Here is the easy way to update to MA6 if rooted.

Go to http://goo.im/devs/f..._LJ7_to_MA6.zip and download the file.

Put the zip on your EXTERNAL SD CARD!

Make sure you have the latest CWM on your phone. If you DO NOT know what i'm talking about than DO NOT attempt this up date with this process. Lastest CWM is v6.0.1.2.

1.Flash the SPH-L710_LJ7_to_MA6.zip in CWM.

2.Go to Wipe cache directory.

3.Go to Advanced and wipe the dalvik cache.

After the process has finished scroll to Reboot Phone.

CWM is going to ask you two questions.

1.CWM will say that stock recovery has been chosen, do you want to ignore that change, keeping CWM. Select YES

2.CWM will then say that root might be removed, do you want to fix this? Select YES

After the phone reboots it will show updating andriod. Let it finish its thing and you know should have MA6 and still be rooted.

If for any reason you do not understand these directions or do not have any idea what CWM is or how to install it DO NOT ATTEMPT this. I am not responsable if you brick your phone.

Robert or a MOD please feel free to remove this if you think it should not be here.

Just trying to give some help.

This is what you should have after you done with the update.

I got the update this morning... and yes, damnit, it seems to have removed or relocated the prl write ability.

 

Digiblur, any idea if this feature is hidden elsewhere now or if a code on the dialer maybe exists to force it? I am mildly familiar with the non samsung method but not nearly as fond

I will have an update soon like I have done for the Note2 that removes the code prompt 100% when pressing ##DEBUG#. Thinking of changing mine to #9# to make it easy ;)

FInally got the ota update this morning. Been checking every day.

 

Edit: Had a second update after the first one finished. Screen said this one was 3.0 MB. Not sure on the first one.

Is there any way to make the update message go away? I received the update, but don't want to lose the prl writing ability. It's annoying to get the update message so many times during the day.

Obnoxious, ain't it? It was driving me bonkers too until I activated my new Optimus G this evening.

I'm pretty sure if I root the phone it'll be no big deal - I'm just too lazy. Let me know your impressions of the Optimus G after a few days.

If anyone wants me to do a ROM for the S3 like I did for the Note2 please chime in. I might be able to do it in the blind without the device but if anyone has one I could borrow for a couple of weeks it would help out quite a bit. Or maybe even purchase if the price was right. We could call it the S4GRU S3 ROM ;)

    • Good catch! I meant 115932/119932. Edited my original post I've noticed the same thing lately and have just assumed that they're skipping it now because they're finally able to deploy mmWave small cells.
    • At some point over the weekend, T-Mobile bumped the Omaha metro from 100+40 to 100+90 of n41! That's a pretty large increase from what we had just a few weeks ago when we were sitting at 80+40Mhz. Out of curiosity, tested a site on my way to work and pulled 1.4Gpbs. That's the fastest I've ever gotten on T-Mobile! For those that know Omaha, this was on Dodge street in Midtown so not exactly a quiet area!
    • Did you mean a different site? eNB ID 112039 has been around for years. Streetview even has it with C-band back in 2022 - https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7303042,-73.9610924,3a,24.1y,18.03h,109.66t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1s2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g!2e0!5s20220201T000000!6shttps:%2F%2Fstreetviewpixels-pa.googleapis.com%2Fv1%2Fthumbnail%3Fpanoid%3D2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.share%26w%3D900%26h%3D600%26yaw%3D18.027734930682684%26pitch%3D-19.664180274382204%26thumbfov%3D90!7i16384!8i8192?coh=205410&entry=ttu Meanwhile, Verizon's eNB 84484 in Fort Greene has been updated to include C-band and CBRS, but not mmWave. I've seen this a few times now on updated Verizon sites where it's just the CBRS antenna on its own, not in a shroud and without mmWave. Odd.
    • Drove out into the country today.  Dish stuck to my phone like glue. At least -120 rsrp. Likely only good for phone calls (should have tested.) It then switched to T-Mobile. Getting back on Dish was another issue. I am used to dragging out coverage so I expected a few miles, but had to drive at least 10 miles towards a Dish site. Airplane mode, which worked for Sprint, did nothing. Rebooting did nothing. Finally got it to change over about 2 miles from the site by manually setting the carrier to Dish then it had great reception. Sprint used to have a 15 minute timeout but I did not have the patience today.  Previously I did a speed test on Dish out in the country at the edge of Dish coverage. My speeds were 2g variety. Dish has really overclocked some of these sites. Seen rssp readings in the 50s. Would have called them boomer sites with Sprint but much  more common with Dish.
