    Problems flashing Evo 3d

    Hi

    hopefully someone can give me some insight. If so thank you in advance

    I just went thru the tutorial on how to flash the phone. I got to near the end of part 1. everything seemed to go fine the phone has my phone number and min, user name etc.

    the internet connects however it is showing up in device manager as android with an error- I downloaded android spk and the apk backuprestore file. However every time I try to install the driver it says not found?

    also I tried to call out and I get account cannot be validated.

    any suggestions?

    Thanks again

    Update***

    So I figured out the drivers installed them and now it is showing in device manager under android My HTC.

    The internet works over 3g

    however when I try to make a call it sayd account cannot be validated.

    I finished the tutorial weird thing is I have no apk files anywhere

    maybe thats the issue?

    I think your meid is wrong on your account, The internet will still work but no calls if it has the wrong meid.

    sounds like that may be it- any idea how to fix it?

    I just checked the meid numbers listed when doing ##786# they match the back of the phone.

    could something be corrupted?

    I just called cricket confirmed my MIN number and the MEID numbers match the back of the phone- can it be something the apk files or the prl to make the talk and text not work?

    could this be because I did not swap the esn?

    I want to give this as a gift next month so dont really want to pay to swap to mine and then his- but I also dont want to give it and it not work for him!

    Is there a way to tell if the flash was successful without putting it on my plan?
    then all he would have to do is call cricket and swap it out right?

    Philly is an AWS area so it could be your PRL....also I would suggest you go thru QPST again and check you settings... follow this thread http://www.cricketusers.com/flashing...s-cricket.html and you should be go to go..



    EDIT***YEAH THAT's DEFINITELY IT...THE PHONE WON'T WORK WITHOUT ACTIVATING THE ESN..and there is no way really to tell without activating the ESN...you could always become a supporting member here and get 2 ESN swaps a month for a whole year for the Price of one ESN swap at a cricket store..just thought though..

    also if you are giving the phone to someone you will have to reflash the phone and put all his info into it before he can get it working on cricket for himself...so you can always just give it to him then test it when you reflash it for him..

    Have you resolved your problem? I can send you a copy of my qpst file. All you have to do is load it and put your number and min where needed then write to phone. Prl is included
