Any change log (improvement or fixed) for this new radio.
Also feedback of finding from scope64 and stevie would be appreciated.
Thanks,


Hi khunjj - As i mentioned in my last post - all is good (better) at the moment, but night time the signal always seems to be a little better anyway. I will post on her tomorrow morning, as that is the time of the day that T-Mobile (in my area at least) signal is weakest. However, I will say I'm getting three bars on 2G (only had two at most before) and I've even had the 'H' symbol appear on 3G - so looking promising...

Just added radio 63.18.55.06_6.35.05.31! :D


Looks good to me, thanks Paul.

[tested: WLAN, GPRS, BT, GPS; all ok]

I note a slight change in the version reported by the phone, namely the addition of a 'B':

63.18.55.06U_6.35.05.15 # before
63.18.55.06BU_6.35.05.31 # after

anything to that?

To install an update your phone must be rooted and you will need the recovery image to boot into to install the update.zip


Aah I see, thought you didn't need root to install a radio update.
But I flashed the recovery image (cyan's) and all is working now.

I got a better reception here at work. Sometimes I lose my signal in the smoking area (to cloudy perhaps? :D)
But not anymore... so I definately see an improvement here.

thanks for your help.

My Hero is radio (= Baseband version) is 63.18.55.06U_6.35.04.25
Can you tell me what the U means?
And can I safely install 63.18.55.06_6.35.05.31 ?

I wan't to update to the HTC Generic 1.79.482.3 ROM from Orange UK, you mentioned that this is available without doing a wipe however all the supplied instructions has wipe as one of the steps. I also don't understand the radio bit. If I update the ROM will this not include the latest radio update if not how do I install the radio update after the rom update. I currently have Bassband version 63.18.55.06_6.35.04.25 and ROM version 1.76.61.3 on my device.

I also gather that by doing the nandroid backup, I can restore to the ROM (inc. settings/apps etc) if I change my mind.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure whether the Orange ROM would require a wipe. Easiest thing it just to try it without one, and see.

Updating the ROM does *not* also update the baseband/radio. You install the radio separately, and I would do that first, before updating the ROM. Just copy the radio zip file to the Hero and use the recovery image to apply. Exactly the same method as for applying the ROM update.

Nandroid backup will restore everything as it was, with the exception of the radio.

I have now upgraded my Hero to Generic 1.76.405.6 and latest radio. What I find odd, is that adb shell reboot bootloader doesn't work anymore. I get reboot: no such tool. Manually rebooting and then running fastboot from the DOS prompt works fine. Any reason why this could happen? I did a wipe before.

Ok, I've successfully done the update without doing a wipe. Everything is working fine and the Orange splash screen has gone. However in the HTC Mail app there is still an option to add Orange email, this does not bother me I am just wondering if the update has been applied correctly, it does say 1.79.482.3 as the build number under settings.
Thanks

Seems to work great here. I even got HDSPA which I usually never get in my apartment. Better reception perhaps. WLAN, GPS, BT, 3G and GSM Voice tested.

Ditto... My signal gets better and better with every radio release. Forgive me T-Mobile for slagging you off!

As usual, Thanks to Paul

Ive just bought my htc hero and im pretty new to all this. You are talking about update with and without radio, what does this mean? What is radio and why do you publish with and without? Ive installed(renamed to update.zip and put on my sd-card) the "update-hero-modacocustomrom-1.1-signed" and im very happy with the part that its rooted.
Please enlighten me?

when apply update.zip of radio and after writting new radio complete and reboot, it goes to CyanogenMod and my phone always stuck at "formatting CACHE".
I have to reboot again to be back to normal Hero UI.
Is it OK what I done or I have to wait for "formatting CACHE" to finish (wait more than 10 mins, still not)???
Thanks,

Just select reboot from the menu (formatting cache doesn't say complete and it only takes a few seconds)
