I'm trying to flash a LG PM325V16 sprint to cricket.when I enter the PRL and the SPC code to finish the job, it says (Roaming list send failed)it happened twice with 2 different sprint phones!what's the problem and how to fix it?One more thing... how to change the SPC code to zeros?
i have qpst and have used it for writing prl's and what not but since there is no software to work with and sync contacts for the lg rumor, i was wondering if i can do this via qpst. i added all of my contacts in the phone book tab on qpst and tried to write it to my phone. it show that it wrote but when i check the phone there is no contacts. but if i read the phone with qpst and check the phone book tab it still shows the contacts i added to qpst.
When I run qpst explorer program says "cannot write to phone locked by other program". I have cdma workshop and I cannot read phone with it anymore. My phone is supposed to be set on com 2 and it fails, but it will read on com 2 in qpst. What did I do/ Thanks for help. I was playing with phone and messed up something.
I bought a sprint 8530 on ebay unlocked it and trying now to flash it to metro pcs using qpst I dl'd the prl from corolada.com open it with qpst and 'write to phone' after that the phone restarts and when it powers back up *228 fails but 611 still connects me to sprint. Anyone can help?
I just recovered a bricked vx8500 (V06) with LG downloader emergency download.I rewrote the esn/meid to the phone using QPST. I manually loaded an eri and and prl with lg downloader. I programmed the service programming with QPST , handset , LG Download , NVEditto restore the nam settings. Phone still displays "service required" and when I do a #4357*4357 it shows PRL-none and lg downloader shows prl 50855 SID - SERVICE NOT AVAILABLE.Channel - SERVICE NOT AVAILABLE. Everything else is correct. How do I finish restoring this phone?
I have 2 phones with telus one samsung sch-a950 and a lg 245. I hacked into the samsung using unicdma and got my spc code and used qpst 291 to upload new ringtones. My question is can this be done with the Lg 245 if I got a usb cable for this phone. If so where can i get the drivers for the cable,and the procedure.
I bought a Verizon LG Lucid 4G and I would like to flash it to Page Plus. I have DFS CDMA Tool Demo version and QPST. How do I get my Lucid into Diagnostic Mode??? I believe I know all the step to flash my phone, but I can't seem to get my phone into Diag Mode. What code do I need to do so?? What are the steps to flashing my phone over to PP using DFS Demo or QPST? I followed the steps this guy took to flash his HTC Thunderbolt 4G over to PP, but it's not working for me, probably because I'm not in Diag Mode. The guy used CDMA Workshop, but I did the same steps using DFS. Anything I change and write to the phone never saves after I restart the phone. URL..I want to flash my phone without having to pay for any software, if at all possible.
I Have an LG VX9600, and have had it flashed to metro already, so i can sent texts, get call all the basics, but I know that you can program it to be able to use internet and picture messaging. I have connected my phone to my laptop and used the QPST Configuration program to open up the settings of the phone. I do have I think all the setting for the Metro web browser to work, but I can't find where they all go. Below I posted what setting I have.
I had my LG Rumor(unflashed) plugged into uniCDMA to get my security code and I clicked "read all" and my phone's info showed up. I saw the phones ESN # and I clicked "write" (assuming it would just rewrite the original ESN) & it said ESN write failed followed by my phone restarting. Once I plugged it back in, my ESN, MEID, and other codes where zeroed out.Is there anyway to restore it, because my ESN is showing up as zeros in my phone's settings and I'm trying to activate it with cricket. Thanks in advance!
Does anyone know how to copy ringtones to the LG Rumor using either QPST or Bitpim? I see the phone in both programs but have no idea where to put the ringtones, which folder and how.
I am looking for help to access a Samsung Epix I907 with QPST. The environment is: QPST builds 323/343 Windows 2000 stock Samsung USB drivers stock Samsung USB cable (APCBS10BBE) from Blackjack II generic aftermarket USB cable no Activesync The result is: Samsung Modem shows up on connection Samsung Diagnostic Serial port shows up ports are selectable in QPST configuration manager, but, of course no phone is recognized What has been tried before connecting: remove sim remove microsd run testmode.exe run dmsessioninit.exe use debug menu to enter test mode ##DEBUG# **DEBUG#
Anyway, I currently have a Moto Razr VE Maxx from VZW and like it for the most part, but its needing replacement. Is there a way to "hack" the LG Choco 3 to enable DUN over cable / bluetooth without the vzw software, like on the Maxx? Can we just use QPST to change the same settings in the phone that the maxx used?
