Here is the fix for acquiring MSL on the FI25, FI27 ICS, FK23, FL04 & FL16/GBxx/GCxx JB builds.
Please flash the FI03 bin toolbox prior to attempting to get your MSL.
Flash the STOCK bin toolbox file provided below for your rom build to return the bin file back to stock (maybe not necessary but I like to leave things the way they were ).
Cheers - TD

How to get your MSL.
1. Flash the FI03 bin toolbox.
2. Download terminal emulator from the market.
3. Enter at terminal emulator command prompt: getprop ril.MSL
--This will generate a 6 digit code. Write it down and save it!
--(Please note, the command is case sensitive)
4. Flash the Stock bin toolbox file provided below for your rom build to return the bin file back to stock.

The MSL should be six digits, correct?

Thanks for everyone catching this and for this being an easy fix. Didn't even think that this would happen and hopefully it's unintentional (meaning we'll see that fixed in a later version)

I didnt realize people had this issue
(next part is a haha, after that the helpful stuff)

Seriously? you dont have that ma memorized or written on a post it by your bed aling with your roommates wifi wep?

Well, I do but I cant remember the last time I needed to enter a dialer code....

Ive been yellin about this for months and damnit, now youre gonna listen! (someone?)
Apex, or Nova launcher
Longpress homescreen
shortcuts
activities
In this place of wonder lies every shortcut your phone knows... Even the ones that dont work..

in
com.android.sprintmenu
you can access all dialer menus shortcuts starting AFTER the lock...

in settings you can (..over 100 things) setup usb config... Apns...


In wimax hidden you can set your NAPID extensions...
Etc... Etc...
But be careful... The shortcuts for the wipes are in there as well... Ooooo


(even the "get msl" shortcut...)

Red pill or blue pill... You decide!

Thankfully I'm one of the few that has my MSL written down.
