    I know...but that's ok...I'm an engineer (or well majoring in it) and I'm a girl, btw ;] Be nice to the nerds...they are probably going to be the ones that design your bridges and buildings :D

    If i remeber correctly when ZVB came out (with the new radio img) after you flashed it and booted the rom. You had to reboot back into recovery and wipe cache in order for the market to work.

    No idea if this had been posted already (didnt read all the posts) so just throwing that out there.

    oh ok...makes sense now for my market not working even though I cleared cache and dalvik cache after flashing. Thanks, Dots :]

    Whoa Sorry about the Gender mix up!!:confused:
    Just saw the Avatar and assumed.

    Naw its cool I am a Design Draftsman.

    I engineer things but dont have the degree.
    Where you going to school?
    What engineering you going for? Mechanical, Civil, Architechural (boy I bet I mispelled that)

    so'k...my fault...maybe I should put it in my sig, but then maybe not lol (think I might change my avatar, though)...Electrical Engineer at Clemson University (in SC). Can't code worth a crap lol.

    Nice Avatar.... yes that helps. LOL

    Electrical huh.

    Yeah electrical is voodoo to me.

    I am a mechanical guy. Gear Head type. I like things that go Vroom Vroom
    Rebuilding Engines is my specialty.

    However I work here in Houston The Good ole OIL patch.
    You know the people that Obama is trying to destroy. Yeah thats us.

    So Did you ever get the new Radio to update Properly?
    I have a new cool way to take the update and all future updates as well.
    I will be posting it in the near future.

    Its a way to do it without a computer using Drellisdees tools. :cool:

    So...knowing how to read and all...I'm not seeing (reading) anything positive that comes from this radio d/l.
    I guess I'll just wait till I see some positive reviews. ..don't seem worth all the problems. ..yet; )

    Still...DEF. worth a, "thanks" ..for the work and for sharing.

    it seems my signal is better. I live out in the country and usually have 1 bar if lucky now i am getting 3 bars steady.

    Anymore goodness from this radio update?
    Probably a matter of opinion but what da hay.....is it worth going through all those fun steps to go back to stock just to get the complete ota update....or is this really all that's needed...?

    This is all thats needed. unless you absolutely NEED it to be reflected in the about phone panel i get much better signal with this. 1 bar in my room now 3-4 bars consistent

    Thanks :]
    Yeah...they say it's one of the hardest engineering majors (I think chemical is harder), but that's because you have to pretty much imagine the electrons since they're too small to see. It's really just a lot of math (or at least so far it has been which I love *cough cough* my username :] )
    I did consider mechanical engineering when I had to pick a specialization, I don't know why, but EE just seemed more for me

    On topic :] :
    Yes...Radio works fine (and so does my market)...I personally haven't noticed much (if any) of a difference in signal, but I think that's because where I am, we always tend to have good Verizon signal

    Updated 1st post with information to fix market issues after flash.

    Off-Topic: Thats great math-uhhh-saurus. im a computer information systems major. programming AND hardware. alot of math for me as well but i love it ha ha.

    off-topic again: do you believe people can change?
    ugh, what a bitch.

    cool!...yeah...I suck at programming (only classes I've taken are in MatLab and C++)...hopefully I can avoid it when I get out of college :D I really just prefer the hardware part...it's so sad though :[ I've almost completed all of my required math courses...might try and take a few more and get a minor in it

    yes, but I'm confused as to where this question came from lol

    Followed the instructions and no problems - Works GREAT!

    Just someone pissed me off. She wronged me a long time ago i forgave her...later on i wronged her by accident.....and thought its been a year and a half she still wont talk to me/ accept my apology. i mean i take responsibility for my actions and all but yeah... she used to be one of my best friends. just wanted to patch things up. we had a great bond. oh well.

    BACK ON TOPIC NOW.......its coming.....sooner than expected....

    I followed the instructions outlined by death2all110. Initially was able to load back into android and raptor v.01. Market did not work, as expected. went back to recovery and cleared caches again. Got stuck in a boot loop at the "Android" boot. Tried clearing caches again, no go. Had to reflash the raptor ROM to fix. still says MVB radio, not sure if it updated or not.

    It updated. the only way it will change is if you applied the update via OTA trident and a few others are looking into this bug

    So far my wife noticed better battery life. Cell Standby is lower and her time without signal is 0%

    Are you getting a better signal because the bar graph say so or are you actually getting better reception (signal strength, better coverage, etc)?

    Is the increase in number of bars showing up in better/more coverage and higher data bandwidth?

    Been lurking on these forums for quite a bit, but after all the revelations from Math, death, and others, I thought I would chime in...

    I'm an EE. Currently working in a big joint venture (google fab club). If I was Math, I would change my major right away... EE is a dying science. Everything is going offshore! I work with software and hardware (advanced semiconductors). There are fewer people in the lab everyday. And I find myself doing overseas telecons more and more.

    BTW... ironic really... I write software and use it to test and debug chips. These 'radio' chips (in 2 years time) will go into a certain brand of phone that keeps the doctor away. ;) LOL.

    what did that partial hint pertain to??

    Is there any reason at all to do this if my phone works just fine as is?
