Background
This is a list of radios for the OnePlus One (bacon). With the new OTA release, some people may have better signals with the old radio or want to tinker with the new one so here is a list that will be updated to allow users to switch to their preferred radio/modem.

Radios are independent of Android version, use the radio that provides you the best signal. It varies from user to user, there is no best radio/modem Why? Different carriers, different locations, and more. There are so many factors that play into cellular signal so just because a particular radio is the best for someone doesn't mean its the best for you. We can obtain a consensus on which radio performs the "best" for the largest % of users though.

However, see @Vonnegut 's experiences here on modems.

How to Flash?
Simply flash the .zip below in your preferred recovery. If you prefer flashing via fastboot, extract the .bin file out of the .zip file and flash it by typing,
Code:
fastboot flash modem <name-of-modem>.bin
The MD5 hashes for the files below are MD5 hashes of the zips and not the radio image themselves.

M11(10/07/14): Same radio as ColorOS 09/18/14.
M9 (08/05/14): Same radio as XNPH30O (See XNPH30O)

ColorOS
09/18/14: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23622183712473371 (thanks to @fards) This is the same radio as the ones provided in the latest CM11 Nightlies.

To get a feel of what modems are identical and what are not (thanks to @funCrash93 for having the time to display this -- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=163 )

---------------------------------------------
It should also be noted that in Settings -> About Phone, all the versions are listed as MPSS.DI.2.0.1.c7-00020-M8974AAAAANPZM-1.
Confirmed by armitage, they are indeed different with the same baseband version. See here.

You can check the phone info for baseband version. Thats the modem. But remember the stock cm11s modems use the same name. So i would ask the dev of the rom (in this case mahdi rom) , or you can check the modem in your rom.zip and compare checksums to find the same.

But you dont even need to bother with these. Just keep a backup of your rom.zip, it has a modem, its probably called NON-HLOS.bin, you can flash it through fastboot anytime, with the command stated in the OP:

fastboot flash modem <filename>.bin

You'll just have to use your own judgment and keep track of what radio you're on. Theres no way to distinguish because CyanogenInc / OnePlus thought it was a good idea to be doing baseband/radio changes while keeping the same version. Which in my opinion, I believe is a bad practice because then users will not remember what radio they're on if they're using radios other than the latest.

Mahdi ROM does not include a radio in their flashable zip.

I can't really answer that question for you as I don't live in your area. For instance, I'm in New York City, if I get the best performance using the XNPH30O radio (just saying as a example) it doesn't meant that you will get the same performance because you're in California (as an example) on AT&T. In my post I explained it, there is no best modem/radio. You will have to just flash it, use it for a couple days (or 1 day) and conclude it for yourself. I'm hoping that people will be more active in this thread and personally lay out their opinions on what is the best radio for them as well as include their location so people can get a general idea/consensus on the most popular radio/modem.

Ask yourself the questions.
- How is my battery life? Did it improve or did it worsen due to a weaker/stronger signal?
- Am I getting dropped connections?
... etc

thank you ! Flashed the 33R radio yesterday. I live in Germany and will give a feedback.

Offtopic : Mahdi Rom + Vomer tweaks + Franco Kernel = 1% Overnight drain in 9 Hours ( Wifi and cell network)...

Its weird because I get better idle time when I'm on cell data than having airplane mode on. Probably because the phone continues to work on finding signal when its in airplane, probably a bug. xD

I guess you could also add radios from CM Snapshoots like M8 and M9, 'coz for example there are people that run better with those than CM11s ones.

personally running M9 radio (of course bacon one ), and for me as well Snapshot radio is better.

btw, the is a thread on this (fixing connectivity issues by using CM11 M# radios and not CM11S.



but never the less the idea is good to gather all here.


Sent from my bacon.
