    Default Best rom for signal strength?

    I live in phoenix and ever since I got my gs3 back in September. I frequently get only 1-2 bars or im roaming. Is there a rom or radio combination that will or can increase the radio or signal strength?

    I would try one of the many different radios. Roms shouldn't make that big a difference.

    My 2 cents... I think my reception was better before I went to LJ7. Been meaning to do some playing around with prev versions, but have not had the opportunity yet.

    Hey, jrsoit... any feedback so far?

    Also, what should the process be when changing modems in terms of wiping or fixing permissions?

    Shouldn't have to do any wiping or fixing permissions. Just flash. Clark44 has a nice modem flasher which has all the modems included in a single flashable zip. When you flash the zip it gives you a list of modems to choose from.

    Edit: just talked to Clark. The last modem he added was LI3. He said he would update it soon.

    Here's the link...

    Skunkape... Thanks for the info. Always appreciate your help.

    So far I have about 6 hours on LI3, and thus far it seems to be a bit better than LJ7 in some of the areas of low signal strength. Will get a couple more days usage and post back.

    So far ive had better service by 1 or 2 bars in the areas in Chandler and Tempe I was having issues with. LI3 seems to be a little better then LJ7 haven't tried other older radios yet. Battery life has been about the same if not better cause im not roaming in the places I was.

    I just downloaded each radio zip to my ext sd card from therenegadennail's post above and I did wipe my caches just in case but did nothing else but flashed the zip in cwm recovery...rebooted and started using after I confirmed the radio changed.
