Whats wrong?

Either the zip is not signed or is corrupted, are you using stock recovery to flash it or ClockWorkMod?

This morning I rolled back to 7. 08.35.21.

I had been on both the radio with CM6.1 nightly and on the CM6.1 rc2 recently which seemed to include this radio. On both I was experiencing poor performance in switching beteeen 3G and 2G in low coverage areas and as a consequence was seeing significantly high 'time without signal" in the battery cell standby section. it was also obvious as you waited for data to transmit on 3G when there was no coverage but it refused to fall back to 2G.

I tried messing around in the testing area with WCDMA and GSM auto PRL but without much luck. same results.

I am wondering if something has changed in the algorithms used to calculate when to switch to 3G or fallback to 2G.

I'll test this over a week and see how it goes.

I'm on Optus in Australia.

We are not distributing a radio image with CM and as long as core functionality does not depend on a specific version we are not going to do so.

I did update a library which definitely causes problems with data connection freezing. This is reported in the following bug:

I'm still investigation this issue, but at the moment I have no idea what HTC changed in newer libraries that might cause failure.

I upgraded from stock HTC Legend radio to this one and I now have signal at my desk at work. Before it was like the black hole of Calcutta.

Vodafone Australia, Froyo Stock (well, as stock as possible)

Call me paranoid but HTC did make our job a hard one in the past .

Using this radio with CM 6.1 RC 2 and a MNVO, the real provider ( is shown and the roaming icon doesn't appear in Vodafone network. Roaming works though automatically while being abroad.

But I am not able to do a manual search for networks (directly after selecting the item, an error occurs). Any guesses whether this is connected to the Radio or CM?
