    for anyone not rooted how do you get into fastboot? And is there a certain order these need to be flashed?

    Can someone post a quick tutorial on how to flash a radio via Fastboot. I do not have CWM, but am rooted. Thanks.

    Just flashed it. 3G seemed to pick up quicker down here in the basement and seems to be holding a bar above what it was before could just be placebo effect :)

    ** dbm seems to be better as well was average about 90-95 now its hanging at 83dbm 4asu

    it seems like a pretty good start if anything. Hopefully it will be rolling out soon for those with issues and help increase the signal strength for everyone, not to mention this should help with battery life also.

    Wow. dBm is up by 10-15, and my 4g speeds are 50% improved.

    Seriously. Testing before and after and I haven't budged an inch.

    According to the first link, you would need to be rooted to go through the process. Hopefully they roll it out soon though :)

    Im assuming that I can flash the CWM recovery image in my adb folder, install the zip, then reboot. Or do I need to permanently flash CWM?

    Thanks. Is there a way to backup the current radio? I'm coming from the Inc so flashing radios seems to be different from what I'm used to ( didn't flash them from CWM )...

    Got one more bar on sig strength and about 5 mbps more on speedtest.

    It is definitely not worse than the previous radio. Thats all that matters to me lol
  20. It would be nice if op posted dl here so we dont have to join another forum... its a PIA doing so on a cellphone

    Yeahha Usually off topic

    You should be able to softboot CWM and flash the radios that way yes, just like if you rooted by softbooting CWM so you keep the original recovery.

    I don't think so but the stock radios can be download I don't have a link currently but could find one for you if you need me to.

    This is sitting in my basement right now, ping not so good but best I've seen so far on the old radio was 1.9..

    Just flashed. Seems to be about the same to me. Maybe a slight improvement but I wasn't experiencing signal issues to begin with.

    Wow, this completely killed my connection (3G), I'm down to .35 - .60 Mbps. I was at around 1.7 - 1.8 Mbps just minutes before, which is my normal speed. Will flashing Fabs Rom get me back to the old radio? If not how do I get it back?
