    Flash Alpha 7 or 8 of CM9. (conformed on allpha8 by drm1992)

    When it's all booted, open up Play and download ES File Explorer.

    Press the Menu key, go into Settings, and check 'Root Explorer' and 'Mount system as r/o writable' (or something like that).

    Tap 'Favorites' and click on the little phone icon with a / under it.

    Tap the 'system' folder.

    Tap 'build.prop' and it will ask you what to open it in, choose ES Note Editor.

    Find the line that says "#ro.telephony.ril.v3=signalstrength,skipbrokendat acall,facilitylock,datacall,icccardstatus,1"

    Delete the #

    Press the Menu button, tap 'Save' and reboot your phone.

    Done.

    Apparently it fixes 3g dropping and mms not working... I haven't tried it yet, but it seems iffy since you would have thought tdm would have implemented this into his build....

    I only advised Alpha 7 because I thought I remembered reading people having issues with Wi-Fi and other things being broken that weren't in A7. If A8 works for you, go for it.

    Glad I could be of some help. Credit for the fix goes to eletendre84. Hit the thanks button on this post: http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...ml#post1714914

    edit -- It should be noted that if you are running one of the AOKP builds that doesn't have root access, you'll need to flash those Superuser binaries first, as this requires root.

    Whats the difference between a blue 4G icon and a gray one?

    grey means searching for signal

    From my usage of CM9, it is SUPPOSED to turn blue, it's a bug in our ROM, sometimes it will and sometimes it won't. Rest assured, after applying this fix, you have 3G. Icon or not.

    Huh? That's a sprint rom. There's gotta be extra steps other than just flashing it.

    You can flash any Spring rom on a V.


    They are perfectly the same. Just different keys, and radios.

    Froyo roms will boot, but no data.

    As long as it's a CM7 rom, or CM9. Remember, Flash at your risk, and the keys will be switch.
