Installation instructions for the Sprint-GPS enabled version of MGMaps on Motorola RAZR V3m.

rickgtx wrote:
Two ways to install on a V3m:
Arrow Easy way

I. Enable developer root. Do this only once!
On your PC go to https://developer.sprint.com/site/global/develop/activation_device/p_device_activation.jsp
Once you register you can click on the "Device/ESN Activation Go there now" link.
- 1. Click on the "Develop" Tab
- 2. (On the left) choose "Enabling device for activation"
- 3. Click "Device ESN Activation" (ESN is in HEX and case sensitive. Use A, B, etc). The ESN is on your box or behind the battery.
- 4. Add your phone
- 5. After your phone is added, under "actions" choose active.
II. You might need to wait a few hours until the activation occurs.
On your phone, go to http://wap.mgmaps.com and download the signed version for Sprint GPS.

Arrow Hard way
These instructions are for the Sprint RAZR V3m when downloading OTA fails. Other phones may differ.

Here are some detail instructions.

Atempting to download the Sprint GMaps OTA [over the air] with your Sprint V3m you may get "Error: This issue has been reported. Please try again later. 910 or 904" . I tried the Sprint internal browser, Opera Mini, and even http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/index.php once I had the files on my PC.

You need to download the xxx.jad and xxx.jar files listed in step 2 to your PC and copy them to your phone.

To do this, use BitPim or QPST to copy the files to your phone. You need P2K to find you MSL (P2K Offset 0055. Six digits) for QPST. You can get P2K and BitPim from http://hacktherazr.com/downloads.html and QPST from http://cellular-support.com/downloads/details.php?file=339.

Details of the location of the files and PERM: values are at http://www.sprintusers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=91504

1.) Install a version of GMaps that will install to set up the files and directories needed. The generic version works fine. See http://www.mgmaps.com/download.php. If you cannot download any version OTA, copy any xx.txt file that you have and rename it nn.txt for step 3. Make sure nn.txt does not exist.

2.) Download mgmaps_sprint.jad and mgmaps_sprint.jar to your PC.
http://wap.mgmaps.com/signed/mgmaps_sprint.jad
http://wap.mgmaps.com/signed/mgmaps_sprint.jar
-- or -- Unsigned versions:
http://wap.mgmaps.com/signed/mgmaps_sprintu.jad
http://wap.mgmaps.com/signed/mgmaps_sprint.jar

3.) With QPST or BitPim look in brew/mod/obione/jas/index/ for the GMaps nn.txt file. "NAME: Mobile GMaps" appears near the bottom of the file. In my case it was 18.txt. So I'll use 18 as the example, but use your nn in practice. So, I'm interested in these files:
- brew/mod/obione/jas/index/18.txt
- motorola/shared/jas/content/18.jad
- motorola/shared/jas/content/18.jar

4.) Change the line PERM: 1=0 to 1=1 in the 18.txt file.
PERM: 0=2,1=1,2=0,3=0,4=0,5=0
There is no _policy.txt on the Sprint V3m.

5.) Rename the xxx.jad and xxx.jar you downloaded in step 2 to 18.jad and 18.jar and copy to motorola/shared/jas/content replacing the GMAPS jad and jar you had installed in step 1.

Instructions for enabling developer root on Samsung m500, Sprint LG Fusic and other phones:

MichaelAtUVa wrote:
Hi Chris,

That didn't work, however I did get it to work. For thoose with the same issue this is how I did it.

Samsung m500 enabling developer root:

1) Call Sprint, *2, and ask for the MLS code for you phone. If they ask why just say you are developing code for the phone.

2) Once you have it type ##3282# into the phone, a menu will popup.
For codes for other phones go here...
http://www.phonenews.com/phones/index.php/Samsung_%28Sprint%29

3) Choose Advanced and then Edit.

5) Enter your MSL code.

6) Scroll down until you get to CERT (it was the second item for me.)

7) Hit the right direction to change it to ON.

Cool Then hit END, this will restart the phone and you will be good to go.

BTW, the GPS on the m500 worked without a problem with the latest version.

Thanks,
Michael

Install Guide for Sprint/Samsung phones with GPS:

jammin69 wrote:
I just got MGMaps installed on my Samsung A900 and it's working
beautifully. It took some digging through the forums to pull together the
necessary info. So, pulling together bits and pieces that were helpful,
thought I'd share my simple guide with newbies. Not sure this works on
all Samsung models phones, but I've been told it does.

INSTALLING GOOGLE MAPS ON SAMSUNG PHONES GPS

First, enable developer root (Thanks rickgtx)
1) From a web browser, go to https://developer.sprint.com/site/global/develop/activation_device/p_device_activation.jsp
2) You can login with your SprintPCS login ID.
3) Click on the "Device/ESN Activation Go there now" link.
4) Click on the "Develop" Tab
5) On the left side, choose "Enabling device for activation"
6) Click "Device ESN Activation" (ESN is in HEX and case sensitive.
Use A, B, etc). The ESN is on your box or behind the battery.
7) Add your phone
8) After your phone is added, under "actions" choose active.

