Problems after MoDacoing - help please!

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

My first post, and it's for asking all your help.

I followed these instructions:

http://theunlockr.com/2009/08/27/how-to-ro...ro-in-one-click

And then these ones here:

http://theunlockr.com/2009/08/27/how-to-lo...n-your-htc-hero

To load this ROM into my Hero:

http://content.modaco.net/hero/2.6-update-...core-signed.zip

I had previously upgraded it to the 2.73xxx thing.

Market application is no longer working. It says "Android Market Terms of Service", "loading", and it never ends......... any ideas??

And, what it's worse, web browsing does nothing. The browser opens when asked for from another application, but it doesn't want to load anything in it........

Please help!!!

Many regards from Santiago, Chile.

Thanks a lot,

MO

Thanks.

I have, but nothing seems to happen... wifi now seems to be working propoerly... but no edge connection at all. Have checked configuration of the APN thing several times already......... when I turn 'mobile network' on, it tries to connect, then it steps back, and stays off, and you cannot do anything afterwards...

Any ideas???

Cheers,

MO

Now this is strange.............

I deleted the APNs, and created them again, with only the basics settings. It's now working - smoothly, actually! Sync for mail, contacts, and calendar, Market place, browsing, everything is working....

BUT... when I turn ON wifi, browsing stops working. Everything else keeps working ok, but no browsing at all.

Any ideas. Please help.

Many thanks!!!

Delete the proxy and port settings and leave them blank in your apn thats probably the issue.

Man, that was good, Beekhouse! Without believing much, went to my APM settings, deleted both port and proxy, rebooted (after not working without doing it), and it's working just nice.

So, big thanks to you!

No problem, the browser remembers the proxy and port from your 3g settings so it can't connect using Wifi. But the port and proxy are not needed so you can delete them.

Had same problem, cost me a week to came with the solution tho.

Thanks, again!

Everything seems to be working right... except 3G! There is no way I'm able to connect to 3G...

Is there anything I can do???

I've read somewhere that 3G is not fully supported by the Hero... what am I supposed to do??

Thanks and regards!

You didnt delete your whole apn right? If 3g is not working then your apn is not filled in correctly.

Maybe just delete your apn and make a new one without the proxy and port like you already know.

Excuse me butting in here but I have a similar problem. I was going to post a new thread but that seems pointless.

Couple of days ago I flashed a brand new Hero with the 2.8 ROM + enhanced + Wavesecure. I put in a brand new unlimited text and Internet O2 PAYG SIM. No 3G - APN settings were wrong. I eventually got through to O2 CS and they gave me the correct APN settings (at least I assume they're correct). The settings menu says that 3G is connected and the G or H icon appears next to the signal strength so all seems to be connected.

However, I can't connect to anything - no Market, no Web, no Twitter, etc, nothing connects. Web pages simply claim that the "web site may have moved or be down". Phone and text is OK.

WiFi is fine.

I'm minded to do a Nandroid restore to see if it works on the original ROM but I don't want to be arsed if I can avoid it.

Is there anything else I can look at or try first?

I did a nandroid restore and all was fine.

I just reflashed 2.8 core and it hung on reboot, I had to take the battery out. Battery back in, recovery menu, wipe, reboot and it's fine, 3G and everything.

Going to reflash the enhanced and wavesecure upgrades now.

I flashed the 2.8 enhanced and wavesecure packs and now it won't connect on 3G again.

It was ok on the factory rom and on 2.8 core.

Going to reset back to factory settings and start again. Weird!

It seems that my problem, unfortunately, is the type of band my mobile operator uses... it is 1900 MHz.

Is there any chance that through using the radio rom images available I could overcome this "minor" problem.......????

no, and doubleposting won't help either.

have you tried installing the apps from the enhanced pack manually? just a try, but maybe it helps.

No, I haven't, yet. Haven't had a chance to do anything else with it.

It just seems very odd that the core rom works, and the enhanced pack works on my G2 yet it breaks the 3G connectivity on this hero. Why should it be fine on one but not on the other?

Sorry for the double (or triple) posting... but it seemed different people were reading at different threads...

Thanks again!
