Hi all,
Have flashed a new ROM onto my S2, and cell reception is poor compared to what the original ROM was
I compared with a Galaxy S, and I have 1/2 the signal, and when on calls, it often drops out
I don't have a copy or backup of the original, so I'm unable to revert to original
Currently the ROM is Darkys ROM, based in Android 4.0.3 and baseband is I9100XXLPQ

Still want to use Android 4, but want good receptions as well
I'm on the VF network too, in Napier if it makes any difference, about 1.2km from the closest VF cell tower
Anyone got any ideas on what radio I can flash onto the phone to improve reception

Thanks!
Made a bit of difference actually, able to hold phone calls on the side of my house that usually gives little reception
Any explanation as to why the new radio works better???

I believe its for the 9100T for Aussie which runs 850 and 900Mhz, but dont quote me on that.

You have to use the i9100T radios on a i9100T device, some of the standard ones can brick it ;)
