CellularInfo for iOS: Beta Released (was Coming soon)


Recommended Posts

Still working on it. The un-sandboxed (jailbreak) portions of it are proving to be harder than I thought they would be. Buuuut because I'm extremely busy right now, I'm willing to distribute it to individual devices. Basically just the Notification Center widget, no fancy features without root access. Anyone that wants to try it can just PM me their email and I'll get you set up.

But it does still require a jail broken device, right?

iOS has long needed an app to display info about the cellular connection- we have Field Test but it's rather hard to type in *3001#12345#* while driving. So, I made CellularInfo. Supports all iPhone

Some good news. planetbeing never replied, but I've gotten CellularInfo to work on my own on jailbroken 8.4 with some fake code signing and entitlement magic. The app is working perfectly. I can't say

Thanks for stepping in for me, AJ and Robert! The OP sent me a PM within minutes of you guys posting and PMing me as well. As I mentioned somewhere around here a couple of weeks ago, I'm not able to g

Actually it doesn't require a jailbreak. The jailbreak features (which aren't complete anyway) are just disabled.

The developer needs to add this devices UDID to a build."

I'm just trying to get as many people included in this build as possible because to add new people I have to upload a new build. I'll upload soon.

I got the same thing about the UDID too. I wonder if crashlytics sends that info once we install the profile?

It does, I have to register them in my account before making a build that includes them.

Ah, ok. That makes sense. I had a developer account back in 2009, and I'm sure things are far more advanced than they were then.

Yay!!!  :D

 

Oh how I have missed this data.  Thank you.  :tu:

 

Edit:  It is kinda neat to see just how infrequently and often times inaccurate the dBm levels are in the status bar provided by Apple in lieu of the dots.  I love being able to select the data refresh times.  Good call on 2 seconds - seems appropriate.

Alright uploaded the first build. Everyone that's included should've gotten another email, use that to download it. The icon is a work in progress sorry  :P

Oh, and for those of you who don't know, you can access the notification center widget by opening NC, pressing the "Edit" button at the bottom of the "Today" tab, and adding CellularInfo to your enabled widgets.

 

Also, just found out about this: anyone who I haven't added to the list can use this link to add yourself. From there I'll get a notification to add you to my developer account and then you'll be given access. Much easier on my side.

This app confirms what I have been thinking all along.  I can pretty much never get my phone to cycle from B25 to B26 without first going to 3G.  Hopefully a fix is in the works with a future OS update.

Very cool!  Does the Notification Center widget refresh itself or is that only when I reswipe it down?

 

I assume the Show LTE Band is a jailbreak-only option?

I don't trust my dBm levels for EVDO/eHRPD. It calculates them itself because the OS doesn't give a hard dBm value. LTE is exact though.

My phone does that all the time, might be an issue with your phone in particular.

There's a "Refresh Time" setting in the app, the widget uses that. It's 2 seconds by default. I'm working to have it refresh whenever the baseband reports new data.

Show LTE Band is jailbreak only, and it's proving to be a hard feature to implement. I'll see if I can get it done.

The code for that feature isn't enabled, no way is that working for you. You can see "B25", "B26", or "B41" in your status bar instead of just "LTE"?

 

 

 

Does this distinguish between sprint b41 and clear b41? I forget if you managed to work that out.

 

 

Anyways! This is awesome. Thank you!

It's supposed to, but I've never seen it say Sprint B41 yet. Maybe one of you will.

 

ALSO: I don't believe the LTE bandwidth is reported correctly. I'm probably just interpreting the value from the baseband incorrectly.

    • A ton of them are from Extenet which afaik is Verizon's primary small cell partner here. I also see a bunch for Mobilitie which was Sprint's primary partner and Crown Castle which is T-Mobile's primary partner. I wonder if T-Mobile plans on contracting both for small cells going forward. If so, that's a lot of combined potential small cells, though still less than Extenet. By far the least are New Cingular which is likely AT&T. The wildcard is Transit Wireless who seems to be branching out of the subway system and is deploying quite a few new sites.
    • NYC DOITT database was updated about a month ago. Imported all the new oDAS node locations into my map. Haven't yet spotted anything with the new design in my travels through Williamsburg & Bushwick. Almost 1400 newly proposed nodes (since 3/5/21) is pretty incredible, though. Made my way up to Harlem and City College this past week. The site (eNB 55893) covering the north side of the campus STILL hasn't been upgraded from B2/B66 (dual APX16s). Pulled ~70Mb/s down on what is essentially an empty campus. Wish I knew what the deal is with that site. I almost wonder if it might be easier to work with the school and keep the Sprint site on top of the engineering building (Steinman Hall, across the street from their current site), instead.
    • Just saw this permit for a very rural area:  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/21110744CBP/Snohomish County It sure looks like a T-Mobile site number (SE01794A) and mentions "ADD 2 ABIL FOR N1900 N2100" First time I have seen a permit mention n1900 or n2100 (would this be n2/n25 and n66?). In fact, I searched all of the major locals on that site and not a single other permit mentions n1900 or n2100 (and none mention n2 or n66).

    • That's a good point. Everything costs money and Sprint just didn't have enough to spend on its network to be truly competitive vs the other carriers. Sprint's heavy debt load and the insufficient support it received from SoftBank really prevented Sprint from getting ahead of the curve enough to get breathing room.... and for these improvements to be substantial enough, consistent enough and timely enough across its network to have a meaningful impact on customer gains or retention, which is ultimately the measure of market competitiveness.
