New Way: Use RSD Lite to SBF just the radio - this can be done from any ROM or system version!

Follow the instructions located here: Rootzwiki (http://rootzwiki.com/topic/2834-radios-all-baseband-updaters/page__st__140#entry833317)



Old Way: Download from here:

.605 AIO - 15p radio and updater blocked

Download: 605-tbh-goose-15p.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/?bc440un7kyca53t)

MD5: 145F800AB8CC0C1D3DBA8A0D2FC9E1DC

Extracted from .621 SBF file. Credit goes to ky41083 @Rootz for the extration, Team Black Hat for original AIO. This file will need to be flashed from Froyo and installed standard like a ROM. It will put on the radio and put you back to .605 all-in-one.


To install:

Option 1:

SBF to Froyo (.340)
Root using z4root
Install CWM
Put zip on SDCard
Install .605 AIO zip (do the usual ROM wipes (data, cache, dalvik)
Boot into ROM straight (no other flashes) - bootstrap, restore nandroid, etc...
????
Profit!

In the future if you need to SBF use the Linux method as well. That way you can keep the radio (usually there is no reason to re-write the radio unless you were screwing with NV items)

Let me know of any issues. If you have issues entering CWM after flashing a 2nd-init ROM you will need to SBF using the 1KDS Linux disc for .605 (some have reported issues after flashing 2nd-init ROM after first flash (not everyone) in getting back to CWM)

Advantages (YMMV):

Signal reception seems about +5 dbm stronger across the board than .13p radio.
Significantly less random 3G drops while in reception zone.

Signature failed? Were you flashing in stock recovery or clockwork? And were you on Froyo? I believe the keys should be fine.

Someone else reported it @Rootz, so its not just you. I have to look in to the signing process... I just rebuilt my build environment from a crash and this was the first thing I signed, I may have b0rked the signing a bit for some reason, or the .13p RDL file I snagged might not be compatible with 15p due to the funky things they did with the new update. I'll take a look at it tomorrow morning; just got off work and girlfriend is over for the evening. Thanks for testing!

Think my signing was b0rking it. Tore into the old baseband updaters and they were still using the Moto signing (were not resigned) so I rebuilt using Moto keys (didn't resign). Let me know if it works. Everything now is *the same* as the old baseband updaters, so if its going to work the usual way this will be it.

Weird. I checked it out and all the previous flashable radios used the same RDL files (including the Froyo radio). Are you on stock Froyo? I've actually never flashed a radio manually such as this, someone @Rootz had said you need to be on 2nd-init Froyo for it to flash? I dunno. Welp back to the drawing board, see if I see whats going on. Let me look in to my updater-script. It seems to be failing out on that, although its the same updater-script as the .13p...

Cool. Let me try one more thing. I'm going to get the fresh 13p baseband file and just drop everything in there fresh using 7zip. If anything will do it, that will. If that doesn't work then I'mma have to go a bit further into the rabbit hole and that's going to probably take awhile. BRB.

Goose306
04-02-2012, 12:54 PM
Ok. So ignore the fact the .zip says 13p and ignore the fact when trying to flash its going to say 13p. I'm doing this with absolute minimal modifications just dropping in the bp.img radio file and recopying the RDL from the 13p baseband. Just trying to ensure that I'm not breaking something here when changing updater-scripts, etc (although its the same method I've always used with no previous problems...). If this doesn't work then something with the 15p radio is definitely b0rking the update and we won't be able to install via normal method.

IIRC Droid X bootstrap needs to be used on froyo unless you're doing 2nd init. I could be misremembering though.... been a while since I was on froyo.

Well its prob gonna be awhile then :( I'll keep on looking in to it, but I'm thinking its something to do with whatever they did to the new .621 system, since that last one I literally just dragged the radio image in to the 13p update using 7zip without touching anything else, which would indicate to me something else is going on then. All the other radio versions had the original Moto signing from the 07p radio update, they were just drag and drop jobs as well and changed the updater script to read something else.

Grr. Well I don't want you waiting around on Froyo, I'm going to look into it further but it may be awhile. Thanks for your testing Savage, helped alot!

Your guess is as good as mine there. I just know it needs to be flashed from Froyo, I've never flashed basebands myself seperately always just used the one in the SBF going via RSD Lite. You may check the baseband flashing post over @Rootz, might yield you some info there:

Won't work AFAIK, radios need to be signed (and judging by the earlier baseband releases, Moto signed). You can always try it if you want, I've already gotten the radio extracted for ya and the updater-script built. Just take my first download (it has the fully updated script, etc) and pull the certs out of META-INF, rezip and flash (on Froyo of course)

Haha that's a random question, and fairly loaded one too.

It depends on the context the word "kang" is being used. Kang essentially means it was pulled from some other source. In some cases its entirely appropriate and accepted. AOKP is a perfect example. Android Open Kang Project is one of the most respected and used ROMs that has emerged from ICS. In their case what it means is they have merged a ton of code from other sources (with proper credit) along with their own work. This is legitimate.

