Sprint HTC Hero : Change CDMA Version To GSM?
I know this is a rather odd question, but, I know that on the damageless rom, it defaults to locate for GSM Radio Towers. Now, I know there is two HTC Hero devices, The Eris (GSM Version) and the Hero (CDMA Version), however the ability to search for different towers in the Damageless rom has me intrigued on if it is possible at all.
Why I ask is, I am going out of the country, specifically to the carribean islands and mexico. I am wondering if it is at all possible to use it like that. I really doubt it because I don't think that the CDMA version is backwards compatible with the GSM version, but I thought I might as well ask.
Android :: GSM 4G Vs CDMA?
Although the title has iPhone 4G and EVO 4G, it's more about the different networks and how they are approaching giving more bandwidth to their users. Writer indicates that CDMA has maxed out it's data speeds, hence the need for 4G, but that GSM has not. Anyway, interesting take on 4G. 4G Apple iPhone, Sprint EVO: Worth The Hype?
Motorola Droid :: CDMA Vs GSM?
I read that the droid will be on verizon, which is a CDMA network, but i also read that it will support GSM radios. does that mean it will have a SIM card slot? and does that mean it could be unlocked to work on tmobile?
HTC EVO 4G :: GSM / CDMA Trick - Manually Update PRL
I don't have my Evo yet so I can't and won't say this works 100% but from what I've read and what people have told me this seems to fix the problem so you won't have to do the GSM/CDMA trick anymore. Many have told me that you have to manually update this by going into -> Menu > Settings > System Updates > Update PRL. Let me know how it works out for you.

HTC EVO 4G :: CDMA Network - Searching For GSM Signal?
A friend of mine is a member of the EVO Facebook group and sent me to a link which reads as follows:
"For those of you having battery issues I found a way to Dramatically improve the battery life.
First things first, go into Settings> About Phone> Battery> Battery Use> Cell Standby. Assuming your phone has been on, or off the charger for ~10 minutes, it should show Time Without Signal at around 50%. Next thing, press Home and bring up the dialer. Dial *#*#4636#*#* (Do not press "Call"). After a second, it should bring up the "Testing" menu.
Go into Phone Information, press MENU, and tap "select radio band." You should experience a Force Close, don't panic, this was supposed to happen. Scrolling down shows that the preferred network type is GSM auto (prl). What this means is that even though you are connected to a CDMA network, your phone is trying to find a GSM network, preventing the radio from sleeping, and causing excessive battery drain. Remedy this by tapping GSM auto (prl) and changing it to CDMA auto (prl).
Now your done, your TWS should drop dramatically, and you should experience much better battery life!
Note: You need to do this every time you reboot."
I've changed it on my phone just now and the service still works as normal. I guess we'll see if the battery life increases. If this works and with overclock widget I should be getting some crazy battery life now!
HTC Incredible : GSM Vs CDMA / For Battery Life
Based on this thread in another forum (2.1 users what is your Time without a signal %" [Archive] - xda-developers) I did both the Airplane trick and the following:
The problem is a bug in a lot of 2.1 roms out there now.
There is a fix:
1) Go to dialer, put in *#*#4636#*#*
2) Press Phone Information
3) Press Menu, and pick Select Radio Band (ITS NORMAL TO GET A FORCE CLOSE)
4) Go down and change GSM Auto(PRL) to CDMA Auto (PRL)
Both made my Juice Plotter (JD) increase in battery time left.
Samsung Moment :: Possible Solution To CDMA Lockup?
I think I have found a quirky solution to this nagging issue with Moment but it requires some patience. Basically whenever I see that dreaded EVDO up arrow stuck in place, I quickly switch to WiFi mode. I will keep it in WiFi mode anywhere from 5-15 minutes and then will turn it off and switch to EVDO. So far in 3 out of 3 tries, the CDMA lock went away. Now, you might say that just rebooting is a faster fix but there are times when I'm browsing a page or doing something else and don't want to reboot. Give it a try and let me know if it works with your Moment. I'm running Amstel rom 2.0
Sprint HTC :: Simple Way To Root Hero CDMA
I just downloaded a simple file and uploaded it with Astro to root my phone before I ever put a custom ROM on it. I'm just simply trying to find a root for my friends phone that doesn't involve needing to make a nandroid backup ect. like I did with my Ally. Does anyone have a simple root file that I can upload on my friend's Hero? He has the 2.1 update... also does anyone know of any custom ROM's for his phone that have the 2.2 update? If so, then I will go through the trouble to make his recovery, backup and flash the ROM (which should already have the root), but if not, then it's only worth getting a simple root.
Sprint HTC Hero :: MoDaCo Custom ROM For CDMA
You can now create a customised ROM containing only the parts you required - click here to read more about the MoDaCo Custom Custom ROM online kitchen!
MCR now optionally includes Wavesecure in ROM, allowing you to lock / locate / wipe your device remotely in the event of loss and be notified if the SIM is changed. The application cannot be uninstalled by a thief and we are actively working with Wavesecure to ensure that in a forthcoming release, your settings will survive a hard reset!