I need help on which programs i need to get Internet and mms working on a lg vx9700 currently on metro pcs service. Ive tried editing thru the phone but im not able to edit nothing . So i used QPST and nothingn
my lg voyager works fine, screens are broken, fun to play with though, with Qpst efs explorer up, i ender the service code, connect properly, and the directory tree comes up, but no files are in anyyy of the directories. any ideas why that might be? I've tried a few things like having the phone on or off but i don't think that matters.
I've got a bit of a problem with my LG Dare. My LG dare will not connect to my computer, it's not in device manager and it's not in QPST. Right now, I can access the filesystem over bluetooth.The cable is not the problem -- I can use it in my droid, BB storm and in my other dare. The only thing my dare will do with the cable is charge. Software: VX970V6 Doesn't recognize in download mode either.
Setting up the bluetooth so that I can use my mobile phone to access the internet on my mac. I have an LG phone but there isn't an LG option in the dropdown bar, does LG perhaps have another name that's in the list. Also what do I put in the username, password and phone number sections? I have tried to do it but it has failed.
i have a lg5400s at my cell phone store.I tried flashing the phone over to cricket using qpst and cdma. Went thru all the steps and added the prl file to the phone.It said file write successful and the phone reset on it own..I call 611 to check the service and its still on verizon tried to reconnect the phone and it keeps saying phone didnt answer. What could be the problem? Not sure if its hard locked or not but if so is there away to fix it?
I have an LG 210 Cellphone rom Telus. I have figured out how to transfer Images, Ringtones, etc using Data Pilot and my USB Cable.However, DataPilot does not seem to have the ability to upload .jar or .jad Game files.With my old T720 I used to use MIDway, but that seems to be a Motorola only tool. All attempts to communicate with my cellphone and MIDway have failed.Does anyone have any idea how I can do this? Or any applications meant to write java games to LG phones?
Another n00b needing some tips/assistance... I spent hours the other night trying to figure out just how to flash my LG Ally to Cricket, to no avail. I've never flashed anything to anything before, so I'm trying to understand the whole process at the same time. There's a lot of vague info on the forums about doing this on the Ally, but nothing clear, yet. I rooted my phone (thanks to amoamare's AllyRR) and tried using 3 programs to gain access to changing PRLs, etc: CDMA Workshop, LGNPST, and QPST. None of them could correctly identify my phone (and yes, I had USB debugging on). It seems to me LG has added a layer of protection to prevent using these tools. My guess is that those of you out there who know how to code (I'm not included) can use ADB Shell or something else to modify PRLs, etc. on a rooted phone.
I have an LG Versa that always fails when atempting to dial a call. It says "Calling" and the number dialed for about 30 seconds then says "Call Failed!!! Try Again". Everything else on the phone works fine.This happened after the phone was partially bricked and then an emergency flash was performed with LGNPST Lab Level 1.2 and the vx9600.dll. The phone has since been completely reflashed on several occassion with versions 3 & 4 software by the carrier techs, some "super techs" & myself "standard tech" but problem persist. I have noticed if you go into Programming Mode (##77647269600 call then 000000) under Field Test & Screen that the value "TxPower" is always "TXOff" even while call is being attemped, before it fails. (see attachment) No one has been able to determine how to get the TxPower On. LG says that someone must have changed a setting, but they refuse to provide the information on how it is accomplished. Lg insist that it must be sent in for service.The phone is out of warranty.
im useing QPST and im learning as i go. I see i can use it to add SPC's to my phone. I have a razr V3a wich is alltel and useless in my area. I have another V3a wich is a local carrier and well here is what i need to know. Is there a way to use QPST or another app and get the SPC .HEX file off it to use on the alltel?
