    Wipe cache in recovery before flashing. You should only need to flash once. Per rom of course...

    It's worked fine for me in AOKP and CM11. First flash every time.

    I did full wipes every time and it took a couple of tries for me to get it to work. After that it went smoothly so I figure it must've been something unique to me giving me issues.

    Im looking into this. The binary needs updating and I think I found something.

    On a fresh install try to install the ROM first...let it boot. You may not even get data connection, let it sit, then reboot recovery and flash the fix.

    See if that works

    Updated the OP. Changed to version R2. Only change is updating the update-binary in it. So version R1 have the same changes, you just wont get the warning on flashing with R2.

    Also I found that you may want to Flash your ROM then let it boot first before installing the LTE fix. I found it didnt 'take' until I flashed ROM (Gapps), rebooted recovery, flashed fix.

    The only time I've found this fix not working is with MIUI roms. No idea why. So I keep this one for everything else and the old fix for MIUI. :)

    Were you also flashing the kernel they have posted to flash? If you flash that kernel it won't boot. There are two threads on xda for miui. I had no issues with the newest build on the older of the two. I'll try the newest build in the other thread and see if I can get it to boot up.

    This link is a MIUI build I know works. V 4.6.6. It's the one I usually use.

    If you are running a TouchWiz ROM, try updating the profile. That can restore data in many cases. If you are running an AOSP ROM like CM11 ,etc, try flashing back to a TouchWiz ROM, update the profile and then flash back to the AOSP ROM.

    Something else you might want to check. Did you flash the Sprint ND8 or the Boost NDC bootloader? The reason I ask is because you must be running a custom kernel for data to work if your baseband doesn't match your bootloader. You must be running a custom kernel to run the NDC baseband with the ND8 bootloader and vice versa (Boost bootloader with Sprint modem).


    I flashed the Sprint ND8 bootloader which comes with the ND8 baseband (modem). I can update my profile and it enables data. Most of the time data is working after the ROM flash but occasionally a profile update is needed. Also, If I decide to flash the Boost NDC modem I must be running a custom kernel in order for data to work. Most all of custom ROMs have a custom kernel so flashing between modems is easy and data should work. If not, a profile update should definitely fix it.

    I hope this helps.
  17. I have d2lte & i can flash any other ROMS data is working when I flash Nameless ROM I don't have data
  18. wetbiker7

    Hmm, ok then. The issue has to be with the ROM then if you can run other d2lte ROMs and get data working. Sorry but if the APN fix isn't working I don't know what to tell you. The only thing I can recommend now is to check out the Nameless ROM thread or Google + page if they have one and inquire about the data issue there.

    Nameless is one of the few ROMs that I haven't tried. I may do a little research on it when I get a chance and see if I can find anything regarding the data issue. I'll let you know if I find a fix. I'll probably take a look at it tomorrow.

    I also tried flashing nameless and had the same results. I tried it also with the apn fix with no luck .
  20. Thanks I went to back to 9/12 build data is working so what I'm doing is downloading nightly & weekly build to see which build had data stopped working in cause so far from 23-28 no data

    I just did some reading and users are reporting that the Nameless ROM does indeed have data issues. Some get no data while others can't get LTE.

    If it's an APN problem then this fix should take care of the issues. Looks like it may be a bug in the ROM itself.

  22. Okay so from 9-14 & 28 there's no data
  23. no answer to the problem from what you found
  24. wetbiker7

    wetbiker7 Extreme Android User

    LOL. Nope. They don't even know what's causing the data issue over in the ROM's main thread. The developer is gonna have to find out what's causing it.

    Someone needs to give him a logcat. That would help him out a lot.

    I've been having issues with my phone for days, and I think this thread is related to my issue. I have a Galsxy S3 that was with Sprint, and I moved to Boost. I immediately noticed that my data was not working on Cyanogenmod 10.2.1. I flashed back to stock and stock recovery, and it worked, and I'm working up from there. I tried Cyanogenmod 10.0.0 and the appropriate gapps, simultaneously using TWRP, and data was not working again. I found this thread, and tried loading the Boost APN Fix, but to no avail; I still don't have data. Steps:

    1. Install Cyanogenmod and gapps
    2. Boot into Cyanogenmod; no data
    3. Boot into recovery, and load the Boost APN Fix R2
    4. Boot into Cyanogenmod; still no data

    I'm frustrated, but do not want to stay with stock. Any more thoughts on how I can debug this? I'm going to restore my 10.2.1 install, so I can look at the APNs (can't in 10.0.0), but I feel a bit stuck.
