I need some clarification please.
Virgin mobile SG2 (4g)
Hardware version D710
Software version GB28
Android version 4.1.2
Kernel version 3.0.31-1014481
I AM ROOTED
1) Can I use a Clockworkmod Recovery for this phone?If so, where and how? If not, is Odin how we flash to different roms?
2) How do you create a current backup of your current rom????? WOULD LOVE TO KNOW!!!!!!!
3) Since I have GB28, do I have to worry about flash to other Roms with different numbers or does that not even matter?
4) May be stupid...Can I unlock this cell. I know.... has no sim. Also, how can I get the MSL number. The normal ways cant find it. Even VM said they dont have it....liars I think.
5) Can I get JB 4.2.2 on this??
Also, I do have Odin on my cell and my pc with the Samsung driver
you can get youre msl by installing a terminal emulator and type in...''su''without quotes/hit enter..then type...''getprop ril.MSL''without quotes and msl with caps..should work.. if not try an app from playstore.. as far as cwm goes..with our device the recovery is tied to the kernel.So you will need to flash a new kernel..Im not sure if the gb27 kernel will boot with youre rom..but im guessing it will because its 4.1.2. if youre brave you can use mobile odin to flash it..you can get mobile odin lite here on xda or playstore and all youre kernel,modem,etc. at rwilco's repo in the android development thread,top 3 post...as far as roms go... there are somr virgin mobile roms, im not sure if others will work as i have boost,but i would think its fine..you will have to change youre apn's to get data/mms after you flash a rom..because it will be sprint everything..So get you msl and check all youre apn settings and write them down..you can flash roms from the safe cwm recoveries made by members,but it is usually advised to flash from el26 or the el29 direct boot kernel.Or you can use odin..google qbking77..he makes the best vids for this device and odin..Read the op well of the rom youre looking to flash...
...I would do some more research as im not sure about this virgin mobile deal..but im pretty sure you should be ok..There is all kinds of guides in this forum..its the best ive been in on xda in my opinion..good luck.....Ill dig around and see if i can come up with a definitive answer for ya.......there is a space between getprop and ril.MSL...

...ok ive looked around...you should be able to flash whatever you want...by the way 4.2.2 roms are in the original develolpment thread and you will need an ics modem on jb roms...the op will tell you the preferred flashing instructions.. if you need more help i can link you to a step by step i put together for using mobile odin to flash roms...fyi...most roms come with a custom kernel..

here is the link to my write up... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2418320
... Post 5 is where you want to look in that thread.. There are links to the repo and a link for a lite version of mobile odin here on xda..just install the mobile odin apk. with a file browser,you will need to check unknown sources in settings..good luck..
Note3 : Jelly 'Beans' ( 4.3 )
E4GT : Project X 3.8.3 ( 4.1.2 )
GT-P7510 : Omni ( 4.4 )
Thanks Dev's for these Awesome Roms...
