Me definitely. Before I used to get like 1 to no bars or service in my room but now I get 3 at the least. Call quality is so much better as well

I noticed my LTE speeds jumped up about 5mbs but my battery life was reduced to about 4 hours using Hyperdrive.

It's definitely been an improvement for me. Less call drops with the people I call most.

Thumbs up
The first time I tried it, I only got Edge, and had many problems.

reverted to stock and rooted and reloaded my nandroid backup and tried again....

Wow! there is a DEFINITE DIFFERENCE !!! I am now getting LTE with more bars, and also I see 4G where I hardly ever saw it in my house! Now, after the flash, I almost NEVER see EDGE anymore. I think this is a superb improvement to the GS4...

just for anyone's knowing...

I am on 4.2.2 and had upgraded the baseband to UVAMDL and it still shows that in "About phone" but the results are better than anything I have attempted before... I even got a Signal Booster from TMO lol... Now I don't need it!

Great find and fix guys!

Aloha !

Signal for me is stronger and for whatever reason LTE is faster too. I didn't update the LTE radio so I can't explain that but I'll take it.
