    Default Galaxy S3: MSL code

    I was going to edit a few things and i forgot what my code was so i did the "getprop ril.MSL" deal and the different MSL getting apps and kept getting blanks/errors. Did some googleing and from my understanding i need to downgrade my ROM to get it. Not to thrilled about that. So is there no way to get my MSL on stock 4.1.2 ROM without downgrading?

    How about call Sprint and ask for it? That always works for me.

    No there is no way to get your msl on 4.1.2 without downgrading. Also when you call sprint refer to it as your "6 digit code", the carriers don't like it when you use the term msl for some reason.

    There is a app in the playstore called getmymsl. Load it on your phone, go to the screen that you use to punch in your msl, punch in 222222, you will get wrong msl error and that is okay, run getmymsl and it should show you your msl#.

    Ps I have used it both on the Sprint GS3 and Note 2 and it works.

    That doesn't work on the latest update.

    What is the "screen where you punch in your msl"?
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Yeah goto the dialer. Punch in ##3282#, it will bring you to a menu, select edit, for msl type 222222 because it will ask you for the code and you will get a error, hit the home button to get out and run getmymsl, bottom left hit getmymsl button in the app and it will bring up the 6 digit msl.

    Are you ABSOLUTELY sure you are on 4. 1.2? Because following your instructions to a T doesn't work for me and its been said many times elsewhere here and on XDA that nothing works to get MSL unless you down grade. My version of Getmymsl is 1.3. Could you be running a custom ROM (the stock update is MD4)?

    Um you posted this is the sprint s3 forum. The i900 is not the sprint s3's model number and the latest update for the sprint s3 is md4 of which this method does not work.

    Yes you are correct, but you have the wrong phone for this forum. We all have the L710 phone. Getmymsl does not work for our phones.

    Edit...oops somebody else just posted the same thing.

    But only if you downgrade from the last two updates just like Gollum18 said.

    We never mentioned 4.2.2. That would be a custom ROM. Maybe it works on that but it certainly does not work on the current stock ROM 4.1.2 (on the Sprint S3), directions or not...without downgrading.