This ROM is based on the updated 'MR' ROM release series (together with my own optimisations) for the best possible performance! The ROM is packaged as a core version with optional add on packs.
Included in the 'core'
- Built with my new MCR build process which reduces size and boost speed of the ROM
- Rooted with 'adb remount' permission and superuser APK
- A2SD included (fully automatic - thanks cyanogen!) - create a EXT2 partition as your second partition to use. dalvik-cache remains on device.
- Added Jbed Java
- Added Dropbear SSH running by default, check 'About' screen for password (port 2222). You can now remove this by running /system/bin/removedropbear.sh
- Added Notes app from Dragon
- Added Spare Parts (run it and switch the 2 animation types to 'fast' for an even better experience!)
- Added WiFi Status indicator, with kind permission of Andrew Schwimmer
- Added busybox 1.15.3 with Droid Explorer support
- Added nano 2.09 - text editor for use in shell mode
- Added parted and sqlite tools
- Added terminfo and settings to boot.img to allow nano etc. use
- Added files required for Debian linux including loxley's updated bootdeb script
- Added all 4 available HTC widgets
- Moved Quickoffice to data partition to allow easy uninstall
- Moved Google Maps and Google Voice Search to data partition to allow easy update
- Deleted 'Learn More' application
- Silenced boot sound (it's still there and can be reactivated with a file edit)
- You can now check your MoDaCo Custom ROM (MCR) version from the about menu
Included in main 'enhanced' add on pack
- Added Business Card Scanner
- Added 'Plurk' client
- Added WAP browser
Other optional add on packs (apply as normal update zips)
- 'WaveSecure' add on pack (puts Wavesecure in ROM - it is no longer in core)
- 'Boot Sounds' add on pack (restores boot sounds)
- 'Hebrew Fonts' add on pack (installs hebrew fonts)
Recommended applications (available from the market)
- More Locale for setting non english Locales
11/Jan 2.0 - MoDaCo Custom ROM for Sprint CDMA Hero - Android @ MoDaCo
ENSURE YOU DO A NANDROID BACKUP SO YOU CAN 'ROLL BACK' IF REQUIRED!
Please note that first boot may take a little while, especially if you have a lot of apps on your A2SD partition. Be patient! If you want a real clean start or you have issues with your existing A2SD installed apps when you boot, you need to wipe your EXT2 partition on SD too by executing 'adb shell rm -r /system/sd/app', 'adb shell rm -r /system/sd/app-private' and 'adb shell reboot'
The ROM is in an update.zip format for installation via the custom recovery image.
For the complete newbies, these are the steps you need to take with a 'virgin' Hero:
- Download and install (via rooting) the patched recovery image (step by step guide to follow)
- Download this custom ROM, and copy it to your SD card
- Enter the recovery image (if you're not in it already) by powering on while pressing 'home'
- Select 'nandroid backup' from the menu to do a backup
- If you copied the custom rom as update.zip, select 'apply sdcard:update.zip', else select the option below.
- all done
Feedback / feature requests welcome! This ROM is posted in multiple places - although I try to provide support everywhere the ROM is posted, of course you will receive the quickest response at MoDaCo.
Finally, if you like the MoDaCo Custom ROMs, consider supporting MoDaCo by visiting the subscriptions page and upgrading your account.

HTC Incredible :: Why Cannot Software Toggle Network On CDMA?
I have a CDMA Android phone, the Droid Incredible on Verizon. I have a pretty good background with electronics, hardware and software. Can anyone please tell me why all the apps in the app market state they are unable to toggle network connectivity off and on on a CDMA device? My device runs HTC SenseUI. There is a toggle widget that allows the mobile network to be turned on and off. There is a settings section that allows it to be done. Why don't applications have access to this functionality?Someone PLEASE be technical and detailed. This is a frustrating limitation that I just don't understand.
Sprint HTC Hero : Disable CDMA Radio / Way To Fix
I recently purchased a Sprint HTC Hero, updated to 1.56 and it still has horrendous battery life. I charged it to 100%, unplugged it, didn't touch it once and 4 hours later the battery was almost dead. After troubleshooting I think that the ZERO cellular reception I get in my home is the culprit. I believe that the phone is constantly searching for service and causing a battery drain. The HTC Sense widget only turns off the Cellular DATA, but not the actually radio. I would like to be able to leave WiFi on (i use Google Voice SMS at home) and disable the CDMA Radio alltogether.. is there a way?
Android : Locate CelliD Location With CDMA?
Is there a way to determine location via CellID on a CDMA network? I can get a network ID, base station ID, and system ID programatically, but is there an api somewhere to convert these to lat, long coordinates? The CdmaCellLocation.getBaseStationLatitude() and CdmaCellLocation.getBaseStationLongitude() methods return some junk number. Can I convert the cdma dating I'm getting to CID and LAC somehow?
