    how do you add the file to your phone? do you have to root it first before adding the files? I have the QPST software on my computer and I'm trying to update my PRL, please help! thanks!

    Okay, I am still lost on adding the files or extracting them to the phone. Do you have to have the phone rooted for it to work? I was able to update my PRL from a 3 something # to 61007, seems like I'm getting better signal when I was able to update it but can someone please walk me through the steps if the 61007 # isn't the updated PRL? This is really confusing for me, sorry!

    So this sounds pretty sweet. Can't hurt right? All I have to so to revert to the original boost prl is to go under settings and select update prl correct? Any chance we can get a link to the newest prl?

    Than in advance :)

    Read both posts above. Links in them will direct you to anything you are looking for. You can simply Google search a PRL number also and find a download link for it as well.

    BTW love the theme, rocking it on my Warp right now.

    Are you sure you completed the steps properly? I had previously went back to the original PRL and just went through the process again and installed 600683. Have waited almost an hour and I still have the new PRL. I can't seen to recreate what happened to yours. Try again and see if you can catch what happens to make it revert back to the old PRL.

    Just my two cents here but I've updated and changed my PRL about four times now with Woodstocks directions...the problem may be that once you change it to whatever PRL it should stay but once you go in and click update Prl from the status menu it will clear it ota and take it back to the original.. .if you change it don't hit the update prl

    Not hitting update prl, but it's still not sticking. Only thing I can figure I'm doing different is that I'm using the demo version of cdma workshop cause I'm cheap& couldn't find the cracked version& the demo is a newer version than the one in the tut.

    The demo comes with a demo prl. So rename that prl to something else. And rename the prl you want to use as the name of the the one that comes with the demo. Make sense?

    I have been using prl 60683 (same my friend uses for sprint) and it has improved my reception in a couple places including battery life. Before at my friend's place my phone was always switching between towers draining my battery in a matter of hours. This prl update fixed that and I get nearly full signal and he barley gets a signal on T-mobile and relies on wifi.

    Randomw thoughts...

    I have set my PRL to 60750...just wandering if anyone has tried that one out, I have had it on for the pass week and it seems pretty good, thinking about trying the 60683 since that seems to be popular but I wonder how you can tell which PRL is the latest...to me anything 607?? would be a later version than 606?? but what do I know :)

    I found this "60685.prl" the other day and wondered if this is a newer/ better .prl than the 60683.prl I am running now. Anyone tried it yet?
