I just flashed Simplicity 1.5.1 JVT with Semaphore 1.8.0 big mem, clocked to 1200mhz and undervolted. I was on Damian gto's kernel for ages before this and I can say the performance on this new kernel combined with the supercharge scripts in this ROM have to be experienced to be believed. This is the fastest and most stable my phone had been since Froyo 2.2.1 - I am actually really proud to own this phone.

For a phone that's so "old" in this day and age I can't believe how amazing it runs with the help of the open source community. I cannot imagine how powerful something like the Galaxy Nexus will be when the community gets behind it- I can't wait to find out.

Yeah I just checked the I9000 dev forums and saw there's a whole lot of activity. I'll have to flash my mum and brother's phones.

Come to the dark side... Really impressed how MIUI has matured..  I tried going back to stock but couldn't do it for more than a day!

I've read that FM is working now, I think the only thing missing is TV out? Not sure, I don't have a need for either of those.

 I tried that combination today based on your comment, and couldn't get any faster than GSM data connection. So, any recommendation for the right modem firmware for Vodafone in Wellington?

what i meant when talking about "fast" was the physical speed of the phone navigating thru menus, loading and running apps, and quadrant (which is sitting around 2600-2900 for me now)

it really has no bearing on mobile data speed - that should only be impacted by the modem.bin you are using, and your physical distance from cell towers etc.

im not sure what you mean by you couldnt get faster than "GSM data" - by this do you mean 2G GPRS speeds only, ie you are unable to connect on 3G? have you gone into settings>wireless&network>mobilenetwork>AccessPointNames and ensured that area is not empty?

im an XT user so i dont dabble with 900mhz modems, but i think some people on here have posted good data performance with the BUJP5 modem?

Yes, I understand that, thanks!

OK, not entirely 100% sure of all the correct jargon; but with the stock Vodafone firmware, at home I get "3G" and "H" icons in the top "status bar" when accessing data frequently; but with the Simplicity/Semaphore combo, the phone wouldn't lock into those, and spent most of it's time with "G" - this is what I assume is 2G GPRS (and what I called GSM above) data speed.

I tried flashing BUJP5, and it didn't make much difference; interestingly enough, when I restored my NANDROID backup back to the Vodafone Stock (2.3.3) rom, the BUJP5 modem stayed there, and I got 3G/"H" speed again.  (I've fully flashed back to "stock" now and it says Baseband "SRJV1")

Presumably there is some setting inside Simplicity/Semaphore which needs tweaking, but I'm not sure what.  I had used a tool to backup my APNs before I reflashed, and I restore that, and it didn't seem to make any difference.

I'm also not 100% convinced that BUJP5 works well with Gingerbread - isn't it a Froyo modem?  And does that actually make a difference?

I'm fairly new to the whole flashing scene - I've tried a couple of things (including CyanongenMod 7.1 Stable), but not had too much joy.  The whole combination of Firmware/Kernel/ROM plus Telco plus MODEM plus .... is a lot to get my head around, and I'm not too sure I've tried the right combinations for Vodafone.  It probably doesn't help that apparently Vodafone NZ use a fairly unique set of frequencies, either!

Fun and games.....

+1 to this. Been using MIUI for a solid 6 months, it has improved a lot. Gives CM7 a run for its money speed wise. Only two things I miss are the TV out and and video auto focus not that I really need or use either

your description and understanding of the phones data usage seems sound - G symbol is GPRS, 3G is regular 3G data, H indicates HSPA data speeds.

FROYO modems work fine with GB, i used a FROYO modem on my GB build for months with no issue.

to me it seems like its an APN problem. i dont know if using your "tool" to backup and restore your APNs is working. have you physically gone in there to see if anything is there at all?

OK, that's good to know - looking at xda-developers it wasn't too clear due to the number of differing opinions.

lofreq: to me it seems like its an APN problem. i dont know if using your "tool" to backup and restore your APNs is working. have you physically gone in there to see if anything is there at all?

Well, to be honest, I just assumed it had worked; the tools by the same author for SMS and Call logs worked...

But thanks for the advice - very much appreciated.  I'll check this when I try the new ROM/kernel combination again.

Which version of MIUI are you using?  Current favourite is the slightly modified Mint Berry Edition from XDA. Based off the MIUI Android releases.

Thanks for the info; but after a day or so of really struggling with Simplicity I've given up and gone back to Vodafone NZ Stock.  Horrible lag, multiple hard locks (removing the battery is the only way to recover), and other general weirdness just made me give up.  Clearly something wasn't right; but blowed if I could figure out what I did wrong!