However, kang can also mean essentially stolen. While coding in Android is open-source in nature, it is generally understood that credit is due to original sources of code. Some unscrupulous people will essentially take someone else's blood, sweat, and tears and pass it off as their own, and even worse some try to get donations off the work of others. This should be avoided.

Hahahaha well not necessarily I used K in capital Kang because it was a proper title. But thats a good way to put it. A lot of the time others will use it to. BMc08GT uses it for YACK (Yet Another CyanogenMod Kang) (again proper title) which is again not in a bad-faith way. It really depends on how its viewed by the community and/or if its easily discernable as someone else's code or not, and whether proper credit is given. Its a bit complicated sometimes.

I dug this out of a quote in a Rootzwiki article and I think it about surmises it well:


The "Word"

We’re going to end this training session with the mother of all dangerous words. You don’t toss this word around. Using this word out of context will get your baby-face beat in faster than I can put a stop to it. That word is Kang. If you see Kang in a ROM title, that usually means the developer borrowed code or features from another developer with permission or acknowledgement. If a developer or another member calls someone else’s work a kang, read between the lines to see if it’s an insult or compliment. Dropping this word without context tells a developer that they’ve stolen code without permission for their own glory. If you want to get beat down, go into a ROM thread and call a feature "a kang" or "kanged". I won’t be responsible for what happens to your body, and good luck to your family in identifying the remains.

Let’s try some examples, shall we?
I say “I kanged the toggles in the drop-down menu for my latest ROM. Thanks to Dev Zero for permission to use his code.” I used a cool feature, I acknowledged that I had permission, all is well.
The thread title says “CM9 Kang”. The developer has acknowledged that the work is based off of the CyanogenMod 9 project. All is well.
JeffTheLegume says "BanzaiBazinga kanged my screen transitions for his latest ROM release. I demand it be removed from the ROM." JeffTheLegume is pissed, and BanzaiBazinga better be able to prove it was his own work or else find another way to make JeffTheLegume happy. Your job? Stay the hell out of it; the brass will take care of this one. Commenting on the situation could get you in a world of hurt from one side or the other.
You say: “That weather feature looks kanged from ROM X. Does the dev know about this?” Expect a beat-down of epic proportions, even if you’re right. Save your skin and just report the thread so the right authorities can handle it.

Yes you would bubba. You can do that in 20. I'm pretty sure of steps, but was hoping for conformation from savage. I use wifi only at home to make calls. My reception is horrible. Hoping against hope.

And, just because it's there to flash :)

.15p radio is the one from .621. Generally I have its about +5 dbm stronger than 13p, so it gets slightly better reception. More importantly, it seems *stable* on .13p I tend to get random 3G drops (not massive, but intermittently) .15p seems to avoid doing that.

As far as if you want it.

SBF to Froyo (using your preferred method)
Flash in CWM (5.0.2.0 or whatever the latest is)

Go back to GB -> Flash .602/.605 using sbf_flash in Linux or use one of 1KDS Live Disc. Can't use RSD Lite to get back as it overwrites radio, obviously. Free and clear to do what you want there.

And basically you're right. This entire process, if you know what you're doing, could take at max 20-30 minutes, and you would basically just gain more solid coverage. Of course, YMMV (you obviously do not live in the same town as I do) but there's really no harm in trying as you could always go back to .13p easily.

Never used the .602/.605 tbh zip but I'd assume it'd work as well. And yeah, you're pretty much on it for the rest.

BTW, thanks goes to ky4103 @Rootz, I tried extracting it from the SBF the same way he did, his version just works, whereas mine didn't... don't know why :(

But, we have it working regardless.

On 602 root with 15 radio. 1kds 602 disc gave me a fit for 40 minutes before it loaded. Question. I updated cwm to 5.0.2.0 via rom manager and made back up, but when I use d2 bootstrap to restore AOKP it's still on the old version. Shouldn't it update (d2) or do I have to use rom manager to get my nandroids, all of which are made with latest cwm, to restore?

Edit: Went to restore via rom manager. On angel's AOKP 33 with a 15 radio. Again, thanks goose and savage.

Edit edit: First time since I've owned my X that I've been able to make a call from my house without having wifi enabled. Can also download from the market and surf web. Not stunningly fast, but this radio is a big success for me. Maybe my data usage will break 1/2 gig per month.

Thanks for sharing this. I flashed last night, even with a nandroid it takes a while. But, and I don't know if it's just a placebo effect or not, I do get a bar in places where I normally have none. Time will tell, I too am in an area with terrible signal. At home I have 1-2, at work 0-1. Everything worked great, had to do a manual activation because of a lack of Verizon towers in the area. So thanks a bunch for sharing this! I have a triangle in the status bar now though. I had it once before and got rid of it somehow, maybe once I get in an area to do the *228/*22899 it'll go away.

It does not. And if you're going to sbf to Froyo to install the 15 radio, don't use it to go to 602/5. It'll overwrite your install and put you back on the 13 radio

If you have crappy reception where you use your phone the most, then I'd say yes. If you live someplace where you already have great reception, possibly not. But to sbf to froyo, flash zip, update to 602, and restore nandroid takes what should be a hour max. I've seen quite an improvement where I live (crappy reception). Your call.

