Hi all,


So I've been S=off for a year or two and have jumped around between ROMs with no issues as far as sprints network is concerned.
I recently switched to T-Mobile (One M8!!) and decided to give my phone to my sis since she lost hers recently. She's on Sprint.

We've been able to register or "activate" the phone online and through the phone. The problem is that calls don't come through. We get getting the "we're sorry you're account couldn't be validated" message. Could it be that my prl is out of date? Do I need to unroot?? Any help is greatly welcomed.

Model: EVO
Android verison: 4.4.2
Baseband version: 1.12.11.0809
Kernal version: 3.4.82-g15c16ed build01@cyanogenmod #1 Fri Mar 28 23:45:5 PDT 2014
CyanogenMod version: 11-20140329-NIGHTLY-jewel
Build number: cm_jewel_userdebug 4.4. KVT29L d5e6ae85e4

PRL version: 25017

Thanks in advance for your help!

You have to be on a stock ROM to activate the device.

You probably need to flash a stock, sense based ROM to complete activation.


Edit: I see Captain answered just as I did.

Practically any Sense ROM will work. Just take a look in the development thread and find one to flash. It's highly advised to keep a Sense ROM backup handy in case of future issues. There are things you can do on a Sense ROM that you cannot do on a AOSP ROM like CM.

If you're on the old partition setup you can flash the ROM from this thread:
