What's your country / operator? Any idea if this works with both SIMs active?

The module edits lots of props so you might want to tweak some settings depending on your carrier. My modem speed went down 50%. I noticed a lot of settings from chinese mbn settings in EFS I had to edit.

persist.vendor.radio.mbn_load_flag=3

Does this prop indicate which mbn gets loaded? I noticed I got the third mbn of the oem_sw.txt

I was working on my own version too but it seems this person has more knowledge. This module, however, doesn't have 'AUNZ' or 'common/wildcard' mbn. Not sure if deliberate or a mistake. 'AUNZ' is for Australia (doesn't work on New Zealand despite the 'NZ') and 'common/wildcard' is for generic unlisted carriers, but I guess wildcard isn't needed if it forces the phone to load a certain mbn that has 5G enabled?. I'm gonna use their code on my own one and see as well.

Dear all,
someone tried this module in Middle East? Like Saudi, Qatar, Kuwait? or out of China?
Thank you,

I have US version of P5 but I want to enable the 5G in those regions.

This is my take. My one adds Korean carriers mbn files as well.

For some reason, after installing the Pixel March Update, my device on EFS Explorer keeps showing up as "SW_DEFAULT" where it doesn't even have a carrier_policy file and changing SIM cards does not change it back to WILDCARD nor disable 5G.

@swangjang someone said the same thing on one of the other 5G threads. I wonder if it was done on purpose by Google or by accident.

@swangjang any tutorial that i can add my own country's MBN file into the zip file? I found the MBN file in other threads. Thanks for your consideration.

Go deep into the /system folder until you reach /Pixel. Inside, you will see folders of different countries. Look at the folder naming structure of other countries and make one for yours following the same structure and put your mbn file inside.
Then go back to before the /Pixel folder to /mcfg_sw where you'll find the mcfg_sw.txt file. Open that and type in the path to the mbn file you added, following the same structure as others.

Otherwise, you can send it to me either attached (the whole folder) or the link of the forum you found it and I'll update it to mine :)

@swangjang I'm still waiting on the Verizon March Update so I haven't changed from the February security patch yet I was thinking about side loading the Google March OTA to see if anything changes so when I get off from work in a couple of hours I will do it and let you know if anything changes.

That would be great! Would be interesting to see if this is google's new way of deterring people from manually editing their carrier files

    Ok here's my guide. I think it's best we don't start another 5G/Volte thread so maybe laughterwym can reference this post in the first post of this thread.

    1. Download EfsTools modded and extract.
    2. Put the correct mcfg_sw.mbn in the EfsTools folder. Download the mcfg_autoselect_by_uim file and also put it in the EfsTools folder.
    3. Flash the Volte module in Magisk (doesn't really matter wheter your mbn is in it, as long as it has the right system props and more important disables the qril stuff that) (Both this module and this module are working for me. You can also find the modded module I used here. I'n my modded module I set the 5G connection to NSA so use that one if your carrier doesn't support SA yet.
    4. Connect your phone to your computer with usb debuggin on in your developer settings. Make sure you have both qualcomm drivers and google usb drivers and of course the latest platform tools (and add the dir to your system path).
    5. Use the workaround we normaly use to connect our phone to qpst:

      Code:
      adb shell
      su
      resetprop ro.bootmode usbradio
      resetprop ro.build.type userdebug
      setprop sys.usb.config diag,diag_mdm,adb
      diag_mdlog
      cancel (ctrl+c) once it starts to "hang" at failed to open diag socket
      change usb config (file transfer, no file transfer)

    6. Open a command prompt in the extracted efstools folder

    7. Run the following command
      Code:
      EfsTools.exe efsInfo

    8. You will get errors because of the hacky workaround we have to do with Pixel phones to use them with efs software. In my case everything worked like a charm. You can check efs explorer after writing your mbn to see if it looks allright.

    9. Run the following commands one by one:
      Code:
      EfsTools.exe writeFile -i mcfg_autoselect_by_uim -o /nv/item_files/mcfg/mcfg_autoselect_by_uim
      EfsTools.exe writeFile -i mcfg_autoselect_by_uim -o /nv/item_files/mcfg/mcfg_autoselect_by_uim -s 1
      
      EfsTools.exe uploadDirectory -i mcfg_sw.mbn -o / -v
      EfsTools.exe uploadDirectory -i mcfg_sw.mbn -o / -s 1
      The -s 1 options are there so we write configurations for the second sim slot.

    Important note: If you have a carrier that uses NR-NSA you'll have to edit lte_feature_restrictions.xml in EFS explorer to get everything right. I've uploaded the file here. If your mcc isn't in the following list you'll have to add it;
    Code:
    <plmn_list name="dss_plmns" ns="global">
          228-01 505-01 505-11 505-39 505-71 505-72 204-04 204-08 204-69 204-12 262-02 204-16 204-20 232-03 232-04 232-07
        </plmn_list>

    Your VoLTE, VoWiFi, ims settings and 5g should be working now! Some carriers have very short carrierpolicy.xml, mine only says dds is enabled. Keep that in mind when you use apps to monitor your connection. 5G is working on my phone but I see empty rat stuff. Currently I'm writing code for changing lte_faeture_ca.xml to add all the information other Carriers have on the phone. Once you start tweaking it's hard to stop right?

    Please share your findings! I'll update this post when I remember something usefull so your feedback is very helpfull!

    The android 12 developer preview 3 is packed with more carrier settings. All carriers in the Netherlands have support and they updated the expired apn settings. I found a carrier policy containing a very detailed list for europe with 5G support.

    I suspect they are included with the upcoming may patch. I didn't expect Google tot fix this, a very pleasent surprise!

    How exactly does this module work? I already have standalone 5G, as well as VoLTE

    After some inspection , simply the module will clear radio cache , replacing the mbn file with 5G unlocked one , then enabling VOLTE

    Recently I've received an invite to closed Facebook group Pixel Superfans, which is managed by Google.
    I've asked in a post, is there any logical reason to block 5g/VoLTE for countries where they sell the phone officially. Even more, the users which living in these countries are travel over the world. How they can explain to their valuable users why they can't use the services outside the whitelisted countries.
    And without any surprise Made by Google user remove me from the group immediately :)
    Google is very nervous when received non comfortable questions.
    Oh man I wish you had a screenshot of that! Any way possible you could re-join the group with a different account and try again?
