    If this isn't appropriate for whatever reason feel free to remove it, but I thought starting a different thread to see who has had a noticeable increase in speed with different PRL's and what region of the country they are from. This may help others choose which one may work better for them. Currently for myself 60686 did not help, but 60683 did, and im in Upstate New York.

    I'm using 60686... and it gives me a way better signal at home here in charlotte, nc but suffers while I'm on the move throughout the city and I haven't tried any other prl's so far... but I'm going to start experimenting whenever I get the time

    I live in Northern Michigan in the middle of the manistee national forest
    The only internet one can get here is 3g i plan on trying every one
    These were tested one after another with the phone siting in the same spot
    i ran speedtest about 5 times each prl

    Heres what i have so far

    orginal boost prl signal 1 to 2 bars using speedtest app .50 to .73/mbs ping 386 ms

    60686.prl no bars to 1 bar sometimes 2 the bars were white no 3g stayed on white 1x

    60683.prl -- signal showed about 2 bars steady sometimes +1 bar 1.23 to 1.32 mb/s ping 310 m/s ? full bars when coming back from screen off but then drops back to 2 bars?

    60711.prl ping 317-344 ms signal steady 2 bars some times steady 3 bars intill speed test app was launched then droped back to 2 speed .73 to 1.23mb/s mostly around 1.11 mb/s

    60681.prl ping 324 to 345 ms speed .90 to 1.23 mb/s mostly 1.23 mb/s signal 1 to 2 bars mostly 2 bars steady

    60680.prl ping 342 ms to 364 ms (mostly 3.63 ms) .56 to .72 mb/s ( 1.02 mb/s when 3g was full) signal switched between 2 and 3 bars constently 3g signal was only full on one test

    60679.prl ping 344ms to 347 ms (mostly 347ms) speed first test.38 mb/s after that .92 to 1.27 mb/s signal sometimes full 3g signal 2 bars steady sometimes 3

    60678.prl ping 460ms to 494ms 430ms speed .30 to .44mb/s signal 3g low steady 1 bar sometimes 2

    im using 60683 because of the better speed even tho some places in the house i have no signal now

    60683 works great for me. I'm next to Albany, NY. I travel all over NY towards penn and mass, and I only lose it in the valleys or open plains where there are no towers whatsoever.

    Ping 206 Down .35 mbps up .69 mbps Not the greatest test but this is at 7:30 at night.

    60685 has seemed to work best for me in Miami, FL, I've tried the others 60711,60683, and 60686 and have been getting inconsistent 3G.

    Anyone tested in N.J? And if i wanted too which # should i start with?
  12. roly947

    roly947 Member

    What I did was started out with the most recent one, then went backwards til I got the one that worked best in the areas i roam around in. I'm kinda lucky in that sense that I have a laptop with me and I'm on the road, so I'll try different ones in the same area and look for the best results. I aslo use an app called Open Signal Maps that shows me the closest towers, which tower I'm working out of (real time)and also does speedtesting as a perk.

    Hey guys,

    Not sure if this is news but I returned my phone back to stock last night so I can send it out to ZTE for replacement, but because I am not sending it until next week I went through the software upgrdade etc and checked the PRL and it is listed as 61008, so it seems Boost has added another PRL to their lists...I left it on there although I was so tempted to change it but any PRL works for me at home and around my area, but its my workplace that sucks which is why I have tried several. I wonder if other people have seen the new PRL and how its working for them

    Just a theory but maybe the 61008 prl enables access to 4g... in preperation for the new evo

    Maybe but it sucks on my phone, but I am having problems with my warp and will be sending it to ZTE in the next few days(or the next two weeks) so I really cant give a review on it either way but that would make sense

    I just reverted/updated the prl to stock and as far as speed goes... I guess I'm throttled at 512k because the speedtest won't go any higher and pretty much flat lines around there but I don't know for sure... but for a signal I'm getting around 3 or 4 bars here at school... I haven't tested it anywhere else yet

    I am new to the whole flashing prls but last night I flashed what I understand to be "the latest",or most recent, Sprint 61085 prl over from the stock Boost 61007 and immediately noticed huge differences in reception and speed. I never tested the stock prl but this is what I get with the new prl. And I am north of Albany, New York.

    I was really curious and decided to test both the stock Boost 61007 and Sprint 61085.

    The Sprint prl is better for me. I am 10 miles north of Albany, New York.

    Tampa Bay Area. With 60686 at times it would not connect 3G after unlocking screen. Would have to reboot to get 3G going again. So far for me 60683 works best. Don't loose my 3G after unlocking screen and signal is good. Still have to try the other PRL's.

    hey can you compare you results with 60683... I'm upstate ny as well and kind of settled with that one but it seems I may have better choices...where did you find 61085? can you link please..

    Here is my personal stash nOve


    I have tried 60683, 60686, and 61007 of course. Just found 61085 today will be testing it tomorrow. I get the best signal with 60683 here in Winston Salem NC so far, but 61007 seems to provide better 3g speeds even with changes to Vocoders and Chevan's build.prop tweaks.

    I saw mention earlier of 61008 as a PRL for Boost, but I have yet to find a download for it.

    There is no download... just update your prl and you will have it
