In my experience, I have only tried 1.25.03, 1.25.05, and 1.25.08 on my MDA Compact IV with Swift's V7.0 Full Rom (recommended!)

Out of those three, .08 appears to give me the most stable (and slightly better HSDPA) signal on T-Mobile UK in the south.

I can't say I have noticed any difference in battery life between .05 and .08, both of which are approx (IMO) 30% better than .03

GPS aquisition - maybe a tad faster on .08, but I reckon it is impossible to make any reasonable judgement. I have certainly had no problems with acquisition on any of them, with all of them acquiring within 30 secs.

WIFI - I use a WPA2 encrypted network, and have never got my diamond to connect with any rom or any radio - it times out on the first key exchange so I cannot really comment at this time.

Hope that helps someone.

Reverted back from .08 to .05 after a couple of days. Seems that .05 is better for me: better UMTS signal reception.

ROM: Swift 7.0
Country / Provider: NL / KPN
GPS: .05 and .08 perform similar
UMTS: .05 is better than .08

judging from these posts i think i'll have to try .08 too, i was on .03 as stock and i've changed to .05 and it was stable enough to not go back, however, an increase in HSPDA would be nice :)

has is ever been clearly determined if there is a Radio Rom upgrade that will take a European Diamond and get it to function on 3G with ATT/Cingular in the US? If so, which one?

has it been clearly proved? i have not seen any real proof that it works or does not work. users here say they know and it sooo obvious, but still no written proof. its been a while since that US version has been around and not 1 peep. so, i really just gave up. even with edge speed my phone still fux up any device that comes near. :p

.08 rocks!

Well, I had bought the Touch Diamond EURO version, not realizing what I was doing. I live in Anchorage, Alaska, USA, I did the Dutty Rom, HardSPL, etc..
Then I went to the .08 radio, WALLA!
Where I had 1 bar or no service, now I have 5 bars.
I am gonna make a donation to Dutty! This is AWESOME!!!
Up here in AK, soon, we will have 3G via AT&T also SUPPOSEDLY!!
These threads ROCK!!!!

You can keep the original ROM and update the Radio.

You need to Hard SPL your Diamond (look in stickies for instructions) then download a radio and install.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DONE HARD SPL FIRST!!!

otherwise you will end up with a Diamond shaped paperweight :rolleyes:
