    Okay I see what you are talking about now. Along with Chingy's OP at Rootzwiki having "DO NOT POST THIS AT XDA" on it.

    Looks like chingy released the radio and someone over at XDA found something completely different that may be able to get to to stock nonrooted if you need for some reason.

    I remember when the root ecosystem was easy and I didn't have to check 5 different sites for info, but at least now I have something to flash tonight! Thanks again Worm!

    Same for CM7. Everything is rock solid so far.

    Very happy Chingy posted this!

    Is it the same as on the link page? It is not the same as the one in the OP either.

    I just double checked the MD5 and noticed the one in my OP had one number wrong. I updated it so there should be no further issues. Sorry about that

    Kudos to you for not blindly flashing :cool: it would have been ok in this situation,since the reference number on the OP was a typo. If the md5 had been off because of a bad or incomplete download,flashing could have resulted in non working radios or worse :eek:

    Good job,hopefully new rooters will learn from it :)

    I was referring to data loss, where no signal.

    Settings, about phone, battery use, cell standby.

    It will show a percentage when the phone has been without data. This radio is MUCH better. Previous radio would be about 1%, no data for every hour phone was on.

    i stand corrected :) sorry ibrick, i dint realize that number was a "time without data" measurement. ive never been real concerned with it,as it hasnt seemd to affect much as far as battery life. i remember the eris and the ally being plauged with the "50% bug" so ive always been concerned more with the "time without signal" number.

    i just thot that the high cell standby was an AOSP quirk that hadnt been ironed out yet,since running sense roms its never that high.

    Battery life seems to have settled down for me. I've lost about 5% in the last 3 hours. Light browsing, Google constantly syncing, WiFi on 4G/GPS off, Twitter pulling updates every 5 minutes and listening to music. Pretty good, IMO. Usually would have dropped about 10-13% on 0627.

    I definitely think AOSP ROMs are part of it, and its still not perfect, but for me at least, this radio is an improvement. Not once while checking email or forums etc did I get the 'check your internet connection' message.

    Granted, its only been one day, but I'm impressed so far.

    I'm still hoping the battery settles, did burn through more than usual today..

    Although I used the internet a lot more often since I wasn't getting error messages every couple minutes so gotta account for that too..

    I need to charge up and do a battery calibrate before I can comment on that. Everything else seems good to go on bamf RC4.9.
