Best radio/phone ROM for i900 at the moment?

317 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi everyone.

I got my Omnia yesterday after a month waiting due to stock shortage in South Africa. The Omnia was loaded with i900JCHH1 ROM/PHONE. The 3G connection was very bad with this version of phone/radio FW at my house, UMTS logo appears for a while and you see the bars start to drop every 2 seconds and it changes to EDGE.

I decided to flash it with official Singapore i900DXHJ1, and this phone FW improved my 3G reception as now it stays connected much longer than JCHH1.

To the more experienced Omnia users, which phone ROM you will recommend to me which you rekon is the best radio/phone module out there? How safe is it to flash a different country Radio FW to the PDA FW?

TIA!

there seems to be alot of people on here that rave about the monila 2d... I think its probably due to them coming from the HTC phones to the omnia as its a replication of its interface!!

I prefer the native interface of the Omnia... also, I think the firmware you have flashed to is currently the best available!!!

JJIA1 = the best one for me in all aspects (3G, battery, signal, gps, stability).

XBIC1 = very stable, good battery, but no 3G.

DXID1 = poor battery, slow gps compared to the others, no 3G.

ZHIE1 = very fast gps fix, stable, no 3G

PUIE1 = very fast gps fix, a little unstable and I had some bugs in band selection (GSM), I had to set the network manually because in automatic it didn't find, no 3G.

any further information on other Radios???

I concur with downjones, JJIA1 is by far the best Phone ROM I've used. Battery life is around 2-3 days, GPS fixes 2-3 times faster than XBIC1, which I used previously, and I've had no crashes/weird behaviour till now.

I've flashed JJIA1 under xp and no problems. Just like an ordinary flash, but there's always the risk of a useless phone after. It didn't erase pda part.

Phone purchased in denmark

Thanks X-Pro for the reply, I bought my phone from Singapore.

But when You said there is a risk of bricks the phone, I feel shaking :D to do it.

So I need more information if it is possible to combine DXIA5 PDA with JJIA1 Radio/Phone? please help... I really want to upgrade my Phone part only.

thanks
