[Q] TWS/Data drop fix, possible script/app?
I have an Optimus V, but have seen many, many posts dealing with this issue in a number of different threads, but haven't seen an automated fix for the data drop/time without signal/battery usage issues many people have been experiencing that seem to be related. I'm aware of the fix50 app that seems to take care of the TWS issue for me but does nothing for the data problems or rapid battery draining. I have had good luck with the following procedure posted by abcdfv in the "[How-To] Better battery life, reduce time without signal" thread:
NOTE: when you first open the testing menu, it will show it as CDMA auto (prl). This is a visual glitch, in reality, it is set to GSM auto (prl). If your TWS is around 50%, it means it's GSM auto (prl)
First things first, go into Settings> About Phone> Battery> Battery Use> Cell Standby. Assuming your phone has been on, or off the charger for ~10 minutes, it should show Time Without Signal at around 50%.
Next thing, press HOME, and bring up the dialer. Dial *#*#4636#*#* (Do not press "Call"). After a second, it should bring up the "Testing" menu.
Go into Phone Information, press MENU, and tap "select radio band." You should experience a Force Close, don't panic, this was supposed to happen. Scrolling down shows that the preferred network type is GSM auto (prl).
What this means is that even though you are connected to a CDMA network, your phone is trying to find a GSM network, preventing the radio from sleeping, and causing excessive battery drain.
Remedy this by tapping GSM auto (prl), and changing it to CDMA auto (prl).
Now your done, your TWS should drop dramatically, and you should experience much better battery life!
Note: You need to do this every time you reboot.
My question is this- has anybody developed a script or app to automatically do this process? If not, would anybody know how to tackle such a thing? I did find a post over on another forum with a script to periodically check for network connectivity and toggle data off and back on if a connection wasn't present, but I'm really more interested in something that would just run at startup, like the fix50 app, but would do the process listed above instead of a simple Airplane Mode toggle. I did install Any Cut and at least now have a shortcut to the testing menu, but it would be great to have something automated.
Thanks in advance!
