    Anyway, was browsing through the stock rooted TouchWiz ROM nandroid I had stored on my external SD to see how much bloat TouchWiz really has. However, this sparked my curiosity:

    LTETest.apk-screenshot_2013-05-13-16-13-05.png

    As far as I know, the T-Mobile SGSII variant packs a 1.5 Ghz Dual-core Qualcomm Scorpion CPU and a Qualcomm S3 SoC with Adreno 220 GPU, the SoC which can support LTE and 42mbps HSPA+. Also, since the SGSII is obviously NOT set for T-Mobile LTE support, I was just wondering why it is contained within the official 4.1.2 update if this handset will never see LTE in its life. Did T-Mobile forget to remove this file?

    So, any thoughts about it?

    **UPDATE: Nevermind, just found out that the T-Mobile SGSII is using the MDM8220 variant of the S3 SoC, which was a dedicated dual-carrier HSPA+ solution, added to the fact that the SGH-T989 simply doesn't have the required antennas and modem for LTE Qualcomm Now Sampling Industry. However, the question still stands: why does TouchWiz contain this file if LTE is impossible on our device?**

    What do you mean 'developer'? This was a screenshot from the original stock 4.1.2 T-Mobile update, only that I rooted the phone afterwards. This isn't a custom TW ROM. The weird thing is that it seemed to have taken files from Embryo v6.10, which was based on an ATT custom TouchWiz ROM.
