Wondering why you keep posting in here when Wambo clearly asked for this thread to be locked/deleted. To me that clearly means he doesn't want any updates posted here. Unless I'm misunderstanding his intent.
True and by all means if Wambo wishes for there to be no mention at all of his ROMs here, I will comply. However, the Evo forum has been dead of late and many users have no idea of where to find Jellybean ROMs. My posts are a simple FYI to assist them in finding current development.
I then realized something: when i go to system settings>about phone>status, my IP address is "unavailable" and bluetooth address is unavailable when I'm off my wi-fi network. Could this be the cause of my problem not being able to connect to sprint's 3G data?
Edit: my bluetooth address became available when I turned BT on (duh)... and I also get an IP address when I connect to my wi-fi network.
So my question remains: is the sprint network unable to recognize my phone to grant me an IP address so I can get 3G access? Or does this issue have to do w/ the rom install?
As was already stated, you have to be on a Sprint-based Sense ROM for the refresh signal to do anything. Booting up such a ROM and updating your data profile will fix you right up. There's no way to fix it while on an AOSP-based ROM.
Now that this latest build has settled in I gotta say it doesn't get much smoother than this for Jelly Bean on the OG EVO. There hasn't been any reboots and there's zero lag. I've been running official CM10.1 nightlies on my Galaxy Tab 2 for a while and this ROM feels just as smooth!
