root needed on some/most
hidden menu needs enabled too
to enable hidden menu when rooted
i used ES File Explorer to edit the following file (mount read write / and /sys (unmount after edit. i thin you only need to mount / read write
/efs/carrier/HiddenMenu from OFF to ON (note the caps)
ES File Explorer has built-in text editor so use that.
when editing the file make sure not to hit enter key. just use backspace to delete OFF then type ON and save. dont hit enter. (you might be able to but dont if you dont have to)

these are codes that i have been using on android 4.3 and up stock roms
some i have used in past roms

please hit like button if you find it usefull
did lots of testing and these are codes relevant to flashing.
there are tons more codes but these are for technical stuff and you have to be very careful
some menus please be real careful
make backups BACKUPS!!!
anything you can!

ok hope you find them usefull
will add meanings later

i have more but i need to find them in my text files

*#27663368378# this one has tons. PRL Write, Pref Mode, System Select. etc....
*#06# MEID
*#9900# logging
*#7284# not really used as *#0808# replaces that and ##3424#
*#0808# one of my favs. QXDM and QPST pay attention here!
##3282# DATA Menu
##366633# Diagnostic Mode
##786# RTN = Return To New
##7764726 tells you if your Official or Custom. Custom = true. Official = false
*#12580*369# tells you about your carrier files and they all need to be matching

pageplus/vzw specific depending on info and prl (also can get uscc stuff with this phone)
*22891 prl update only
#611 it will say pageplus if you flashed correctly
below do not work to good but maybe someone can play with the menu and get it to free up (thats what we had to do in the past)

these are all codes that work on stock touchwiz samsung roms (i have tested and currently use them all the time)
above android 4.3 and probably below too
im in android 4.4.2 r(NAB) ight now but not sure if they work with NAB modem because i been switch to android 4.3 mk2 modem sometimes
i know they work for sure with android 4.3 MK2 and alot with android 4.4.2 NAB on my us cellular note 3

the one on bottom work better in RUIM/SIM mode and all others work in NV_Only mode

im only posting ones relevant to this topic
there are tons more but not of importance to this thread
