    Its running nicely for me. Full bars on the signal where I usually only have three and the internet flies.

    I see we're talking modem/basebands here, and not the most recent ICS firmware leak, so I've amended the thread title accordingly.

    I may try this as I'm starting to lose faith with KP8.

    I get better ping but horrible download speeds (with KP8) in the city but at home I get around what ironass gets. It all depends on location!

    Just like everything else in our changing world, now that you have had fun with KPA, time to download LP1!

    Sorry, I didn't have a link so I actually downloaded the entire build and extracted the modem. I have since installed the full ICS KL1 build. It's pretty good guys!!

    No need to apologise, I've had to do that a few times. I put a link to a modem collection in the all things root sticky a few days ago. The op doesn't get updated much but if there's a new modem out go to the last page. If they're talking about it someone's posted it so just make your way backwards and you'll find the link.

    I installed LP1 last night after being on KPA.

    When I got up this morning I noticed that my phone signal bar, (see screenshot), had changed from its normal solid yellow to a beige colour from the moment LP1 was installed. I re-flashed KPA and it has now gone back to solid yellow.

    Any ideas why I've turned beige and green?

    Have a slight headache, firing on only 2 cylinders and on 1st coffee... so speak slowly and softly.

    Afaik the colour indicates signal strength i.e. green > yellow > beige > red. I've no idea why it did what it did, though.

    I'm like you, and normally see a constant yellow bar. I may install this modem to see if my result echoes your own experience.

    Looks like my assumption was wrong, and beige > yellow. :eek:

    I've put LP1 on my own handset and if figures don't lie then the above is true. My dbm has dropped significantly and the asu has risen, plus the signal display in the status bar indicates one more 'bar' than I saw previously.