Alright so I have already hacked into my old Samsung U510 and have my old games and ringtones on it. But its broken atm so I got a loaner Instinct (being a Best Buy employee has it's advantages).Anyway I tried calling 611 and asking them for my SPC code, like i did for my u510, but this time the lady said she had no clue what i was talking about and couldn't find it on the screen.On my U510 I used QPST Configuration to show the phone and then QPST EFS Explorer to actually get in the registry of the phone, using my SPC code.I thought I would try the same for the Instinct. Except I don't have the SPC code and they CLAIM they don't have it.How can I uploaded my own ringtones and games to my phone? I've tried using funformobile but it didn't work. Anyone have any ideas?I'm gonna keep trying to get my SPC and try through QPST. I'll update as I go along!I want to do it cause if it works i'll keep the Instinct.
I am using QPST and I couldn't see where the JAR/JAD files were. Turns out they are under /mmc1 directory. You need to change the root directory of QPST from / to /mmc1.I noticed that you cannot over-write the files, you need to delete the file you need to replace first and then copy a new one with the same file name.
i restored my meid and esn files on my VX9900 but it now says "Service Required" and in the LG Dowload it show that i have a PRL on the phone! and i dont on the phone it says "PRL No File" and i have to write different PRL'S on the LG Download it shows it but on the phone it dosent!!!
i just ordered a new lg vx9400,and i would love to learn how to set up free WAP on it.I know it involves changing some paramtables or whatever, but i dont have data cable needed.is there any other way to connect to my computer and edit these values, like bluetooth or something?and also, should I use bitpim or QPST?
I'm having a problem accessing the file system on a V323i from US Cellular. I've tried using QPST and P2k Commander. I can setup the phone in QPST configuration with no problem. When I go to EFS explorer I can see the phone's ESN, phone number, etc., but when I click OK to select the phone I get the error "You have entered an incorrect service programming code. The phone will not respond to read or write command for 10 seconds". I get this same message will all the QPST tools. I verified the SPC was 000000 and could access the service programming menu with no problem. One oddity with this phone is it has a subsidy password lock on the service programming menu options. It is a CDMA phone. I have the subsidy code and can access the options after entering it. I tried entering that in SPC field of EFS explorer with no luck. The Motorola UID extraction tool changes modes from Motorola USB modem to Motorola USB device and loads the interfaces as it should, but P2k Commander just freezes up when I try to access the phone. Motorola mobile phone tools CAN access the phone and I copied some pics from it, but i need access to the root filesystem.
I was messing with this phone using QPST program. I was not trying to change nothing, I was just reading information off the phone messing around. i remember putting the phone into a loader mode and it showed up on the phone "software update" or whatever then i told it to reset the phone in one the programs... looked at the phone and it was off now it wont turn on at all the computer don't recognize it.Its dead to everything.
With the growing market in music/video handsets, USB sideloading performance is becoming an important specification in a phone. Having high speed USB transfer is becoming a neccessity rather than a feature "nice to have" when transfering with hundreds of MB of files. Here is comparison of different USB sideloading speed of LG phones: Based on transfering 1GB filesize from PC to phone: *LG Viewty: 467sec, 2.19MB/s LG Shine: 1340sec, 0.74MB/s LG Trax: 1390sec, 0.737MB/s LG Chocolate: 1780sec, 0.575MB/s LG Venus: 1545sec, 0.663MB/s *LG Viewty wins in the benchmarking because it is the only one that has High Speed USB controller. Despite all the phones are USB v2.0, only one is truly High Speed.
after arguing with sprint for hours and trying to "legally" get PAM added to my account with no avail, i got tired of arguing and hung up and decided to see if i could get around it on a BB while still having a decent plan.well you can. These instructions are at your own risk, and while i was able to do it to both a curve and a pearl, and im assuming since all BB's are about the same it should work on the tour and 8830, it's at your own risk. I am not posting this from my normal username, as it's a little risky for me to do so so please know that i've had plenty of posts on here and been around since '04 Ok so here goes.Step 1: Install QPST 2.7 build 215 (this is very important, no other one will work, find it yourself ) Step 2: Obtain your MSL/SPC from Sprint (if you dont already have it)Step 3: Get your PowerVision Username (if you dont know it, you can do ##xxxxxx and press call from the homescreen x=msl/spc, it's the [URL] in the list)Step 4: Start BBDM and QPST Configuration at the same time, then once you add the port to QPST, selct "Service Programming" from the drop down menu. Step 5: Select your phone in the list, dont worry it will act like it doesnt know the chipset model, select SURF6300 BB from the list and say OK Step 6: go to the MIP tab Step 7: Create a new MIP profile that looks just like this (except in the NAI and Tethered NAI, you'll enter your PV username) -- once you're done you will have two profiles, the first one im assuming is for provisioning and i wouldnt mess with it. Step 8: click "OK" then "write to phone", it will give an error about the model changing on com X, do you want to close the connection?, say NO it will write anyway, then you will get another error about the phone not responding.. that's because it rebooted.Step 9: once the phone reboots, create a manual DUN connection (i assume if you're on here and understand how to use PST you can make a DUN connection ) with the connection as follows: Phone number: #777 Username/password fields are blank..
