Samsung SPH L600 Galaxy Mega Sprint

Phone Pre-Setup
  • Install Drivers for Samsung Galaxy Mega
  • If the device is on the Android 4.2.2 OS or higher, you may be required to get the SPC/ MSL for the device before flashing. Since the update from 4.1.2, Houdini will not be able to automatically unlock the device without you manually inputting the SPC/MSL during the flash. In most cases, customers may call Sprint to get the SPC/MSL for the device. Alternately, a handful of applications can be found online that may assist with getting the SPC/MSL as well. (Please note the app, "Get My MSL" will only work on Android 4.1.2 devices.)
