  • [VIDEO] How to manually update the PRL on the Huawei Mercury M886

    So I was trying to pull newer PRLs for the forum and noticed that a flashed phone was picking up a different PRL when using *228 than the Huawei Mercury. There was a definite need to pull the PRL from the Merc.

    Changing PRLs manually can come in handy if you are not in an area where you can *228 your phone. If you have your own preferred roaming list, you might find this of use as well.

    Thanks: - writeup for the Ascend we utilized is here:
    avillal87 - for finding that writeup

    Installing Drivers

    Download these drivers and use the appropriate installer for your operating system (32 or 64 bit Windows).

    Putting phone into Manufacture Mode

    On your phone open the dialer and punch in *#*#2846579#*#*. Select ProjectMenu > Background setting > USB ports setting then select Manufacture mode

    Connect USB cable to the phone.

    Updating your PRL (QPST)

    1. Install QPST (link in the flashing files section of the forum). Run QPST Configuration: Open Start menu > All Programs > QPST
    2. Go to device manager and make sure you see DBAdapter Reserved Interface under Ports
    3. In QPST Configuration, if you already don't see the port that your phone is on, go ahead and click Add New Port
    4. In the Port field, add the port that you saw in Device Manager
    5. Once you have added the port and QPST recognizes your phone, click on the port your phone is under and click Start Client and choose Service Programing
    6. Select the Roam tab and click Read from phone
    7. You will now be asked for the 6-digit SPC number which is 000000.
    8. Click Browse and look for the PRL you want to use. Utilize the Cricket PRL thread if needed (
    9. Now click Write to Phone. The file will flash and the phone will reboot.