Sent from my DROIDX using Droid X Forums

Factory reset won't touch the radio. Only way for radio to be changed is via RSD Lite SBF, the TBH AIO (being as thats basically a radio updater and a system updater as the radio only flashes when on Froyo) and a seperate flashable such as this.

Factory reset is generally required when going an SBF. This is because an SBF doesn't touch the /data portion, and if you were running a custom ROM prior to the SBF there is likely a lot of stuff in there that won't be compatible with the stock system. But it has nothing to do with the radio.

Generally, if you SBF to Froyo to take this radio, there is really no reason you would ever lose it and have to go back to Froyo again. As long as you didn't do an RSD Lite SBF, or SBF back to Froyo and apply another radio update, it will be kept.

No and yes. You have to SBF back to froyo in order for the flash to work so you can't flash directly from the 2nd-init rom. However, if you make a nandroid of your phone rom and restore it after you SBF back to .602 you will be on the .15p radio. You won't lose anything but time by doing this as long as you have your backups. Your slot roms will have the .15p radio, too.

So SBF to froyo, flash it and then do I need to update to. 602 before I restore? Also does battery life take a hit?

So, here's my (so far untested) theory that's about half-baked in my head but fully assembled on my computer :)

So I extracted the Froyo kernels, etc. same with .602 kernels, etc.

So be on GB - go to CWM.

Flash Froyo kernel, recovery, etc.
Flash 15p radio
Flash GB kernel, recovery, etc.
???
Profit!?

There is someone who is actively attempting to brick his DX @Rootzwiki. I may ask him if he would be willing to test-dummy it. If possible that would be a pretty awesome breakthrough. I just don't know if leaving CWM is required for the recoveries, etc. of Froyo that allow radio flashes to initiate.

Here's download:


15p_all_in_one.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/?hc3gc2i1fwq527f)
MD5: B24EEB138A4A05980FA1705A1340F2AF


Pre-requisites: Be on .602. It may work from .605, but I'd rather try this theory as pure as possible and make sure it works before we start trying other things. (the kernel is the .602 kernel I extracted)

As this is untested, unless you are aware and willing to take risks, do not touch this. It should be relatively safe. Worst case scenario, you will probably need to SBF. But there is nothing in here that would break reversion or anything like that.


What you need to do:


Unzip the all_in_one file on your computer. You will get 3 separate .zips. Flash them in the number they are labeled. Wipes should not be required.

I highly doubt this would do any sort of hard-brick. We know over-writing all of these files is possible in CWM via the write_raw_image command. However, without leaving CWM the recoveries and whatnot that is need to flash the radio may not initialize. I don't know, as AFAIK this has never been done before... What that means is we may need to leave recovery and then re-enter to be able to run the 2nd and 3rd portions.

However, if so, then I don't see why you can't just perform the kernel flash, then flash a Froyo ROM (preferably 2nd-init as tends to cause less issues), boot, reboot into Recovery, flash Radio, flash GB kernel, then restore nandroid. Seems plausible to me. But, you may also break a ton of (bad things) so do at your own risk. Oh, and I'm going to bed right about now, so if you do want to try it right now know how to save yourself, por favor? lol.

Was this all in the same CWM session? If so you may try flashing a Froyo 2nd-init after the kernel flash (like the official CM7) then go back into recovery and try from there. I'm guessing the recoveries, etc. do not initialize until its been rebooted.

BTW if you can still/are still in CWM you probably shouldn't need to SBF. Flash the third file, as it'll replace those Froyo files you just wrote and effectively put you back on .602. Again, at least feasibly... :)

Thanks for the trial CnB. I have two different suggestions that might possibly work, when you get time.

The first would be to use a 2nd-init ROM as the baseline if you're going to be rebooting. The bootmenu/bootstrap may stick then, as 2nd-init Recovery did not change between Froyo and GB, as it did for the blur-based ROMs. So, you may try something like MIUI as the main ROM, boot into CWM, flash first .zip, reboot, grab blue LED, then try going back into recovery or using the bootmenu options to rebuild the recovery then go back in. I'm thinking as blur-based uses a bootstrap of the existing recovery, this gets broken when the new recoveries for Froyo are flashed. Just a guess as I can't experiment on it myself, but it would be my best guess.

If this fails it may come down to trying to flash a Froyo ROM such as the official CM7 then the kernel and ascertain if its possible to then get into a working ROM. One, this would be pretty sweet as it would mean if we want to go to Froyo we won't need to SBF. (Its effectively like the TBH AIO zip, but reversed) but instead integrating it into a secondary ROM. This would be feasibly possible, however CM7 does have checks in place in the updater-script to ensure its on the correct kernel before flashing. The Froyo kernel won't initialize without leaving CWM first, so its a bit of a catch-22 I believe. I would need to tear into the updater-script and see if I can find that check and pull it out.

Thanks again for your testing CnB, at least now we know nothing terrible will happen from flashing the Froyo kernels/etc. Now we just gotta get it working.

