HTC EVO 4G not Sending/Receiving MMS Messages :(


HTC Sense default messaging unable to send or receive MMS messages 😦  Every time I try to send an MMS, I eventually receive the error message: “generic network failure”.

My Setup:

Phone:  Sprint HTC EVO 4G

OS:  Fresh Evo 4.2 ( by flipz


As usual, I cannot take credit for my ingenious solutions 😉  You can find the source of my plagiarized solution here.

Note:  You DO NOT need the be rooted for this solution.  However, if you’re not rooted, you should be ;P

  1. Download “APN Backup & Restore” from the Market
  2. Use the App, and first run Backup APNs
    • APN BackRestore
  3. Name the file: APN-Broken.xml
  4. Connect your phone to your computer as “disk drive”, using notepad open APN-Broken.xml, and correct the code to match:
    • <?xml version=’1.0′ encoding=’UTF-8′ standalone=’yes’ ?>
      <apns count=”1″>
      <apn name=”Production” numeric=”00000″ mcc=”000″ mnc=”00″ apn=”1” user=”null” server=”null” password=”null” proxy=”null” port=”null” mmsproxy=”null” mmsport=”null” mmsprotocol=”2.0″ mmsc=”” type=”mms” />
  5. Save your changes as APN-Fixed.xml
  6. Disconnect your phone from your PC, and run APN Backup & Restore again
  7. Now run Restore APNs
    • APN BackRestore02
  8. Choose APN-Fixed.xml to apply it
  9. Perform a Reboot on your phone, and you’re all set.

Gnome Icons in the Unity Bar


I installed Cryptkeeper on my Ubuntu 11.04, but when I run it, the only way to manage it is through the icon it places in the top desktop bar, or Panel.  You know that top desktop bar that used to hold my wonderful applet icons, yeah this one:

Unity Desktop


Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit (Natty Narwhal)

Asus G73JW-A1 (RoG)


So if you want to see your icons in the top bar again, run this command from the Terminal, and once you’re done log out and back in:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"

End of Line.
