What are the instructions for the new test mod you posted? Is it the same as mod 3 instructions? Thanks

it changes the default mtu size, mother do you know what the original size is on our phone? I can't seem to get any commands to tell me, this could actually be a way to make even Xbox live work through an x2 tether

According to the wiki it would seem 1500 is the standard for most devices. I know on most routers and things the MTU was usually around that number and lowering it usually slowed performance.

Googling found for me that cell phones are usually not 1500. Also that packet max size for Ethernetis 1500. Having your phone at 1500 could cause a slow down due to packets being sent oversize and not accepted then having to resend. That's some information I received from a pretty knowledgeable dev

Has anyone ever tried to set persist.ril.uart.flowctrl= to 20? I did and my x2 is also 3G turbocharged and it is really a substantial improvement

Running stock blur 2.3.6 on a mx2 did mod 1 and 3 so far there hasnt been much change ill keep fiddling around but i have notice a more stable connection when the addition was set to 2000

*edit*
Installed cm9 on my mx2 it seemed to have its own 3g mods in the build.prop. apended the first and third mods to the end and seems to run much faster now.

Does anyone possibly know how to get a consistent download or internet stream? I've bin using Network Monitor Mini Pro and I see that the kilobytes keep jumping up an down. For an example it'll start from 9 kilobytes to 40.50.80.150.40.9.0 so on an so on. I was wondering if anyone has figured out how to get it to kind of stay around the same number?

Disclaimer: I am not responsible with what you do with your phone or anything that results from my edit/mods.

Nandroid Backup! Its your friend!

READ ENTIRE POST

Mention what rom and mods u used with results in a post please! :)

**If you flashed mashup and miss your data speed you need to redo mod 1**

One user that was plauged with switch to 1x being reported it being eliminated by the mods

Confirmed working on MIUI, eclipse 1.2 & 2.0.3, stock 2.3.4 and CM7

Mod 1 "may" work on any other 3G phones, mod 2 when posted "may" work on other 3G MOTO phones.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mod 1

The Problem:
Since I do not have internet at home and I live in a poor service area any increase in 3G data speeds I can get is beneficial. So, I started looking into a way to increase my 3G data speeds.
Please let me know what rom you are using when you post something

Note: The first boot I did on some of these took a few minutes for 3G to first come up. Any reboots later it showed up immediately. I had no service issue and triangle once or twice while I was checking all of these. Reboot always fixed it.

The Solution:

First, nandroid backup prior to changing anything on your phone is a good policy to follow.

Most of the build.prop edits I’ve found are for GSM phones. I did find one thing that might help. I have confirmation from another source this hack works for them as well.

The line to be edited in build.prop which is in your /system/ folder by root explorer, root browser or any other editor/method of choice (make sure you backup your build.prop first):

Code:
persist.ril.uart.flowctrl=1

Change the “1” to “10”, save your build.prop, and reboot.

You can change the 1 to 1-10 and null or blank.


These are my results below in kb/s.

1=baseline 75-100 kb/s

0= no service – Don’t do this!
2-5 = 100 kb/s with some temp increases
6-9 = 150-200 kb/s
10 = 250-350 kb/s

A null value gives me 150-300 kb/s with large fluctuations.

I found that “10” gave me the best speed with most consistent results.

These speeds were clocked in actual large file downloads not a speed testing app.
I found that speed testing apps do not give accurate results. The real downloading gives real results.

Note: With this a tester was getting 500kb/s downloading a rom over 3G.

Please reply back with any results you find as I am looking for conformation of my findings.

If you try this in a different ROM please let me know your findings as well. This SHOULD work in any rooted X2.

Doesn't work on liberty for the moment. Gonna attempt it on fully stock liberty soon

Mod 2 - Can be used along with Mod1
Atrix lib replacement mod

This mod I found helped with increasing data speeds in my poor service location as well as an increase in speed in a good service location

Signal at a horrible -102 dBm I was getting a consistant 200kb/s download where I only had 100kb/s before using this in conjunction with mod 1 at a value of 10

Signal at a nice -62 dBm I got a nice 400-500kbs consistant download speed where I only had 250-300kb/s before using this in conjunction with mod 1 at a value of 10
Note: You may see a better increase as I am a huge data user and subject to network optimization by evil red.

This mod at my house also stopped my phone from jumping between two towers. One with a -130 signal and the better with a -102.

The attached file is an Atrix lib_motoril.so file. It is a different file from our stock blur file. It is about 50kb smaller in size then any X2 blurbased non-port rom file I found. It was given to me to try by a Alien port user after talking with him about his nice data speeds and connections prior to any modifications.

This is a fairly easy file swapping mod.

Download the attached atrix lib and extract wherever you want.

Navigate to the /system/lib/ folder in a file manager of choice and either backup by placing a .bak after the .so of the original libmoto_ril.so file.

Go to where you extracted the Atrix lib file. Copy and paste that file to your /system/lib folder and then set permissions to the rw-r--r-- for it..

Reboot and let me know if you had the same good results as me.

Thanks to kinevil for the atrix lib and idea to try this file!


I make sure BSR is installed before I try anything so I can do a battery pull and get into BSR. Wipe cache and dalvik if any issues come up first then you can always nandroid after that if needed.

Mod 3 - May help with connection stability. Not speed.

Easy build.prop addtion

In a fike manager such as root browser and root manager got to /system/ and open your build.prop to edit.
Add the following line.

Code:
ro.mot.eri.losalert.delay=

The standard mod for this us 1000. Feel free to play around with it. Please post your results.

Happy modding!



Not only did this increase my 3g speeds on my Mototrola Photon 4g, it made my signal go from 1-2 bars at my house to 5 bars!! All I did was method #1. It was like night and day after a reboot!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

    Below are my results using speedtest:

    Before mod/reboot: .50 down. .55 up
    1 min after mod/reboot: .70 down. .14 up
    6 min after mod/reboot: 1.13 down. .52 up

    So it seems better. Not sure on the fluctuations after mod though. I'm sitting at my desk at work and haven't moved and all this was completed in a 10 min window. Thoughts?

    I've done 1 & 2 with marginal results. Where should I add the line in build.prop? Just anywhere or below mod 1?

    where the hell is the build.prop located? I cannot for the life of me remember where it is!!!

    I found the build.prop but what the hell am I editing? I am sorry but i dont understand. I see a long list of things and am unsure what exactly needs to be edited
