Thanks for the combined! Worked like a CHAMP!
new radios seem good to me,too,despite bein on the crappy leak RUU. i left 4g on all day and it worked fantastically,but ive only got 9 hours 46 min on this charge,and the last 2 hours of it are only because im back home in wifi and havent touched it. if i had stayed out in 4g id have barely gotten over 7 hours.
I'm experiencing wonderful battery life since flashing this new radio.
Fair warning, it could be Imoseyon's 3.5.8 kernel I switched to, but I switched 2 days ago and didn't have these results Friday pre radio
My phone has been on WiFi all day, fairly heavy use, lots of calls (trying to track down a HP Touchpad ) browsing, texts, twitter, etc. I'm at 7h 23m up and 82% battery
edit: pretty much the same usage minus the calls, with 4G on for 2 hours, 11h 16m up 68% battery
No numbers but I'm on imo .8 and battery seems about the same perhaps a bit better but nothing outstanding
New radio, and 3.5.8 have been great for me battery wise as well. 3.5.11 I could squeeze out about 12 hours normally, back on 3.5.8 and I'm plugging the phone in at like 15+ with to 35% - 40% left.
It was getting to the point I kept checking for apps that maybe changed settings on me or something. After I read other people having the same experience, I switched back. Standby especially would kill me on 3.5.11, where now its back to practically stationary.
Since I'm kernel stupid I never made it to .11,lol. I read this stuff and thot "oh crap I Better change back,too" checked my SD card and it was still .8 :eek :
Everything still good for you ibrick? I haven't booted into hboot yet because my md5 didn't match worms exactly, but then I saw your post and my md5 match yours exactly (2 extra 4) am I safe to flash this new radio?
I used worms radio package. No problems here.
I also tried the ROM cause,well, I'm bored. I could NOT get wireless tether to work. Back to uber bamf p3.
Working like a champ. Very stable radio, signal is slightly improved over the last leak it seems.
I verified the md5 on my comp as well and got the same as I posted, so 3 downloads from 2 sources all matched. If the md5 you get matches mine, flash away. I also posted a link to this thread on rootzwiki, and no one mentioned it not matching, so I'd say you're safe.
Currently at 393 downloads
With the new radio (vs the MR2 OTA) I've been finding that when I manually switch my phone from 4G to 3G, it takes a LONG time for it to find and connect to the 3G network. For now... I've flashed back to MR2 OTA and everything seems good again.
Edit: Nevermind, it seems like it was just something over the weekend. The MR2 OTA radio was exhibiting the same behavior until Sunday night after which I reapplied this new radio and everything seems okay now.
Unless you flashed radios in hboot you are still on the new radios.
Worm, Scotty, iBrick, McLabia, whoever else answers what will we be calling these radios MR3, 726, 802, GB?
I've just been calling them 704, 802 etc. The mr2 mr2.5 kinda screwed it up when the official mr2 was pushed.
yeah thats what ive been doin too. i have to look at my "how to id radios" chart to figure out what baseband was what nickname. im pretty easily confused,tho
So, are you referring to the radios by the last set of digits in the LTE radio version?
I think the last one was 704 from the cdma radio lye was 703. Which would make these the 726, but I think people are referring to it as 802
that is correct. further info see this post:
I just want to clarify....I recently used revolutionary to get root, still running Stock rom 2.2.1 radio's 1.39.00.0627r, 0.01.69.0625r. If I run the RUU executable will I still have root and the updated stock rom and radio's?
...I'm honestly planning on trying either the uber bamf p3 rom. Should I just flash the rom, then flash these new radio's and be done with it?? Thanks
I would suggest you flash the radio and rom not bothering with the RUU, generally the less you need to flash in hboot the safer you are. And the new radio should be safe for you to flash, I have not had issues with it and haven't seen reports of anyone who has.
Great thank you, Would you suggest rom first, then radio without rebooting? or other way around? I know to wipe dalvik cache, full wipe,and all that etc..
Well you have to flash the radio in hboot. I would suggest downloading both and installing the radio, rebooting then install the rom. After the radio install you need to delete the PG05IMG.zip off the SD so you can get back to recovery thru hboot.
ill second this. if you really have no intention of running the stock rom,just flash the radios. flashing the full ruu is more risky,and more time consuming. plus youll have to reinstall your recovery,and flash superuser to be rooted on that rom,as running the .exe will unroot you(but leave your s-off).not a big deal if you want to run it a few days and check it out,but if you mainly want the radios,just flash those and then flash the rom you want to run.
Just for anyone who's considering this, I flashed the new radios (thanks to worms combined zip he posted for us, and have had no issues whatsoever...haven't noticed a difference from the previous leak to be honest, but no issues at all
