    Long story short, I had accepted the OTA back in July so I have the new and radios.. I flashed cm7 to my TB and now i only get wifi or 1x connections.. no 3g/4g.

    I just flashed these two radios:

    [*]From the 2.07.605.0 RUU: 2nd gingerbread leak
    md5: a9e6e712b0556d8e702da21788f04da9
    md5: 08f21245944acc304723bce27998dc40

    no improvement, still only 1x connection.

    any ideas?

    if you get cell signal at all, it should not be a radio issue.
    i would try getting LTE switch from the market, and make sure you are on LTE only (if you are in a strong 4G area) if it doesn't switch, it may be a SIM issue.

    if you can't get it working on CM7, i would try a sense ROM and see if that fixes it. if it does fix it, i would re-download CM7 again, wipe data, flash CM7 and see if that fixes it. it could have been a bad download.

    if you have 4G on a sense rom, and not on CM7, you may want to try a different kernal...not really sure if that would help at all or not, but it may.

    Ok.. so.. weird but.. after letting my phone rest over night I see now that I have 3g, at least. I'm nit in a 4g area so that remains to be seen. I do have other issues that I'm noticing, though. Biggest issue I have is that calls do not seem to ring through. Business partner tried calling me multiples times this morning and I see them in the missed call log but they never notified me or sounded the ringtone. Same thing when I tried calling myself from multiple other phones. Also, my home button isn't working... I get the haptic feedback for it but it doesn't edit me from the app or anything. I just read a forum post on cyanogen's forum saying that it might have to do with having used titanium backup to restore a system setting that appeared to have been Bluetooth settings.. over there it was recommended to wipe and reflash and not restore that setting.

    Any recommendations on how to fix either or both of those without wiping everything?

    Much as I love CM7 on my NC, I wouldn't install a ROM on my phone that can't tolerate system settings restore. Intolerance of a system settings restore means that the ROM interprets the same basic settings data as other ROMs differently than other ROMs do. I don't find that to be the case on all ROMs, and I'm fairly selective, that's why I run a relatively less famous ROM. I don't dedicate my life to re-tweaking my preferences, that's what I have Titanium for.

    The situation is different on a Nook running off the SD card, as far as it's concerned it has run CM7 its whole life, there's no other ROM's lost luggage messing anything up. And this is why I can use a Wii Controller with my NC, so it all balances out in the wash.

    Now if only an OEM would release a card booted phone... Sandisk and PNY employees could all retire in a month.

    No, you should never restore system settings with titanium. Even when going from sense to sense roms differences within the apps can and will cause issues. You were trying to restore sense settings on an AOSP rom the apps are totally different.
