Yeah, I think they have too. Oddly enough, I was getting similar results to how it used to be, with that script. I dont know, still testing.

Simple Streak 1.2 w/ perfmod nooc.

Optus (Exetel) Australia - Brisbane.

This is the script I use:

Code:
ro.ril.enable.dtm=1
ro.ril.gprsclass=10
ro.ril.hep=1
ro.ril.enable.3g.prefix=1
ro.ril.hsdpa.category=8
ro.ril.hsupa.category=6
ro.ril.hsxpa=5
Stable and a definite increase in connectivity. Speeds "appear" faster, though I cannot confirm this.

Ive actually not tried for an 'extended period'. I just know with this tweak, Im now getting 3g/hsdpa whereas before i barely had a gprs connection. Without doubt, its an improvement, and with 10 gprs its completely stable (for me).

spent hours researching all the ro.ril. properties and I can truly say that going higher then hsxpa=2 is useless as when I change it to 3, 4 or 5 it makes no difference and in most cases made it worse.

I've realised that setting dtm to 0 lets u connect to HSxPA faster and increases ping.

hep set to 0 makes no noticeable change but I will leave it on 0.

Check the original post for all the changes. A lot of work went into this. If anyone has anymore info, I would greatly appreciate it.

It would also be great if every shared the script they use with which network.
