View Full Version : Gingerbread Call Quality Hack - EVRC-B Possible?

06-01-2011, 04:15 PM
I used the call quality hack on Froyo (Dial ##7764726 in the dialer and changed the Vocode to EVRC-B) and noticed calls did sound better, and was wondering if this is possible with Gingerbread? When you dial the number and go into the menu, it doesn't give the same options, and I don't see anywhere where to change the Vocode.

These were the instructions that worked on Froyo:
Step 1: Open the Dialer app on your Droid X and dial ##7764726. Press the Send button
Step 2: Enter 0000000 as the password and click Verify.
Step 3: Open the menu entry 04 Vocode.
Step 4: In this menu, select the option EVRC-B. Press Apply.

Yes it is, after you put in the password, go to test mode, hit next a couple times and it'll be there at the top. The only problem with Gingerbread is that it doesn't stick after a reboot, so everytime you reboot your phone you have to do it again.

As a nooooob to the world of hacking, what does changing the setting from EVRC to EVRC-B do? Does this allow the other person to better hear you or you hear the other person, or both? Does it require more battery life and if so, is it worth changing in your opinion. Thanks!

The EVR-B runs on a stronger bandwidth...basically it like stepping up a home router from 802.11b to 802.11n the result in theory is clearer communication. Why our phones are not set to automatically be on the better channel is not clear other than it is still standard policy to have the EVR hard coded as preferred setup.

Also, in GB, after you reboot your phone, you loose EVRC-B and have to reset it back up... So as long as you don't reboot your phone, or your phone doesn't reboot on its own lol you should be fine to change. It simply works on a higher bandwidth channel for clearer voices, does nothing for signal strength.
