Flash Moto Droid to Cricket / Metro full apps, web,mms.




This is my attempt to recreate the solution from Howard Forums

i may have missed a few steps along the way but here it goes. as of 08/02/2010 - make directory now for 2.2 roms

FILES FOR FLASHING TO CRICKET (U2nl,PRL's,Autostart,SPRecovery,NV items)


Special thanks and credit should go to
SyZtyM (i recreated his thred for XDA)
gijoey1980
Tracphonejunkie
whiterabittorg
To0
Insaincain (For the nv items. You are a legend, and credit is due where credit is due**AS read from SyZtyM)
Admin (For all sites. PERIOD)

You will need:
1. CDMA WS 2.7 (google)
2.Harware Virtural Serial Port this is the demo good for 14days
3. Motorola A855 USB drivers (These are the 32bit Drivers)
4. Cyanogen Mod Rom from Rom Manager in market
5. SPRecovery
6&7.Autostart.sh & U2nl from whitrabbit.org (thanks to whiterabbit). Save autostart.sh and U2nl in C:\android\tools\.
8.download Autostart (Root) from Market
9. NV items from http://www.whiterabbit.org/android (u must generate this uniquely with you mdn@mycricket.com i have included a generated xxx@mycricket.com.text for sample or to replace x's with you MDN


Step 1. First step is to make sure you have the drivers installed on your computer, and you also need to have Android SDK installed on your computer.

You will need to root the phone, key here is to make sure the kernel you load supports iptables.

Step 2. if you need to ROOT: follow the guide
than download Rom manager over wifi from MARKET, proceed to flash clockwork and download and install cyanogen 5.xx rom, and google apps..wipe data etc.

Step 2.1 if first fails. get RSD Lite 4.6 (google), Power on phone holding down the up arrow and pressing power, this will put you into bootloader mode.
Open RSD Lite 4.6
Flash the SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf file with RSD Lite.
this should just flash the recovery if not download a rom like SMOKEDGLASS unzip and put in folder on SD named Nandroid

Once the phone is completely rebooted into rooted android, power it off.
alternately u can install BuglessBeast froyo v 02.1 from alldroid.org then skip to these steps below


Hold down “T” on the keypad and power on phone.

Plug into computer and open HW Virtual Serial Port (your drivers should install and connect etc)

In HWVS set the IP address to 192.168.16.2 and the port to 11008, choose the com port 10 click connect. (For this tutorial we will use COM10)

Open CDMA WS 2.7 and (go to settings tab and deselect NV Enabled) then connect to COM10. if you dont deselect you will get PHONE FAILED ERRORS

On security tab send SPC 000000. (msg says phone accepts blah blah blah

Go to tab labeled “Other” and write prl. For Cricket EVDO, 6499(new service plan) and 38515 is recommended.

Go to NAM and enter MIN ex. 615-555-5593 (usually different from your actual phone# and MDN(your mobile number ex. 615-555-5551 and click write.

Goto “Memory” tab and click write under NV items, find the downloaded NV items you got from here
for example you must generate the NV items by inputing your MDN(6155555551@mycricket.com). box opens telling you to save them as .txt and select them with cdma 2.7. (Thanks again to insanecain)

It should then say, 12 NV items were successfully written to phone.

Go to Main tab and click mode reset.

You can now close HWVS and CDMA WS and open cmd.exe on your computer.

if you have QPST open it on the com port 10 read your settings. under MIP mip2,,PPP(Um,AN...etc it should say 6155555551@mycricket.com etc in the right columns....in the bottom box password may need to be written to phone, just type in cricket for both Um and An, cricket is the password.

Also select mobile ip+simple ip under MiP tab
select write to phone


Once phone reboots go to the market using WI-FI and download and install Autostart root required

Open the Voice Dialer on the phone and say “Open APNs” and click open.

Click on the Verizon and edit everything to match below:
Name - Cricket
APN internet
Proxy wap.mycricket.com:8080
Port 8080
Username yourphonenumber@mycricket.com
Password cricket
Server wap.mycricket.com
MMSC http://mms.mycricket.com/servlets/mms
MMS Proxy wap.mycricket.com
MMS Port 8080
MCC 310
MNC 004
Authentication Type PAP or CHAP
APN type <Not set>


Now click the menu button and click Save.

Before starting the next step make sure you have the u2nl file in your this folder c:/android/tools and also that you have you autostart.sh file in this folder c:/

Now go to command prompt and type the following commands,
cd c:\android\tools
adb shell
mkdir /data/opt/
exit
adb remount
adb push c:\android\tools\u2nl /system/bin/u2nl
adb push c:\android\tools\autostart.sh /data/opt/autostart.sh
Now:
adb shell
chmod 0755 /system/bin/u2nl
chmod 0755 /data/opt/autostart.sh
adb reboot

Now, once your phone has rebooted, you should have working web, mms, app, gps, and all. If you don’t go back and check all the steps to insure you did everything exactly right.


thanks everyone for reading.

i would also like to thank everyone who helped give back to the droid community by solving this, (I gave up and switched back to my eris for full support like a Beeach! which i bricked twice) im back on DROID baby

currently running BuglessBeast Froyo v 02.1 and the p3 1000 kernel.

I get the phone failed error, but I don't see the NV Enabled option. Nor do I see the settings tab, where is that option?

*edit* did all the changes over...ALL. Still no web. if it helps any i did notice that i was unable to reprogam the phone using *228. it still works rite now (i guess based on the previous OTA), but it wont reprogram...i get "programming unsuccessful".

If your on 2.1 bugless you need to redo allthe steps for fully working rom, maybe for 2.2 also i havent had to for a while, only bcuz i have cricket and roam off metro.

you need to be more specific with wat u deleted?? which rom u ran? etc where did u get it flashed? most likey u went to a metro dealer, to get it flashed, METRO sent out a update a 3 weeks ago (7/06/2010) that DISABLED ALL Dealer added ESN's from Hoodini. so u may just be out of luck. i will search to see if thats been fixed or worked around.
