I thought I might share the updated radio, modem and environment files from oxygen os. So I made this flashable zip. I have tested it on my device and working with cm12 nightly right now. So hope it will work on yours too.

tested os with this firmware: CM12 nightly, Blisspop, CM12.1, Oxygen OS, Temasek rom, euphoria, Tugapower V5

Note: There is some changes I noticed. there is new file called reserve4.img which is being flashed in "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/reserve4". And also the previous sdi.mbn file from "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/dbi" is missing. Now I checked the updater script in oxygen os and noticed that its not removing the old sdi.mbn. Its just installing the reserve4.img as an addon. So I kept both the files in the flashable zip and it seems to work good. No issue so far.


Caution: DO NOT USE IT WITH CM11/CM11s/or ANY KITKAT ROM!
It will brick your device. Only flash on lolipop based roms. After you flash this, if you want to go back to cm11/cm11s, flash the latest cm12 nightly first and then install the cm11s files.

But then if you want to go back to the old modem Cyano ... How should we do ??? But by flashing this new modem, you have to flash even the Fix for Proximity Sensor?

might be able to get away with changing the tz check script in the cm update zip if you've flashed this.


if youre using a custom build then might get your dev to change the tz version check to at least 1.09 rather than specific as the new is 1.39

Thank for sharing this modem.
I'm not sure if it's a placebo effect or the OxygenOS modem really works better.
Anyway it feels better and thanks for that. :)

I just flashed it over the last nighlty blisspop http://downloads.blissroms.com/Blis...lissPop-v2.3-bacon-OFFICIAL-20150403-0935.zip - and it's working like a charm ...
Yeah the signal is more stable and faster to lock LTE here, and also 3G ... i can notice when i loose wifi and it changes to mobile data plan ... let's see if keeps like this.

Btw, everytime i flash new blisspop i should flash this modem / radio again !? right !?

    what is this modem and radio firmware actually? can someone pls explain? does it improve performance?

    Thanks in advance
    Due to wireless regulations you can not allow apps to have direct control of the radio on your phone. The radio is the part that talks to the cell towers and stuff. So, the firmware drivers control the radio outside the jurisdiction of Android and your apps. The Android OS talks to the radio firmware using a serial link between the chips using a command set similar to the old Hayes external modems. Basically, thats what your cell phone does to talk on cellular networks... it has a built in modem.

    So, it wont make your phone go any faster, but if you have call quality issues or dropped signals, then the modem firmware is what you upgrade.