I purchased a Q9C on ebay. The phone is flashed is Sprint ready but the phone is branded ALLTel hence Sprint won't activate the phone. However, I have several old phones I would like to change the ESN of the Q9c with that of my other phone. First of all, will that work (that is will Sprint activate it) and secondly, how do I do that? Does anyone have directions? I tried QPST but NVM folder is locked
I recently got the LG KP500 Cookie and as it was my first unlocked phone purchase, I was unaware that the mms doesn't work automatically. Now, do the mms settings for other LG phones work on all LG phones? Do they need new settings for each different type of phone? If anybody knows the settings, it would be greatly appreciated if you can post it up on here. almost forgot to say that this is on the Fido network!
Can someone help me out here im trying 2 view my old text messages n my pictures by sending them 2 my new phone that i got as a gift but is not an LG anymore. My old LG pageplus phone got ***** up from the screen so im not able 2 view any new pics or text mess. that are sent 2 me. If someone can direct me on how 2 send this info from my old LG VX6100 phone 2 my new motorolla phone but still w/ the same pageplus activation please let me no.
I just had a couple quick questions regarding music and bitpim and whatnot for the LG AX8600. First off, does anyone know how to play WMA files on this phone? Alltel's website said it supports WMA, but Jump Music claims it doesn't, and my phone refuses to show any WMA files.Also, is it possible to transfer text messages off of this phone and onto a computer? BitPim does not allow this for the AX version, but I didn't know if I could successfully force it to think my AX is the VX. I transfered some texts using QPST, but I cannot read them. When I open them with notepad I can see a few words, and then a bunch of jumbled symbols.
I have an LG vx8300.I have BitPim .0.9.06. I have a USB cable to connect the phone and computer. I also have QPST 2.7.I would like to get songs off my micro sd card and burn them to a CD so I can listen to them not using my phone.I can see the songs with the sync feature from Verizon but I am afraid syncing will erase the songs because they are not on the computer, only on the phone.I can see the music folder on "My Computer" but I am not able to copy it. Is there any way to use software to copy the mp3s to my computer directly? BitPim does not see the songs.I searched all over the net but it seems most people are trying to make ringtones or something and I just want to copy some files which does not seem to work the same way.
Has anyone successfully synchronized their Outlook contacts and calendar using LG PC Suite II with Vista? I used to be able to do this with my Shine phone but since I've upgraded to my Xenon which uses LG PC Suite II I haven't had any luck. I'm using the LG USBModem driver 4.8.1 and neither LG PC Suite II v4.G.3.92.090415 or Windows Media Player 11 will recognize my phone with the corresponding USB setting Data Service or Music Sync.
Differently from most of mobile phones, the LG MX240 is no more supported by LG. It's an old phone and I got some pics on its memory that I need to download on my PC. The problem is that it requires a software for the data transfer and even after a long internet search I can't find it.The LG manufacturer is no longer giving support for this product so I can't download any related software from the LG site. The USB cable is not a problem once I alread got it and it's working fine (I know that because Windows recognizes it with, although it fails to install a driver)If anyone knows an alternative link or torrent or even any other way for helping me out I'd be so glad.
Should I get an LG Env3 or LG Env Touch? I've tried both phones out in the store, but can't decide. It seems like the Touch is a better phone, but large for carrying in a pocket. I've read on forums, that is has a terrible battery life. The LG Env3 has a great batter life, and I like the number dialing pad. Supposedly both phones have bugs in them, that haven't been resolved.
Does anyone know where I can download the standard LG message alert tones? I am looking for #10 in particular.I recently lost my LG phone and I would like to have that message alert tone on my replacement phone, but I can't seem to transfer it from any of the other LG phones in my house.
