With regard to phone calls dropping when on a nominal h/3g connection (as when I'm in the house I have a 3g/h reception 2 bars but when I pick the phone up it seems to drop out to g after a few seconds so if I answer a call on 3g/h a few seconds later the phone switches to g and disconnects me poor signal in the house I think but very annoying as I have to keep the phone on g only in the house and use WiFi for browsing at the moment)). I searched for some ROM radio files to flash to my rooted phone and found these 3 roms
[Radio ROM] Desire Radio Roms - xda-developers
Was wondering if anyone has looked into this and if there is anymore (possibly updated files) out there. At the moment I have downgraded to file 30.34 as this radio file seems to switch from g/3g/h the quickest and it's a bit more stable (still cutting to g connection once I've had the phone in my hand for a couple of seconds (think due to the receiver being in the bottom of the phone as someone else has reported), will check it's progress but all files give a similar reception.
Question, obviously asked in several previous threads, but I'm unable to resolve the next issue at hand with that data. When I power on, and hit hboot, I'm still seeing S-On, yet if I log into abb shell, su, I get "#", as well as now having the icon for "Superuser Permissions". Used both unrEVOked3 and forever in this process.
I've attempted to install the radio update "PB31IMG.zip" via root of SD card. I'm able to see / install it, yet baseband is still showing 1.00.03.04.06. I have W7, and have the option to "Hide extensions for known file types" off (Can't stand not seeing exactly what files are what). What am I missing? I've seen that others have had to do the "*22899 then *228 option 2", yet If it doesn't show it as being a valid install, I'm hesitant to try and reinstall it.
I have a rooted evo running fresh 22.214.171.124 and so far I love it. I used unrevoked 3.21 to do this. My question is does flashing new radio files and pellet files actually increase and or decrease how well the radio works on the phone. I noticed hat once I installed wireless tether that my WiFi signal seems to go down 1 or 2 bars when the laptop is not even 10 feet away. Is thus normal. Anyway I'm very knew to the whole flashing of radio files and just wanted to hear if it does anything or not.
I'm constantly flashing new ROM's my end to try and find one that suits. As I'm sure you're all aware, most of them say "Use this Radio for best results". I've stuck with a previously flashed radio for the last few ROM's. I'm about to flash Defrost 6.0. The literature surrounding the ROM says to use a specific Radio to get the camera to work.
My hesitation is this - I've read that trying to flash the same radio version as the one you already have flashed can brick the phone? Is this true? If so, how do I find out which radio version I have?
has anyone rooted and used the hero without flashing a rom? even for a little while? my main question is: did or can anything go wrong with a rooted -only- phone? if i cant get the update anywhere ill finally root to delete the useless sprint apps but im happy with the OS as is so im not interested in the risks that may be involved with flashing. thank you for your patience as im new to android.
Does doing a clean wipe for a ROM install erase any previous radio / wimax updates? I switched from Fresh 1.0 to Backed Snack but did a radio and wimax updates with Fresh. Should I re-apply those updates after flashing the Baked Snack ROM or are they still updated from the Fresh 1.0 ROM?
I rooted my Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept and uninstalled all the calendar files but I can't figure out how to reinstall them. I have tried installing the calendar provider, calendar apk, and odex files that I download, but nothing will install. Is there a custom ROM that I can flash that will install google calendar again or another way to get back the calendar function?
Been running Fresh 2.1.1 for about a week now and it seems pretty good. But with 2.1.2 just out I'm planning on flashing that as soon as possible. I've been running the stock radio and RA and wanted to get some feedback on weather it would be beneficial to update both the radio and RA to the newest versions available before I flash to 2.1.2. My awake time is at about 10% and cell standby is using 48% of my battery while phone idle is using 44%. Does this sound normal? If not would flashing a new radio and RA help resolve these issues?
My HTC Desire was on Gingerbread 2.3 and I then decided to root the phone with ClockWorkMod. I can flash any ROM fine but when I try to flash a radio it says 'Installation Aborted' and then tells me to use Edify Scripting?
Just a few questions on flashing a new radio on a Sprint Hero, as I'd like to be sure I won't brick my phone and there really don't seem to be many guides on this.
