    I saw that your data connection shows 3g while the Juno is a 1xRTT phone. Is the phone stuck on 3g or did you actually pull out 3g out of a 1xRTT donor?

    My guess would be that it only knows 4G and 3G icons? it's really not my idea to use the 1xRTT data donor phones.

    Maybe in the future I will get another one and try a 3G donor (like ZTE Warp, HTC EVO Design 4G, LG Marquee, Samsung Replenish, Samsung Transform Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Prevail.)

    I've noticed the 3G indicator on Sprint Android phones is a lie, as well. I'm actually surprised no one has made a big stink about it.

    Going into the ##debug# menu and checking AAA authentication is the best way to tell if you're really on EVDO.

    Does this affect shrinkage?

    Good to know and have. Btw is this your torrent in your signature fifiknw? **Seeding**

    Flashing is pretty simple. Just need time and patience with a little bit of knowledge! I flashed a couple smartphones back in the day without bricking.

    Yes sir. I will be updating it today with the s3 toolkit instead of the rooting files.

    You can use everything in that post to phone any or most phones. But sorry I do not have a copy of a s2 toolkit, but the drivers will all the same.

    Damn now I'm even more torn. I've been trying to decide between the HTC EVO 4G LTE and the Samsung Galaxy S III on boost to replace my BB. whatever I wind up going with though I want Cyanogenmod on it.

    Hey guys sorry for being such a noob but i have been wanting to flash over my Sprint S3 to Boost Mobile. Every thread I have seen has said how to do the process but not how to get the donor files. Now I currently have a Sanyo Incognito and from my understanding that is the best to use as a donor phone. I would like to know how to get all the donor info from it.

    Google "chris41g epic"

    He has info for the OG Epic and the Epic Touch. I would imagine the S3 is similar, but I've never done it so YMMV.
