    Default [APP] Roam Control Optimus (NO ROOT REQUIRED)

    Hey guys,

    Here is a basic beta application that gives you access to roam control. Please report any bugs in this thread.

    Also, this application is now featured in Reborn ROM, give it a shot. It also needs a lot more work because I am by no means an application developer and learned everything you see here in the last two days.

    If this helped you out remember to thank my post.

    EDIT: The updated app with new icon and name is called LS670_Roaming.apk (thanks zefie).

    Congratulations Nick, you're now a ROM cooker AND app developer .

    I already had access because I use LauncherPro, but downloaded this and it seems to work great. I'll delete my shortcut in favor of this app, because now if I switch launchers I'll still have it.

    Now code us a toggle widget !

    That's the plan. I'm glad that it worked. I did not even get a chance to test it so I'm surprised that everything is working correctly. I should have a new Optimus by tomorrow afternoon. Until then I can read up on app/widget development and get ready for the work week.

    Kinda scares me that you bricked your phone...hopefully not indicative of your app coding skills!

    Cool that you're looking into widget development....I looked at it a bit, wondering if I could do it myself, but with no programming experience whatsoever, I don't think it's something I can pick up in a few days...

    Sent from my Optimus S...excuse the spelling mistakrs

    Does this offer Roam only?

    Sweet! There's apparently a paid app in the market to do this, but I don't use it enough to warrant paying for it. Just good to know I have it when in weak areas.

    I wonder if Roam Control on the market uses the same/similar exploit that I do.. Guess I'll never know.

    Roam control in the market requires root I am assuming this doesn't

    Correct, this does not require root. So I guess it has a whole different method.

    I figured as much...I wonder is there a way to code for Android on a Mac? I've ALWAYS wanted to learn how...any tips?

    Yeah- its all based on java and platform agnostic.

    Get yourself the Eclipse environment, its free and the one Google recommends (so most of their guides are using Eclipse for screenshots, etc). Available for just about any computing platform in existence.

    Then, download the SDK for mac, and start reading the tutorials. I would recommend getting a good book (Android development for Dummies, etc) because its easier to follow along than reading the tutorials online when you're just starting out.

    Good job on the app, Nick! Post to the market yet?

    I have times when I only have 1 bar sprint signal, and it occasionally flicks over to roam, which will have more bars. This is annoying, because it's constantly going back and forth, and making calls while on the weak Sprint signal causes dropped calls, etc. In that situation, I'd lock it into Roam so it stops trying to connect to the weak sprint signal.

    This app is just a shortcut to allow you to access the menu with the "Roam only" option so you can lock it into roam.

    Exactly. I find it is also very useful if driving through an area with spotty signal, and you want to make sure you don't drop the call during your drive.

    It's great for me at work where Verizon's network signal (roaming for Sprint) is plentiful, but Sprint's network is weak...but just strong enough to cause the phone to switch between them all day. As mentioned, that causes inconsistent call connections, and it also absolutely kills the battery.

    Wondering why you are waiting for it to hit the market. It is possible to install it right now. Download a file manager like Astro from the market first, then download this app to your phone. Navigate to the "download" folder on your SD card in Astro, click on the app, hit "Install", and there you go.

    Default No 3G when forced roam

    Hello. I downloaded the apk and when I force the roam to roam, it does not connect to EVDO but only 1X. When I have the phone on automatic and it roams automatically when there is no Sprint native signal, it roams and connects to 3G but it will NOT do this when I force it to roam. Do you know why this would do this only when I force to roam and not when it roams automatically?

    I did not mess with the other settings in there either.
