Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help to you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q Hi Guys I just bought a Spring Evo 4G that has Gingerbread 2.3 and Cyanagen Mod 7.03. Will I be able to activate this w/ Sprint? The seller says it is a clean ESN. Or will I have to restore this (how?) to activate it?
Thanks for the help!!

A As long as the esn is clean, you should be fine. The things needed to activate a phone on your account are the imei, min, mdn, etc. These are independent of the rom.

Interview

We arrive to the final part of this interview with XDA member and retired moderator pof. In case you missed them, here are the links for part 1 and part 2 of this interview.

orb3000: What’s your opinion of overall Android security?
