New ROM 1.2.4 is up
Also separately can be downloaded kernel with volume fix. Just keep in mind that kernel with volume fix is 100% stock, while in 1.2.4 there is custom, tweaked kernel included. Up to you which one you prefer.

BTW it's so quite here

You'll get a busier thread when we (the US) get this phone I'm sure.

Definitely although it'll probably be a while until ROMs begin to be released for both GSM and LTE. We need some folks to create an easy way for a dev to compile both, which clearly doesn't exist yet since we don't yet have LTE devices.

In ITL41D firmware I have found many LTE settings, f.g.:

Code:
<br />
ueventd.init.rc<br />
<br />
#for LTE RIL<br />
/dev/cdma_boot0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/lte_boot0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/cdma_ipc0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/lte_ipc0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/cdma_rfs0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/lte_rfs0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/lte_spi 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/cdma_rmnet5 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/cdma_rmnet6 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/lte_rmnet4 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/ttyGS1 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/modem_br 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/cdma_ramdump0 0660 radio radio<br />
/dev/lte_ramdump0 0660 radio radio<br />
Code:
<br />
init.tuna.rc<br />
<br />
# LTE<br />
chown radio system /sys/devices/tuna_otg/usb_sel<br />
chown radio system /sys/devices/tuna_otg/uart_sel<br />
chown radio system /sys/bus/i2c/drivers/fsa9480/4-0025/switch<br />
chmod 0660 /sys/bus/i2c/drivers/fsa9480/4-0025/switch<br />
chmod 0660 /sys/devices/tuna_otg/uart_sel<br />
chmod 0660 /sys/devices/tuna_otg/usb_sel<br />
<br />
on [URL=property:ril.modem.lte]property:ril.modem.lte[/URL].powercontrol=*<br />
write /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1/power/control $ril.modem.lte.powercontrol
Code:
<br />
init.rc<br />
<br />
setprop net.tcp.buffersize.lte 524288,1048576,2097152,262144,524288,1048576<br />
So could be that there wont be separate firmware for LTE devices. But I'm not sure since I never worked with LTE device before.

Oh, I don't think it'll never happen. It'll just take a while before devs hammer out the "standard way" to make ROMs work for both. That said, it'd ROCK if it can be a single release instead of needing to be compiled separately!

It all depends on firmware structure. LTE devices might need different radio, or binaries, or libraries, or kernel or everything together. You can always include device detection script in updater-script so that proper files are copied to proper device, but it's more like including two ROMs into one package, so it's more workaround then solution. If it will be just few files then it's not a problem. It can be done like I did it for my Desire HD/Inspire 4G or Sensation/Sensation 4G ROMs. But I'm very new to Samsung development and I don't know yet their software strategy. I guess there should be two main firmwares - for Europe and for US.

I must say that I'm incredibly skeptical that Samsung/Google would have that elegant of a solution here. Given that Google already said that AOSP code will NOT work for LTE devices is one indication. Another being how immature LTE is right now, especially that the GNex LTE still has a first generation LTE chipset. Perhaps in another year or two it might be easier where the compiled code will treat LTE and non-LTE similarly. But I can't believe it could be a single firmware at this point. Would love to be wrong!

hm that probably means double work

Hopefully it just means extra work until somebody releases a repository of AOSP with compiler directives to include/exclude LTE/GSM components. I would hope that the RIL for both would have an identical interface on the Android side of things. But I'm out of my area of expertise now, so I'm not sure if that's possible. Might need slightly different (extra) API calls for doing things like disabling LTE for 3G or something like that. But hopefully we can get a branch of AOSP to makes that easy for everybody with compiler directives - that's how I'd do it anyways. Then just let everybody else use that as a base and pick at compile time which one to build.

I did some reading and I'm afraid it wont be that easy. Probably we'll need separate ROMs for both LTE and GSM devices. But... we'll see once LTE SGN is released
