Galaxy S3 LTE apps in System folder....

Recommended Posts

I started a post on xda-developers about our issue linking to Robert's article on the connection/threshold issue.


A developer on there pointed me to two apps in the system/app folder:





In order to actually get to what activities they use you have to install a 3rd party launcher like Launcher Pro then hold down on the home screen: shortcut>>activites>> scroll and find the two apps and put a short cut on your home screen for each activity listed under each app. I played around with the apps a little, but I am afraid of really borking up my phone, so anyone that has an S3 that is more knowledgeable in this stuff want to give it a try please tell us if anything is useful in getting the thresholds turned down. I will list the activities you can do which each app:



1)LTE Functionality test

2)LTE Test



1)LTE Test Mode

2)Test Mode Setting


Hope this helps.

Nice work, troy96. Now we just need some brave souls in an LTE market to follow through: Document the menu choices and default values, tweak a setting if you understand it and think it would help, then test that hypothesis in an area with known live LTE towers. Hopefully you pilgrims will sort this out before I have to pull the trigger and buy that SG3. :)

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
