I just did this to my 3D. Worked perfectly! Will this work on my wife's Evo Shift? Does it work on pretty much any sprint phone??? And does this impact battery life at all, or should it have any impact on battery life?

Thanks.

Nice.. got my msl.. I changed a few things that I have changed on my TP2 and Evo4G like :)

Enabled USB charging
Slot cycle index to 1 ..delay between phone checking tower for incoming calls.. aka slightly quicker ring time..
ACCOLC to 2 ...priority on tower - set between 2-9 .. 2 is highest.. 1 is for emergency numbers
EVRC-B to enable ....all of the follwing are for supposed better voice quality... can't say I notice a difference..
Home Orig - EVRC-B
Roam Orig - EVRC-B

and..
HTTP Proxy Port to 0
HTTP Proxy Address to 0.0.0.0 .. 3g internet speed increase



Seems to be working great...

accolc is best set at 9. 10-15 are emergency channels.
evrc-b is better than evrc however not all towers support this and theres a potential for missed calls, etc.

Many many thankx to him!! :D

If you want to thank me, thank him insted :D

This will give us something to do until we get root :(

I only updated some pics and minor information. Also made it a lil easier on the Evo 3D community :p

The above post is such a big crap using so much stupidity to get MSL, just go to market , download MSL Reader (by ESCode) and you get it within seconds , you have to be rooted .:good:

Nice, you corrected a method that was posted over a year ago. Good for you, buddy!

Thanks for this information!! When I go to "advanced" & "RTSP\HTTP settings" everything is already at zero's. Now, I cannot see the RTSP proxy I.P. or the HTTP proxy I.P., but the RTSP proxy port and the HTTP proxy port are both sitting at zero and I did not see what is posted for the original settings (rtsp.vog.sprintpcs.com). Anyone else, or is just me?

Perhaps a tweak script is already taking care of this for you? I haven't really noticed much benefit in this anyway... plus, mine keeps reverting back.

I think it's a good idea to mention in the OP that owners of Rooted phones can use MSL Reader (on Google Play)

Also, I just had my phone replaced due to screen problems, and it already had the settings in the OP, interestingly.

Agreed. Anyone reading on here just needs to download the app.

For anyone doing this, can you double check to see if your settings stick after a reboot? Mine keeps reverting back. I am on a rooted mean ROM with s-off 1.4 hboot.

    TO GET YOUR MSL USING CDMA WORKSHOP

    Please be very careful with CDMA Workshop. I am not responsible for your curiosity, or stupidity!

    I have included screenshots for installing the drivers on Windows 7 x64. This seems to be a little different for most users, so I hope this helps. Windows XP should be pretty similar to below. You can enter Device Manager the same way. Some of the prompts will be slightly different, but at the end most of the same dialogs will appear.

    Prerequisites:
    CDMA Workshop - http://www.cdma-ware.com/workshop.html
    The Demo version will be able to retrieve the MSL.

    HTC Diag Drivers - http://www.techwerkz.com/evo/HTCDiagDrivers.zip
    I have compiled this zip which includes both x86 (32 bit), and x64 (64 bit) drivers for HTC diagnostics. I have successfully tested the x64 drivers on Windows 7, and all works without issue.

    The Fun Part
    Step 1 - Dial ##DIAG# (##3424#) on your phone.

    Step 2 - Connect the phone to the computer via the USB cable. When prompted to install the drivers use the drivers from the ZIP provided above.

    Windows will probably not be able to find the drivers:
    1.jpg


    You will need to manually install the drivers from Device Manager. Quickest way to get there is to press the Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog. Type in devmgmt.msc:
    2.jpg


    Once Device Manager is open you will see it cannot find the HTC Diag driver :(:
    3.jpg


    Right click on HTC Diag, and go to Update Driver. You will be prompted with the following, choose Browse my Computer. Then choose Let me Pick. Click Next. Click Have Disk. Browse to the drivers you downloaded, and choose the proper INF file. Click Next. Then finally Yes, if prompted :eek::

    5.jpg

    6.jpg

    7.jpg

    8.jpg

    9.jpg

    10.jpg


    If all went well you will see it installing the driver. Then finally let you know it was successfully installed!
    11.jpg

    13.jpg



    Step 3 - Run CDMA Workshop you downloaded earlier.

    Once CDMA Workshop is open click the word Port found on the left:
    A2izy0j


    You will be given the options to select the correct COM port (Please note the demo version will only go to COM9. If you have an issue with this please follow this tutorial written by me to lower you port if you have one above 9.....

    1. Connect your phone to computer and dial ##3424#

    2. Go to device manager and double click modem.. you should see something named HTC USB modem #2 if you see that do a right click and click propeties (it might freeze for a few seconds, if nothing happens try again.)

    3. Once the propeties window opens click on the tab advance.

    4. Look for Advance Port Settings, and click it.

    5 .A new window should open.. now u should be able to see the option to change the COM Port its called COM Port Number... Make sure you change it to port 9 and below... Once you done changing the port press ok, ok and exit device manager

    You succesfully change your port! and now you are able to use CMDA Workshop!

    Y98ze3a


    Once the correct COM port is selected click Connect:
    9ifULb5

    NIk2YxY


    Head over to the Security tab and click Read under the SPC / User Lock section:
    6uJjkfy


    If all has gone well you will be given your MSL code! It is the 6 digit number listed after pressing Read. Great Success! :D

    Testing
    The following sections should prompt for your MSL code. Enter what you have retrieved to find out if it is in fact the correct MSL code.

    ##data# (##3282#)
    ##debug#(##33284#)
    ##diag#(##3424#)
    ##svn#(##786#)
    ##prev#(##7738#)
    ##vocoder# (##8626337#)

    If you followed the steps correctly, the code should work.

    Hope this helps everyone with finding their MSL when Sprint will not give it to you. Again, I am not responsible for what you do with this information. This is a use at your own risk method!

    Enabled USB charging
    Slot cycle index to 1 ..delay between phone checking tower for incoming calls.. aka slightly quicker ring time..

    Home Orig - EVRC-B
    Roam Orig - EVRC-B

    and..
    HTTP Proxy Port to 0
    HTTP Proxy Address to 0.0.0.0 .. 3g internet speed increase



    Seems to be working great...

    I made a video of how to do this and a speed test of before and after. check it out if you want. Did'nt see a video of how to do this on here. sorry if there is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd0or6dmQK0&feature=channel_video_title

    Thank you for your enthusiasm. But, can I have my retinas back?

    be careful with this. although the old proxies from 2.2 did slow down speeds and did not reroute data correctly, the new ones increase streaming video streams, correctly and efficiently set you on a sprint tower for 3G and make 4G connections faster, and pre-encode streams.

    so although you will get faster download speeds for normal data packets, in the end you will wind up with alot more headaches.

    so thats just my .2cents on this. be sure to write down the old proxies and ports should you need to revert.
