Flashed this and FR12 last night and after taking the phone off charge around 8am and making about 20 min of calls and not much else, i am down to 52% battery which if anything is worse than the previous baseband. GPS lock is definitely quicker though and gets a lock in the middle of the office i work whereas Nexus One I had would be lucky to find 1 satellite

Have you found your in-call sound quality to be any better after updating the latest baseband? I think mine is a bit better, but I have to keep the sound level at minimum and still it sounds like it's way too loud and distorting.

Is it possible to tweak the sound level somehow? Because of this, the phone is unusable and it is extremely frustrating because you simply cannot hear what the person on the other end of the line is talking about.

I get random reboots as well, usually using charging at night. I am going back to the Stock Dutch image, root it, apply the dexopt fix and see if it improves battery life.

I'm running MCR FR 12 on my LG O2X (custom, baked in kitchen)

I'm not sure if I should flash this.... Is it included in FR12? If not, should I flash it and what will the benefits be?

Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions, but I hope someone can clear it up for me :)

I flashed it, and mine is still totally useless. In-call volume at its minimum and still too loud and unclear. I have already gave up on this for now...

Hope someone can help me here. I have followed the previous threads with no luck at all. Each time I get the time out message and then error. I had previously flashed FR12 and this

baseband then tried the Eternity kernel, which kept going in a boot loop. I decided to go back to FR12 and update to this baseband but have only succeeded in putting FR12 on the phone, but with this I get a "No Network" message, (O2 Simplicity, UK), even putting in the APN manually (using the settings from a Samsung Galaxy which I use as a second phone with the same SIM card.

Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have checked in the phone info and it shows as "baseband unknown", hence no signal ,though wifi works but the phone is useless, really would like to know how to get a baseband back on the phone.

I got the same problem, if your phone detects no baseband it would seem the baseband tool will not work :)

I have tried everything for over 15 hours today, nothing will work so far, I need someone to make a default NVflash rom with the latest baseband please, can paul ammend his orginal NVflash rom and incorp the latest baseband, otherwise this phone will hae to go back to LG :)

Have you manged to sort out your phone yet? Managed to get mine going again by using the firmwares on XDA ( info in this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1055757)

Took quite a bit of time and numerous uninstalls and reinstalls of smartflash but then it just suddenly worked, so persevere and good luck.

Yeah, I find that booting the phone into S/W Update mode first THEN starting the SmartFlash or NVFlash apps give less timeout errors than the reverse order. Although the reverse order is often quoted as the "correct" order.

Seems to work better with no consequences to go phone -> software rather than software -> phone.

Now very unhappy!!!!!!!

After restoring phone back to having a baseband I successfully flashed Fearkill 6.1 rom.after booting saw that I had put on the lg not the vanilla version so downloaded the vanilla and put onto the sdcard. Booted into cwm and factory reset and wiped davlik. Then installed the rom and the phone booted back up and I have NO BASEBAND again!!!

Why would that happen?

So now back to square one trying to get a baseband back in again. Retracing my previous steps but keep getting the time out again.

Back in business again, only took 30 mins to sort it out. If anyone knows why the baseband disappeared of the phone please let me know so I know what to look out for when flashing

Did 20110315 also rely on a changed RIL in the ROM?

The reason why I'm aksing is, that since CM7 are based on 20110218, there are probably going to be some problems using 20110405. Since NVflash doesn't restore the baseband knowing that the 20110315 release relied on the same RIL as 20110218 would be nice to know.

Now back to square one no baseband. Can't understand why it would disappear of the phone like this. This time I did not flash anything just picked up my phone and noticed a no network message, so I am now back to trying to get smartflash to work again :mellow::-(

Another question, "Why when using smartflash does it timeout on a fls file but happily flashes a bin file?"

No luck at the moment, is this the only way to put a baseband on the phone??

First I would like to thank you because you fixed my phone after I trashed it a bit :mellow:

But now I have noticed a little problem, I can't find some apps in Market. I also tried to install them from https: / / market.android.com /, it says "The object is not compatible with your device". I've tried to fix this for 2 days, but have no clue what is wrong. I have compared with a O2X which had never been flashed with another ROM, etc.. and I can only find one difference in the "Ap App Version". When you walk into the hidden menu (1809 # * 990 #)> Version Info> SW Version Info> Ap App Version. Could this be it?

Apps in question are "Swedbank" and "Wolfram Alpha" maybe some more.

Oh, and I can find those apps on the other O2X.

Backup internal sd to PC

Nandroid via CWM

Flash the smartflash package

Boot to cwm

Restore last nandroid

Flash FR12

Reboot

Using Win 7 32bit with XP SP3 compatibly and run as administrator turned on for the smartflash program. With Higgsy's process (minus the Fr12 flash - already using Fr15 prebake), flashed first time with no errors. I'm now seeing about 1 extra bar of reception at home, but it's pretty inconsistent normally so may just be chance. Time will tell...

Thanks!!
