    How To: Web, apps, gps, and MMS on Motorola Droid

    This is a modified version if the Cricket tutorial. Big thanks to SyZtyM for gathering all the info.

    Please note: I am NOT the sole creator of this and credit does not go to me alone for creating this solution. There are a large number of contributors that all played a part in getting this up and going.

    Special thanks and credit should go to
    gijoey1980
    Tracphonejunkie
    whiterabittorg
    To0
    Insaincain (For the nv items. You are a legend, and credit is due where credit is due)
    Admin (For all sites. PERIOD)
    tzBIGWORM (for his youtube video)
    Leviuqse (for apn settings)
    Myself and many others.
    If you were involved and I didn't mention you please let me know and I will add your name to the list


    If anyone notices a step I may have missed please let me know so I may edit the tutorial, thanks.

    I do not claim responsibility if you damage your phone, proceed at your own risk.


    You will need:
    -CDMA WS 3.5 (2.7 will work) GOOGLE
    -Android SDK http://rapidshare.com/files/38466371...04-windows.zip
    -Root Explorer (optional) Android Market
    -Hardware Virtual Serial Port http://rapidshare.com/files/38466156...ngle_3-1-0.exe
    -Motorola A855 USB drivers http://rapidshare.com/files/38465759..._bit_4.2.0.zip (32bit Drivers)
    -Autostart.sh and U2nl (thanks to whiterabbit). Download precompiled arm binary. Save autostart.sh and U2nl in C:\android\tools\
    http://www.whiterabbit.org/android/
    -Autostart (Root) from Market
    -NV Items from whiterabbit.org
    First step is to make sure you have the drivers installed on your computer, and you also need to have Android SDK installed on your computer.
    You will need to root the phone, key here is to make sure the kernel you load supports iptables.

    Root and ROM: Please Root and flash a ROM before you start this tutorial. If you flash a ROM after you may lose your settings. I recommend Adamz or Bugless Beast because I have confirmed these settings to work on these ROMs.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bug...2-1-ese81.html


    Now that your Droid is Rooted and has a custom ROM, let’s get started.

    NV Items:
    Go to http://www.whiterabbit.org/android/, enter your10digit#@mymetropcs.com as the login string, click 2.7 or 3.5 depending on which version of CDMS WS you have then click generate. It should download a text file. These are your NV items.

    Hold down “T” on the keypad and power on phone.

    Plug into computer and open HW Virtual Serial Port

    In HWVS set the IP address to 192.168.16.2 and the port to 11008, choose the com port you wish to use and click Create COM. (For this tutorial we will use COM5)

    Open CDMA WS and connect to COM5.

    On security tab send SPC 000000.

    Go to “Memory” tab and click write under NV items, find the downloaded NV items and select them.

    It should then say NV items were successfully written to phone.

    Go to Main tab and click mode reset.

    You can now close HWVS and CDMA WS and open cmd.exe on your computer.

    Once phone reboots go to the market using WI-FI and download and install Autostart (Root).

    Open the Voice Dialer on the phone and say “Open APNs” and click open.

    Click on the Verizon APN and edit everything to match below. If there are no APN’s create a new one:
    Name: metropcs
    APN: internet
    proxy: wap.metropcs.net:3128
    port: 3128
    username: 10digit#@mymetropcs.com
    password: metropcs
    server: wap.metropcs.net
    mmsc: http://mms.metropcs.net:3128/mmsc
    mms proxy: wap.metropcs.net
    mms port: 3128
    mmc: 310
    mnc: 004
    auth type: not set
    apn type: not set
    Or:
    Name: Metro
    APN: internet
    Proxy: wap.metropcs.net
    Port: 3128
    Username: [email protected]
    Password: metropcs
    Server: *
    MMSC: http://mms.metropcs.net:3128/mmsc
    MMS Proxy: (nothing)
    MMS Port: (nothing)
    MMC: 310
    MNC: 004
    Auth Type: (nothing)
    APN Type: (nothing)
    I have tested both settings and both are confirmed working.

    Now click the menu button and click Save.



    Before starting the next step make sure you have the u2nl file and autostart.sh in this folder c:/android/tools

    Now go to the command prompt on your pc and type the following commands:
    cd c:\android\tools
    adb remount
    adb push c:\android\tools\u2nl /system/bin/u2nl
    adb push c:\ android\tools\autostart.sh /data/opt/autostart.sh
    Now:
    adb shell
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/u2nl
    chmod 0755 /data/opt/autostart.sh
    reboot

    If you are having trouble with adb try this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q55g7...os=7LHqeHzqzxY
    -If there is no opt folder to paste autostart.sh in, create one.
    -If it does not let you paste u2nl in /system/bin click Mount R/W


    Now, once your phone has rebooted, you should have working web, app, gps, and mms. If you don’t go back and check all the steps to insure you did everything exactly right.

    At this current time you must have WI-FI disabled on boot for autostart.sh to run.

    It is from the cricket tut for the droid. I just modified it for metro. I gave credit to the original poster of the cricket tut for gathering the information and I made sure I left the special thanks part in tact and added a couple of people myself.

    I am VERY tired right now so there is a chance i forgot somebody

    thanks.

    While setting up the APN, Auth Type needs to be set to none, then MMS should work.

    I was thinking about that but honestly I don't see a way to edit the op. I don't know if it's the new layout or if i'm just missing something...

    The only way to edit the OP now is to get the help of a Mod. Hit up 3ViL once you have the edits ready. The way I did the pics on the Eris guide is to get screenshots with ShootMe (Screen Grabber) and then upload the pics to a photobucket.com account. Finally, use IMG code tags that photobucket provides in my post.
    Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than trolls in the deep subforums.
