Let me start by saying I am by no means a Dev. or close to it. I consider myself an advanced Crack Flasher and thats it. I came across this by accident. Noticed it worked and decided to post it in case it could help the actual Devs pinpoint the Bug.

1.Make sure you in 4G area and that your on CDMA+LTE/EvDo Auto. Then make a phone call. Doesn't matter to whom.


2.As soon as it connects while still on the call hit Home>Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage Applications go to the "All" tab then find dialer

3. Force Stop the dialer app, confirm that you want to end it and it should end the call and cause you to lose your signal completely


4.Home>Menu>Settings>Mobile Networks>Network Mode>CDMA/EvDo Auto

5.It should jump to 3G pretty quick and wait for it to connect to google services (Turn Green)

6.Home>Menu>Settings>Mobile Networks>Network Mode>CDMA+LTE/EvDO

7.May take a minute for 4G to show up then it will connect to Google Services (turn green)


Thats how you get the Signal Bar to work. Unfortunately if you receive a call or make a call it messes up the Hack and your back to square one. I have OCD so im happy to be able to see the bars. No more dumb people asking why I dont have service and trying to explain it. I originally posted thison xda figured it could do some good here too

Does this persist through a reboot? If so then we may really be on to something here, but sadly I believe that this is just showing the cell signal not the 4G signal.

No lie the story is that I was playing cut the rope and received a call. For what ever reason dialer force closes and on 4G toggle I had green bars!!!!! Later I got a call and lost the bars but tried to recreate the dialer force close.thus coming up with what you see above!

Just to clarify this is not a fix. All that's happening is statusbarpolicy is getting confused when the dialer apk restores. All that it's doing is displaying voice bars vice data bars.
On another note I think I have a fix for the signal bars.
