Sorry guys, I was experimenting with an EVO 3D and lost my data also. Smh...

Well now at least I have the information to finish the guide.

Are you getting any type of data connection at all? The data signal icon isn't reliable until you get a real connection. Install Sensorly from Market and look at the Details tab.

Default Is it still working?

So...is this still working after a month or more? Seems like this is ESN flashing like is done on StraightTalk and then after about 6 weeks they cut you off. Any cutoff.

Never heard of that. Everything is still fine. I've been with Boost for years. Switched to Cricket for about 2.2 seconds...encountered the data throttling...right back to Boost.

Sprint is seeking out those flashed illegal phones. As they can tell by other info that is.sent to them.from your phone. Also don't use a flip phone as a donor phone when you have an android.... As your data.maybe like well over a gig or more. They boost like what up and se you are flashed illegally...

Why on boost, no lte and Verizon is not compatible with sprint pre bands....

I am planning on flashing my Thunderbolt to Boost in a week or 2 but was wondering what donor phones are recommended to use for this? I actually wanted to get a Samsung Galaxy S3 with a bad ESN (since is cheaper to get) and flash it to Boost but I haven't found a good guide for this except for THIS which is a huge mess.

I heard that you cant use a Cricket guide to flash a thunderbolt to Boost, it is not the same guides.
I give you props for getting flashed to Boost how ever i would love to see your exact guide on how you did it and not attaching like 3 threads to the some what guide.
I have a guide which i found here in the forum on how to flash the EVO 4G and it was a step by step exactly how to do it, follow that and no problems, was so easy to follow.
I would like to give the Thunderbolt to my son thats why.

DONATE TO ME
Default ?? about flashing to boost

excellent job of getting everything working. I have put an E4GT on MetroPCS but never got MMS working, now I am on to my next one another E4GT to boost. I wanted to ask about your reference to changing your MIP profiles. I believe that I need to modify something there also. I currently have everything working but 95% of the time I only have 1xRTT, but I know that Boost has 3G in my area. Any ideas??? Again great job

Default thank you for this guide

I was wondering if this guide could work for the incredible LTE?