Best of luck. It would be pretty awesome if it'd work. As they use the same recovery, and its a hijack.zip built into the ROM and not a bootstrap, I think it would feasibly work. But since I've never heard of anyone trying, then I don't know. I don't also think actually booting into a ROM would make a difference either besides possibly the ability to update CWM via ROM Manager, but effectively that is what boot menu is doing anyways when you run the fix, and after bootmenu the kernel has been initialized, which is what matters.

Hmm. Well booting into a Froyo ROM would probably fix that, however by then you might as well perform the SBFs to recover, not really saving much time there, lol.

Hi, I'm just finishing up updating my radio to .15. Can I make a nandroid once .605 is done flashing, use that SD in my husband's rooted Droid x running .605, restore that nandroid (on his phone) and will he then have the new radio?

Thanks,
Lisa

That won't work. The radio is outside the nandroid. I restored my nandroid from before I updated and I am on 15P still.

I just want to be sure I got this process down before I do it.

1. Back up via CWM
2. SBF to Froyo via 1DKS
3. Enter CWM
4. Install .15p antenna .zip
5. SBF to .605 via 1DKS
6. Enter CWM
7. Restore back up from step (1.)

Is that correct?

Thanks!

Looks good, but you will need to root using Z4 Root in between steps 2 and 3. Use D2 Bootstrap to enter CWM.

I guess the back up I did prior to changing the antenna was bad. I tried reflashing many times with no luck. But a fresh cm9 zip works fine with 15 antenna.

I gotta get this radio installed if you guys say it helps with the connection jumping from 1x to 3G. I have that problem all day when I'm at work. So far I understand all the steps except for the 1kds ISO disc method I'm more familiar with RSD lite way of sbf'ing. I also see that over on rootz someone posted a zip of rooted .621 and I was wondering if I decide to use that zip what roms are working on it.

Heres what I'm thinking of doing. loading that rooted .621 to get the radio then use rom manager to flash a nandroid backup. But I'm thinking if I do that it will just revert to the old radio.

I would use .602 or .605, not much out for .621. 1kds is easy. Download,burn as iso,load in pc,turn pc off then back on,follow onscreen instructions

Radios aren't included in nandroids. Neither of the rooted .621s posted @Rootz would have the 15p radio. The ONLY way to update radio is by flashing in CWM when on Froyo or via SBF. There IS an RSD Lite SBF for .621, that's how I got to it, this will update your radio, however it will be stock unrooted, you will then have to follow .621 standard root procedures (Milestone X SBF via Linux/1KDS disk, then kernel updates, etc.) it will honestly be easier to SBF to Froyo, then SBF back to GB. Even if you did the .621 SBF via RSD Lite you will follow it up with another SBF to get to a rootable state. Either way you are going to be doing two SBFs, however one will let you revert if you want, and make it so you don't have to patch certain ROMs otherwise they will brick you (*hint* its .602/.605 ;) ) The only other advantage on .621 is the kernel which seems to have a bit better multi-tasking and performance, but this is also YMMV, and you're going into a lot more of a pain in the butt method.

How would you not get that radio when your flashing .621 granted its a rooted and deodexed version its still the .621 base. I think it said if you use that zip you would be stuck on .621 and unable to sbf back to .605 big reason I don't want to go this direction.

The .621 flashable doesn't have the radio included. Regardless even if it did it wouldn't work unless you SBF'd to Froyo first. Radios ONLY take via CWM IF you are on Froyo. Otherwise, RSD Lite to .621. However either method is going to involve two SBF's, so why get yourself stuck on the new version when you have options and choices? Unless you want the new kernel, of course. But either way is going to involve two SBF's if you want a rooted version with .621, just the way it is.

I could probably modify the TBH .602 AIO to include the 15p radio and call it good. You'd still have to SBF to Froyo, but SBF to GB wouldn't be needed after. I'll look at that option as well. I tried a 3-part .zip (where you flashed Froyo kernel, then .15p radio, then GB kernel) issue was you had to leave CWM for it to go into effect (the Froyo kernel, that is). If I had a willing tester I would integrate that kernel into the CM7 official build and see if they could boot out of recovery. If so then SBF wouldn't be necessary, just flash one kernel/ROM, boot out and into ROM, boot into recovery, flash radio, flash AIO, reboot out to stock GB, then flash nandroid. But the Froyo kernel/reboot out of recovery is the part I'm not sure about, and the most likely to break stuff. I could pretty easily put the .15p radio into the TBH AIO and then you'd just have to go to Froyo then flash the AIO and you'd be back to 15p with GB without a secondary SBF.

I may have found a way to revert to Froyo without an SBF... which means we can cheat the system. But I need to look at an AIO, which is unfortunately unavailable to me. So I'm asking for help. Does anyone have the TBH .340 monster zip? This is the AIO to return to Froyo. I have the paid TBH app however they are no longer hosting this file on their servers so I do not have access to it. If anyone does currently have it I would appreciate a link, otherwise I'll email TBH and see if I can get a response there. I tried searching @MDW too but it appears those links have been taken down.

