Nice site!  ?  How can I get rid of the system update notice?  Seems like it might have been covered but I can't figure it out...G900P Domestic Sim Unlocked

You can delete this folder /system/priv-app/SprinDM

Any root file browser will let you do this. We will be posting an update soon with a debranding menu where you can take care of that and more with the press of a button though :)

:D

Can I use the unlock app - given that I purchased my unlock prior to completion or availability of the app itself - or would I need to do a new purchase?

HI, did you unlock with a earlier version of our app? Or long ago over remote connection?

Let me know

I rooted and unlocked my g9000p Sprint S5 and had data working for one day. I don't know if did something by mistake, but now for some reason i have lost data. My carrier is Cricket and i have all APN settings correct, but regardless of what i do i can only get phone calls and send texts. Can anyone please help me? Also does it matter if I use Philz Recovery when flashing stock roms? I tried reflashing the stock rom but all i get is flash aborted.

Thanks in advance...as well as for this wonderful service!

Hi, for flashing Stock roms you will use Odin3, tar.md5 go in AP slot and the phone needs to be connected in download mode.

Did anything change from when you had working data to when it stopped working?

Any settings change or rom flashed right before it stopped?

That's how I originally flashed it, but then I flashed fusion rom. I had data, then I flashed Moar 7.0 and that's when I lost data.

Also I went into mobile networks and there are 2 options att and t-mobile. I chose att and then 4 more sprint apns are automatically added for some reason.

Ah it does sound like a issue of the custom rom you are using.

You should go back to Official and check if you data is now working ;)
