Default Faster 3g Speed configuration

Ok been lots of hunting around and looking where this is I am just going to make a post with this as the title hopefully making it much easier to find.

Faster 3G

Ok looks like this link is broken here is a very condensed version

on your phone pad dial ##3282#
enter your msl #
If you dont know it there are other posts to find it.

in the edit menu go to

Others
then Multimedia in there change the proxie address to 0.0.0.0
There are 2 proxies to change. Leave the ports alone

Good idea. We are starting to accumulate a lot of good stuff and it is getting hard to remember where I saw it except for the sticky threads. Some of the good stuff gets pushed down the list and some shy noobies may miss out unless told about it.

Not to mention if its in a (relatively) unrelated thread you will be scratching your head for days trying to figure where it went.

After changing my settitngs, I have 1.1M, 1.3M, 1.01M down, .59M, .47M up from speedtest.net app. (5 pulls)

Prior to changes my highest was .89M down and .21M up. (10 pulls)


Admittedly, this is not very scientific and I may have 'flyers', but nice none-the-less.

Up load seems greatly affected.



*edit* wondering if this is bypassing a firewall and making us more vulnerable

I'm running into problems getting the MSL off my phone. I've tried through my laptop and also through a terminal editor on the phone. After I put in the command it just prints a blank line.

When running on the terminal editor it is getting SU permissions, so I'm not sure what is going on. anyone have any ideas?

are you using terminal emulater from market?
after typing su you get the
# prompt?
then type
getprop ril.MSL

it should bring back 6 digits.

I am really itching to do this, but I was curious (like kevincott above me) if this would make the phone more vulnerable. Again, just curious. Thanks

RRSpikes,

When you enter your MSL it should be on a separate screen (a centered white balloon) and you enter the MSL via Android keyboard.

If you entered MSL with normal phone dialing system, you were not on the correct screen.

I have changed these settings a few times testing and never had a problem.

after you Dial ##3282# do you get nothing or do you get the view edit choices before entering your MSL

It works with the stock phone app. It does not work with go contacts / dialer.

If when you dial ##3282# you do not get the menu check your /system/app folder and see if you have hiddensettings.apk
shabby left it out of one of the shabbymods. It is easy to put back in you just need to know if it is there.

My numbers are all over the place. The highest #'s I have seen was .67M down and .32 up (new settings), and .30M down and .15M up (old settings). I have swapped back and forth several times now and I haven't seen any numbers close to yours. I'm going to keep checking at different locations before I choose which settings I am going to go with.

This is working flawlessly on the Samsung Galaxy Prevail with no firewall app or task killer.

TIP for those wondering about the HTTP and the RSTP proxy change. It is supposed to be changed to 0.0.0.0 / This setting does NOT tamper with security ports of being hacked. It's a null IP address that simply allows a no target configuration of the network that you're on to send packets to and from of data that is not needed from targeted servers.

Again, do NOT use a firewall app as there is no reason to have this installed unless you're a paranoid person who thinks people are watching them 24/7 and the government is out to get them. *rolls eyes*

If you need to change it back, here is the address as required.

Yea, my numbers were inconsistant too, I was only comparing highs.

Since 0.0.0.0 I have seen 1.4Mb down/.59Mb up to .51Mb down/.04Mb up.



I tried to tether wifi today and was not working, not sure if this is connected or not. Comcast was backup shortly after and didn't need to test further.

Anyone else notice a WiFi tethering issue since changing to 0.0.0.0?

Maybe you misunderstood my concerns, Are we bypassing a Sprint/Boost firewall?

In the same manner that many peeps try to bypass the proxy server at work.

I have used wifi tethering after changing that with no problem. This phone has a difficult time with wifi lots of fiddling is required to get it set up correct.
there is wireless tether 3. something beta that you can use to make the phone use infrastructure mode and it seems to give the least problems.

WOW ! Great kick in the ass for speed guys. Thanks much. Have not tried my tether yet and hope it still works ok. Running stock Prevail root only here FYI.



Update here..............Speedtest.net says I'm getting 298ms ping.....0.54down.....0.36up
I'm not sure what those numbers mean but it "feels" faster than before.

Reconnected tether and am writing this from tether mode right now.

I would say it was this mornings storms, but I checked email on phone without tether working.

yeah, I can confirm that I have no hiddensettings.apk, I'm running Shabbymod 0.8 slim.

Is there a way that I can get the hiddensettings.apk?

EDIT- all done ^.^ much easier to put back in than I thought

I had the same issue when I first changed the proxy settings . It took me several attempts and changing things around until I got the performance I was looking for . When I say changing things around , I mean really changing things around ( Odin recovery ED13 , OTA EE14 update, re-installing all Shabbymods , etc, etc, etc , ) . If you're not having issues , don't feel comfortable with digging in to your OS and don't want to take a chance on bricking your phone , I would leave well enough alone . If you do feel OK with it , get-r-done ! I'm glad I did .

