    Iphone4 full flash to cricket info thread(yes it is working already)

    ok,the purpose of this thread is just to post info about it and maybe answer a few questions about it,so here goes...

    yes the viphone4 is fully flashed to cricket

    i will post a couple of youtube links proving it at the bottom of the page

    yes it has banners,carrier and startup cricket custom logos

    it has talk,text,mms,web,apps all working

    right now the sms is still an issue

    why? i did not address the sms issue because i have been working with cricket engineering to correct it
    we have narrowed it down and isolated the problem.

    it is that cricket (and most all other carriers) use IA5 (international alphabet) for intercarrier text.

    viphone4 is by default only set to deal with 8 bit encoding while IA5 is 7 bit,hence the problem.

    we have proof of this in the form of a dump of the switch as the sms comes thru the switch we can see the iphone accept and verify the incomming
    sms,but it is never displayed because it is not understanding the 7 bit encoding so it just dumps and purges the data leaving the user never knowing he/she ever got anything.

    if they dont get it corrected soon i will try and tackle it.

    but everything else is working for now.

    it works on 4.2.6 and 4.2.8

    i have an accelerator i will be including with the flash,or i will sell seperatly,you can see in the video how fast that phone is,it is the fastest ive ever seen a phone(its amazing).

    the solution will not ever be for sale,but the flash will.

    yes you will be able to flash them from your own stores.

    what am i waiting for to release it?

    i am working on locking it down and making it secure,prolly be hdwid and possibly a lock on the filesystem (amoamare's filesystem lock idea) nice going on that bro..

    estimated release time--- not sure,this took 7 months to develope the flash so the lock will take a little time as well.i will kepp peeps posted,but please understand its not going to ready right away.

    ask questions if you got em.i will try to answer them as i can. i am an admin on another forum and own a some cricket stores also so i am pretty bizzy

    but be patient and i will get to them.

    this will not be a free solution as i have 7 months invested and alot of late nights and frustration in this.

    no i do not have a price yet because at this point i am not sure how it will be sold yet because the security is not in place yet.

    So why would Cricket bother to do a switch dump to help you fix the sms problem if the iphone is the only phone to use a different character set? Whats in it for them to get it fixed?

    this is the thread as i posted it on 6-21-11

    Update on cricket iphone text message problem
    ok most of you know about the problems with cricket iphone incomming and outgoing text messaging...

    i was approched by the crickets engineering dept. last week to "put our heads together" and try and get a solution for this problem.

    i was asked not to be specific with details of names or pesonal info,so i wont.

    but have come to the conclusion that it is a problem not with cricket,but with phone its self,and the lack of ability to deal with IA5 encoding (international alphabet) very similar to the default 7 bit gsm alphabet,and also ASCII,and also possible issues with the way the phone is programmed to handle the sms because of the difference in logging for facetime,which uses not only data,but sms also.

    i was sent a dump or a trace of a sms sent from a pocketpcs to cricket viphone that shows the proof that what we suspected was in fact true.the phone you will see acknowledges the receiving of the sms,but is unable to deal with the IA5 encoding and then reports, dumps and parses leaving the user not knowing they ever got a message.

    also the engineering dept just informed me that cricket to cricket doesn't work if the receiver is an iPhone being served by Sprint. Sprint errors the message saying it is missing a mandatory parameter. Doesn't happen with the android as the receiver.

    all messages comming in from intercarriers come to cricket as an IA5 ITU-T T.50 encoded message.which is the common form of encoding



    Code:
    here is a link for more info IA5  encoding
    
    Character encoding


    i will add to this as i find info. here is the trace from cricket notice where i underlined the segment showing the sms encoding. Cricket to Cricket uses 7-bit ASCII. Looks like the iPhone is capable of presenting the ASCII-7 bit encoding scheme and that's why Cricket to Cricket SMS works.

    load this ipsw,it has a cricket prl in it.it is from to0 which most of us know.however it is on the older platform of 4.2.6 so you will most likely be downgrading,so google for a guide to downgrad viphone4 back down to 4.2.6 but really is not to difficult. but i can tell you that you will need ireb,and tinyumbrella which are readily available on the net.

    Try *2 or *228

    If it still doesn't work check the esn from the phone and confirm it matches the sticker und the battery.

    If it matches and its correct in the system your next course of action is to manually program.

    What