Here's half of it, if anyone is going to the 15p radio or wants to test it:

Basically, I just put the .15p radio in the .605 AIO.

I also changed the extension on the blur_updater to .bak (freezing it)

So, if you want to get the .15p radio, you just need to SBF to Froyo, root, bootstrap, then just flash this .zip. Wallah! You should be back on .605 GB rooted with .15p radio and the blur_updater frozen so you don't need to worry about .621.

Credits go to TBH for original AIO, I just modified it to meet my/our needs.

You will still have to SBF to Froyo first, at least until I get my hands on the monster .zip. Actually, I'm pretty sure I may be able to do that myself even without the monster .zip just by sideloading a Froyo ROM with the kernel, but I can't test it so I'm a bit wary to build it until I can confirm my suspicions. However, this is a crucial step, and should speed up the process of going to 15p radio by about 20 minutes. Do the usual ROM wipes (data, cache, dalvik)

Alright peeps, so here's the plan:

I integrated Wiz's bootmenu into an old CM 7.1 MONSTER from cpvcs. I also did some mods so it will (hopefully) wipe system as that was not included in the original updater-script.

So, what you should do, is download both the .zips below. Boot into recovery, do a nandroid. Wipe data/cache/dalvik (the usual)

Flash the CM 7.1 Part 1 zip.

Reboot out.

Grab the bootmenu on startup (blue LED)

Go back into recovery.

Wipe data/cache/dalvik (the usual)

Flash the 605 aio/radio zip

Reboot out

????

Profit!

BTW, I have no idea if this works. I'm trying to minimize possible issues by trying it with a 2nd-init ROM first and side-loading the ROM, so worst case scenario you can still get into the OS. Froyo uses the same 2nd-init recovery so it *should* work, but there is some unknown variables here, like putting the bootmenu on Froyo hasn't been tested yet. If your the first tester I'd recommend being near a PC in case you need to SBF. Feasibly if this works I may just be able to make a froyo kernel flash and bootmenu zip without the ROM, so the downloads will be significantly smaller. But, if you want to try this, it would be greatly appreciated, I can't test it as I'm on .621.

Goose, if you could have the CM install script place a file called ".bootmenu" in /data, it will stop at bootmenu during the first boot. Putting a file called ".recovery_mode" will force it directly into cwr as well.

It can be blank. HijackedBootmenu just looks to see if the file exists. Most scripts echo a 1 into it, but it isn't actually opened and read anywhere.

Edit - Grr, autocorrect. Just hijack, not the full thing. Neither mine nor the gb hijack actually read the file. I haven't looked at froyo, but I doubt they would remove that is it had been there before

It can be blank. HijackedBootmenu just looks to see if the file exists. Most scripts echo a 1 into it, but it isn't actually opened and read anywhere.

Edit - Grr, autocorrect. Just hijack, not the full thing. Neither mine nor the gb hijack actually read the file. I haven't looked at froyo, but I doubt they would remove that is it had been there before

Everything is working fine for me after flashing this and sbf to 602 with the linux method but im sorta curious on something. This was my first time using the Linux way to sbf and I was surprised that all my apps and even my screen saver was still intact after the sbf. The only thing I needed to do was root and install VorteX like regular. Is that normal?

Here's half of it, if anyone is going to the 15p radio or wants to test it:

Basically, I just put the .15p radio in the .605 AIO.

I also changed the extension on the blur_updater to .bak (freezing it)

So, if you want to get the .15p radio, you just need to SBF to Froyo, root, bootstrap, then just flash this .zip. Wallah! You should be back on .605 GB rooted with .15p radio and the blur_updater frozen so you don't need to worry about .621.

Credits go to TBH for original AIO, I just modified it to meet my/our needs.

You will still have to SBF to Froyo first, at least until I get my hands on the monster .zip. Actually, I'm pretty sure I may be able to do that myself even without the monster .zip just by sideloading a Froyo ROM with the kernel, but I can't test it so I'm a bit wary to build it until I can confirm my suspicions. However, this is a crucial step, and should speed up the process of going to 15p radio by about 20 minutes. Do the usual ROM wipes (data, cache, dalvik)

No idea. It sounds like a Google issue. Market data is backed up on their servers. That's why you can have multiple devices getting your paid apps without having to repay on all of them.

Alright peeps, so here's the plan:

I integrated Wiz's bootmenu into an old CM 7.1 MONSTER from cpvcs. I also did some mods so it will (hopefully) wipe system as that was not included in the original updater-script.

So, what you should do, is download both the .zips below. Boot into recovery, do a nandroid. Wipe data/cache/dalvik (the usual)

Flash the CM 7.1 Part 1 zip.

Reboot out.

Grab the bootmenu on startup (blue LED)

Go back into recovery.

Wipe data/cache/dalvik (the usual)

Flash the 605 aio/radio zip

Reboot out

????

Profit!

