take too long to get a few if folks participated, and no risk as it doesn't do anything brick-able to the phone. Just a thought

I don't think anyone has put out a post on your method, but since you did give me your blessing I will add it to the OP above as method #4 and give you credit.
As far as "best" prl for area, for people like me who travel all the time, there may not be one for the area. Example, I live in North Carolina and on Sprint. I am in Wyoming for work. No Sprint towers. They belong to AT&T or Verizon. So I was roaming all the time. One day of roaming and no signal was enough for me.

THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IS NOT RECOMMENDED. DO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I flashed a Verizon PRL, now I am not roaming plus have better signal. So best signal for your HOME area yes. Traveling, as long as you have your carriers towers, yes.

EDIT: Your method has been added to the OP. Thanks for the information.

Be careful with Method #4, you will need to copy your MDN and MSID numbers as when you pull the battery and wait 2-3 minutes then boot back into your system and do the ##72786# to refresh to the nearest carrier tower when the phone comes back up your MDN and MSID numbers aren't there which means you have to reprogram them in...

Solution:

1. Bring up stock Dialer
2. type ##[MSL CODE]#
3. It will show the Phone Number, if it's not there type it in...
4. Tap enter button bottom left corner...
5. Now you'll see MSID number, if it's not there type it in...
6. Tap OK button bottom right corner and phone will reboot...

Now everything should work again, I got these instructions from Boost CSR

3. It will show the Phone Number, if it's not there type it in...
4. Tap enter button bottom left corner...
5. Now you'll see MSID number, if it's not there type it in...
6. Tap OK button bottom right corner and phone will reboot...

Now everything should work again, I got these instructions from Boost CSR

Thanks Slayer. Now that we've got this extra layer of safety, I will note, I have tried method #4 repeatedly now, and a few times, even with following the directions to the letter, I got the missing MDN and MSID deal.

However, each time that happen, I just ran the method again from the beginning and it went the way it should the second time. So maybe another suggestion to add to method #4 instructions is..."should you reboot and find missing MDN/MSID, start process over as described and it should be good to go. Should several attempts not work, follow this procedure (enter your recent solution)."

Method #4 has been hidden until the exact instructions can be completed. No disrespect to anyone as everyone works hard at what they do to make this as best as it can be. The instructions just need to be exact so noobs can follow.

EDIT: Steps have been amended. A big thanks to CasDroid and Slayer72.

I would think that it would, PRLs aren't area specific, they only deal with how the phone's internal programming interacts with the closest tower it's hitting...

I would like to thank niteNarmor for this thread....especially method 3.2 on OP. It was the missing piece of the puzzle I needed to do "forbidden" things to my Boost Ultra. Hint: Amazing 3G speeds on Virgin Mobile.

Just an FYI I don't have a list of PRLs for Boost, the ones I have are Sprint PRLs that can be used in place of our Boost PRL...

Here's a link to my thread for them... http://androidforums.com/boost-transform-ultra-lounge/637856-prl-thread.html

Which brings me to a thought/question; has anyone considered putting out a post for folks to follow the procedure I posted http://androidforums.com/transform-ultra-all-things-root/491861-megatron-6-0-4-updated-10-02-12-a-55.html#post5100803 across the country and then post the boost prl that they get by zip code. People would be able to then find their zip and enter the best prl...would that work? Wouldn't take too long to get a few if folks participated, and no risk as it doesn't do anything brick-able to the phone. Just a thought
Once again PRLs aren't area specific, if you notice that no matter where we are we all have the same Boost PRL...

Update.... To gain your MSL, i just did this and it worked perfectly. Thanks to some random poster on a youtube video. This works on my unrooted S2 Epic Touch from Sprint.


you need to download alogcat from the app store and clear the log, dial ##3282# hit edit enter bogus code, hold home button go to alogcat type 'msl' in search and there is your code

I cant seem to find the Diagnostic Serial Port in my Tool, and it says "Ports" not just "Port" as mentioned int the instructions... can anybody help?


*Edit:

I guess the problem is that my phone's usb is broken so even if it recognizes the USB cable it still cant connect to my laptop even with just the regular mass storage... crap im stuck with my 61009 PRL... i was gonna change it....

Sorry I just seen your post. Have you simply tried using the update prl in your about phone settings? The 61009 prl has recently changed to 22090. Don't know why they changed it but they did.

I wonder if this is area specific. I just tried updating mine and it's still 61009. I'm just outside of Chicago.

I don't know really. I live in north Carolina when it changed. I am working right now in Missouri and even used that option and it did not change. Still have the 22090 prl.

Lol. Mine has changed twice in as many weeks. Don't know what's going on. At first I thought maybe a tower went down but now who knows...
