      Yeah, well you know.
    Hi, my phone does not seem to connect properly. Every computer I use is asking for a MSM7X27 Driver. Does anyone know where I can find this or fix this problem? I have the StraightTalk Samsung Galaxy Precedent with FROYO.

    Are you using a Samsung USB cable? If your using a USB cable from a old phone or something it isn't going to work, It has to be a samsung USB cable (No idea why, but it makes a difference for some reason).

    No the website does not have a listing for this particular phone. I did however find a site that has the USB Driver for the phone. I copy the link from another forum site. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    No. I am using the usb cable that came with the phone. I will try installing the USB Driver onto a computer, when I do place it in USB Debugging mode. I was also thinking I might factory rest it and then try the method.

    Well another some soul searching and sitting at the computer for two and a half days frustrated...I found the correct Samsung Drivers for my phone. After that it was a wrap. I used the Odin method and I fell in love with my phone all over again. Thanks again, everyone was a big up to my success and I thank you all again.

    why wouldn't you just be able to put the original apk's back into the /system/apps folder and reboot. I havent found out yet if there is a download of the removed apk's yet. good luck .  they should be in the stock rom, if you would want to go through all that just to pull a few packages to install in this rom.

    "Samsung Android USB Diagnostic Serial Port" doesn't show up as an option under PORT when i click on it. Any ideas?


    Did you download and install the Samsung USB drivers?
    Are you using a Samsung USB cable(yes this makes a difference)?
    Is your phone in Debug mode?
    Did you connect the USB cable to your computer?
    Did you try a different USB port on your computer?
    Do you have any issues when connecting your phone as a mass storage device?


    This is the most common problem when people cant connect:
    Goto your Phones DialPad and dial ##8778# -> enter your MSL -> Select USB

    You have to do this step every time, and if USB is already selected then unselect it and reselect it. (You have to do this everytime)

    yes
    yes the one that came in the box
    with all the hacking i've been doin i leave it in debugging could this be it?
    Where else would i put it in my pants? lol jk but there are some ppl like that
    the other on on front is broken and the rear sometimes doesn't act right will report back when i try it
    used to with my virgintercept but no problems from the precedent or optimus


    edit: Depression sets in as the rear usb port also has no success and the msl select usb thing redid that. Kinda frustrating. Well guess i'll have to put up with sprint's HORRIBLE service lol. But any other suggestions?

    Precedent on AreaRom 2.0 GB
    U9 USB Cable that came with phone
    Windows XP Service Pack 4
    Drivers that were found from the odin root method back in whenever it was first discovered,  uninstalled recently to perform some crap on the virgintercept and then reinstalled ten minutes before      attempting
    CDMA workshop v3.8.0 found on link provided above
    Followed every step up to the click read then realized "wait diagnostic i didn't see that before"

    has anyone tried flashing prls on the arearom 2.1 release? I know I have the right drivers, as they have worked pre-arearom. In cdma workshop the only port option is usb modem. I have tried all usb ports, i unticked/reticked the usb button in 8778 menu... usb debugging is on. very frustrated. A similar post on android forums notes that they think the arearom 2.0 no longer has the diagnostic port stuff in it. Seriously? This bites hardcore b/c I like arearom 2.1 very much even with the kinks and even if my mms still doesn't work.

    Yeah, its been brought to my attention that the CDMA is no longer supported, and you cannot flash a prl on 2.0 and above.

    *** UPDATE ***
    Here is how to enable diagnostic mode in any of the AA51 GingerBread Releases
    All thanks to Koumajutsu

    To change your phone to DM mode for gingerbread
    __a)Dial ##7678#
    __b)Enter your MSL
    __c)Select DM and your phone should reboot in DM mode


    if you are running AreaRom v2.0 - 2.3 this is the new code to get to DM Mode,

    ##7678#

    still unsure how to get it into dm mode on CM7 there was a post about it somewhere on this forum and i will keep looking till i find it again.

    Alright. So I was searching the net a bit, and I found a script for scriptmanager to kind of forces the phone into DM mode. I can't really tell if it works or not, but the SAMSUNG Android USB Diagnostic Serial Port does show up in device manager. I can get CDMA Workshop to connect to the port, but when I click read it says "Failed... Phone does not answer".. I made sure the MSL was correct, and I am using the original cable. I'm going to attatch the script if anyone wants to play with it. lemme know if I have to gove credit to OP as I wil.



    edit: I am on CM7 on the precedent and I used getprop ril.MSL in the terminal to get my MSL
