This guide is for educational purposes only and is intended as such. It is also a guide to repair an ESN that was damaged during a failed flash. The FCC regulates the usage and assigning of ESN's and modifying them in any way is a felony. The owners/mods/members of this site take no responsibility for the usage of this guide.

Now that we have that out of the way we can get on with the guide.


If you have ever flashed any phone you realized the danger and heartache involved with a failed flash and on the GSM side you know what "blank neptune" means. Well through my experience of flashing hundreds of phones a week there is a risk of losing or corrupting some data. One of the worst things to me is have the flash go 100% Complete and bam.....ESN failed to rewrite (primarily with Audiovox's on my end) But never fear there is a solution finally. I have been drastically testing various software and hardware to repair these ESN's to their original state.( thats correct I am not changing them I am only rewriting them to be back to normal instead of 00000000000)

This requires a few programs and many cables, I currently use CDMA Uni-Box which comes with all appropriate cables.
I also have purchased the software called CDMA Workshop.

You may be able to locate a copy of the software via google.

You will also need QPST to place your phone into Modem mode.

First connect your phone via USB or through your CDMA Box and open QPST.

Once the Phone is detected and connected close QPST and open CDMA Workshop

Change the port to the current port the phone is on.

Click connect.

Then place the phone into DM, there are three keys listed depending on your phone Model IE: QCDM for Moto, LGDM for LG phones.

Then click read.

You will now notice on the left hand side of the screen it will display your phone information including Software info, the date it was compiled and the date it was released, your current ESN, Lock Code and current chip sets.

Now if you click the security tab you can use this screen to read your SPC, User lock code and... to also repair your esn.


Happy Modding.
