    Are you rooted with s on Thats what ocn got from the first post? What is your h boot

    Most rooted roms like mikg show the true speed like 1x. The stock rom shows 3g even when you are at 1x speeds

    like i said in the guide yuou will need to use captn method to get s-off. just skip the part about unlocking the bootloader since you already have done that. the link the mikem0269 gave is the actual guide from capt throwback.

    Yeah ill check that out when I get back home. I've noticed that even though I went from home to work I'm still on 1x. Data speed is a bit faster here were I work but still no 3G.

    curious what is your radio(baseband)? you might need to update your radios. also you might want to update prl and profile as well.

    and we will be here if you need us. please feel free to ask away if you have questions.

    2 15 00 12 19 is the baseband version. I did the prl and profile update were I work since like I said the speed was a bit better but still 1x and no 3g. Honestly its not a big deal but I'm just curious if its a bug or I just have crappy service.

    ok you have the latest radios so i would update your prl and profile.

    and keep in mind the 1x is shown because with mikg and all .custom roms will always show you the tru signal strength of your mobile data connection. before on stock it will always show 3g when it is only 1x.
