BLACKSTONE RADIOS - All of these radios have been tested and work. I highly advise flashing radio's via MicroSD card.

The Following has been copied out of AllTheWay post http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3508408&postcount=365

I have been noticing in the Raphael community there has been a lot of talk of changing the rilphone.dll file when flashing to a new radio.
I was able to get a GPS signal lock with the radio and .dll file in under 10 seconds using first Quick GPS then loading up Google Maps. Calls are also very clear as well.
Currently I am using radio 1.12.25.16 with the rilphone.dll file that I downloaded from here.

If you would like to read more information on what the rilphone.dll does read this post by Da_G

Here is Microsoft's explanation of it

Aa919462.cd349ea0-741a-47ef-a8c2-248f32b49e53%28en-us,MSDN.10%29.gif


When a module first registers with the RIL, it passes in two callback functions. One is used for unsolicited notifications, and the other is used for responses to function calls. For example, when the phone receives a new incoming call, the RIL uses the unsolicited notification callback to notify each module about the incoming call.
When a module calls the RIL to get the signal strength, the function call immediately returns a response identifier. The RIL uses the function response callback to convey signal strength information to the module. To ensure that response callbacks are correctly matched with function calls, this callback structure also contains the same response identifier value that is returned by the original function call. This asynchronous architecture simplifies the RIL implementation. If a module needs to call a RIL function in a synchronous manner, it needs to make the function call and block until the module receives the function response callback.

Very good radio!!! Finally I don't have a problem with using 3G. Now is three bars of signal strenght in places where was two. Aslo, this radio fixed problem with "The person is temporary unavailable". For me working very fine. Now I can use 3G all the time.

Sorry for my English.

can I just confirm something.

I have flashed several radios on my old TP using hardSPL and then flashing the radio. The process for this seems to be different (RUU signed etc).

do I not need to have HardSPL installed first? Can I just run the RUU (with the new nbh file in the same directory)? as per the instructions in the wiki?

thanks

Oh, please... this thread is not very large yet to read it over.

You can't flash it without HSPL or USPL, unless you want to install full Arabic ROM and have a device with HTC__J15 CID.

No 3G doesn't work in the usa with this radio. Im using it and get no 3G. Radio is very good besides that. 3G in the us might only work when we're able to use the radio from an american HTC Diamond.

Signal is great. GPS is also.

how to install this? is there any risk to brick the phone or cause the system mulfunction?


First I would read the first post.
Then I would read the whole thread to see if anybody has bircked there device.
Then I wouldre re-read the first post
Then I would go to the wiki page that is in the first post
Then I would follow the instructions that are in the wiki page that is in the first post.

Sorry but some of us spend a lot of time doing a lot of work to make life easy for others and I find it hard to find time to answer questions that do not need to be asked.

    Thanks for the link, the new radio seems better so far. I had no problem figuring out how to install it, but maybe it is a good idea to include the Custom RUU in the download so that less experienced users wouldn't have to search for it.

    You are correct. We should come up with a standardized format on how to label the .nbh radios.

    The best way to flash anything and especially radio's is from MicroSD card. It is the safest way. That why I didn't repackage the .zip file with the Custom Ruu.

    All I did was link the original ruu_signed.nbh that I downloaded. :)

    Hum... from this post, it seems the letter after the radio protocol (W, H or U) is actually not for the network type but for the band type...
