    I accidentally restored a Sprint Rom copy into a Victory Virgin Mobile SPH-L300 Phone... ( i get the sprint splash screen when the phone turns on, its a VB phone)

    Everything works but MMS =( cant receive pictures, but I do can send pictures... cant find a solution for this.

    Now I cant find a working ling anywhere to a clean Samsung Victory Virgin Mobile Rom or Firmware I could use...

    Even so, would I use ODIN to restore to original VB settings??

    How do I get the Catalyst after the restore? Just install TWRP and do a flash update? :thinking::thinking::thinking: i dont get it :(

    im sorry for my stupidity

    There is no virgin mobile stock Odin flash able tar. Did you use a sprint tar through Odin or just flash in twrp? What is your baseband in about phone settings? If you used Odin to flash sprint tar, there may not be a fix.

    not sure, I guess I just used a sprint tar thru Odin like u said..
    but the baseband is showing L300VPBND4 =S

    pretty sure its wrong and it should've been the virgin mobile one -_-

    All i need is to get the MMS to work and I cant -_-

    NDC is virgin mobile, but I don't know NDC=s. That must be sprint. You have the sprint modem, and probably boot loader too. There is no fix for that, that I know of. No one ever made an Odin tar of the virgin modem and boot loader. Does data work? Even if I had the virgin modem, you need the bootloader too.

    Data, Calls, SMS - everything works, but it will not receive pictures, it always fails to dowload them

    Odin only installs tar files. No one made a stock virgin mobile tar for Odin.

    so this is what worked for me so far:

    - Download the Conquest Rom from [ROM] Conquest [11.3/Cataclysm][Final]

    - Reset the phone in to recovery boot mode (volume UP + power)

    - Then flashed the Conquest rom (after wiping some stuff)

    - MMS, Text message, calls and data seems to be working now.

    I need a portable hotspot for my SPH-L300 VM phone on Ting. Rooted and service works fine but not hotspot: message: "Hotspot not supported". Tried 3 apps from playstore: Portable WiFi HOtspot(Core Technology), Mobile Hotspot (Adroidstt, Stephanie Tremblay) and pdanet +. Android 4.1.2; Vae Victorious ROM 3.0.31 VaeVictus-MG5-R3-gc26475b-dirty....any suggestions?

    I got ya. Saved this one in my drop box https://www.dropbox.com/s/lt0jkci0mm2uy31/wifi_tether_v3_3-pre2-1.apk?dl=0
    But if you're on victorious it should have this app already. The proper settings for this app are in the victorious thread. In the op.

    Thanks. This one actually does seem to be running; launched with no error and Ting shows that I used @ 400 MB data while was trying to connect to it with my device... but network does not show up in my device (IPad) WIFI settings??

    Go into the settings in the app and create said (network name) also for choose a device. You need to be rooted for it to work. You also need to set a password on it. Then just tap the grey WiFi symbol, it should turn yellow.
    Go to this thread and scroll down to "how to configure tethering". Its for this app and this phone.