Are certain radios only compatible with certain ROMs? If so, what do you do if you want to flash a new ROM afterwards? In the event a radio flash fails, can you attempt to flash a different one or is your phone pretty much bricked at that point?
I'll probably have more questions later, as the thought of bricking my new Hero is well, I'd really rather not have to go back to my old BlackBerry.
I've been running defrost ROM, but wanted to try opendesire for the 720 video. But whenever I try to flash a new ROM using ROM manager, the phone re-boots as normal, but I get a n icon of the phone with a red question mark above it... The phone then just re-boots as normal without flashing anything?
The following post refers to this particular rom: HTC OTA Froyo 2.2, *FINAL*, build 3.36.651.6 (Rooted) Odexed - xda-developers
Before I make a blanket statement about not wiping your phone before installing, I should say that the following info is based on my personal experience.
I was coming from a rooted stock 2.1 ROM with netarchy's custom kernel. I flashed the 2.2 froyo rom + radio + wimax, rebooting between each flash. I did not wipe before flashing anything (more of an oversight rather than being intentional). When the phone booted fully, I had all of my apps, homescreen layouts, settings, etc. And no problems at all so far.
I suspect that moving from Sense rom to Sense rom also helped. Not sure what would happen if you are coming from a non-Sense ROM. But it would appear that this rooted stock 2.2 ROM, which is based on an OTA 2.2 upgrade, was designed to preserve your apps and settings. After all, who would want to accept an OTA update that forced them to reinstall/reconfigure everything?
I recommend that before you flash this 2.2 rom, do a nandroid backup, so you can always return to your current state. Then try to flash the 3 zip files without wiping first. If it works, then great. If it totally corrupts the OS, not a problem, since your bootloader and recovery are still intact. Just reboot the phone into recovery, wipe, then try again. If it still fails, then you can fall back on your nandroid backup.
I rooted my Inc awhile ago following the thread here. Complete Guide: Root, unrEVOked, Titanium, Tether, Nandroid, AdFree, animation, and remove apps.I then loaded Skyraider 2.5.2 a few days ago. Now I am wanting to upgrade my radio as it is still 1.0.Can someone point me to some instructions on upgrading my radio? Should I even mess with upgrading my radio?
I get an error when I try to update the radio. "update radio ignoring attempt to do multiple firmware updates" I don't know what I did wrong. I put PB13IMG.ZIP on sd card, it installed. Then DINC_OTA and renamed to update applied that. REBOOTED checked settings and its still not updated.
What is the best way to backup a non-rooted phone? I've searched for threads etc, but it seems that different products only backup certain info, some requiring root.I just want to backup my settings, apps and data to the SD card, or if at all possible an ftp / scp server.
I have talk talk, and my internet is unusable unless I've lowered the mtu to 1458 or 1432 or something like that. My router doesn't support it, so I've had to do it on each device using it manually (boooo). Worked out how to do it on the PC and notebook, but is it even possible on my desire? Or should I go and buy a new router that DOES allow me to change it (in which case, any recommendations?)?
I rooted my Desire a couple of months ago, and all was working fine.
This morning everything was a bit sluggish, so I restarted it, and now it's going to the HTC "quietly brilliant" screen, and then reboots, it's stuck in this cycle. It's plugged into a power socket, it's certainly not a power issue.
Any ideas of what I can do to get this to load back up? I guess if this is bricked, I'm completely screwed, as Orange won't touch it now it's been rooted?
Received the upgrade from Telstra Australia today for my Desire. I'm not very good with the tech and software side of things (quite a dunce really) and have looked for a guide as to what to do prior to installing the update and also once completed. Is anyone able to steer me in the right direction as to where a good guide is or maybe a few pointers. My phone isn't rooted and is not something I want to gamble with being not techsavvy.
I have rooted and then updated to stock HTC (unbranded) froyo so I have HBOOT-0.92.0001. My phone keeps rebooting under load and it seems to be a hardware problem so I need to return it. Is there any easy way to return to the carriers official firmware so they don't refuse a warranty return?
