Default [Q]ROM with fully working 2g network (=no signal lost)

Premise : as I said in the title,I'm not asking 'what is the best rom ?'.

Now,here's my problem and my question :
Since a month I have 2g connecyion problems (YES,I use 2g connection and I switch to 3g only when I need a data connection;I save more battery and my phone can last 30-40 hours from 100 to 15%),very often my phone loose the signal and it won't turn back until I reboot.
I read in the forum that is a cm bug and in some vanir rom the problem is fixed.

Here's what i did trying to fix the problem :
-restore stock firmware through kdz file (v20a)
-root/recovery and unsecure boot flash.
-flash cm 10.1.3 and iodak kernel (clean instal) -> still 2g problem.
-flash vanir stable 4.3.1 with stock or werewolf kernel (clean install) -> 2g problem and sometimes when I lost the signal the phone gets hot and my battery drains really fast. I have also another problem : my phone was at 90%,i turned it off and in the morning the battery was at 0%.
-flash zaiben rom with iodak kernel(really old version that worked correctly in the past)-> wifi problems after some reboots.
-flashed miui 3.12.6 from miuiandroid with optimus prime kernel -> 2g problems.

I don't know what to do,can someone suggest me a stable rom without network problems (wifi/2g,3g/gps/nfc) and maybe with good performance and battery life ?
Yesterday I flashed 4 different rom (always with a clean install) and I'm tired to try different rom so please,don't answer me 'make backup and try this or that rom' and share your experience instead.

Thanks in advice.

stock rom, or any custom 4.2.2+ rom with EPRJ RIL implemented, which you can do yourself. look for my tutorial in general subforum, replacing CM RIL with EPRJ RIL gives rock-stable connection
To install custom roms on O4x:

1. upgrade to jb
2. root
3. unlock bootloader
4. flash custom recovery (cwm)
5. flash roms
6. if you encounter any issues, search, they've been answered already.

Got issues with RIL/IMEI/BASEBAND on custom 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 ROMs on p880? Click me for possible solution!

I already looked your tutorial and the official thread of the tool but afterinstalling java,net framework etc,the tool doesn't work.
It says 'java not recognised' or something similar.

And what about kernels ? Does they (or some of them) create some kind of problems ?

So,if I'll make the tool works and I'll replace the ril,can I use cm 10.1.3 with iodak 8.0 kernel without problems ?
The strange thing is that network worked correctly with cm 10.1.3 for months,but now it doesn't.

BTW,wich rom are you using ? Can it fit for my phone use ?

you gotta edit some settings on your computer, if you have issues with java. check out the link in the tutorial to the program i used to extract .jar file, it has the proper troubleshooting ^^
kernels shouldn't have issue with 2g/3g, but i do know some custom kernels have issues with wifi on stock and stock-based rom that appear randomly, and just as randomly go away (wifi stuck on turning on)

and yeah, you should be able to use iodak+cm combination without the issue. and it is strange that the problem just now started appearing, but hey, if this works, you got yourself set for future


atm i'm back on modified stock with iodakv7, i needed proper mhl support. i've however used i think all the roms for our device atleast for a week or so. carbon, slim, omni, vanir, cm, aokp, pac, mokee...

Don't use unsecure boot flash' it is.unnecessary
Try optimus play kernel, it is excellent for me (wifi, 3g always on, whole day of battery and more)

now I'm on miui 3.12.6 with optimus prime kernel and I edited the RIL using flyingbear's tutorial but it's too early to say if it works but first impression seems good.

I'm too busy to check another rom (i'd like to use vanir 4.3.1 or cm 10.1.3) and other kernel but when I'll try it,I'll write my impression

I have similar problem with network on latest miui.When i restart device or just turn it on/off i can find network untill i go to airplane network and switch it off again then everything is fine.Also it happened just 1 time that i lost my network while my phonewas on.I did discovered that this is MiUi problem since i never got this kind of behavior on any previous rom.Last couple of days even fter restart my network is ok no need to use airplane trick anymore.So again i will say this is miui bugg for somereason.

Trust me,it's a month that I "fight" with mobile network,it's a common problem for all non-stock based roms,sometimes happens and sometimes not.
However you can fix it with flyingbear's tutorial.
