How To Flash a Sprint LG Optimus S to Cricket ROM

(1) Install the drivers for your device.
(2) Connect to CDMA workshop and read SPC (LG method), then write to 000000.
(3) Write the PRL of your choice.
(4) Write your MDN and MIN

If everything was done properly you will now have Talk and Text, these settings should stick
without any problem. But if something weird happens just do it again.

For the PRL I suggest trying chrisngrod’s new Cricket/Sprint Hybrid PRL, since reportedly you
may be able to use talk and text in areas where flashed phones normally do not pick up. This
PRL must be written with QPST, as of yet it doesn’t work with CDMA workshop.
2. Obtaining Root and Flashing Custom Recovery
If you know what are you doing, or don’t want to bother with custom ROM’s you can skip this part.
If you decide not to use the Cricket ROM by Error420 you will need to install the Indulge’s MMS.apk,
push telephony.db, and possibly adjust the APNs.

(1) Use wifi to connect to market and download your favourite file explorer

Two venomous vipers vanish from Swedish zoo

Two venomous vipers vanish from Swedish zoo

Staff at the Djurparken Zoo in Helsingborg think that two missing snakes have been stolen by a snake expert intending to sell the rare species.

“They came here some time between Monday night and Tuesday morning. They took one yellow snake, and one that was striped green,” Mats Hafström, the owner of the zoo, told The Local.

IN PICTURES: Take a closer look at the snakes

The thieves broke down the door and through the terrarium, and even into the private offices of the zoo, in what Hafström believes was an attempt to find more snakes to pinch.

“We had 15 that were born here in July, and we only left two out on show. They must have been looking for the other 13,” he said. “It’s extremely rare that pit vipers are born in captivity.”

Hafström hopes the media attention will mean the thieves have trouble selling the pair of pit vipers. He added that the public has no need for concern, even though the snakes are highly venomous.

“There’s no way they’ll let the snakes loose, they’re too valuable. And even if they did, the snakes wouldn’t survive the cold here. No one has anything to worry about.”

The police have launched an investigation.

The pit viper, also known as the Trimeresurus, is nicknamed the 100 pace snake as those bitten by it are said to only manage 100 steps before dropping dead. It is mostly found in the wild in southern Asia, and eats rodents and birds.