How does LG phones in general compares with Samsung and HTC?I see nice LG phones with very good design but not sure about its performance or reliability. All I know is LG phones are cheaper than Samsung and HTC.
Does anyone have info on how to unlock the filesystem on the Helio Drift so I can edit the cwCONFIGURATION.ini file? I tried using the default Samsung 16-digit code using CDMA Workshop. It says 'phone unlocked', but Bitpim or QPST wont allow a write of that file. Bitpim can't be used anyway, because the file is in the /mmda subdirectory and only QPST lets you set the default directory when reading the efs. Is there another EFS reading software I can use? Is there a specific 16-digit code for this model? I need to change the wap port, and that file is where it is stored. p.s. Samsung PST is no help, either. The Ocean I have had success with (it has a 16-digit code of it's own), but the Drift has been elusive for a LONG time now.)
there everyone been reading these forums for a while back when the A950 super hacking thread came to be. i know the phone is now discontinued and people have now hacked it, meaning interest has considerably smaller but i was tyring to hack the phone last night for custom ringtones and come upon a problem. Now i am a beginner so bare with me I have QPST build 91 pictbridge cable drivers installed So it reads as a modem and i have my MSL now when i load QPST at first i couldn't get my phone to show but did some more reading and figured out about COMs and to switch/add new ones. i got it to show now this is where my problem comes into play i click on my phone to see the firmware/files but when i put my MSL into the QPST program and try to enter my phone it says that my MSL is incorrect, now i know its correct for two reason, i work for telus and seen it (which i memorized it and wrote it down as well) and today i called in to make sure it wasn't a "secondary or temp MSL" or something like that but they both are the same 6 digit code. Can anyone help me to figure out as to what i am doing wrong? i am at work atm but it says something along the lines of incorrect MSL code can't access the phone.
Until the recent large update (149 mgb) to iTunes I was able to pair my LG phone to my wife's iMac and transfer mp3 files either way using Bluetooth. Now when I pair the phone and go to Browse Device on the iMac it lists all of my phone memory files but will only open the the SDPicture file. When I click on the SDMusic file it says operation failed. Is this just Apple protecting their rice bowl with regard to music sales or is it a glitch in the software?
I bought the phone from e*bay but it come with user locked. How can I read the lock code? It is not detected in my computer and I can not set it to MTP setting on the phone. I tried CDMA workshop, uniCDMA, Bitpim, QPST but non of them see the phone.
I have a SPH M800 with internet and policy.txt (long time ago)so today I wanted to download google maps. So I played with it and 10 mins later my phone froze and now it will not get passed the loading screen. I took out battery for an hour changed battery and still wont work. When I thought it was over I decided to plug it on USBof my PC and I heard the noise but still nothing, Than I opened QPST and it can actually read the phone and stuff, is there a way I can reset or reflash? Or is it a dead phone I am sure since QPST can read I can flash it or do something again any suggestion my email is email@example.com
After a great deal of searching the net for info on this subject I've decided to post here in the hopes of getting some guidance. So far I haven't had any luck accessing the files system of the phone with either Bitpim or QPST. From what I know my COM port and program settings are correct but I'm wondering if there's something else that needs to be done in the phone test mode menu settings to allow access to the LGAPP folder (or any others) via USB or Bluetooth. I've tried different computers, drivers, program versions, etc and nothing seems to work. With QPST I'm able to see the root folders, but when I try to open them nothing happens. If anyone could give some advice on this subject I would greatly appreciate it. So far I don't dislike the phone but find it extremely annoying that you can't delete the lame java demos or install your own games/apps without a data plan.
I've searched and I know this is a common problem.I've seen some solutions, but none have worked for me. So I am basically here to further my knowledge.Like many others, I edited the filedb to unlock the internet settings and when I turned the phone off it came back on looping. Has anyone found a solution to this that works?The phone connects to every program, but I can't do much with it since it turns off. I've put it in emergency download mode, but a lot of good that does since nothing will upload to it.I can't get QXDM to connect to it. I've gotten everything else to connect.Bitpim, QPST, LG Download, LGUpdate.
