Just wondering it's been awhile since I've done any hackery and I seem to have a weaker signal running the GPE ROM?

It's probably not weaker. Just more accurate.

Possibly but I didn't drop LTE before now it's always switching to HSPA+

It could be that the threshold is set and since it is more accurate it switches. So if it's set at 110 and the phone reads 115 it'll switch to the most reliable signal.

Indeed maybe I can find a way to tweak that.

I found that when I was using the GPe conversion, I was getting a much weaker signal compared to stock while at home and a few places I would go to. I remember reading something about AWS and T-Mobile upgrades and stuff (I'm not a reception expert) on that being the reason why there could be a difference in reception. I may do the conversion again and just put the T-Mobile radio in and see how that works.

Wish I could do the conversion but no dice in getting S-OFF on my device.

Feel like going back to stock. I actually like blinkfeed after switching to GPE. Wish a ruu would leak...

I love stock Android but I couldn't stand Sense even though I was quite impressed how far they've come along
