    How To: Fully Flash the Galaxy S3 to Metro (Sprint or Verizon)

    First off, both phones carry an IMEI, and not an esn being that they are 4G LTE. You will have to change the IMEI to an ESN that can be accepted by Metro PCS. This practice is currently in the gray area of legality and so I cannot assist you on how to do so.

    Once you have your galaxy S3 with an esn that can be accepted on Metro, you are ready to continue.

    First off, like any flash, you will need to activate the esn on your account. Once this is done then put the Galaxy S3 in diag mode. Do this by opening the dialer and typing *#7284#

    Now you have a readable port in CDMA workshop. *Note, if you do not have a legal copy of CDMA workshop this tutorial is not for you. CDMA Workshop is the software widely used by flashers everywhere and it is not free. There are no pirated copys available, and it is worth every penny to purchase. If you do not want to spend $100 to purchase the software then please take your phone to a local professional.

    Now on to the flash. If you are flashing the Verizon Version send SPC of "000000" if you are flashing the Sprint version send the Samsung 16 Digit Pass code. *Note: Unlike other Samsung phones sending the 16 digit passcode will unlock the phone for flashing but will not release the SPC. For a guide to find the SPC (necessary for setting up youtube and media) please see the end of this post.

    Next we will need to write "NV Only" to the phone and reset. Read your main tab, then navigate to R-UIM and select NV Only. If NV Only is already selected, select it again the write and reset. once phone has rebooted, on phone go to settings, more settings (under Wireless and Networks), Mobile Networks, Network mode, then select CDMA.

    Now connect your phone to CDMA Workshop and flash it the same way you would any phone. Talk Text and Internet will work flawlessly. As for Picture Mail, set it up the exact same way as the Galaxy S2.

    Your all set, Full flash on the S3...




    Finding your (Sprint) SPC.

    Universal RAM Method will find the SPC on this phone. However first we need to scan memory for readable addresses. Select the Memory tab, then select Scan Memory. this will take a while and may cause the phone to restart. Once it finishes, or fails after phone restarts, look at the notes. CDMA Workshop should list readable and unreadable areas. find the first readable area and jot down the address. Next it should list the unreadable area, jot down this address as well. if there are additional readable areas jot these down as well with the unreadable address too.

    Now select the security tab and under SPC select "Universal RAM Method from the drop down box. a pop up will come up and ask you for the start and end address. Enter the first start and end address you wrote down and hit ok. It should begin searching for 6 digit numerical strings in that address field, and give you the SPC. if the SPC is not given try the next string.



    If you like my tutorials, no need to donate. I do this for the community. If you asolutley feel the need to give up some cash, instead PM the moderator L0GiC4L 3ViL, And tell him want to donate. L0GiC4L moderates these forums for free and is often breaking phones due to his rowdy kids lol. If you like my work, I would love you to help buy him a new phone, he is always looking. And if your the type to PM me for help, I would be alot more inclined to help if Logi recommended you LOL.


    Thanks and good luck.

    Question: How would I go about getting any sort of signal without a Micro Sim in a US Cellular or Verizon version of the SGS3? Or is the Miro Sim necessary?

    Thanks for your help!

    I know this is sort of in the gray area matter but as far as the esn goes. repairing it to somthing completely different like a (hex)A10000.... or when adding the esn does it stay in the (dec)99000 but converted to hex to be added. The reason am asking is because i read on one of the cricket forums (i think) that all is needed is to drop the last number in the decimal format then converted to hex and metro will accept that. is that correct? Sorry for pushing on the gray area matter

    Hello,

    Thanks for the info/links. Quick question: Will that torrent work for my Samsung Fascinate as well? I am looking to root, then flash it to Metro PCS from Verizon.

    Also, any tips or advice is much appreciated, guess i would be classified as a 'newbie"

    Thanks

    Awesome, I appreciate it...i've never flashed a device, but I rooted mine a while back, with no issues. I will be attempting this in a couple hours. If there is anything you can tell me that would help me out, that would be great (like if i do anything different with the Fascinate, etc...)

    Thanks again!

    I sent you a pm but never got a response.

    Otherwise I'm wondering about the meid switch does it show your esn or your meid when you press *#06# I was able to get it to show my esn and have 3g working on verizon prepaid but calls are not going through.