BTW, I have no idea if this works. I'm trying to minimize possible issues by trying it with a 2nd-init ROM first and side-loading the ROM, so worst case scenario you can still get into the OS. Froyo uses the same 2nd-init recovery so it *should* work, but there is some unknown variables here, like putting the bootmenu on Froyo hasn't been tested yet. If your the first tester I'd recommend being near a PC in case you need to SBF. Feasibly if this works I may just be able to make a froyo kernel flash and bootmenu zip without the ROM, so the downloads will be significantly smaller. But, if you want to try this, it would be greatly appreciated, I can't test it as I'm on .621.

Per the usual: not responsible for what you do to your phone. This includes me and DXF.

Now, the good stuff:

So, just to confirm. I am rooted on the Vortex RC1 rom and .605 . If I want to update my radio the above method will work and then I can just flash the Vortex RC1 rom back? I don't think the vortex rom will put the old radio back on will it? Also, I have been out of the loop for a while, so to get to the bootmenu I press Vol - when blue led comes on?

Rom's don't have a radio included so no worries on that part,and yes to bootmenu with volume down at blue led, can't help with the rest

The CM 7.1 portion is broken ATM. If you SBF to froyo first though and then flash the second part all will be well. Do a nandroid first and restore it when back. OP has been updated with that info (generally that's where you will find a summary of the latest findings as I'm just posting test stuff and if it works it gets added to the OP)

You try updating recovery in ROM Manager? (Droid X 2nd-init)? If you had recovery prior to flashing the ROM (I assume so since you were able to flash it) the the ROM or some other step broke it.

I had same situation some time ago flashing a test build for wiz using my 605 tbh aio nandroid No matter what I did I couldn't get in to recovery. Sbf'd to 602 root eventually and was able to get to cwm. I think there is a way to do something with the hijack folder or something like that to get back the cwm screen, but I don't know what it is. I could be talking about something completely different. If so sorry.

For both of you - did you try to flash the ROM in recovery before exiting recovery? If so that is probably the cause of it. You need to come out of the AIO and let it boot the ROM (the .605 straight) first then bootstrap. The AIO doesn't have bootstrap installed and/or hijack symlinked as CWM is proprietary files (i.e. they cost $$ so I can't put them in there). If you flashed it directly after the AIO in the same CWM session (though I wouldn't think it would let you as the GB kernel hadn't initialized yet) then that could feasibly cause those issues. In which case yes an SBF is in order as I'm not sure of a way to directly set up the logwrapper for 2nd-init properly... regardless it would need an updater-script which means it would probably need to be flashed anyways though, which you can't do if you can't get into CWM.

EDIT: Using root explorer, do you have a file under /system/bin named logwrapper? Also in the same directory do you have hijack?

For me it was restoring my 605 aio nandroid, opening rom manager, update to 5.0.2.0 2nd init, then go directly in to recovery and flash. I know it was a good nandroid due to flashing other roms without issue. In the end wiz suggested the 602 route. Did that and flashed rom without issue. I've since gotten rid of the aio nandroid on both of my X's.

15p radio plays fine with ROM Manager. I've been using it and there is plenty of others who are using it with no issues... if you had the green one that was not the 2nd-init recovery. Droid 2 Bootstrap is green and that is only with the older versions, the newer versions are blue as well.

And as Onethumb said, not all 2nd-init ROMs contain the 2nd-init recovery. I would check your download/MD5, but if you chose 2nd-init Recovery in ROM Manager prior, and then used the Power Menu options to reboot into recovery, and you still had the green recovery and/or no recovery, there is something else wrong. The 15p radio will have nothing to do with CWM, I can gaurantee that at least.

Nah not really, just that AIO in the OP for when you come back up from Froyo. Life's been busy last few days, only had a couple moments to hop on and off. I'mma look into it a bit further later, just a bit frustrating as I can't test it myself, hook up to my computer and pull a logcat when its booting to see why CWM is failing when the bootmenu loads on Froyo and other stuff.

Wondering this myself. Check the OP. I had a few people @Rootz report the same issue, after flashing they couldn't access CWM, doing a clean linux SBF to .602/.605 (the original way) always resolved it. So if you can't get it working do that. However did you do the steps in OP (flash the AIO, then boot into the stock .605, use D2 Bootstrapper, Bootstrap Recovery, update via ROM Manager to latest D2 Bootstrap, then Boot into Recovery using ROM Manager)? This should re-run the bootstrap and make the logwrapper work, the people @Rootz who were having issues were flashing the AIO then attempting to flash/restore nandroid of ROM via CWM before even leaving CWM after the AIO was flashed. While it'll take, it'll break all sorts of things as the new system needs to have the logwrapper placed on the recovery to re-enter CWM.

I flashed the .15p radio successfully, but I have a question. After flashing the radio it seems to have updated me to .605 Gingerbread. I thought it would just keep me on Froyo? I was kind of hoping it would keep me on Froyo because I like Froyo better than GB (I'm weird, I know....)

Edit- Well I just flashed the .621 modded from RootzWiki, so I guess I'm stuck with GB now!

