I have taken the steps that was said below and have edited the the services.jar to include the uncapped data mod. I did not do this on my own I used the steps BThomas22x gave. Flash the zip in recovery, one includes the 6 bar status mod and the other is the 4bar mod which comes stock on skyrader sense. Flash at your own risk but they worked for me... and please nandroid first

Also if you need it made for your rom send me your services.jar
*Known to create forced closes on the mobile networks menu*


Skyraider 3.5
6bar

4 bar or regular skyraider
http://www.mediafire.com/?8i4b9jbh6dc7le6

Since no one knows how well these work, if you are not satisfied flash these to go back to stock:

4bar stock

..::..Disclaimer..::..
You are voluntarily flashing this at your own risk. I can not be held accountable for anything you choose to do on your own. If you try to blame me, I will laugh at you. ....While pointing.

..::..Data Service Governer Killer..::..

1. What does this do?
This is a modification to the services.jar framework file, that allows you to have an un-throttled internet.

2. Will this make my internet faster?
Yes and No. This will not "Upgrade" your internet. This only takes the trottle off, so you can download, or play games and not have to worry about it hitting a certain peak and lagging from that point on. It doesn't provide you with a new internet, only a warm fuzzy feeling from knowing you don't have to worry about it capping off.

3. If I flash this, will it break my phone?
If it did, yours would be the first case I heard of. I've personally flashed it NUMEROUS times.

4. Will this work on any ROM?
Yes. This is not based off a particular ROM, and can be used with ANY EVO ROM. ALTHOUGH If you're Dev has made changes to the services.jar file, this could wipe those changes out. If you are unsure, send me your services.jar file, and i will look for you. Hopefully, i'll be able to make a download list in a couple days with all the Dev's services.jar files, so you can download that specific one. You can always ask your Dev.

5. Do I have to be rooted?
Yes. In order to be able to flash this, you are going to need to have root with a custom recovery. I.E. Amon_Ra.

..::..Install Instructions..::..

Simply download, and place on the root of your sdcard. Then go into recovery and flash it as you would a ROM. Done.

..::..Download..::..

Data Service Governer Killer



..::ALTERNATIVELY::..

You can follow this method if you're Services.jar framework is already modified, or if you aren't sure.

1. Download these 2 files:
Smali_Baksmali

2. Create 2 folders on your C: Drive labeled "Smali" and "Baksmali". (This is for easy access to the folders when being cd'd)

3. Place the 2 downloaded files in the C: Drive folders accordingly. (I.E. Smali.jar in "Smali" folder, and Baksmali.jar in "Baksmali" folder.)

4. Using 7zip or WinRAR (or any other zip program) open the services.jar file that you pulled from your phone. Copy the "classes.dex" file and paste it into the "Baksmali" folder.

5. Open your command prompt and type the following:
cd C:/Baksmali
java -Xmx512M -jar baksmali.jar -o classes/ classes.dex

6. Open the newly created "classes" folder (its inside your Baksmali folder that you should already be in) and navigate through "/com/android/server/". Scroll down till you see the 6 or 7 "Throttle" files. They will be located between "TelephonyRegistry" and "TVCableObserver$1$1". DELETE ONLY THE "THROTTLE" FILES.

7. Back out of the folders until you are in the "Baksmali" folder again. Now open the "Smali" folder you created earlier. Place the "classes" FOLDER in the "Smali" folder.

8. Return to your command prompt and type this:
cd C:/Smali
java -Xmx512M -jar smali.jar -o classes.dex classes/

9. You should now see a "classes.dex" file in your "Smali" folder. This is the NEW compiled services.jar classes.dex file. Pull up the 7zip or WinRAR file you had open earlier, delete the current classes.dex file from the services.jar, and place the newly compiled one in it's place.

10. Place the services.jar file back into your ROM, and boot up. You are now running Unthrottled.

11. If you do not see the "Throttle" files, don't complain they're not there, your Dev may have already taken them out.
What this mod will do for you:

It will NOT help you avoid overage charges.

For example let's say you're on a 250mb a month plan. This mod only ensures that you will get 250mb at unrestrcited speeds. Going over 250mb will still result in an overage charge.

Also, the reason people keep referring to 5gb on their "unlimited" plan is because Verizon starts to throttle data speeds after 5gb of data. That doesn't mean you get charged more, Verizon just slows you down. This mod will prevent that, and only that.

I hope that clears things up.

*Big Thanks to sino8r for being the Original person to come up with this.*

Just loaded the 6-signal bar version on my SR3.5 phone. Used Speed Test to get speed numbers.

Before the install: 300 down/500 up
After the install: 1400 down/650 up

I should qualify that last night (8:30pm EST) I clocked 2000 down/900 up.

Also, I've used a paltry 1.6GB this billing cycle, so I shouldn't be hit by the governing service if everyone's assumptions are correct. It's possible that my results are simply from the reboot and being connected to a different tower, or maybe the throttling is also controlled by the time of day.

In my completely non-scientific experience, I've found that 3G download speeds seem to depend more on the tower itself than the quality of the connection to it. For example, I've had 2-3 bars (out of 6) in a busy DC suburb, and clocked my download speed at 2400. Then I'll go to a more out-of-the-way area where I'll have 6/6 bars and only get 450.

I think there's definitely something to the idea that speeds might be throttled during "peak" hours to alleviate network strain. I suppose it'll take more input from others before a conjecture can be reached though.

While wireless tethered to my laptop, in Southern Maryland @ 1445, I went to speedtest.net and before the mod I had the following:

DL = 0.61Mb/s
UL = 0.62Mb/s

After the mod same location @ 1500:

DL = 1.16Mb/s
UL = 0.68Mb/s

Is there another means of testing this which I'm not aware of? I assume the speed test you've referenced is in fact this site?

I just tested this, and it seems to work great. I did 12 speedtests, 6 before applying and 6 after.
the average of the 6 speedtest results before: ping: 235 down: 389 up: 271
average of the 6 post tests, ping: 182 down: 867 up: 561

I conclude that this works!

Thank you very much!

Edit: all of these tests where done within the same 30 minutes, and I have used 326.74MB of data so far in my billing cycle.
