    Really enjoying your rom! Just wondering is there an easy way to install sprint visual voicemail? Also, and this is kind of nit picking, but the background image for the home screen looks kinda low res? Or is this just an issue on my end? *edit* I swear it wasnt there... Just found it. Sorry I'm stupid */edit*

    Anyone thinking of flashing this should! Everything has worked flawlessly, my GPS actually will get a fix in less than 75 minutes! Smooth sailing havent had one issue with it.

    Ok so first issue.

    I've mostly been using it home while connected to wifi so I never really noticed this. Once out and about i've noticed my 3g/4g speeds are significantly slower than normal.

    I downloaded the speedtest app by ookla and my ping is always around 500+ and my dl speed is 15kbps 3g U/l 22kbps... Havent been able to check 4g since my state has it literally in a 2-3 square mile radius...

    I also downloaded swiftkey keyboard from the market. I set it as default. Every time I type anything I get a notifcation in the bar saying select input method.]

    Thanks for your time!

    *edit* After several restarts the best result I got was 267 ping 137down 482 up on 3g but overall the results are pretty inconsistent.

    Haven't tried this rom, but:

    Update prl and profile and maybe try a different modem (if you flash a new modem update prl and profile again)

    The select input method thing is just how ics is now... Some devs have taken it out because many people such as you and me find it annoying and useless.

    Your ROM is awesome!! I am a noob but with a little research on my part I was able to understand your install instructions. Of course I had to figure out how to root my phone first but after that it was smooth sailing. Your ROM is very smooth and clean. Great job!! No more waiting on Sprint to release ICS for me.

    I did update my prl and profile. Prl us 60687. Download speeds still erratic especially 3g. Often getting less than 100kbps. 4G may have stabized a bit.


    Not sure which option is my current modem. Should be under system settings about phone correct?

    Well you answered your own question with that statement. You are still on EL29 Modem. Running the EL29 Modem with an ICS Rom isnt recommended cause of off the wall speed tests. I highly recommend you flash the FE16-22 modem. This rom uses the FE22 kernel so I guess go with FE22 Modem. Once you flash the modem inside my recovery included in the rom then reboot into recovery again and wipe cache and dalvik. Then reupdate your PRL and Profile then reboot again. You speeds will be much better after you do this

    Well thank you all for your patience first of all I really appreciate it!

    So if I downlad it from http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...PH-D710/Modems reboot into cwm I can flash the modem that way? Just go to install zip from sdcard same as a rom?

    Yup, just flash the zip and then update profile and prl when your phone boots up.

    My speeds are very fast and consitant on this rom for me. I might make you cry with what im pulling for 4G Speeds

    3G in my house. 221 ping DL 0.73MBps UL 0.41MBps
    3G again in my house 219 ping DL 0.71MBps UL 0.52MBps

    4G in my house. 107ping DL 14.2MBps UL 1.47MBps
    4G again in my house 98 ping DL 13.9MBps UL 1.48MBps

    Now it is possible my build.prop tweaks may not work for your area. I will remove the tweaks and make you a patch. In my area it does wonders for speed
