Hey all. Just got a droid x from a friend of mine i have already had it activated to metro an rooted. I currently have clockwork mod recovery, SU, Titanium backup (keyed). I am looking to get the MMS working but it seems that there are a few different ways about it. Not sure where to start, and this evening I was messing with phone and I noticed in the phone section under system updates it said that an update available is ready...4.5.60.en.US should i do this?? Thanks in advance

I wouldn't take any ota updates if you are already modded, what's the mms issue you are having?

You said you were looking to get mms working so it sound like you had a issue

Well with the flash from metro I only get text and phone...but I know from previous experience on an older phone with some rooting and such that it is possible...I just need to figure out which direction I need to be pointed in. I got this far. I can figure it out if I knew what info I need in order to get this darn phone to work right.

You need your carriers APN settings... You can then use root explorer or something similar to go in and change them. Depending on your firmware you might just be able to go in and change them manually under settings.

If you're gonna use root explorer the apn.xml should be under /system/etc -> apn-conf.xml

Well I installed and ran anycut....apn backup and restore.....and astro. I deleted the old Verizon apn and than manually set the metro information. Still nothing. I am gonna open up cdma and check phone settings. See if maaaaybe I missed something.

Use Titanium Backup to freeze the updater.

And clear your cache in stock recovery if you already downloaded the update... also just a shot in the dark but what happens if you download go SMS or handcent.... can you send MMS in those?

Ok updater is frozen...thx mate. I tried handcent and no go. It just sat there in sending status. Ok...let's c if we can start over.

My main issue after getting metro to flash my droid x over I do not have Mms or internet (non wifi). I have read here and on xda that it is possible to set this feature back up. I just don't know where to start. That is my main issue. I have set the apn for metro but it still hasn't worked. This is driving me friggin crazy....lol

Have you thought about just taking it to the carrier at this point and seeing what they say? Or at least call them and see if they can walk you through setup? If you have a data plan then there is no reason you shouldn't have working internet off wifi.

Seeing as how it is set for metropcs I don't think will happen. Hence the reason why I have to manually set these features

Running off wifi is not the issue. I know that mms and internet non wifi is my issue. There seems to be a workaround...as it were...to this issue. I can not sendil or rcv mms msgs. Plus I can not access internet without wifi access. These r my current issues.

As of right now I have tried pretty much all setups to get the mms and internet to work without using wifi. I have been unsuccessful in that attempt. Does anyone haveany ideas as to what my issue might be? Btw I have set the apns to the metropcs setting and my proxy has been adjusted as well..........totally lost at this point.

Well...finally got off my butt and got data working...kinda. I can get my work emails and such working but mms still seems to hate me. LOL I have the 1x symbol showing on my screen now. Yippee. Is it possible to get the 3g to work. I have a cpl apps that require that feature. Any help would be greatly appreciatef.

First off, it is okay to update the droidx when flashed, to stock or custom ROMs. You can even upgrade your radio file, just don't downgrade or you'll have to flash again.
And for MMS, I'd try the apn settings on cricketusers, but change things from cricket to metro or metropcs, not sure which it has to be.

Edit: and I heard to get 3G on metro you have to flash a certain prl, probably with cdma workshop but maybe you'll need QPST (if it's not hybrid then you can use cdma workshop.) And I can't remember what the prl is called but I'm sure you could find it pretty quickly with Google.
