    I installed it on my lg p505 and the APNs do not save.

    • techgeekal

      @NobleRMalikAli manually make an apn and then see how it goes

      • NobleRMalikAli

        @techgeekal I found a file on the internet called for cyanogenmod 10. I don’t have the link here. It can be googled. That worked. I would still like to know how to manually make an APN file for future reference. I did consider that. I didn’t find anything on the net that explains what file is used and what parameters are needed.

    P506, T-Mobile. Installs fine, but not mobile network. Phone number is blank and everything related to the mobile network is unknown. Any ideas? Everything works again after I restore from backup, but I’d like to get it working.

    • Techgeekal
