networkn: What radios are you guys using for GB ROMS for VFNZ?


I've found the quality of each successive modem better than the last for VF to be honest - the ICS modems seem to be really good (running DXLP7 currently).



In phone settings is that the baseband? XXKL1 is what I have presently. Is your modem ICS specific?
 


Yes,  baseband is the modem. . . .And all modems are interchangeable with all firmwares; either flash it via Odin, or get a CWM-recovery .zip file, and flash from recovery.

Nope. That's an i9100 modem, not i9100T, damned if I know the difference but there is one.


The i9100 and the i9100T are exactly the same, the only difference being that the radio firmware of the T model disables unused bands, which is why they also have a lower SAR rating.

Sweet - cheers for that. I'd always wondered, but never been curious enough to actively search the info out. ;)

I guess that effectively makes my I9100 a T model when I use the T modem then doesn't it?

Yep.. But this also brings to light an important issue - if you're roaming - particularly, if you're going abroad - you might want to flash the normal modem so as to enable all bands.

So blocking the other bands.. improves reception on 850 H+ band??

I doubt it.. it's a different frequency so it shouldn't affect the reception. However, I always see a huge improvement in the signal when I use the telecom modem firmware as opposed to the international ones; I'm not sure why; perhaps the telecom modem has some other tweaks as well...

Not sure about telstra. I'm using DCKL1 at present, and it works really well - better than DOKG2!

I posted a working link on the previous page.

This site is a pain to use on a phone, either in the browser or mobile site. I think I just requested someone to be a friend...

Neets: Thanks for the reply S. I already had this thread as a subscription. So here's where my "search skills" seem to be failing.  I'm searching for: TDCKL1 and still coming up empty.

Am I searching for the wrong thing?  Cheers. 


I think the original download link was "somewhere" in this thread. Rather than submit myself to that agony I googled it instead. ;)

I9100TDCKL1 Modem

Lee

Edit:
nomiss7:The XXKL1 modem is in the list at the top? Is that not the same at the TDCKL1 modem? Undecided


Nope. That's an i9100 modem, not i9100T, damned if I know the difference but there is one.


Thanks for that Lee.  Gave me my first opportunity to use Mobile Odin too.  Easy peasy.  Cheers

I think this has been mentioned here before but since upgrading to ICS I send double SMS messages when using Handcent. It only shows as a single message from my end but to the recipient they get the message twice.

When I use the stock SMS program (ugh, ugly) they only receive the message once.

Anyone else got this issue?
