Update with paulobrein G2X pre-dexopt patch

OK. I did not originally create this, however I did the mod on other phones.
I have attached a file for the ones like me where 5 gigs of unlimited (oxymoron) data is not quite enough. I can not get CW to work with mount/data, so I went with this method :):

1. DO A BACKUP FIRST!!!(The first time I did this I went in to never ending boot loop!

2. Download file, extract it, and place it on your SD or Internal memory. (Just remember where you put it.)

3. Go to settings, Wireless & networks, mobile networks and check everything except "Use only 2G networks". (When you do this you will not be able to access this again.)

4. You must have Root Explorer installed.

5. Open Root Explorer and go to the service file you downloaded. Hold down over it and select copy.

6. Now go to system/framework, click Mount R/O and select paste. Select yes to overwrite the file.

7. Close out of everything and go to Rom Manager and select "Fix Permissions".

8. Reboot and you should be good to go.:)

Proof for all the skeptics. Look at the download speed, time and battery %:



ONLY USE THIS WITH THE STOCK ROM!!!View attachment 579089

The stock one. Did paulobrien edit the services.jar? If not the only files removed were the 7 throttle files, so it should work together. At least mine does. I loaded his after I fixed mine.

So how exactly does this prevent TMO from receiving data info from your device? Does this block the IMEI? I ask because I know a lot of people who've tried and failed in bypassing TMO's ability to throttle your device.

I thought back when this came up in the Vibrant forums that it didn't affect the communication with T-Mobile, it just removed the software command to the phone to throttle down. I could be dead wrong however. I do most of my online work while on wifi, so I've never had a need for this.

I can say it works! My wife has over 9gigs on her phone now. T-mobile sends you the text that they are slowing you down, however there are 7 files in the service jar that are used to activate this.

There was an extensive data throttling thread a few months ago (which I think is closed) where throttling files and other counter files were removed/modified, but nothing was effective at the end. It was the the opinion of most that the throttling was done on the TMo servers. Some posters even moved their SIM to another device, but after initially working, throttling came back.

I will be surprised if this stops or restores throttling. Someone who is near the cap will have to give it a try to see if it works.

also coming from a vibrant trying EVERYTHING to make there methods work
from:
edited service.jars
to VPN change
to signal tower change
to keeping wifi on and then leaving the wifi area

i will only say this once.....

YOU CANNOT DEFEAT THROTTLING (T-mobiles throttling)

not doubting your work but its highly doubtful this will work with everyone


after trying all of the vibrant methods and even some of my own... i ended up being throttled for 3 months straight.... they couldnt even fix it........ thats how a got the G2x cuz i was ready to cancel (they where gonna waive the ETF) and offered me a phone for the wrongful 3 month throttle

if this does work... (trust me i will be trying it as im @ 1.6GB of data ATM)
i will donate!

thanks in advance if it works
if it doesnt good try!

(im not trying to sound Ignorant but this really hasnt worked sense the G1 days)

its true... ive dealt with A LOT of "android specialist" (i use that word freely cuz half the time they dont know what the F is going on)

and every service ticket/help desk ticket they said they put on my account was sent through THEIR "engineers" they have to remove/fix it from the server to the tower..... so again... not to sound ignorant or arrogant but its highly unlikely (even though i wish it would work) it will work

I'm looking forward to the test.

Post up a speedtest result along with the throttling text.

Maybe a screen of the t mobile my account app's data readout.

The way the battery meter is thin with the percentage. Its an option in cm7. Its def gingerbread or gb theme....but it looks like cm7. And since we don't have any roms out its just a guess
