    How to Flash HTC Droid Eris to Cricket: Talk, Text, MMS, and Internet

    This thread has been copied and modified slightly. This particular version came from bigslanki at XDA Developers.

    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). This is not where you want to be. You're paying 10 more bucks a month for absolutely nothing over the 45 dollar plan.

    We offer plan change for free to forum members. Just use the contact us link at the very bottom of this page. Premier Supporters of the forum receive additional benefits such as free ESN changes on your account. No more paying $15 everytime you change phones. To become a Premier/Supporting Member, just go to the settings up top and find Paid Subscriptions on the left hand side. Choose a membership level of your liking. Also use the contact us form for any modifications you need made to your account or additional help.

    On to the tutorial...

    ---Start---

    Step 1: Talk and Text
    What you need:

    A QPST (http://www.cricketusers.com/flashing...ild-355-a.html)
    B. HTC Diagnostic drivers for the Eris (attached on this thread [32 and 64 bit])
    C A Windows PC with either win7, XP or Vista
    D. PRL (http://www.cricketusers.com/flashing-tools-files-programming/5041-%2Asticky%2A-official-cricket-prl-thread.html)

    Step 1

    1. Once you have all of the items above installed, go to your number pad on your ERIS and dial ##3424# and hit Call. You will see a screen come up on the ERIS called the "DM Command Service."
    2. Now, plug in your phone via the USB and your computer should install the necessary drivers. These will be the drivers mentioned above.
    3. Once they are installed, open QPST Configuration, Listed under the QPST Folder on your start menu.
    4. Click Ports, then click "Add New Port". You should see a port in the left part of the window. If not, unselect the button that says "Show Serial And USB/QC Diagnostic Ports Only".
    5. Select the port and Click OK. There may be several ports, so repeat this process until you see a port where it says "Surf..."
    6. Take not of which port says Surf.
    7. Click on the Security Tab on the top of the screen and click "Read" under the SPC/User Lock, ensuring that the default setting is listed in the drop-down menu.
    8. Go back to the QPST Configuration and click on "Start Clients" and click on "Service Programming".
    9. It will come up with a window displaying active phones. You should see one, the Surf....(whatever). Select it and click OK.
    10. Click "read from phone". It will ask you for an MSL/SPC Code. Enter 000000.
    11. Click The CDMA Tab. Under Directory Number enter your 10 digit cricket number. Under IMSI_S enter you MIN.
    12. Click The Display Tab and type "Cricket" in the Banner.
    13. Click the Roaming Tab and click "Browse" under the Preferred Roaming box.
    14. Find and select the PRL that you downloaded.
    15. Click Write to Phone on the bottom. Ignore any errors that occur.

    A QPST tutorial is here if you had problems: http://www.cricketusers.com/flashi....html#post6489

    Step 2. Setting up Web

    What you need:
    The same programs and drivers listed above

    1. Connect Phone Via QPST and open Service Programming. (See steps 1-3, 10 above)

    12. Under user ID enter your10digitcricketnumber@mycricket.com as well as for tethered NAI. If a text box is black with red lines in it, click it and press ctrl D. Enter cricket in the password box.
    13.Click "AN" Button and repeat step 12.
    14. Click "write to phone". Ignore any errors that occur.
    YOUR DONE NOW

    --> If you are on the $55 Android plan the Internet should work (reboot will probably be required). If you are on the $45 plan, please continue below.

    For Method 1 (most preferred)

    GreenK45

    For method 2 (preferred)

    Required:

    ADB installed on your computer.... http://www.cricketusers.com/android-...w-youtube.html

    Autostart.sh & U2nl from
    whiterabbit.org


    (thanks to whiterabbit). Save autostart.sh and U2nl in C:\android\tools\. (if you are going to be on the $55 Android plan you don't need to download this)

    Download Autostart (Root) from Market (if you are going to be on the $55 Android plan you don't need to download this). We will also attach this for your convenience.

    Before starting the next step make sure you have the u2nl file in your this folder c:\android\tools and also that you have you autostart.sh file in this folder c:\android\tools
    Now go to command prompt and type the following commands,

    cd c:\android\tools <enter>
    adb shell <enter>
    mkdir /data/opt/ <enter>
    exit <enter>
    adb remount <enter>
    adb push c:\android\tools\u2nl /system/bin/u2nl <enter>
    adb push c:\android\tools\autostart.sh /data/opt/autostart.sh <enter>
    Now:
    adb shell <enter>
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/u2nl <enter>
    chmod 0755 /data/opt/autostart.sh <enter>
    adb reboot <enter>

    For method 3 (least preferred)

    Required: Anycut.apk-- get it in the android market place VIA Wifi. Also attached here for your convenience.

