    Oh and nvm, I changed the PRL easily. I took my sweet time but I did it. The only thing is that my internet is not going any faster than what I had before. It seems about the same. What is the difference between the 61007 and 60681 prl files? and how can i update to the lastest Sprint prl.

    1. Download both of these files and put them in the same location as the adb file.


    2 Open the terminal on your computer and enter the following
    a. adb push flash_image /data/local/
    b. adb shell
    c. su
    d. chmod 755 /data/local/flash_image
    e. /data/local/flash_image /sdcard/misc.img
    After this you should get a message that looks like this if you followed these directions correctly
    (usage: /data/local/flash_image partition.img )

    That is it your phone should not reset or anything and you will notice any obvious changes up front but it is recommended by Simon that you do this for it gives your phone HTC developer support. BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE A VIRGIN MOBILE USA WILDFIRE S.
    That misc image fix simmon nor you knew about or figured it out. So it would be nice to be credited for fixing it to begin with. In which the misc image was corrupted upon s-off via the old process. The for reference here is my gtalk log over it.

    I want to thank all of you for your help and hard work making the files, Just a quick note, it would be helpful if you added a "Date" next to the file so users won't keep asking when a new file is released. That way they can see when it's updated.

    The root of the sdcard is just the sdcard, not in another folder
    you can now unlock with htcdev.com and i reccomend that for noobs, as you cant flash anything that will totally brick your phone

    Hey, I am attempting to do the prl change. The steps are below for reference:


    I am OK up until step 10. I downloaded QPST to my computer and unzipped the 60681 to my computer as well. Well I go to device manager in windows 7, it has the unknown device labeled as "HTC Diag". When I go to update the driver, I assume that I need to look in the HTC DIAG files I downloaded. When I choose the Win 7 64 folder, the computer says it could not find the device driver. Any idea what I am doing wrong??

    Change PRL for faster Internet and better signal:
    You must download QPST, the PRL file, an app on the phone and be rooted:
    1) download this on the phone
    2) Open the app, and accept the superuser request.
    3) Tap read MSL
    4) Write down your MSL, you'll need it
    5) Go to the phone app, dial ##PORT# and hit on, then select.
    6) Enter your MSL and click OK
    7) Plug into a computer and download HTC diag drivers attached to this thread
    8) Go ahead and Google and download QPST
    9) Download and unzip the attached 60681.zip
    10) Now for fun, If anything confuses you, Google it.
    10B) go to the device manager, and select the unknown HTC device, then update driver. then browse>let me pick from a list>have disk>go to downloaded unzipped folder>choose the appropriate folder for your OS type>click the driver. Now open, next, yes, close. Right click HTC Modem, and go to Properties>Advanced port settings>see what your COM port is
    10C)Open QPST CONFIGURATION and select port. then add port, here you type the port your HTC MODEM is on.
    10D) Your phone will now show up, and you will click start client>service programing
    11) click your device and OK.
    12) DO EXACTLY AS I SAY NOW! NOTHING ELSE!!! NO LOOKING AROUND!!!!!!!
    13) Click read from phone, Give it the MSL you wrote down
    14) Now click save to file
    15) Click roam
    16) Click browse where it says file and in that you put the 60681.prl you downloaded AND unzipped
    17) Write to phone. THIS WILL RESTART THE PHONE, BOOT MAY TAKE A WHILE DON'T PANIC
    18) Enjoy faster Internet

    Hey I am trying to s off my HTC wildfire s and I have green all around to all forums and trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. Did you use the card that came with the phone? Where did you get the files you used?

    Are you gsm or cdma? If gsm you need to use the unlock tool or xtc clip. If cdma you can use the original guide a few thread down in this section. You may also use my tool to do it if you like. How ever keep in mind that you need the misc-image fixed after s-offing using the guide or tool by myself. This is due to the corruption of the misc-image. It won't hurt the phone at all, how ever with out knowing the carrier I can't give the right one to you.

    Or if you just want unlock you can use the htc unlock tool on it. How ever it isn't full s-off though allows flashing of roms. You can also use both together if you like. Though isn't needed at all, plus htc would now know you are unlocked as well if you went with the htc unlock tool.

    Used your guide to S-Off, Install Custom Recovery and Root my vm marvelc. The CM7 alpha works about 90 percent. The only problems I have are that the camera doesn't work, the camera app crashes the phone entirely, other camera apps also freeze phone. The second problem isn't really a problem, just a little thing about how to ROM detects the carrier. It seems confused and detects US Cellular as my carrier, oh well. Everything else works 100 percent! GREAT WORK!

    I'll keep trying to find more bugs.

    *bluetooth not working
    *wifi tethering not working
    *wrong carrier name
    *camera causes crash

    The phone is working great, but I have one issue (maybe it was there before) but not a big deal. When I take the phone's screen out of sleep mode the clock widget always starts off an hour behind and then corrects itself within a couple of seconds. I'm figuring it may have something to do with the PRL hack being set to a specific region other than upstate new york?? Any fix for this?

    I own an HTC Wildfire S and I recently rooted it using this threads instructions. Now that I have this root, I have seen things about Cyanogenmod 7.1 which interested me. I would like to know the simplest way to put this on my phone. Will it erase everything? Also, I would appreciate clockworkmod recovery being explained. I am somewhat new with Android rooting so thank you in advance(:
