and it really freaking worked! Sprint has been so so terrible in our area for about a year now, and many complaints have done nothing. I used the hero, evo, evo 3d, evo again, now photon. the internet has always sucked. even with the evo 4G hack that somebody posted. so i did this process and my internet is crazy fast now! no need to look for wifi to upload or download a pic (or just internet in general).
ok so i followed the advice that i posted as a link, and the only problem was that there wasn't the line of code there that i was supposed to edit. so, i just simply added it in the "persist" section and BOOM!! internet was on fire!! these were my results:
which was typical "top end" speeds i would get if i was lucky during the daytime.
After reboot...(you have to wait about 4 or 5 minutes for the settings to completely settle, i had 8 speed tests that were very similar to the above, then i saw this and shat myself)
now ALL my apps are working like lightning fast!!!
i am on motorola photon, cyanogenmod 7.2
