Is it the same as, V18_modem.S920.for.P780.zip of stympys?
Correct.
For all other roms mentioned in the list of fredmoy, see the Russian Lenovo forum (run Google translate if needed) : http://lenovo-forums.ru/topic/1702-%...8F-p780/page-3
and look for the links Подборка прошивок модемов 1, подборка 2.

Been testing further, and the general tendency is that I all roms that give me the 3G 900Mhz, disable my second SIM.
I have to enter my pin for it, but it never activates.

Ok thanks. I've known that site, I tried all possible modems so it seems and my phone still can't hold the signal for a very long time.

I'm flashing stock rom back and asking for a replacement.

Same problem
I'm living in the city so it's hard to test the signal quality. But I did notice that going into a building often puts me on G or signal lost.

One more tip, they say that you have to make sure your network mode
MobileUncle => Engineering Mode (MTK) => Network Selecting => Set to GSM/WCDMA (auto) must be selected instead of WCDMA preferred).

Most people on the Russian forums end up with modem.S920.for.P780 (which is V15 I think)

Isn't it the same settings as classic android system settings in preffered networks? Must be done in MobileUncle?

Edit: It did not help sending the phone back to the store :/

No, you can also do it in the settings, but nowadays I just do it all from MobileUncle because it's easier...

Good luck with your next one
