    Glad you got it working! I was going to say that drivers were definitely the issue. I believe that MTP USB device (don't take my word for it) is a older way to connect USB devices, it creates a little M in the taskbar and helps connect old devices.

    No p2k4 tab??


    I don't see a p2k4 tab, but p2k3 then p2kwlan, then p2k5?

    This is a droid global phone, I am usually very proficient but am I missing something simple?

    Thanks!

    Did the radio dethrottle, managed to get this for a result.
    Much better than the 1.6mbps down/.5mbps up I used to get!

    First of all the first tweak should be universal (I use it on an OG Droid and its excellent)...what it does is change the way the phones handle receiving data signal...most phones built in settings for those are far behind what the networks are capable of...
    Those values listed are the maximum values possible, however not all phones are capable of actually running those values...good news though is it doesn't really matter, the only detrimental effect would be a small decrease in battery life

    And that's just with the local.prop tweak lol
    Btw, what speedtest app are you using? Mine only measures in kbps

    Same app, you can just change how it displays speed in the settings
    Must be verizon being overall crap sometimes over here...I lose 3g lots of times during the day and the phone is fine. My mom gets the same problems with losing 3g, and she has an OG D1.
    Btw, my speeds were with only part of the .prop hack, and the RC hack. Local.prop edit doesn't work on Fenom for whatever reason, guess I have to go track down Fenuxx on that.:biggrin:

    Edit: I did put them into the build.prop

    If it doesn't work in local.prop, put them in the build.prop it has the higher priority...the local.prop can't override the build.prop but the build.prop can override the local....most local.prop tweaks can be put in the build.prop its just easier to edit local.prop lol

    ok so i did the radiocomm hack before but have wiped/install/sbf since then so i went to do it again. i did everything it said and it turn green and was successful. then i rebooted and while the phone was off unpluged. on the reboot i got the m logo but never got to the bootanimation. its like my rom got wipe/erased. so i reinstalled the rom cause i was lucky enough to have the recovery pop up and without any wipe, everything is back and lost no data. my question is installing the rom again, has that undid the radiocomm hack? do i have to do it over again?

    Doing the Radiocomm hack? That hack might only apply to devices with a gsm radio, but I'm not really sure.
    Little Side note: My speeds have crashed hard as a late, so I'm going to redo the Radiocomm hack and see if it has any results. I might've gotten throttled...

    After. I got throttled alright...

    Default Values

    For the sake having them in-case of fire; does anyone know what the default values were for the radiocomm hack?

    Just remove the corresponding lines from the file and defaults will be used.
