Welcome to Cricket Users!



  • Possible Tutorial for Flashing an iPhone to Cricket Wireless



    This is the first time that anyone has tried to post a tutorial on the forum for flashing an iPhone to Cricket. Anyone want to give it a shot?




    hay guys at cricket users i was just searching your forum and i didn't see a tutorial on how to flash an iphone for to cricket so i posted mine tutorial here u guys go! hope u like it

    t
    his is only for the Verizon iPhone 4
    (CDMA)


    First off it doesn't matter whether or not the iPhone 4 (CDMA) you have has a good or bad ESN. CRICKET
    doesn't care.



    Keep in mind only talk and text works. All data will require WiFi but you can't beat unlimited talk and
    text for $40 (plus $5 unlimited international texting)
    .
    Now. You will need to have THIS software .


    IPhone Browser


    CRICKET 45713 PRL


    Configuring the phone for use on cricket the cricketPRL
    1. Jailbreak using either redsn0w (4.2.9) or JailbreakMe (4.2.8 and lower)
    2. Download afc2add on Cydia
    3. Open iPhoneBrowser
    4. Go to /System/Library/Carrier Bundles
    5. Scroll all the way down to Zeppelin_US.bundle
    6. Delete the 310VZW.prl file first then drag the CRICKET 45713 PRL file there




    1. Dial *228 on your iPhone (on the top left it should say Roaming)
    2. Follow voice directions to get the latest Roaming Lists
    3. When it's Done it should say Service Update Complete
    Your phone is now fully configured for use on CRICKET. Easy right?
    To get your ESN you need to convert it from the MEID number the iPhone gives you.
    The ESN should be an 18 digit number (there should be no letters). Google for a MEID to ESN
    converter.

      Have you ever tried to use a jailbroken app called TetherME to change Apn settings or anything ?
