First big thanks to Dhacker29 for taking a moment away from ICS to help us fix .901's radio on custom roms

Big tushy note: This does NOT install the .901 radio. It only enables it for those people who have already upgraded to .901 and want to use custom roms.

This method has been tested by myself in safestrap. Use bootstrap at your own risk.





I kinda shotgun'd this thing and grabbed all the ril files. Dont know if they are ALL required or just one I haven't fully tested.

you need the following files from .901's system/lib

lib-mot-lte-ril.so
libmoto_nwif.ril.so
libmoto_qmi.ril.so
libmoto_ril.so
libppd_plugin.ril.so
libreference-cdma-sms.so
libreference-ril.so
libril.so
libril_rds.so

(thanks to crashercarlton for setting up the files for download)
Download (Original)

Download (Mirror)

1. Download files
2. Extract to SD card
3. Load up custom rom
4. using root explorer, set /system/lib to r/w (switch at the top)
5. find your extracted files on your SD card and paste them into system/lib using root explorer
6. Choose replace for all files.


IT WORKS! Sent numerous txts from ICS Alpha 10 on .901 radio

Prebuilt roms w/working radio for .901:

Some people are going into safeboot with some odd issues. You must wipe data, cache, dalvik and format /system before using your rom on .901. Sorry it's annoying, blame motorola....

Eclipse has been updated to include the .901 system and .901 radio files. You can find it at http://www.eclipserom.com or go straight to the Eclipse Rom 2.1 rc1.

KINETIX_V1.0_Final SIGNED (.901 OTA Compatible) download
WIPE DATA, CACHE, DALVIK and FORMAT /SYSTEM PRIOR TO INSTALL

Liberty (.901 OTA Compatible) download WIPE DATA, CACHE, DALVIK and FORMAT /SYSTEM PRIOR TO INSTALL

If my phone acts up like it is currently, i may go for it, but i just rebooted for the first time after getting everything installed so i think it just needs some time to cool down...

EDIT: i've never ran 893. so i dont know how it is really, i've been on 894 since that leaked.

I hear you. I've never seen an OTA

Edit: damn Swype! I've never seen an ota improve the radio so ridiculously. In places I couldn't get service,I now have two bars. Even my wifi picks up better. Most OTAs are trash. This is not

I second what he says. Its working like it has a Motorola radio in it now. I usually saw 200Kb/sec 3G at my computer and am now getting 11000kb/sec 4G at it. I live in a fringe area that isn't on the map for 4G too. I can't wait to see it in action in an actual 4G area.

Damn you guys are really tempting me. I live a few miles out of the area around Sacramento's and their Airport's 4G service area.
