    Root Required

    It is also Recommended that you Backup your "EFS" Partition before making a changes. Thanks for the Reminder -> grenefroggie

    1) Change the contents of PLEASE NOTE IN PICTURE ONE THE DIRECTORY IS efs/carrier/HiddenMenu > Text Editor > Change the OFF to ON
    2) Save the Changes
    3) Reboot

    After device has Rebooted test to ensure command went through properly...

    4) Try it out! Go to the phone dialer and enter *#06# (show MEID) as a test.

    WARNING THESE COMMANDS MAY ALTER THE SETTINGS OF YOUR DEVICE, CAN MAKE YOUR DEVICE FUNCTION IMPROPERLY DO NOT MAKE CHANGES TO SETTINGS IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHAT THE OUTCOME WILL BE.

    commit settings in hidden menu

    After I complete changes I don't see the option to commit the changes to settings. It should pop up when you press the menu button but nothing comes up, am I missing something here or are these menus locked further to the point where you cant even make changes and save them

    Let's go through the steps as I'm going through several motions.

    1) Go to Root Explorer find efs/then find carrier/ then find HiddenMenu and open the file> look for "OFF" > Change to "ON". Save the changes. Exit, Exit, Exit, Exit, Exit, Reboot, or Battey Pull, Put Battery Back in Play with the codes.

    ALL CODES HAVE BEEN UPDATED. Please post any other known codes, as these have changed with the addition of SIM cards. Just be carefully what you try, as GSM can be unlockable under Verizon's CDMA service.

    I can bring up the menus without a problem the thing is for example if you want to make a change it has to be saved or you have to commit to it if not the changes wont stick.
    Usually pushing the menu button after you have made a change pops up the prompt to save the change, it does is on other carriers without a problem.

    Just to make sure do you have Root, Root is required to make the command stick.

    Have root and enable the menus by editing file to on but there is no shortcut to save or commit the change.

    Just to make sure you are deleteing the word in CAPS "OFF" and replacing it with the word in CAPS without the "" "ON"

    I wanted to provide an update to this thread, as I have a more Komplete version available here. There are 2 new codes that I have added to the updated [TOOL] version of this. The first code provides a walk-through of how to enable LTE Band 4, for those of you that are unfamiliar LTE Band 4 is currently disabled by default (this was done through the past OTA to MJ7 as our device was sold original sold as enabled through the I9 version.) Anyhow, Band 4 is mostly available within Major Cities, like NYC, LA, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Philadelphia the list continues what it features is download speeds up to 150Mbps which our device can handle a download speed up to 150Mbps (a Samsung G4 can only as high as 100Mbps, we have an advantage/an iP5s can only handle 100Mbps-> hate to use Samsung and Apple in the same sentence) anyhow, see what I mean. If you live, work, commute, or go to a major city you could see some major speed running some Speedtests. This is just one code which is to enable Band 4. I have another which if you know you are in a Band 4 area you can force your device to go into Band 4, the thing is check it out, I've done some research there's great info, that help you get more familiar with some of the advantages we are going to start to see with Verizon's Band 4 LTE Network, so see ya here. :biggrin:
