    GB .595 Questions

    Hey all. Been following the forums since I got my X back in January and have been loving the heck out of it. Since I got it with Froyo I had been DYING to get GB. I messed around with rooting and OC'ing and all that jazz. Pretty much my X was beast, especially compared to my LG Ally (good grief!) Anyway I've been having some issues since I got the phone.
    Here's the rundown...
    -Since obtaining my X the WiFi has been GOD AWFUL. Constantly disconnects and reconnects, and seems to have actually gotten worse since I updated to GB .595.
    -I have SBF'd back to .340 and upgraded to Stock .595 from P3.
    -I can't seem to get any official Verizon/Motorola/Whoever OTA updates no matter which software version I use, stock or rooted.
    -When connected to WiFi for some odd reason my cellular strength decreases from full bars to 1, meaning I constantly drop calls and have even missed out on job oppurtunities! WTH is up with that?
    -Is it really imperative to update .596? If I should, should I go get the deodexed, odexed or stock?
    Are there any fixes for these issues or are they fixed with the updates? If so, where can I get them and how do I go about this?
    Thanks for taking the time to assist me on my first (sloppy) post. If this is the wrong section, or if there are similar threads, please direct me to those or post this one in the proper section.

    To get the OTA you need to SBF to Froyo and the check for system updates. Do not root. The WiFi may be in part of the leaked .595 your using, maybe a bad version? idk. But i would SBF and get the OTA, i love it or just use P3's leaked and pre-rooted .596 OTA

    I have SBF'd back to stock 340 and opted for the update in the "About" section under settings, but I still get "No update necessary". Also I have seen at least one or two other threads on other sites asking about the cellular drop while on WiFi and it's apparently still puzzling to others. I'm really sick of seeing "Idk what your problem is but my phone works great!" Not a gripe, just an observation. Anyway, thanks for the advice. I'll give it another go. Also, is there any differences between the 595 and 596 softwares? Still need to know whether or not a .001 software upgrade is actually necessary.
    Any other solutions or even anybody else notice these same issues?

    Ok so I updated my X to .596 odexed and flashed the Hateraid 1.5 rom from DrewGaren. My cell service still drops but otherwise my phone is super fast and as of yet I have no more complaints. Also the WiFi seems to be working alot better. Thanks for the response dshwartz.

    If your service still drops then you probably have hardware issues. I'm glad your wifi is working but I'd assume that if wifi improved then so should the cellular capabilities.
