HOWTO: To change 700p ESN without serial cable/bitpim/CRC patch (need hotsync cable)
To change the ESN without using bitpim/QPST/CRC changing etc, just backup your nv back up, then search your ESN hex (4 char) in REVERSE order ie: if your ESN HEX is "A0B1C2D3", then search for "D3C2B1A0", it should be around the 0000EFXX area.
KEEP BACKUPS OF CDMA NV DATA.pdb!!!. you also will need to update your PRL again.
IMPORTANT: Then you have to erase the NV NVRAM.
Install the Treo 650 bootloader drivers,
##UPST to boot into the color screen (remove the sd card first)
plug in hotsync cable
download mtty 1.42, and open the usb port.
then type "cdmar bl usb"
then type "nverase"
after done take out battery to reset phone.
then restore your "Repaired ESN" with the cdmaupdater...
then reload prl with *2280x
YOU MUST do the NVERASE or else your new ESN will not be written. The cdmaupdater checks first if the NV is all FF, (due to the nverase), if not it will not write the new ESN.
I dont know? Cricket, Boost Mobile and Metro PCS are all offering unlimited talk text and web from $35-50 in my area. I wouldnt realy care if it was illigal if I were able to use my Treo On there networks.
but is it really illegal if im paiying for the phones and service. I would only be useing it on a Treo witch I have also paid for.
So if im paying for the service and the phones. Everyones getting there $$BREAD$$...whats the problem?
