Sprint conversion FAQ


Dear customers,

This guide will explain you how to use the new "A9 Sprint" conversion feature:

WARNING! This procedure will erase your data. We are not responsible for any damage made to the phone
during this process! Please make it at your own risk!

1. Set your phone to S-OFF and CID to 11111111
2. Connect XTC 2 Clip to your PC, run XTC 2 Tool and open "Special unlock / IMEI" tab.
3. Select "A9 / A9 Sprint" and check the "Convert Sprint A9 to European A9" checkbox
4. Press "Copy files"
5. Follow the "Step 2." instructions as usual (insert XTC 2 Clip into A9 and reboot to FTM).
6. Now flash this flash file #458831 (download from our support site)
7. Do master reset
8. Done. Wait for the phone to boot up.

WARNING! To receive OTA you should change CID to original, for example BS__US001

Can the conversion go in the other direction, or be reversed?

We didn't try to convert Sprint M9 yet, because as far as we know there is no problem with using M9 after unlock anywhere in the world.

Yes, no problem with getting phone service etc. But the Sprint firmware is not very GSM friendly. An option to change to GSM firmware would be amazing.

I tried the process above for the A9 (with BS_US001 M9 firmware) and after the install the baseband is lost and so is the IMEI. This is easily restored with Sprint firmware though.

Hope that helps and looks forward to further development

Thanks

Hello,

After the conversion the phone will behave like normal, so you should be able to receive & install OTA.

S-OFF does not usually prevent from receiving OTA, so no need to set S-ON.

After conversion your phone become a fully European, so I don't know why you must get any messages like "different ROM version", can you provide an exact message or screenshot ?

From our point of view after conversion you should be able to get and install OTA with no problem.
