    Data Throttling Hack

    I haven't seen a thread about this yet and Google/Searches are more miss than hit. Will the hack posted on No Clock or No Throttle or No clock and No Throttle for Liberty 1.5 - Android Forumswork on the D2 with Liberty 1.5?

    I believe any theme you install on liberty has the throttling hack installed.

    I actually just had to do a full reset of everything due to themes messing things up due to preinstalled themed apps killing it on me. No updates allowed due to the updates coming from the market and apps (facebook and google voice) were built into the theme and the update couldn't make sense of them so they failed on install. I think ill be staying away from themes for now.

    I did end up using the file from the forum I linked and am LOVING my speeds. I know some people are saying that throttling is server side. I agree with this for some throttling. If you end up in the top 5% then it will be server side due to VZW flagging you. The phone itself, however, seems to have a throttle built in to prevent the speeds from going too fast.

    I had a Droid 1 and never had an issue with speed. Then I got it replaced with a D2 and noticed that on most YouTube videos high quality just wasn't an option due to the speed constraints. I put up to network congestion and figured it would pass. It didn't. So I learned to live with low quality. Then I started seeing the posts about the throttling hack and put 2 and 2 together. They were mostly from Droid X users but I know the 2 and the X are close enough to being the same phone that they share a lot of the same software.

    I took the plunge and tried the hack.

    I AM FREAKING LOVING THIS THING NOW!

    My speeds have gone from consistant 850kbps to 1.7mbps on the down and ~200kbps to ~700kbps on the up. I have tested in multiple places in my area and I know that there is a BIG difference in the speeds I am seeing. And this isn't just the speedtest app on the phone. I tried wireless tether and barnacle and am seeing similar speed increases on the connected laptop too.

    If there is anyone thinking about using this hack I definately encourage them to give it a try. I've seen no downside to this at all and the phone is running like a champ.

    I will also say that the themes I tried didn't seem to have this hack applied as my speeds were dismal before I did this. I would love to see it added to the Liberty Toolbox so its easier to put on than having to go the Droid X downloads. We need some more love for the D2!

    Yup. Don't wipe anything just install from zip and reboot. Just an fyi tho, data throttling is only used in some areas and only for heavy data users, so don't be surprised if running the hack makes no difference. It didn't make a difference for me...

    i flashed it to my 1G D2. For me there is a noticible difference on 3G. I've run no benchmarks and am just basing things on my observation.
