Hey I've spent the afternoon sorting out my phone. (Good procrastination for exams) and I've decided on running CdTDroids CM9 rom rather than a jellybean based rom which I have been using for the last few days. I'm also running Siyah 4.15 so both are stable (Sick of running experimental/nightly builds). I've done a few CPU/GPU tweaks as advised from threads on XDA so i'll see how those go over the next few days. I'm basically looking for something that has no lag, opens apps such as messaging and dolphin fast etc while still being somewhat good on battery (last around 15-20hrs of daily usage) so basically from when I wake up to when I goto bed. 

Instead of testing a multitude of different modems, I thought I'd ask here and try find something with good performace on Telecom while still keeping batter usage in check so no wake-lock issues or apps getting stuck etc.

Thanks

Flash the i9100T modem.

I flashed that on my international S2 and it worked great.

You should find the file somewhere on XDA if you look around

Looks like flashing the i9100T modem could cause a brick?

The modem you want is DOLP7, the latest Telecom one.

If you can't find it online I can probably dig up an Odin flashable file for you.

The i9100 and i9100T are identical other than the T model shipping with modems that are optimised for 850MHz networks.

That one very vague post that doesn't actually state the cause of the brick is not really anything to go by.

My first SGS2 was a i9100 and it was very happy with a T modem on it. I know a few other people who did the same without issue. Also I haven't seen any reports over on XDA of it being an issue either.

Cheers for the replies, so would I want to get the modem from here for the i9100T for DOLP7? When I mouse over the modem button it says that it is DOLP4?

Ah yes LP4 is the correct modem from the LP7 firmware. That's the ones you want.

I did some prelim tests and found that xxlp6 > dolp4 = xxki4

For those who have nothing to do and wants to do some testing

Of course you also have to take into account battery life reception etc which I haven't
