Hi all !
Here is a thread for all Radio version available for Topaz device.

For the Newbies here:
The radio ROM is responsible for Wifi, phone signal, GPS. Changing the radio ROM can improve your phone (or make it worse) regarding Wifi sensitivity, phone signal availability, GPS satellite receiving and GPS lag.

Unfortunately there is no confirmed measurement available yet to tell you which radio ROM is the best for you. It depends on the OS ROM you use, the region you are living and your personal needs.

Recommended radio
4.49.25.17 has received good feedback from Germany, Brasil, Hongkong, GreatBritain, Italy, Austria, Netherlands, India, Bulgaria, Singapore, France, China.
4.49.25.57 got as well good feedback. I saw now difference on 4.49.25.88 and it needs CID/Security unlock, because it comes from Rhodium.
2.49.25.204 got some good feedback from Croatia. Some users report problems with Wifi WPA.
4.49.25.91 got good feedback from Europe, Japan, USA. This ROM is my recommendation!

How to flash a radio?
either
  • Use included CustomRUU for flashing from your PC
or
  • Rename radio to TOPAIMG.nbh, copy to your SD-Card, go to bootloader (Reset with VolumeDown pressed)
How to benchmark a radio?
Difficult, we do not have a real good method yet.
  • Thanks to akirius we have a tool to see Cellar System Available------Cellular System Connected------Signal Strength(percent)------Signal Strength RAW(percent). You can get it from this post.
  • You can use the FieldTest application. Check the values RRSI 1 or AGC (under WDCMA). Check this post and the followings to learn more about it.

* Wiki Radio version for Topaz HERE


If u found any newest version available , just pm me for an update of this page and the WIKI!

BeeGee !

What are the main differences between Radio version v4.47.25.21 and v4.47.25.31?
Does somebody know that?
I'm now using the v4.47.25.21 radio and my battery life is very good.
thank you :)

thank you :)

I was using the .21 and I was happy with receiption quality and battery life.
Testing at the moment the .31 and cannot see any difference.

But I am on Japanese network, so the improvements might be for other regions.

Hi,

flashed 4.47.25.31 yesterday (from 3.46.25.18). Using Topaz WM 6.1 Stock ROM (germany).
Provider: (germany) blau.de (using the "e-net", as e-plus and o2)

Having the same issues i had with every 4.X-ROM 'til now. General receiving quality is between "ok" and "bad", sometimes the device loses connection to the provider completely.

Data-connections switch excessively between "3G" "E" "G", causing many data-transfer-pauses and really often connection-losts (even when it shows 2 bars of signal-strength), so i have to reconnect manually.

gps seems fine so far. wlan works as i'm used to it ;)
Battery life (compared to 3.46.25.18) seems better.

nevertheless, it just seems as if the 4.X Radio-ROMs don't play good with a WM6.1 (stock) ROM. At least not for me, causing the same troubles every time.

I'm going back to 3.46.25.18 when i come home later, as this one is a lot better (for me) when it comes to signal quality and keep-alive of data-connections... :)

edit: Interestingly enough, after having posted the above text my device is running well currently. The weather has become better and the overall signal quality seems to be higher - so it seems, that the 4.x radios behave different in poor signal areas.
