Default cricket mms

Hi guys and gals. after many attempts, i have working cricket mms on my evo 3d


So... you root and research a good custom rom for you. You flash it, all goes well, it looks cool, feels nice you are on top of the world... (like I was) then you find your mms does not work...

here you go

1. make sure you have es file explorer downloaded
2. open your es file explorer
3. go to settings and select Root settings
4. check all the boxes and grant for superuser
now you are looking at the files on your sd card
5. click the "slash" icon on the top left

now you are looking at the whole phone
6. scroll down and select "system"
7. scroll down and select " build.prop"
it will ask you which program to use. I used the es note editor
NOTE you will be changing the build properties of you rom from sprint values to Cricket values
BE CAREFUL NOT TO CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE!!!
9. scroll down slowly you will see ro.build.fingerprint=Sprint
delete Sprint and change it to cricket
10. scroll down about 1/2 of the way down and you will see additional build properties
you will be looking for 4 lines


gsm.sim.operator.alpha=(change to Cricket)
gsm.sim.operator.numeric=(change to 310016)
gsm.operator.alpha=(change to Cricket)
gsm.operator.numeric(change to 310016)

and about 3/4 fof the way down

ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=(change to Cricket)
ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=(change to 310016)

back out and SAVE

REBOOT TWICE!!!!!!!!

11. now go into you es file explorer again this time to system
12. select etc
13. scroll down to a file called apns-conf.xml
delete it!
download this one and edit it with your phone number with notepad+ on your computer
edit the second one, not the value 45
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mqixefjs829t7jg/apns-conf.xml

put the file on your sd card and copy it to your system/etc folder


REBOOT TWICE!!!

16. using the voice dialer say "open apn"
17. delete the one you see
18. select reset to default

now you should see 2 apns and a little circle beside both

click the circle beside "cricket"

REBOOT TWICE AND WAIT FOR THE SYSTEM TO CATCH UP

download this mms.apk (this is not mine.. i found it for the evo 4g somewhere)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/iq42wk65ifolv8u/Mms.apk

using es file explorer, delete your old mms.apk under system/apps
remember, you have to mount es as root rw every time you reboot

roboot and move the new mms.apk to the system/apps and install

next reboot

go back into es file and (set root rw again)move to the new mms.apk.
long press it and chose permissions.


set your permissions like the screenshot in at the bottom

this has been proven on my evo3d

NOTE. if you are a flashaholic, you will store the mms.apk and the apns-config.xml on your sd card so you can do this with every flash

if this helped you, press the thanks button please!!!

why the hell hasn't more people been to directed to this thread with unbeatable mms problems with cricket just changing apn settings DOES NOT WORK for alot of cricket users.

Edit: guess i shoulda seen that it was done on a evo3d as it didn't work for my evo 4g i shoulda known when two lines were missing from the build prop. as soon as i got to the voice dialer with the apns there were no apns listed and hitting reset to default brough nothing. back to the battery sucking no blue tooth everything cricket rom. Ive tried litterally hundreds of roms and mustve edited apns 1000 times and still cant get mms to work except for one rom.

The mms.apk was found on a evo 4g site somewhere. Maybe there is something else. Or maybe it was a 4g LTE. I don't remember now, but I know it will not work on stock versions of sprint ROMs. I tried.....
