Hello all, I'm very new to android, just upgraded to the HTC Evo 4G with Sprint last week. I quickly realized sense was not for me and wanted to try out a new rom, so I rooted. I used this process (unrevoked3) to root: Complete guide: How to root, backup, and flash new ROM and kernel on your HTC EVO I went with CM7 as my ROM and I like it. I definitely would stick with it, but about a day after the root, I noticed data speeds stuck at 1X (I believe they were always at 1X, I just always used wi-fi). Now, I understand this is common, but I've tried many steps to resolve the problem based on a day and a half of searching forums. I setup the rom, fresh, as a sense-based backup to perform the troubleshooting steps: - I updated the profile and PRL - I used the ##3282# trick to change the data type to automatic instead of CDMA. Neither of these helped. As a baseline, I used speedtest.net mobile app to test speeds using the same server closest to me. In CM7, which said it was using 1X, I was getting less than 100k on average; in fresh, which said it was using 3G, I was getting the same, never over 100-120k. So, thinking that this problem was specific to my phone, I made my way through the unroot process outlined here: [How To] Unroot and return to stock [RUU Method] - Android Forums This worked for me and I got back to a factory state. I expected speedtest to tell me the same, but it did not! I now get speeds (from the same server) nearing 1mb and the phone says I'm using 3G. Using this suggestion, I did see an increase in my 3G speed using the factory ROM: (Fix) Downloads for Music apps and faster 3G - xda-developers This is a big issue for me. On one hand, I want to be using CM7, I got used to it, but on the other hand, we do not have 4G here so 3G is all I get for the extra $10/month. I simply cannot use CM7 and 1X, the 3G has to work. As such, I'd like to find a way to fix the 3G in CM7 knowing that it works fine in the factory state. With free data roaming on sprint, I basically have 3G coverage everywhere around me, but I also live in the center of a large sprint 3G area. I don't know what the 3G speeds were before rooting because I only used it a day or two before I rooted, always using wi-fi. It's possible the process of unrooting fixed the issue and going back to CM7 would be better, but I can't assume this and am asking for assistance. I know everyone seems to say that the root process does not have an effect on data speeds, but my experience appears to contradict this. I'm hoping there's something I can do (or maybe did wrong), so I'm reaching out here. I tried posting at the XDA forums, they tell me because I'm new or not a developer, I'm not good enough to post a request for help on their forums. I feel that my problem is different from others because I can get valid 3G speeds using the factory non-rooted rom but any rooted roms appear to be providing 1X speeds. I was not able to find any forum topics similar to this, but would be willing to look at any suggestions others have. Thanks in advance for your help, I hope I can return to CM 7 soon.
