    Default (HOWTO) PRL 61805 (Sprint)

    Hey guys! I just got the new PRL 61805 the other day and figured I would post it here if you haven't got it yet. This is a Sprint PRL so if you are on Boost mobile then use at your own risk.. it shouldn't do any damage except put more roaming minutes on your bill if your using anything but sprint. But still, I'm not responsible for any damage to anyone's phone for this even though its pretty hard to brick a phone from a prl update .

    You can install with QPST or CDMA Workshop.

    Either way, you need your MSL. This is very easy.

    1. Download Terminal Emulator from Google Play (market).
    2. Type "su" and press enter (un-needed if root) a "$" should appear.
    3. Type "getprop ril.MSL" (case sensitive) and push enter.
    4. Your 6 digit MSL code will appear. Write it down and save it for later.

    OR