I have a few Java Apps installed on my LG Rumour that require access to the phone's file system. Is there a file I can modify using either bitpim or qpst that will allow them access? Right now, I get error messages such as "Application not authorized to access the restricted API", or "No Access! Cannot access file system".I've searched high and low for a solution to this, and have come up with nothing.Also, I've come across ways of getting rid of the java permission prompt, but none of them are relevant to the Rumour. Does anyone know of a way of getting rid of this prompt on this phone?
There are quite a few people here that are complaining about the feature LG phones had in the past; the ability to securely lock the phone and require a PIN to unlock it. This feature was built into the "*" key. The key had to be held down for a few seconds then the phone would lock.This feature was removed by LG, not Verizon Wireless. Apparently, many people complained about this feature and were locking their phones and forgeting their PIN. As mentioned in other posts and to put it nicely, these people shouldn't have locked their phones if they have such a poor memory. The default PIN is the last four digits of ones phone number so how hard can that be to remember? We all need to contact LG and Verizon Wireless and voice our opinions. Verizon can be contacted online through their web site or by phone; LG the same way. Let's stick together and get this feature back!
I've just got a LG Voyager and I really like the phone so far. I found a great way to sync my outlook calendar to the phone using bitpim and was curious if anyone has found a way to install a few applications.I'd like to try using my Agile Messenger on this phone however, the instructions to install this application seem slightly vague on the net due to this phone not being a smart phone.Has anyone found a way to install or try Agile Messenger on the LG Voyager (VX10000)?
We've had the LG Chocolate touch for about 3 months now, and the phone is great. A simple combination of music/photo/phone for people who don't need a full featured smartphone.Unfortunately, my wife dropped her LG Chocolate Touch and the screen appears damaged. I've seen repalcement screens for sale on eBay, but no instructions are included. Does anyone have a link to instructions on how to replace the screen for a LG Chocolate Touch?
I have the LG VX8550 Chocolate for Verizon Wireless. I was wondering if there is any way to get the original firmware from LG so I could flash it to my phone. I am tired of all of the restrictions that verizon does. Does anyone know where I could get the LG 8550 firmware to flash my phone? Another option is the telus firmware but no one seems to have it.
Ok for the love of me i cannot find information on flashing lg phones anywhere. i have flashed my motos all day long and know how the process works. what i want to know is if there is a similar process with lg phones. i have lg download but cannot find a tutorial or anybody who is willing to tell me anything about it.the end goal in mind is to reflash my alltel ax260 so that it becomes like factory new.
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad A1 tablet. I recently Changed phone carriees and got an LG Optimus L9. The tablet is running Gingerbread and the phone is running Ice Cream Sandwich. I seem to only be able to sync from tablet to phone. Are there computability issues between the to OSs? I had no issues syncing when both tablet and phone were running Gingerbread, my previous phone was an LG Optimus Elite.
I have a data cable and the QPST 2.7 build 231 and the Samsung A720. I want to put stuff on it, but when i use the explorer, put the MSL code, it loads, i put stuff in it, i dont see the game or whatever inside the phone when i go to Menu>Games and when i reset the phone and check the EFS explorer, the files are gone.
Does anyone know how to increase the size limit's for picture/video messages on an enV Silver? I got both BitPim and QPST to edit my phone. I'm also wondering is there a limit to how many ringtones my phone can handle? or its unlimited?
I would very much like to be able to get pictures off of my Tint but haven't had any luck. I've installed Samsung PC Studio and Bitpim but still can't see the phone over USB. Qualcomm QPST does see the phone but I can't seem to find anything that shows the pictures. I was also able to use it as a Modem to get on the internet (I can only get the MetroPCS page telling me to get MetroWeb but at least it worked).
i'm using lg l3 e400 ! actually my went in boot loop ,so it ws unable to start then i flashed kdz V10L(as i'm from india ). then my phone sarted normally!but the main problem is that now i tired to root my phone so many times but always and error comes link failed permission denied !!so i think that after flashing orginal kdz flash (stock rom )kdz V10L we are unable to root !!
I've been trying to flash a kyocera Echo m9300 2.3.4 to Cricket. For some reason everytime I install the usb driver on my pc & then connect the phone, my computer blue screens. What do I do to fix the problem so i can get qpst & cdma workshop to find the phone so i can get this headache over with?
