    I am looking for a recommendation for a radio ROM that might help with my crappy reception. Wifi works pretty good but CDMA connection sucks. I dont get 4g LTE service in Denver yet, so I switched mode to CDMA only. I rarely get more than 2 bars, usually 1. I often see 1x instead of 3x associated with my signal strength.

    I am running the following configuration:
    Android Version: 4.1.2
    ROM: CM10.0.0 Jewel
    Kernel: 3.0.51-geb1844c
    Baseband: 1.12.11.0809

    Looking for any suggestions on modifying my Radio ROM or configuration that can help with my signal. I am 2 miles outside of Downtown Denver and my reception is crap.

    I appreciate any help.

    My data was horrible on CM10. I loved CM10 to death but let it go. Running MeanBean now and very happy with data.

    Assuming the baseband all that other jazz follow sequential order with the numbers, and in comparison to my numbers, you're a bit behind. I would flash the one of the opted roms based of the latest its update. Are you S-on or off? While on the Sense Rom, update profile and prl.

    There's also a firmware update around here somewhere. I'm s-off and was able use that to update my radios and such. I'm not sure if/how that works with s-on devices though.

    Doesn't look like it, that would be 1.12.11.1119, baseband earlier was .0809.

    On phone, can't link to the latest. :(

    Mike,
    Did you have data issues with the factory ROM? I have had them from day one.

    Am I just better off switching from S-ON to S-OFF? If so, is there a preferred way and any special considerations with the HTC EVO 4G LTE? If someone could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

    Does anyone have a link to the RUU file that I don't have to signup for, in order to access?

    Thanks.

    S-off offers more freedom to run your phone the way you see fit, but it's not entirely necessary. The process can be a bit of a pain for some, but it's not impossible. :)

    well that will be up to you. you get more freedom with s-off then s-on. you can update your firmware with s-off (s-on you can't).

    and as of right now you will need to use dirty racun to get s-off. there is no other method. use the guide that granite linked you to. i would read the guide in full before attempting to root your phone.
