Angry [RADIO] HTC Desire Stock Radios [LATEST 5.17.05.23] [29/05/11]

I have taken the time to put together all the radios available for the HTC Desire (GSM), all the radios have been packaged in recovery flashable zips.

I do not know which is best for battery life/performance so please discuss that below, if you find any radios I do not have listed please send me a message with the link so I can update the thread.

Note: Flashing RIL files will not improve battery, stability or enhance anything despite what people think, you are wasting your time, lookup what the RIL actually is and the example source code and you will see why.

Instructions on how to flash the radios can be found here.

NOTE: If you have the Alpharev Oxygen or CM7 HBOOT then you will not be able to flash these files via recovery, quote from AlphaRev site below.
Quote:
If you downloaded Bravo Data++, please notice the /cache partition is too small to hold Radio flashes from recovery. You can however flash the radio just fine with 'fastboot flash radio radio.img'. Just extract the radio.img from the radio update.zip beforehand.
You need to have a rooted device to flash any of these radios, help with this can be found here.

Cheers AdamG!

Just put RADIO_4.06.00.16_2.zip on my Desire. Reception does seem better than the previous 4.06.00.02_2 so far

This is on a GSM Handset with Orange SIM Card. No idea if it will SIMlock Orange supplied handsets though like 4.06.00.02_2 did...

Hy guys, the Radio part is a major issue for me because the signal fluctuates like crazy and sometimes when I am updating or browsing the web data conn. goes from 3G/H to standard G. And of course if someone calls me gets a out of area tone.

Not speaking about lack of signal indoors wich sucks also. Sometimes i get the no connection "x" near the signal bars. And my Nokia 6500slide has full signal, no drops, etc etc in exactly the same area.

And one more thing, if I have 3bars, I pick it up,, it drops like crazy to 1bar or none...

So, I would really like to update the radio part for my desire because this is the one thing that sucks about him, but:

1. I really would not like to loose my warranty
2. I'm not into rooting my phone or custom rom-ing it, from lack of time and reason number one

so my question is:

can I install a radio update without rooting/loosing warranty/rom-ing it ?!

thank-yee

You need to root your device to flash any of these files.

Follow the instructions here http://android.modaco.com/content/ht...-1-21-support/

Use the recovery-windows script to flash them once you have rooted your device.
