    Full Flash Sprint HTC Evo Shift to Cricket: Talk, Text, MMS, Internet

    This tutorial is covering placing a Froyo Evo Shift on the Cricket Android plan. If you obtain root for the device, it can also be put on the $45 plan. The easiest method of doing this is GreenK45 (it is currently being redone at the moment). Please refer to our EVO thread about using u2nl and autostart to setup the phone for the $45 plan.

    We did not update this particular device to Gingerbread because of some bugs we had heard about. This tutorial will most likely work for those on Gingerbread. It does for the Evo.

    Let it be known that sometimes Cricket says they have put you on the $55 Android plan, but they put you on the All in 55 Plan (5m5) / Mexico $55 dollar plan. This will not allow your Internet to work properly without rooting/proxy methods.

Also use the contact us form for any modifications you need made to your account or additional help.

    Anyways moving right along. We'll establish the items that you will need. This is usually similar across the board.

    A. QPST (QPST Version 2.7 Build 355)

    B. HTC Diagnostic drivers for the Evo Shift (attached on this thread [32 and 64 bit])

    C A Windows PC with either Win7, XP or Vista plus your Evo 3D with a USB cord.

    D. PRL (*STICKY* Official Cricket PRL Thread)

    E. CDMA workshop (google) OR CDMA Workshop 2.7 Download) to get the MSL (aka SPC) if you don't know it already.

    F. OPTIONAL: Android SDK which includes ADB drivers. (
    Android SDK | Android Developers


    )

    Please watch the video and use the tutorial here. It helps to use both.





    SPC/MSL Obtaining

    Skip through all these screens on the EVO Shift until you are at the home screen. Go into the phone dialer and hit ##3424#. You might have to hit talk after this. It'll cause the phone to go into DIAG mode. You'll see the device on your computer. Use the diagnostic drivers (specify their specific location) to complete the install.

    Now you can find your MSL using CDMA Workshop.

    For CDMA Workshop, the port number has to be fairly low. I think we're talking about under 30. You'll see when you start it though. Look at your device manager to figure out the port that it's on. Select that port and then hit connect. Go over to the security tab and for SPC hit read. It'll give you your MSL/SPC. The best thing to do here is to use the SPC button then SEND command to send this number back to the phone and unlock it. Then type in 000000 or some number that's easy to remember. Hit the SPC button and WRITE. Now the MSL/SPC is 000000 or whatever you typed. This is all you need to do with CDMA Workshop.

    Programming

    This is the point where you will be using QPST. Use this tutorial to setup the EVO Shift correctly. Note that the mobile IP behavior must be Simp or you will get errors on your EVO Shift from time to time.

    Ignore any NV read errors you get when writing to the phone.

    Once you get done with this part, talk and text will work. If you are on the $55 Android the Internet should work. However...

    Working with new devices (never activated)

    If you watched the video, between part 1 and 2 we have a little change in plan here. This was due to the fact that our device was brand new and never activated. The hands free activation kept on popping up, and we don't believe the device had accepted all of the programming at that time. Our hunt led is to Sprint's website.

    Dial ##(and your SPC, we set it to 000000)#. This will open up the EPST menu. Click edit mode. Put in the proper Mobile Directory number (your phone number) and the MSID (your MIN). Hit the menu button and then select commit modifications. The phone will reboot.

    Once the phone has rebooted, go to the dialer again and hit ##data#. Click edit mode and enter your SPC for access. Make sure the settings look like it does below:

    Active Profile: 1
    User Name: yournumber@mycricket.com (put your phone number in this)
    Reverse Tunnel Preferred: Enable
    Home IP Address: 0.0.0.0
    Primary Home Agent: 0.0.0.0
    Second Home Agent: 0.0.0.0
    HA Shared Secret: cricket
    AAA Shared Secret: cricket

    You can try hitting menu and commit modifications, but it will most likely tell you there were no changes made. Back out, go to advanced and then continue with the multimedia streaming setup below.

    Media Streaming

    Youtube videos might not play unless you modify some settings. Sprint by default routes media through their servers. To change this dial ##data# from the dialer on the Evo. You will get to the EPST settings. Click edit and then enter the MSL. It will prompt you for a password which is the MSL aka SPC.

    Once you get past that, go to advanced > RTSP Proxy Address (for stock Gingerbread it's advanced > RTSP/HTTP Setting > RTSP Proxy Port). Make this 0.0.0.0. Also make the HTTP PD Proxy Address 0.0.0.0. Also change the ports for both of these to 0. Back out and you should be good.

    MMS

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='yes' ?>
    <apns count="1">
    <apn name="CDMA-MMS" numeric="46605" mcc="466" mnc="05" apn="mms" user="your10digit#here" server="NA" password="cricket" proxy="wap.mycricket.com" port="8080" mmsproxy="null" mmsport="null" mmsprotocol="null" mmsc="http://mms.mycricket.com/mycricket/mms.php" type="mms" />
    </apns>

    Just edit the "your10digit#here" part with your phone number and save this.

    Place it on your phone's SDCard under a folder called "apnbackuprestore". Then open the Android App APN Backup and Restore (included in this thread and on the Market) on your Evo. Backup the stock settings. Then delete APNs and restore the new APNs you just created.

    You should have everything working now. Talk, text, MMS, and Internet. There are a few more steps left to enhance the experience. Below is my attempt to fix a step that I left out.

    YOU HAVE COMPLETE THE FULL FLASHING TO CRICKET. ENJOY!

    There is no link posted to the Diagnostic Drivers in step B.

    Am I missing something?

    APN problems

    I have a problem getting 3g to work. I have the phone on 2.3.3. It just does not want to show 3g. I know I am in a good market because I have a flashed phone right now and it works perfectly.

    What is the radio version on your phone? You sometimes need to put the phone in a bootloader mode for it to go through (for the stock update).

    For DAEZ1.
    Download APN backup and restore from the market or from 4shared.com. Then click on Backup APNs. Connect your phone to the computer, and choose Disk Drive. Then find the APNS backup and restore folder on your SD card (which is in the phone). You will see the XML file that's you just backed up (if there are more than 1, just delete all others, and leave 1 only). Right click on the file, click on edit, delete everything in it (it will open in notepad), and paste that entire MMS script (that you posted) and change the word your10digitnumber, to your actual cricket number. Save the file. Unplug the phone from USB, or choose Charge only for the connection. Then go back to APN backup and restore. Choose "Delete APNs". Once deleted, click on "Restore APNs". Choose that file that you just edited. Restore it and reboot the phone. That's it.

    As long as you have your name number and MIN you can flash the phone. If done correctly your Internet will work prior to the esn change.

    *If it's flashed for the 45 dollar plan you'd have to be on that plan or the 55 for the net to work actually. If flashed to be on the 55 dollar Android plan, net will start working only if on that plan.

    Please consider becoming a supporting member when you need your ESN changed.

    Thank you.
