You should not do this manually, the chance of making an error is just too big.

However, if you are brave/foolish enough to try, than you can do so,
and if you do not make an error you will get exactly the same results
as -predict-:

*------------------------ begin example ------------------------
sysuse auto, clear
recode rep78 1/2=3
mlogit rep78 foreign

predict double pr*, pr

gen double xb1 = _b[4:_cons] + _b[4:foreign]*foreign
gen double xb2 = _b[5:_cons] + _b[5:foreign]*foreign

gen double denom = 1 + exp(xb1) + exp(xb2)

gen double mp1 = 1/denom
gen double mp2 = exp(xb1)/denom
gen double mp3 = exp(xb2)/denom

tab pr1 mp1
tab pr2 mp2
tab pr3 mp3
*-------------------- end example ------------------------------
