    I wish I understood what is different with the older radios compared to the new radios. There is a reason why new ones are made yet. Maybe the better battery life with 799 is because it's not transferring data as fast or drops signal more frequently?

    2339 (same radio in 2639) is for the Passport and 840 was for the Classic. It's my experience with these newer radios that they drain my Classics battery and make my phone hot. I had originally switched to 2252 and 840 over 2339 and it was a day and night difference with the batteries. Phone isn't hot anymore either with 799 radio.

    Sorry to be repetitive, but has anyone successfully installed the 799 radio on a SE Passport, SQW 100-4, either via Sachesi or a nondestructive radio autoloader? When I tried to install the radio 859 earlier, it soft bricked the SE Passport (but not the OG Passport) and I don't want to take a chance, because it would mean having to autoload the OS and restore everything again. Also, does the 799 disable NFC, as did the 859 radio?

    While the OG Passport and the SE Passport are supposed to have identical hardware, I have a suspicion that there is some slight difference in the radios between the two. Could be wrong, of course. Maybe one of the technical gurus here could comment.

    Just installed .799

    I was getting drops on mobile network (AT&T) with the .2639 Radio.

    Is .799 better than .859?

    Thanks!

    799 was really stable.
    Good connection and a stable connection without much drops.
    Batterywise 841 was as good but 841 dropped more easy...
    As i said before, anyone with battery problems should try the combo with 799 radio.
    Runs cool,fast and stable.

    No, the more it drops, the more it has to re-search for the network so the more power it uses.
    Stable radio is really important to have good battery life.

    That, plus the signing token included inside the bar. Would require the black hat to get BlackBerry's signing keys and package a malicious but valid signed file; exceedingly difficult.

    If a signed file has a different hash than what's in the manifest, something is up.

    Anyway, in lieu of a MD5 to check file integrity after download, you can use the SHA-512 after extracting the signed file and accounting for it being in Base64 instead of hexadecimal.

    Posted via CB10
    But I would need to know the what the SHA-512 output should be for comparison.

    You don't have to worry. Regardless of the source of the download, only BlackBerry-signed OSes can be installed on your device. These signatures can't be spoofed.

    One of the things that made me furious with the iPhone 4S was that it would still show bars but nothing would be moving. I would have to flip airplane mode to make it find a new tower.

    Sometimes you want it to drop..

    Oh I will also add, radio changes cannot be done on a new install easily. The file is so small that the auto update updates the radio file as soon as you finish the tutorial.

    I never had that haha...
    It always stays the way it is. Never got the prompt to update again.
    And if you load the bar with sachesi, you first have to finish the tutorial and then you can install it and easely turn off auto update...

    It's far from a hassle and takes 2min to complete...
    No reason to make people afraid by telling it isn't easy to do on a fresh install

    fyi, installing the .799 radio bricked my Classic. Error code bb10-0004. I have to reload OS, and then I'm going back to the .859 radio

    It depens on the file (was it the right one) + the way you did it...

    Yes. This matters. The most recent link put up was to wtr2, but wtr5 is for z30/classic and wtr by itself is for q5/q10.

    I have an Original Passport on Rogers here in Toronto and for me this latest radio is by far the best. I am getting connection in my friend condo downtown and everywhere where I had nothing or "e" level only prior. Even getting LTE if I leave phone alone and use my laptop and hot-spot. All radios before, including 7 series, 8 series and 2000 series in multi combos of OS mix and radio mix never yielded this good of a connection. Battery has been same or slightly better...heavy user so if I can get from 6am to 8pm on a charge, I am happy.

    Can confirm for others, but for me this is a whopper of an OS (no double typing and great connections/radio)

    That you'd need to calculate yourself. It's doable with Bash or Python.

    I got the .799 file from Usman's post #629, and installed it the exact same way I've installed other radio files. No worries, OS reinstalled and back to the .859 radio.
