    Nevertheless, I am back on MiRaGe 04/03 now and haven't had any reboots since yesterday afternoon. SMS lags not too bad either, but I haven't texted much today. In any case will it take more to get me off the IHO/MiRaGe goodness. I really do like this ROM, it's been an incredible workhorse for me. But in hindsight, I wish I hadn't flashed that update.

    I plan to write up my tests and conclusions for the devs this weekend.
    Very interesting. If this is true, it means the Sprint GB kernel (on which quattrimus is based) has the support necessary for the new ZV9 baseband.

    This might turn out to be a good reason to jump to the GB kernel for IHO.

    I was able to reproduce the reboot today while sending text messages one after another just to test. I have also tested the IScream kernel with CM7.2. It boots and seems to be working although it has a noticeably sluggish response. But the main problem is that the phone wakes up to a black screen after going to sleep. I have not figured out the cause yet. This is for discussing in a different thread.

    PEOPLE STAY AWAY FROM THIS UPDATE.

    Didn't realize you were using the GB kernel in quattrimus. Is the reason we aren't already using that in IHO because we didn't have the Sprint GB back then or what?

    Again, if there's anything you want me to test or try, I'm happy to do so. Just pm me.

    Its a very very strange update...
    To illustrate: EarthnFire78 has.has been helping me with updating bumblebee using the security update like you suggested mrg. Now, obviously I replaced the kernel, and when I replaces the kernel, other things broke (screen rotation, wifi, sd storage, some other things possibly). Now some old kernels had everything working but rotation and the iho kernels had rotation but the other things were broken.

    In an effort to get the wifi working, EarthnFire fixed the wireless.ko module so that the bobzhome kernel + the updated driver made wifi work for him. I took the same files and replaced them in the update, and wifi doesn't work for me.

    The point of this is that this update is just very strange... I went so far as to replace 90% of the files in the update with older known working files, and there were still problems.

    I'm thinking like mrg is saying, that this whole thing is a junk useless update, unless you need to return to stock.

    This thread is a mess. It's almost impossible to keep track of who flashed the radio-only update (which doesn't work), who did the non-working radio only update and are running IHO therefore seeing no issues because the update didn't actually take, or who flashed the full update (which DOES write the radio), or who flashed it correctly and just didn't see an improvement (which is also possible.)

    Even though airplane mode and SMS are the surest ways to reproduce the problem, clearly other things affect it. I think I mentioned in an earlier post how on a fresh and naked Mirage, it took many test cycles for me to reproduce it, whereas on a fully loaded phone it took only a few. Also, how I use the phone during the day affects it: Today I only sent a few SMS (and didn't see too much lag) and it still rebooted.

    Add to this Eollies point that phones are different hardware wise. I can testify to differences in radio performance even among OVs bought on the same day.

    Mrg described how he's had the update on three different OVs, yet he only saw the problem today once he set out to reproduce it with lots of texting.

    In other words: what people have on their phone and how they use it determine how likely they are to see the problem - even if it is latent in all radio-updated phones with IHO.

    I installed the zv9 update the complete way. I was running without any problems with the April 1st backside. Today I updated to the latest version with a clean install. I also replaced my sdcard. Now I also have the reboot problems that others are mentioning. My phone will reboot randomly when sending texts.

    I flashed the 3/24 build of mirage after doing the full security update, and ran it for several days with no reboot issues. Only once I updated to the 4/3 build, I started having problems the next day. I reverted to my nandroid of the 3/24 build and havent had any issues since.

    I have seen some evidence to prove this, but I have yet to see 100% proof of it yet.
    And don't tell me CDMA Workshop, even the other methods have proven to be inaccurate. We don't yet seem to have any sure way to tell for certain.

    The only real truly solid evidence I have seen is TheWraith420's post where he flashed Sprint then this and got nothing. Not that I doubt him, but I prefer more than one persons results, especially when I can point to several who have had success with this and knowing how flaky flashing, towers, and Virgin can be.


    And yes, I agree, it's a mess we have people cross posting in all three threads who have all used different methods, which only complicates it more.

    You and I havent always seen eye to eye, however I think what you do here is good stuff. But when testing things like radios and stuff placement of the device is VERY important. In a test environment they use mounts that keep the phone in a certain position and doesnt allow for moving the phone. Because of the fact turning or moving it slightly can affect this.

    Neither did the people dealing with the iPhone antennagate fiasco. Remember these phones have a built in antenna that is concealed inside the phone. There is no exterior antenna that is truly omni-directional. Therefore placement is very crucial.

    Yeah.. I'm not sure 100% but I think IHO came out before the Sprint GB update. So the froyo kernel was used. And it works so well there hasn't been any reason to change.
    I picked the GB kernel for ICS mainly because that's what Drew used. But I really want to update, as ICS plays nicer with a matching kernel.

    I thought Jerry was saying that the recoveries don't have the code necessary to flash the radio, and if you go through the full update, there is a separate "writing radio..." notification, followed by a reboot which brings up a little android dude and a progress bar, then another reboot into your actual phone. Flashing just the radio update does none of that, nor did I see the improvement (and vice versa, the problems with IHO) until I did the full update.zip flash.

    Obviously, I am not well versed when it comes to such advanced Android goodness, so forgive any "know it all" tones that may come from this, it's certainly not intentional. I just can't think in my limited knowledge what more proof is necessary that the radio update by itself doesn't work in our custom recoveries.

    Does anyone have ideas to what is causing the reboot issues?

    What we know so far is that reboots can happen after flashing the full VM9 zip:

    while running GB IHO Roms,

    normally after texting but also sometimes while placing calls or cycling airplane mode.

    When it reboots after sending a text the text always goes through and it always instantly reboots right after hitting the send button. ( maybe the speed which the text is sent is a factor? )

    ICS and Froyo ROMS seem to be unaffected by the reboot issue.



    If anyone would like me to test anything on my phone shoot me a private message.

    Oh, and also -- has anyone tried running an IHO ROM with GingerKernel? If this fixes the reboot issue, that would pretty much prove it's a kernel (in)compatibility issue.

    If someone has a good repro but not the skillz to transplant kernels, just reply and I'll try to get you going. I'll need a link to your ROM download.

    I'll try this for sure, I can usually reproduce this at will. I am on MiRaGe 04/03 which is downloaded from here . Problem is I am really busy today, it will probably be tomorrow. If anyone beats me to it, all the better...

    I've done the same thing and the reboots still happen. I recently had a reboot from using airplane mode so i sent the last_kmsg file to tdm so maybe he can make sense out of whats causing this issue.

    No Reboots or problems Here- Last night I did the full update by going to stock and seeing the message for "flash radio" during a reboot- and then re-rooting and going straight to Quattrimus Alpha7.

    If you did not see this "flash radio" message your phone has not changed at all.

    And by the way- the radio update has worked great for me. I traditionally have always gotten no signal in a basement where I work but my friend with a Sprint EVO got signal and 3g just fine. Today in the basement I not only just got signal but also 3G at 1 bar.

    If you have any questions or something for me to test let me know.
