Just flashed it. 3G seemed to pick up quicker down here in the basement and seems to be holding a bar above what it was before could just be placebo effect

** dbm seems to be better as well was average about 90-95 now its hanging at 83dbm 4asu

If those preliminary results are accurate, the 4.0.3 update (assuming it includes this radio update) will be a great improvement for people with signal issues!

it seems like a pretty good start if anything. Hopefully it will be rolling out soon for those with issues and help increase the signal strength for everyone, not to mention this should help with battery life also.

Wow. dBm is up by 10-15, and my 4g speeds are 50% improved.

Seriously. Testing before and after and I haven't budged an inch.

According to the first link, you would need to be rooted to go through the process. Hopefully they roll it out soon though

Im assuming that I can flash the CWM recovery image in my adb folder, install the zip, then reboot. Or do I need to permanently flash CWM?

Thanks. Is there a way to backup the current radio? I'm coming from the Inc so flashing radios seems to be different from what I'm used to ( didn't flash them from CWM )...

You should be able to softboot CWM and flash the radios that way yes, just like if you rooted by softbooting CWM so you keep the original recovery.

Just flashed. Seems to be about the same to me. Maybe a slight improvement but I wasn't experiencing signal issues to begin with.

Wow, this completely killed my connection (3G), I'm down to .35 - .60 Mbps. I was at around 1.7 - 1.8 Mbps just minutes before, which is my normal speed. Will flashing Fabs Rom get me back to the old radio? If not how do I get it back?

The old radio is in the stock images that Google posted and can be flashed through fastboot.

is it possible to flash just the radio? or will that flash back to complete stock?

if it goes back to complete stock, can we just restore nandroid to get back to where we were then?

That will only change the radios, nothing else. Just make sure to do a nandroid any time you flash.

There should be no reason you will be wiped with a radio flash. Perhaps we should sleep on this one? Let the reports come in. Remember that a radio is totally separate from a rom. If you just can't wait the reports look promising so far.

This looks like a recovery flash, not fastboot.

unzip the two radio files from the stock image. place them in the folder with adb.exe. open a command prompt.

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot flash radio radio-toro-i515.ek02.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot flash radio-cdma radio-cdma-toro-i515.ek05.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Then, click the power button on START.

Guys as with most mods and ESPECIALLY until we all get a feel for this G Nex. It is good to make a fresh NANDROID backup before doing any modding. So that you can restore back to where you were before trying this or any mods.

Nandroid will do you no good with a radio flash. Just flashed it, same speed test and dbm. Looks safe. More tomorrow.

Edit: Yeah, it's not looking so hot. If you didn't flash I'd def hold off for now. I'm not sure if the huge batt drain is due to vzw data outage or the new radio but I flashed back to the old one.

I have added this thread to the Root Guide sticky.

Just something everyone should note, if you are wanting to accept OTA updates installing this radio may prevent you from doing so.

If you wish to flash back to the prior radio(s) and/or bootloader do the following.

1. Download this file it is the factory image from google and can be found here verify the MD5sum is bafc4d3c5faa9822f76a5313fc91f743

2. Extract the file and move the radio(s) img files to the same folder your adb.exe and fastboot.exe files are in.

3. With the phone powered on and with USB debugging on plug it into the computer.

4. Hold shift and right click on the folder you placed the img files in. Choose "Open command prompt here"

5. Execute the following commands in the command prompt:

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash radio radio-toro-i515.ek02.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot flash radio-cdma radio-cdma-toro-i515.ek05.img
6. Reboot your phone by highlighting “Start” and pressing the lock switch and you have restored to the previous radios.

Note: If you wish to only revert 1 radio then leave out the fastboot commands for the other radio. If you are wanting to play it safe and revert the bootloader too then run these commands as well (also move the img file to the folder with the radios)

Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-toro-primekk15.img

Not much of a change for me. My dBm reading at the moment is -98 whereas it was usually over 100 before. LTE speed test gives me 12785 kbps down/5048 up.

The big test will be at work tomorrow where I keep dropping to one bar and occasionally lose my internet connection completely.

Default some results

Flashed this a few minutes ago. My 3G signal at home has been decent but usually not used since wifi is available. True test will be tomorrow at work where I spend most days with no signal (as in -120 dBm). Some quick results:

Old radio:
Date*************|*Download*|*Upload*|*Latency
12/20/2011-22:52*
|*1285*****|*685****|*113
12/20/2011-22:51*|*1215*****|*760****|*266
12/20/2011-22:50*|*1332*****|*316****|*236

New radio:
Date*************|*Download*|*Upload*|*Latency
12/20/2011-23:09
*|*1564*****|*225****|*207
12/20/2011-23:06
*|*1020*****|*527****|*114
12/20/2011-23:05
*|**771*****|*369****|*190

(apologies for the formatting)
Doesn't really answer questions definitively but figured I'd share in case people were wondering. The dBm stayed roughly the same, between -80 and -100.

I've always heard you should have a somewhat full charge when you flash thing. I don't know how true it is but I usually will wait until my phone is at least at 90% before I flash something just in case.

I will be needing to revert to the old radio. This new one was marginally better speed wise. Same signal strength. Im thinking this is just margin of error. However, a couple hours later and I have no network connection.

I have service here but my speeds are still extremely slow.

Edit: I flashed back to the old radios and my speed is back to normal.

MORNING HEADLINE: VZW data network crashes due to an unauthorized release of a test radio update on LTE devices. Story still developing.

Haha, oh no. Will this enable me to force LTE only on my radio?