I'm getting a system ID of 40, a network ID of 3, and a base station ID of 4672, and that appears to be exactly worthless.
Android : Droid Handset Which CDMA Based?
I would like to know whether Android handsets support CDMA network also. Are there any handset which currently supports CDMA or every handset has support for that. Actually I want to retrieve the location information such as Cellid, LAC, MCC, MNC. But if the network is of CDMA type then will there be any difference in the API. Since API for fetching cellid is GsmCellLocation. This class will give the cellid and lac of the current network.
If in some cases the network is of CDMA type then how would location information be fetched in that.. Can we use TelephonyManager class methods for any kind of device? In this class there is no method which gives the LAC of the current network.
Android : Port Droid To CDMA Phones?
Because there is a new project that wants me to porting android to cdma phones, before that, we have made the gsm version as a product, but I am not sure that if GOOGLE has updated a different version suitable for CDMA? If it has, I have to update my code...especially the RIL module..
Android : Root Cdma Cell Phone?
If I ever figure out how to root my cellularsouth hero, can i or should I download and install 2.1 when we finally get it from my carrier? Will it just over write what I have on there or will it need to be flashed back to stock? There really is no way to back up the OS from what I can tell. When i jailbroke my iphone an upgrade just put it back to factory default with the upgrade. I don't think it works like that with Android right? Because of not baing able to back up the phone before hand i worry about bricking it.
I am also wondering since there is so much trouble rooting the cellularsouth version of the hero, if it is even worth it. By the time i or someone else figures it out 2.1 will be out and then it may be a long time to get that rooted too. Sometimes I wish this company I am with was not cdma. cdma seems to have the most trouble getting rooted. But we do get great signal and service, but thats about all with this company.
Sprint HTC Hero :: ROM Damage Control For Rooted CDMA
So I just joined the rooted side of things and it was quite nerve wrecking to root for someone who isn't experienced, but I did it and it worked.
Issue is as follows:
status: ROM damage control
Trying to update with DCupdater for damage control 188.8.131.52, but the screen gets stuck on SU request. Also I had to redownload Rom manager by clockworldMOD and it won't flash clockword MOD recovery so I can use it?
Motorola Droid :: Flashed To Boost Mobile CDMA?
Alright, so I recently purchased the droid and I am looking to put in on Boost CDMA for their unlimited plan.I can pull the PRL off of a boost phone that I am using right now (I think) and have an esn of an old boost phone can I can use for a switch so it is recognized in the database. I own both phones so I don't see any issue with this.My question is; is rooting the phone necessary for this to work. I would think so, but I am not sure. I have seen people flash the droid over to cricket, virgin, page plus, metro pcs, so why not boost mobile?I am just looking for some feedback from people more knowledgeable than me. This is my first android phone, so I am quite ignorant in all things android. I flashed an HTC TP2 over to boost, so I am hoping I can do the same with the droid.
Android :: Pattern Lock Be Bypassed On CDMA Phone?
If someone finds or steals the phone, can the pattern lock be bypassed on a CDMA phone (not sure if GSM phones are vulnerable to SIM replacement as a bypass)? If not, perhaps that's pretty good security, so long as you're careful not to let others see your unlock pattern and you wipe the screen to remove your finger trail. Of course that still leaves the sd card unprotected, but if keep everything important in your dropbox, you can delete it from there, and probably do so before the person decides to pull the card out.
Motorola Droid :: CDMA Network Working Improperly?
I'm not familiar at all with the differences in the networks in terms of CDMA, GSM, etc. I just read a news brief about the DROID possibly going to ATT at some point and the person writing it said something to the effect of "for those not wanting to be tied to the verizon's CDMA network." I thought verizon had the best network. I realize that in the past Verizon has crippled phones, but not sure if that has anything to do with what he was referring to, doesn't sound like he was talking about that.
Android :: How To Determine Home Carrier On CDMA Phone?
How does one determine the home carrier on a CDMA phone? By home carrier I mean the carrier that the phone's owner has a contract with, not the owner of the cell site that the phone is communicating with. These are different when the phone is roaming. On a GSM phone I can get the home carrier from the IMSI recorded on the SIM, but this does not work on a CDMA phone. CDMA has a similar identifier called home system ID. Is there a way to query the home system ID? If that is not possible, how do I determine the home carrier? On Windows Mobile I am forced to search the registry looking for strings like 'Verizon' and 'Sprint'. Is there a similar klooge on Android?
Sprint HTC Hero :: Android Eclair Is Native CDMA - Then What Was 1.5?
As we call know, our Hero (at the moment at least) runs Android 1.5. Also, it WILL be getting Eclair, which from what I've heard has native CDMA support? What, doest that mean 1.5 did not have CMDA support?
What can we expect from an OS that has native CDMA support? Does it have anything to do with the phone's software performance? I'm just a little confused on this, and if someone couldnt shed some light on it that would be very nice...
