Temporarily Boot to Stock ICS on Epic 4G Touch From CM9

While running CyanogenMod on a CDMA device has many advantages, one glaring disadvantage is the ability to update your PRL (Preferred Roaming List) or data profile, which are only available via stock ROMs. Often times if you need to run a GPS fix or update your PRL, you need to backup your CM9 install, restore to a previous stock ROM, do the ROM dance, run the desired process, dance a jig, restore to CM9 install, and hope for the best. Well now you don’t, thanks to the Epic Touch CM team.

The Epic Touch CM team has put together a nice temporary ROM which boots the FF18 stock firmware from the /EMMC partition on the Samsung Epic 4G Touch without changing your current ROM. This temporary ROM allows you to do the following, and more:

  • Update Profile
  • Update PRL
  • Sprint Activation
  • Dial codes and diagnostic mode

XDA Senior Member slick_rick has put together the discussion for this process, so visit the original thread and give it a shot.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown.
