Default MSL code

I'm putting this here, I think this is the most appropriate section.

Since I have an issue with carriers locking out phone features just to charge extra for them, I want to remind people that there is probably an easy way to unlock these features.

Look up 'MSL code HTC' on google, that should get you started on the right path.

NOTE: Most of the search results contain instructions for actions that may result in your phone becoming inoperative (bricked), and/or will possibly violate your contract. I do not take responsibility for anything you do of your own free will.

Maybe I could write something up about it, I didn't want to post too much information & have people screwing up their phones.

What is this "MSL Code" Is it like the Konami Code from Contra! j/k

I will be interested in reading and learning how other people have had success/failure with this. If you have some experience with this illdini, feel free to write something up about it here.

From what i've seen of android, your msl code is pretty irrelevant. It's not required to obtain root.

It does allow you to change your slot index so it makes the Hero actually able to answer a call.

That's why I said "pretty" and not "totally".

I used mine to disable the multimedia gateway to fix streaming apps with the leaked version of 2.1. That's the only thing i've ever seen it used for with android on the Moment.
