Type these codes in phone dialer:

*#*#307#*#* Enable engineering apps in launcher
*#*#308#*#* Disable engineering apps in launcher

(... and reboot - depends on your launcher)

Froyo Notes:
The codes work on Android 2.2, however you have to change property "ro.build.CONFIG_BUILDTYPE_SHIP" in /system/build.prop from 1 to 0.

Apps will appear in launcher
  • Calibrator
  • CDMA NAM Programming
  • Dev Tools
  • EMList
  • Log Master
  • Neocore
  • OOD_OOM
  • Qualcomm Settings
  • QVTester-04
  • Spare Parts
  • VerificationSuite

so try EMList or Neocore ...

Hey thanks moneytoo!!! Using this menu, I now have the option to install unknown sources. I have posted a thread detailing the steps if you haven't set it up on your device already.

Sent from my Dell Streak using XDA App

Moor cool codes

I'm using a Dell Streak US version 1.6 build 6601 and they work on my phone.

Check out this code. * # * # 4 6 3 6 # * # *

I can't post the web site, but if you message me I'll be glad to pass it on.

Im sure this info is here some where on XDA, but this looks like a good place to have it.

Thanks All

BTW this code was for version 2.1, but worked well on 1.6

Thanks for the code. However, not all of the apps appear on mine, specifically:

CDMA NAM Programming
Neocore
OOD_OOM
Qualcomm Settings
QVTester-04
VerificationSuite

I am on stock 1.6 (build 6601) on AT&T. I don't really have a use for them, I just think there is nothing cooler than having a real developer phone. :D

If they are not available, could I extract them from a different ROM, such as the 02 1.6?

I changed this setting in that file, and this did not allow me to enter engineering mode. I also rebooted after saving the file, and opened it to make sure the setting was changed. I am running the official 2.2 release, and would love to be able to unlock the engineering apps.. Thanks, Brian

Worked for me. At first it said something about wrong password on sd card.
Then i changed the build.prop as stated, rebooted and typed in *#*#307#*#* and voila EMLIST and all other apps now appearing!

You dont need to input the code btw or change your build.prop to access EMList or the other hidden apps.
[edit] I just realized this, sorry.
You may have to actually be using ADW to do this. I'm not entirely sure if "Activities" is able to be selected if your not using ADW. It has an ADW icon.


Just longpress on the homescreen>custom shortcut>pick your activity>activities>EMList>Emlist(.EMListInstaller)

click the shortcut n your done. Everything the code would've gave you access to is now available. You can now remove the shortcut. To remove do the same thing but choose Emlist(.EMListUnInstaller) for your shortcut.

You can also just make a shortcut to the individual apps that you want rather then installing EMList and having them all occupy your app tray. They are all listed under activity already. ;)

Now that was valuable information. Worked like a charm. Thank you for this one!

Ok, problem... I did this:
With ADW Launcher - I longpressed an open area on homescreen.

1. Chosed "Shortcut" (did not see >custom shortcut>pick your activity>activities>, only shortcut)
2. Choose "Activity" (I didn't see any Activity, just Applications, Bookmark etc)

So what did I do wrong?

Is it possible to get into the Engineering Mode in DSC 1.7?
How?
Entering the code does nothing and I cant find EMList in the activities of the Launcher.
