For RILS? ;)
Does anyone know specifically what RILs the Note 2 uses? I found a little bit of info via searching somewhere in the SGSIII section but there seemed to be a few minor but possibly crucial differences. There also seemed to be some different rils between 4.1.1 and 4.1.2? Sorry, I'm new to Samsung and am familiar with HTCs and their stuff. Some might have sec in the rils somewhere also but not sure. I'm sure I'm not the only one trying to figure this out or anything, right? Any thoughts folks? Thanks in advance!
I guess I should mention this also for those who have no idea what I'm talking about. Ril files should match the baseband aka (radio or modem) and using the rils from the rom the modem was ripped from sometimes helps your radio preform better. You won't get a stronger signal but tower handoffs on the phone's end (ever had a dropped call? Typically from a failed handoff) might work better and possibly increased data speeds. Again, it doesn't improve signal but makes it handle better. A decent analogy is getting your wheels balanced after changing tires on a car.
I'm downloading the latest 4.1.1 (VALL4) to compare RILs from my rom which is 4.1.2 (JediX8) and will get back with everyone on what I found...
UPDATE: I found out that the suspected files all match in name so that's not a issue, thank goodness! That would have made this a big mess. That doesn't mean that the rils weren't revised with the new modem which means there will be a benefit of matching rils to radio if you flash vall4 modem only obviously. These are the suspected rils files needed and I think there might be more or less. Please anyone chime in on with their opinions...
The first 3 I am sure of obviously but the last two as suspect. The only reason I mentioned those is because of they are radio interface layer files (I do realize not all rils pertain to modem only
) and they were mentioned in the build.prop. that doesn't necessarily mean it's modem related but it seems possible. That's why I need some others to look at these and help me decide. I'm sure matching rils will help those wanting to update their modem only for now and future updates. Thanks again for any input! And btw, the new modem seems to be working as well if not better than the old one imo. One final thought though.. why don't we have a libsec-ril.so? Every rom has one on other devices (htc and other devices too named something similar) and they are a larger size around 700kb or so. All these three files we have are way too small to be the only modem rils. I doubt the last two should be used but we are missing a larger ril possibly named something else. I'll have to wait and see what yall think
