    This is all the useful info i have as of right now for anyone with an HTC Evo flashed to metro pcs.I am willing to add or edit any info i have provided to make things EASIER to find for this specific phone one METRO PCS.Thanks for your suggestions in advance and i hope this info with help!

    To program data to Metro pcs (must be using a SENSE rom) clickhere

    For ROMS click here (rom's are out-of-box metro-ready:CM7 & Sense 2.0)

    For all the zip's your gonna need,download from these 2 links metrOFF & MetroPCS MMS & Web Script

    The .zip titled"MetroPCS Evo AOSP MMS & Web Script v4" you can use to fix MMS on ANY AOSP and most MIUI ROM's.Just flash it AFTER you flash the ROM of your choice and it should fix your MMS.(MAY NEED TO REBOOT TWICE)There is ALSO a similar WEB/MMS fix for SENSE ROM's as well in the same link above.

    Programing Data/MMS guide WITH PICTURES here

    Here is the link to some fully compatible Sense ROM's that works well with the METRO-FLASHED EVO.

    Azrael's Sense ROM
    + 3.70 OTA sense 2.2 script

    Smooth N Sexy Sense (SNS) + 3.70 OTA sense 2.2 script

    Synergy RC1 or RC2 + MetrOFF GB.zip Havent tested any other release of synergy to confirm it works.

    MY Out-Of-Box MMS -READY CM7.1 ROM (mms working on first flash) :)
    MetrogenMod 7.1


    I will add more to this thread as i find more useful things to share!




    STEP 1:Find the latest and greatest PRL as of now is 3025.

    STEP 2: Download CDMA Workshop if you dont already have it.before opening the program,disable your anti-virus (AV causes CDMA not to work)

    STEP 3: once opened,go to the tab "OTHER",on the right side you will see PRL and 2 buttons READ and WRITE.click write and a dialog box will pop up to select your PRL,navigate to where you have it downloaded to.

    STEP 4:select your PRL and then click open,once it says successfully written,reboot phone and NOW YOU HAVE THE LATEST PRL FOR BLAZING SPEED UPGRADES!!

    Will flashing only a new kernel erase anything? or delete my mms and data settings?

    Nope. Just wipe dalvik and cache,flash kernel then reboot.

    if you guys can please answer some questions about flashing my evo over to metro pcs that would be awesome...

    when there is a newer software update available (2.4 or higher or whatever) like the android 2.3 will i still be able to download it?

    what will be different as far as what i will lose from sprint.. metro evo vs sprint evo?

    if i ever had to repair like a screen or somethin on the evo, who fixes that or how the insurance goes that i had on sprint?

    thanks guys

    so basically this is the whole rundown..once you flash your evo over to sprint,your never gonna be tied to sprint ever again,until you go back to them (if you choose to,of coarse).that means NO INSURANCE..

    first you have to find someone who can add your ESN to metro's database (this is so your phone can be activated on metro's network) with houdini.this is a program that fully programs your phone to metropcs..and regular metro pcs stored usually dont do it either.so search craigslist or other cell phone shops in your area.

    once you have your phone programed with talk and text,you can either pay extra to have them do MMS and DATA or you can program DATA/MMS yourself using THIS VERY EASY GUIDE,which i personally used many times on mine and other peoples metro flashed evos.

    as far as updates go,metro doesnt push updates out,so your only option is flashing a new rom on your phone (not all ROMS will work for your phone either,BUT MOST WILL).its easy to flash ROMs also,theres tons out there.whenever theres an update,dev's will take that update and cook it into a ROM for us.then we just flash the ROM and theres the update :)

    replaceing a broken screen is actually pretty easy,you can DIY,or pay someone like 100 to fix it (thats what i did once already).and also im on the 45 dollar plan with ALL SERVICES WORKING.GPS,WEB,MMS,TALK and TEXT.
    only shitty part is,we get 2G speed on metro.no 3G :( abut you only pay 45 a month :)
    hope this helps!!

    Yes really, thank you. I gave my Samsung Moment to my friend for MetroPCS and was disappointed that they couldn't get it to work properly there. This will really come in handy if I give my Evo away too.

    If you go back a couple of days worth of threads, there was one where a user was having issues flashing a new rom and was using a different carrier. He said that between the changing roms, there are a couple of files to flash as well (one for data and one for texts or something like that). I'm pretty sure he posted a link to XDA where it talked about the switching process.

    also remember,this programming guide is ONLY for phones that have talk and text with metro already..this will not convert your phone to metro from another user..only houdini can add an esn and activate talk and text..this guide is simply for programming data and mms..lol :)
  25. Simply AWESOME! Going to get Evos for the wife and I, I knew someone would post how to do this...
