3G CDMA Tweaks for Droid X2 Working on Photon 4G
Not long ago we brought you a couple of tweaks for the Droid X2 that brought 3G speed improvements.While we live in a world of 4G internet for mobile phones, there are still a whole bunch of users out there who either don’t live in a 4G area or don’t use 4G because they like their phone battery to extend past the traditional workday, so they stay on 3G speeds and reap the battery benefits.
Recently, XDA Forum Member mykeevee got a little bold and tested the tweaks on the Motorola Photon 4G. Surprisingly, they actually worked, despite being on a different Motorola phone on a different carrier. Mykeevee tested the tweaks on CyanogenMod 7.2, so it’s unclear if it’ll work with every ROM. However, most in the thread have reported moderate to significant gains in transfer speed.
Those looking to give it a shot can head on over the mykeevee’s thread to check out other user reports to see if they could get it to work as well or straight to the original Droid X2 thread to try the tweaks for yourself. As always, make a backup before changing anything in case you wish to revert.

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...
