    check under ports in device manager and see if you can see any, if not, just make a backup of your rom and flash stock or 2.2 update and try code again and it will work.

    if there is no port in device manager than no, you will have to follow the guide to installing prl updates manually, sucks i know, i had to go back to 2.2 to install mines than restored my cm7 with no issues, and have 3g.

    On CRICKET & tested all settings,OPTION 1 seems to be doing the best so far,even though I'm being throttled right now 'til my next billing cycle(1GB/mo. @3G on CRICKET).
    Hope to see even better results when my data isn't being throttled.

    Or you can try doing it while in recovery on CM7.. depending on what build you are using. It worked for me.

    this whole thing confuses me, the settings under the secret code was cool to see, reminded me of the boost/sprint #*menu right option
    i found cdma workshop but im afraid to download it off yahoo thinking it could be some virus...
    if i just keep *228 my phone will it just pick it up itself or do i have to do you guys option to force the prl on the phone?
    i also understand hiding the info from people so they dont just come to the site to take it and leave rather than having active users. but this whole process confuses the heck outta me

    Ive been trying,unsuccessfully, to get QPST to see my phone, Win7 has the correct ports listed in device manger, but QPST still refuses to see it. Even though Its worked in the past.

    In my latest try I flashed back to stock, tried this hidden menu thing but still no go. In this menu I have projectmenu- background settings. But in Background settings I have 6 items and not one of them is " USB port".

    In this menu there is:
    1) Qualcomm background open setting
    2) Log Setting
    3) OTP NV filter switch
    4) System sleep show switch
    5) Modem function switch
    6) Dump log

    And that's it. Any ideas? What am I missing? Remember this is with stock Metro rom.

    Thanks all!

    LOL Yeah its been here in the area for about a week (I'm in St. Pete). I've checked a few of my friends' phones who are on stock and they all have 3g and the 3023 prl now. Now just waiting for better speeds...

    After numerous speed tests i'm pretty sure that the 3g speed in my area is capped at 200kbps. Is there anyway to get past a speed cap? A script or a hack or something?
