Ok to start, if I posted this incorrectly or in the wrong place I apologize. My question is about 2 issues that may, or may not be related. So, when I noticed that there was a rooted version of gb I updated the os and radios. Must say gb is very quick, but I couldn't seem to tether my laptop (never had a problem before) using the sprint hotspot, or the wireless tether app. Needless to say that wasn't cool so I restored my nandroid to the rom I was running. I'm aware that the radios need to be flashed separate from the rom, I have the files from xda to (if I understand correctly) to return my radios to what they were. Now, here's where it gets odd, and yes I checked and still have my rsa keys. I live according to the open signals map app, between two towers. One 640+ meters away, the other is 4000+ meters away. I called Sprint. The person on the phone says the same, "your right on top of it, should be kicking ass with signal " well yes and no. For some reason the phone jumps from one to the other tower constantly, which makes me think that could be the reason my 3g speeds are so slow and I'm dropping calls. Also, the Sprint rep said that there was something on my phone causing the problem and not their network. I've been working on figuring it out and nothing has fixed it, but I did notice in the system files, odd files with a date of 1969 on them!? I'm currently running Koni's elite lll with a 4.3.4 cfs&sbc netarchy kernel, with the most recent radios. Is there anyway to get my speeds back (I've tried Mr. ED's speed fix), tried updating my profile and prl, haven't flashed the radios back but will do of I need to. But is there any way that my issue could be those 1969 files. (Thinking about how the rep said it was the phone, not the network causing the issue) Or is there some way to stop the phone from bouncing between the 2 towers? Any ideas would be great. I have the 2.2 sprint lover's rom and the 2.2 ruu zip file both with the radios included. Theory being to just flash either and see if it gets rid of those 1969 files by putting everything back to as close to stock 2.2 as I can get without unrooting. If not, I could always take it to a store. If I do that though, I can see my phone coming back with gb and no root. Thanks in advance to everybody, without this site and the great people here I've learned more about my phone than Sprint could tell me in ten yes.
