Attached below are fastboot and CWM images for a new radio that I just extracted from the Telstra 4.01 -> 4.04 OTA that was released yesterday.

The radio is DVLF1 (I9250TDVLF1) and has not been seen before.

This radio is best suited to 850mhz 3G networks.

radio-maguro-i9250t-dvlf1.img.zip MD5: 8CC3D43867076EE028BF758BD7B37F94

Only been running it for an hour so far and seems OK, but will post further feedback after a few days.

You can find a backup here. Keep in mind that unless your carrier uses the 850MHz frequency, the stock JB radio might be better for you.
Telstra's network uses 850mhz so should be fine on that band. Personally I'd only recommend this radio for Australian Telstra users.

Edit: just realized i misread your post and you said the same thing. :)

Can you please also pull and post the RIL, it makes sense to have them matched..you can find it in

system\vendor\lib\libsec-ril.so

Much appreciated.

Yeah no worries. I had already ripped it but hadn't gotten around to posting it yet. Here's the RIL zipped, and also a flashable CWM zip.

MD5 for libsec-ril.so: C5F26C3D9AEB859CB7F8B17F1DFA45B2
MD5 for the CWM zip: 652F2DACB2D755840ADE251C32321C81

Based on that MD5, it looks like it's the same RIL as XXLA2.

The original Telstra radio DVKK6 is awesome on 850mhz and the jury is still out on whether this new radio is any better, so if you're happy with that.. I don't see any reason to change.

From 24 hours use, this new radio seems very similar to DVKK6 and is performing well.. but it's not like there is a massive performance difference.

I just installed this radio and now I can't send SMS .....but I'm not 100% sure I didn't mess with a setting with 4636....can someone help with setting etc? Telstra in Melbourne, if that makes a difference.

Back to XXLF1 for me...

Gave this a try on 4.1.1 (Bigxie) but the reception on 3G was at least 10dBm lower (97+ vs 80-) throughout my tests, and it never left "3G" mode. Never switched to "H." Transfer rates were much slower, too - barely 1Mbps down, 100K up. Minutes later, 1.8Mbps down and 1M up on XXLF1.

It DID boot in the correct mode though - WCDMA Preferred.

The "International" JB radio/RIL works better for me; never had an issue with it, so I'm back on it.

Note: I did change the RIL to match the radio, so maybe if someone else tries this radio on JB they should keep the JB RIL and see if it makes a difference. I am in a congested cell, btw.

YMMV.

I suspect you've changed something in the service menu. Your SMSC might be incorrect. Try the fix below.

Telstra's SMSC is+61418706700 which must be entered in PDU format:07911614786007F0

- Open dialer
- Type *#*#4636#*#* then click on 'phone information', then scroll down to 'SMSC'
- click 'refresh'. If it is not 07911614786007F0, type it in and click on 'update'.
- Reboot.

    So, just to confirm.. you're using this just fine with Jelly Bean?

    Works fine with ICS and JB.

    Thank you very much
