Re: [Modem / Basebands][1/20] - The two current modems available
My house is in a blow signal area. L4 radio constantly got me around 1-2 bars. JB got me 3-4 and, also when on the Internet I noticed my phone heated up quickly while on L4.

Interesting. If you get lower signal you will certianly drop battery and heat phone.

BUT... My question is... What ROM are you on? that will also affect the RIL for the radio.

If I am not mistaken his ROM is based of the JB build and not L4 build therefore, in theory, the issues you are stating are very possible.

However this does not indicate a problem with his ROM, just a poor radio for his ROM.

Someone told me that someone told them that they read somewhere...

That the new radio has been causing more issues for some people.

Got try it. If it doenst work for you then flash the stock one.

For me the jury is still out.

Could be. Not denying it.

I think they only changed the Radio version to match the OS Build version.

I dont think there is a real change.
