How to Flash:

In order for this to work, the HTC Incredible 2 needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.

  1. Download the your choice of radio for the HTC Incredible 2.
  2. Make sure the filename is PG32IMG.zip exactly or it will not work and copy it to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
  3. Connect the HTC Incredible 2 to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    Code:
    adb push PG32IMG.zip /sdcard/PG32IMG.zip<br />
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/PG32IMG.zip
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The HTC Incredible 2 will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the HTC Incredible 2 normally.

1.01.50.0817 Breaks my Verizon US Dinc2.
All x.xx.50.xxxx radios are pulled from RUUs for a Chinese CDMA carrier, therefore they may not connect to Verizon.

Thanks for uploading 0722! For those with signal issues I recommend it. I pulled it from jcase's unsigned system dump last night and have been running it for 12 hours or so and so far so good on MIUI. Signal levels seem improved and a bit more consistent now. Hope it stays that way. Now I can get almost the same signal readings as my OG Droid sitting right next to the dinc2. With 0622 the dinc2 was always 10-20dbm less than the OG. Now they are almost equal.

1. Please mark the latest radio. Or should it be assumed the bottom one is the latest?
2. Is flashing the radio permanent or does it need to be reflashed with every ROM update/change?

1.09.01.0722 is the current Verizon radio. The radio will stay regardless of rom so you only need to flash it once. Good luck!

The 722 radio has improved my reception greatly. Where i would only have 0-1 bars, i now can sometimes get 4. (Something before the 722 radio that i have never experienced...lol) Flashed super easy and no problems since..

I dont mean to be a n00b here but what exactly is the reason for doing this? Does it improve the service? Does it uncap the speed? Is it just something you need for different roms?

Doing a radio update is like basically updating the firmware for the radio(3G, WiFi etc.) Think of it like updating the OS for the radio with bug fixes and improvements. These updates can potentially increase signal strength or increase battery life. These radio's are pushed to your phone with OTA carrier updates such as when you receive an update from Froyo to Gingerbread, this radio would be included in the update from your carrier. This does not get updated when you dial *228(if your on Verizon).

Make sure you select the correct radio and you do compare the md5 hashes because most times that a phone gets bricked it is while doing a radio update
Hope that helps you out.

BTW. This is also referred to sometimes as baseband updates

From the 5.10.605.9 OTA:
Radio Version 1.09.01.1111 (US Verizon)

http://www.multiupload.com/TF7VKFLCB1
md5: 700956620392E953B212C85510788795

Been running it since yesterday AM. No increase in signal for me, but I do not see the random drops to -100dbm or lower anymore which is an improvement.

I've got a couple of noobian questions:

How do I determine which radio I should be using?
I'm currently running MIUI 1.12.9 - will this radio play nicely with that?

I'm just looking to fix the audio issues that this ROM seems to have and although I've heard that the aeroevan aosp 0.7 radio works well, I can't seem to download it through the links in this thread.

the only way to know what will work best is to try them out and see what happens the audio fix your referring to is in the kernel not the radio you dont flash these like you would a kernel. aeroevan is a kernel not a radio.

Lol aeroevan is a person not a kernel. He builds a kernel. And for MIUI 0.7BFS from Aeroevan is the right one. The first 0.7 listed is the BFS one you need. It doesn't say BFS but if you don't get the CFS one then you are fine.

What version of the stock rom were you on before throwing on a custom rom?
If you were on 2.3.4 you have the latest one posted by abqnm above.
If you were on 2.3.3 or froyo, then you don't have the latest one.
I was on 2.3.4... I was sure if the Miui rom i installed downgraded my radio. I see in my recovery that it say radio: 1.09.01.111

****edit**** ok i figured out i am on the latest radio version... its amazing what a little reading can do.
