    Ew I get -109 dbm at my house. I can make/receive calls fine, but it's in this crappie mini valley dead zone. My BFs parents get no reception with AT&T.

    The absolute lowest mine ever was on a good day was 83. 93-111 or so was my norm. Mind you, it said that even when I had no 3G reception with grey bars.

    Just flashed it. Booting up now...

    I don't see any immediate changes based on the About Phone / Status numbers.

    Edit: The Open Signal app is showing SIGNIFICANTLY stronger LTE signal. I don't know whether to trust that or not yet. Other forum posts seems to be reporting good improvements for some. But some seem to be experiencing a worse signal reading. Only time will truly tell.

    I am not hoping for any better signal numbers so much as voice and data connection a few more miles away from cell sites than I can get currently. As I pointed out earlier in the thread my wifes charge had 4g connection in a fringe 4g area here where my GN couldn't hold 4g and had to revert to 3g which has real good coverage everywhere here.

    Even my iPad was dead lol. Everything is still in boxes! I've settled on plugging in my iPad to this cool radio my BF got me and watching hulu. Only sucks that it's in portrait mode :(

    How is everyone elses MTP file transfers? It took me like 2 hours yesterday to transfer 7GB of audiobooks. Then late last night it took almost 50 minutes to transfer 1GB.

    What is everyone elses speeds when doing this?

    Also if anyone can still help with reboot-from-recover.p (that you turned into a .bak file) I would truly, truly appreciate helping out.

    Any guesses on how long it takes to upload a 23 minute video to youtube?

    Anyone? Anyone?

    Right now I'm at 4% with 322 minutes left LOL

    I'm sure you made a backup like I did before flashing.

    :D

    Hmm, Lifehacker links are usually my thing (well, really just posting links in general :D), but I can't seem to recall the one you're mentioning. Still, I'll take the drink anyway! Haha. ;)

    Nice. :) Seems like people are getting mixed results so far, I'll wait a little until they're more stable and proven.
