    Hey ya'll --- just a quick note to let you know the radio upgrade that Flipz has posted on his site installs and functions fine with Fresh 2.1.1 -- and other ROMs as he notes in his details about the upgrade. I flashed it under RA 1.6.2.

    Geek For Me – Android CDMA Sprint Hero

    If you wish to upgrade, go to his site above -- download the zip and complete instructions are there. It is an easy flash but MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!!! :rolleyes:

    Cheers -- Bob -- :D

    So I did this and initially my signal was worse than before in my room, however, it went back to normal after I updated my PRL.

    Make sure your PRL is up to date!

    If you are up-to-date on your PRL, it should show version 60664. ;)

    Here are a couple of paragraphs for those that are unfamiliar with the significance of the PRL in your phone....

    PRL

    (Preferred Roaming List)
    The PRL is a list of information that resides in the memory of some kinds of digital phones. It lists the radio frequencies the phone can use in various geographic areas.

    The part of the list for each area is ordered by the bands the phone should try to use first. Therefore it's a kind of priority list for which towers the phone should use.

    The PRL helps determine which home-network towers to use, and also which towers belonging to other networks to use in roaming situations (areas where the home network has no coverage.) When roaming, the PRL may instruct the phone to use the network with the best roaming rate for the carrier, rather than the one with the strongest signal at the moment.

    Since a PRL tells the phone "where" to search for a signal, as carrier networks change over time, an updated PRL may be required for a phone to "see" all of the coverage that it should, both with the home network and for roaming.

    Where do I access the PRL? I looked through all of the settings but didn't see it. I really don't know what "PRL" stands for either!:eek:

    Hiya Papit ---

    (1) Read the prior post by me. What PRL stands for.

    (2) Settings --> About Phone --> System Updates --> Update PRL

    That should get you up to speed :D

    Cheers.

    Lol...I didn't even look in system updates because I thought that was for updating Sprint's versions, so I didn't want to go there! The jokes on me.

    Thanks for spelling it out for me!

    Yes, it is ok to flash back to the stock radio. I would reboot, and try again to update your prl.

    How would you flash back to the stock radio? Is there a zip file out there for it?
