I think this may have been mentioned already but in case, there is an app here that can tell you if your phone is susceptible to getting bricked. Mine shows it is but I have flashed a lot of roms and kernals without issue.

BigHammer: Keeping an eye Siyah v3.3.3b and will test against Abyss and CF-Root.

Anyone still here with an i9100T and on Telecom or has everyone jumped over to the SGSIII thread? ;-) Looking for an updated, stable, tested and working modem. Cheers



Still here, been slow on posting due to finding a very stable setup here:
Samsung Galaxy SII (I9100T)
ROM: WanamLite XWLPG 12 + Domination 4.6 JKay
Kernel: Siyah v3.3.2 + Extweak extreme with no UV
Modem: I9100TDOLP4 (Telecom)

DOLP4 gives me the best results compared to all the standard and T modems ive used, T modems generally give me better reception in the burbs and better speed in the CBD. My setup is similar to yours and I get close to 19mbps in the CBD (my results are a few pages back)

I will update to UHLPS when the new domination works on it or move on to 4.0.4 stable but stick to the same modem.

Thanks for the info. I'll hunt down that modem and give it a whirl.

Testing UHLPS as of today. Possibly some minor issues with the current config. Two or three FCs but haven't identified the cause as yet.




Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005
ROM: Stock Telecom release 4.4.2

If you can't fix it with a Big Hammer, chances are you've got an electrical problem!

Was just looking at this. It's an aluminium case for our phone that you can attach a tripod too.
Thought I'd post it for the avid photo taker on this thread Wink

kiwitrc: Mine shows it is but I have flashed a lot of roms and kernals without issue.

I think that pretty much all of the I9100/I9100T models have flash memory firmware that's susceptible to the bug. However, it'll only affect you if you're using a kernel that has enabled ERASE and TRIM support.

Most of the I9100 custom kernels are based on the Update4 source, which doesn't have the necessary support enabled. This means that most custom kernels are fine to use. However, it appears that the LQ5 stock kernel does have ERASE/TRIM support enabled, and therefore it can cause the problem. (CF-Root kernels are also affected because they only modify initramfs, not the kernel itself.)

Instead, I would recommend Capta. It's more universal and versatile, plus it doesn't matter whether you're using an extended battery or not. If you're looking for a flexible and versatile tripod to go with it, check out the Gorilla Pod. Finally, SlingShot is an awesome handheld stabilizer, and also doubles up as a tripod.

Still seeing secril_fd-interface wakelocks with Fast Dormancy disabled. Does this make any sense?


 

DOLP5 is working great for me on i9100T / Telecom; it's from the official Telecom ICS ROM. I have tried a few other modems from other international ROMs but I find their battery usage to be more.

I have fast dormancy disabled as well and I don't see any secril_fd-interface wakelocks.

Damager: Can someone please link a CF Root Kernel suitable for the latest Telecom ICS Rom dated 16 June 2012?

There doesn't need to be an exact match between the ROM you're using and the kernel. Any of the ICS kernels from this post on XDA should work just fine. I'd suggest something recent like CF-Root-SGS2_XW_NEE_LPG-v5.5-CWM5.zip.

The only kernels in that post that you shouldn't use are the Gingerbread kernels at the top, and the LQ5 kernel at the bottom. The Gingerbread kernels just flat out won't work with ICS, and the LQ5 kernel is susceptible to a bug that can permanently brick your phone. And I do mean permanent - even service centres that can do JTAG repairs will be unable to fix the phone.

thanks @stevesumner and @nzgeek for the cf root kernel links.

Just flashed resurrection remix 2.6.. the speed of the jellybean transitions is making my S2 the fastest it's ever been!

This is a common misconception that the Rom/Kernel version you are running is the same as the Modem. As you can see according the Fus Downloader the current Telecom Rom still uses the DOLP4 modem. Just letting you know that its a good habit to take note of these suffixes as it is the cause of over 9000 user problems on XDA
