    Its weird that a hybrid based on the .282 which allows me to switch between 2g and 3g would not work on att while the vanilla .282 would.
    Why would this be?
    Dont get me wrong i really love the hybrid thus far...the selection is just nice for certain situations

    It's not strange at all if one actually thinks about it.

    We (AT&T customers) know that 2G selection worked with 282 but not 266, 291 or the betas of 5.0.

    This hybrid is a mix of all of those releases.

    The 2G selection functionality is contained in a 282 cod file that had to be replaced by another version to either add other functionality or make the hybrid stable. You have to lose one to gain the other.

    Note that others (non-AT&T customers) have retained their 2G selection ability in this hybrid because their phones always have had this option available. IIRC, the only way to have that functionality present on AT&T is to actually go through the full blown unlocking procedure or to stick with plain, vanilla 282.

    I think I got that right...

    I guess i was being lazy and didnt connect the dots. I just figured that the base radio file was the only thing that was deciding if you could switch to 2g or 3g. But i should have knows it was a tad bit more complex

    Anyway sweet hybrid

    why does everybody love .266 so much, is it more stable than .282 & .291?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it is assumed that .266's radio code is generally more stable for 3g reception than the others. Which is true at least in my experience!
