Default MaximusHD Network Bar Error

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread but I cant seem to post a reply on the Maximus HD Thread.

I have installed the Kernal update the MaximusHD Rom and both the 21.1 and 21.2 OTA Updates ..... phone seems to work ok but my network bar at the top shows 5 grey bars .... So its impossible to know what my signal strength is .... I turned on my 3G and it does seem to work and I can receive calls. Normally I wouldnt care about this but I live in an area where my signal drops a lot and I need to see my connection status

Does anyone know of anything similar happening or have a solution
