Location [Q] Signal Identification / icon

Hi All,

I just got one question related to signal. This is not blocking or changing performance but this is something I have been faced each time I used a Viper rom on my phones.

First, I am from France and problem was present while I was with SFR and still present with Orange FR.

Let me just give as example with Orange FR I am currently on.

With the stock ROM, the icon at home was switching from H to H+ depending whereI am. At the Office I was between 4G and 3G+.

Now I have installed the ViperRom, and I only see the H signal at home or around and 4G at office.

I have now installed GSM signal monitor and for example at home, I got the H icon and the monitor is displaying HSPA+ so icon does not match the band I am on ...

I also got a HTC One Mini, S-OFF, and now only got the 4G icon even at home where 4G coverage is not present.

It seems that there is a setting for French carrier that make the icon accurate ....

Where is the setting to get more details on this ?
I have a backup of the stock rom, are there parameters I can extranct and use on custom rom ?

Many thanks for answers.
