    OK, I just tried it..

    Before it said V4.7.0.122 ( platform 4.0.0.153 )

    Now it says V4.7.0.122 ( platform 4.0.0.136 )

    So this means I have .109 installed correct?

    I thought the V4.7.0.122 would change to V4.7.0.109 ... if I chose the.109 radio

    The numbers are a bit confusing!


    EDIT:
    Couple more questions here....

    1) How are you guys checking your signal strength? Options / status?
    Mine reads -100 dBm is this good?

    2) Do these radio files have any effect on the 1XEV signal that seems to fluctuate drastically on my phone??

    So, which radio files were included in each of the .114 hybrids? I've had problems with v3.5, which is using the .122 sfi, right? I had great success on v3, which was using .113 I think. I don't recall what sfi v1 was using, and I never did load v2. I went straight from .75 to .114 v1 and found instant improvement. Going to v3 was the bomb though. v3.5 hasn't been good to me at all. I've had random reboots and a slow accelerometer.

Some have luck with one's, while others have problems with the same one's. That's the why there is 4 different 3.5 versions. The only difference is the Radio code. If you have the 3.5 hybrid, Your platform is .153. Which means that you have the .122 CDMA, or "Radio".
    Ok, now I'm confused. My platform is .136 and my OS is .122. Isn't this a .109 radio running on the 3.5 hybrid?

    Thanks.

    Yes that is correct. v4.7.0.122 (platform 4.0.0.136) means that you are running .122 Java with .109 CDMA (same as me). The sfi (or CDMA) file is what dictates the platform number. (.109 gives you platform 4.0.0.136, .122 sfi give you platform 4.0.0.153, etc.). The Java files dictate the version. example: .113 Java files would give you v4.7.0.113, .122 Java files gives you v4.7.0.122, etc.

    I believe
    v3.5 has .122 sfi
    v3 has .113 sfi
    v1 had .109 sfi

    Not 100% on that, crackman could tell you for sure

    .113 CDMA/sfi shows platform 4.0.0.144
    .122 CDMA/sfi shows platform 4.0.0.153
    .109 CDMA/sfi shows platform 4.0.0.136

    Shane maybe we should list somewhere all of the platform numbers for each SFI. That should clear up a lot of the same questions. I nominate pupp

    I was thinking the same thing. And maybe a link to download JUST the sfi/CDMA files, so that we don't have to download the whole os & install it, just to get the radio file & then have to deal with uninstalling/removing off our computer. Just a thought

    Thanks for clearing that up JP ..Just so these other questions don't become berry-ed (pun intended ) I'll post them again.

    1) How are you guys checking your signal strength? Options / status?
    Mine reads -100 dBm is this good?

    2) Do these radio files have any effect on the 1XEV signal that seems to fluctuate drastically on my phone??.




    also +1 on the link to download JUST the sfi/CDMA files!

    pretty sure signal range is -80 best to -115 worst. so tour rightabout in the middle.

    dont quote me on that though... hopefully one of the mods will have a definate answer

    Hmmm.. just found this info here so I figured I'd share...

    Change "5 Bar" display to signal power dBM - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

    For those who are technically oriented, as most BB Users are, and want MORE, here is an approximate tabulation of the # of Bars vs. signal level in dBM:
    1 bar ~ -102 to -120 dBM
    2 Bars ~ -93 to -101 dBM
    3 Bars ~ -87 to -92 dBM
    4 Bars ~ -78 to -86 dBM
    5 Bars ~ -40 to -77 dBM

    So Far I was happy with .109. but I think that .122 takes the cake.
