Knox makes it so you can not install a custom recovery on your phone, well you can, but it trips a switch that to this point can't be tripped back. It makes it so if you want to put a custom ROM on your phone you WILL trip Knox and if you have to send your phone back for warranty they will not honor the warranty. Knox will start killing off the spread of custom roms, IMHO.

Also, the Verizon update enables band 4 support, those that those with AWS LTE can use them.

 

Many people getting easy 70Mpbs+ on AWS.  Sprint needs TD-LTE speeds asap!

Be careful when talking about wanting 70 Mbps on a celluar connection or AJ might see it and start talking about your "e-penis" and then it just gets awkward for everybody.

Those speeds were taken by milan who were practically right under low power distributed antennas. It's the equivalent of us going direct line of sight in front of an antenna and running speed tests and claiming that's the average speed of Sprint. Real world speeds will vary. 

 

In addition, Verizons Band 4 is going to vary depending on spectrum availability. Not all markets will be 20x20 (very few actually) while there's plenty of 15x15, 10x10, and even 5x5 spots.

5x5? I knew that some areas didn't have 20x20, but I didn't realize it got that bad.

 

Do you know which (main) markets are only 5x5?

From the leaks, all the Samsung devices getting 4.3 this fall are getting Knox, GS3, GN2, GS Mini/Active, etc.

 

My question, what if you already have a custom recovery, etc?  Can't a ROM Dev just take the stock rom, strip all that crap out and just install the modified stock OS from the existing custom recovery?

I think will be ok as long as you install a stripped down ROM like you said. If you ever have to return for warranty however, and you flash back to stock my understanding is that once your phone updates while on stock unrooted you're screwed.

As long as you don't have to go into Sprint, Odin a previous release stock rom, then custom recovery.

That's why I said of your phone updates, i.e. don't update your phone if it pops up on your screen.

 

On a different note, I was under the impression initially that the part Knox that is the flash counter was a special hardware piece in the note 3. Maybe the Knox that our phones will get is purely the software component of it and won't have the custom recovery counter.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
