    Correct me if I'm wrong but it should be just like flashing a normal rom. Do a Nandroid backup to be safe, drop it onto your phone, then choose the zip to flash from the Clockwork Mod Menu.

    d/l zip. Move to root of sdcard. Boot into recovery, install from sdcard, find the zip and install.

    WOOT!

    Time to flash. :)

    And iKOWaGhost, I personally download from my phone (cause 4G is faster then my ISP currently), then boot into CWR, go to install Zip from sdcard, go into Downloads, then click the .zip that I'm flashing and click "Yes".

    so are these supposed to help? I'm *this close* to jumping off the LTE bandwagon with the lack of reliability on these phones...!

    So is this a ROM that will replace my current one? Because I'm currently running droid revo and I like it. Sorry, I've been out of the scene for a while. Thanks for the help guys!

    No, this is an update for your radios...what determines signal strength and consistency.

    I just flashed it. Was at -100 with old radio and am currently at -100 with new radio. So on paper it didn't do anything. I'll give it a couple days and see if I notice a difference.

    The update that vzw and samsung will put out will not improve the number of bars you get because what you are getting may be accurate for a true lte device. I believe the fix is more geared toward it staying consistent. In other words so you wont just drop from lte to 1x out of nowhere. Which it looks as if this leak did not really fix. Being i lost signal completely trying to send this.

    Yeah I am not sure what the problem is. The signal on this thing sucks. Forget about bars and dbm, my D1 had better 3g than the Nexus regardless of what the bars were showing. Add in the fact that I had a dropped call and I lose data all together and have to toggle airplane mode to get it back, it seems like it might be hardware related.

    Don't have lte to test, but cmda throughput is way better. Signal strength is unchanged
