    How to change SPC to 000000 on your sprint galaxy! By pid1981


    [Modem/Baseband] Sprint GS3 Flashable Radios LEN | LF9 | LG2 | LG8 | LI3 | LJ7




    Disclaimer:
    (1) This is not my work. I've simply collected files from various people/threads in the hopes of saving everyone time and effort. See credits below.
    (2) Flashing radios is among the most dangerous thing we can do to our devices. If you flash any of these on your AT&T, T-Mobile, etc., you're very likely to brick your phone. While I have tested all of these files, you flash at your own risk. Again, this is Sprint only.

    Instructions

    Right now, there are different ways to switch radios based on the version you're looking for. Only 1 file is needed for the LJ7, LI3, LG8, and LG2 radios. Two files for the LEN and LF9 radios.

    There is no magic or perfect modem. Try them out. See how they work for your phone in your coverage area. YMMV.

    From newest to oldest:

    Looking for the LJ7 Radio?
    Flash this file from recovery:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/fm7afh...S3LJ7Modem.zip



    md5: 2b2d330ff79934b3bd01e8b4663c3625

    *****

    Looking for the LI3 Radio?
    Flash this file from recovery:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/8919cj...S3LI3Modem.zip



    md5: f8942c3b12a6fb856ac19acdaf8787e4

    *****

    Looking for the LG8 Radio?
    Flash this file from recovery:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/u4793w...S3LG8Modem.zip



    md5: 840e11a63d5b0e84d463b268f3218752

    *****

    Looking for the LG2 Radio?
    Flash this file from recovery:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/ve8ed0...S3LG2Modem.zip



    md5: EBFE67CCA6D2D415318CE490AA3ABA46

    *****

    Looking for the LF9 Radio?
    Step 1:
    Put this file at the root of the internal SD card (aka /sdcard), not on your micro SD card:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/s3tubb...i/modem.backup



    md5: E3407B99E022406C33DB82662B512A81

    Step 2:
    Flash this file from recovery:
    Restore Modem Flashable Zip

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/qvt2e9...storeModem.zip



    md5: 52BFCACBC872A62FB4FA3AE72CB212C9
    ***Note: Though it doesn't have to be at the root of the card, this zip should be placed somewhere on your internal SD card (aka /sdcard) as well otherwise it may not see the modem.backup file.***
    If everything works, you'll see a progress bar during the flashing process. Don't see a progress bar? Then the radio hasn't been flashed.

    *****

    Looking for the LEN Radio?
    Step 1:
    Put this file at the root of the internal SD card (aka /sdcard), not on your micro SD card:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/m6j3bf...a/modem.backup



    md5: 36A63A357D34DBD7A3B2B80F9AE4686E

    Step 2:
    Flash the "Restore Modem" flashable zip file from recovery (see above).
    ***Note: Though it doesn't have to be at the root of the card, this zip should be placed somewhere on your internal SD card (aka /sdcard) as well otherwise it may not see the modem.backup file.***
    If everything works, you'll see a progress bar during the flashing process. Don't see a progress bar? Then the radio hasn't been flashed.


    Alternate Method

    Clark44...an amazing dev with a great TW ROM (
    check out FreeGS3 here


    ) and all around nice guy has worked with Team Sonic to create the Modem Flasher for All tool. While I haven't tried it yet, I recommend you check it out. Especially if you have any problems with the zips posted in this thread.

    Clarks' modem flasher thread can be found here:

    Credit:
    First and foremost, Freeza. He's done all the heavy lifting and deserves all the credit. The LG2, LG8, and LI3 flashable modems were originally posted here:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1743923


    . You can also find all the modems as well as All-In-One baseband/firmware update files here:
    Goo.im Downloads - Browsing freeza


    . I created the LJ7 modem flashable zip by pulling the modem out of the LJ7 All-In-One file.

    klarthur posted the original "restore modem" zip here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3#post28816933




    Naddict posted his LEN backup here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=14




    I used by own backup of the LF9 modem to share here, though I think the backup was made by Freeza's LG2 upgrade zip.

    Thank you Freeza for giving me the "ok" to repost your files here.




    How to change SPC to 000000 on your sprint galaxy!


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here is an easy way to do. So easy a cave man can do it.
    I am assuming that you know your MSL code, if you don't there are many guides on this forum for that.
    I am using QPST 2.7 Build 374.

    1)You must downgrade your radio to LG2 (search the forum, there are guides to do that)
    2)After you downgrade, you will be able to read the phone in QPST EFS explorer.
    3)Read the phone with EFS explorer
    4)Move NV item 85 to a folder to your desktop. Change it to "000000" hex code 303030303030
    5)Load back the NV item back to your phone and Voila, you are done.
    After your change your SPC to "000000" you can upgrade your radio again.
    Do not PM me, feel free to ask questions on here.


    Thanks go out to

    and
    pid1981


    for all there hard work.

    Hmmn... No more beer while messing with QPST! I deleted the existing NV item 85 to write the new one and exited QPST before it wrote. (VERY dumb drunken mistake on my part!!!) I now have no ro.ril.MSL line in terminal getprop. Know of any other ways to change MSL that don't require sending one first?
