I'm on CM7 nightlies and my radio is at 2.15.00.11.19 do I need to update, I'm new at this ?
Wow that number looks newer than the new radios i just flashed. Im not sure but some one that does will chime in soon Im sure
The latest radio should be 2.15.00.0808
I'm not exactly sure of the numerical system that is used to determine if it's the latest one, but I'm 100% sure the .0808 is the latest.
The following was posted by Virus over at XDA:
[ROM] [STOCK ROOTED] RUU_SuperSonic_GB_Sprint_WWE_4.53.651.1_Radio_2.15 .00.0808_NV_2
thats an older one....you can update...
here is the list in order if you want to see how old it is....
[ Radios ][ 7-4 ] All EVO Radio, WiMAX, PRI, NV & HBoot versions - xda-developers
the newest one isnt on here though....
the op's radios is from the froyo ota. it is not necessary that you update them. but a lot of people are saying that their 3g signal has improved by updating them.
I'm on CM7.1, not nightlies, and I have the same. I'd say you're fine, because I feel like I'm fine.
Opps.. Looks like I'll need to be upgrading my radios soon - gotta improve 3g in my area. I always get nervous doing that....
so... update to the new radio that isn't listed there to improve 3g, so how do i do it? and which one do i use 3g is kinda crappy in Des Moines
well you can do it one of a few ways. you can do the radio combo found here:EVO_Radio_2.15.00.05.02_WiMAX_27243_PRI_NV_2.15_00 3
or you can just flash the most current radio:EVO_Radio_2.15.00.08.08.zip
either way you should make sure that you have plenty of battery and whatever you do DO NOT PULL THE BATTERY OUT while it is installing. you will brick your phone if you do.
delete this post lol....
you beat me, so im erasing mine lol...
What do ya think? Does the wimax update provide much improvement compared to the 0808 radio?
Flashing radios is one of the 'rooted' things that still gets my adrenaline pumping.
just reboot into recovery and flash from sd card do i wipe anything ?
yeah i understand your trepidation on radios as well. but i did the combo update and it went smoothly. i then downgraded my pri to 1.77 because wth the virus kingdom rom, it was recommended to do so. have not upgraded it and no issues with it.
as far as 4g goes i have no basis for comparison because i just recently moved from santa barbara which has no 4g to LA which does. i do get decent 4g signal with the updated radios. so that is up to you.
I believe you have to wipe cache and maybe davlik... It's been too long.
I'll need to re-read all this stuff in the dummies guide :\
actually i do not think that you do, but i did it anyways out of habit. i always play it safe when it comes to my radios.
Cool. I'll probably try one of those this week.
I get 4g about once a week, but if the newer radio has a significant improvement to 3g, I might go with that one.... the choices continue. lol.
I wiped dalvic cashe and cashe 3 times and then flashed all went well.
Cool. Notice any improvements (in the few minutes you've had it?)
