    I am trying to get my MSL for my E4GT on FG31 rooted. I have tried getprop ril.MSL both SU and non SU commands, alogcat method, a MEID Converter, DFS and CDMA tools, and even guessed a couple times! None of these methods have worked. Any guesses?

    Are you using the Samsung keyboard? Did you use Terminal Emulator or ConnectBot?

    I am using the Samsung keyboard not swipe. I used terminal emulator. getprop ril.MSL. Should i try connectbot?

    So i ran just getprop and there is no ril.MSL in the list. there are other ril.XXXX entries but not a ril.MSL? Odd right?

    Ok so i was having the same problem your having with my boost mobile galaxy s2 i couldn't get my msl with the getprop method but i ran across some helpful information that actually worked for me & should definitely work for you>>>>>

    Download alogcat app from Market and open it. Press menu>filter and type msl in the filter.Go to your dialer and enter ##3282# then when the menu comes up choose Edit.*When it asks for your msl, enter 6 random numbers and you will get a message that the code was incorrect.Long press home and choose alogcat app. In the data, it shows what your msl is.*

    alogcat never reads any logs. It always come up with "reading logs" but always remains blank.

    And if they won't, just pretend you can't access the Internet. Tell them you are doing all the steps in their troubleshooting process, but don't actually do anything. Eventually, they will make their way to where you have to type it in. Write it down. :)

    It's 2014 is there a new way to get the MSL without root on the samsung galaxy s2 (sprint) with jelly bean 2.1.2

    Yeah. Call your carrier and ask or pretend you have no access to the internet. Depending on where you bought it, it might even be on your receipt.
