How to Retrieve Your MSL Without MSL Reader on Android

Nowadays, most applications, processes and hacks for Android are automated, easy to use, and virtually fool proof. Needless to say that we are happy about it, but what if we ever needed a more in depth look or we saw ourselves in a situation where 1-touch apps would no longer do the trick? While this guide is a bit old (in internet time scale), we thought it would make sense for people to know what they would need to do if they ever needed to retrieve their MSL, but couldn’t do it because the phone got locked again. XDA member techwerkz has posted a very nice step by step tutorial on how to obtain the MSL code for your EVO, rooted or not. The guide involves playing with a program called CDMA Workshop, a program that can mess your device up permanently if not used properly as it plays with the contents of the NV files present in the Radio roms.

The guide is well written and really easy to follow, but again, this is mostly for instructional purposes as there are other ways available to perform this task (assuming the device is rooted).

There is an app in the market called MSL Reader that successfully found my MSL. It does require root access, my method will still work for phones that are not rooted. Thanks flexgrip for pointing this out, and mmastrac for the hard work developing the app.

You can find more information in the application thread.

While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
