[mod]Boosting Signal Strength (hspa/gprs)
If anyone has anymore info on the ro.ril. properties, I would greatly appreciate it.
It would also be great if every shared the script they use with which network.
You'll need a rooted Streak and Root Explorer.
Add/edit these entries to "/system/build.prop" (you must mount to r/w and open with Text Editor). Make sure that these are not already in your build.prop, if they are, then just edit the values.
(higher values are invalid until proven otherwise)
[0=UMTS] [1=HSPDA only] [2=HSPDA & HSUPA]
(Class 10 to save battery)
The Streak supports Class 12 GPRS, set to 12 to increase EDGE speed
(no info available, no change when turned off)
Enable "dual transfer mode" on EDGE networks; requires different GPRS class setting. Only set this to 1 if your network allows simultaneous transfer of Circuit switched (CS) voice and Packet switched (PS) data over the same radio channel (ARFCN).
(Cat 8 is the Streak's max)
(Cat 6 is the Streak's max)
(enable increased ciphering on HSDPA/HSUPA)
(Adds the 3G prefix e.g. Optus 3G, etc.)
All Carries have their own specific settings they should use.
As Im using Optus Prepaid in Australia these are the setting I use. Lots of experimenting went into these and my 3G works better than ever. Best SpeedTest I've got was D2.98/U1.52 48ms ping on 4 bars, average is about D2.5/U1.0 80ms.
Thanks to nickshertzer here are the setting for AT&T
After adding, save and remount to r/o. You might need to restart TWISE to get this completely working.
Happy Streaking =)
This will not increase the power of your antenna or increase radiation. All this does is choose the best profiles for EDGE/HSDPA/HSUPA. Its proven to increase speed and connection strength.
