    Ok so I am trying to flash it over to boost and I have managed to stumble my way through most of it but I have not found AUTOROOT with as mentioned in the guides but am thinking i don't need as I am already rooted and on radio I do however have the issues that follow:

    1)I scanned for esn's and found 12 (i think I am good there) I do not however understand how to set them to 0's or what program to use

    2) I have no clue how to locate the MEID locations and once I have them what to do with them (what program to use and how to change them)

    Simple questions to some of you I am sure, but I have been going around in circles for over a week now trying to figure this out from stuff that is already posted and I think I am more confused now than when I started.

    Please help!!!!......Thanks:thinking:

    You found the right guide. Follow it through. For me meid locations read the guide again and find the section about "open sesame door".

    Read the guide once all the way through and then start doing your thing. Make that twice all the way through.

    If you follow the open sesame door you'll have the meid/esn zeroed out in 10 min flat. Good luck.

    I have seen you mention the open sesame door a few times but the only reference I have found for it has been for the evo 3d, but not for the evo 4g

    I took a chance and figured with as many times as I saw you mention it they were and I now have a boost evo 4g. Thanks a million...
    One other thing I was thinking about going to a custom rom, is there anything I need to worry about because it is on boost? Like any settings that will be messed with or anything?

    The only setting that will be affected is mms and xda forum has a fix for many roms or use go sms pro from the market