Already had tried the older .15 install file but I tried the newer 605 all in one zip and it installed perfectly fine only I had the same issue as a previous user I could not get into recovery any way. Tried D2 bootstrap, rom manager but it was just a no go. Ended up doing Linux sbf .602 and rooted then installed from there. Not really a hassle as getting this updated radio is perfectly worth it even if its an extra step. Thanks for putting this together just wanted to point that out.

I am on rooted, stock, .605 w/ baseband .13P. I am unfamiliar with SBF except by using the Linux ISO disc method. I would like to get the .15p radio but am uncomfortable trying it cold. The description here seems like it is mostly for users with more experience flashing ROMs. Would someone be willing to do a how-to for this process written in newbie-speak. I have just done a nandroid backup using Droid 2 bootstrap and I have used Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper to save root. I could use some hand held help with doing this.
Thanks

well... sounds like you have the know how and tools to get it done... like you said you've used the 1kds iso sbf method before... just do the same thing... sbf to 2.3.340(froyo) root with z4/gingerbreak... install droid 2 bootstrap... then sbf back to .605 root and restore your back up... there's no need for vodoo root keeper... unless your planning on taking the .621 ota... but to get the .15p radio... it's unnecessary...

Thanks for laying out the steps for me. Muddled through, and came out the other side with .15p happily chugging away in phone info. I think I'd feel more comfortable with this stuff if the phone made some sorts of noises to let me know it is working. I miss the days of Quantum brand hard drives that would sound like gravel in a tin can when it was reading or being written to. :big smile:

As a dedicated member of the "glass half empty" society, now I start to be curious about the .621 kernel. Do the baseband and kernel talk to each other in some way? Will just flashing to the .15p radio get me all the benefits of that the .15p baseband brings when it is paired with the kernel that is written in .621? Hell, I'm not even certain all that the kernel does. Without the help of folks around here, I'd still be using my Moto E815. Nope, make that my V710. :wink:

The kernel speaks to the baseband but its on a very basic level. Its not a level that any sort of updates can really bring refinement to. That's why you can run any baseband on any kernel, essentially. (At least as far as the DX is concerned since we can't have custom kernels/basebands as all that has to be signed by Moto.)

Because of this, you will get effectively all the benefits of the .15p radio with just the .15p radio. The .602/.605 kernel (they are the same) speak to the baseband the same as the .621, and actually so does the .340 kernel, and so on. So as far as the radio is concerned there is negligible difference in that particular portion.

With that being said, I seem to find slightly better multi-tasking performance and battery life on the .621 kernel. This is YMMV of course though and it comes with significantly more baggage than say just the .15p radio (as to get the .621 kernel you need the CDT which will break reversion backwards).

I'm a lazy, but fascinated, newbie. I am way too old to have the energy to learn, and understand, Androidia at a level of really understanding it. Thankfully, there are people like Goose, Nemo, fabolous, the Black Hat crew, and lots of others. that have made my exploring possible. I've been using RF Signal Tracker to suss out the effectiveness of a Cell antenna amp in my vehicle. I'll see if I can run a comparative map over the same roads, comparing my Droid X with.13p and .15p basebands.

Q- I'm moving from a urban city to a much smaller town this fall and am concerned about reception up there. Does elevation weather affect signal or does it entirely depend on # of cell towers/ triangulation?

Also I'm due to run up there next week so is there any apps that I could use to test signal quality in depth? My rom has numerical readouts to replace the bars up top, but I don't know how to interpret those yet...anyone monitor these, and if so what's the threshold between functional reception and dropped calls/data roaming? Thx AzzE

There are a couple of apps that might work. The one that I use the most is called RF Signal Tracker. I there is any signal at all you can always boost it with an amp. Here is a screen vid of Signal Tracker in my parked vehicle (Amp is in my truck). The beginning at -95dBm is without the antenna amp. When I turn the amp on it raises the signal strength to -63dBm (lower number is stronger signal) -105 dBm is about where I lose connection. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/cadjak/th_Antennaboosterdemo2.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v232/cadjak/?action=view&current=Antennaboosterdemo2.mp4)

Mine is a Wilson Electronics (http://www.wilsonelectronics.com/)#801201. It's in my van. There may be other companies that make similar products, but Wilson has always been what I have used, and I've been happy with all of their products and their support. They make units for mobile applications and for building installation. Whether you can make one or not, I can't say without knowing your engineering skills, but off hand I'd say, "no".

We're getting pretty far from the discussion of the .15p baseband. So, feel free to PM me if you have any more questions.

ok, so for the last decade or so, i've been running rooted froyo 340.

*gasp!*

yes, it's true.

so what i'm wondering is, will this magic 605 15p AIO file be able to take me all the way from here (rooted 340) to rooted 605 (with all the bonus goodies like 15p) without having to sbf and lose my stuff etc?

i mean, i've got backups and such regardless, and if i have to sbf then so be it. but the ability to just update via flashing this zip would be just fantastic. the whole headache of redoing everything is part of the reason its taken me this long to seriously look at GB.

anyway, thanks a bunch for your consideration, and of course for all the hard work you crazy hackers do.

