Arrow Secret Code / Hidden Menu tester needed

Hi,

As you may know, you cannot enter the secret codes (e.g. *#0011#, *#27663368378#...) on a device that has not been enabled the HiddenMenu.
I need someone to help me to test if these codes work on your device by using my app: Shortcut Master.

Here is how:
- Install Shortcut Master app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...cutmaster.lite
- Go to menu 'Secret Code Explorer', select your desire code (e.g. 0011, 27663368378, 0228, etc...) and tap to launch it.
- You can select 'Launch 0' or 'Launch 1' to test if it work. 'Launch 0' requires ROOT access.

Please kindly test and feedback. Thanks.

It should work. Thank you for the feedback.

But in fact I want to check if my app works with a phone that has not been enabled the HiddenMenu.

I tried the first two that you gave as examples and both worked. I have not enabled the HiddenMenu.

EDIT: I only tried the Launch 0 option

Works for me as well when I use the root required method.
LTE is amazing.

Yes, I see. I have also faced with the same problem as you

I can't remember but there is a code that clear the APN settings. To fix it, you have to add the APN manually:

open Settings --> More networks --> Mobile networks --> Access Point Names --> + to add

If you don't know what parameters to input, you may have to contact your service provider (your mobile operator) for help.
