    You will have allot of people lost if you don't explain what this is and is for.

    All members that are rooted need to watch the video. Everything is explained in the video.
    I bricked my first V so bad I had to flash an S firmware to straighten it out. I had to use a .bin which zero's out the MEID, ESN, AAA.
    This could happen to anybody.
    assadulah's video explains how to see your AAA code, which then needs to be wrote down and saved in case of a bad brick like mine.

    I will never be able to have data on the now unbricked V, unless I beg Virgin Mobile to reprogram my phone, because I never wrote down my AAA code. When they got zero'd out I couldn't write them back to the phone, because I didn't know them.

    Again, all members that root should now do two very important things.
    1. Install a custom recovery and make a backup.
    2. Watch this video and write down your AAA code.

    That's the thing Andy. When I followed the other guide, no one said anything in it about AAA codes, keys, whatever they are. Tons of us followed that guide and now have a phone we cannot use unless VM reprograms it.

    I know, that's why I don't want any other members to be in the same boat as us.
    We need to get this in the All Things Root Guide sticky, and retrain our minds to make sure we directed members to it when rooting and installing a custom recovery.
    Very, very, important stuff for sure.

    AndyOpie150, you can still use the phone for wifi and calling and text, just no data.

    Cool! Glad to hear it. I thought it was just down to being an MP3 playing WiFi device. I will keep that in mind when both good ones have finally bitten the dust sometime in 2014-15. Maybe a way to figure out the AAA code on zero'd out devices will be discovered by then.
  8. Exactly. Wouldn't have heard/read anything about it if I hadn't asked an unrelated question wherein you referred me to this video.

    This really should be stickied as well, not just ATR thread, but stickied too.
    Another important number to write down is your MIN.
  10. What is your MIN? What is it for and where do I find it?

    It is a Mobile Identification Number, and without it, you can't make calls/receive calls, and cant send/receive text. You can find it in Settings>About Phone>Phone Status
  12. Thanks. I found it. Appreciate the heads up. Any other numbers I need to know before I try to do this? Still need a version of that program to get the MSL so that's holding everything up.
  13. Actually I should ask the follow up obvious question. Once I have the MIN what do I do with it, where do I put it?
  14. AndyOpie150

    AndyOpie150 <strong> <a href="http://androidforums.com/optimus

    Write it down along with the AAA code and put them someplace you will remember so you can find them in the future, in case you need them should the unthinkable happen.
  15. That part goes without saying. I'm asking what do I do with these numbers once i have them? Do I need to input them at some point in the process during or after I've installed the new ROM. Also, is the link you directed me to, using that software package, the only way you know of to get the MSL?
  16. AndyOpie150

    AndyOpie150 <strong> <a href="http://androidforums.com/optimus

    The Utility that assadulah mentions in his video is the quickest and easiest way to get your MSL.
    You won't ever need the AAA, AH,MEID and MIN, unless you brick your phone (this can happen to anybody that is rooted and likes to change ROM's and recovery's, etc).

    Hey guys, I'll get this stickied for you as soon as I get to my PC.

    PS... I just happen to come across this by accident... if anyone ever feels like anything needs to be stickied in the future, you can always PM any of us guides or mods... or hit the report button and request a sticky...and lastly there is a "private chat with staff section" http://androidforums.com/private-chat-staff/ :)

    Install the drivers from lg and reboot your phone. Then install everything in the description. Then just follow the video. You shouldn't need a friend to help you. I didn't touch a computer till 2009.

    No you misunderstand what I'm saying you do need a computer. I'm saying you don't need your friends help you can do this yourself and should. It's basically laid out so you can just follow the video.
