Default [SGS3-R530M] Modem Repository

Hey guys ill be posting all the modems we have here

http://shabbypenguin.com/?developer=MetroPCS_Samsung_SG3(CDMA-White)

Download them and flash in cwm and should write the modem , i can make odin tars if anyone really wants em. ill be updating as time goes on.

now you may be wondering why? sometimes the latest modem isnt always teh best one, different people get better battery or worse, better signal and speeds depending. so test them all very thoroughly and see what works for you

like shab said may or may not improve anything usually if it dosn't improve anything probaly fixes a few bugs to make your phone's radio more efficient aka less battery consumption.

well its hard to say, on teh epic 4g touch some people had better speeds on some of the ics modems, but some experienced loss of signal (your phone goes into airplane mode without letting you know and can only be fixed by reboot) so they were misisng calls/texts. some get better battery on older ones its all per user really hence why im uploading all of tehm that i have so that people can try for themselves and customize their phone how they want

Running on LJ3 now. Thanks Shabby.
I had to reboot one more time after flashing to get data working again. Works like a charm. I'll test it out and see if I can find a difference.

Thanks again for making the MetroPCS SIII a real part of the SIII community.

Yea for me lj1 seems a little mi better... I'm normally at about 6 down and up but on lj3 it will jump all the way to 10 and end up at like 3 or 3.5 down and up will start at about 1.5 and end up at 6.5 lol


Different results for different people doesn't hurt to try takes a couple of mins...

Thumbs up

Tried all 5, with speed tests and noting signal strength on each one before finding the one my phone/area works best with... MAN what a huge difference! I had no idea how much difference a different modem would make on a given ROM. Should really help battery life too.

Shabby - once again, YOU DA MAN! After all the work you've done for us, you deserve a Kegger! (will Mom allow alcohol and loud music in her basement?)


Seriously - great work bro!

glad to hear it man, and yea better signal means better battery, if you have a lower signal like -90 then your device will be searching for other towers hoping to get connected to a better connection, which means draining via teh radio and wasting cpu cycles.

yes, you dont include new modems in roms, its asking for trouble. imagine if you flashed an att rom with a gsm radio?

this way it allows you to flash whatever radio you wnat and whatever rom you want

it varys. you may have had your LTE signal which is scaled differently. cdma signal however is -50 you are underneath the tower, and -110 you cant even make jokes about "can you hear me now"

6mbps is decent speed so i imagine you have decent signal just saw the LTE numbers instead, obviously its still negative so the "lower" number is better, but idk what is acceptable numbers for it yet

i would also try a signal booster on the playmarket to go along with trying a new modem out. what that does is refresh your radio and searchers for the nearest tower possible giving you the best latency possible and in return more signal bars and perhaps faster lte speeds but i suppose everyone is testing from home keep in mind just beacause your signal might great at home wont mean it will be great everywhere ya know how metro is. also some areas might be better than home so ya just gotta play with modems and see which is best for you and it might not be the latest MB2 could be a previous version.

Ed Zachery... with mine (at home), LL1 worked best. Gotta try'em all and find the best one for a given area.

I'll keep all of them on my external... just in case I'm stuck out somewhere overnight with a crappy signal - that way I'll have some options to work with that may help.
These are very handy to have on the SD.

not much i will admit battery dont last as long but i havn't experimented to see if its the modem/raidio thats draining my battery or something else with the firmware itself. i have noticed a few more process running the back ground so debloating would be something ill look into. as far my 4g speeds ever since prl 2032 was pushed back im averaged at 4 mbps hasn't gone lower than maybe 3.5 so thats cool. highest? 7 mbps like 20 min from home.
