    Cool Cyanogen 7 NO Cell Service

    Hi all, new droid modder. Rooted phone, no issues. Installed CM 7.1.0-RC1.4. All went well except the actual cell phone. Had no bars. Searching for Service messages. Switched between cdma+lte/evdo auto and cdma only and back again. Ran Fixed permissions and *228. Still no bars or cell use. Ran back up before this adverture so I am currently ok.

    What am I missing?

    Also noticed all my apps were gone when running CM7 but all my contacts where in tact. Do I have to Reinstall apps after running CM7 or is there a way to recover those?

    Tried the search fu but found nothing this specific.

    Whenever you flash a new ROM to your rooted your phone your going to all downloaded apps unless you back them up using third party software, i.e. Apps2SD or Titanium. Since CM7 is a very stripped down, AOSP based ROM you are also gone.a lose any Verizon bloatware apps previously installed on the device.

    As for cell service, NEVER dial *228 to activate service. 4G phones are different than standard 3G or EVDO phones, and dialing it can cause you serious issues. Definitely make sure you have the proper radio for your ROM as well. 2.0 should do the trick as it's the most stable, but some users are having great success with 2.5.

    Good luck!

    find the root only radios (rootzwiki has them for sure)
    download the files
    make sure the MD5 sums match
    rename the file to PG05IMG.zip
    move the file to the root of your SD card (not in any folder)
    power off phone completely, or pull battery
    hold power and volume down
    phone will boot into HBOOT
    it will find the file and ask you to start the flash
    select volume up to say yes.
    it will flash it
    power to reboot when prompted
    you now have the new radio

    GPS workaround is to flash a sense based ROM and establish a God connection and then make sure you can get a lock and after you get a lock restore CM7 and you should have a more accurate Gps
