    What to change the Sprint banner to something else?


    Well here is how.

    This is a rough guide, maybe I'll get ambitious and spruce it up when I have some more time...

    Install HTC Sync if you haven't already..
    Get it here.
    Application Upgrade - HTC Sync 2.0.33

    Gonna need the HTC Diag drivers, least I did... these work fine:
    RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting


    Enter DIAG mode, dial ##diag#, let windows install the drivers...most likely it won't find the HTC DIAG drivers, but they are in the link above... get it installed.

    Now in CDMA workshop, you really don't want to be effin' with stuff you aren't sure what it is... but we are here to change the banner right? riight so don't be changing anything else and you'll be a-ok.

    Select your port, hit connect, hit read... goto the NAM tab...hit Read ...change the Banner from "Sprint" to whatever..hit "Write".... then you can reboot the phone and its done.

    To find your port...

    Select your port, hit connect then hit read. ( picture shows "Disconnect" only because I already pushed connect... )

    Goto the NAM tab, hit read, change the banner, hit write. Reboot your phone

    Enjoy!

    Looks kind of scary but not as scary as a full root method. Good work, thanks!

    Well I tried this out, but the CDMAWorkshop software will NOT write my new banner... its gives me some kind of message (not exact wording) "unable to write in CDMAWorkshop Demo Mode)

    IT seems I have a demo version of the program ? ... :rolleyes:

    That's cause you downloaded from their site right? That's a demo. You need to google it to find the right stuff...

    Mine worked just fine. Thank you!

    keep in mind this site does not allow the use of warez or posting links to such sites. kindly ask this off site.

    I got it to work. Took me forever to figure out that my dumb ass had an old version of workshop, but I got it.

    Anyone found a set of drivers for Win7 x64? I tired the set from XDA and they don't work.
