Epic 4g Touch Can Now Access All Its WiMax Settings

With Sprint gearing up for it’s LTE rollout, it’s very possible that the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch could be Sprint’s last WiMax release.

That doesn’t mean the development stops, however. XDA Senior Member autoprime has released a modification that will allow users full access to the Epic Touch’s WiMax settings. As autoprime explains:

As the WiMax enthusiasts already know… we can edit 99% of the same values as the OG Epic already using both ##DATA# > View > WiMAX and ##DEBUG# menus. Possibly the most useful edit is setting the Entry Rx levels from -89 to -110.. allowing those in low signal areas to still jump on 4G. The big edit that was missing on the E4GT was the ability to edit the WiMax MAC address. This is what I’m sharing today.

The modification allows users to change their MAC address, which works in conjunction with other menus to help those in low reception WiMax areas to connect to Sprint’s 4g.
As autoprime says:

This Will Not MAagically Give You 4g Reception If You Are Not In A WiMax Coverage Area.

So don’t get your hopes up that this will bring the 4g goodness where there is no 4g, but for those who live in one and just can’t seem to connect, you can check out the original thread for instructions on installation and how to use it.
