That is what I want to know because Radios are supposed to have matching RIL's.

If so ... No. AFAIK your kernel already has that, and it shouldn't strictly need and updates either.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Whatever you do, don't hit the UPDATE button. It will screw up your SMSC settings and the ability to send SMSs.

Thanks, I read your post literally 5s after I hit update button repeatedly to see if it'd make my settings changes stick :P

I probably wouldn't have noticed a problem until later and not fixed it immediately had you not posted!

Is there any way to tell if the setting to AUS2 band stuck?

Likewise..... Same as guy above. Now texting is twizzzzzzTED. Oh well, gotta be some way to fix it I would think. Guess I'm off to pound the boards for a few hours until I figure out how to undo my daily boo-boo.Unless........ Anyone wants to lemme know what I need to do after so brilliantly "UPDATING" the "do not update" setting.

Peace

I still remember those days flashing radio_32.50.00.32U_5.12.00.08 in my N1 because it was supposed to greatly improve signal levels.....

I'm in Spain, using Pepephone, could anyone recommend me any baseband to use? Any noticeable difference among the european basebands? of course i'm on GSM/yakju/maguro/allthisthing

In my opinion XXKL1 is a massive improvement over XXKK6, which in my experience performs roughly the same as XXKK1.

Others have reported that they get radio-crashes/signal-issues with XXKL1, while others have attributed this to their 4.0.3-build as opposed to the actual radio.

YMMV. I recommend trying XXKL1.

If you have it with all the radios, don't you think you should look on the kernel or the rom side now?

Consider this a wild guess, but it sounds like you have some really sub-optimal NTP servers setup in /etc/gps.conf.

Default is some north american ones. You could consider changing to more local NTP servers. I recall a market-app called "Fasterfix" could do this for you on the SGS1 but last I checked it doesn't work on the Galaxy Nexus.

Personally I recommend asking in Q&A about what tricks people have for improving GPS, but a better NTP-server is one of those things which can do wonders.