You might need to wait a few hours until the activation occurs.

Second, activate root access on your phone (Thanks MichaelAtUVa):
1) Call Sprint, *2, and ask for the MSL code for you phone. If they ask why
just say you are developing code for the phone.
2) Once you have it type ##3282# into the phone, a menu will popup.
3) Choose Advanced and then Edit.
5) Enter your MSL code.
6) Scroll down until you get to CERT (it was the second item for me.)
7) Hit the right direction to change it to ON.
8) Then hit END, this will restart the phone

Note: Make sure you do the instructions above before going any further,
or else Gmaps won't have necessary root access when you install it.


Third, download Mobile GMaps for Sprint GPS.
1) Check the this website for the latest download URL for Sprint GPS:
http://wap.mgmaps.com/
2) To make it easier than typing on the phone, you can text the URL to
yourself from http://messaging.sprintpcs.com/textmessaging/compose
3) Download and install the app on your phone

Fourth, set your phone to use internal GPS device:
1) From the main menu on the phone, go to Settings --> Others --> Location.
If it's set to Off, then turn it On.
2) From the main menu on the phone, go to My Content --> Applications.
Highlight Mobile Gmaps and select Options --> Settings --> Location --> Always Allow
3) Run Google Maps on your phone, and type 96 shortcut to get to the
GPS option, then click Select Device. Then choose Internal and Save.

Then you're set. Go back to run the application and play with it. Here's
instructions on how to use the app: http://www.mgmaps.com/help.php

7. Extra steps I took.
-Get your msl code from a sprint rep. Just call *2 and tell the rep that you are trying to reset some features on your phone and you need the msl code. (it should be a 6 digit code)
-on your phone press ##3282#
-then go to Advanced, Edit, Then enter your 6 digit msl code, Dev. Certificate, then switch it to "on". Then exit out by selecting the "done" options. your phone should restart.

After you activate your developer account online, it may take a few hours for it to register with your phone.

Installation tips for Motorola IC902, from this thread:

The Shyte wrote:
If you're an IC902 user that stumbled across this thread - I'd like to share the things I tried while hoping to get MGMaps working on my handset. I don't have time to hunt down all the "how-to" links, but they're in the forum, and I found them through searching.

Install:
- Enabled the Developer Root Cert;
- Tried current, and several past Java versions of the app, including those for the E1000/A780;
- Loaded OTA, separate jar/jad's and zipped packages via the Sprint developer site
- Loaded with BitPim (had to find the content directory, since it's in a different place than the how-to, which is for another model);

Testing
When I installed a version that "took" the internal GPS setting, defined by me as a) allowing the phones permissions to be set (Always Allow) and b) successfully saved the Internal GPS setting in the app, I tried the following:

- Left the phone outside under an open sky for at least 10 minutes to acquire a fix. At most, I'd see the GPS activity icon showing blue over red , but no lat/long data or tracking.
- Tried with "Settings - Others - Location" off and on;
- Tried setting the Coordinate Format (thinking it might have to match with the GPS is sending it...)
- Power cycled the phone each time I removed a version and whenever I changed the location status or application permissions.
- Confirmed that MyCast and Pilot MyCast were sucessfully using the internal GPS to auto-select location on startup.

If you get MGMaps running on your IC902, please drop me a note - I usually think of a lot, but seldom think of everything. Smile

SteveG75 wrote:
For those with the newer Katana II SCP-6650, I installed this on my phone and it works perfectly with GPS.

1- Goto https://developer.sprint.com/site/global/home/l_home.jsp
2- You will have to create a login account and activate it from an e-mail account.
3- Once activated and logged in, goto https://developer.sprint.com/site/global/develop/activation_device/p_device_activation.jsp
4- At "Device/ESN Activation Go there now" (click the link that says "Go there now")
5- Add your phone (click "Add Device")
6- PCS Phone Number: (Add your mobile number)
7- ESN or MEID: (Add your HEX: number which is found on your box or behind the battery)
8- You should see your phone listed there now. Under "Actions" select Active and press Submit. Done. Someone else said you might need to wait a few hours until the activation occurs, mine worked immediately.
9- From a computer goto this website for the latest download link for Sprint GPS:
http://www.mgmaps.com/download.php
10- I then took that link and went to sprint.com and texted it to my phone (easier than having to type it on the phone.) The version at the moment as of 9-22-07 and worked for me is http://wap.mgmaps.com/mgmaps_sprint.jad
11- Download and Run
12- When asked, select Always Allow (you will be asked twice)
13- Find the GPS option and choose Internal and Save.