I would say, be patient and spend several days checking your speeds.

Benchmarks can vary widely due to traffic and networks conditions. In a previous post on this thread I mention that my results after 0.0.0.0 vary.

Best to test conditions at a similar time of day and from the same location, and for several pulls.

Compare apples to apples and such.

*What I posted was the average of 3 pulls before the proxy change and 3 pulls after the the proxy change all of this was done in about a half hour.

I will probably give it another try then. I just installed the shabby mod shortly after that post and became completely preoccupied with that. Thanks for the tips!

and as far as bricking my phone goes if it happens it happens it will just be another learning experience and it will join a large pile other learned experiences either way I will be having fun with it

I will probably give it another try then. I just installed the shabby mod shortly after that post and became completely preoccupied with that. Thanks for the tips!

and as far as bricking my phone goes if it happens it happens it will just be another learning experience and it will join a large pile other learned experiences either way I will be having fun with it
That's what I'm talking about man ! No guts ..... No glory ! Get-R-Done !

I could not agree more, WetBiker. I am actually glad my first phone bricked. This second one with the official OTA and Optimus battery tips is running much better as far as signal and battery life.

Thanks to all who posted this fix
I went the way of wetbiker and called Boost to get my MSL #! They were very pleasant and too eager to help (for my liking anyway) Then she ased what i was trying to do reset my settings? I said yes and then she started telling what else i needed to do. I said I think i cant handle it from here Thanks and goodbye!
Now i wonder if im gonna find out if i had any Boost visitors on my phone! !
Anyway it worked great! 5 bars here!
Thanks

LOL @ the Boost visitors comment !!!! Try the Shabbykernel , it is located a few post down in this thread . You will also need Odin to install it !!

Absolutely amazing boost....

Thanks for the kernal info
where does one get the SPHM820.ops file and on odin,where do you select it???
I know the tar file goes to the pda. And do you need to setup your phone in any special way???
Thanks in advance!

Hmmmm!
Maybe I spoke too soon I ran odin with just the ops.file in the place for ops. and boot image file in pda!?!
There were no other files for phone and boot!?!
In the odin d.load there were 2 files-odin & ops. In kernal there is 1-boot.img!?!
So where are the elusive tar files for the phone & boot spots?????
Thanks for your patience

STOP !!!!!! Do not use any other zips when installing the Shabbykernel . All you need is the OPS in the Odin download and add the Shabbykernel to the PDA slot . Hit start and an error message may pop up , Disregard this message and click start .



EDIT: The other tar. files are for recovery . They are not needed for the Shabbykernel .

WHEW ! LOL !! Those other zips are for the recovery . I have no idea what would have happened if you had started Odin with the other tar. files added with the Shabbykernel . Glad you got it working .

Hey optimus
Thanks for your help!
Im glad to have that back door shut!
I think its BS when companys pulled that kind of crap! Spying.keylogging etc.
There ought to be a law against it!
There was a school in Philadelphia pa. that pulled that kind of crap when they loaned school pc,s out to their students. The students said they saw the camera light come on while they had it open listening to music or whatever and the school amitted that they had software on the pc s to do that. they said it was for tracking purposes! lol
Anyway, you hear about it all the time!
Thanks
Ric

I havent been able to find a site that has the same info, but what you do is type in ##3282#
then hit edit. you'll be asked to put in your msl. (6 digit number)
next go to others, then multimedia.
you'll have four listings
RTSP Proxy address
RTSP proxy port <--- click this one and change it to 0.0.0.0
HTTPPD proxy address
HTTPPD proxy port <-- click this one and change it to 0.0.0.0

To make sure it sticks, reboot the phone and check the settings again. some people have said that it goes back to the old settings.

to find your msl number, easiest way to do it is download terminal emulator open it up, type su and enter, superuser will pop up, press allow. then type getprop ril.MSL exactly as it is with MSL in caps. then press enter. you'll get the 6 digit code then.

Are you sure it's the proxy ports we change? Because other posts I've read say to change the proxy addresses.

Not sure if this would go here or in the All Things Root section but I found a way that will really give your speeds a boost. I found the 3G Turbo charger script over on xda but instead of using script manager and the script they have, I just went into the build.prop file and edited it directly using one of the options in the sample build.prop they have on the post. I now have down speeds averaging 900-1200kbps and up speeds averaging 150-200kbps. Here's the link if anyone's interested: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=15948434&postcount=1127
I used the Update 3 test 8 settings.

After upgrading to 2.3.5 I no longer get the option to change this information to 0.0.0.0.

Anyone else?
