I used the kd1 for awhile and didn't see any difference from kj6 as far a battery, didn't have any better signals or speeds either.
I was using the kj2 from the sidekick already so I thought there would be no difference but normally when i'm at home my data is umts but now I've been in hsdpa ever since I flashed the modem. Battery life so far is good, no changes. It's only been about 12 hours but no significant drain.
@itzik2sh: LB7 doesn't show up in the baseband version area in the Settings menu - people also reported this in the SK4G forum. But as I was flashing it in CWM, the phone reported that it flashed both the mdm.bin and amss.bin files. And I'm getting much better speeds. So you can take it or leave it.
The reason the file is so large is due to the presence of both .bins.
For reference, here is a link to the LB7 modem file that I uploaded to mediafire:
This phone doesn't use mdm.bin or amss.bin, so flashing the package wouldn't do any good. Also the updater-script used doesn't use the proper mount points for our device. So what you think is helping you is in fact the placebo effect, you want it to work so it makes you think its improved, but in fact you're still using your old modem because our phone uses modem.bin. Your phone is actually using whatever modem you were previously using because of the naming differences, the phone is still using modem.bin.
I stand corrected. It's not the first time I've been wrong, and it might not be the last. I did get the fastest speeds ever on my phone immediately after flashing that package, so it was a very timely coincidence. And I have seen flashable stuff not appear in the Settings as well (e.g., Raver's Octane 3.0).
Well - maybe someone with Unbrickable Mod can try out FB's idea in the other thread on this.
