    Questions on location for Radio Signal, 1XEV and Memory.....

    I want to try a different OS for Signal and Memory would that be the CDMA Folder (sfi file)?? I dont know but it seems that the Signal is all over the place up and down and the 3G is constantly changing which it really didnt before and Memory Leak seems really bad. I just want to try different files from other OS's but not sure what file I would need to replace??

    Thanks in Advance!

    That is correct. Reception is controlled by the SFI file in the CDMA folder. You can easily swap that out with anyone you like.

    Yes the SFI can have an impact on battery life. If you're phone is constantly struggling to find a signal this will drain your battery. Some people loved 132 radio, personally I hated it. My favorites thus far have been the radio from 113 or 109.

    Is there an easy place to grap just that file without downloading the entire os
    Nevermind i'll figure it out, i need to think back and try and remember which one worked best for me... Believe it or not i actually made some notes after each upgrade and i remember 132 and 122 i didnt like the radio in them but i dont remember which one i noted giving 4 bars from my bedroom. One of them did the rest only 2 bars
    Thanks

    Signal strength was pretty good. I believe this one is the one that I had mainly 4 bars but when it dropped it went down as low as 1 bar in the worst areas in the mountains going home but I was still able to talk.

    141 drops calls all the time and the signal strength seems good but all of a sudden it drops down to no bars. And its not just once we are talking about numerous amount of times on the way home. I could be standing in front of a VZ Antenna and probably lose signal!! lol No but seriously it drops alot. So Ive made up my mind on switching.

    I dont remember how 132, 122 or 114 was? Does anyone remember? Anyways Ill be doing the 113 in the next few minutes so Ill post back but will not be able to really tell you my findings till I get home.

    Update: I just read that 132 had the signal dropping as well.
