So the issues with dropped calls and not connecting to the net are getting consistently worse.
I think its something to do with the modem?

I don't remember it being this bad on stock OS.

Is there something I can do about this??

btw. I'm now using vb-fb-build-3.


Thanks!!!

Vb by fb uses the kg4 modem. The stock one is kj6. There are cwm flashables for modems only in the Dev forum somewhere.

I've never had a single problem on mac. I use OS X Lion.

I use heimdall instead of ODIN. I don't have to work hard, in fact, I personally believe it's easier since I don't have to worry about drivers and etc.

man... i really dont want to mess with odin via my mac and etc...
I've got your rom working and can install more roms via clockwork mod and/or other apps... is there a way to try out any other modems this way (without having to go thru odin, just loading it into the phone and installing that way)?

if you check out FB's link, those modems are also CWM flashable. You just need to grab the one(s) you want.
If I helped, please click the "Thanks" button!

ok folks.. so after going thru hell and back several times, i've come to the conclusion that although I love the speed. I can't deal with applications freezing, random phone reboots and really really bad radio...

I've tried to replace and boot just the radio and its pretty much the same.

And although it was way slower stock, the phone did what it was supposed to, which is act like a damn phone....

How can I bring this back to the way it was before i stated frankensteining it?
ie, How can I make this stock/factory again?

Here you go, dude - Bryan's One-Click, and you are a couple of taps of the button away from unrooted stock goodness: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1358498
