So adding ro.ril.fast.dormancy.rule=0 to build.prop appears to do nothing on my HTC Desire, which is running a custom CM9 based build.


I spotted this:

Which works for samsung devices. But such a database does not exist on my phone. I assume its because samsung's RIL is quite different from HTC's one.

My assumption is that is not working as it has a H symbol consistently, and never changes to a 3G. I believe when i put a 2degrees sim in, it does change to a 3G symbol when idle, so fast dormancy works there. When disabled, i think it's meant to have a manual timeout after a certain amount of time?

Disabling this is only useful on Telecom at this stage.

CM9 ignores that setting. The GokhanMoral app seems to work for my Galaxy Note which is also running CM9, so odds are it should work for yours as well.

SuperCurio's tool will show you what's going on too, but only works on Samsung devices with stock firmware: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.projectvoodoo.rrctool