    15. Install the anycut.apk mentioned above on your HTC Eris.
    16. Open Anycut and click New Short Cut.
    17. Click Activity and scroll down to Proxy Settings. Select it and Click Ok on the window that comes up.
    18. Go to The home screen on your Eris and find the Proxy Settings on your Eris.
    19. For Hostname enter: wap.mycricket.com and for port enter 8080.

    For method 4 (web and mms, requires root)

    Requires: Cricket MMS v10 zip which is attached below. Root access with a recovery image (ClockworkMod or Amon_RA).

    If you're not rooted with a recovery image,

    Root Method 1 (one click APK): Root the Droid Eris (One click apk method)
    Root Method 2 (Unrevoked): Root the Droid Eris (Unrevoked Method)
    Flash the MMS v10 zip just like you would a ROM. As always, it is encouraged to do a nandroid backup.

    If MMS doesn't work, please continue to follow the tutorial for MMS.

    Step 3: MMS!
    What you need:
    a. Android SDK---
    b. Modified Telephony.db --
    c. Have Eris phone flashed for talk text and web (see above if you have not done this).

    Root the phone and get a recovery image on it if you haven't already.

    To recap from earlier:

    If you're not rooted with a recovery image,

    Root Method 1 (one click APK): Root the Droid Eris (One click apk method)
    Root Method 2 (Unrevoked): Root the Droid Eris (Unrevoked Method)
    1. Unzip android sdk to a place where you can find it (the shorter the directory name the better as you will soon see. Mine is saved in C:\android
    Also unzip the telephony.db into a folder where you can find it. Mine is saved in C:\android
    2. In windows xp click start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. In Vista or windows 7 click start and type cmd in the search and hit enter.
    3. Navigate to the folder where you unzipped the Android SDK. If you are not familiar with the command prompt, I will make a list of the commands I enter in blue. The rest you see will be the text that will be generated by the command prompt: CD the directory of adb!!! ex. type cd hit space the drag the tools folder into cmd window. now you can adb push/adb pull etc.

    4. Type the Following command
    C:\android\tools>adb root
    * daemon started successfully *
    adbd is running as root

    If you have problems obtaining root (it says it's not available in a production build or whatever), try using root explorer and moving these files over from an SDCard. Remember to make the folders read write)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5. Send the Modified telephony.db to the phone with the following command (keep in mind that you will need to substitute the directory I am using for the one where your telephony.db file is located

    C:\android\tools> adb push c:\android\telephony.db /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db
    85 KB/s (4096 bytes in 0.046s)

    6. Unplug your Phone and hold the power button to turn it off. Turn it back on and there you go!


    Some roms aren't allowing the telephony.db to work giving 245kb/s or any other like 130kb/s.

    My advice is if you get one to work, do a Nandroid back up, so you will always have a working web browser and MMS.

    ---end---

    This is not really a question I need answered, I'm just asking to help anyone who's stuck on this.

    Wouldn't you need to enter your MIN (Programming Number) in QPST also, or do OTAP (*228) before starting step 2, also? This tutorial only mentions our 10 Digit Cricket number (the MDN).

    I'm surprised no one noticed this until now. It was messed up for the Hero tutorial which is almost a copy of this.

    Thanks. The QPST tutorial with pics should supplement the instructions already provided here.

    ADB won't recognize my eris anymore (the data port is a bit messed up).. Do I have to CHMOD u2nl and autostart.sh?

    absolutely yes, chmod sets file permissions. Without doing so, there is no means to execute them.

    You could just install GreenK45 from the link in my signature, or get the apk from the thread. *shameless plug*

    Anyway, yes, you could use a terminal emulator on the device, that will work as well.

    I'm unable to complete step one. When i dial ##3424# it says, "Welcome to Verizon Wireless, we're unable to authenticate you phone. If you continue to have problems dial #8899 from your wireless phone.

    I've searched and searched and come to no avail. I have a fully unlocked Droid Eris and trying to do the full flash from verizon to cricket. I've done all of the steps for the flash for talk and text and still don't have any type of talk/text. I have downloaded QPST and am able to view my phone via QPST. I am also able to edit and modify the settings, as I have done, and am still stuck. I've downloaded the .prl for roaming and still have gotten nowhere. Please help!!!!