Yes and no (potentially).

Yes, it will take you from .340 to .605, pre-rooted, with the .15p radio. One flash, CWM, done.

No, you may still have to data wipe. Theres a lot of incompatibilities between Froyo and GB, and one bad file that GB doesn't like will throw into bootloops after flashing. It would be advisable to just flash this like a ROM (backup your apps via Titanium, sync contacts to Google, backup your SMS if you so desire - boot into Recovery and wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, then flash) then once in re-install bootstrapper (the .605 is pre-rooted but doesn't include the bootstrapper as that's proprietary and I don't like being sued) if you want to flash another ROM, or just go get Titanium again and reinstall your apps. You can restore apps+data as long as they are user apps not system apps (usually, like 99% of the time)

exactly correct.

i DID have to data wipe (from cwm, factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik) but after i did that, i flashed your zip file and everything went perfectly.

to be clear, for any other froyo diehards like myself who've been waiting for a simply one-step way to get to GB rooted and not having to worry about .621, this IS in fact the magic bullet.

to review, the steps were, roughly:

do all your standard backups (and pray to whatever dark gods you like that your SMS will be restored in proper time order)
get the OP zip file, put in the root of your sd card
get droid 2 bootstrapper
from d2bootstrap, boot into recovery (hit first button, then second)
from cwm do the factory reset, then wipe cache, then Advanced->Wipe Dalvik
then goto install zip file
select your downloaded file from the root folder (or wherever you put it)
wait patiently
boot into rooted GB and begin restoring your settings and apps (don't forget to sacrifice a goat to your dark gods if the SMS restore works properly)
Much Rejoicing.
so again i say, thanks to you goose and all your guinea pigs. life is once again good for this froyo refugee, and perhaps my DX will last long enough now to take me to whatever phone finally makes me take the upgrade plunge.

cheers.

I flashed the Liberty3 ver 2.0 to my DX a couple days ago. Really like it. I noticed that it is still on radio .07p I woulod like to get it up to .13 or .15. I downloaded Download: 605-tbh-goose-15p.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/?bc440un7kyca53t) but if I understand correctly I have to revert (SBF) back to .340 froyo to install this zip. I don't understand the process for doing the SBF. Can I do it with a windows xp machine? what files do I need? Is there a link to some detailed instruction?

Thanks.

Linux solution to your Windows/RSD Lite problems

I (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-sbf/23638-linux-solution-your-windows-rsd-lite-problems.html)'m about to do this now actually.... Finding ooooooooold apks I haven't used in a long time. Someone above said use D2 bootstrap to flash the AIO. I might be completely wrong, as it's been a loooong time, but I believe you use DX bootstrap if in Froyo, and D2 bootstrap if in GB.

So, if that's correct the procedure is SBF.. Z4root.. DX bootstrap.. Wipe all.. Flash .15p 602 AIO. Rejoice and DON'T take the .621 OTA update unless you wants trouble.

Crazy.. I'm still hanging on to the good ole' X. Not a scratch on 'er so I'm keepin' on keepin' on, granted I've been on GB MIUI so long I don't know how to use AOSP anymore. LOL!

Are you wondering if you can sbf without loosing the radio upgrade you did? If so, then yes you can sbf with 1kds 602 disc, flash whatever rom you like, and keep the radio. If you use rsd you will lose it.

So I have been running Liberty forever and recently switched to GummyNex. I really liked gummy, but I would go through a full battery in less than two hours even if it was in my pocket doing nothing that entire time... I decided to try to sbf back and see if that fixed anything.

I downloaded the Milestone X (4.5.604) Linux LiveCD utility from here (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-sbf/23638-linux-solution-your-windows-rsd-lite-problems.html) as my reading seemed to indicate that I was already to the .621 update and would not be able to use the .605 utility on the same site. That worked fine, but I still had the BP_C_01.09.12P Baseband. I just tried to sbf (from a Linux machine) to the .621 update that I found here (https://sites.google.com/site/motosbf/droid-x-sbf-files). That also seemed to work fine, but I still have the same Baseband (Baseband and radio are the same right?)

So, how do I get to .15P now that I am on .621?

09-12-2012, 12:35 PM
The 621 update included the 15p radio. If you SBF the stock 621 in RSD Lite it will give you the radio.

If the baseband still shows 12p then I think you should be able to follow the instructions in the first post of the thread to get the 15p baseband and stay on 605.

If you are already on 621 you should have the radio... Yes, but I didn't get to .621 from Verizon. I rooted back in the FroYo days and have bounced between the ROMs for awhile. I came back to "stock" to see if I could slow down my battery usage. I want to try to get the latest radio before I go back to Liberty or something else.

Hey guys. Is there any way I can just get the radio only? I'm on the .605 kernel running Liquid ICS. Actually I'm kinda scared to flash anything else because I flashed SSX 2.2 and got stuck on M logo . So I used ezsbf and went back to stock .605. then flashed Liquid ICS. My baseband says .07p

Actually its reads BP_C_01.09.07p
Is this the FroYo radio ?
