Does anyone have the same?
I used to have the same problem. But recently this hasn't happened anymore. I didn't see it mentioned in any changelog and can't offer an expert opinion on why it didn't work before.
Here's what I can come up with:
- I'm on RC3.3U1. Maybe this was fixed by DK or in CM code?
- I've had to do a full wipe for the upgrade. Maybe some old setting was causing this?
- I did not restore system settings through Titanium (the way I usually do). Maybe auto configuration of network parameters (APN etc.) in the new ROM fix this?
Changing the RIL to a GB compatible one will probably just cause more problems. There's quite a lot of interfacing between RIL and several of the kernel drivers... and we know a lot of the drivers had to be altered/hacked to work with ICS.
My advice would be to make a nandroid backup, perform a full wipe, install the latest ROM and test for this behaviour. If it's indeed fixed then you can restore apps etc. (and if it breaks after that, then you know you should not have restored system network setteings). If it turns out that this doesn't fix things for you, then you can always restore the nandroid backup.
