I'm curious to know which carrier the Korean radio XXKC1 is for.. Is it KT , SK , or LG?
My Nexus with KT Telecom, after OTA upgrade to Android 2.3.4 has M200KRKC1 perhaps it is outdated..
ATM I have the radio recommended by as the "NS_Collab Radio" XXKB3 flashed via Recovery and it is working ok..
I always achieved HSDPA with official radio and the XXKB3 alike and isntantaneous switching from 3G to Data in all cases.. downloads are never interrupted. I do a lot of switching as my wifi router isn't very strong,I have unlimited data plan and i leave it to switch whenever I leave the area of my router at home. Calls over SIP are never interrupted either.

Not sure about the NS collab radio history.. is it official and if any tweaks specific to that ROM are in the radio.. The proof is in the eating though, the radio works fine - does all the switching and I've not noticed a change in power consumption. I'm waiting for responses from that thread, Unfortunately, none so far. Applying the principle of keeping variables to a minimum, i will revert to the official radio today.

So for the benefit of other android users, if anyone has more information, respond here. Thanks for the post W7
